We all aspire to be better people. However, God designs, Nature endows, and hormones energize the sexes differently. But still, WADWMUFGAO, we all do what makes us feel good about ourselves. To feel good about ourselves by being a worse person, we have to be taught.
Both sexes are born with the inspiration to be better persons, and we instinctively pressure ourselves to live up to it. We don’t just hope to be a better person; our nature prompts and pushes us to keep trying. For the benefit of both individuals and society, we all need a model to follow other than ourselves. Without it we exploit our weaknesses in the mistaken belief that we know best. It has the effect of promoting and perpetuating our own shortcomings, which makes us more unacceptable to those around us.
We become better by living up to someone or something bigger than us. Our focus shifts from inside to outside ourselves. We expand our interests and weaken our self-centeredness with the added blessing of not feeling alone or deserted.
Women intuitively turn toward someone, primarily God and mate, and men rise to some things, primarily jobs and beliefs. Women anticipate need for access to wisdom; men depend more on whatever wisdom they gain in daily competition.
Women easily accept guilt, aggressively respond to threats against their children, and eagerly spot their mate’s inadequacies. Consequently, they find that living up to God’s expectations makes them a better person. He’s supremely qualified to help overcome womanly shortcomings and mate’s inadequacies.
A better male or female more easily harmonizes relationships and, when necessary, resolves domestic upheavals. With God’s help, women can become the person they instinctively envision, although they never quite get there. There’s always more to do, more a better person to become.
The sex difference is fortuitous for Americans. The choice of living up to God’s expectations requires living by a moral code. As Tocqueville states in his classic Democracy in America, “No free communities ever existed without morals; and … morals are the work of woman.” In fact, morals are of little interest to the male nature except as females make it so.
Men traditionally follow the female lead when women take advantage of two motivational forces in order to generate compatibility, and harmonize relationships. 1) Men only need a place to flop, eat, throw their things, and prepare for tomorrow’s battles. 2) Men do whatever women require in order to have convenient and frequent access to sex.
When women live within and promote morality, they lead men by example. It leads to these monumental improvements for females and children. Men are induced to also follow God, adhere to His moral code, and thus become better persons, husbands, and fathers.
Consequently, women’s natural inspiration to become better people generates the role model that induces men to follow suit. Men who live up to God and mate are far more productive and protective for females than living up to things—such as jobs that discriminate, ideologies that exploit, and beliefs that normalize mistreatment of women and children.
