A major part of the disconnect between the largely female (or feminized) Leftist Liberals and the largely masculine conservatives is not so much ideology but the differences between the way men and women communicate. Of course, this is only my observation and opinion, so it does not rise to the level of unquestioned fact....and that is part of the problem too. Men communicate with words and they give some care to which words are arranged, and in which order. Every word has a meaning and all the words strung together become a message, which is largely intended for other men. Yes, men speak to other men about men-stuff. Women communicate with feelings, or more actually, with tone and sense. The actual words used are not nearly as important as the tone of their performance. It does not matter much WHAT you say....it only matters how you say it. This is particularly true in the English language, which is a spoken language. You could actually say the same English words a dozen different ways, changing the emphasis and tone, and mean a dozen different things. But don't just take my word for it. (No pun intended.) You can perform a relatively inexpensive experiment yourself the next time you are having a discussion with a woman, even one who knows you very well. Stop the discussion and ask them to repeat what you said (word for word) a few minutes ago. They usually cannot because they did not listen to the actual words that you said....they only focused on HOW you said it, and your tone and your attitude. They seldom retain those carefully crafted messages verbatim, they only know how it made them feel at the time. That is why they are more likely to get into an argument with you about something you never said....because they know better what you meant.
