what is your experience with this issue?

I am assuming the reason Tanya's cat is being protective is Tanya's change in her pheromones, and the cat's awareness.
The very same pheromones that are tuning her husband's ears to be alert to babies crying.
Is that assumption correct? Is this question outside the scope of this forum, since I am not asking about humans?

Everyone appears to need some emotional responsiveness to think both the world and themselves are real, but the following idea seems interesting to me to discuss. I was reading a bit about delusions, and how in a severe form of delusion (capgras) a person might think that their spouse was replaced by an exact duplicate, or clone. There is some evidence that females suffer from clinical delusions more frequently than males-and drawing on a type of methodology that suggests if Y has a problem A… Continue

n summary, 1) there are substantial differences in female cortical activation topography during rectal distension compared with males, in that the insula and anterior cingulate/prefrontal cortices are predominantly activated in females

- The tendency to generalize the women of one region to cover that of all American women has obscured essential differences of class and race. The New England women whose experience has provided the dominant model for women's history belonged overwhelmingly to the emerging bourgoise class. That model of womanhood rested upon a view of class relations that sought to DENY the signifigance of CLASS division----- and promoted the ILLUSION that all men were truly created…

Hi Amy. Just wanted to say girl power (not sure what that means) can be and is esmaculating when abused. 1) Controling the nursery, making the father/partner appear and feel incompetent. 2) having affairs that produce out of wedlock births and dupping the husband/ partner into taking care of a child who is not theirs. 3) denying their anger and the effects of it on society. 4) judging the worth of a man as a partner or individual by how mucn money he makes.These are just some ways so… Continue

Is it because the media is portraying men the way feminist ideals say they should be--being more respectful and consensus-building than cave-man like? What is going on here since studies show that most men are aroused by being dominant
not submissive. We know that both male and female brains come installed with both the "male" and "female" subcortical circuits--and then the sex-specific hormones at puberty --AND the culture/society/current customs activate one or the other. Could it be… Continue

Hello everyone. I trust and truly hope all of you and yours are well. i have over the course of our many conversations tried to make aware that the use of men and women in sweeping perjoratives is exclusionary. This misuse assumes that the dominate euro-american perspective is the right if not only one of value. This is hampered by our limited understanding of men of color and their contributions to their families and communities which has been grossly… Continue

In a great many low-tech societies (the kind that are sometimes assumed to be more like the way every culture was a long time ago) women are perceived as sources of potential pollution to adult males-and in some way the culture proscribes certain behaviors and sets up certain rituals to deal with the pollution. Women are perceived to carry a threat in some way. In the Bible and in early Greek religions-it was a female that brought evil into the world. My question is 1)if in fact women… Continue

With the new study in Harvard Women's Health Watch, what are you recommending for hormone thereapy. I have no female history of heart disease or cancer (Dad had both). Both mother and mother's mother had Alzheimer's and osteoporotic disease. I've been on elestrin estradiol gel .06% and vaginal cream for about 8 months (age 64.5). Loved it. At my physical OB/GYN wants to take me off all but cream. I'm having disturbed sleep, hot flashes, leg cramps, vaginal dryness, just reducing the… Continue

Hi Dr Louann,
Wondering where I should go in your books -- or if it's a yet-to-be-written chapter -- for information on this INTENSE compulsion that I keep seeing among women in my life (among female friends as well as among my SO's over these last 10 years) around the end of the 20s and into the 30s, with growing intensity, to 'get pregnant at all costs'? From one male perspective, let me just say it's been 'fairly alarming' to witness. When I've tried to ask questions like "ok,… Continue
