because i think there is a very important difference between letting the pizza get cold and beating someone into submission
Harshly criticize a demographic of black people; you're a racist. Tell someone their opinion is worth less because they are a 20 something white guy; you're progressive.
Meh I prefer girls not to play games with me. I'm not in it for a game. You'll only serve to piss me off. I had one bad experience with a girl(Wasn't romantic but close) and I don't intend to repeat history.I would agree with you.
Plus it makes it harder for us woman who do not play that game. It seems to confuse some men/boys
Problem is then you get less confident men or guys who might be more passive in alot of ways or are just trying to be nice who really would do ll they can to care for them who get overlooked.
It is honestly quite vexing.
Plus. If they overlook you- they might not be that into you. We will go out of our way if we like you. Move on it also means they probably are not right for you, if they can not accept you in all your colors- no good.
I'm a man and I fear what some other men are capable of. Hell even I feel a little uncomfortable walking home alone because I didn't want to pay for a cab and I'm fairly built and capable of defending myself. There are some seriously dangerous men out there and there way more of them then women.
One only has to look at the history books(and even today still in less fortunate areas then my own) to see what happened to a cities female citizens when they were conquered by an opposing army or total anarchy broke out. Beyond that there's the fact that males commit way more violent crimes then women. As a man I recognize that we really don't have the greatest track record historically when it comes to the safety of woman and considering there feelings. This is why they are so cautious I think at least partly, back in the day it was how they survived the fact they had little to no rights. That mentality isn't needed as much these days in modern society, but there no denying there are obviously still men around that give them need for it still.

The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune
What are we really talkig about here?
Men are childish and women are hypocrits. That's the conclusion. The end.
Statix will suffice.
That is indeed it and you're right about what i meant. Just vexing when people fully dismiss my point or assume i'm bashing women. I may have issues with extremist feminists but i honestly do care for women and others. I just don't like how people ASSUME it's all about power when many other reasons could be there.
And sorry about not clarifying but i DO feel that most men at least have the POTENTIAL to under EXTREME cases that will almost never happen IRL..I am not a 100% kinda guy so even that .001% chance for some men is still reason to consider.
You're just re-iterating the 'nice guy' fallacy, that girls date assholes and miss out on the 'nice guys' patiently waiting on the side.
The issue with that is it's incredibly misogynistic and demeaning to women. What you're saying, really, is that you think your behaviour means you're owed a woman. You're not being an ass, therefore she SHOULD like you, and if she doesn't, that's not fair. That's bullshit. You're not "being nice", you just lack the self-confidence to express your inner asshole.
There's plenty of guys out there who are decent guys, who aren't scared of women, and don't face either issue. The "nice guy" thing is just the passive-aggressive variant of the same assholes they complain about.
It obviously varies and most men never will but there are at LEAST some cases where it comes down to essentially hormonal override of reason. I am NOT saying it is right i AM however saying it is all about power is a lie that makes it easier to try and see things a certain way.
