The fair sex?

Women are the fair sex? Women are the weaker sex? Women are the dumber sex? Just where did these ideas ever come from? Once upon a time, before men figured out that they were the reason women had children, women were the most important members of primitive tribes. Once the men got the idea that it was themselves alone who could father a child and know it was their own child, the importance of the woman fell. In order to make sure the child born was yours, one had to keep his female from being able to mate with any other male. Thus the idea of ownership of women by males. Seeing how any male could bring forth a child with any female, it made the male the now important one. One could only carry on the lineage through the male seed. The female now became the second sex, the one who really didn’t matter, for the male could continue his line with any female.

Today we know that more male children are born than females, but females survive better. For centuries males died earlier than females, of course now that may not be quite so true. The stress of life is much more equal now. Men are usually  much stronger than women when it come s to physical strength, so the label of the weaker sex comes into being. But it is known that women have a higher pain tolerance than men, as it is said, if men had to bare the children, the human race would die out. Men withstand pain by being macho about it. Women do it naturally.

Dumb women, just can’t understand the world, let us men who do run it. Right! Just another way men have tried to keep the female as the second sex in this world. Even in religion, women are considered less than men. Why? It gives validity to what men do. God made man first, so man is the most important. If god made man in his image, then god must be a male.  But why does a god who is the only god have to have a sexual identity? What point is having a male god if there is no female for him? If a god impregnates one of his children, is he a sexual deviant?  Any way, keeping women ignorant helps keep them in their place.

But why did  man have to make women second class people? Because deep down man knows he is just a weird copy of the female. The nipples thing, men have them but don’t need them, so why are they there? Always thought the creation story would have made more sense if Adam was made from Eve’s rib, that would at least account for the nipple thing in some way. Men know that females drive them crazy, they have to have one or more than one. It is women who give men their driving force to do things in the world.Women want the best provider to keep themselves and their children alive and well, so the man must do that if he wants a woman at his side. I think men are ashamed of their need for women and take it out on them for making them do things. I some times think that rape is just an extension of that feeling, the need to prove that the male is more important, the dominant one of the species. It is part of the need to keep the female in her place.

When it comes to listening to the way men talk and the way women talk, it is the female is who much more open, more vicious in comments about other people, more open about sexual feelings. Hell, in every way women are just more than men. Women communicate better than men, part of the reason they tend to be the child rears in most all of the animal kingdom, plus they are the ones who nurture the children. Any male can father a child, but only a mother can really raise one.

Well enough of my ramblings. The end idea is that I think man is the weaker and the second sex of the world, not woman. I have to wonder why it took so long for women to get the vote in this country, wonder why it is alright for men to have as much sex as they can get and women are labeled bad for the same feelings, the double standard. Why the country had to vote for women getting as much pay as men for the same job? How long is it going to take for humankind to grow up and see the world as it really is? A very long time I am afraid, as long as we have religions that keep women in a second class position. It is hard to argue with what people see as a gods plan, for who wants to argue with their god? After all the Bible says god said to Eve, “he shall rule over you” and god blamed Eve for mans exit from Eden, so do men still believe it. Even with the first so called people, it was woman who made man do things. Without the female, men have no reason to be. True it is the same for women, for without men they have no reason to be.

A strange after thought. There is a species of fish, that when dominant male dies, the dominant female turns into a male to take it place. Female into male, just the way I think it happened way back in the dawn of life on this world.

Men and Women

Ever wonder why men have nipples? What use are they? Got to think that once upon a time there was just one sex and that sex was female. During the evolution of mammals, I guess it needed another sex to make it a viable life form. So if you start with the female and change it ever so slightly you get the male. Seems likely to me that it happened this way. No I have done no research on this, it is just a thought I had on why men have nipples.

Body hair, oh boy that is a fun thing, not! At least from where I am at. Why do I need to be growing hair on my ears? Why do I need to be growing what could become a second mustache out of my nose?  Hair growing on my nose, come on. My facial hair seems to be growing together all over my face, at this rate by the time reach 90 (if I do) I will lose my face behind the hair. And why do older women need to start growing mustaches and beards? Sorry thing for the fair sex to have to put up with. This is part of a gods plan for human kind? Mean joke if you ask me.  Why cause men to start turning into women and women into men?

Well I guess if all started out as one sex, it makes sense that if we live long enough, we sort of go back to being that one sex at death. If a god made a man first, what was the point of the nipple on him first? Just what was he going to do with them? Sorry keep slipping back into god and gods all of the time, but it does permeate all parts of our life and keeps getting in the way learning what life is all about. Got wonder just how much about the world we might know by now if religion hadn’t kept us in the dark for so long. If it still wasn’t trying to keep us in the dark now.

