After Women Took off Their Aprons, Advertisers Began Taking Off the Rest!

fem 17Once we won our equal liberty to choose our personal “place” in the world, the male ego swiftly began to make sure that women would never forget their universal “purpose” in the world.

By T.L.Dayen

They say “a picture paints a thousand words.” Imagery has the power to elicit emotion and provoke thought. It can also be used to subconsciously persuade or manipulate. Imagery has also historically been used to disseminate propaganda such as the iconic “Rosie the Riveter;” an animated image of a strong-armed woman in a factory uniform intended to convey that it was acceptable to see women; the majority of the domestic work force during the war effort of WWII, as strong and capable. Images can also portray social behavioral norms like iconic Norman Rockwell fem 15paintings depicting ‘normal’ life in middle and working class America from the early to mid 20th century. Culturally, our social norms are reflected through imagery in our media; movies (entertainment mostly) and advertising (expressly to persuade).

Imagery in advertising works to convince, confirm or inform viewers about what they should want, think, identify with or accept as good for them. When advertisers use sexually implicit images to sell a product, it is reaffirming stereotypes that objectify women’s bodies and marginalize their humanity.

Selling Sex

Exploiting sexuality to sell a product is, unfortunately, effective. The ‘sex kitten’ eating Doritos on T.V. prompts the dorritosman to buy the chips because he wants to “get the girl” in the ad, and the woman buys the chips because she wants to “be the girl” in the ad; “We’re a visually explicit culture that’s become comfortable with selling domain names and winter coats on the backs of pretty, naked people” (Thompson, 2011).

Using sex in advertising subliminally links our most primal motive of procreation to the impulse desire for that product/service. In other words, buy the product, get (feel) the sex.

Sell Sex; Buy Sexism

The problem with ‘selling sex’ is that it takes the elemental human drive to procreate (which requires dominant and pliant roles), and attaches it to everything in our lives from food to cars to clothing to cleaning products to insurance. fem 14The dominant/ pliant roles of our sex organs become the roles we identify with as represented subliminally by the products and services we need and use every day. By ascribing the yielding female sex organ to her overall nature and character (as subordinate), advertisers can use sexually explicit imagery to not only potently objectify women’s bodies, but also marginalize female humanity by transforming “actual women into [sexual] objects, devoid of individual will or subjectivity” (Benshoff and Griffin 238-256).

The female body, pliant in sex, becomes the objectified woman, subordinate in life.

Even while women have made stellar strides in education and work force parity since the blatantly sexist advertising of the 1950’s; “an era when women’s roles were confined to the corridor between the bedroom and the kitchen” (Thompson, 2011);

the ‘new sexism’ is simply explicitly sexist imagery without the explicitly sexist messaging. In the 21st century, the message of sexual servitude is “implied.”

“Having lost the argument that women are incompetent, American advertising has had to settle on the argument that fem 18women are [still] attractive” (Thompson, 2011). In other words the iconic domestic dependent ‘June Cleaver’ telling viewers something like, “Your husband will never complain about undercooked eggs again with this new and improved egg timer!” has been replaced with the sexually implicit ‘cleavage and stilettoes’ seductively and silently stepping out of a Lincoln Continental. I call this “objectified female imagery.” This more modern version of sexism has only fed new life into age old social constructs of female subordination, because “American women still develop a sense of self-worth based primarily on how they look, rather than how talented or intelligent they are” (Benshoff and Griffin 238-256).

Domestic dependent submissiveness has simply been replaced by sexual objectification; both are demeaning and subordinate positions of “service.”

What’s even more poignant is that some of worst offenders of this type of sexist advertising are ‘women on women.’ fem 19Women who appeared on a Phil Donahue Show “fashion segment,” un-apologetically defended their unusual preoccupation with ‘perfecting’ their hair, skin, eyes, clothing and bodies. Susan Bordo took note of their naiveté and that “putting on makeup, styling hair, and so forth are conceived of only as free play, fun, a matter of creative expression,” but in reality is, “also experienced by many women as ‘necessary’ before they show themselves to the world, even a quick trip to the corner mailbox.” Bordo expresses her concern that the true messages being sent by ‘fashion statements’ are merely “whimsical and politically neutral vicissitudes [that] supply endless amusement for women’s [apparent] eternally superficial values.” Bordo goes on to say in the context of the fashion and beauty industry, “the specific ideals that women are drawn to embody…are seen as arbitrary, without meaning [by society].”

In other words, obsession with fashion culturally indicates frivolous and superficial priorities.

Bordo’s trepidation with the multi-million dollar fashion and beauty industry is shared by Benshoff and Griffen who assert that this advertising strives to persuade women to “buy their [own] femininity;” be re-made into “some ideal fem 20form” as an “object of the male gaze (objectification).” This, alleges Benshoff and Griffen, actually convinces women “to be complicit in their own objectification.” A massive and still growing fashion and beauty industry in America may be evidence that many women have indeed “internalized the ideology that their self-worth is based upon their public image… that achieving total objectified desirability is the only thing that will give them happiness and fulfillment” and that, “this mythical ideal keeps patriarchal (male) domination in place” (Benshoff and Griffin 238-256). If women are buying sexism, then apparently sexist advertising is working.

Hijacked Sexuality

Full disclosure: as a woman myself, I am frustrated that an industry has “hijacked” my God given sexuality for their profits! Can a woman in the 21st century fully express her innate sexuality without the implication that she is consenting to, even encouraging the sexist messages sent by the objectified female imagery in media advertising? And what of those who feed into the ‘cultural messages’ that are fabricated from objectified female imagery in the media; that a woman’s sexuality is by its very nature literally “there for the taking?”fem 5

Can a woman in the 21st century fully express her innate sexuality personally without the implication that she is “asking for it” publically? I fear that the answer to these questions today is “no.”

Sharon Marcus writes of the misleading dialogue used when legislating rape laws or hearing rape cases; “The rape script describes female bodies as vulnerable, violable, penetrable, and wounded.” A website called “Controltonight.com” ran an ad showing a young woman’s legs with her panties around her ankles lying on what looks like a bathroom floor. The ad reads, “2:19 a.m. She didn’t want to do it, but she couldn’t say NO.” The ad intends to warn against drinking and date rape, but the ‘message’ is that women’s bodies are simply up for grabs by anyone who may gain the advantage to take it – and that’s somehow a woman’s fault. Marcus purports, “the adherents of rape culture see female sexuality as a property which only men can truly own, which women often hoard, which can thus justifiably be wrested from us, which women themselves merely hold in trust for a lawful owner. Rape thus becomes the theft or violation of one man’s property rights by another.”

fem 8If women’s sexuality is not even seen in our law as our own rightful possession, it is no wonder it could be unabashedly exploited personally or commercially by whomever and however it serves to benefit.

