Sex and the City has created and shaped the 21st century woman but it also emasculated men in the process says one relationship expert & therapist .
“In just over 12 years, Sex and the City has encouraged women to be freer, to be more independent, to embrace their sexuality, and to embrace their new sense of identity; and as the new woman emerges, men are left behind feeling lost about their own identity and what women really want or expect” says Human Behavior & Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD. “Sex and the City has taught women that they no longer need to follow the traditional path – they can find value and self-worth in something greater than just being a housewife: ‘I’m here and I have greater purpose than just serving a man. I can be a career woman. I can be a housewife. I can be a sexual woman. I can be a mother. I can be a girlfriend. I can be many things.’ But Sex and the City has also created the female hyper confident sexual hunter in Kim Cattrall’s character, Samantha Jones, the cougar who uses men as objects and whom also intimidates men that are used to being the hunter.”
Wanis points out that “In SATC 2, we still see the characters unsatisfied with their current lives in spite of marriage, motherhood or a successful career and this only confuses men who are already wrestling with their own sense of self-worth with the new 21st century woman who is independent and successful in her own right and who can look after herself financially. These women are very independent. They’re very powerful. They have their own money. They establish their own identity in ways other than simply being a housewife, being a sexual object or being subservient to a man.”
According to Wanis SATC 2 also reinforces the belief by men that women are never satisfied with what they have or who they are, and are obsessed with shopping, clothes, materialism and exhibitionism, and; they simply expect too much from men. “Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie is quickly bored by her marriage to Chris Noth and complains that she wants to go out and party in NYC while Kristin Davis’ character Charlotte seems so unsatisfied by raising children. The message to men, for those that might see the film, is women are selfish, never really happy and have too high expectations, particularly in the 21st century.”
