  1. “It seems to be a lot about validation….could it be that the traditional upbringing awards less ‘pats on the head’ to females than men…as a result of which, we grow up needing less of it than our male counterparts?”

    No, I don’t think it’s that at all.

    Think about a little boy’s relationship with his mother. How does he transition from this feminine view to the realm of the modern male? Unless handled delicately and lovingly by a father, this switch is just too traumatic.

    The “toughness” exhibited by most males is usually a byproduct of extreme vulnerability.

    A loving caring father is what I (and vast numbers of other males) never had. Unless one is lucky in the way of relationships, it takes a very long time to get a grip on that vulnerability you’re talking about.

    That’s my two cents.


    Oh, and I really like your blog by the way. :-ß

  2. I totally agree! I particularly liked the part where you go – What is this whole thing about performance anxiety? I truly have no sympathy…..most women face similiar or bigger challenges and it doesn’t make us all quake in our shoes….or even if it does, we don’t lean heavily on the opposite sex to maintain an illusion of security for us! Well said!

    Read your comments often on Sagnik’s but it’s good to have you drop by on my blog. Hope to see you around more. Cheers!

  3. The biological reason behind this is quite simple- the woman’s monthly cycle makes her horny 3 days out of 30, for men its 30 of 30. poor fellows- need to have that urge or itch taken care of. As for the rest, everything else is a fall out from there! as for being their nursemaid- that’s ur choice not theirs.
