Actually one of the first threads I made on this forum related to this issue. It was called "The great androgenous mix up."
I tend to think the stronger the personality you have, the more specialized you become, and opportunities lessen. This could be with men, women, work dynamics. My biggest problem is relating to people with confidence issues trying to knock you "down." Or people of authority attempting to keep you in your place.
I think I can be pretty intimidating, and that naturally leads to more contention than the average person. People place limits and restrictions on you a lot so they don't get overwhelmed. Or people try to change you into an extreme, show more of the girly side, show more of the business side. People take issues with the balance cause it just fucks with their senses or something.
I guess what it all comes down to though, is that I essentially view that as YOUR problem. So.
