. . .Just What is She Thinking?

MEMORY QUIZ
Do you remember that in the 70’s, when women started taking a look at themselves and then standing for themselves on the job, in the home, and anywhere else they wanted to go.

“Sex objects, no more!” was the new motto that they cried to all who would hear them and the thing was, it was us men that they aimed this sharp motto at not to hurt us, but to teach us.

Teach us, most of you men say? Yes, teach us. I know what you guys fear. You fear that your wife or girlfriend just might possess an I.Q. that can make the brightest male college professor ashamed of himself. But please, guys. I want to share the one thing that I have learned over the years. And if you will lay-down your male ego macho-mania, you will agree with me.

She is thinking about War and Peace

I AM COMPLETELY-SERIOUS

To me, there is nothing hotter, sexier, or more-attractive than a woman who shares her wisdom and opinions. I love to listen to an intelligent woman talk. Wake up, men. Intelligence is hot. Intelligence in a woman does NOT mean she is out to put you in her shadow. All she really wants is for you to consider her as your equal and respect her. These things are NOT as hard to do as you think once you get the male pride out of the way.

I said all of that to say this: “Have you ever sat down somewhere, say in a shopping mall, and when a lovely woman walks by or sits on an opposite bench, you just focus for few minutes on what she is thinking? You might be surprised to know what this fashion-plate lady has on her mind.

So I am entitling this piece . . .

Just What is She Thinking?

(Here is a brief collection of things that intelligent, lovely woman might be thinking about)

  • “Did I give my new client the best deal on cars that I possibly could?”
  • “I think that the next time that “Dewey Stanson,” starts with his sexual-based talk, I will take him and the company to court.”
  • “Naah, I do not need a lawyer. I can handle this case all by myself.”
  • “Why does that guy on the bench in front of me keep staring at me?”
  • “Oh, no. Here comes a filthy-mouth jock. Wait a minute! What is that man on the bench doing? Awww, how nice—telling the foul-mouthed jerk that he cannot tolerate cursing.”
  • “Am I unattractive or what? That guy on the bench has not looked at me with appreciation since I sat down here.”
  • “Now to read the stock reports for today. Ahhh, some peaceful stories instead of that nauseating Hollywood garbage. I couldn't care less if Charlie Sheen is working to straighten-up.”
  • “Wish that lady standing at the window of Sears would stop checking her make-up. Did I do that when I was 18?”
  • “Uh, oh! Here she comes. Now I bet that guy on the bench who scolded the “sewer mouth” will really get an eyeful of this girl wearing three layers of eye make-up.”
  • “Whattttt? He just looked away when she pranced by him. I wonder what problem he has with females?”
  • “Goodie. AT&T is up two points; General Motors is down three points. Yes! Microsoft is up four points. That means “I” go to Aspen for vacation this winter.”
  • “Who put that poster in that dress shop window saying, “Remember to Give to The Hunger Fund for Third World Countries? I wonder how I would fare if I did some volunteer work in these countries?”
  • “Seriously? The man still hasn’t noticed that I am wearing my best outfit today. Is he in a trance?”
  • “What a foolish thought, going over to say hello to him. Whatttt? I am not a slut! He is, uh, kinda good-looking, and . . .whattt? I should not be thinking this stuff. I have worked hard to get where I am, vice-president of one of the biggest stock investment firms in the city. Listen to me sounding like a television commercial!”
  • “Dinner with him, JUST dinner might be fun. What is the matter with me? I am not desperate for male company.”
  • “Ahhh, what’s the harm? Why am I nervous, I met hundreds of men everyday. I am not a school girl. I am an empowered, independent woman. Okay. I am going . . .I am going . . .”
  • “What is he thinking, is he . . .standing up? For me? Can you say ‘old-fashioned?”
  • “Think I’ll sit down and get to know him.”

What do you think now, guys?

The truth about feminism as it is with all "isms" is not everyone in the group shares all of the beliefs of the group's vocal leadership.

