Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
Frankly, if you're willing to respect yourself, and stand by your values, you shouldn't need to worry about anyone else disrespecting you or forcing you to change what you believe anyway.
Lord knows I'm not about to change my allegedly "cave man" ways simply to appease some pushy female who majored in "women's studies" in college. There's really no reason why any other man should have to do so either.
Rolling over and "playing dead" is always a personal choice. Claiming that someone else forced you into it is nothing more than a convenient excuse.

You know I am just thankful to find a thread on this forum that is actually having a discussion between male and female unions instead of same sex.
I can also understand why a number of males look to Asians and other women for a mate. Many American women no longer see the male as substantial in in any relationship. Just look at the single mother stats to figure that one out. Unfortunately for the female race she is crashing and burning at proving little to no success on that one. As I read these posts, I find myself being ever more grateful for my mate. He is an all American male and I am an all American female. We have been together for multiple decades. Raised children who are functioning well in society. I walk beside my mate. We are equals. He brings things to our relationship that I can't. And I do the same. I call him the head of house, and I am the heart. Each has a distinctive roll to play. And both are just as equal in need if you are wishing to achieve balance.

*yawn* More whining from the strike-out crew, blaming their own issues with getting a date and keeping a mate on some evil feminist conspiracy.
The fact is, America is far less feminist and less equal than many of the countries you folks would prefer to "get your women" from. I don't think any of you even know what progressive gender dynamics are, if you think for one second that America qualifies in the grand scheme of developed nations.
It's also kind of hysterical that you fail to see that talking about women as though they were various flavors of soup and whining like children might be part of the reason you're having a hard time finding a date.
Yeah, some chick in a magazine in a backwater sinkhole of a country will probably marry you. But trust me, and trust the many men who've been burned by them, it isn't because of her "traditional values." It's because her life sucks and you're her ticket out. This goes both ways -- men are the predators in some other countries in Europe, tricking vulnerable Eastern block women with free movement in the EU.
I'm sure I'll be accused by people who know better of all the usual -- the archetype of the man-hating feminazi psycho -- despite my endless hours and tens of thousands of words dedicated to discussing gender issues going both ways.
But fine with me. I don't really concern myself with impressing the furious projecting type.
