Yes! We do! We are really going through the wringer right now in the U.S. with the bricks of abuse and sexual harassment falling out of patriarchy. This is going to be a short blog because I have just one thing to say;
Even though I do believe that on the whole women tend to be the dominant species in terms of civility, ability, reason, intuition, communication, and leadership, I very much like and respect men as a species. Many women don’t! Like most people, I hold gender equity as an ideal and I shoot for that in my personal life. I really don’t want to live with a male partner that I can trump in most ways, yet, that has been the case for me and it sucks. As a female, I’m not turned on by that. But submissive doesn’t work either. I want shared power. So, I’m looking for an exceptional man who won’t fear my strength but won’t take advantage of my vulnerabilities, call me names, or be emotionally abusive because of mama trauma drama unresolved.
Patriarchy has essentially been a chance for males to catch up with females and I think they’ve done a pretty fair job. I am definitely one of the women that don’t want men to get any more “feminine” than they already are, nor do I think women need to get any more “masculine” than they already tend to be. Let’s have a stopping point here before we stop lusting for each other.
