It seems that some modern women go out of their way to be aggressive. Perhaps they feel a need to live up to some sort of unrealistic reality played for them by organizations such as NOW (National Organization of Women). Perhaps it is instilled in them on a subconscious level from the constant bombardment of the wrong media messages.
I feel that when a woman becomes unrealistically aggressive that they not only harm their own psyches, but do damage to any potential man, woman relationship that they might be trying to foster. If a woman becomes a man, in attitude, then a man in order to achieve the delicate balance in any reltionship may begin to act more like a woman being more passive when the situation may call for the opposite. A loss of T shortly follows.
Assertiveness, on the other hand, is a good thing for a woman to have, as it allows her to state who she and still maintain her femininity. She can walk away from any man who attempts to abuse her in any way. Yet, she feels no need to constantly compete with men, as she is secure with her femininity.
Some of the leaders in the womens movement, and some female politicians have indeed done a disservice to all women. They have pushed a sort of new age masculinity upon them. Not allowing them to be who they really are. They feel a need to live up to a certain unrealistic, unattainable ideal. This ideal which is rife with aggressiveness has not served most women very well. And has infact, harmed many relationships and caused unnecessary pain and heartache.
How do you T-men feel about it?
