I was just thinking about this...
I can see why women would think that men have become more cowardly, because so many men today are spineless -- just want sex, don't want to risk a relationship, don't want to bother asking a girl out, etc.
But I also see women being a lot more cowardly than ever before. I give an analogy to dancing...
In dancing, the man commonly takes the lead but the woman also actively follows. She's not passive. She anticipates what comes next, so she is ready. For dancing to work, both people have to take it seriously.
But today, when it comes to dating, flirting and relationships, women understand that men are supposed to take the lead. But what they don't understand is that they also have an important role...
They think that it's OK to just stand in the background, and let the man dance by himself...like he's putting on a show for them. They think that it's enough to just stand still and occasionally clap to give encouragement or look the other way to show boredom, but not really participate.
So who is has become worse...men or women?
- Men have become worse cowardsVote A
- Women have become worse cowardsVote B

I agree. I have noticed that many of my friends tend to expect men to organise the relationships and carry out all the courtship. The seem to believe that once they are impressed they will suddenly slot in to the prepared relationships. But on the other hand I believe that guys are a lot more sleezy these days and are not prepared to try to conduct a proper relationship with a girl.
Unfortunately it seems girls are no longer as lady-like and men are not as gentleman-like, I would like such things to change, but somehow I think we are increasingly becoming a vulgar society.7
