Marilyn Monroe wrote this article as an explanation as to why, in matters of friendship, she always preferred men:
"Bluntly, the fact is I find most men are more open, more generous, and much more stimulating than the majority of females I know... A man is more frank and [sincere] with his emotions than a woman. We girls, I'm afraid, have a tendency to hide our feelings... I find that men are less likely to let petty things annoy them."
Illustrated with seven photos, La Monroe carries-on in a similar vein for three pages declaring her propensity for the genuine and refreshing characteristics of men over the catty natures of women. It is highly likely that if she had a hump-back, bad teeth, and was sporting a goiter on her neck, she may have been otherwise inclined.
