They grow up with what I term the "princess syndrome."
From an early age they undergo conditioning from the media, misguided parents and a horrible indoctrination system in the disguise of education. Even the toys, Barbie for example; leads woman to believe they will grow up and lead a glamorous perfect life.
When they hit a certain age, cold reality kicks in and they start to realize the idiotic preconceived notions they had about what and who they are supposed to be can never be attained.
This is certainly a recipe for disaster, compound the fact that TV is full of ads saying if you have this that or the other (most everyone has this that or the other at one point in time) "Ask your doctor if (insert drug here) is right for you.
It's a big pharma racket and doctors are their pimps. I had a frank conversation with a nurse at my doctors office in Florida, she said big pharma reps brought in $100 a plate lunches every day of the week while the reps extolled the virtues and potential profit of whatever drug they were supposed to be pushing at the time.
The more happy pills the Dr prescribed, the more kickback they got from big pharma. The US is on a dangerous fast track to zombify the entire nation. With all the economic problems, unemployment, war without end and no hope for the future it's no wonder people are turning to drugs to take the edge off reality.
Even those who are oblivious to the problems facing everyone, still have an inherent feeling that something is very wrong. The tendency is to internalize it and seek help from a physician, rather than acknowledge the real fact the world is in a state of chaos because people don't get involved in politics and, as a result, end up being governed by their inferiors.
Certainly there is a portion of society that are indeed mentally ill, and could POSSIBLY benefit from medicine and/or therapy in one form or another, but statistically it should not be as high as nearly 25% of all women.
Something is very wrong.
