Among other uselessness, the August issue of Cosmopolitan includes an interview with movie star Megan Fox:
Women don’t have to be desperate and try so hard. Allow yourself to be strong and powerful and men will be crawling on their hands and knees.
This is advice that works well if you’re Megan Fox, or somebody who even vaguely resembles Megan Fox. While I agree that women acting “desperate” is unattractive, being “strong and powerful” is unlikely to lead to men “crawling on their hands and knees” for you.
Just think of this as a three-step plan:
1) Look like Megan Fox.
3) Men crawling on their hands and knees.
You see that Step Two is basically irrelevant to the success of the plan.
