Oh, and he's happy as hell to move heavy objects for me because I cook for him. JMO


I feel the same way. While I am thankful for the women before me that fought for my right to work...get an education, etc... at the end of the day.....I don't want to be a man's equal because....well we aren't equal. We aren't made the same....physically or mentally. I admire our differences.....that's why I'm attracted to those testosterone ridden creatures!!!!

It's quite often true about many qualities in profiles. I think people are often fighting their own demons when writing profiles.

I think they are hoping the other person doesn't have the same sort of problems they themselves have.

Maybe i'm not keeping up with the times but i would like some comments & views about what it is, how it may affect some women's lives & way of thinking. So is it only a state of mind or also a behavior?


It is both. It is also a liberal movement...at least in a sense. Commonly, liberal movements are any calls for mass change that is in contrast to the founders original intentions. Modern conservatives try to change history by afflixing certain progressive ideals on the founding that contrast to the spirit of the document. This helps them to make the case that the founders had it right in the begining. In fact...the founders were biggoted, racist slave owners who consider themselves to be elite among species due to their ideals (instead of their actions). This has shaped concervative rethoric for decades now.

Conservative systems of government however are built on absolutes; absolute rights and wrongs. Because they are so rigid, they cannot tolerate shocks to the system. It is out of this manufacturing flaw that liberal movements form. These movements are usually grounded in equality, fairness and civil rights (things that require change to a system that is resistent to changes). The feminist movement was one such movement.

I think it is often overexaggerated by those women who don't understand it. Often times, they equate equality to the demeanor of men, rather than a fundemental problem with the system of country culture. In doing this, they emulate the worse qualities in men (watch a few videos featuring Ann Coulter and you will understand). They can be obnoxious, apathetic, arrogant and aggressive creatures which they feel is necessary to fit in. In otherwords...they exhbit the same techniques used by males to be the "alpha male".

This blending of mantalities however is contradicting to the nature of feminism which is pride in who WOMEN are, while acquiring the same rights and privilages as men (like equal pay); NOT necessarily social equality. In otherwords...a woman is socially different than a man and is subject to certain social norms that they enjoy (not paying for dates and wearing dresses for instance). This contradition becomes readily apparent with many of the dichotomies we see here on POF. A woman who wants a "traditional man" who picks her up and pays her date; however, a traditional woman would acquiess to the every will of her man and speak only when spoken too....and women find the new school REALLY quick when faced with that idea.

I could go on...but I think I've made my point.

Wow thanks for assuming I have issues for being born a tomboy :P I was playing with cars, trucks, tractors, etc while I was still in diapers, I preferred them. But again, love how you assume every woman is born thinking one way :P and was somehow corrupted by the evils of feminism :)

surfaceofficer, you make some very good points but I have to point something out with
reference to
They can be obnoxious, apathetic, arrogant and aggressive creatures which they feel is necessary to fit in. In otherwords...they exhbit the same techniques used by males to be the "alpha male".


In many pack/herd animal social structures, there ARE alpha females, "boss mares"etc...but I don't think wolves or horses are worried about who cooks, who takes out the trash or who pays for the date. I happen to believe that there are alpha females who are not arrogant, obnoxious,aggressive. In fact, with human females OR males, the ones being arrogant,obnoxious,aggressive, domineering-are NOT actually alphas, and this is given away by their behavior. True alphas get things done without pissing everybody off.

that's why I'm attracted to those testosterone ridden creatures!!!!


Well, I'm glad to hear that--especially with all those exclamation marks! But testosterone's not only important for men. If women didn't have just the right touch of it, they wouldn't have lustful thoughts about us. It's the indispensable ingredient for the female libido.

Excellent addition.

What i guess the spirit of my statement was is that they can exhibit the WORSE qualities in certain alphas (which was historically males in reference to humans).

Your comment brings light to an important point; Alphas are determined by the needs of the group/pack and so on. They are prioritized as such and determined based on a number of factors (for animals...most notably the environment).

Lets take lions for instance. The alpha male isn't such because of the amount of good he does the pack (I'm sure you know, the lionesses do all of the unting), but for the protection of the pack from natural predators and thus (by virtue of said protection) leaderhsip through migration.

Some species not indigenous to regions where they face potential threats, or species where the male is not significantly more physically capable than the female...rolls can shift to the alpha female for that species.

