Men tend to like to use language in a way that is considered “factual” but it’s just as fictional as anybody else’s account of reality.

I think women’s account of the facts is more trusted when it gets into layers of details involving multiple contexts of a person’s life story and involving interpreting emotional intent.  Men are more believed when it’s a simple chain of reasoning that stays within a single ‘school of thought'; in short, a very limited context.

Example: A women is more typically believed when one hears, “Can’t you see you hurt his feelings? Don’t you know what he’s BEEN through lately?”  That will be believed as it’s assumed that women have more of a hold on all things empathy and that men have more of a hold of all things rational – both are ridiculous notions, part of our cultural upbringing and less to do with any kind of innate differences, imho.
