I'd like to offer my particular man-pig lens on the whole "man contrasted with woman" thing. In general, of course. With exceptions noted.
In America, the desired end-state of the average woman is some version of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Whereas the desired state of the average man is some version of John Wayne's or Jeff Bridges' Rooster Cogburn in True Grit.
Now, I'm not saying that necessarily implies any complications in relations between the sexes, but...
I am saying it's kinda true. Chew on that and spit out what you will.
