And I find myself frustrated.
The advice in the article seems patronizing to both men and women. We women shouldn't be nags or mommies or threatening. Yet, we should build them up as manly men and providers who are needed to stay alive and healthy so that they can protect and provide for their families. Men, if we are to believe this article, just can't handle the truth. And the job of the woman is to accommodate this illogical inaction. And try to cater to it. I mean I know the article is probably accurate about what will and will not motivate the majority of men, but I'm thinking of telling my very bright engineer S.O. that he and his refusal to follow up on health issues is simply an example of Darwin at work. I'll add that I somehow expected he'd be one of the fittest, not one of those doomed to die out through their own stupid (in)actions.
Think that'll work?
