Women can emasculate men without even realizing it. Here are ten ways you might be emasculating men, and why it drives men away.
What does ’emasculate men’ mean? Dictionary.com defines emasculation as castration, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. I’m referring to The Urban Dictionary definition of emasculation: “…the removal of a male ego, pride, empowerment.”
Women are often unaware when they do this. They wonder why men get so angry, defensive, or shut down. A common example of emasculation is when a man is driving with his significant other. He turns left to get on the highway, and she says, “You’re going the wrong way. The back roads are faster.” She’s making him wrong and herself right, and this leads to a big fight. “But, I was just trying to help”, she says. By trying to help, she’s subconsciously trying to control him. He feels emasculated, because he now believes he can’t do anything right in her eyes. This can lead to the fracturing of many relationships.