Audrey Lorde writes of the uses and power of the ‘erotic’ – in this context, ones ‘passions;’ sexual or otherwise; “We have been taught to suspect this resource, vilified, abused and devalued within western society… the erotic has been encouraged as a sign of female inferiority.” So a woman’s capacity to “feel deeply” has been equated with weakness, and that “only by the suppression of the erotic within our lives and consciousness can women truly be strong. But this strength is illusory, for it is fashioned within the context of male models of power” (Lorde 188-192).

If we follow Lordes’ premise, then a woman’s capacity to feel her own sexuality is considered “suspect” and therefore only passably expressed within and through our patriarchal society’s consent and capacity to control it.

Conclusion

What came first, female objectification or female objectified imagery? The truth is not what you might think. While media imagery only began in the early 1900’s, female objectification is just one arm of female subordination that has fem 12stigmatized the male/female dynamic for thousands of years. However, in the 21st century human kind is capable of growing beyond our prejudices; capable of a much broader perspective of the male/female dynamic.

In the 21st century human kind is capable of recognizing our two species as ‘different in measure but equal in value.’

This is where the media continues to culturally perpetuate female objectification even as we are collectively capable of moving beyond it. Advertising media imagery is especially harmful because it is scrupulously knitted within the fabric of our consumer based culture. Every decade that passes, fem 4human kind becomes more familiar with women in leadership positions of authority in politics, more acceding to our dependability as an equal successful womanpartner within the home, and more reliant on our equally competent skills in the work place and industry. While this reality of the male/female dynamic may smack of truth, the false postulation of our disparity and subordination continues to be culturally projected before us as sexually objectified minions of the patriarchal social construct.

Women’s sexuality; our very autonomy is reduced to a collective cultural commodity, and only valid through its collective cultural usefulness to the patriarchal bedroom, boardroom or billboard.

If sex is selling, it’s only selling women out.

“Life!?”

At What Point “Human?”

dads pic

By Shane Stewart

March 20

I am a man blogging on a subject that in truth belongs entirely in the realm of female consciousness and control. Women, and only women have the right to control their own bodies. Men have no business legislating anything about the female body. So why am I writing on this subject that belongs solely in the world of the female? I must write on this subject as a male because I know that the male of our species has hijacked the definition of “human life,” and it has been done solely to strengthen the image of male “superiority.” Men have done it to further strip the female of any power and authority over her own body and what happens in -or to – it. The negative, dominant, violent male ego knows no bounds in its blatant attempts at maintaining female oppression and domination throughout the world – forever. Men have women “locked down” in every aspect of life, and the male ego is now even trying to “legally,” through legislation, reach into the “cradle of life” – the female womb – to control and oppress women; to legislate that a human being exists inside a woman’s body at the moment of “insemination” by the male sperm. This is a ludicrous, female – oppressive, male ego idea. This type of “moral legislation” is mostly known as “person-hood.” And the legislation being proposed by these men about the definition of “life” is being driven mostly by religious fantasies which is in violation of the separation of church and state in the U.S. Constitution and, I must add, in the separation of “morality” and individuality in human society! Every American has the right to religious “freedom.” But no American has the right to force their religious “ideology” upon the other citizens of America through government legislation, no matter what your religious belief. We are not a theocracy! Every American as well, has the right to their own “moral” structure, but not the right to force those morals  upon others in society.

To the male ego, the female is nothing more than a resource, a commodity to be used and controlled by men; much like a deposit of oil, a stand of trees, or a herd of cattle. And men are the ones who have taken unto themselves the power  to decide how the “female resource” is to be used on this planet. And men have decided that the “use” of women is mostly sexual and domestic in nature. Men long ago quashed any concepts that women might have had regarding female “independence.” In the consciousness of most men, women are a “dependent attachment,” an addendum to the male ego, and certainly do not stand as equal “partners” in this “man‘s” world. This male ego attitude of female inferiority is quite remarkable because everyone knows we have all arrived on Earth through a woman, haven’t we? How then can women be “inferior” to the very beings they “create?” 

Humanity is the product of female labor. It is “she” who brings forth our population. It is “her” body that allows or disallows a bio-chemical reaction to continue to possibly develop into an independent being. And that process takes months and months inside the female body. The male body has nothing at all to do with that “eventual” development. In the entire process of procreation, the male has but a small responsibility; a brief encounter of necessity for “insemination.” And if “artificial” insemination is used for pregnancy, then that brief encounter is not even necessary. The male presence is not required throughout the entire process of pregnancy, or the entire lifetime of that being. Not so for the female. So obviously, the responsibility for “life” between the male and female is wholly and entirely, out of balance; a brief encounter as opposed to months and months and years and years? Men do not like that fact! It makes them appear to be relatively unimportant. And in reality, that is the cold, hard truth. This is why many dominant males are trying so hard to legislate that the second the sperm “breaks through” the wall of the ovum (insemination) a human being has sprung forth in the womb of a woman. This fallacy of thinking is critical to the image of male superiority because what is being said here is that the sperm is the most important element in life and decides everything. Not so! And a sperm does not “break through” the wall of the ovum. If that were true many more of these millions of sperm would be banging their way into the same ovum at the same time! This however, is a good example of the forceful and violent way most men think about women; the sperm (male) dominates the ovum (female). The truth is that the ovum “accepts” a sperm and then closes off to the others. Acceptance is the female reality and the truth. Force is the male reality and the lie.

There is no human “life” in the ovum at the moment of insemination. There is simply a bio-chemical reaction taking place. Just as surely as a seed newly planted in a field is not the crop, a seed newly planted in a female womb is not a human being!! No one plants rows and rows of corn seed then turns around the next day to go get the tractor and harvest the crop! There is no crop! Developmental stages must occur over time through which bio-chemical reactions can build a viable product. This is also true in the human world. In actuality, the entire issue of when life occurs during procreation is merely about male ego control over women, their bodies, and their activities! It’s all about the image of male “superiority” and male dominated “religious” control over women. Men have dominated women across thousands of centuries and will struggle to continue to do so at any expense, forever!

