“They start to tear you down,” she added, “and then you’re back to square one. And it’s so fucked up and unfair, because I feel like a lot of men who truly think they want a strong woman actually don’t know how to handle it and … what it means for their own identity.”
When Ponton added that some males are “intimidated” by “powerful women” and she or he wasn’t positive why, Ratajkowski stated they most likely don’t know why both. Ratajkowski, who reportedly dated Davidson for about two months, recommended power-centric confusion units in.

“It’s one of the reasons that I understand dating women,” Ratajkowski responded. “Because yeah, there might be competition, there might be whatever, but like, there’s respect that doesn’t feel like somebody’s taking something away from someone else.”
