The Cinderella complex describes women's fear of independence and the unconscious desire to be taken care which become more important when the woman grows older. It was first described 1981 by Colette Dowling and is named after the Disney figure Cinderlla. It explains why women search for a protector in the figure of the Chad. Because of that society thinks that men on the other hand have to be the strong part and if not it is their own fault why they are Incels and just have to man up and not be a Manchild.