Many egotistical and oppressive men – and some women molded by them – are rabid about not allowing women the freedom to discontinue a pregnancy. This means at anytime under any conditions, even unto the death of the mother! And to make matters even worse for women, those people trying to legislate the definition of “life” are also trying to stop the use of birth control! Any kind of birth control! Many company owners will impose their religious “ideology” upon their female workers by molding their insurance plans that will pay for Viagra to bolster a man’s virility, but will not pay for birth control where-by a woman could prevent becoming pregnant and not have to discontinue it. So now we have an unbelievable situation where men would deny a woman the ability to prevent a pregnancy, and once pregnant, would force her to give birth, even unto her own death. Where is “pro-life” in the conscious killing of a woman? This is truly an unspeakable evil perpetrated by the male ego. There are even organizations today making the claim that birth control itself (the prevention of pregnancy) is killing “children!” Where are these children that are being killed? How can you “kill” something that does not exist? Truly, these people see women solely as broodmares and servants, and are determined to control the entire sexuality of the female!

So what about the sperm itself in this issue? There is hardly any attention given to the sperm in all this ruckus about “life.” If men insist that the sperm is life, then why are they not legislating protection for that life. Let’s consider for a moment the various ways many men treat that life. That “life” is ejaculated down shower drains, down the toilet, behind the barn, off in the bushes, into a condom, into a “sex toy,” into their fist, onto a glossy page in a sex magazine, and yes, even into animals! Should this not be considered then the “destruction” of life? Men do not consider their sperm to be “life” until it is ejaculated into a female vagina. Then suddenly this sperm is immediately a human being? Should there not be legislation then that a man cannot ejaculate his sperm anywhere or anytime unless it is into a female vagina? Is that not the protection of “life?” Just imagine those millions of sperm dying down the drain! But the sperm does not construct human life. Human life is constructed in the female ovum in stages, through bio-chemical reactions, over a long period of time!!! But once again male domination of the female springs forth. And if a pregnancy does continue to eventual fruition, men have assured that this child will come into a world dominated by the male ego practice of Patrilineage. This practice (ancestry through the male line) is overwhelmingly followed in virtually all societies of the Earth. Men consider children to be “theirs.” “These are ‘my’ children. They have ‘my’ name. She only gives birth to these children for me. That is her duty! To give me children.” And on and on they go in their male ego fantasy world…

This blog is titled “Life?; At What Point “Human?” Frankly I am not sure anyone knows when that point is reached. I do know that the moment the ovum and sperm combine, the “potential” for human life is there, yes. But potential is not “actuality;” it is only “possibility.” Many things can occur over time through the process of the construction of viable life in the womb, including spontaneous miscarriage and still-birth. Again, it is ludicrous to say that a human being has sprung forth at the moment of insemination. This idea is only being bandied around so men can further continue their campaign to dominate the female body. Some men say that the intention of the sperm is the development of “human life”. But again, intent is not a “reality.” Intent can be changed at anytime. This is comparable to saying that a bank robber who walks in with the intent to rob a bank, must now continue to do so at any cost because that was the intent. Are these people saying intent can’t be changed? Insemination is only the design for something; it is not the actuality of it. Again, this “idea of life” at insemination is being driven by religious fantasies which are only “beliefs.” Religious “belief,” and/or any other “belief” does not have to have rationale, thought, or truth behind it.

Suppose I burn the blueprint design for a ten story building and I am taken to court. What will the charge be? Destroying a ten story building? There was no building to destroy. The judge might say; “Mr. Stewart, the prosecutor is charging you with destroying a ten story building! How do you plead?”   I will respond; “Your Honor, I am innocent. There was no building. I simply burnt a piece of paper that had a ‘design’ for a possible building. Is that destroying a building?” The judge will dismiss the case. Why? Because the blueprint potential, the design for a building is not the actuality of a building. At what point human life occurs in the womb is not a decision to be legislated by the male ego through male dominated religious edict! It is an issue that must rest entirely with the female of our species. But I do know that it is NOT at the moment of “insemination.” That is simply a male ego lie to continue female oppression and most women know that.

Every woman on Earth is inherently endowed with the right to discontinue pregnancy for ANY reason up to a certain point. The morning after? Of course! One week down the road? Absolutely! A month from now?  Yes! I will save any further comments on this subject for another blog because this particular writing is solely to correct the male ego lie that a human being “appears” at the moment of insemination. Once again, this is religious ideology and personal “moral” structure, and those who believe it are free to do so. But that “belief” must not be forced upon the human female in our society!

Implanting the “Attitude” of Female Oppression

Male/Female “Stereotype” Behavior

February 9, 2015

By Shane Stewart

Do you ever wonder why men and women play such different “roles” in society? Does it ever disturb you to think that almost everyone on Earth is “acting out” stereotype male/female behavior roles they were taught? Why is it that men and women are “expected” to act in certain ways? Why are women expected to act “subordinate” around men, and men expected to act “dominant” around women? And why do we seem to “act like men and women are supposed to act” without even giving it a second thought? Do you ever think about how you act when you are around the “opposite” sex, and why you act that way? We are so conditioned to “act” like girls and boys, men and women, males and females, that we may never be able to change it. And our stereotype male/female behavior is the very thing that maintains the injustice of female oppression. Women especially are deeply “implanted” with female, subservient behavior patterns, conditioned perhaps to the point of not even knowing that their behavior is designed to maintain – and is maintaining – their own female oppression. The world-wide social construct of male/female behavior patterns strongly supports male domination of the female. So men of course, do not want to see changed. Here is a common claim out of the mouth of the male: “Well that’s how men and women are ‘supposed’ to act. It’s natural. We’ve always acted that way and you can’t change it.” It appears that men really have it wrapped up for themselves.

-The following is an excerpt from The Female Imperative-

“The interaction between men and women in every culture on earth is an open exhibition of superior male and inferior female stereotype behavior patterns. Children learn how they are expected to behave by watching the men and women around them as they go about their daily business performing appropriate, authoritative male and subordinate female roles of behavior. These everyday displays of gender-specific male/female behavior patterns are deeply absorbed into the child’s mind; imprinting the attitude that the male is most certainly superior to the female. Children automatically accept, adopt, and mimic the human behavior they observe around them as being normal, and will continue to display such “normal” human behavior as they journey throughout their lives. The exhibition of dominant male and subordinate female behavior is essential to the process of planting and nurturing the seeds of the image of male superiority and female inferiority in the minds of young children.”

