In support of your evolution books: much as I hate to admit their existence in my gender, I have time and time again met “maintenance” women who really don’t want to work, use all their looks and wiles to get a guy with lots of money, and really just want to be looked after. These include educated, intelligent women even in good jobs. Some sort of biological imperative is still overriding emancipation in some cases.
If a woman wants to be a stay-at-home-mother to raise her kids in their formative years, I have no problem with that. It is a natural and positive desire.
But to my mind a woman that just wants a nice lifestyle, and will be a “trophy” type for some rich guy, do no work, nothing of value, spend all day in beauty salons and being a manipulative greedy lazy designer-clad label whore bitch, to my mind this selfish lazy specimen is a perversion of the stay-at-home/traditional-womans-role instinct.
Just as appalling are the men that fall for such women, and spend their hard-earned cash on them. Including buying them zippy little designer sports cars. So in some cases, these cars may be an extension of the guy’s ego.
However if the woman has earned her car herself, with a job or whatever, and likes it because it looks good, drives fast and gives her an exciting ride, go sister!
