Contrary to most other women, the Buffalo woman does not really need men and can be quite happy without them. For this reason some may be led into believing that she harbors hostility or indifference to members of the stronger sex, or is downright prudish. Neither view is corroborated by reality. Her apparent lack of interest in male-female pursuits does not result from any coolness on her part - although she is generally a late starter in sex - but from her natural self-sufficiency in other areas and her disdain for the follies of passion. She considers love and sex an important - but not the dominant - part of life and denies them an exaggerated significance.
This highly conservative woman also refuses to separate love from marriage and believes the latter senseless without children. It is why unwed mothers horrify her and why she is keen on getting married quite young and having numerous offspring. Do not talk to her about contraceptive pills, free unions or the Women's Liberation Movement; your words will have every chance to fall on deaf ears since she views all this as pointless.
