As I am female and hetrosexual, most of my post are written using the context of ‘he’ although as many male readers understand what I write can equally apply to female sociopaths.
Today I wanted to write a post about female sociopaths.
What is the difference between male and female sociopaths?
Honestly? The most obvious answer is SOCIETY. That is the biggest difference. Historically, men were expected to pay for everything. So, for the female sociopath life was relatively easy. Which is probably why most respected pieces of work, say that there are less female sociopaths than male.
But lets look at this from a realistic point of view. From a historical point of view and from the role of men and women historically in society. Historically:
- The man went to work and supported the woman
- The man was the provider
- The woman was known to be more manipulative and emotional than the man
This is a role reversal from men in society and what the expectations are of them. Men are supposed to be the breadwinners, to keep their woman.
If you look at it like that, female sociopaths have had it relatively easy. They are protected by society, and old fashioned values and what is expected from men and women in a relationship. Imagine that for a woman, her source of supply that she needs is a roof over her head, and money?
It is relatively easy to win that from a man. Nobody would bat an eyelid at it. After all, she is doing what keeps a man happy. Offering him sex, using him for his money. Getting free food and free accommodation. She is set up for life and has a free meal ticket.
Reverse this situation. The man moves in with a woman, fakes his credentials, and ultimately the woman ends up paying for the man. This is more horrifying to society than what the female counterpart is doing. But is it really?
What do female sociopaths do?
- All sociopaths have a high sex drive – so she will use sex as a tool to lure the man in
- She will play victim to her past
- She will be looking for a rescuer (to pay for her)
- She will offer a bright and amazing future to her male counterpart
The sad truth is, both parties can be happy. A man sees it as his role to provide for his partner, or at least many have been brain trained historically that this is the right thing to do. The gaslighting, can just be viewed as ‘female manipulation’. Men are grateful to have a woman that constantly demands sex. And the male counterpart feels that he has a ‘trophy wife’ on his arm. After all they are so charismatic, and get on with everyone, so popular, everyone else wants her….. men love to have something which is seen as ‘special’, something that other people want.
So, where does it all go wrong, with the female counterpart, and why is not reported as much?
It goes wrong when the female counterpart runs off with someone else. Or after she has the children kicks the man out, keeping the house and children and everything in the house. If she is really lucky if she has done her homework well, she will also get maintenance payments from the man.
But nobody objects to this, after all this is what the man is supposed to do?
This is the main difference between male and female sociopaths. Society is what makes it different. Expectations within society of the male and female role. Of seeing the male as the provider, and the woman as nurturer, after all, we know that sociopaths can be very charismatic. And can play the role of ’nurturer’ and ‘carer’ very well indeed.
The male feels that he has nobody to talk to about this. After all. He has been played, financially it has cost him a lot. And his ‘perfect woman’ is now off doing her own thing. Society encourages this.
If the male is upset and hurt, the female sociopath will use this against the male, he is the bitter ex. He should get over it.
It is more shocking when a woman has been conned by a male sociopath, as society sees it as unnatural. Afterall the man should be paying for the woman, treating her as a princess.
The female sociopath relies heavily on sex as a seduction and offering the trophy wife status to the male. Which males, wanting to impress buy….
There is little difference between the male and female types. This is why I write about sociopaths in general, and for ease of writing I use the word he. It is simply easier to write.
What do you think? Are there any males reading this? Do you agree with this? Or am I totally wrong?
