The "Mommy Issue" myth
Women would love to think they're just as important as Men and they project this desire by trying to be masculine. Another way to project their penis envy is the ridiculous notion of having "mommy issues." We all know that Men and women with Daddy issues struggle in many parts of life. Growing up with a weak or absentee father severely damages individuals on many levels.
But not having a mother, though not good, isn't nearly as detrimental. Girls would love to think they're so damn important that without a feminine presence in their lives, people go to piece. The only problem with their theory is that it's simply not true.
