Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
I have noticed a trend in media and in my own life that men who have daughters and younger sisters are much more likely to protect women in some way. My brothers, which I have 3 of, and My brother-in-law are all older than I am and were very protective of me when I started dating. Now 3 of the 4 of them have daughters and it's obvious they would do anything to protect them and teach them how to stand up for themselves. I know none of them would have been the type to sexually harass anyone before they had sisters and daughters, but the protectiveness they show truly intensifies once they have a vulnerable, innocent young girl in their life. It is very sad to think that it is so normal for men to harass women in todays world and how I have seen groups who just find it hilarious to do so. Something truly needs to change.