Now let's equate that the humans. Historically...men did the work, bought home the money to provide the food and provided strong genes to bear strong children. Posturing between males for female selection was based on their abilities to provide these factors that women desired. Ironically...this posturing could (innately) turn animalistic, resulting the the traits i described as the traits exhibited by alpha males (which should've been said as the WORSE traits).

Men are not use to posturing against females, because there is no historical innate need, so when women posture against men, it creates an uncomfortable situation for the men (which is why you sometimes hear that men fear strong women - that is true in several cases). Women on the other hand have MOTIVATION to posture against men (oppression, biggotry ect.), much of which is still alive and well.

Reminds me of a joke I was once told.

Adam is gamboling around the Garden of Eden, naming animals, wandering aimlessly, wishing God would invent cable, when God pops in for a visit. "How ya doin', Adam?" God says.
"I'm ok, God, but I dunno, I feel kinda, lonely or something. Talking to the animals is nice, but they don't talk back."

God says, "So you want a companion?

Adam: "Yes!"

God ponders this for a moment and says; "OK Adam, I can create for you a companion. This companion will be your perfect partner, compliment and care for you in every way. You will never be lonely, lack for compassionate company, never be alone again. There is a downside, however."

Adam says, "What is it, Lord?"

God says, "This companion will cost you your right arm and left leg."

Adam looks at God and says: "What can I get for just a rib?"

Apologies .

Very true. I've never had my hormone level's checked.....but I would be willing to bet that I have "just that right amount" that women need for that healthy libido.

I feel sorry for the IDIOT who said this. WTF??!!

Someone who claims to be radical feminist lol
It's amusing and sad at the same time how emotionally unwell women will go to incredible lengths to disguise misandry as a just cause.


I've seen several of your posts in this thread and give you full credit for pointing out hatred. Can't take anything away from you on that account. Well done. Where you fall off is the suggestion that one form of hate coupled with another makes a happy medium.

If you read my post you may understand my perspective and aversion to feminism. Innate nature of it is unbalance in gender relations and lack of consideration for human nature. Hate will always exist, there is not much can be done about that. What I suggest is confining and balancing out that hate. Essentially bringing misogynists and misandrists together.


Or they could just be tired of getting paid 70 cents on every dollar a man makes for equal work.

Just a thought.
Having Motown_cowgirl in a thread is like having heavy cruiser in a corvette battle. One shot with logic gun clears the water.



It took 828 messages and a long winded rant, but somebody finally got it right.

Minimizing female contribution is one of the major failures in patriarchy.


A woman who wants a "traditional man" who picks her up and pays her date; however, a traditional woman would acquiess to the every will of her man and speak only when spoken too....and women find the new school REALLY quick when faced with that idea.
Naturally when given the choice anyone will pick a selfish one. As there are always two sides to a coin, males do similar change of mind. Faced with easy sex and traditional household they want to get laid on a first date and have woman taking care of children and making dinner after she get back from work. Essentially, in current society, it is up to men now to step up and set up fair game rules.


Owh I must be an evil feminazi cause I use men for sex when they pay for a date and they dont get pizzed off about it~ silly me...
Some males lack self respect. It isn't new. They see sex and women as commodity. That mindset is infectious and women believe that their value is based on their sex organs.

If Christianity were followed, as it was designed, it wouldn't only be Sharia Law who'd resort to stoning women:


Sorry verygreeneyes, had to correct this...
Christianity? As in followers of Jesus Christ? Um, wasn't he the dude who by his words/example dissuaded a mob from stoning the woman caught in adultery?
John 8:4-12New International Version (NIV) "4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9 At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
11 “No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”


Jesus was incredibly compassionate and RADICALLY different from everyone in his day in his attitude towards women... ie. he treated them as human beings... The first person he claimed to be the Messiah to was a woman who'd been married 5 times who wasn't even a Jew! To a woman of no standing, no importance... The first to see him raised from the dead were, again women... whether you believe the Bible or not, this is a significant departure from Judaism, and the subsequent Islam on the roles of women... Important not to confuse people who claim to follow Him with who He is... V-e-r-y different....


In fact, with human females OR males, the ones being arrogant,obnoxious,aggressive, domineering-are NOT actually alphas, and this is given away by their behavior. True alphas get things done without pissing everybody off.

Agreed...