Some women want to be known as "sex symbols". Lots of young women out there want to be the next Kim Kardashian and parlay a sex tape to fame and riches. There will always be another group of women who plan to use their youth and beauty to attract rich men to take care of them.

Men have essentially three potential groups of women to deal with. There are those women who want to hang onto the tradition of being placed on a pedestal and seen as being "special" while being courted the old fashioned way ala Prince Charming or a Knight on a white horse. Another group of women are happy with being a "sugar baby"/gold digger, or "trophy wife" accepting the fact that they are exchanging their beauty for financial perks and a higher living standard. Lastly you have women who out to prove they are "equal" to men in every facet of life. In fact their motto is: "I don't NEED a man!"

Of the three groups the last one seems to be the most upset with women who are not in lockstep with their agenda. The first group is also unhappy because they're likely prefer having men see them as specials and not equals. Oftentimes they are religious and want the man to be "the head" of the relationship or household.

Some the "traditionalists" blame the feminist and the "sugar babies" for their difficulty in finding a good man. While the feminist is not known for using her sexuality to get what she wants she is however of the belief she is entitled to have the sexual behaviors of any man and shouldn't be judged for doing so. Therefore it's not uncommon for a feminist to have sex as quickly as the "sugar baby". This drives the traditional and religious women insane. They believe the sexual revolution ruined things for them! There is lots of infighting and judging taking place between women and the message they want to get across to men. The biggest problem with all three groups is they don't believe (life is a personal journey).

There can be no equality as long as they're not willing to accept each woman has the right to live her life as she pleases! Freedom & equality should encourage individuality.

dashingscorpio, I am saddened that you have only encountered three types of women. We can be pretty catty, though, and are very good at putting down other women who do not belong to our cliques.

Ken, #4 was the first thing I thought of when you introduced the list... so happy you realized that would be one of many things going through our minds in an instance.

If a guy was sitting on the bench across from me and looked at me without ogling, told another guy not to cuss, and didn't drool over every sexy woman who walked by, I hope I'd be brave enough to strike up a conversation with him. At least at first glance, I'd think he's a real gentleman.

Sheilamyers,

There are some guys like the one you are talking about still around. And yes, you would not need to sit back, for I perceive you as one strong woman with lots of self-esteem and confidence.

Thanks for the nice comment.

Dear friend, Jodah,

Thank you for the warm comment, but why is the ads on your hub disabled if you post photos of pretty girls with clothes on?

Mysteries abound. Thanks and I appreciate it.

In trying to keep up with my "follows," Ken, I read this one with delight.

It's true women have brains; we also come packaged with emotions, something many men have trouble understanding, let alone know how to deal with crucial upsets.

It's also true some women simply love their sexuality and enjoy the power their looks and demeanor have over some men.

This hub has a great message for the appropriate male audience (and even ladies). Voted Useful and Funny.

Keep writing and blessings! ***

Marie,

Wow, what a fantastic and enduring comment. Your comments make interesting words for life, Marie. I really appreciate you so much.

If men knew how to listen, then love, a woman, we would not have as much divorce, let alone abuse.

I try to listen when any woman is talking to me. I first ask, "are you sure you are talking to me?" For many times, it is the guy behind me whom they are speaking to.

I will do my best to keep writing. And you are a blessing too.

Hmm Kevin. I wish I knew, I think a reader must have complained. One of my limericks was about a fellow falling in love with a girl with a rather large bottom. The photo was of a girl with a large butt..the first one in a thong. When ads were cancelled I changed it to a girl fully clothed but still with a large bottom and HP told me it still wasn't suitable. Another was a stylised drawing of a naked female form side on and same thing happened. Even a hint of semi-nudity or especially a nipple is a no no for my hubs.....

Jodah,

Early on in my first few months of my HP membership, I posted a series of girls from colleges around the country who were dressed in their cheerleader uniforms. Got that? Well my hub was flagged and I was told the same thing as you--not appropriate and I was to change the photos. Again, I appealed to HP to look at the photos again. No dice.

