I'm not sure why I ended up the way I am. I wouldn't say that I'm so different compared to other women, since I certainly have more in common with the average woman than the average man. I guess you might say that I have little in common with other people in general :P
This seems a bit extreme. Do I want to wear a 'mask' to the outside world so they do not single me out as not being 'one of them' ? Yes. If anything, I get singled out as being the most noticeable. Which is fine, as long as that also comes with their thinking that I am normal as well.
I saw continuum on netflix and was thinking of watching it. Seems up my alley. I love Asimov, so pretty much everything I love. He's written so many books and short stories, both fiction and non-fiction, you can pretty much take your pick. I read his magazine when I was a teen, but those aren't necessarily his stories, but other sci-fi stories. The first book I read of his was "Chronology of the World" and I loved it. Funny but interesting. A couple others are the Foundation Trilogy, Nemesis, and also the short story collection I, Robot, which is much better than the movie (although I like the movie, too). The movie pretty much borrowed a general idea and his three rules and then screwed it all up, but that's Hollywood pleasing the general public for you.
Funny you mention salinger. My brother was just talking about him yesterday, about how he wants to be a writer and the author he feels is most like how he writes would be him. I was never a big fan of Catcher in the Rye, so I'm not very familiar with him, but the way my brother interprets him was pretty interesting. My author heroes are more like Isaac Asimov and Stephen King. My writing style is kind of a mix of the two.
Yea I don't really get the rules, there seem to be a lot of really petty people on here. I didn't see that at first, but there are some toxic people on here that really ruin possibly interesting topics. I think there are a couple people that just troll the posts looking for ways to report people. I always hope people will be better than they are, but it's not a huge surprise when they fail me. People can say incredibly demeaning, insulting things, and somehow that's acceptable, when other things said are just taken the wrong way get edited or removed. And lol at anal sex comment, no idea what that was in reference to but I bet someone was overly sensitive bout it being an affront to lgbt and that's why you got in trouble for that. Yet other people post about how being gay is just wrong, under a thin guise of pretending to want to understand homosexuality while at the same time saying it's completely unacceptable. Idk, I thought it wouldn't be as annoying posting on here as it is talking to people irl, but I was wrong.
Technically, women being more social than men isn't a bad thing in the bigger picture. It can be bad for individuals, though. It's part of the reason why women suffer from depression and anxiety more than men do. However, it's also a good reason why families stick together the way they do.
