Most or your statements stand vacuously true, MBM. In other words, I cannot refute most of what you said. That having been said, your rebuttal does NOT serve as the logical contradiction of what I presented. Again, I am simply speaking of what is mathematically possible, not what manifest in practice. Mathematically, promiscuity of a male or female does NOT require promiscuity of opposite gender. If 100 men have only been with one women each, in a years time, but each shared that one women, it is not the men who are promiscuous....but rather the women. Thus, this one female's promiscuity was not predicated upon the promiscuity of the men she was involved with. Now of course, in reality, men are more promiscuous than women, but that has nothing to do with what is mathematically possible. Hence, I stand by my statement that you were incorrect in alluding that female promiscuity needs male promiscuity to manifest. This is what I gleaned from your original statements, but I could have misinterpreted them.
I cannot bare witness to collective women's though processes. I am not a woman and cannot speak as an expert of what women think. However, I have bared witness to the behavior of many women and assuming that such behavior is born from free will and not force then I can only conclude that they do indeed find favor in promiscuous behavior in men. I think women like an "experienced man" who knows how to treat and please a lady in the sheets. The more promiscuous you are, the more "experienced you are", as a general rule. I don't think that many women want a "virgin" man as a husband as compared with men who would want a "virgin" wife.
Of course I am explaining away male promiscuity. In other words, I am explaining why there is a difference. The bottom line is that if women want to break down the double standard of such behavior, then they need to stop rewarding it. The double standard is born from the male's reaction to promiscuous females vs. the female's reaction to promiscuous men. Women cannot and will not ever be able to control how males view promiscuous women. Not going to happen. However, what they can control is how they view and treat promiscuous men. Instead of trying to change how males view and treat promiscuous women, leveling the double standard can be accomplished by changing the way females view and treat promiscuous men. In other words, women do not DISRESPECT a promiscous man to the same degree that a man DISRESPECT a promicouis woman. Given that the behavior is frowned upon in all religions, it should be that women learn to disrespect and stop rewarding promiscous behavior in men rather than men learning to accept and reward promicious behavior in females. The genders will continue to bahave in the manner in which the opposite sex rewards such behavior. Hence, to change behavior is to change the behaviors that we reward.
