It’s odd to think that our world is really separated into 2 separate worlds: one of men and another of women. And I’m not talking about the obvious differences, but rather of how each of sees and moves through the world differently.

I think the one thing men are envious of women for is that women always have each other and there is a strength in the company of women. Us men are loners and it can work at us.