“Seeing that each new generation of males is properly conditioned to maintaining female oppression is paramount in the lives of most men. Throughout the world men find their importance in the ego image of being “superior” to women. Indeed, manhood is defined by a man’s ability to dominate and control the inferior females around him. Conditioning young boys to believe they are superior to girls must begin at an early age. Men form boys unto their own negative image by planting the seeds of violence, aggression, and superiority into their young minds. Men insist that boys be physically aggressive and dominant. They teach them that they are superior to, and vastly more important than, weak and inferior girls. Men fully understand that male dominant programming cannot be put off until later in life. This programming must be completed before a boy reaches the “age of reason” or he may find it very difficult to accept the primitive notion that one human being has an inherent right to dominate another. If boys were allowed to develop naturally, without being saturated with the attitude of male superiority, they would develop not as oppressors of women, but as human beings, existing in a gender equitable world.”

“Contrary to what the male ego wants us to believe, humans are not predisposed to gender-specific behavior. We are not born with a “gender behavior road map” that leads us to act as stereotype males and females. Behaving as a boy or girl is not a genetically inherent human trait, but comes out of an applied process that indoctrinates children with appropriate images that represent superior male and inferior female behavior patterns. Gender specific behavior is a learned process. We are designated male or female dependent upon the shape of our bodies. The male body has the shape of the penis. The female body has the shape of the vagina. The type of behavior programming children receive is simply determined by whether they were born with a penis or vagina. Children born with a body in the shape of a penis are programmed for dominant and aggressive behavior. Children born with a body in the shape of a vagina are programmed for subservient and submissive behavior. This is easily accomplished because children constantly observe men displaying dominant and superior behavior over women, and women constantly displaying submissive and subservient behavior under men in everyday life.”

“Programming the child’s mind for gender specific, male/female, stereotype behavior is critical to the foundation that supports the perpetual image of male “superiority.” Infant boys and girls are born onto this earth with no concept or preconceived idea of proper gender behavior. They are open and receptive to learning. They cannot act like a ‘superior’ boy or an ‘inferior’ girl unless they are conditioned to do so.” (Stewart and Dayen, 2014, Ch. 22, p.120-121).

* * *

Learning how to “act” as a boy or girl by watching men and women is the process I call “observation imprinting,” the most subtle of all types of behavioral conditioning, but yet the most effective. It depends upon the minds of children being implanted with the seed of the image of male superiority and it will grow just as surely as a seed planted in fertile soil.

We are all born as human beings with open minds. The fact that we are physically born as “male or female” has nothing to do with our “social” position or character as “dominant or subservient.” Our male/female “body shape” merely determines our “role” in physical human reproduction. THAT IS ALL! There is no “built in” dominant or subordinate behavior patterns between males and females. Those patterns are falsely assigned to us and maintained by the negative male ego.

Children are born “innocent” of the negative effects of prejudice and hate that are brought about through ethnicity, race, culture, nationality, religion, and gender-ism; all divisive factors that the male ego has established to maintain conflict within humanity and perpetuate the oppression of the female. Children are simply open and curious about life. They want to learn, but instead they are “implanted” with the negativity and hate of the divisive attitudes of “pride” in their particular culture, nationality, race, ethnicity, and religion; and for boys, their gender! We do not give children a chance to become a unified human species, to develop “pride” in being human. Boys are strongly molded by the male ego to be aggressive in preparation for their time in war and domination of women. Girls are strongly molded by the male ego to be subservient and subordinate to the male in preparation for their time in having “his” children and taking care of “his” house.He” will boss, “she” will obey.

Such is the sad state of our species of which I am working very hard to change. I am a male human being. I understand that like all men, I am “infected” with the male ego which definitely effects my judgment. However, although every man is infected with the male ego, the male ego is not the same “strength” in every man. Some men have a very “thick” male ego. Some have a “thin” male ego. Men can change by “peeling away” layers of their negative male ego through understanding that they are not here to be dominant over women, but cooperative. That they are not here to be superior to women, but to stand as equal partners as two halves of one human whole. I know it is possible for men to change because I am doing it! I have peeled away layer upon layer of my male ego to the point of being able to co-write the The Female Imperative with my partner T.L. Dayen, and participate with her in this blog site dedicated to female emancipation. I can only write these words because I have “thinned out” my male ego to the point that I can now see the truth through it. It’s a “liberating” feeling. It is comforting to me when men respond to my blogs and comment that “it’s a good read,” or they “understand,” and they, like me, know they can change.

Why Does the Evolved Female Seek “Equality” with the Destructive Male??

Some women are tragically sacrificing their own creational consciousness to become “like men!

By Shane Stewart

Modern women are struggling for their “freedom;” something they erroneously consider that men already possess. Many modern women therefore, feel it necessary to “have what men have,” “do what men do,” and “act like men act,” in order to be “free.”  This attitude displays that many women have “accepted” the negative image that the male ego has painted of them; that they are indeed “inferiors” of men, and therefore must reach “upward” to match the status of the “superior” male. Sadly then, many women (and “feminist” organizations) consider female emancipation, or “freedom,” to mean women attaining “equality” with men! This is ludicrous! It is obvious that more women of the Earth are already generations ahead of most men in every “quality” of human consciousness that matters for our survival and evolution: compassion, compromise, cooperation, and community.  These “human qualities,” possessed by the female of our species, are necessary elements in order for humanity to move forward in evolution.

In short, if the male ego continues to force us to “think” in terms of “superior and inferior,” then female creational consciousness is already far “superior” to the negativity of the male ego and its consciousness of destruction and oppression. Women have let themselves be “fooled” by the destructive male ego into believing that the “physical” human body is the primary and fundamental “reality” of “being human,” and therefore a woman, not physically being a man, nor generally being physically as strong as a man, can never be “equal” to a man, and therefore can never be as “truly free” as a man. Women are admonished by the male ego to “accept their place” in the human structure and do what they were “created” to do; which is of course, to serve men! Many young males who might otherwise seek “individuality,” and think differently, have been duped by males of previous generations with the fallacy that “this is a man’s world,” and therefore it is a man’s “birthright” to control the female.  Men therefore, have succeeded in “reversing” the polarity of truth in human consciousness, because it is men who should be striving for “equality” with women! Women cooperate: men* conflict. Women give life: men* take life. Women create: men* destroy.

The concept of women trying to attain “freedom and equality” by being “like men” is comparable to a scenario in which humanity has to attain “equality” with the Apes in order to be “free” because apes are free. Because men are generally “stronger” than women, they have convinced women that “physical strength” equals “superior person”. Accordingly then, following this “logic,” does it mean that weaker men are inferior to stronger Apes? The way the male ego forces men to behave, it would appear so! If women succeed in lowering themselves to “become like men,” then the world will suffer a tragic void of female creational consciousness. We will be left with only the male consciousness of destruction and domination and therefore have no way of altering the course of our eventual annihilation upon which the male ego has set us. Our survival and subsequent evolution is entirely up to female creational consciousness.

