The following is a post from a friend who I’ll call “Tim.” I’m not going to give anymore of a setup than that. I can see his side of things, and although I am not one of these women he describes, I know some, and unfortunately, so does he. :S Anyway, let me know what you think.
I was brought up to value the special place women had in the family. They were daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, and more. They were blessed with being the very first love of children and keepers of the home. Women, from my perspective, kept the family on track. Even women that weren’t married carried themselves in such a way as to demand a certain level of respect, just because they were a woman. Even if you didn’t like a particular woman, you respected her as such and always wanted to be respectful.
The Problem Is…
Sadly, it seems that somewhere along the line, women decided that being a woman was a dirty word. Women decided that they needed to feel equal to a man. I’m not talking about simply wanting to be paid the same wages for performing the same work; I’m talking about actually taking on some of the same traits, mannerisms, and even nasty attitudes. Women got busy going to school, getting jobs, and putting off marriage and family. All of a sudden, it was more important to be an equal and not need a man for anything than it was to actually value who you were; a woman.
Is there any wonder why men struggle with understanding modern women? On one hand, they want all the traditional courtesies and considerations given a women of generations past, while on the other thinking it okay to roll their eyes at their man because he asked for a glass of water. I mean, “Why can’t he just get up and get his own glass of water?”
It seems that today’s man has to spend a lot of time sparring with women instead of loving them. Is that supposed to inspire love and affection, or does the modern woman even need those things anymore. After all, she has her on money, her own house, her own career, and if she happened to have a baby along the way, she even has a courthouse full of people eager to make sure she gets paid for being a mom… oh, I forgot, that money is for the kid.
I’ve never seen such arrogance as I do with today’s women. What really makes it worse is to see them online talking about how there aren’t any good men, how men are scared of a “strong woman”, and how men are just dogs who only want sex. These women actually want to play the “victim-card” like they don’t play any part in their dilemma.
Case in Point
I don’t have a problem with ‘Strong Women’, I have a problem with women who’ve traded in everything that made them special in order to be something they aren’t.
Here’s an example….
