OK, so either most men IRL hold no entitlement complex, or hide it well enough for you not to notice.
How about the women? Did you observe any of them? Noticed anything explicitly entitled? How about something more subtle, say in relationship dynamics or conflict?
I've not noticed anything explicitly entitled amongst women, either. Nor anything subtle. Amongst the people I know and have known, there really is no sense of entitlement to wealth, power and status. They're just regular people in regular relationships (well, perhaps with a bit of kink thrown in
), doing regular or creative jobs with a focus on a healthy work/life balance.
One of my friends recently got offered a promotion and turned it down, because he loves the job he's doing now. Another one of my friends left a promising career because he wanted to focus on his music. My female friends and I would much rather be with a man who has some time for us than a man with a high-flying career working 60+ hours a week. That's just a personal preference, not an entitlement.
Power and status are irrelevant, really. At least, to us. It's all about being happy in life, and for some that might be having lots of money and having a supermodel on your arm, whilst for others, like the people I hang out with, it's doing what you love, even if it doesn't make you wealthy, and being with who you love - people who love you for who are.
