Interesting perspective! It’s true, men receive so many mixed messages from birth.
My least favorite has to be that Adam Sandler trope, which promises them that the unattractive and unintelligent man will always land the super hot woman just because he’s funny and persistent in his harassment. WOW did men take this trope seriously. The trope didn’t start with Sandler but he definitely exploded this market. He and his friends went with this same trope over and over again for decades. The repetition doesn’t help at all.
Your article just somehow led me to a random tangent about male comedy. Media has such an enormous affect on our ideas of love and relationships, you know what I mean?
Excellent read! Thanks for sharing!
