I could be simply that I am male, but making this a women's issue seems kind of artificial. There is a much larger issue about conformity and bad parenting here, and it is kind of myopic to look at it as a women's issue.
I have known parents that forced their male children into molds...different molds, but the oppressive/repressive effects are the same.
Forcing children to be something they are not, whether through societal expectations or bad parenting, is a bad thing regardless of the child's gender.
