A local Liberal candidate in the June 12th provincial election is apologizing after facing criticism from the Tories over a Facebook post.
P.C. critics say Nepean-Carleton candidate Jack Uppal shared a post on Facebook on January 30th that claimed to show the differences between men's and women's brains.
Uppal's Facebook page is currently set to private, and can only be viewed by friends, but in an e-mail, P.C. candidate Laurie Scott provided screenshots, which show the posting as follows:
Human Brain Analysis - Man vs. Woman......!
- MULTI-TASKING Women - Multiple process Womens brains designed to concentrate multiple task at a time. Women can Watch a TV and Talk
over phone and cook. Men - Single Process Mens brains designed to
concentrate only one work at a time. Men can not watch TV and talk
over the phone at the same time. they stop the TV while Talking. They
can either watch TV or talk over the phone or cook.
- LANGUAGE Women can easily learn many languages. But can not find solutions to problems. Men can not easily learn languages, they can
easily solve problems. That's why in average a 3 years old girl has
three times higher vocabulary than a 3 yeard old boy.
- ANALYTICAL SKILLS Mens brains has a lot of space for handling the analytical process. They can analyze and find the solution for a
process and design a map of a building easily. But If a complex map is
viewed by women, they can not understand it. Women can not understand
the details of a map easily, For them it is just a dump of lines on a
- CAR DRIVING. While driving a car, mans analytical spaces are used in his brain. He can drive a car fastly. If he sees an object at long
distance, immediately his brain classifies the object (bus or van or
car) direction and speed of the object and he drives accordingly.
Where woman take a long time to recognize the object direction/ speed.
Mans single process mind stops the audio in the car (if any), then
concentrates only on driving.
- LYING When men lie to women face to face, they get caught easily. Womans super natural brain observes facial expression 70%, body
language 20% and words coming from the mouth 10%. Mens brain does not
have this. Women easily lie to men face to face. So guys, do not lie
face to face.
- PROBLEMS SOLVING If a man have a lot of problems, his brain clearly classifies the problems and puts them in individual rooms in the brain
and then finds the solution one by one. You can see many guys looking
at the sky for a long time. If a woman has a lot of problems, her
brain can not classify the problems. she wants some one to hear that.
After telling everything to a person she goes happily to bed. She does
not worry about the problems being solved or not.
- WHAT THEY WANT Men want status, success, solutions, big process, etc... But Women want relationship, friends, family, etc...
- UNHAPPINESS If women are unhappy with their relations, they can not concentrate on their work. If men are unhappy with their work, they
can not concentrate on the relations.
- SPEECH Women use indirect language in speech. But Men use direct language.
- HANDLING EMOTION Women talk a lot without thinking. Men act a lot without thinking.*
Uppal's Tory opponent in the riding, Lisa MacLeod, said on Twitter his comments are disgraceful and have no place in Ontario politics.
In an e-mailed statement, Uppal says he apologizes 'unreservedly.' He says he never intended the post to be taken literally, or to offend anyone, but acknowledges the posting was "without question offensive to both men and women. "
