Are men afraid of women?

After reading lots of blogs I am coming to sort of a conclusion.

Men are afraid of women.

Men have always got to be in control.

Men like their women helpless and submissive.

Women who can operate heavy equipment scare men.

Women who have opinions and express them scare men.

Women who are independent financially scare men.

Women who are better at doing things than men scare men.

Women who are in charge of their own sexuality scare men.

What do you think?
Men who think like this scare me...because they end up becomming President and run our country into the ground.

Thanks for visiting. This is a core issue it seems.

I think it probably scares timid, insecure men, but not men who are confident in themselves as men, and confident in their own abilities.

But I wonder how many really are confident of themselves and their own abilities?

My hi sexuality as it grew over the years scared my then hubby. It made him so insecure he could not handle it. I wasn't even looking for anyone else I just wanted us to try new and different things. I have found after my divorce that it does scare many men away.

We grow or we die. I think a lot of people faced with being stifled have to move on.

"Hello... my name is Inigo Montoya... you killed my father... prepare to die!!"

um.. sorry. watching a movie.

Lots of men can't take orders from a woman. When I started my first job, there was a guy that started the same day I did. The manager and assistant manager were both women. Trying to get him to work was ridiculous. He backtalked on everything, sneered at orders, and didn't listen to anything. Naturally he was gone within a few days.

I guess that has nothing to do with fear. oh well.

*makes you a pot of coffee*

I get a kick out of the relationship between like executive women and male subordinants. Talk about passive aggressive behaviour....

I've sexually only scared one man lol. Though it's possible our after-sex talk scared him too. We gave eachother foreign language lessons, and history culture discussions, and linguistics, war, life, religion... politics.

i think i've been very lucky in the men i meet, both on this site and in real. they tend to love experimenting and debating and ... i think tend to prefer strong women.

And if the blog persoanlities mean anything...there's some very cool and strong and wonderful women in blogville.

(What the fuck is this shit..?? *rolls eyes*)

No shit and what I find so amusing is they try so hard to cover up the painfully obvious. If they'd just accept that they DON'T need control for an independent woman to stick around or to have a say in the relationship. They might even find Life in general easier to deal with...Ready

Actually it was a comment of yours that prompted my post.
so sad guys can't get over it and accept the glory of equality.

... I think a lot of guys are afraid of women, but more afraid of being alone...
Like the saying goes "women want to be loved, men need to be"

By nature males seem to be more expendable(?) perhaps more so in species where the males are larger/more combative and born in higher numbers -like humans- so there is some logic to being afraid of women ... the wrong one might just destroy a guy -bankruptcy, death, humilation- with no real purpose other than she believes she deserves what she wants.

Just the way it seems to me though.

well, i sure can't scare men with my formidable knowledge of heavy equipment (NOT!), but it seems that a confident woman is too much for many men to handle - so pffft! bye bye to them 'cuz, watch out world, here we come!

puntachueca replies on 7/25/2006 11:34 pm:
right on. and you know damned well if you ever wanted to run a backhoe, you could do it and probably do it better than most guys.

Yup. Still can't figure out why so many men on this site call me "intimidating". I mean, I'm 5'3" ...

size has nothing whateoever to do with it...the smarter and more expresive of that a woman is, the more frightening that is to many guys.
my ex is about 5 2 blond..and one day in an investment banking meeting the banker was focused on me and ignoring her even though she was the CEO, and she bit his head off. I loved it.

I dont seem to scare then but I fail all of those tests if you count driving a tractor as heavy machinery. Anyway, regardless of that I seem to have other ways to deter mens' enthusiasm.

the trick is pick the right men....not so easy....

Those are the reasons I scare men and/or boys? Hell, I thought all this time it was the 'Baroness' attitude {well, one of 'us' has attitude, must have! }

I always thought way back in cave days the ladies were really smart.." go out into the ice and snow and hunt that sabertooth tiger and I'll stay right here in this nice warm cave" and the guys ran out into the snow thinking he was smart and macho.

LOL! I had a similar meeting recently. A couple of guys from LA came out to do a technical presentation of a risk arbitrage product to me and my senior team members. I was the youngest in the room by at least 5 years, and only one of two women. The guy from LA kept talking to the men on my team, and after two tries to regain control of the conversation, I grabbed my notes and stood up to leave.

"I'm done. I thought this was going to be a meeting to make a final decision, but if it's just informational, I have other things to do. Let me know when your boss is available."

"It is a decision meeting. I'm the decision maker."

"Not anymore, you're not." I left.

He turned to the most senior of my team members, a guy who's 20 years older than I am. "I don't understand the problem."

"I think you just pissed off our boss."

They tell me the look on his face was priceless.

You may be right, but not as far as I'm concerned. I LIKE all of those things in a woman. Joe
