The problem isn't that a woman can't teach a young man to treat women well. The problem is that he won't listen. That's the issue with the young men who turn to gangs on the streets. Their mothers could be angels. But they are looking to leadership under someone whose hands are like theirs, whose bodies are like theirs, whose voices are like theirs. And that's where they learn how to treat women: from men. You look at guys who learn how to treat women from women and they are usually incels because they learn the gentle side but they don't learn the balance.
So from my perspective, if we want young generations to treat women with dignity, respect, you find a man who is honorable, respectable -- a leader -- who treats women that way. And you get him to teach your boys how to act.
Thank you, that's a very interesting point of view. I just often feel like men DO know how to treat women, but just won't because they hold some grudges and bad experiences with women in general (from their past), so they don't want to feel hurt or do the hurt themselves.
We're all still very flawed. I like to think I'm one of the better ones but I have hurt some women in the past, especially in my 20s. I was too afraid to tell them my true feelings which is that I didn't really want them. I didn't ghost them. I lingered around and gradually worked my way up to it although I'm not sure if that's any better. The thing is that I had men who at least taught me enough to feel guilty and ashamed about it. It wasn't my father so much. My parents divorced when I was a boy and I was stuck with my mother. I looked to men and books and things like that for advice. Initially, I looked to my mother but I found her advice hyper-romantic, and I could easily imagine myself being like one of these young guys complaining on here about women if she was my only guide.
We all can use help. Good behavior should be rewarded. Each woman is different. We are not mind readers. Let us know what you like and we can try to help you feel content.
And yeah we learn wrong stuff taught to us too
Thanks for like!
