"Women have, in men’s minds, such a low place on the social ladder of this country that it’s useless to define yourself in terms of a woman. What men need is men’s approval." —David Mamet
"While women often become a kind of currency by which men negotiate their status with other men, women are for possession, not for emulating."(Brow Before Hoes: The Guy Code Michael Kimmel)
