This is sort of like the reverse of the whole "bad boy" question.
It has always been true that women will be attracted to the bad boys, at least in some way. They may not all want to marry a bad boy, and they certainly won't be attracted to every bad boy they meet, but there's something about danger that makes a woman a little giddy. Admit it, girls, and we can move on.
But how's about men? How do they respond to girls who have pretty hardcore attitudes? I don't mean biker chicks, per se, but outspoken girls who really embrace the word "bitch," who are obviously really, REALLY bitter about life in general. That's what "bitch" is starting to mean to me, and some recent GaG stuff seems to be revolving around that one word. It makes me think: If the days of the quiet, demure, ultra-feminine girls are gone, and we're now in the "this is me; take it or GTFO" era, do men really find that attractive?
Then again, it's clear that women can have very different definitions of the word "bitch." It's obviously pretty subjective; case in point:
Okay, I don't like that any more than I do the bitter chicks with the horrid attitudes. And I certainly have no interest in women who have no opinion on anything. I can't stand it when a girl just shrugs and says, "we can do whatever you want to do." I care nothing for girls with no backbone because I don't respect ANYONE who doesn't have a backbone. But I admit...there's something not-so-appealing about a girl whose attitude and personality is just plain over-the-top and/or depressing.
These bad attitudes that girls seem to be embracing aren't even "bad." I mean, not really. They have every right to be as loud and obnoxious as a guy...but the girls are now drowning out the guys in the "loud and obnoxious" category. Bitterness seems to be driving these very loud female personalities and men sometimes feel as if they're on the receiving end of that bitterness. Which they didn't earn. Some other guy pissed off this girl and now she's pissed at every other guy.
It being Valentine's Day soon, I wonder if this almost cheerful bitterness can morph into something extra nasty after enough time passes:
I dunno, I love girls with unique personalities and who aren't afraid to let their thoughts and feelings out. But there's a difference between "personality" and "attitude fueled by bitterness," isn't there? I think there is.
