Nervous Nellies by Taylor Clark
Girls don't start out more anxious than boys, but they usually end up that way.
He recycles the oldest, tiredest arguments on this subject possible: child rearing and social expectations. And then claims "cutting edge research" corroborates his conclusions. It's all correlative studies and he blatantly dismisses all kinds of direct studies which prove anxiety is governed by physiological processes and affected by sex hormones.
It's just flat out crap.
And then he goes on and gets all pretentious at the end:
"So take heart, women of the world: You're not necessarily bioengineered to be worry machines."
Screw Yourself Buddy. It's attitudes like yours that leave us in this frakking nightmare. You clearly do not understand the first thing about high anxiety women.
Yeah.... such as.... you really shouldn't piss us off...
