Woman-Positive blogging

In general, men and women are very different, and we get along better when we honor the differences. There's too much woman-hating in the manosphere, and too much man-hating by the feminista-bloggers.

Let's raise a glass and drink a toast: "Vive la difference!"

Roosh writes about the sweet girls in Poland--
girls who want to care for me, cook for me, and do everything they can to make me proud that they’re on my arm? You can’t master game in a country where the women are worth it, because you’ll find a sweet girlfriend before you get to that high level.

If I ever go back to Poland, it has to be when I’m older, when I’m done banging just to bang. A big part of respecting the game is respecting the power it has over women, and not purposefully hurting a girl who obviously doesn’t deserve it.

And the Private Man proposes a list of The strengths of femininity:
Pleasantness in the face of rudeness
Happiness in the face of sorrow
Willingness to forgive
Desire to nurture and not control
Discretion despite anger
Modesty when others insist on exposure
Kindness in the face of belligerence

* The power to organize, communicate and network. Women know how to work better in groups, and generally network better (although not always as effectively) than men. Good communication and organizational skills are a hallmark of femininity. That bugs the crap out of a lot of us, but in our modern world that skill has allowed many women to flourish by developing it into a marketable skill. It has often frequently been used on our behalf, because they also have an . . .

* Awareness of social nuance and position and ability to interpret subtle social cues. Traditionally women have been their husband’s interpreters, advisers and interface socially on their behalf. A woman will often understand subtle social nuances hinting towards incipient changes in the social hierarchy he’s involved in. She will often use this perspective to further her own goals — which usually revolve around security — but in the case of a good marriage that means establishing and maintaining good social position for her husband.

* Protective of offspring. A profound feminine virtue is the ability to put the needs and welfare of their offspring above her own needs and welfare. There are, of course, plenty of women who have abandoned this, or have used it as a base excuse for hypergamy, but it has also gotten women and children out of abusive circumstances . . . and it ultimately serves to preserve the species.

* Ability to entertain. This has been a traditional aspect of femininity in all human cultures throughout all human history. Women have always been expected to develop the ability to present themselves in a pleasing manner and entertain and put others at ease in social situations. Indeed, our civilization’s cultural life wouldn’t extend beyond beer-and-chips football games if it wasn’t for the feminine impulse to entertain.

* Ability to recognize. When a woman observes positive behavior, it is a feminine virtue to call it out for praise in a respectful manner. That goes from posting macaroni pictures from her kindergartner on the refrigerator to promoting her husband’s virtues in public to acknowledging truly heroic or impressive feats. Men spend an awful lot of time trying to attract female attention. It is a virtue, therefore, when she grants it in a gracious manner.

* Ability to convince and manipulate. Yes, we hate this one. It is, nonetheless, a feminine strength, perhaps their greatest. Women can be adept negotiators and uncanny salesmen. The ability to allure, to flirt, to subtly direct and steer a conversation has frequently driven us mad, but it has also worked on our behalf. The secret is to make them swear only to use their powers for good.
