    Talking URGENT Question? Help Needed!

    I have a debate tommorow, I need to argue that

    Aggression is triggered by the enviroment and not by hormones.
    How can I argue that against PMS being hormonal?

    Any idea's.

    Easy. What if you're twice as aggressive due to hormones but everyone around you is three times as nice so they don't p*ss you off? Net effect - you're less aggressive.

    Aggression is empirical - it's how aggressive you are that defines it. Not how aggressive you feel.

    How can I argue that pms can be more intense than other episodes due to enviromental causes then. As there can be episodes where it is a minor problem and then there can be others that are like a riot

    pms is hormonal BUT not everyone is effected , you can probably tie that to the environment. Also people more stressed in egeneral are maybe more effected by an hormonal change than someone who isn't...

    not a great debator - but good luck sounds like you might need it

    Well this is the only part that will be hard to challenge, but I think I can lower their position if I get rid of this factor. If you know what I mean, shame I dont have a choice as to what position I had to support

    Thanks for this btw

    can't you do the 'guys don't have pms [or do they ] and they can still be agressive?'? therefore pms isn't the only thing effected it?

    damn hard one I agree

    just trying to think, I'm never effected but then I am usually very sensible and matter of fact about life in general, whereas I know people that get stressed at the drop of a hat and they are totally wacko with pms

    can't you throw in life style is a factor, combined with diet, excercise outlook on life, social stance, single/married status blah blah blah too?

    Hormones don't define who you are.

    PMS is like traffic.

    For some people it's like rush-hour, for other's it's like 3am. You can be "hit" by aggression in either situation, but if you never step onto the road becuase your environment doesn't push you to, it doesn't really matter.

    Sarcasm is a great way to argue this , puts them on the spot as well.
