Complicate: (v) to make something more difficult by causing it to be more complex.
It is very sinister that men have succeeded in attributing feminine qualities and responsibility to negative emotions.
For instance, a worry-wart rarely has hairy armpits.
“Picky” is associated with those who smell like flowers.
And of course, “nagging” could never be done by the sons of Adam.
Men, as a gender, roll their eyes to make it clear that women are the culprits who complicate matters.
Even though the federal government is predominately inhabited by those familiar with the urinal, and there is no other group that complicates matters more through this alleged check-and-balances among the executive, legislative and judicial branches–even though this is true–women are still portrayed as the villains for insisting on working from a check list before going on vacation.
It may surprise you that red tape has no female origin. It is a term that came about by the minutia generated by the army during the Civil War in order to accumulate useless information.
“Complicate” has no gender. It is a nasty vice which always tries to remove the hope from faith so love will die.
