  •  Bully/Slut Parallel (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    For years I've been researching on-and-off the makings of a book I've outlined titled The Bully/Slut Parallel. My premise is that masculine bullying is the gender-role equivalent of feminine sluttiness. Each is an aggression disorder rooted in gender-role inadequacy, anxiety, overcompensation. Further, more moderate roles like soldier and prostitute are equivalent.

    I will see if oxytocin plays equivalent roles in the two behaviors.

    I will also consider how RWA plays out in either side of the gender role boundary.

    On "I thought you said...", that's a brilliant formulation. It's like the reverse of "throwing the drowning guy an anchor". I'm going to practice some variations on the phrasing, to try on some of these RWAs.

    Later I'll claim I taught you how to do it ;).
