The central theme is that of the imbalance between female and male. It can be that the men are too dominating. Or for women who become too masculine, who have the feeling that they have to behave like men. They do not want to be told what to do and have the feeling that the contact between men and women will always be a fight.
But the opposite can happen too, that men are too weak, too feminine and do not have the guts to stand up for themselves. They lack the male quality of assertiveness. It is for efeminate men. They have the oestrogen female quality too strongly. That can lead to breast development in men, flabbiness and obesity.
