tynamite's answer « Is there a female equivalent of The Game?
tynamite's avatar
Why do females need to play the Game? They are the game! Not to be disrespectful, but women can flirtatiously smile at men they are interested in, and expect them to do all the chatting up while they take a back seat. This is not to say that women can get any man they want. Seriously though, I'm going to answer the question now.

The problem with the "game", is that it revolves around men being manipulative and duplicitious towards women, so that it causes a relationship based on superiority, rather than trust. Saying no to things that's not meant, and yes to things that's not cared about, constitutes as the definition of abusive, but without the abuse. Sooner or later the woman would be treat like a spirit level, that is moved and titled to fit on various surfaces around the place; rather than a tape measurer that is free to move around the place, and wave around once still doing a desired task.

Considering how in its raw form, how The Game reinforces the role of a predatory male and a submissive female, it should be fairly evident that women are not interested in The Game. The female equivalent, being The Rules is supposedly supposed to liberate women from those ways, and let women be women; but it ironically reinforces the stereotypes that are supposed to be combated, but by doing so with even more stereotypical views. I am surprised that the books are written by women. Judging by the chapter titles, they should be written by men. On the one had it teaches women to be weary and shy of men, by not approaching them, staring at them or returning their calls. So far so good, right? ;) But on the other hand, it teaches women to be subservient and submissive, such as not telling men what to do, letting them take the lead.

If anything, The Rules, makes women easier to get, as it all it does is stop women from actively pursuing men and admitting that they like them, so if a woman is going to be giving mixed signals, it'll be taken as playing hard to get, leaving more time for people who play The Game to get their claws in. Then once the claws are in, the women start acting subservient to the men, probably because their bad experience with men and stereotypes in the past, has led them to believe that nobody else will ever love them, like their man "does".

So it's safe to say that it is not known for women to be going to dating/game coaches. Liberation FTW.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
