Men Will Be Intimidated (Kimora Lee Talks Men Being Intimidated)

Kimora Lee recently spoke to UK's Daily Mail on several topic, including men being intimidated by women.

"Well, I think they are sometimes [intimidated], but men are intimidated by a lot of things, you know, such as jobs and bit of determination. They have a lot of insecurities about who we are, what we have, what we look like, what we’ve accomplished and what we’re capable of because we’re fabulous and capable of doing so much and juggling so much every day.[...]People might be mad I’m saying this, but [men] do have a lot of hang-ups. But that shouldn’t deter you ladies from being great! You don’t have to dumb down – you just have to find a clever, good, secure man. I’ve found a couple – I’ve been lucky – but it’s probably hard for everybody to find that true love of a good man."

At some point after getting my college degree, starting to make real money, and finally be able to afford an apartment that didn't involve having a roommate go half on the rent I realized men might be intimidated.

Part of this realization involved still knowing men who were broke and living with their parents. Some of them didn't even have their own car or phone. Now how the Hell do we talk if he don't have a number to give me?   Some of it also involved meeting men whose goals didn't stretch past 5 miles of where they already were. I, on the other hand, would talk about my dreams of moving and leave them speechless. Oops! Basically meeting men that have less than me has made me realize that they will be intimidated. Well, there was one similar occurrence where I ruined any chances of a man trying to approach me one night.

It was a Saturday night. This particular club was lame and not crowded at all. However, I was willing to make the best of it. Men were looking. Some spoke. Then at some point one of my songs came on. I had to dance. I had to do more than dance. I was feeling myself a lot. I think it was that song "Make It Rain" so I pulled some money out of my purse. Then I threw the money at myself. Then men around were laughing and shocked at the same time. Yeah, this girl (me) had enough nerve to pull out my own money and toss it at myself. A couple of them did speak after that. No one asked for my number. They probably thought they couldn't handle me.

So men will be intimidated, but sometimes we can do things to intimidate them too.
