It's tempting to subscribe to the view that when it comes to extreme behavior, men win the contest, with women tending to be more moderate. Maybe it's so, but there are an awful lot of exceptions to the rule. I think that men vs women is just too broad a division to be meaningful. Every time I think that men are more prone to reckless behavior, I then remember some crazy woman I used to know.........

I do wish there were more men in the cat adoption agency I volunteer for though. It would be good to have another guy to talk to at the adoption fairs. Guess I'll have to be a pioneer and blaze the trail for crazy cat guys everywhere

I am sure there are crazy women out there. Good thing I do not know any personally. Some of the worse offensive drivers I saw on the road are women.

And I like guys who are not afraid to say they love cats. Like myself.

If a man does not say that he loves cats, this does not necessarily mean that he is afraid to say that he loves cats. Maybe he doesn't lie much?

OK, I meant "cat loving guys who are not afraid to say that they do".

Yeah, and the CEO of General Motors is a woman:

Mary Barra Named GM CEO, Automaker's First Female Chief - Forbes

Next thing you know, this country will have a female President.....
