Why is it that if there is a new scientific discovery that shows the similarity in males and females it's plastered all through the media. Yet I read
a new scientific discovery months ago that you never hear of...it's a dramatic difference between male and female.
Scientists working together noticed that whenever the women on the job site were under stress 'they would come in, clean the lab, had coffee, and
bonded. When the men were stressed they holed up somewhere on their own.'
When under stress a cascade of hormones prepare the body for the fight or flight response.
A UCLA study found that when OXYTOCIN in women is released it buffers the fight or flight response and encourages her to tend children and gather
with women. When she engages in this tending and befriending, more oxytocin is released which further counters stress and produces a calming effect.
This does not occur in men because the high levels of testosterone released under stress reduces the effects of oxytocin.
Many studies have found that social ties reduce our risk of disease by lowering blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. There have been studies
that prove having friends reduce the likelihood of physical impairments as we age, and get through times of grief easier. Not having friends is as
detrimental to the health as smoking or carrying extra weight.
When I read this I thought of 911. When these mothers were out there separated from their children, trying to get home. The only thing they could
think of was seeing their children with their own eyes to know for sure they are OK. I know that when it happened, although thousands of miles away, I
couldn't relax until my son was home from school an I could actually see that he was OK.
The agenda of the fanatical feminists is to suppress any scientific discoveries that show women to be caregivers, they have been trying to remove that
notion from our minds saying that we were under bondage to men and we don't want to go back there. I once was told (by a high-school macho-feminist)
that I was denying my feminism by staying at home to raise my youngest son. These kind of feminists don't want equality they want total control. They
want our boys to be raised by someone that has no vested interest in their future as the next generation of leaders, they don't want them raised to
be comfortable with their masculinity...but ashamed of it.
I also found when doing a search on OXYTOCIN that it also affects the relationship between man and woman, parents and children. When we are touched
oxytocin is released, and makes us feel good about the person who touched us and increases the desire to touch them. In men it increases the
production of testosterone and the sex drive increases. In women it creates sexual desire, when coupled with estrogen, it creates the desire to be
penetrated. Without estrogen oxytocin is virtually powerless. Oxytocin increases sensitivity to the sexual organs, nipples and causes a stronger
orgasm and ejaculation. Oxytocin moves us toward sex, sex increases the production of oxytocin, the more touch the more the increase. Without the
touching women don't have the desire for sex, the more touching the more receptive she is.
In todays society women feel more touch-starved than men, probably because they have more estrogen. A woman who doesn't get enough touch becomes
withdrawn and depressed. In this condition a woman can become strongly and even violently opposed to sexual touch. If the condition continues, she may
become so withdrawn that she is no longer open to the very touch she needs.
Interestingly another effect of oxytocin is that it decreases mental processes and impairs memory. This is why hugging and touching can help us
recover from an arguement, it helps us to stop thinking about it and even forget some of the pain we felt.
We must look for opportunities to touch. Even a gentle, brief touch has an effect and the more the better. When watching TV, reading, or talking with
friends make contact with your mate, when walking hold hands, rubbing the others shoulders or feet...so anything that brings your body in contact with
your spouse. Don't forget the children, they need touch too, it creates a strong bond and good feelings.