Women cannot “become” men and expect to make the positive changes within humanity that are necessary. If women “think” like men and “act” like men, they are going to make “men” choices. Men make destructive and personal choices. This is how they are destroying our world. If women keep their female creational consciousness, and that creational consciousness is emancipated, then we will have a chance of continuing as a viable species. You must understand that it is precisely the female creational consciousness that the negative male ego is so desperate to continue oppressing, because only through female oppression can men maintain their false image of male “superiority.” As long as the beast of the male ego controls humanity, we are doomed. Men must strive to develop their creational consciousness and women must strive to help them. Men must lay down their weapon of male ego, and dissolve their negative attitude and false image of male superiority.

Every destructive, violent, and oppressive situation in the human world – past and present – has its origins in the male ego. 99.9% of all violent, destructive activity on this planet is carried out by those men driven by their negative male ego to dominate and control everything around them. The male ego is devoid of compassion, compromise, cooperation and community. This holds true especially in situations involving the female of our species.

We have had countless centuries of male leadership and false images of male superiority and female inferiority, and I am desperate to find the progress we have made in human consciousness under male leadership during those centuries. Where is it? Why are men, with their male ego, still the most violent and destructive creatures to ever have walked the Earth?

“It is MEN who commit the violence; against women, against each other, against the planet. All life on Earth is victim to violent acts from the human male!! Physical violence, sexual violence, domestic violence, gang violence, military violence, terrorist violence, racial violence, ethnic violence, homophobic violence, gun violence, serial and ritual killing, mass killing, honor killing, animal sport killing, species extinction, and violent environmental and planetary destruction; it’s ALL committed by men under the parasitic control of the male ego!”  (Shane Stewart/T.L. Dayen, The Female Imperative, 2014, p. 204)

Men fill our world with “technological wonders,” and convince us that this is indeed human “evolution” when it is merely advancement in technology. And sadly, technology is mostly used by the male ego to configure greater weapons of mass destruction through which men* can destroy more of humanity and continue their wars of domination until all is lost, including the Earth itself. Technology is the world of “it”, the world of things, not the world of humans, human interaction, and human attitudes toward each other. Men are “it” motivated; “thing” motivated. They see reality as being outside the self in the world of “it,” in the situation, not inside the self in the world of “I am.” To the male ego reality is; “It is. I want it. I dominate it.” And that includes how most men think and feel about women. Women are “it,” men want “it,” and men dominate “it.” Being focused outside the self is one reason many men can kill so easily. They have no problem with killing “it.”

Women of the world I say to you;

“You are not an ‘it.’ You are the evolution of ‘human mind’ in society. You are our only hope! As ‘creators‘ of life you understand the ‘self.’ You understand ‘I am.’ You must not sacrifice your ‘creational consciousness’ to the male ego and ‘become like men.’ You must stand as women, not as ‘men.’ You must shed the yoke of the image of female ‘inferiority’ that men have hung around your necks. There-in lies your ‘freedom,’ as well as the opportunity for men to free themselves from the male ego image of ‘superiority’, which has arrested their evolution. You must help men to rise up and become of ‘human mind.’ You must help men to develop the creational qualities of compassion, compromise, cooperation, and community. The male of our species is like a man who is so deep in a feverish illness that he doesn’t even know how sick he is. This fever of course, is the negative male ego, and it results in violent male convulsions that are destroying you, the Earth, and everything on it. The male ego is the antithesis of anything and everything creational on our planet.

Women of the world, your leadership of our species is essential to the continued survival and evolution of humanity. You must not become like our destroyers! Males and females were never meant to stand alone as two equal but separate parts of humanity. This is the false image of feminism created by the male ego that relishes in perpetuating this feminist argument, because as long as you are fighting for an “equal but separate” equality with men that can never be achieved, you will never realize the hidden truth that men and women are in fact two incomplete halves of one integral human whole. The destructive dominant male ego will cease to exist only when this evolutionary male/female union finally occurs, and the positive male nature will at last flourish.”

*It must be noted that my co-writer, T.L. Dayen and I, are not advocating that “all men” are violent destroyers. We are simply acknowledging that the violence and destruction carried out on Earth is and has been overwhelmingly carried out by men inflicted with the dominant and destructive male ego. This is not misandry. This is a statistical and historical fact! Most men are of Animal Mind. Fortunately, many men of Human Mind are working as I speak toward a sustainable future of compassion, compromise, cooperation, and community. I am one of them.

The Male Ego and Female Oppression

The Destructive Image of Male “Superiority”

By Shane Stewart

Excerpt from; “The Female Imperative” – Shane Stewart – T. L. Dayen – Confessions of a Male Chauvinist Pig – Pg 17.

“Realizing that the images of male superiority and female inferiority had absolutely no foundation in truth, was an epiphany for me. Male superiority had nothing to do with nature, evolution, or universal law. The image of male superiority was just a charade, a fallacy, a hoax, intentionally concocted by the lowly male ego for the sole purpose of gaining domination and control over women. But sadly this hoax, of gigantic proportions, has unjustly and erroneously defined and molded the lives and character of every man and woman on earth since time immemorial. The very foundation of what humans believe to be true is actually a core of negative falsehood, built by men to control women. Humanity is living a lie! I began to question the very core of human social structure and examine everything I had ever been taught about the ‘relationship’ between men and women.”

* * * *

The Negative male ego is the most violent, destructive, oppressive and sadistic beast to ever have walked the Earth. The core motivation of men driven by their male ego, is the destruction of female creational consciousness.  The false image of male “superiority” is the very tool the male ego uses to maintain control over our species and perpetuate the domination, oppression, and servitude of women. For untold thousands of generations men have been able to successfully continue their campaign of “brainwashing, imprinting, training, and programming” every human being in every nation, society, religion, culture, and cult on Earth in the fallacy of male superiority and female “inferiority.” Men dominate and oppress women, plain and simple. We see it in everyday life; in our homes, our governments, businesses, schools, restaurants, work places, and while just walking down the street. Women are the oppressed of our species, molded for purposes of sexual, domestic, economic, and social servitude as a matter of course, while the false image of male superiority nurtures a negative atmosphere that leads to women being ridiculed, belittled, mocked, beaten, raped, and murdered by men in every society on Earth. The degree of female oppression women experience is simply determined by where on this planet they live. The more “civilized and social” nations have a lesser degree of female oppression than the more “uncivilized and barbaric” ones. I’m not going to get into which nations these are because we all know which ones they are. That subject is for another blog all its own.

