Competition between the sexes spells trouble in everyday life.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Pioneers in feminism may have catapulted women into the workplace and helped them earn equal wages, but they may also have created a dangerous rift between men and women, according to strategic life and relationship coach Kongit Farrell. In an exclusive interview with Stay Happily Married host Stephanie Lockwood, Farrell divulged the historical significance of the original feminist movement and provided suggestions for women dealing with the emotional baggage from what’s become known as “the battle of the sexes.”
“This is the first time that’s ever happened in the history of humanity,” said Farrell, “because it’s been a man versus man, fighting to secure resources that he… provides for his family. This is the first time there was an actual split between men and women, as they began to compete with each other for resources.”
Competition spells trouble, according to Ferrell. The natural antagonism that springs up from men and women competing in the workplace spills into everyday life – including relationships – and sometimes contributes to an eventual absolute divorce.
“The antagonism, the distrust leads to people being very reluctant to engage [in] relationships in the first place,” said Farrell. Additionally, women fall prey to common stereotypes perpetuated by ignorance – like the common ‘gold-digger’ stereotype. According to Farrell, women deemed ‘gold-diggers’ are actually just more discerning and self-preserving, similar to intelligent and selective female animals.
Farrell also discussed aligning personalities with expectations to create more harmonious interactions and revealed specific strategies to help couples transform their relationships, which aligns with other recent podcasts on StayHappilyMarried.com, including “What to Expect When You’re Expecting Stepchildren: A Step Parent’s Guide” and “Entrepreneurship and Marriage: Mixing Business with Pleasure.”
