Well, there you go; there lies the problem. Almost in every civilization, since the dawn of time, the female has always been used as the barometer for
the male to mesure his “statue”.
I think this IS the fault of men.........it is an EGO issue.......
Men must feel superior to the woman he chooses as a mate, either he conquers her sexually or he conquers her mentally. If and when a man feels
'threatened' by a strong female he does NOT see her as attractive....he see's her as trying to 'outdo' him because of how competitive men are,
and he will loose sexual interest.
He may enjoy the banter with a stimulating conversationalist but when it comes to choosing a mate, he tends to chose the one he feels more protective
of...........and for a woman to be seen as in need of this male protection she MUST be submissive to this EGO side of a man....ergo 'needing'
him............cooing to him "Ohhhh your SO BIG and your SO SMART, your my HERO"..........
The old Barbra Streisand movie called 'YENTEL' is all about this very subject.......Yentel is very smart and outspoken, but woman were not allowed
to study in collage, so she dresses as a man....she becomes best friends with this other man, who when he learns she is in fact a she, he no longer
see's her as even quite human......because woman NEED to worry about being feminine and soft and not strong willed and smart.....in the end, poor
smart and witty Yentel is left alone, while the man she crossed wits with runs after a woman with fluffy curls and a shy giggle.
In the real world many men say they want a smart woman.......and the smarter woman know to keep most ideas they have to themselves so that the man can
feel superior.......because men have NO desire for a woman he feels is unconquerable........he does not want to fight a war he will never win...so the
smart woman allows for him to 'reign supreme'
All woman know that when they set their sights on a certain man, they NEED to be softer and more 'needy' and to never EVER out smart the guy in a
serious conversation, as this causes him to look elsewhere for a mate.
So in truth, it is just easier for the females to not even bother with the inner workings of major appliances, when they are busy trying to figure out
the inner workings of a mans ego & heart.
heh................I could be wrong..... but.............look around.
