This is a very touchy subject. In the past I have brought it up around different people and most times it was not a good idea. If there are women present they will say how women have it harder and then we will debate and argue back and forth and the women usually ends up very angry with me. Even if I bring it up with all men half the time they think I am full of crap. Maybe I am.
Everyone is different. I am not saying that women have life easier in general than men because there is no way of knowing.
There are things that I see where women get short changed and women can talk about
them. If I see a talk show or a friend of mines wife or a relative these women can talk about
how they have it hard in society being women. It seems like if I say anything about
how men are short changed these women have to tell me I am wrong and make me feel guilty for even bringing it up. Could you imagine a talk show where men are talking about
what is wrong with women?
Taking crying for example. A woman can cry in almost any setting. Even a man with depression crying he is looked down on. I won't even cry around my parents if I can help it.
I am jealous of women and it is something I am gonna have to work through that is all. It does really bother me sometimes. I don't mean to lash out at anyone but it does make me angry. It is part of my depression. Maybe it is something that is not even real and I just created it so I could blame society for my depression in some way, I don't know. I do want to talk about
it here because it seems I can not talk about
it anywhere else. Even when I went to therapists the female one seemed to get very angry with me when I brought it up so then I asked for a male one and he did not even want to touch the subject he would change the subject or just get angry with me.
