Just a few words about the equality of men and women.  It upsets me about the way women are treated as if they are the lesser.  I think it started  back in the cave days:  I have big club, and if you don’t listen to me, I will club you and drag you into the cave by your hair.( humor intended)  The truth is that the women are more than equal, and  science has proved it by the way that the brain is wired.  She can multitask easily because of the connection of the hemispheres, which are more in quantity than in men.  The emotionality of women would be far better for the world than the so called strength of men.  It would help many if one would realize that we contain  both the masculine and the feminine within ourselves.  It is necessary to understand this and try to bring about a balance, which in turn, would stop some of the brutality.  I better stop here, but there is much more to this, and would require a book to explain.


Once again, I kept it simple for facebook readers, but thought I would share it with my sophisticated friends.  Things of this nature require lengthy explaination and many gradual steps.

I completely agree with the idea of understanding that each person contains both masculine and feminine qualities that require balancing. I have an additional, but related, concern: We have long been living in societies that vehemently deny the necessity of feminine qualities, preferring, often, to express the shadow side of masculine qualities. I think it's important to look at when this began and under what circumstances. There may have been a point during our history that the masculine was so overlooked that the only way it could have its needs met was through force.

I'm so excited to see femininity being desired and expressed, but I'm concerned that this might mean the refusal of masculine (and the refusal to accept the beautiful gifts healthy masculinity offers) because of past brutalities borne of frustration and negligence. We humans tend to go to extremes, like the momentum of a pendulum swinging from far right, to far left and back again. Unless we stop the pendulum through conscious thought and action to meet the needs of both parts, we'll end up repeating our brutal selves.
