Women nag about trivialities forever

Here is the Dear Annie column:
Dear Annie: When I was 11 years old, I made an insulting remark to one of my older sister's teenage friends, teasing her about her acne. The next day, my mother loudly confronted me about it, and my grandmother and sister joined in. For the next several months, if I said anything my mother didn't like, she'd angrily remind me of the horrible thing I'd done. For years after, she'd allude to it. This continued until I was close to 30. ...

Really, Annie, when can a 35-year-old man expect forgiveness for something he did when he was 11?
Okay, this is a no-brainer. An insult from a 12yo boy is a trivial matter requiring nothing more than to inform him of better manners.

But no, Annie won't let it go either.
Dear New Yorker: ... You have acknowledged your rudeness toward this young woman and, we assume, apologized to her at some point.
She wants him to apologize after 24 years?

There appears to be some genetic difference between men and women where women blow trivial matters out of proportion, memorize them, and nag about them for years. There ought to be a DSM-5 disorder for women who do this.

I was astounded when my ex-wife went into family court with an assortment of confusing gripes about trivial incidents that happened years in the past. And the judges and psychologists took her seriously! They could not figure out what she was really complaining about, but maybe they assumed that she had some legitimate beef that she was not expressing well.

A man's faults or errors are all hamster food for a woman's Bank Vault of Shaming Tactics. Women count the cards, keep score and never forgive nor forget. Circumspection and Rational thought are beneath Snowflake's regal view. It's all that progesterone in her bloodstream. When her hormones redline, she opens her vault and out comes the most preposterous nonsense a man will ever hear.

One more reason Western Civilization put a gun in its mouth and pulled the trigger the day it gave women the vote.

From an allegorical perspective, in the Book of Genesis, it was Eve who thought better, believed the serpent, ate the apple and convinced Adam to do the same.

Fast forward several millenium and now misandry is politically correct and institutionalized in bureaucracies in predominantly English speaking and "westernized" countries around the world.

Why do you think it's "Pandora's Box" and not Pan's ...
