Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
The tendency toward self-indulgence and rationalization (or sin in general, for that matter) isn't a feminine" trait - it's a human trait. Most of the REALLY crappy people I've ever known have been men. That stands to reason: the overwhelming majority of extreme outliers in almost everything* are men... why would that not be true for this, too?
Those guys tend to have women who follow along with them, and they're bad, too, but their badness is more "derivative" in a sense: women tend to conform to the environment created by the men in their lives just as water takes the shape of the container it's in. That's not to excuse them, by the way: women have moral agency just like we do, but women don't lead men... they use weak men and follow strong ones, but ultimately they choose whom to follow: tendency isn't destiny.
Good women seek out good men to follow. Unfortunately, our society no longer attaches penalties for seeking out bad boys, which many young women mistake for strength. That's why every society that ever succeeded put fathers in charge: young women typically can't tell the difference between masculinity and machismo. (That's why when women try to act "tough" they mimic the comical antics of gang-bangers and players rather than the controlled power of good men.)Read More
@coolsocks00 Anger phase is natural. Mine lasted years. We always had some people in anger phase, some dip in and out a few times (including me) so you can't blame various posts for people staying in anger phase for extended periods of time. That is on them.
@AFTSOV nah dude
They usually aren't that methodical.
They're just emotional and whimsical and act in the moment without any real thought for the future.
Why do you think their most common excuse is "iT jUsT hApPeNeD"?
Most of them reality believe and act as though life is just a series of things that happen to then, and don't take any responsibility for their decisions.
