I was just reading jRICHARDS mytake where he wrote 5 things that he loved about women. Now, typically when i plan on reading through a myTake, I read the comments first just so i can get a gist of what its about and what I'm in for. Well, after reading some womens comments, I was expecting WAY worse. I mean shit... one of his points was that he thinks women are generally selfless, which i think is a bit over the top but that didn't seem to stop a lot of girls from hating the take so perhaps it wasn't -_- He also thinks women are sexy and cute. OH THE HORROR
I mean really? Is life so good that we find offence in stuff like this nowadays? When i think of what i like about women specifically, the first things i'm gonna list are not going to be stuff like "they are so smart, they are so capable, la de da da" These aren't things that I specifically attribute to women, because both genders are equally capable of doing what they set their mind to. If i were to make a list like this, it would consist of traits and characteristics that i see as fairly specific to women in general. Things like their looks, their mannerisms, their quirks, etc. But now I feel like i'm living in an age where people wake up seeking something to be offended by with every fiber in their body. Unless the guy derives his sexual arousals from womens supreme intellectualism, some of you throw a fit in the comment section about how brilliant women are, which to me comes across as grossly unnecessary.
Look, I believe that most women on here are fairly astute individuals. As astute individuals, you should already know that there are largely two types/camps of guys on here: The guys that really don't give a shit about how smart and capable you think women are, and the guys who already know and acknowledge how smart and capable women are. So my question is... when you leave these sorts of comments on mild myTakes like the one Richards made, who exactly are you talking to?

I'm not answering your question, but good... lord... do I agree with you! And I'm pretty big too on what was someones intention? I think his intentions were to write a genuinely nice myTake. Lets crucify him now! People are offended by soooo much these days. There was a lot of power tripping going on in those comments.1

I think they just do it to blow off frustration and get validation from other girls who share their opinion. They will upvote each other, post gifs on each others opinions and basically just high-five each other via the internet.
It's the same when they write takes. For example sometimes women will write takes on why guys shouldn't do X and then the entire take is essentially them bitching about guys who do X in a condescending tone. Realistically none of the guys who do X are going to read that take and change their viewpoint. All it does is allow them to blow off steam and get validation from the people who already agreed with them. They didn't actually change anyone's views or make a difference.2
