  •  Makes sense. Women have very strong emotional (0+ / 0-)

    Relationships and some are sexual.  Men do have a need for bonding and frequently the experience of war provides this, also to some degree sports, but it seems to require an extreme experience.   Women get together just to be together all the time, while men need an activity as a cover. But maybe that is just our culture.  I kind of doubt it though because one reads about women having circles of activity going back to hunter gatherers.  

    Don't bet your future on 97% of climate scientists being wrong. Take action on climate now!

    •  If you look at photographs of social gatherings (0+ / 0-)

      And of work place gatherings from the late 1800's and early 1900's, it is not uncommon to see young men with their arms straddled over one another, the way that young kids will do if let to their own devices.

      It is a common situation in societies that don't stress competition. In South America and Latin America, male friends do this. Our society  puts the kabash on this. In fact, several years ago, two young men from Central America were brutally killed on the East Coast, because their habit of walking around with there arms entertwined suggested their 'homosexuality" when in fact it was simply a cultural norm. (Not that it would have been "okay" for them to be killed  if they had indeed been gay.)

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
