Do guys deal with death in a different way than the girls do? Are men and women the same as long as we keep our clothes on? I am old enough that I don't fear popping off about gender related issues. That can get you in a lot of trouble. Yup, I'd say maleness is one of the big things that makes me what I am about everything. Including death. The number of women who write and read about death and attend grief support groups is far greater than the men. It might be argued that women live longer so of course there will be more of them dealing with death. Is there more to it than that?
