Men always had what they really wanted. Thus the question is intrinsically irrelevant.
Every time I hear a woman exclaim that she can’t figure out men, I laugh really hard. Why? Because there’s positively nothing to figure out about men. Men are rarely sophisticated animals – even the ones with a genius level IQ. Men are more animal than even we are willing to admit. That’s why I had not spent any time writing a post entitled “What Men Really Want” – well, not until now.
Please be advised; this will be very short.
“While our minds may have evolved, our bodies have not.”
I recently discovered that the reason why moths fly into an open flame is because they were engineered by nature to navigate by night using the light of the moon. However, when men came around and invented fire, it messed with the moth’s navigation system – which 70,000 years later, has not yet been upgraded by natural evolution. The same problem also affects humans.
It is why men are capable of being in love with more than one woman, why several women are mutually inclined to gravitate towards one man, why a teen girl who knows about unwanted pregnancy would still have unprotected sex, and why boys aware of the outcome of truancy will still drop out of school.
We’re making these observations not because they’re strange, but because our society has made them seem that way after many centuries of cognitive evolution. The vast disparity between intellect and nature that results creates what I would like to call an Intelligence Bottleneck. This is a perfectly good explanation for some of the inexplicably stupid things rational humans still do.
“Women who desire to become equal with men become less valuable as women.”
I, the fat lady, do hereby declare that I have sung. Now where’s my lighter?
If all the women in the world were to be truly liberated, in the sense that they were all educated at the same level as their male counterparts, given truly equal opportunities to occupy all the same positions that men currently do, what do you think will happen to our capacity to continue our existence?
