Satan's Feelings an inherited rebellion?

Feelings! Women have feelings or think they have more than men and or think that they are more feeling than men or that they have more feelings than men. You see, feelings got Eve into trouble and get us into trouble. Where do feelings come from and why do women think they have more or actually do have more? Eve was tempted by the serpent (Genesis) and this stirred in her 'Satan's feelings' (the corrupt program was installed) which got stronger and she became tormented, they 'Satan's feelings' drove her to disobey God. Many people ask why Eve. Why was woman tempted and not man. The serpent (Satan) saw gentleness and beauty in Eve. We can imagine that her program in its form and beauty was by necessity a 'multi tasking program' (as the partner/helper/mate to Adam) and thus she had to be more lucid (transparent) and fluid (flowing) and symbiotic (adapting) in nature. We can imagine in this sense that Eve's design is what made her attractive to the serpent and easy to corrupt.
Does this mean that we 'women' have to become unfeeling in order to be saved or in God's grace? No. It means we have to be careful with our feelings and always let God lead us regardless of how we feel, in that we often think blinding about how we feel that it is the right way to feel.
Reflecting on Satan's feelings and their continued effect...
What were Satan's feelings - He thought he could do a better job than God, "I will sit on the mountain, I will be the most high" as we can read in Isiah. 
I think that today many women are confused about their role and relationship with God. They tend to feel that they can do better by pushing my way either by seduction, manipulation or self seeking glory/high position whether at work or at home .... have they continued to inherit the rebellion of Satan?
Is this kind of question Biblical? If we look to the old testament, we can find that such inheritance continued since the fall from Eden. For me, Sarai the wife of Abram and Rebecca the wife of Issac and Bathsheba, among others, stand out the most in the old testament. In the new testament, the one who stands out the most is the sister of Martha.

Women, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles... Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith...Hebrews 12
