Anyhoo, is this a matter of nature or nurture? With my own daughter I'm appalled at how everyone goes for cute stuff. Apparently now her hair is too long I can't just use a pair of clippers despite her not giving even half a damn about hair.
Is the female hangup about looks (I know, contentious but hardly unfounded) part of the female psyche or is it taught from an early age of being made to look pretty?
Of I was a stay at home dad things would be very different and I hope I can have the proper effect later to ensure my daughter grows up as much of a swine in an argument as my good self and wants things like trousers with usable pockets instead of plastering herself in the advertising logos of overpaid waifs.
I don't think that this is true. I've seen very competitive women but it tends to be focused in an individual. Perhaps that's why I see so many f males and t females struggle. They are contradicting the expected, men address the object and women address the person?And because of such a driven competitive nature, they tend to accumulate experience faster while females are still trying to complement their perhaps emotional somewhat fragile nature and so for them, it may take a bit longer to get their act or behavior together. But on the bright side, once they get it together, it can be amazing. Though if I was being rational, their emotional side isn’t totally eradicated because they may still retain some of it as they age.
Either way I think it's high time we lost these meaningless labels in arenas where they have no bearing. How to get there though.....well I haven't figured that out yet.
