I happen to be a woman who was never attracted to stereotypical “masculine” guys, football players, machismo, etc. I always fell hardest for the “nerdy” guys, especially those with some strong feminine or feminist tendencies. I hear your perspective, and I don’t doubt your experience. However, speaking from experience, there are other women out there who prefer the “softer” guys.
