how are you sad?

kitty, who i guess would know, told me yesterday a list of typical differences between the male and female experience of depression. i come out with 3 male, 3 female, and 1 neutral. i'm curious how other people match up, so here is a poll for you. i'll tabulate this (by gender, and anything else that strikes me as interesting) for your various edutainments, but i won't say who said what, in case anyone cares.
i've starred the ones that are me.