There was NO semi or any nudity. Just some rather nice legs. That is IT.

So do not feel singled-out.

It is a journey of mazes and crazes, my friend.

Great article. I think that with some women you can tell almost what their thinking by looking right at their eyes and facial expressions, there are the cold faces which you never know about. I don't know if anyone could tell what I was ever thinking but my hubby now knows me so well he just takes one look and knows what I'm going to say. Passing this on.

I have never met you, but I wager that you are a very nice lady without a compeitive or mean bone in your body.

But you are right. Some people's eyes are like open books that tell their life's story.

I admire your comment. And you as a friend and follower.

Some women dress for attention, like the ones in your hub. Surely they know what attention they are getting and it probably is the kind they want. That's not to say that a smart business woman needs to dress in man's suit, either. But I do believe that if a woman wants to be taken seriously, she needs to dress appropriately. I did catch the note of satire in your voice, so maybe there is hope for man, yet! lol


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 2 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Dear Ann1Az2,

You are so right. Sensibility goes a long way. But some guys and girls simply overdo it--even in a job interview when a girl wears a short skirt and well, you know. And a guy overdoes his loyalty act. It sickens me.

Just be yourself. What ever happened to this staple?

Thanks for your kind remark my dear friend.

That was impressive Kenneth. I liked the women standing up for themselves, I totally agree with that. The video at the end was both funny and real gone. I have seen people tell-off their bosses before but never like that! I voted up, shared and tweeted it.

Thank you. And I must say that you are one cool dude and I admire you for your comment.

I wrote this with much-care and awareness for I did not want ANY woman to think this was comedy.

Gotta say, I have deeply mixed feelings about this Hub. I agree with your point, and I think it's well-expressed and pretty funny, but it's accompanied by so many pics where the focus is clearly on the boobies and not on the mind (often we can't even see the face), which are clearly meant to be ogled and to draw clicks to your Hub. Hard to believe this is advancing your stated goal of encouraging men to respect and appreciate women.

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you so much for not being harsh with me about this hub. I respect you for your honesty and your opinion as well. But may you and I honestly talk for a moment?

I do not want to argue. I know in my heart that I did NOT "plant" as the hubber term goes, girly photos to get more clicks on this hub. Some time ago, a female hubber suggested that when I wrote about women-related topics, to dress-up my hubs with women photos. So being the trusting soul that I am, I did. And this is the result.

I apologize to you if the photographic part of my hub offended you.

And I agree with what you said about you doubted that this helped to advance women in the world.

Okay. For that, I am also sorry.

Last Friday, I received two very rube comments on two comedy-based hubs and I did the right thing and apologized to the upset party. But two apologies is enough.

My materials is a mixture of comedy and truth as I see it. Not everyone on HP.

So that is the truth. I hope you will like some of my new offerings.

(Still) Your Friend for Life,

Kenneth

Ah. You are such a gentleman.

I wouldn't say I was offended, it was more of an eye-roll, "men!" kind of thing.

I believe you that you are a trusting soul and maybe you just searched for "photos of pretty women" and posted them, without realizing how it made your Hub look. I believe this because of the beautiful stuff you wrote about your daughter.

As for captions ... For a couple of those ladies, I would suggest what they are thinking is, "This is so frustrating! Why can't I find a dress that fits me on the bottom AND on the top? When will designers ever learn?"

... or maybe not ...

Dear Jennifer . . ."My sincere thanks to you for above comment that touched my heart. I would NEVER do or write anything to hurt or offend you or any of the ladies who are in my following. I am honest with you. Fact is, I think you are right about my searching for 'pretty girls,' and with the topic being female-based, I just posted them."

"Loved the caption. Wish I had written that when I wrote the hub. Right now, re-editing does not appeal to me. Thank you, Jennifer, for the sweet remark about my daughter."

Your Friend for Life,

Kenneth
