Are Men Threatened By Successful Women?

I'm not saying all guys but it seems to me that some men are a little uncomfortable with us having power. Like it's an insult to their manly stature that their girlfriend is more successful than them. I suppose that's their hunter gatherer, me Tarzan you Jane instinct raring it's ugly head.

It's about time these guys got used to it. We didn't campaign for feminism just for an excuse to burn our bras. Nope, we wanted a slice of the action too.

Those women back in the day, just got sick of being chained to the sink and baking tarts all day like Fanny Cradock. Speaking of Fanny, she might well be the reason for this revolution, i mean who wants to end up looking like that, bless her cotton socks. It looks like she stole those eyebrows from Coco The Clown.

Anyway back to my point. It seems to be a common misconception that every woman who has a high flying career must be a domineering, bossy, hard faced android. I mean that's the way movies portray us, think The Devil Wears Prada and the ginger one from SATC. As if we are all just trying to act like men with breasts. It's just not true. Just because we can be play the Boss doesn't mean we aren't still women.

What do you think? Are some men really threatened by us career girls?

    I think so.. At times I think they feel like they are unwanted and can't be the protector...other times they are just jealous

    Well, perhaps women should consider that there needs to be a balance to male/female relationships. If YOU were with a man who WANTED to stay home to cook, clean and raise the kids while YOU went to work, fixed the car and got up when there was a bump in the night, how ATTRACTED would you be to this guy??... If you cook dinner and your husband didnt eat your food and said "I can cook for myself", you'd feel rejected.

    The problem is that our culture is teaching women to NOT NEED men. Do you want to be with a man who, not only didnt need you, but was proud of not needing you and didnt understand why you didnt like it?

    @Anonymous I would love a guy who helped out with the housework. I understand what you are trying to say and i agree that there should be equality in relationships. Thanks for sharing your opinion.
