In a word, yes

Katy asks a fair question:

Ok…not to be argumentatives…but would the same logic follow for fellows? Are they attracted to women who mistreat them as well?

Without a doubt. These would be the guys who are drawn to women who are “spunky” and “independent”, who are able to “put them in their place”. Needless to say, that place is at the woman’s feet. A friend of mine was recently dumped by a woman who was ludicrously inappropriate for him, this marks either the fifth or the sixth consecutive disaster, all of which were predictable from the start. As I’ve told him, in a rational world he wouldn’t be permitted to select his own dates.