My purpose and dedication of course, is emancipation of the female from male domination. In order for this to occur we must first understand that men continue to dominate women even while knowing deep inside that their male “superiority” is just a fallacy, an image. But males continue to be strongly “programmed” in the domination and oppression women. So we must note that the negative attitude and false image of male “superiority” is devastating and destructive not only to the female of our species [as I have covered in depth in The Female Imperative] but also to the male of our species, because it blocks any possibility that male children will ever have a chance of developing a sense of individuality, a consciousness of “partnership” with the female, and a compassionate “human” identity as they grow, especially since the image of male superiority is automatically based upon the shape of the body at birth.  A male baby = penis; superior, dominant, intelligent! A female baby = vagina; inferior, subservient, obtuse! Boys are “boys”, not just people! They are not just half of humanity, they are the “important” half, the “superior” half, the “male” half, and this attitude is pounded into them from the very beginning. They are not “sissy” girls! Men have established from the moment of birth that those born with a penis will “characteristically” be superior to, more intelligent than, more decisive than, and more courageous than anyone born with a vagina! And this determination is made even before male or female children have a chance to utter their very first word! How can this be an intelligent determination? How does the penis endow a human being with these “qualities of character?” Is it a magical wand? I thought the qualities of intelligence, decisiveness, bravery, and courage had to be observed in people before we could determine if that was part of their “character.” Not so with the image of male superiority! That wailing little infant with a penis is determined to already be in possession of all that stuff, while that wailing little infant with a vagina will never be in possession of those qualities of character. I didn’t know that a physical body part had anything to do with your character as a human being. So, maybe in the future, men will actually claim to have discovered that “center of consciousness” where the “brain of the penis” dispenses “intelligence, decisiveness, and bravery,” and bestows “superiority” upon all those who possess it.

As I write this and read it back, it even sounds ridiculous and incredible to me that half the people on Earth [men] have this “thought” process (male superiority) running through their minds all the time! Many men live in a complete fantasy world about women. Because in reality, no one really believes men have any kind of “superiority” over women, except perhaps in the realm of physical, bodily, brute strength. But brute strength is not “superiority of character.” The fantasy world of male superiority that most men live in will eventually implode and collapse upon them, unless they have succeeded in wiping out our planet first.

It’s quite sad and a bit pathetic to finally come to the realization that half the population of humanity (male) is rudderless and without identity unless it can be falsely perceived as superior to the other half of humanity’s population (female). And let’s not forget that all these “superior” men were dependent upon these “inferior” women to even have a chance of getting to planet Earth in the first place! In reality women are the ones who have a rudder; women have direction; women give life. Women have a foundation of “I am” which needs no image of “superiority” in order “to be.” Men know this and that is why they are desperate to “attach to, dominate, oppress, and control” women.   And it is upon this foundation of female oppression that the image of male superiority must stand, or it will fracture and crumble into dust.   The moment males are born, they enter a life where they are encouraged to “believe, act out, and behave” as though they are superior to the very women through which bodies they came. This must cause an unresolved “conflict” in every man as he gets older, and this conflict surely results in frustration that leads to the demonstration of perpetual male violence!

Men cannot give birth. That process is strictly reserved for the female. This is a fact that does not bode well for the image of male “superiority.”  So men have come up with a way to show women that they can also give “birth.”   I am not being facetious here. Men are desperately trying to perfect the process of human cloning so as to “prove” that they too can “create life,” and this will allow them to project a still stronger image of male superiority. We will truly enter the “age of Frankenstein” when men perfect the process of cloning a complete human body, and sadly they will be proud of it! And what about the day when men stand and proclaim that a “male clone” is superior to a “human female?” Oh, look out!! And how many men do you think would gladly spend money to pay for a clone of their favorite “sexual” female for just that purpose? Do not be naive about the “sexual” motivation of the negative male ego, nor deceived by it. I am in absolute and total disagreement with the cellular cloning of a complete human body.  But I am in absolute and total agreement with the cloning of individual organs for health and medical purposes.  (I will dedicate a future blog to cloning).

All this male superiority malarkey never ceases to amaze me, because everyone (men, women, boys, girls) knows that male superiority is just an atrocious fallacy, a baseless image. But the problem is that we all maintain this facade by continuing to wear our “masks” of superior male and inferior female even while knowing they are just masks! Men wear their mask of male superiority voluntarily, but they force the mask of female inferiority over the face of women.  Men will never take off their mask of superiority and they staunchly forbid women to remove their mask of inferiority, even under threat of harm. So the negative, violent, destructive charade of male superiority and resultant female oppression will go on, and on, and on, even unto our eventual demise.

All my life I was a male chauvinist pig with a strong attitude of male superiority.  I “used” women sexually, but I was not physically violent with them. I have never, nor will I ever, strike a woman. Men who beat women are solid “cowards of character.” They are “animal mind” beasts. Sadly, many of these men consider “hitting and pushing women around” to be a “manly” activity! But I am aware that just because I didn’t beat women does not excuse the fact that I exploited them sexually. However, in my world of sexual exploitation I considered women to be “equal” to me, in that they had the same opportunity to “use” me sexually. And yes, many of them did. So in my world I was on parity with women. Plus, I came out of the 60’s generation where “free love” meant sex with whomever you wanted, if you could accomplish that! That was my “free” generation.  I considered myself to be a “normal” guy, just trying to “get laid” and to fulfill the sexual “expectations” of the women I was with. This of course “died a slow death” as I got older because women paid less and less  attention to me, and “freedom” became more than sexual. I fell behind the times.

To truly understand my past “sexual” motivation I had to understand my broken, dysfunctional childhood. My family split apart before I was even one year old. My brother and I (he was 1 1/2 years older than me) were separated and constantly being shuttled around, forced to stay for a few months at a time with different members of the extended family. Because of this when I started school I had to transfer quite often and never had a chance to lay down any kind of foundation for a “permanent” relationship with anyone. For the first few years I was okay with that and I logged in very good grades on my report cards. But that would change. As I analyzed my childhood, it was apparent why I had become a chauvinist pig.

Excerpt from; “The Female Imperative” – Shane Stewart – T. L. Dayen, Confessions of a Male Chauvinist Pig – Pg 14.

