My women friends made me stronger, wiser, healthier, 

I read a lot, sharing with my friends 

 think many straight men spend too much time on being hard, straight, macho macho, to live the straight macho way.   It takes alot of energy.  This also causes women to have to be a false imitation of themselves to impress the men. I enjoy what these loves are saying.  I bet if straight men could soften a bit, the women would teach them alot

If men were able to maintain friendships with each other as these 2 have described as women, the world would be a whole lot better place to live in.?

This comment section has become its own unofficial study of how people can hear the same words and glean completely different meanings from it. My personal interpretation is that we, each and every one of us, are born with the capacity to share the same kind of relationships with each other as anyone else, regardless of gender, social class, etc. All that changes once outside forces begin to act on us, be those forces patriarchal, matriarchal, religious, economical, or fill in the blank. For us to deny that these outside forces exist is a bit ludicrous. If anything, all the comments I've read are proof that the force is strong with many commenters
 think many people are taking what was said out of context. It isn't news that societal pressures have shaped male and female friendships differently. Men are pressured to hide their vulnerabilities while women are expected to express them. Everyone who is calling Fonda sexist needs to take a step back and check themselves
That is so true, at the risk of using gender stereotypes I actually do think that women are more able to be vulnerable and disclose their deepest emotions and struggles, but only due to the irritating construction of 'masculinity' that society expects of men. I encourage every one of my male friends to do the same because it's so important that they speak about their feelings and struggles too, men need to feel they can speak about feelings too.?

Lighten up, people. Men and women have different kind friendships, studies have been done, yes, there are exceptions...but for those who are baby boomers, it has been a bit of a wild ride. These women are talking about female friendships, which has been proven to help us remain healthier and live longer. Be thankful to the women who paved the path before us, I had to protest to wear pants to public school. Think about that for a moment...and think about being told to sit down little lady, because a boy had something to say...lets honor the brave women who spoke out, giving the women of today the right to stand in equality, to be a chef, a doctor, or whatever they dream of becoming. As the Dali Lama has said....he believes Western Women will save the world, I do too. WE RISE.?
