San Francisco women’s attempts to suppress mood swings and to be “on” all the time by popping anti-depressants is yet another ugly attempt to become more like men and to prove to the world that they have as long a penis as any guy does.
A woman who doesn’t get angry or upset or who doesn’t cry when she should, and who prides herself on being able to handle anything seems like she is actually missing something. She is missing that female pulse which is at the core of her femininity.
Mood swings and emotional ups and downs are what makes women both intolerable and addicting, unpredictable and mysterious, and above all – that’s what makes them… women. Trying to change that is yet another step toward adding more masculine energy to already not-so-feminine women in SF, and this trend is quite sad.
