To clarify a little, I often see what I feel is overcompensation by women who appear to feel they need to "prove" that they can be everything that a man can be, and more. I see example after example of this, mostly in the media, but a lot on this site, too. And while it's a great thing that women are more and more able to enjoy the rights they have been unfairly deprived of throughout basically all of human history, all too often any comparison with men in which women are viewed as not measuring up to some standard is misinterpreted as disenfranchisement. I know that my wife is a FAR better nurturer and has miles more patience than I do when one of our sons is whining or crying. By the same token, there are times when the boys NEED to be disciplined, or when one of us needs to take an aggressive leadership role in our business that requires giving orders or reprimanding an employee. She absolutely despises being put in the position to do any of these. And I'm just no good when the kids are acting up out of tiredness or frustration.
In general, there are things that women are better at, and things that men are better at, and families and societies whose members basically adhere to these roles are typically happier and more satisfied with their lives. Hell, just the fact that these arguments tend to be so evenly divided down gender lines should be a good indicator that there is something to the idea. I had a really good discussion about this with TBG back when SAMA and he were still around. I think you participated in it. The one about femininity and masculinity.
