"I THINK I know what you mean, but : Are you seriously suggesting that all women necessarily have a "particular kind of emotional intelligence" that all men lack?"
In short, yes. Women and men have different experiences going through life as a result of being in one group vs the other; as such, they bring different perspectives. The same can be said for folks in different groups of religion, ethnicity, of ability. I'm not ranking one over another, just saying that diversity of perspectives is a good thing.
