Does having severe sensitivity to actual contact or an above commonplace want for solitude swap one's expectation of relationships or sexual adventure?

Sample text

Rage and its harbingers are not peculiar to men, to be sure, but there is a quality, a character, to male rage that is directly related to the ominous import of castration as a peculiarly male terror. I believe that one can look at the behavior of males, and what masculine behavior symbolizes, from a specifically masculine point of view. I will use the phrase "masculine psychology" in these pages. Within the context of species, males and females are both human beings and share common characteristics of that species.

Withal, patriarchal design conspires to hide the rage, placing blame on women who supposedly provoke it. The major purpose is to defend against the implications of femininity in and for a man. Not surprisingly, expressions of rage do the opposite. Femininity is a terror for men, since females have no apparent phallos. The implication of subjective femininity suggests castration. For men, the specter of being feminine is based on the perception that femininity emerges when the annihilation of masculinity takes place by means of castration.

The father, at this point, would seem to be secondary in importance to the mother, essentially aiding and supporting a process that finds its center in her. His relationship to the mother, however, is critical in that his support influences her sense of femininity, her mothering, her satisfaction at having produced a male child who is so different from herself. If the father's relationship with the mother is antithetical, producing a negative attitude in the mother toward him, something of this negativity will be communicated to the son.
