Men who are "sexist" really do feel threatened by women and have problems forming a loving relationship because they constantly feel the ‘need to defend their manhood’, say scientists from Tel Aviv University in Israel. 'These men may have difficulties feeling attracted to the women they love, or loving the women to whom they are sexually attracted, leading to chronic dissatisfaction in their romantic relationships.'

The research, which was reported in the Daily Mail UK, stated that views of male dominance were associated with 'chronic dissatisfaction' and that women are more sexually attracted to forward-thinking men.

Men who believe in equality between the sexes have healthier relationships, the Daily Mail revealed, and as much as they might deny it, sexist men really do feel threatened by women.

This is according to new research by Israeli scientists who say patriarchal men often have problems forming a loving relationship, because they constantly feel the need to defend their manhood, have anxiety issues and find it difficult to trust females.
