Mrs Rabbit may not have done her husband the favour she thinks!
Most psychology books I’ve read suggest many men living with and outnumbered by ‘strong women’ can tend to be hen-pecked, or have their masculinity suppressed at home. So they lash out at their work colleagues: venting their pent up anger, aggression and frustration with fury they can’t release at home.
It also often explains why they go in for excessive sporting events – marathons, triathlons etc – to prove their masculinity to themselves and/or their overwhelming family.
It might also account for why they need one (or more) of their strong womenfolk to speak out on their behalf, about how ‘good’ they are! For ‘good’, the books tell us, we can read ‘submissive at home’.
