    Default cool quote I came across

    I'm reading "The Sex Contract" by Helen E. Fisher. She starts each chapter with a quote and thought I'd share the one I just read.

    It is assumed that the woman must wait, motionless, until she is wooed. Nay, she often does wait motionless. That is how the spider waits for the fly. But the spider spins her web. And if the fly, like my hero, shews a strength that promises to extricate him, how swiftly does she abandon her pretence of passiveness, and openly fling coil after coil about him until he is secured forever.
    - George Bernard Shaw, from the introduction to Man and Superman

    Good quote. Women love attention and they can never get enough of it. Most womens magazines are dedicated to emplifying their 'spider web' (if you like). From fashion tips, to make up tips, to work outs and so on. It is sad however as they also give out a lot of bad advice like how to play hard to get and columns written by women on how "men think". As one comedian said, It's like a guy writing a book on pregnancy and what to expect.

    Hahaha that sounds like something Bill Burr said.


    As for the quote it reminded of that movie "Enemy" where the women were sometime literally portrayed as spiders. It's a bit scary to me that women want to take the fly's freedom and have him secured forever. It's a bit grim for me.

    It also makes me think of same sex couples, and who plays what role in that metaphor.

    I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing for a woman to want to secure a man forever. That is basically what we as men want, and it feels good to be wanted in that way. Also it is in her best interest to do so.

    What I like about the analogy is that it reverses the common perception, and in doing so is far more accurate. It's like saying AFCs are flies trying to catch a spider. It doesn't make sense. It will never work. And most importantly, it's a nuisance. If you want to get the spider's attention, tangle yourself in her web, and break free...repeat. You're the tasty morsel.

    I was actually thinking of this not too long ago, wondering how I would respond to being caught studying PUA. Women are schooled very early on how to attract attention and the importance of being pretty. They are taught how to put on make up, and even how to dress sexy properly. (A girl I know told me that a woman has three sexy things to show: cleavage, legs and abs. You're only allowed to show two or you're being slutty....how crazy a rule is that?) Learning PUA is nothing more than learning how to be attractive, something women do all the time.
