It's about attraction to power.

It's the same as men going cross-eyed in front of a big-breasted blonde.

It's an inherent attraction. But, not a wise decision to actually be with those people, usually.

I can only speak for myself...

But I stay as far away as I can.

I prefer men that have true goodness to them. The more, the better. =-)

I think you are a sociopath if you would put military and criminals in the same catergory. One is sacrificing themselves for your freedom, another is lounging in a cell for breaking the law.

It's biology. Women are attracted to Alpha Males. "Nice Guys" are sort of the opposite. What will a Nice Guy do when there's an Alpha Male to contend with? Most Nice Guys won't even stand up to a woman, let alone another man.

Women that find these men sexy like the power they possess. Some women feed off of that. I never liked men that throw their power around. They tend to be conceited and narcissistic. Neither one of those traits are appealing.

Men in uniform, businessmen and the like are attractive, but not men who are a$$holes. There are those out there that are military, businessmen, etc. that aren't bad. Having been in an abusive marriage for 19 years, I tend to avoid those types.

Across the board you see women swearing they don't date this type of man yet they sure have plenty of stories about all the men they dated that were like that.

Why isn't important - Knowing what you are dealing with is. It doesn't matter if a woman appears to be sexy and sweet if she only gets wet for evil ruthless men. Those women are short term material at best.

You are talking about women who are from dysfunctional environments if they think being with a narsisstic evil man is great. They think that they can fix them. Which is not an attractive behavior that balanced men want. I hated guys who thought they can throw their egos around like that and treat their women like shit.

It's all about survival of the fittest. Unfortunately those mentioned above have demonstrated their power in some way, mostly good but that power has brought them things that they have wanted, money, fame, power or simply a lifestyle where they can be their own leader and disregard rules. Whatever the case may be the fact that they were strong enough to go against the norm says alot about his confidence, excluding the criminals. I suppose women just want a strong leader who can keep her offspring safe. I tend to avoid these types but since I have tended to date the more romantic and sweet kind I have found myself often disappointed my their lack of physical or mental strength...

Why do men find degraging women by attributing stupid behavior to them a good thing to do? ;)

Women do not think that men who are evil are attractive by virtue of being evil. Granted, some women are trained by their society to be masochistic, but even that doesn't necessarily lead them towards pain.

Women AND men are attracted to power in others--it's not a gendered thing. My proof for it is first hand: Student teachers are warned during orientation sessions that they will get hit on by their students even if they are not normatively attractive because people often find power attractive--and this went for male AND female TAs.

Well I don't really think it's so many women, but when that happens, I thinks it's usually because this woman thinks she can, or wants to, try and melt his cold heart and find some warmth in him. Like she thinks she can fix him.

Because they were raised by horrible men and didn't have good male role models. They have a distorted view of how a man should treat a woman. I have lived this and have the tons of counseling behind me to back my claim. Still looking for someone to treat me with respect...at 46. :(
