Why do men expect women to "have something to offer" other than her body, but feel intimidated by women who has "something to offer"?Favorite Answer:
I think there is a hidden resentment among many men that we laud women for everything we laud about people generally *PLUS* being women, plus giving birth, plus the things they are more likely to sacrifice in order to have children, maintain a household, etc.
Everything we consider particular to men, society tends to downplay the importance of. We no longer care (or at least no longer SAY we care) if a guy is strong, can protect his family, etc.
So what ways are men allowed to excel over women? What ways are men politically correct saying "men can do this better than women"?
There is some truth to that. As society goes on, we tend to emphasize the importance of traditionally female skills and deride traditionally male skills.
Consider a recent series of chess games between a young man and young woman. She chose to wear revealing clothes to distract him and that was considered OK as the game is supposed to be all about head work and there wasn't anything illegal about it.
On the other hand, if he had reached over and beat the snot out of her or even threatened her, that would have been banned and he probably would have been kicked out of all forseeable chess tournaments.
No, I'm not saying he should have done that - but I am saying that women using natural advantages but excluding male natural advantages does destroy the concept of fairness.
You know and I know that not all women are good at handling children. But we also know that (at least in current society), women are more likely to be associated with this skill - and the fact that we apply this concept of the sacredness of motherhood to the entire gender while giving Dad a tie every father's day - it's got to wear on boys and men.
There is no politically correct reason to have pride in being male. Any attempt at having such pride is mercilessly shot down. The only thing coming close is when male action is to support women and children.
So, she's as smart as you AND she can care for children? What's a guy bringing to the picture?
Fortunately, most people recognize that relationships are a lot more complex than that and don't run their egos on such overly simplistic statements.10 AnswersGender Studies3 days ago

I doubt it. Ratings have been low across ALL SPORTS.
MLB hasn't been openly supporting any social justice agendas but the ratings suck. For the second game in a row, the Dodgers-Rays World Series sets all-time record for low viewership.
In my opinion, the low ratings are mostly to do with the pandemic (people have more important things to worry about), the mostly empty arenas robbing at home fans of a great experience, and the teams that played in the Finals aren't "great teams."
The Lakers and Heat are two pretty good teams but historically speaking I wouldn't call them great.

First, Venezuela is a dystopia, not a utopia. Second, it takes more than a POTUS/VPOTUS to change the economy of the US. Some exploiting economic sectors might find themselves with more government regulations to prevent them from exploiting Americans, but the US will always be the most capitalist nation on the planet.84 AnswersPolitics2 days ago

Don't tell me he uses legal loopholes. There is a reason why he won't release his tax returns: he is either nothing but a clown living on credit or a tax fraud. Which is it, Trumpies?56 AnswersPolitics2 days ago
