This is everything I have ever tried to articulate and failed because a man was talking over me.
This entire article. I keep saying this, and it’s just so baffling to me how almost everyone always disagrees with me on this, because this idea that women are so much more emotional than men, and that men so much more rational than women is just so consistently being proven wrong to me every day of my life.
omg I’ve been waiting for years for somebody to write this.
I remember when I was taking a psychology class in high school, our teacher insisted that men had more emotional needs than women. To prove it, he showed us a video of a study with mothers and their infants.
In the study, women would play peekaboo with their babies, but then after a while give them a blank :I look
The baby girls were mostly unaffected, the boys however, started crying.
Hell I don’t need a study, I just have to look at my parents. My dad gets upset if my mom isn’t there to constantly freaking baby him, while my mom is expected to work and come home and make dinner and put up with him even though he’s retired and doesn’t do shit around the house now.
So why the shit do we get saddled with the emotional, clingy reputation??
shit is too fucking real. if i had a nickel for every time i had to wipe away dude tears and then had my own emotions completely minimized in return i’d have a nice car to fucking run over them with
