The Evolved Man



by Seattle Jon (bio)

Dan Wotherspoon, of Mormon Matters fame, takes us through the following exercise in Episode 49: Mormonism’s Messages about Motherhood (at about the 1:25 mark).

Can you describe the stereotypical man? How about aggressive, tough, courageous, analytical, strong, forceful, arrogant, intellectual, egotistical, boastful, hard-headed, masculine and dominant.

What about the stereotypical woman? How about passive, earthy, affectionate, sensitive, appreciative, sentimental, sympathetic, feminine and emotional.

Now describe the "evolved" man ... passive, earthy, affectionate, sensitive, appreciative, sentimental, sympathetic, feminine and emotional. Wait, huh? The evolved man is the stereotypical woman? Interesting.

As a man, I get praise when I exhibit evolved characteristics. Do women have evolved characteristics that are defined? If yes, what are they? If not, why not?
