    I hadn't thought of it in terms of a distinction between attraction and desire. Also, have some fiber if you can stomach it, the symptoms remind me of my pregnancies. Not fun, at least you won't have to push a large baby through a tiny opening at the end of this! :joke:

    I'm still doing it wrong because now I just see a feminazi claiming rape every time her [real] man propositions her for sex. On wait, you said 30 degrees to the right, not the left... now I see it!

    Funny, all I see is Cerberus versus Batman.
    Being a dick is not a gender issue and you can be one whether you have one or not. I agree, the perspectives are fascinating and I'm greatly enjoying the ping pong match with the invisible ball.

    I think it's hilarious that everyone's position is transparent due to the fact that they are basing that position on no actual real world information. It's a Rorschach test.

    Too much agenda soap boxing, not enough empathy or good intentions all around.

    people are quick to take 'sides' to push their own agendas which is interesting in its own light.

    TRUTH!

    I understand there are differences between the preferences, but don't see their relevance to the discussion, since the main argument related to the dating arena is that someone changes themselves to match someone else's preferences, in this case men, with respect to displaying emotionality, are changing to appeal to women. Regardless if the perception of what the change required is, is accurate or not, there's still no reason to change oneself according to others' desires. The influence only exists because some men allow it to - they don't have to appeal to women, not to mention forming a relationship by pretending to be someone you're not is not exactly a success.

    The 'blame' formulation is mine, but I find 'can perpetuate the repression' is not very different to it, just a 'nicer' way of phrasing it.

    I'm not sure people are conflating the terms. I agree that the repression in men/boys begins in childhood and I think it's the 'root' problem of all others. I'm not sure if you were referring to the confusion of the terms solely in the context of dating, but in general, I think by 'unemotional' people quite literally means lack of emotions, and not simply someone who is calm. For example, men are less likely to seek help for depression or other mental health issues, because it would be perceived as weak or something like that. So it's not solely not displaying the emotions outwardly that is expected, but not actually feeling them to an extent. As for dating, in the role of a stereotypical 'provider', I think that type of relationship does not involve intimacy and resembles more a business arrangement.

    I don't think it's relevant to that particular discussion whether the preferences regard physical or abstract traits - still perfectly allowed preferences.

    I'm not sure who conflates the terms; do you mean men think they must appear unemotional in order to appeal to women, thus become repressed, when in fact women only want someone 'stoic'? The part I don't understand is how a person is held responsible because someone else chooses to change themselves in order to appear desirable to them.

    Yeah, sorry; I'm not disinterested, but I didn't understand the argument or the comparisons you added at all. I will take everything you wrote to reflect upon.

    I'm amazed that you're still going. I would have given up on her ages ago. But your posts are good reads, so thank you.
