Simone de Beauvior's article "The Second Sex" really changed my outlook on life. The idea that a women's identity is determined and defined by men is sooooo crazy yet true. I never thought about it in the context of a man constructing what it means to be a woman! What would happen if men had said women were equal???
McGuire is what society believes the typical man to be: afraid of commitment, afraid to be alone, therefore a womanizer.
