If everyone/ lot's of people, says that men are emotional challenged or whatever other thing that means the same, but that WOMAN, always get hurt, then WHY , is it NOT preferable to be emotionally challenged?
I am not saying this is a good solution, but the picture most often, painted of a guy & a girl in an emotional situation always ha the girl getting hurt, so why wold anyone not want to be emotionally stunted if it's the 'emotionally mature ' people who feel ALL the pain. YOu could say that DEEP DOWN guys hurt, but if they do not feel it the so what?
There is not a sad picture painted for the GUY even tho he is supposed to have a PROBLEM WITH INTIMACY or the like. The argument & the representation are not the same.
If I could choose between having lots of friends & not getting crushed by love , as apposed to feeling huge passion for some one that was going to be a big baby al the time, I'd rather have the emotional shallowness that allows for objectivity focus & not being overly sensitive.
Perhaps I should not say guys & girls but the 'stereotype' of guys & girls..
Really , who really WANTS to feel like someone else has such power over their emotions & such little power to be available?
