This reminds me of the thread I was thinking of making, titled "Men as delicate flowers", inspired by my recent watching of Normal, 2003 (with Jessica Lange, who's a great actress by the way), and my own personal life observations involving men being raised and surrounded by excessive feminine presence. I believe that it's possible to contaminate a man's essence with the feminine, especially when it's still in development. I suspect that a male caretaker (father) can also influence its development with his own support, or excessive criticism. It is a delicate kind of balance of interplay of dependence and independence, or pulling an pushing that has to be maintained.

It's possible, but I think it would be hard without a male role model in the house, as all of the burden would be placed on the boy himself. My investigation is still ongoing, but so far, my theory is confirmed by my own observations. Maybe Wendy was right, we need to send men off to conquer space, or something.
