I've always wondered this, whenever they get scared, surprised, excited etc.. females always scream. Males do not scream if they see something like a car accident etc. Why?

discuss amounst yourselves.

No. Females don't always behave as you claim. Sorry. You are over-generalizing, over-simplifying and are buying into, and contributing to, and perpetuating a stereotypical myth. Try other cultures there hikix.

Men don't in fear and panic and sorrow cry out? Uh, sure. If you say so. I'd not be surprised if a fella or two didn't scream a bit or shed some tears when "The 3" bought it.

Try some video of the crowd when the Challenger detonated. No screams-male there - myth. People scream.

Happy holidays,

I actually crack MYSELF up when I'm surprised. I don't scream. I let out a little "Wooo!" and it's just the funniest thing. I couldn't tell you WHY I do it, I just do. It's definitely a "Gotta be there" moment.

On another note though, here's a man screaming... (there's a bunch on YouTube)

I know men scream too, I'm not saying they don't... but if you are in a bank and someone pulls out a gun the first thing you will here is a bunch of women scream.

Location, situation, circumstance............

Were you in a bank when it was robbed ?
Or did you see it on TV ?

Popular media like movies, TV and video games display women screaming because it creates a very nice dramatic moment. Women are also displayed in pornography as screaming moaning vixens for dramatic purposes.

In reality men are just as likely to holler, yell, and even scream when startled or confronted with the unexpected. Men don't have the high vocal range that our female counterparts have, but we still make vocalizations when we're suddenly confronted with the unexpected.

Social conditioning may force some men to suppress the instinct, but they still react with the same adrenalin rush to fright.
Perhaps we just display it in a different way so that it presents as anger and not fear.

Could it be genetic memory for survival ???
Females scream to be protected and men react with anger to be the protector.

No, I robbed the bank.. i got out of prison 2 years ago. When i pulled the gun out the 2 ladies behind the counter started screaming.. i was trying to be nonchalant about the whole thing.

I like that. It sort of allows us to post freely and you can cut and run. I will start using that one

But.......most women have the spirit of fear instilled in them. I cannot say if they are born that way or society teaches them to be that way, but it is a fear response that is nonsensical. I can see being scared when you are about to be run down by a truck, but screaming because you see a mouse is another thing.

I think women should also tell us when they are about to be frightened so we aren't frightened as well. I tend to take shrill screaming as a sign that something bad has happened and I am both disappointed and angry when I discover it is just a reflex action for everything a woman finds unsavory.

Obviously not nonchalant enough......
Perhaps a lower key approach like a note would have been better.



I know I've worked in some very extreme and stressful situations with the fairer sex and they conducted themselves in the same professional manner as the men.

I've seen men puke their guts up and a woman step in to handle the situation, and that was just a babies diaper. I watched a male officer faint while a female picked up a severed head to carry it back to the decapitated victim.

We're all human, and we all react differently when confronted with different situations regardless of our chromosomes.
