| Damaging to the image of women
Men have been posting about this little free video, trying to explain it in terms of gender. "Ain't that just like a woman," they say. "They're not like us. They don't want to solve their problems, they just want to complain about them. Don't try to understand it; just play along."

Never mind that the role of the victim could've just as easily been played by a man. (I wish it had been.)

Well, I'm a woman. Not a "manly" woman or anything like that. And I can see from the comments that men out there are all too eager to paint all women with the same brush, and that harms me.

If I had met the woman in this video, I think I'd have said, "You need to stop focusing on how the problem makes you feel and turn your attention to solving it. And if you don't want to do that, then I have nothing to offer you, so go away and find someone else's shoulder to cry on."

Actually, I doubt I'd be friends with a woman like that in the first place.

There are plenty of women out there who don't love buying shoes, who don't talk endlessly on the phone, and who try to solve or cope with their problems instead of demanding constant sympathy for them. Don't judge us all by the irrational idiot in this video, please.
