Over at Dalrock’s, Deti writes,
Women have successfully sold and persuaded men (and all of society) on the concept that women become promiscuous only because of daddy issues or some mental/emotional void. Women don’t really like sex all that much; the only reason women have sex is because they want “emotional intimacy” and “love”.
Well, um, no. If that were the case, women would be having sex with very nice men who offer emotional intimacy and “spiritual healing”.
But they don’t. They have sex with very attractive men, one after another, in succession. They are not looking for love. They are looking to have fun. They are looking for good sex. In a lot of cases they are having sex with men they don’t know very well. It’s pretty difficult to have “emotional intimacy” with someone you don’t know very well. Though they’re not looking to get pregnant, their instinct is to secure alpha sperm so as to reproduce with the best available genes.
Men and women both desperately want men to believe this, for many reasons – the Women are Wonderful effect; to preserve the illusion of female goodness and purity so she can marry “well” when she decides to marry; and to avoid “losing” any women. Because men have a strong instinct to protect women at all cost, even women they don’t know very well, even at the cost of their own lives. You can see the effect of learning the truth on many men: they have a very hard time accepting women’s base nature when faced with it.
Yes indeed, men want to believe. Women are very happy to lead them on in this belief. Where might it come from? Probably many places,
I. Men seem to have a built-in drive to protect women, especially those of their group. These must be worthy subjects for protection, even when they are not.
II. This goodness is what they would want in wives and daughters, so they want to believe that it is inherent
III. Men believe that society will fall apart if women are not good, so any evidence otherwise must be discarded.
IV. Men learn that they are to work and fight as part of a team, and to be responsible to both himself and the team. In short – men are the responsible ones. So if there is bad associated with women, men must be responsible.
V. Seeing a pretty face can melt a man’s heart. How can anything bad be associated with that?
VI. Chivalry codified these concepts. Of course it was expected that women would live up to their end of the code. Still, chivalry lives on on the men’s side.
The Bible and other literature throughout history provide warnings with respect to this. Perhaps it is time to heed them.
