I should be more specific. Moms who think their sons are the center of the universe have been terrible for men. Guys raised by women who overly coddle and dote on their sons have unrealistic expectations for how they think they should be treated by every woman (and the world) thereafter. Many of them fail to understand the give and take that goes on in a real adult relationship, and instead expect unending adulation and adoration, rather than a real partnership--because that's exactly what they got from their mothers. Of course, all that love and support came from a good place, but it also cultivated a culture of hyper-entitled and spoiled masculinity. Seriously, Mom, your son does not s**t rainbows and you should really teach him to launder his own skidmark-stained undies.
