The jist of this story is that the writer goes undercover as a guy to ‘see what life is like on the other side of the gender divide’.
Several thoughts on this…
First if the experiment was done by a guy, I bet good money that he would be perceived as another pervert trying to exploit women.
Also he would have had to be gay since I don’t think any female would buy for 18 months a straight guy faking his gender. Norah, the lady in this experiment is a lesbian.
Second why did she expect guys to be ‘egotistic, rude, unwelcoming’ etc? Is this how women view men?
She says…“Men are suffering. They have different problems than women have, but they don’t have it better,” she said. “They need our sympathy. They need our love, and maybe they need each other more than anything else.”
I ask which men are suffering? True we do need women’s love, sympathy from women wouldn’t kill us either especially if it yielded a good amount of S.E.X.
But men needing each other more than anything else?
Let me speak for all straight men; we are very OK with the closeness or lack thereof as it is. Any more closeness will earn a straight man a non reversible gay conduct membership.
Another interesting note from this storo, as Norah was trying to date as a guy, there were straight women who wanted to continue dating – sexually- even after He had revealed to them he was a She.
I say interesting because this the exact kind of kindness we need from women. If they are at all interested in ending our ‘suffering’ below are two suggestions.
Men will take your sympathy in equal sexual value; solving emotions by talking is really not necessary.
Now if that sympathy could be rendered by two women at the same time; we swear there will be no men ‘suffering’, EVER.
