Interesting that Corylus uses the term "emotional" to describe the discussion of this matter. One of the conference speakers Bernice Sandler pointed out that this is a term that is predominantly used to describe women "as if men are not emotional at football games".

I say this because I keep hearing the same call to be "non emotional" (with regards to issues of sexism, male privilege, etc and I do not recall seeing it say, when we discuss issues relating to religion or racism. To me at least, this comes off as dismissive.
