Some of us "real men" also like the sight of strong women who exhibit tenacity, determination and self discipline; be it in business, personal life, or in this case, martial arts.
Some men do feel emasculated by this phenomenon, making them "uncomfortable" so to speak. Usually, this dissipates around puberty or early adulthood, when the "man" develops a stronger sense of self worth and subsequently lets go of long held, albeit simple minded beliefs/hangups.
Out of curiosity PGerm, is your favorite song of all time "Something in the Way" by Nirvana?
