All social conventions aside, women are literally less rational than men because they are more swayed by hormones. Their entire evolution has been based around emotion, which is animalistic thinking relative to practicality, which requires higher brain functions.

"rightness" (as an aesthetic judgment) is an emotion.

Not to mention that you are contradicting your own thesis by crusading against emotion.

To emote is to move; or act. That's the "actionable certainty" you speak about. Emotion is what drives us to action.

But in the spirit of exploring your inner sexist, you should continue down that line of reasoning.