Borders

Filed under: A Tought — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 9:14 pm

Just what is a border? For some it is the imaginary line that separates countries. I say imaginary because there is nothing there to show where one country starts and another one ends. Yet we seem to believe that by being one side or the other of these imaginary lines that we are better than those on the other side of it. Unless you live on and island which does have a real border around it you are living in imaginary countries. Sure the world has agreed on where these imaginary lines are, but at what price were these borders made. And just why would one think by living in of these imaginary countries that they are better than the ones on the other side of the line? I guess it all goes back to people thinking that they alone are the chosen ones of the imaginary god they made up and therefore are the best there is.

Has always seemed strange to me that this concept goes all the way down to the streets we live on. My block is better than your block. The end results being the gangs we have all over the country thinking that their street gang is better than the one one on the next block and being willing to kill to prove it. What little minds humans have. Grown up human-beings acting like little children, when will it all end? I do blame religion for this happening in the world. After all if your god says you are the chosen people you are going to let the other people know that you are better than they are and you alone are right so everything the others do is wrong and bad. And you say this to the others who believe the same thing about themselves, just what is going to happen? Just like children they start to fight to prove who is really the best. Each believing that their god will favor them and of course the winner is always right for might makes right. If I beat you then I must be better, what a thought. Like playing king of the hill, who ever ends up on top is the winner.

Think about America. All men are created equal, right sure they are! It took this country a long time to try and make that statement true and even then it was not put into practice. To this day we still have the problem of men being equal, even with the president we now have in office, all men are not being treated as equals. All men are equal, but what about women? How long did it take for them to get the right to vote and have they ever gotten fair pay for the same work men do? Sure we passed a law to make it so, but law and practice are not the same thing. Even here we have made borders between things. And why you might ask? Well back to that imaginary god again. Yup lets see how that went, god made Adam, so man is first and most important. A note here, in the Holy Bible I happen to have in front of me it does not say that Eve was made from the rib of Adam, though this the story I grew up hearing, makes you wonder just what is the true religion when it changes with each sect making up the story as they want it be. Well going on with the rib story, we have woman be a lesser part of the story, an after thought even. As I remember the story, god saw that Adam was lonely and god decide that Adam needed a mate, gee guess watching all the animals in the world having one, I would want one too. After all what was the point of have a male sex organ if Adam had no one to use it with? Of course woman being less than man, it would have to the female who ate of the so called apple, after all a man wouldn’t do any wrong unless he was tempted by a woman, would he? Here’s a thought for you, god didn’t give us brains to really think with, it was Eve. Eve gave us knowledge, not god. Why would a god not want his children to know things?  What border was god afraid of that humans should know things? Without knowledge, mankind would have been no better than the rest of the animal kingdom.

So the god of our story starts us out with the I am better than you idea. His creations just keep up the idea, causing the first murder to happen, Cain killing Able so Able couldn’t be better than him or more favored. If the old testament is to believed, I am not sure being the chosen of god was a good thing. All the suffering the Jews went through as the chosen people just doesn’t seem to fair to me for a chosen people. So where and when did the idea of being better than others really come into practice? One just has to look at all of the religions starting points, there you will find that each of them sort of all say that their god created them first as the chosen ones. And I do mean all religions, even going back in time to the ones not in use today. Again I ask just why does mankind think they are so special? Why did they think the world was made for them? Why would mankind in this day and age still believe what they do about the gods?

When mankind grows up, borders will no longer be needed. No imaginary lines will be needed to separate us from each other. We need to get rid of the gods, get rid of the borders. One nation under god? What god is that? Whose god is that? Which god should we choose? Can’t have equality until that issue is resolved and the only real solution is no god at all. Can’t fight over what doesn’t exist, can we? When people realize that where they live is not really any better than any other place, we just might stop thinking our place is better and fighting to prove it. But having people who refuse to see the truth of the world will always hold us back from being able to grow up. The thought of me being better than you goes into almost every facet of our lives, rich people are better than poor people, upland people are better than lowland people, tall people are better than short people, jocks are better than (todays term) nerds. Strange that last one is, saying that having brains to think with is not cool, just another way of people wanting to keep from using their brains and think! Why is the world afraid of thinking and growing? Because the children are afraid of pissing off their so called Father of a god! I have to ask, what was the point of giving mankind the big brain to use if it was not meant to be used? Did the gods want to keep people ignorant just so they could on top? Just like so many leaders of this world do. World leaders have always wanted to keep the people ignorant of what is really happening, because when the people find out the truth, the leaders lose their jobs. Just look at your news and you see it happening everyday.

So lets grow up people and put and end to all of these borders we have. Or are you afraid to cross those borders?
