How does a woman "get a guy to committment" and how is that domineering, exactly? Can you give an example of something that a girlfriend has done to you?

Yeah, I need a source here, too. What exactly do you mean, OP? I can only think of one girlfriend out of dozens who wanted to control me. I dumped her-- Problem solved! This isn't something I generally encounter with women I date, so I'm not sure how your experience has been so different.

Until then, you will get heat from all the women defenders and equal rights groups.
That's my entire point. These days men are expected to submit and most do. They tell themselves they are 50/50 but in reality they have little say in their relationships and even less say when it comes to how their woman behaves.

Repeating the same thing over and over doesn't make it any more true. Please tell us, specifically, how men are expected to submit to women?

I agree. And in what ways are men supposed to have a say in how their women behave?

They have control and a say in their relationship unless they signed away their freewill.

And why should they have a say how "their woman" behaves? He doesn't own her. If he doesn't like the way she acts he is 100% free to talk to her about it, and if it doesn't change (and if he is unreasonable, I hope she doesnt' change) to leave the relationship. He has complete control of HIS actions.

I'm a woman but I side eye when a girl has to defend how his boyfriend or husband is not a henpecked one. I know a woman who always says his husband is not a henpecked husband and that he does what he wants and that at home he does what he is good at and she does the rest. When you read how she explained it you can see he does only what she let him to do. She might say "he is responsible of the technology and iron the clothes and I do the cleaning" then she'll tell you that she hates ironing the clothes and she is horrible with technology so at the end of the day she is a dominant woman who only let her husband do what she doesn't want to do. And the same happen when she explains why her husband don't go to some places when she doesn't go or why he can't do anything without her permission.

I'm all down for powerful and woman who have a word in their relationships but there are women that treat their men like clowns.

I was just saying to the only way a guy will summit to a woman is to commit to her it not a bad thing the the only example when a guy will summit to her. It is not domineering in anyway but a guy still has the fainal say if he wants to be with her no one has a gun to a guys head.

I think the OP is a closet masochist, in the BDSM sense. He wants a woman to dominate him and force him to submit to her every whim. He is hoping to convince himself that all relationships work that way.

Haha, maybe. If they did though there wouldn't be so many dominatrix's making a good living.