“It was during the fifth grade that my entire life would suddenly be altered forever. That was the year my hormones erupted and I was sent careening down a path that I would be locked into for decades to come. The fifth grade was the year I discovered girls! Girls! One day they weren’t there, and the next day they were everywhere! I had never even looked at girls before, and now I couldn’t keep my eyes off them. Where had they come from? How did they get here? I was mesmerized!   How could I not have known about girls? They were pretty and exciting, and they liked to giggle and flirt with me! They were way more fun than my buddies, and they smelled good too! Girls gave me a strange feeling in my gut. I never felt more alive than when I was around girls. Life was getting exciting and I loved it! I lost interest in studying and learning, and it showed in my grades. But I didn’t care. That wasn’t important any more. Now I went to school because that’s where the girls were. Every time I enrolled in a new school my purpose was to get the prettiest girl there. I did not fail. Girls let me know they liked me. They told me I was cute and treated me like I was someone special. They didn’t know that I was just an unimportant, scruffy little kid from a totally dysfunctional and fractured background. So after all this time I had finally become someone important! However, this self-importance was only measured by how many girls could assuage my young male ego – a male chauvinist pig was born!”

* * *

Men continue to oppress women in every possible way; domestically, socially, economically, sexually, physically, and violently. Ironically men consider their image of “superiority” to be their birth right. They are superior to the very beings that give them life?? This attitude is a major problem and the only solution to this is that we must change what we “teach” our children.  We must begin to place into the minds of children of all future generations the truth that “equality for all humans” [female and male] is an underlying principle in the foundation of our species. However, in this year of 2014, children are still taught the lie that “all men are created equal,” not all humans. What about women? Men do not extend the concept of equality to the realm of the female. Many women are literally social, domestic, and sexual servants. They are not independent human beings, but an appendage of men! The attitude of male superiority and female inferiority is ground into the minds of our children as they continue to grow. And if this is not changed, and soon, we face a very bleak future indeed, because our “future” will simply continue to be a replication of our violent and destructive past, dominated by the animal mind of the negative male ego and awash in female oppression and violence.  The male ego and the image of male superiority is the foundation of our social destruction and the destruction of our planet!

Shane’s Rant on I.S.I.L.

The Insane Male Ego Run Amok.

Murder, domination, and 

absolute female oppression!

By Shane Stewart

This website is dedicated to female emancipation. This dedication is necessarily “moral and political” in its nature. I write about and praise that which advances the cause of female emancipation and I write about and condemn that which perpetuates the injustice of female oppression.  I rarely speak in terms of “good and evil,” but the horror that the men of I.S.I.L. carry out against women, just because they’re women,  leaves me no choice but to accept that they are indeed “evil” in nature. In fact I.S.I.L. may be one of the most evil expressions of the negative male ego that has ever existed on this planet! How sad that these men exist entirely for the purpose of worshipping and spreading terror.  Where is the love? 

*  * *

All men oppress women to some degree because men consider themselves to be “superior” to women. But in a “modern” world, even men who are strongly controlled by their negative male ego (but still consider themselves to be “civilized,”) generally try to stay within acceptable parameters of “social order and decency” in their domination and control of women. They are not “blatant and overt” about it and do not “slap women around” at home or on the street. Female oppression is so deeply embedded and accepted in most societies that men have just been kind of “laying low” and letting female oppression “roll along” on its own energy. Men know they “got a good thing going,” and if not too much attention is brought to the atrocity of female oppression; it may just continue to “roll along” for quite some time. Men of “moderate” male ego know that it is no longer necessary to verbally, physically, and publicly demean, beat, and “hold women at gunpoint” to make them know that they are the “inferiors” of men. Women are already conditioned in every society on Earth to believe this fallacy. They have been brainwashed in this attitude for countless thousands of generations. So if things don’t get too bad for women, they just might keep accepting male superiority as the normal social construct. Inferiority is considered to be the “natural” position of women. So, rational men believe they “got it made” if they don’t scream too loudly about their superiority over women. They don’t want to risk a “major uprising” by the inferiors against the male dominated social order, as that would not bode well for continued male control of women and their desired social construct of female oppression. Therefore, in most “civilized” societies we see men treading lightly in their public insistence that women “stay down” and continue to be dominated. In these societies men project an appearance of giving women “some freedoms”, but very few.  Even in “civilized” societies women still perform mostly as sexual, domestic, and/or economic “servants.”

I think the reason many “moderate” men feel extreme anger toward I.S.I.L., is because these guys are not “laying low” about female oppression. They are blatant, religious, fanatical lunatics, straight up murderers and rapists, who stand with “pride” and shout out about their physical and sexual domination and oppression of women. They are “rocking the boat!” They keep screaming about their “God given right as men” to dominate and oppress women. In fact, if they don’t openly oppress women, they are not being the kind of “men” their “god” wants them to be! So now the horror of female oppression is being thrust into the forefront of our awareness in nightly newscasts. This horror is being brought home directly in our faces. Many witnesses tell of women being “carted off” to be raped, or logged in as “virgins” to be sold, or forced to “marry” some maniacal terrorist and give birth to his male child! All this is catching the attention of a lot of women who have hence-forth simply been going along with the status quo of their inferiority. But now they are beginning to ask questions. They are beginning to see that they do not have anywhere near the freedoms that men have told them they have. And they do not have the “freedoms” that men have, and they are certainly not considered to be “individual” human beings. Even in societies where female oppression is considered to be “benign”, [America and Western Europe] women still lack any substantial power and authority. I.S.I.L.’s public demonstrations of female oppression are opening the eyes of many women and taking the lid off a “Pandora’s Box” that may be impossible to close again. Women want freedom from domination by men.  They are going to start demanding some power as human beings.  They are going to start demanding control over their own lives and bodies.

I knew this would happen eventually, but I think it is going to happen much more quickly now because of the “attention” that I.S.I.L. has brought to female oppression. How can anyone hear about women being horribly tortured and abused just because they are women, and not be angry!? I hate to say this but the rise of these monsters just might be a blessing in disguise for female emancipation. Maybe women will now start to acknowledge the anger they certainly must feel about the injustice of their oppression and start taking action toward their emancipation. Women must come to realize that every man has a negative male ego which fosters the attitude of female oppression and male superiority. It is just a matter of degree within each man as to what depths unto which he will sink in his domination and oppression of women.  All men are guilty of oppressing women in one way or another; from tyrannical monster to benevolent despot.

