I am very feminine, cute, sexy, and very much a woman, but I don't fit your description of 'women in general' and in our marriage this would never apply. I don't think stereotypes of women support your argument for submission very well.
Generalizations are just that, General. In many cases there are certain exceptions. Congratulations to you for not having to deal with this issue. (and I seriously mean that). We are not trying to "support" an arguement for submission.
As has been stated in previous posts submission means.....Willful alignment...Here's and arguement for submission. Have you ever driven a car that has a bad wheel alignment. It jerks and wobbles all over the place. If the wheels are in alignment it runs smoothly. Thats an "arguement" for submission.
