If only all women could be a man for a day, they would understand how true this is. The closest female equivalent is probably her deeply primal instinct to nurture and protect her offspring. The desire to be a mother is so powerful, and most women understand the terrible emotional consequences when this instinct is frustrated and a woman is denied the chance to have children. Well, men suffer similarly when this deepest part of us is denied expression, usually due to having a partner who is still fighting the gender wars and jockying for control in the relationship. To have a woman who not only accepts this aspect of us but who welcomes and appreciates it is such a blessing and a relief.
