I hate men but this kinds makes me feel for them if it's true.
@azzntittiz It is. Everything a man does is to prove himself to be useful to a woman. Its also why no one can hurt a man quite like a woman.
@hellion You are mostly correct, but biologically we still want a woman as capable as possible so the survival chance of our offspring is maximised. That way we also pass on a mix with the strongest genes. We still feel the urge to protect as you wrote, but the idea that we want a weak woman is questionable.
@Sucram thank you. I question that a lot myself. That is why I'm single. I'm very capable of doing many things weak woman can't and one of those things I'd do better is be a mom, wife, supporter etc. This is why I was almost married so many times, but they wanted to weaken me, even though its my strength and capability of being a great wife that attracted them. It was very contradictory.
@Sucram I never said we want a weak woman. Weak is a relative term, a woman who needs us is desirable, a woman who does not fight, does not endanger herself is desirable. That doesn't mean she is weak. We want a woman who is in good health, we want a woman who is nurturing and has the traits that are best suited for raising and nurturing children (and that nurturing aspect is good for men to as it gives an emotional outlet for them). Again, biology. If you think that feminine traits are a weakness then yes men like weak women, but that's not what I said, I don't think feminine is weak, I think its complimentary to men allowing us to function as a cohesive unit.
"So biologically men are predisposed to wanting a woman who needs them"If a woman needs me that's a weakness. Survival chances are higher together and it's better if she relies on me, but if I die, my woman should still be able to care for herself and the offspring, she shouldn't need me.
A woman should fight, should endanger herself to protect the offspring after the man passed away. Not before he dies, but she still should.
@Sucram Exactly, I have always wondered why men want women who will be unsuitable for child rearing. That is why I don't cower and try to be strong. Anything could happen to the man and my kids still need me, hell, he might even need me. What if he came back from war wounded? I will need to take care of him and the kids. Not something we hope for, but a weak woman will run away, worst yet take all his assets, kids and run off with a new man. It's usually what weak women do, they tend to be stupid and ruthless, check out snapped.
@Sucram Of course, I was reffering to needlessly or trying to act like a man, obviously a woman should protect her offspring, she is the second line of defence. I think your trying to read into what I am saying far to much. Yes their are circumstances where she should fight, if she is being harmed or some one is trying to rape her or harm her child, yes she should fight. Never suggested otherwise, I just thought that was a given. What I am saying is a woman should not go out of her way and try to act like a man, to try and fight to "save face" or what have you. That is not very appealing, as far as I know most men do not find it particularly appealing.
@azzntittiz Nobody wants that kind of woman. In fact the idea is so preposterous that I didn't even think I needed to mention it because it was just a given that she should protect her children. What I am saying (again) is that she should not try to act like a man, a man and their children really, do not need another man, they have that, what they need is a woman and she should act like a woman, and be a woman not a pseudo man.
