Women have learned to fit into male culture. The idea of the women who is "one of the guys" is accepted and celebrated and exploited by women in the media and male dominated fields pretty thoroughly. Most women can act this role and men tend to accept it at face value. Men have not bothered to learn to fit into female culture and are, in fact, not welcomed there very much.
A man trying to be one of the girls is not seen as a positive by the women involved typically, they are suspicious. But there's also something about it that sounds like it could be true. There's been a long-standing debate in cognitive science about whether the concept of similarity is symmetric.
Tversky pointed out in the '70s that people are willing to assent to the sentence "North Korea is like China but China is not like North Korea. Tversky instead proposed a feature-based similarity model.Coach McGuirk on Tattoos!
In this model, similarity is judged along not all the features of the two items being compared, but features that are made salient according to context and convention. In comparisons of the form "A is like B", people conventionally place the term that refers to the more prototypical or important element in the second position.
This determines the features of the items upon which the similarity judgment is based. But "China is like North Korea" was judged false because North Korea was the stereotype of an evil dictatorship and people did not want to say that China was an evil dictatorship as well. Well, actually, I'm not sure what the stereotype of North Korea was at the time. But whatever it was, it wasn't one that made salient a feature shared by China. So, take McGuirk's "women are like men but men are not like women.
Women have certain features that are stereotypically female, but men largely do not share those features. The cultural stereotype of femaleness includes some features that are shared e.
In other words, the "woman" stereotype distinguishes women from men but the "man" stereotype does not distinguish men from women.
Consider why Pac-Man is read as male without a gender signifier but Ms. Pac-Man has a bow. So, in a way, Coach McGuirk is right.
