I found an article in one of my Fitness magazines , thought it would make a good discussion.......... Some men are guilty of "pedestalization" -  the practice of putting women on pedestals and worshiping them. Alpha males call it, weakness with no self confidence, very low self esteem and an embarrassing behavior ...  Are you guilty of pedestalization?

I think it has more to do with the mutual Respect , Admiration and Love between a couple that places her/him on that pedal stall in his/her eyes from my very personal experience at least.

That's nothing but a lot of BS, put out by someone who doesn't know how to treat a woman. My husband has me on a pedestal and treats me like a queen. And he definitely DOES NOT fit your criteria. He's the most self confident man I've ever known. And his self esteem is definitely not low.

What this post was about and where it came from was several articles in Men's Fitness talking about the word Pedelization. They went on about Men who put beautiful women on pedestals, idolizing, worshiping even being their "little bitches" in some ways.
These men continuously keep doing this sort of stuff, moving from one woman to another.

SynysterGates SynysterGates OP

But only an alpha male, like yourself can truly recognize it, right?
****. If a person shows another love, and doesnt give a shit what others think, that rev, is far more brave than one who is indifferent and unexpressive.
I looked up the word, doesnt say anything about men putting women on pedestals. But one does mention people putting other people on mental pedestals.
Most of definitions were regarding statues.
But...any person can hold any other person, in high esteem. Which in many cases lifts them above others not so admired. There is nothing wrong or unmanly in that, or unwomanly.
I think if you have never cared about someone else enough to put that person above others, than you are missing out.

That is idolizing behavior. Any person can do it. And, beautiful, self absorbed men AND women happily perpetuate that behavior, for their own selfish reasons.

That word, in that context, is used to make self percieved, manly men, feel good about not treating women like a gentleman would.
And yes, i believe men and women should treat each other with respect and kindness.
