That introductory clause of the second sentence is smarmy and PC.

After all, it's the women who look at other women's reaction to a man as a spur to try to make their own move. Doesn't that show that they're the ones who only want something once someone else has it? Both sexes are jealous, only in different ways.

Perhaps it would be more accurate to say men are jealous but women are envious.
