    honestly, when my husband is commanding like that, i feel like he *expects* me to submissively follow along, which makes me feel unsexy and downright angry. that's why i say that this advice might backfire on some, because not every woman subconsciously prefers to submit.
    I just meant that the nice thing about not being hitched is that, if he is acting like a jerk, you can show him the door and move on. I find as I'm getting older, I'm getting a lower threshold for BS. I don't have to put up with crap so I don't.

    Married Man Sex Life
    This guy has a little better management of the Alpha/Beta characteristics. I'm never really offended by the whole male dominance thing because boys will be boys and if him beating on his chest and being a little gruff means he'll chop some wood and give me good lovin' then I can't complain. I'm also a feminists nightmare. I laugh at sexist jokes (and tell a few), I want to be the perfect housewife one day and I don't think I should have different or -more- rights in the workplace because I'm a girl. In fact, I find it kind of insulting that I would be given an opportunity just because I'm a female. I'd rather earn it. I know, I know, the glass ceiling. Trust me, I've hit it. I work in a male dominated industry. But if you can't beat 'em, join them, then be better at what you do and show them up. All that being said, I realize I'm shooting my mouth off in a man thread that I honestly promised myself I was going to stay out of, but I'm addicted to this guys blog, he makes some awesome points and I feel like all the womenz commenting on having their self esteem lowered by other "Alpha Blogs" should give it a looksee.

    Now!

    ah, i see, that could be a perk (and being able to flirt and then act on it without hurting another person would be another perk). otoh, there have been times that i would have booted him (and i'm sure he could say the same for me) if it had been an easy thing to do. highs and lows, and all that jazz.

    i've actually already read that blog, and i think it's more of the same. i'm really not a "feminist" in the stereotypical view. i'm a sah mom to three kids and married to a guy who has changed diapers as often as he has washed dishes (between the 3 kids, he's probably changed 15 diapers max). i'm not bothered by sexist jokes, and i don't believe that affirmative action has much of a place in most establishments anymore. one of the reasons i home school my kids is that i believe the public schools are set up in a way that stacks the cards against boys. i just truly believe in this silly, unattainable ideal called "equality," which means that we try to set aside our preconceived notions based on race or gender to see what a person is truly capable of. that's all. i expect that my husband sees me as his equal match. who has time for useless people, ya know? anyway, i'm just saying that this sort of mentality may not work for every broad, and it may not work in the LONG TERM. it seems like kind of a shallow way to relate to your SO.

    how?

    *Edit*
    yeah, on second glance, that blog is a little better because it's more about balance. he's not claiming that the "manly" thing to do is to tell your wife how it's going to be, and there aren't as many denigrating comments such as this one:
    Alpha husband = oxymoron.

    Married men are nothing more than wimps in beta serfdom.

    Sure you may pass your wife’s shit tests with flying colors. You may not be a doormat. So what? That’s nothing to brag about. You’re still stuck with one (rapidly deteriorating) pussy that you cannot discard without dire consequences to yourself.

    If you were a true alpha, you would not have married in the first place. You would not have proposed, signed the contract or let her live with you under the same roof.
    i can get behind a man who chooses to be assertive and confident in his relationship. i can get behind a man who chooses to leave his SO because she treats him like a doormat. but that's not what's going on in the comments, which are completely uncorrected by the author who makes a lot of snide remarks on other comments in defense of women.

    My husband knows that if he cheats, i get to remove a body part of my choice.
    Not that i don't trust him, I know he never would. We're pretty open about sex drives and libido - hell, he watches porn in front of me and masturbates. I don't care, as sometimes i'm just tired or not in the mood. I do the same on occasion We both have fun perving on other people in public and we're all over each other most of the time...

    my husband and i check out other people. if i'm feeling self conscious, i tell him and we find something else to talk about. if i'm feeling unlovely, i tell him (instead of passive-aggressively fishing for compliments). if he wants to help me feel lovely, he does what he can. if he's not up for it, then he doesn't. i just don't see how telling guys to play head games is any better than justifying girls' head games. be confident and loving, that's sexy.

    Exactly. The 'remove a body part' thing is a running joke with us, because someone asked me how i could 'trust' my husband around all the models i work with. He's not a dog in heat, jeez. For one, i'm confident enough and trust him enough that it's not on my mind. There's even a lot of models that walk around stark naked or halfway there right in front of us (as they're models, it's often easier during costume edits and they're used to it etc) and no-one cares
    He's entirely used to it, and so am i

    Unfortunately, most men are not self-actualized enough to respond to anything but genetic programming. THAT’S why they don’t stay single. Any man, no matter how self-actualized or how well-versed in the skills presented in this article will end up married to a woman who knows what she is doing.

    You can TRY to wear the pants, but if you’ve married a woman who is more of a man than you are, it’s a losing proposition. You’re right….she won’t respect you. Go on and try to win that one. Make sure you are a “real man” that a woman can admire before you try on these tricks.

    Personally, I think it is FIRST and foremost the woman’s job to make sure the relationship works. Modern relationships don’t work because the woman is self-absorbed. If the woman is smart enough to marry a better man than her and to NOT go around being his mom, the relationship will work. Men are simple, with simple genetic programming that has not changed in any essential way for millions of years. (Read up on some genetic science. I suggest “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” by Carl Sagn and Ann Duryan. )

    Women have become like men and need to remember the feminine arts. Not the subservient ones, but the ones that complement a man’s strength and problem solving prediposition. These are being virtuous, patient, playful, nurturing, and many other traits that women have forgotten because they are too busy being men.

    Men, send your women to goddesstryarts.com where they will learn to stop being your rival and learn to be a complement to you. Men haven’t changed and don’t need to be fixed. Women need to learn how to get their needs met in their romantic relationships without nagging and smothering. They need to remember the ancient ways where male and female energy balance each other. Women will NOT lose what they’ve gained through the feminists movement and men will be much happier. DON’T tell her she needs to be fixed. Be sly…let her “find” this information that will teach her how to “fix” her man and get her needs met. She’ll learn to take responsibility for her part in the relationship in a way that makes you both much happier.

    Hot debate. What do you think?
