I don't think that much of what you're offering in your most recent post earns a reply, so I'm just going to focus on the things that I believe did (shown above).
To your first questions, as we discussed elsewhere recently, I'm coming from the perspective that men and women would tend to be behaviorally similar if not socialized differently.
To answer your last query, yes, I agree with you that the more sensitive male is stigmatized as well and that that's wrong. In point of fact, it is the crux of what the interview linked in the OP was all about. Apparently, the new God of War presents Kratos as a more multi-dimensional character in that sort of way, and Chris Plante of Polygon wanted to know how the decision to go that route with the character came about.
"I'm coming from the perspective that men and women would tend to be behaviorally similar if not socialized differently."
i didn't question this previously but i'm now wondering, what is this idea based on?
the idea that everyone is a blank slate and they can all be molded into whatever is desired by some authority?
this isn't the case with other animals that show sexual dimorphism so why would you assume that its the case for humans?
how far would you be willing to take this idea? would you eventually prefer for instance that reproduction be done through artificial means so the act of reproduction no longer places such a burden of women?

ah and i suppose that influences men to become abrasive heartless bastards as a result
