    about this experiment conducted by psychologists back in the 1960's.  Boy and girl toddlers were presented with an obstacle to surmount, such as a locked safety gate.  After unsuccessful attempts, the girl toddlers would tend to break down and cry while the boy toddlers would keep on trying to open the gate. Don't jump on me ... it may well be that with the strides women have made since the '60s, female toddlers may be as unlikely to give up as their male counterparts.  It's just that the Dem and Repub reactions to bad polls reminded me of this.
