Young men, listen up! Looking for a guide for what women to avoid in your search for a prospective mate? Here is a handy guide, provided by some conservative women interviewed for the American Enterprise Online. Heed these warning signs so you don't stumble into a relationship with someone who has a serious gender role fixation, and, frankly, just plain confusion.
"The modern-day loss of respect for manliness is an aberration." ("Real" men have lost respect) yet...
"How can men treat women in special, flowery ways, yet walk into a boardroom and face them as hardnosed equals? I’m not sure that’s a balance men are capable of." (Men, for all their manliness, are so stupid they can't distinguish between a business relationship and a romantic interest. Therefore they should treat all women as potential objects of romance. Now [i]there's[/i] respect!)
Look for other exciting things, like how hot Donald Rumsfeld is and the allure of your grandfather.
"Women don’t want a guy to feel their pain, they want a guy to clean the gutters." Remember, these are conservative women talking. I suppose they expect to be slapped around a bit once the gutters are cleaned. After all, a man can't handle using his muscles [i]and[/i] his brain.
For those of you who men are thinking, "Hey -- waitaminute! These gals sound like quite a catch!" I suggest you grab your club and head out. You've got a few women here with their long hair waiting to be dragged to the nearest cave.
But just remember -- conservatives are the real men. If you're man enough (meaning you won't discuss the drug problem in your past, went AWOL from your military post, lead a playboy lifestyle off your dad's money and got a nerd to plan out all your strategy) you can even be elected leader of all the manly conservatives.
