Sadly, the word feminine has come to be associated with many negative traits such as physically and emotionally weak, dependent on others and shallow or vain. Personally, I do not believe feminine actually means such things, but as it is so strongly associated with women and women continue to be bogged down by such cliche and out-dated stereotypes, I'm unsure this word or the meaning behind it will ever really sway back into a more positive light.

good post

to be serious, I do think most women are intrinsicly feminine in the sense they are natural nesters,, very caring heart ,see them around babies and the faces light up

women have a much better radar of empathy, consideration, caring .... women of the family, remembers the birthdays/anniversaries, sends out the xmas cards

women will make sure you don't leave the house hungry, will ask caring/heartfelt questions. most men think grew up in the school of hard knocks, and thinks its good to be challenged and weathered (as young adults)

men are often businesslike and stoic


I remember as a kid driving down a street on my bike.....going wayyy too fast,,i took a dump and scraped my face

right in front of an older couple doing lawn work

I got up bleeding trying not to cry- hurt like hell..

the old guy hollered- "why the hell you going so fast you got what you deserved, maybe you will learn next time" while the lady didn't say a word,,,instinctively got a towel to wipe my face and invited me in to have a snack or drink and offered to walk me home..

she was nice,,,he was a prick ...this is what I mean by a caring nester
I consider that feminine....but that's also intrinsic in most women -
