Your textbook cites some information from an author named Deborah Tannen. She asserts that female-male communication is actually cross-cultural communication; because men and women can actually be considered part of entirely different cultural groups (Tannen, 1990). Therefore, male-female communication can be very difficult.

Tannen further states:

For males, conversation is the way you negotiate your status in the group and keep people from pushing you around; you use talk to preserve your independence. Females, on the other hand, use conversation to negotiate closeness and intimacy; talk is the essence of intimacy, so being best friends means sitting and talking. For boys, activities, doing things together, are central. Just sitting and talking is not an essential part of friendship. They're friends with the boys they do things with.

Values, Attitudes, and Behaviors

How do these gender-based cultural differences play out in communication within your family? Give us an example or two of times when communication was hindered by different gender-based cultures within your family.  Are there other cultural differences within your family that have had an impact on members' ability to communicate with each other?
