I was anticipating that someone would be offended, when I was reading Rubicon's post--yes, there it is.
I knew some of these women personally! When Rubicon mentioned they were less attractive, I didn't agree, because a few of them were quite pretty. They were at least well-maintained and fastidious about their appearance. I was roommates with one. They had enough dates, but they did have certain personality traits that were not popular with the men. They all had the common traits of being overly competitive with the men, and overly ambitious for themselves. I would define the ones I knew as Narcissistic. They thought they were superior to others, and superior to who they really were. For example, some of them acted as though they were the only women in the world to get a Master's degree--and made too big a deal about it. They felt spiritually superior, and refused to date anyone who tried to kiss them before the 5th date. They had certain rules that had to be followed. They wanted to dominate and control their relationships. I got along with them, because I was submissive, back then, and willing to be on the sidelines. Everything had to be about THEM. Even back then, they wanted to marry only the greatest of Mormon me--not just your average bishop. What I offered them was support. I also came from a prominent GA family, with money. I was friendly, and set them up on a lot of dates--because they demanded that of me. Like, I OWED them to set them up, because I didn't deserve all these boyfriends. They deserved the attention, not me. Know what I mean? Very competitive. Very ambitious. The men liked them at first, but after going out with them a few times--not so much.
These women were aggressive and manipulative, in getting what they wanted. I admit, I did admire them! They would put on a ploy of being humble, spiritual, soft-spoken, even shy, but they were the opposite. I suppose men of that generation thought they were not "feminine" enough. They weren't lesbians; in face, our other friends and I thought they were too obsessed with pursuing men. They wouldn't go skiing, but wore the fashionable ski outfits. They wouldn't go in the water at beach parties, for fear of messing up their hair. They were too obsessed with appearance. I'm talking about 5 virgins. I want to keep everything anonymous, because I'm still loyal. Two are married to major and minor GA's. One almost married one. Five of them went on dates with GA's. There really is such a group of women.
My influential GA relative died and was forgotten. I married a "nobody" from BYU, who later left the cult. He abandoned me and my children for another woman, I divorced him and went to work to earn my own living and to support my children. Because of these huge "set-backs", I could no longer belong to the symphony and opera guilds, and do all the other social stuff these women do. One of them died, recently, still a virgin. In her case, she never found a man good enough--these were her own words.
I wonder about all the re-publishing of new editions that the Deseret Book publishing company is going to have to do, to edit out "Mormon" from book titles and subject matter, lesson manuals, even hymns, etc. Lots of business for Deseret Books. There is that connection with Wendy and Sheri and Deseret Books, after all. I guess DB makes Mormon memorabilia and plaques, etc., too. They will be bu$y!
