I guess I'm used to hardened sadistic New York women, with their biting cynicism and complete lack of girlishness. Their hardnosed attitudes can be appealing, but their standoffishness means that they are rarely casually flirtatious or overly friendly. They would argue that this is because they are authentic and not patriarchally oppressed or made to be 'feminine' or blah blah blah. I'm frankly tired of being told that I'm a terrible person because I don't wish every woman was a cross between Susan B Anthony and Andrea Dworkin.
Southern women aren't quite so confrontational or explicitly political, at least in my limited experience. They also seem more comfortable in their femininity, though that could be an illusion brought about by their pseudo-artificial friendliness (Pseudo-artificial because while I don't think they're being consciously manipulative, they are playing a socially constructed part.) It's very appealing, even if one is aware of the problematic aspects of women being socialized to behave in this way.
Now women who combine Southern-style feminine charm with cold-hearted New York-style calculation and toughness? Fucking invincible. If one of them wants to rule the world I sure as hell won't be able to stop her.
