[WS:] I did not say women cannot be immature, but they are immature in
a different way than men. In men, immaturity tends to take the form of
emotional shallowness, banality and unidimensionality, which they try
to cover up with escapes into behavior that is both perfunctory and
bizarre or appalling. In women, on the other hand, immaturity takes
the form of self-depreciation, denial of their own value, and failure
to question the validity of the influences and demands put on them by
others. When men mature, they become more critical of themselves, when
women do - they become less.
CB: I'm more like a woman. I was too hard on myself in my youth. My
maturation has been to take it easy on myself.
