So, just over 42 years ago women in Atlantic City set to the streets in protest for the liberation of women. The image is of that famous event and the bra burning that took place in the days and weeks after the protests. Now, I am a strong believer in the rights of women and can scarcely believe that we are still struggling as a race to find equality in all things. The burning, pardon the pun, question that I have is why after all of the struggles for equality and liberation are some women still clinging to the traditions of the past?
Now, before I get roasted, I just want to say that I have no problem opening the door, being a gentleman, buying **** or any other honest honor of a gentleman. My biggest grievance comes from always having to make the first move.
I now, from time to time, conduct a social experiment. I let the night progress, the passion and the tension build. I let signal after signal go by; ignoring every cue that it is time to advance the night to something more physical. I wait patiently to see if my partner will take the initiative, but I am often left disappointed. It seems, that despite protests to the contrary, men still must make the first move.
It would be nice, when in the moment, to just have a girl take charge, make the first move, and blow my mind. Now, I freely admit, that this may be just the type of girls I am attracting, but I don't think that is it...they seem to have plenty of initiative after that first move is made.
I am looking for answers, honestly. Why is it that men are still expected to make the first move? I am happy to do so, don't get me wrong, but I would just like to know the rationale
