From Science Daily: Why Do People Make 'A Mountain Out of a Molehill?' Aggression, Status and Sex
I understand the whole "acting like a big man" thing from an evolutionary standpoint. Don't take shit from anyone, prove you're stronger, make others back down. But seriously, I can't stand guys like that. It's like, "Dude, you're an asshole." I mean, there is definitely being too passive, too, but I think that's true for women, too. I think part of this whole white-matter-high-reasoning thing is picking your battles. Jeez.
