Then again, better not.
Cryptic phrase from intelligent women affect me. I'll recover from the fleeting thoughts.
Then again, I just re-read the OP's title....A warning to all Males. I better heed that advice.
See how easy we can fall into the abyss of a womans soul.
Okay, guys, feminine mystique is a total shell game. I know you don't want to hear this, but you probably should. There is no Mystery.
Women are at a physical disadvantage, and are rarely trained in self-defense. They need protection, they are looking to to avoid victimization. That
is why women propagate their version of the feminine mystique crap. Which has backfired pretty seriously when awe turns to fear in the masculine
Men have their own version of the Female Mystery, and as far as I can tell, it is just an excuse to view women as another species. Also, to give them
something Dark to penetrate. The desire to avoid understanding, which might necessitate growing the **** up and taking off the leashes we tug
eachother around on.
Problem with that is that does not even begin to apply to me. I require no other person to protect me as I can do that for myself, thank you very
much. I can take down a walking outside toilet made of brick with 1 well placed touch ( no, I fight fair, no genital punches ), but better yet I show
the confidence on the outside ( I can walk the street at 3 o'clock in the morning and never get hassled ). But I always try to avoid Violence as that
is not the way to do things.
And with me it is = What you see is what you get!
Generalizing is not the right way to approach people!
You are an awesome exception. I say exception, b/c I have been doing a lot of looking into this lately, and msg. board responses by women on this
subject are characterized by very positive reactions to the concept of masculine protection. Here are a couple of examples, there's plenty more where
these came from:
I do find it odd, though, that mine was the post that touched a raw nerve, rather than the fellows who were going on about "the abyss of a woman's
soul". That's the sort of thinking that fuels witch hunts.
My observations are based on both hard-wired adaptive responses and the cultural tropes that they've spawned. These instincts persist in ever more
twisted and unrecognizable forms, the farther we drift as a species from the environmental factors that spawned them.
Men and women must understand where we begin in our connection to each other, otherwise progress is not possible.
Here's some of my favorite info ore on this topic:
The protective instinct inverted.
The neurochemistry of protection.
The tradition and seeming instinct of protecting women plays into this. The cry, “Women and children first”, was never taken to be a call
to arms. The Wikipedia article notes, regarding experiments with women in integrated units in the Israeli Defense Force:
The reason for removing female soldiers from the front lines is no reflection on the performance of female soldiers, but that of the male infantrymen
after witnessing a woman wounded. The IDF saw a complete loss of control over soldiers who apparently experienced an uncontrollable, protective,
Say what you will about the male and the protection instinct, it’s real and it’s there (and it’s not a bad thing).
This stuff doesn't just evaporate b/c everything in our environment is no longer out to kill us. Also? Feminine mystique is still a load of crap. I
may not have been encompassing all the causes for this backwards myth, but I'm pretty sure I'm not far off when I peg a woman's natural desire for
protection as a possible source.
There's nothing we can't understand about each other if we talk openly and frankly about who we are and what we need, not holding back or hiding to
gain leverage over one another. We've got to cut that out.
