A female resident adviser, while talking about how to calm a female down after a painful breakup with her boyfriend, mentioned using distraction techniques, citing that “girls get overly invested in talking about boys.” She said that the girl would not feel better about herself if she let her vent about her boyfriend-troubles, so she would want to steer the conversation elsewhere.
Yes, God forbid anyone have feelings for anyone else, and God forbid she discuss those feelings without being chastised for being “overly invested” in boys.
Women really can’t do anything right. You’re either frigid or you’re silly and emotional. No in between.
