The Daily Mail citation is virtually useless. The article is basically just a woman taking into account woman who have been prosecuted lately. I am sure if you looked into how many men committed violent crimes it would be easy to make the same comparison. Besides one common denominator for this article is that the woman suffer from extreme cases of PMS and the amount of cases would be statistically insignificant if you were to try and create a proper study.

The second citation is a lot better but does not really support you claim. Specifically the article is about the "Framing Effect" which apparently is an attribute of humans to put more weight into negativ information than positive information. As such woman were much more averse to negative information than men, as they through evolution has had the most to lose if their mate is bad. So for traditional rationality (which is used a lot in economy) which uses terms such as transitivity and logical equivalance it is a known fact that if you state something in a negativ manner or a positiv manner it will effect woman more than men when it comes to negativ phrasing about a potential partner (like 7 out 10 people like this guy would be less important to a woman than the statement 3 out 10 people dislike this guy). So yeah, woman are more irrational if you follow traditional logic thought which very few actually people do as stated in the article.

The third study is not even about the subject at hand. It discusses the different effect the deprivation of serotonin has on men and women. In this case it has an adverse effect on both men (They become more prone to having trouble with focus and substance abuse become more common) and woman (they become more depressed and anxious). So it is an interesting read but it does not really help your statement as it show that BOTH men and woman become more unstable just in different ways. Tbh there are also a lot of studies which show that men are more prone to depression than woman which kinda counteracts this article a bit.

The last one probably supports your claim the best but it is directed completely towards PMS. So in this case woman would only be more anxious and emotionally unstable when they are on their period which I won't refuse in many case. But women are not on their period all the time and many are not affected as heavily as stated in the citation so using it call woman unstable and illogical would be a push.

To put your statement into a new light I want to offer you this: "Woman are doing a lot better in education than men."

Clearly the sex being able to consistently do better than the other can not be as prone to mood swings as you claim? They can't be that illogical, right? Really the studies show that girls have a far easier time memorizing things and learning new things plus they are able to focus longer than boys which helps them to learn more rigorously than them. This trend goes from High School and all the way into higher education. More and more woman are consistently outperforming men and that also goes for STEMS (which however is still mainly dominated by men).

So clearly I would still think your statement wrong and I don't think you even read the articles you linked (perhaps besides the second one).

Now I study economics so my sources will probably mainly come from sites and articles which looks at behaviroal studies from a financial and economic spectrum but they should fit I hope you can deal with the chargong.

www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/premenstrual-syndrome/basics/symptoms/con-20020003 This one focuses on PMS, which is very common for women to experience symptoms. While somewhat under half of all the symptom reports qualify as true Premenstrual syndrome.

There you are. Some citations you can promptly ignore, then return to your incessant name calling and sarcasm.

I know exactly how that feels because in America it's usually the other way around with atheists having to hide their lack of beliefs to avoid being made pariahs. Fuck anyone, regardless of beliefs, who thinks it's okay to stop treating people like people.

You're religious? Does your religion make you hate women? Or just make you ignorant?
