Friday brilliance

Big props to The Navigatrix, who has a terrific post up called "The Nays Have It." An excerpt:

Men are more used to rejection because we force them to be the aggressors in relationships. Women are terrible at it because we do not let women pursue; we tell them that all men want sex all the time, so when one does not want to have sex with you, something is wrong. We tell them that men only want sex and that they do not want sex, ever; that if women want sex it makes them whores. We tell men that women do not want sex. We tell men that because women will never have sex with them, if one will, you must take it while you can. We tell women to be coy. We say no so that we can look virtuous when we want to say yes; so we will not be a whore, because he talked us into it. Sometimes we say yes because we see the hungry look in his eye and we're scared to say no.

It's great; have a read.

Thanks for the link. I've been pondering the gulf between men and women lately, and wondering how much of it is man-made. The more I read, the more I think about it, the more I suspect that most of it is. I am hopeful that things are changing, though.
