Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
She acted "traditionally" in some ways, but her, and other asian women I've known, can be very assertive and controlling when a man enters or acts inside her "domain". With my deployment rates at the time, no way could I have married a "submissive" who was dependent. Many of those cultures, the women are "submissive" only because the males can legally beat the **** out of them otherwise, without that threat, they are no more submissive on average than any other women.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
Again, all politically correct assertions to the contrary aside, I have seen absolutely no evidence whatsoever to suggest that a relationship dynamic favoring a more interpersonally assertive male and a somewhat less interperssonally assertive female is not the norm under most circumstances.
As S&M's example attests, even very aggressive women tend to prefer men who are at least equal in assertiveness to themselves, and often times even more so.
The same simply cannot be said of most men.
It is what it is, and I don't see any reason to quibble around "P.C." sensibilities on the issue.
