674. RANDOM THOUGHTS — Group 8


♦       The number one survey complaint of women about their man is this: Too little affection. It’s deceptive, however. Affection is but a starter to affirm a woman’s sense of value to her man, which is what she’s really after.

♦       Feminism asserts itself to conquer male dominance. Women already knew how, but they let politics intrude the bedroom and male dominance has become greater if we measure it by the increased instances of masculine independence, aggressiveness, and violence since the 1960s.

♦       Female dominance is consciously thought out, deliberately designed, proven in reality, and potentially stronger. It’s the true purpose behind femininity and relies on logic, reason, gender influence, multiple agendas, deep feelings, personal persuasiveness, parlaying the present for the future, and whatever else women individually and collectively can create to get their way.

♦       Late in life hormones make a big difference. Her ratio of female hormones to testosterone falls, and she tends toward aggressiveness and dominance. His levels of testosterone fall, and he becomes less assertive and aggressive. 

♦       To the extent she expects him to be in charge, he expects her to be submissive. Negotiated and consistent agreements about who’s most responsible for what help breathe stability into a couple’s relationship.

    But I wonder Guy. . .Im taking a women studies class and am quite confused. I benefit everyday from feminism. I would not sit in a college classroom, have the right to vote or even be able to play many sports if it wasn’t for feminism.

    I know it is not “as” need today as it was in yesteryear. . .but I sometimes wonder if you are portraying an all too nastalgic picture of the past. Yes, women were marrying early and possibly recieving much affection from men, but were they not also oppressed and treated as second class citizens?

    Advancements come with a price, and sadly it seems that women’s equal footing with men has cost the family sturcture, but does that mean that the steps toward equality should have never been taken?

    Your Highness Tamara,

    I quote you and then offer bolded comment.

    “I’m taking a women studies class and am quite confused.”

    Perhaps your confusion comes from this: Women studies have a hidden agenda to dispel objections to feminist theory and dogma. Political correctness rules, and PC and truth are mutually exclusive. So, confusion is not surprising.

    “I would not sit in a college classroom, have the right to vote or even be able to play many sports if it wasn’t for feminism.”

    Sure you would. They all came about long before Feminism and your birth. Admittedly, were it not for feminists, you might not be enjoying taxpayer funded and exclusively female sports or football and coed wrestling.

    “I sometimes wonder if you are portraying an all too nostalgic picture of the past. … were [women] not also oppressed and treated as second class citizens?”

    Not until Women’s Lib and Feminism began claiming it. In fact, the most unique difference between men and women today and yesteryear is this: Members of each sex used to respect the other sex more than they respected their own gender, but not today.

    I deal more in reality than nostalgia. True, men dominated the workplace and society (what people do), but women dominated home and culture (why people do what they do in society). This social and domestic balance bred cooperation instead of the competition fostered between the sexes, after feminists began blaming and laying guilt trips on the male gender.

    “Advancements come with a price … but does that mean that the steps toward equality should have never been taken?”

    Of course not. I demean none of the economic, political, and legal advancements made by females. But the benefits are not without cost. You may ease your confusion by reading about costs in the DARK SIDE OF FEMINISM by clicking on the CONTENTS page at blog top.

    “To the extent she expects him to be in charge, he expects her to be submissive. ”

    Good one, Guy! The problem is, many guys want to be in charge and want you to be submissive, but they don’t want to take responsibility and do the heavy lifting, and instead want her to. And then what is she getting out of it? As one song states, you have to be the king to wear the crown. At least that’s the way it is with me.

    Over time I have come to the conclusion that I much prefer the man to take the lead and be in charge as much as possible, and as long as they are doing what they need to be doing, I have no problem being very submissive, albeit extremely dominant in just the feminine way you have described.
