Default Can you handel a strong Women

Now a days most women have carriers and even make more money then men. A strong character can be considered *****y sometimes. Speak your mind and do what you want . Double standerds come to minds. Have any of you women been reffered as a **** because of something you said or did. I have , but at least I can say they didn'y walk all over me.

Hmmm.... Well, i certainly wouldn't mind a woman having a better job than me, or making more money than me. Those kind of predjudices are ridiculous. But any successful relationship must be a two way street with both partners on an equal footing. I don't like anyone acting like my lord and master. I have a Lord and Master already in Jesus Christ and i don't need a romantic partner trying to do His job by trying to control me. By the same token, i don't want to control anyone, it doesn't feel good when someone tries to do it to me, and i won't treat someone that way either. Everyone gets angry from time to time. Situations get tense and frustrating and people get angry and lash out. The important thing is afterward, being able to recognize and admit that you were wrong and apologize for it, if you're the one who was being a complete twit. I think all people should be strong, because it's a strange and difficult world we live in and we all have to be strong to survive in it. Everyone from time to time opens their mouth too wide and inserts their foot in it also. We have to be willing to forgive for that too. But i have to say this: Women are different from men. They react different, they send out different warnings and reach out to others differently than men do. For me, women are extremely difficult to read. You think you know what they want and when you give it to them, you find out to your dismay that they were attempting to communicate something very different than you thought. It hurts to get stung. It isn't pleasant being misunderstood. And women misunderstand me A LOT! Somehow some women tend to think that all men are b**t*rds and that we all are covering some ulterior motive when we speak to them. That is absolutely NOT true of all men. Some of us just want to get along and to understand and be understood and to treat women well and to be treated well by them in turn. But getting to that point is a very tricky and delicate process that can be totally wrecked by one misunderstood or misspoken word. Romance is a mine field.

Women characters, I really see what you're saying, women in real life, I never know what's going to happen, which makes it interesting! I think you're avatar says alot about it. I mean here's a character that could be so cheesy! She's a brilliant scientist, she's a trained soldier, so she can kick a$$ with the best of them and she's also beautiful, a tough combination to pull off: brains, beauty and kick a$$! Sounds kinda sexist perhaps, but that's it when you boil it down, Sam's character could've been so bad, but the actress played it in such a way where it was absolutely believable. Going from explaining the finer points of relativity to how to blow up a star and then blowing away ten bad guys without blinking an eye and making it seem natural is no simple task and yet she still retains her femininity. I think Carter's a good example for what you're talking about cause to many young actresses it does seem that being b^tchy is the easiest way to show strength and that is so untrue. Ever watch Lost? Michelle Rodriguess was on it for awhile, she was also in Resident Evil 2, she basically played the same character, a b%tch, though in Lost she did seem to have issues that explained it, but basic point is, it's the easy thing to do, cause, I think of the stereotypes and roles of women set up in film and tv and that's why I think Carter is interesting, she seems real. Watch Alien, Weaver has it to, she's real without being a b%tch! Foster in Silence of the Lambs, Anderson in The X Files, all strong women, cause they are who they are, not cause they act like a b#tch. Someone who acts that way has issues, and they are not strong and that's what I felt about Rodrigues in Lost and Resident Evil 2. They're two dimensional, it's the Carters, Ripleys, Starlings, Scullys, President Roslyns, if you watch BSG that make it work and make it real, for me that is!

Well, long post there, didn't know I had that much to say about it!

I married a strong woman. This is the 21st century, people really need to finally let go of the old stereotypes.

I have made more money, she's made more money, who cares? It all goes to pay OUR bills... I am as proud of her accomplishments, as she is of mine.

I also like the current trend in films to have strong 'butt kicking" women, long overdue!

I prefer strong women. (Actually, I prefer to be "handled by" strong women...) Just so long as we negotiate beforehand, and we have a safeword in place, everything's cool.

I know that's why you pay the 120.00/hr for the pro Dominatrixes.

Why "I" pay, Zard? Hardly. All of the women I've ever had such relationships with did so because they just plain liked doing so... I have nothing against pros... but on my salary, I couldn't afford one if I was desperate.

BTW, according to a friend of mine who is a pro... your $120 an hour rate is about 1/3 the actual going price these days.
