If it's your birthday then it's rational to be happy

If someone in your family dies then it's rational to be sad.

Rationality doesn't nullify our humanity, that being said, our humanity can supress rationality.

Come at me bro!

Well birthdays are typically commemorated to mark an 'anniversary' of your birth, it's pretty special, so I wouldn't say it's like any other day.

There's plenty of other examples of when it's rational to express human feelings.

So it's just a social construct, therefore not rational.

I don't think being rational and emotion are synonymous

Social construct is a fun argument to use to totally tear down society.

Law and order is a social construct.
Language is a social construct.
Need for education? Social construct
Morality? Mostly a social construct
Capitalism? Social construct
Communism? Social construct
Democracy? Nah fam social construct.

hehehe

you cannot act rationally until you have found a "meaning of life" which you gear your actions towards.

If you're a man the only emotions you need are greed and hatred.
