Others have remarked upon it and I see it too...the amount of ambient female-bashing on ATS is on the rise.
To counter this trend, I hereby make a thread dedicated to the positive aspects of femininity as seen from a male point of view.
I do not believe men and women are mentally, physically, or spiritually identical. I believe we are very different -- physically, mentally,
spiritually, emotionally -- but viva la difference!
So I'll start.
1) Women provide me with a reson to go on living. Literally. I have often been depressed or upset but my responsibilities to the women in my life
(mother, mates and daughters) have forced me to structure my life and live it in a way that is probably more sane and sustainable than whatever
nihilistic life I would have been likely to cook up on my own.
2) It's politically incorrect to say women are more empathic than men, but guess what: That's been my experience. The best listeners, the most
patient, the kindest, the most understanding people in my life have always been women. Yes there are empathic men and cold-as-ice women, but in the
balance I see more warmth and understanding from women.
3) Sex. Love it. (sorry, but if I am to be honest I have to include this one)
4) Relief from male-male competition: Put two men in a room and they will find some way to compete. Maybe its money or status or whose wife is
prettier or who can eat the spicier chili pepper or whatever. It becomes very difficult and stressful to deal with this stuff all the time...there is
a great relief in letting that petty garbage go when talking to women rather than men.
