    It has always puzzled me as a woman, that we refer to ourselves as the weaker and more vulnerable gender. We all know this is not true. Men are literally controlled by Taivas Nashim, while women do not have this problem towards Anashim at all.

    It is truly the man who is the weak vulnerable one.

    We are talking about healthy young men here. Not older men who don’t care for anything more than to just sit in 770 and learn a good maamar.

    I’m not saying men don’t have an attraction to women- they’re supposed to for a healthy relationship, but to say that controls them all, is wrong.

    You are making Bruriah’s (Rabbi Meir’s wife) mistake

    Rashi avoda Zara 18b
    when R. Meir’s wife taunted him about the familiar Rabbinic adage ‘Women are lightminded’, he replied that one day she would herself testify to its truth. When, subsequently, she was enticed by one of her husband’s disciples, she indeed proved to be too weak to resist. She then committed suicide.
