Klikkaðar konur

"Hún er nú bara klikkuð!" 
Við höfum öll heyrt af klikkuðum konum. Við sem erum konur höfum verið "klikkaðar" á einhverjum timapunkti. Það sem er hins vegar merkilegt er að þessi meinta "klikkun" er aldrei skilgreind neitt frekar.
Þannig að næst þegar einhver talar um "klikkaða" konu við þig spurðu þá hvernig þessi klikkun lýsir sér.



As Matthew Zawadzki, PhD, (a professor at UC Merced who studies perceptions of one’s own and other’s emotions) explains, “‘Emotional’ is a term used to label women whom you don’t want to have a voice in a situation. When a couple is having an argument, even if a woman has a well-thought-out reason for being upset, a guy might say, ‘You’re just being emotional.’ It’s a way to discredit her instead of having to listen; the words ‘you’re acting crazy’ really mean ‘I don’t have to pay attention to you.’” (Feitletrun mín.)  https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2014/09/75146/stop-women-crazy-emotions-gender
