Fellas, I bring you good news. If you want a woman to like you, a good first step would be being chivalrous. This is true even in the case of feminists who will likely cry “patriarchy!” as you open a door for them.
Jokes aside, this is true according to a recent study from University of Kent and Iowa State University scientists. In this study’s abstract, the scientists inform us that “benevolent sexism” (BS… stop laughing), or well-meaning sexism, despite the “harmful consequences”, shows that these men “are perceived as willing to invest (protect, provide, and commit)” in the relationship.
The scientists note that “women find benevolent sexist [BS] men attractive, not because they are ignorant of the harmful effects, but despite being aware of them. This suggests that the desirable aspects of BS attitudes and behaviors are sufficient to overcome the perceived negative effects.”
Right, just one question. What are the “perceived negative effects”? What are the “harmful effects” of what these scientists call “benevolent sexism”? What is so wrong about being chivalrous? What harm does it cause a woman for a man to hold the door open for them? Does it make the woman believe that she is inferior to the man and needs him to hold a door open for her because she is, in some way, incapable? That’s ludicrous!
Being chivalrous has nothing to do with a man being superior to a woman. It has everything to do with a man wanting to show respect for a woman by doing something nice for her. What age do we live in that doing something nice for someone else is considered a bad thing?
Well, at least even the feminist women who consider chivalry to be sexist are still attracted to men who are chivalrous.
The Daily Mail noted that the research was collected from five study groups full of women, with the largest group comprising of 233 women and the smallest comprising 104. The women were asked to view different scenarios of interactions with men, including “men who were kind but in what is considered a sexist way, and men who treated the women as equals and didn’t offer any special treatment.” In these interactions, the women were asked to rate the men’s “warmth and attractiveness, and how willing they thought they would be to provide for, protect or commit to them.” The women also divulged their own leanings in terms of their feminism.
The scientists noted that “Our proposal is that women approve of BS attitudes and behaviors because they are taken as cues that a man is willing to invest by being protective, providing, and committed.”
And as I have said before, even feminists are attracted to this “BS” behavior. “Evidence shows that many women – even those who desire [equal] relationships – want a man to be chivalrous, by, for example, paying for dates and opening doors for them. Furthermore, the finding that high feminist women, and not only low feminist women, rated a [sexist] potential romantic partner as more attractive despite being more aware of the detrimental effects, suggests that the attraction may be a mate preference for women in general, and not just for women who endorse traditional gender roles.”
I am actually kind of surprised by a couple of things. Primarily, obviously, the fact that even feminist women are attracted to chivalrous men. But also the fact that a man paying for dates is considered “chivalrous”. I just thought it was common sense. What self-respecting man would allow his date to pay for the date, even if it’s just her portion?
Regardless, this is good news for all men out there… well, straight men, at least. This study definitely shows us that, despite it being “2018” as Leftists who are apparently cognitive enough to recognize the year will say, women are still attracted to chivalry, even women who are self-described feminists.
Again, I must call into question why chivalry could even be considered to be sexist in any way, benevolent or not, but these results are actually very favorable to all men out there. In an age when chivalry is not only dying, but being demonized as it’s being lowered into the grave, it’s fantastic news to hear that chivalry is still considered attractive, a positive thing, to all women regardless of political leaning or feminist leaning.
This is the sort of thing that coincides with a UK Daily Mail article about women being attracted to “muscles and money”. I have already written an article surrounding that particular topic, but it does show that the concept of an alpha male, and a chivalrous one at that, is still alive and well. Of course women are attracted to an alpha male. I’ve already detailed the reasons why in that other article, but it makes sense to go over them here as well.
The study mentioned that men who are chivalrous tend to show that they are more willing to invest in the relationship, such as protecting women. Likewise, men who are considered “alpha” show that they are more willing to protect women from potential harm or danger. This has been true since the dawn of time. Since the creation of mankind.
And let’s not forget the hand Hollywood and the media (including t.v.) plays in this sort of thing. In today’s Hollywood, any semblance of masculinity is barraged and attacked. It’s considered sexist to show “toxic masculinity” and it’s something they believe must be changed. Men cannot be allowed to be men, because if they are, that somehow is destructive to women. Nevermind the fact that women have more power and control when it comes to a relationship. Nevermind the fact that women are the ones who have the authority to accept or decline a man’s courtship. If men are men, that harms women.
So, they encourage men to be wussies. They encourage men to be beta males. To show, if not the opposite of masculinity, at least no masculinity at all. Because of this, and because of constant attacks against chivalry, women’s expectations are lowered when it comes to a potential romantic partner. So when said romantic partner shows chivalry and masculinity, women are attracted to it. Not because they ignore the “toxicity” of masculinity, but because they are biologically built that way by the Lord.
In the Left’s attacks against masculinity, they ignore a crucial factor: biology. Not surprising considering they ignore biology when it comes to transgender people. Masculinity, to women, will always be an attractive factor. This is true regardless of whether you call it evolution or God’s Will for the roles of men and women.
Women tend to be attracted to men who are men. Who knew?
“However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
