According my friend Becky, smart girls like sex. Gee, I’m glad to hear that because I was beginning to wonder as there’s seems to be more literature than I care to count lauding the single woman crisis. Crying about how the modern woman can’t find a good man.
It seems that high powered professional women are caught in a bind. They want to seek financial independence so as not to rely on a man for support once they are married. Yet the very thing they seek – high powered demanding jobs – is preventing them from getting married in the first place. Barbara Whitehead argues that “women with all-consuming careers are increasingly starved of opportunities to find a mate.” In her book called, Why There Are No Good Men Left: The Romantic Plight of the New Single Woman, Whitehead argues that, “Marriage bundled social goods together – sex, children, economic support, but the girl power project gave women access to all those things on their own.” In other words they don’t need men. But of course they do want men, if for nothing else than to supply them with seed to produce babies.
There’s nothing wrong with modern man.
The breakdown in the natural order is what is fueling the gender crisis.
I’m reminded of the Sheer pantyhose commercial that showed a woman prancing around in a business dress suit showing off her nice shapely legs covered of course in Sheer’s pantyhose singing the jingle:
“I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in pan, and never ever let you forget you’re a man because I’m a woman…”
High-powered career girls are too tired “on their nights off to pull on a little black dress and trawl the bars looking for candidates to fill the vacant position.” Just buy a man like you buy anything else, she suggests. “After all, we pay for people to cook, clean, iron, drive, and dress us, so why not pay for a partner?” And so it is that men have been reduced to appliances, no longer needed in the relationship, except for as a usual tool or service.
Men have become the embodiment of J. Alfred Prufrock:
No I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was I meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advice the prince, no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous-
Almost, at times, the Fool.
It has been an absolute screamer of a day for the end of men. In yet another article, research done by scientist at St Andrew’s University, suggests that a feminine face is the key to a woman’s heart. In their research they found that modern women want caring feminine traits rather than more macho markings in their men. Single women apparently want a trophy partner, a “new man” with domestic attributes that her friends can admire at a party, but who can be trusted not to go home with any of them. This Adonis “has large expressive eyes set in a smooth-skinned symmetrical face, straight nose and rounded hair and jaw line.”
