Important marital advice from Obama’s HHS: Calm down, ladies

posted at 5:21 pm on November 19, 2013 by Allahpundit

This is either a palate cleanser from the least likely source imaginable or the makings of a half-hearted manufactured outrage du jour at Obama’s and Sebelius’s expense. Either way, news you can use. Gentlemen, for future reference: The next time your wife or girlfriend is angry at you, remind her that Obama’s health department thinks she should stop being so emotional and just settle down, for God’s sake. As the president himself might (but hasn’t) put it, “Hysteria is a choice.”

And for the ladies, a lesson: It’s all your fault.

This isn’t about who wins the argument – but a study of hot marital fights indicates that when the wife calms down, the couples are more happy. Researcher Lian Bloch of the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology in Palo Alto found that in a study she did at the University of California, Berkeley. She looked at data that included recorded arguments by long-time husbands and wives.

“The marriages that were the happiest were the ones in which the wives were able to calm down quickly during marital conflict.”

Bloch says calm wives were able to look constructively for ways to deal with the emotions and talk about ways to solve the problems. Happiness didn’t change if the husband calmed down quickly.

The study in the journal Emotion was supported by the National Institutes of Health.

I’m not sure how to read that. Are they suggesting that husbands are indifferent about a squabble dragging on endlessly unless their wives reduce the tension by calming down? Or is it the opposite, that husbands typically want the fight over quickly and have to be baited into a protracted argument by wives who can’t, or won’t, calm down? Who’s to blame here? Damn it, how do I decide which way to adjust my gender stereotypes if no one will tell me who’s to blame?

Oh, by the way, today is International Men’s Day. Yes, really.

Married women aren’t the problem.

It’s the stupid, parasitic single sluts who keep electing Democrats all over the place.

Remember that when we passed the ill-advised Amendment XIX giving women the franchise, the voting age was 21 and most women were married by then. No one imagined we’d be having all these loose single women running around voting.

It’s a nightmare.

Ya know, I’m getting kind of tired of waging this conservative war on women – and the left is starting to make sense, so maybe this is the way to go…..

oldroy on November 19, 2013 at 5:54 PM

My experience pretty much follows this, as does my wife’s experience. If you do not calm down, then you cannot negotiate an end to the hostilities, and if you just unilaterally end the argument with no solution, then you refight the arguments over and over again.

“The marriages that were the happiest were the ones in which the wives were able to calm down quickly during marital conflict.”

In other words, the were wrong, and knew it…

Everyone knows that, the woman is usually the wrong one in the argument and is emotional, when she calms down and realizes she is the one making the error, the mistake; that is when issue is resolved.

It helps when they calm down, and go cook dinner…after making a little cocktail to ease the tension.

right2bright on November 19, 2013 at 5:56 PM

There are other studies that have shown similar results.

In one study, they looked at how spouses responded in arguments. Responses were tagged as positive, neutral and negative.

They found that the happiest marriages were marriages where wives responded to negative feedback from husbands with neutral responses (i.e. not escalating things) or positive responses.

They did not see the same correlation with the husband’s responses.

Sebelius also had important advice for kids being bullied: “just walk away.” Right, be the bigger person. Walk away instead of attempt to or learn how to defend oneself. It’s like she’s trying to apply her international pacifism to childhood. Doesn’t work. Here’s an except from a hotair post on that:

As part of her answer, Sebelius said: “I think, very important, is for kids to understand how powerful you really are. You might feel like you’re not big enough, not strong enough, not–don’t have enough tools. But just saying [to the bully], ‘Stop it! You know, you’re being a jerk!’–walk away, get away from this person can make a huge amount of difference.”

LOL. Uh, ya.

I’m reminded of the story about the newly married couple on their wedding night. Hubby takes off his pants and tells the wife to try them on. She does and says “these don’t fit – I can’t wear these”. So he says “that’s right, I wear the pants in this house and don’t you forget it.” So she takes off her panties and throws them at him and says “try those on”. He tries but they’re too small and he says “I can’t get into these.” And she says “that’s right, and you never will if you don’t change your attitude.”

Wwhen he took off his pants, his knees were all knotted and scarred,she reared back and said “what happened?”, and he stated that he had kneasles as a kid, measles that attacked his knees…

When he finally got to business, took off his shorts, she gasped, slapped her forehead and said……..”Oh no, you had small cox too?”…

“more happy”?? Evidently, it’s unreasonable to assume that government workers – especially those whose tasks include writing – to be literate and at least familiar with English. This must be another Hah-vahd/Columbia/Princeton affirmative action slug. Or just a fuzzy foreigner who was hired to be a foreign object mucking up the workings of, what used to be, America.

I managed to finish elementary school without any major broken bones, which was a rarity for a “designated punching bag” in the elementary schools in our town.

I cannot pretend to be anything like an expert on this subject. My wife of what will be 30 years in a few weeks doesn’t get riled up in a way which needs to be calmed down, and neither do I.

However, for a large segment of American society, it’s not unfair to say that in conflicts, the woman holds the cards. (Really, just one card, but it’s always the Ace of Trumps) In that way, she tends to control the flow of most disagreements. The “fight” ends when she’s calm, no matter what the guy thinks. What it takes to get there is as different as any individuals can be, so there’s really no formula for that.

Given the above, any “study” which arrives at this conclusion hasn’t accomplished anything useful. I’m sure it cost plenty of taxpayer dollars for them to conduct this massive theft of oxygen.

Freelancer on November 19, 2013 at 9:11 PM

I’m not sure how to read that. Are they suggesting that husbands are indifferent about a squabble dragging on endlessly unless their wives reduce the tension by calming down? Or is it the opposite, that husbands typically want the fight over quickly and have to be baited into a protracted argument by wives who can’t, or won’t, calm down? Who’s to blame here? Damn it, how do I decide which way to adjust my gender stereotypes if no one will tell me who’s to blame?

Have you ever actually spoken to a woman?

Eh, it’s why I don’t think wives should employ sex starvation. It’s not fair. Sex is like food for men, and the starvation is real. Weird, but true.

So would it be a bad idea to tell the wife “go fetch me a beer woman”?

You’re a rookie, right?

You should have, long ago, trained pup pup to make the beer run.

Or do what my buddy did: He has a tap on the wall next to his easy chair. The keg is in the mancave-saferoom portion of the garage, on the other side of the wall – chilled.

(I think he even has a Ferguson 2-ga flush toilet out there. Major wooosh.)

But, just like when the wife refuses to cook, there’s plenty of other places I can get something to eat. And not all of them are commercial kitchens.

Was her next piece of advice that they should bend over? And they accuse the Rs of committing a war on women.
