My Definition of the Hamster
Here’s my answer:
How do I define hamsters as it pertains to women?
I’d describe it as a form of rationalization – often based on emotion or feeling – that women use to justify their position on an issue or action in some regard “regardless of factual evidence to the contrary”.
This last bit is often the root of a lot of friction with men – who are generally more “hard facts” based and women who are “generally” more inclined towards the feelings and emotions they’re experiencing.
The clearest example of this is a woman dropping a “nuclear divorce” on an otherwise healthy and functional family because she was “unhaaapy”, bored, all her friends were doing it, etc.
Because she’s “unhappy” or what-have-you, she feels justified in changing her situation to make herself “happier” regardless of the pain, suffering, and financial cost it causes other people – and what really takes the cake – shows no indication of awareness or concern for what others are going through. (Although the lack of concern / awareness of others experience is more likely about solipsism than hamsterization.)
