Being one of the key phenomena of human existence, loneliness is socially determined (gender colored). Phenomenology of loneliness, thus, gives out different ontologies: male and female. However, while "male solitude" fits into the usual classifications of the phenomenon of loneliness, "female loneliness", experienced and described by the subjects of loneliness (women), is only a symptom of loneliness of a different nature. In a society built on sexist principles (with an explicit monopolization of anthropopsychological expertise), such a diagnosis does not exist a priori: the emotional suffering of female lonely existence (viewed through the prism of the function of the household and motherhood) is attributed to the "emotional immaturity of the woman", which naturally results from the "flawed sex".
