Roma Newton, Kingscliff

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’.

 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
