    I've changed my mind on the subject.

    They're all backwards. That is all.

    Thinking on personal experience. I've met far more strong women and a whole lot more whimpy men that are scared of their own shadow.
    Makes me wonder if the gender roles are all backwards, hiding what people are actually like.

    Men might be capable of becoming physically stronger, but it's useless if they're too afraid to do anything about it.
    There are all the other factors too, which I never really see being correct either.

    Well the social genders are different in many places and families, thank god. And its not always black and white, there's a grey scale. But generally there are some patterns to be seen.

    Fedai - There might be something in that, people somehow need to put up a façade, to hide who they really are, if it doesn't agree with the norm.
