Sherazade didn’t wait for a prince – she saw an opportunity that there was an evil king who could not find a wife because he kept killing his wives.Her thinking: I am not a daughter an important king, so I am at a disadvantage in my goal of being hired for the job “princess.” So, I will go find a bargain opportunity: a crazy king where there is an opening of the position ‘princess” – and use my wits to not get killed, secure the job, and tame the man into something I like Sherezade saw it as risky challenge that she could win to become queen.
What second wave radical feminism teaches about patriarchy being the problem is out-dated.
A good girl knows how to shoot a gun and defend her family if an intruder attacks her family home.
Even Sherezade of the Arabian knights was a typical heroine decided herself to be princess. She had the same traits like that lawyer George Clooney the eternal American bachelor got quickly engaged to.
The theory: Medieval Europe was a history filled with large wars that took out men, especially considering the lack of medicine and spread of disease in the battlefield. So to have a man was very prestigious in immediate post war Russia.
This is even more visible and prevalent in Russia which is more misogynistic. He could be old, a veteran, missing an arm and a leg, but he was a man! Misogyny is a result of supply of women exceeding demand. That meant that women who prior to the war would hold dear to their virginity would quickly lose it to the first man who would allow her to go out with him.
