Compartmentalization is overrated.

Logic is superior to emotions. If you know even an ounce of feminism's original purpose--it was to prove that women do not solely derive rationalization from a grounding of personal experiences and emotions. This is backwards as fuck. "Validate my feelings" is regressive.

I'm amused how you simply put compartmentalization down to validate your own mindset. Compartmentalization has its own set of costs and benefits, to generalize ("blind as a bat") with your silly preconceptions of the matter to fuel your self validations is wholesomely lolzy. When you have to put others underneath you to achieve 'equality' and fight the patriarchy I can only laugh.

This is the one truth. If someone has to put everything in compartments, they're blind as a bat, no matter how specialist they are. I challenge anyone to put this to rest.


Everyone these days thinks they are a genius. None more so than in the sciences. It needs to be bitch-slapped in a way that their gums bleed and infect their partner with their hiv from their spittle.

Since I'm "the one true deity of existence" (sarcasm), (if he exists would say:) " I made man to be a tool and busy little drone, but man has rebelled." Misogyny and homophobia stem from this religious notion that is partially true: " Man is an imperfect being" Amen Brother!


Man is not superior, and telling him he is is feeding his delusions. It doesn't matter who has the last word when they are all compartmentalized minds that can't see from outside your ass. Logic is not superior to emotions because that is but one point of view that one species perpetuated throughout the patriarchal course of human history.

What do you think though? Discuss.




It seems illogical to have a discussion with someone that declares emotions to be equal to or superior to logic.
Also, I'm not sure if this post is more insulting to the emotionless men or the illogical women.
Maybe it's just insulting to humanity as a whole.

If nothing else, it's insulting to the English language. I don't comment on language often, but could you rewrite this post so it states its points with some semblance of reason instead of bouncing around like a kitten on crack? It's not easy to discuss something that is presented so sloppily.

It'd also be nice if you'd use your pronouns in something approximating proper usage.
"It needs to be bitch-slapped"? What is "it"?
"they ... can't see from outside your ass"? Who is "they"? Why is it a problem if they can't see from outside *your* ass? Did you mean from *inside* your ass? Why not *their* ass?
Argh, it's confusing as hell trying to read such writing.

the way you worded this seems like you tried to make it sound profound, but it just sounds like a whole lotta gibberish.

logic and emotion fill each other perfectly

-Logic knows the truth;
-emotion gives meaning to that truth.

Vision a world that would be based only on logic, what a meaningless dry, stupid world would that be!, we humans need logic to know the truth, but emotions to have the ability to question, why is it the way it is? This is why humans need both

What is truth without meaning, and what is meaning without truth? So both are eventually of same importance, we as humans need both like a tree needs water and water needs a tree to develop the tree, and without the tree, humans wouldn't be alive. So both both logic and emotion essential for living and completion.

So, as I stated in my OP, logic is not superior.

Emotions and logic are both a necessity in human society. However, the degrees they are useful varies upon subject. When it comes to modern careers, logic will get someone much further ahead. In the modern society--it is superior. Math does not require emotional input, nor do many highly demanded fields. Arguments more centered on rational and logic are superior to that of emotional outcries. When it comes to art, psychology, health, sociological aspects, etc emotional intuition and understanding of people can be more valuable. Humans are far more so emotional creatures than they are logical--which is more specifically why such people are highly sought after. It isn't that logical persons lack emotion, they are simply more aware of how to separate it. The ability to seperate one's palpable emotions from rational is superior to not being able to do.

Yet compartmentalization has little to do with degrees of logic or emotion or even with its separation (although slightly more so it has many other cognitive separations). While men generally are better at compartmentalizing--women do also. Compartmentalization is not something you can generalize into logic versus emotions. You should have researched this even just slightly more than you had. Compartmentalizing allows people to focus, more exclusively, to avoid cognitive dissonance. It's a coping mechanism. For example, after a long stressful day of work a person may come home and momentarily place work aside to enjoy the time at home with family. Then you have your more extremes where someone close by has been blown up and a person has to temporarily put any grief aside to focus on the battlefield and a set task. Some are better at this than others--typically women are more interconnected than men and do not utilize this to the degree men often do. Compartmentalizing does not mean that emotion is suddenly gone or nonexistent, it's simply packed for later.