These I.S.I.L. guys have sunk all the way out of “human” consciousness and conscience, and are molding a world where women have absolutely NO influence on anything whatsoever; a world where a donkey has more value than a woman; a world where the only purpose of women is blatant domestic and sexual servitude. A world dominated by gun-toting, egotistical, testosterone driven, screaming, marauding, murdering, raping, religiously fanatical, out-of-control, self-serving gangs of males, doing anything and everything destructive they want to do to anyone at any time! And if you say anything about it, they will just kill you! They are tyrannical, snotty nosed, violent little bad boys who now have real, loaded guns in their hands, rampant in their destruction because they’re “too big” for mommy to stop them now! No way! They’re “stronger” than her. She’s just a weak, powerless woman anyway!   These guys are running amok in the areas they control and they will come to your house and kill you if you offer any kind of logical and/or rational debate against I.S.I.L. control. These guys are violent and negative at the core, and demonstrate the very worst of humanity through the male ego. Can you imagine the horror of life under these maniacs? Whether you’re male or female?  Do you really want the future of the entire world to be under the insanity of I.S.I.L. control? There would be no future, just the destructive past repeating itself over and over in an endless loop of violence, horror, and terror until we are dragged over the precipice of our annihilation! The purpose of I.S.I.L. is the domination of every woman on Earth!! They will remove and rape any woman at will. This is their right as “victorious” males. Even the Taliban pales in comparison to the evil perpetrated against women by the men in this “organization.” And to further demonstrate their fractured and mentality, these monsters rampage along, raise and fire their guns at anyone, and as they grind their boot heels into female emancipation they pronounce themselves “pure” because they “denounce the ‘evils’ of alcohol!” Really? There is something horribly wrong with this picture!  Yes I’m ranting; outraged and angry!  Any “civilized” human being should be!

How many women do you think have volunteered to promote the “cause” of I.S.I.L.? How many women do you think are in leadership positions in I.S.I.L.? How many women do you think are prisoners of I.S.I.L.? How many women do you think, at this moment, are being raped as a matter of course and will be forced to bear “terrorist sons” under I.S.I.L.? How many women do you think, at this moment, are longing to escape the horrors of I.S.I.L. and live as human beings?  How many women do you think are sex slaves under I.S.I.L. control?

 The Creed of the I.S.I.L. “Freedom” Fighter??

I am might. Might is right.

God is He. I am he.

I am God. I am your God.

My gun makes it so.

You are woman; shut up!

You serve man. I am man.

Bear my sons. Bow to me.

Kiss my feet. Bring my tea.

I had a hard day, woman.

The Consciousness of Humanity

All Male; Half Female. All Female; Half Male

Female creational consciousness resides within all humans

By Shane Stewart

Every human being on Earth is genetically comprised of male and female chromosomes. This is an obvious fact, a biological truth, and something “everybody knows.” But it is rarely considered when we think about “who we are.” This is because the negative male ego discourages discussion, debate, and acknowledgment of this “truth.” We’ve been programmed to think of ourselves as being entirely male or entirely female. We are “men”: or “women” period! The male ego does not want us to dwell on the fact that everyone is half male or half female. Why not?   Whether you are all male and half female, (man) or all female and half male, (woman) does not determine your “character,” the “kind” of person you are, or your “sexual” preference. And this is what “frightens” many men about recognizing that they are half female. But it is just a biological fact. This biological fact has nothing to do with sexual preference whether straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise!

My body is a male body. But I acknowledge the fact that I am also biologically half female (my mother)! This does not mean that as a man, if I accept the truth that I am half female, it will lead to the exhibition of “feminine” characteristics or sexual “preference” in my behavior. I am not “feminine,” but I am half female. The only thing about us that our physical “maleness” or “femaleness” determines is our reproductive capability. Most everything else about our “being” male or female comes out of the process of stereotype, male/female, gender behavior programming we receive during childhood.   We appear to be feminine or masculine in our physical behavior because that is how we were “taught” to act as young boys and girls. And who taught us? The negative, violent, destructive male ego, of course! Boys are quickly taught to act “dominant” around girls, and girls are quickly taught to act “subservient” around boys. All this for the purpose of maintaining the destructive “image of male superiority.”

Many men, especially the “macho man,” will not even discuss the fact that they are “half” woman. To them this means they would have to have a tendency to behave in a “feminine” manner, and this means appearing to be gay! These men focus upon being a “product” of their father. It’s almost as though they consider that their mother had nothing to do with their journey toward, and subsequent arrival upon, the Earth! Many men have a strong image of male “superiority”, and the image of male superiority depends upon the image of female “inferiority” continuing to be recognized. To these men, women are just physically weak, mentally deficient, emotionally inept, indecisive people; the very antithesis of the “strong” man, and they are meant to be of service to, and dominated by, the stronger male. This domination includes female sexual servitude. This devastatingly negative attitude the male ego nurtures about the female is based entirely upon the shape of the female body. Men have a penis that makes them “men” (dominant), women have a vagina that makes them “women” (subservient), and forever this establishes our position of “inferiority” or “superiority” within society.

The negative male ego keeps humanity locked into “physical” identity, separated and divided distinctly into male/female camps for the purpose of maintaining female oppression. The violent male ego considers female qualities to be “feminine.” The sad thing is that the male ego image of male superiority cannot allow itself to be “contaminated” with “female qualities”, such as compassion, compromise cooperation and community. This is wholly irrational and neurotic as our physical identity has nothing to do with our “humanness.“   Many men are violent and “hard”. They are taught that they must be strong and avoid displaying weak soft, “emotions.” This is considered to be the domain of the female. Sadly, the male ego animal mind image of male superiority is the very beast that is destroying our planet and everything on it.

The fact that everyone is physically half female or half male leads to a greater truth of humanity. This greater truth is the fact that we all possess half male or half female “consciousness”. It is within this world of consciousness where men must be willing to journey. Female creational consciousness resides within all humans   Even macho men can keep their “manliness” if they would accept that qualities such as compassion, compromise cooperation and community are not “feminine” qualities, but human qualities that every human being can be proud to exhibit. For a man to express these qualities would truly be the exhibition of “strength.” That strength is the strength of character, not the strength of body. The male ego must step “outside” the body and see the path of annihilation upon which it has set us. Men must now be willing to ask women to teach them compassion over cruelty,   compromise over conflict, cooperation over destruction, and community over selfishness.

Men were once the proud “protectors” of our species, but they have left that fact far behind and now only seek “power” through domination and destruction. But miracles do happen, and I think eventually men will be able to shed their violent male ego and join with women in creating a peaceful world of compassion, compromise, cooperation, and community so as to pull humanity back from the brink of annihilation upon which men and their male ego has placed us, and set us once again on our natural journey through evolution.
