I proudly bring all my insights available to me from being in the form woman. I began my life raised by a fierce ‘female-man’, and I was an impressive one myself for a time. I have activated and awakened Woman abilities and learnings, in numerous and diverse ceremonies, and at great time and money consuming expense!;) I consciously keep my female man tendencies in restraint and consciously keep activated my Womanly abilites, even though it is sometimes difficult, exhausting and unwelcomed. I do it because I know it is the way…
In an earlier writing I give reference to what I call ‘female man’ most prominent on Earth at this time in history, rather than ‘Woman’. I am choosing to begin my series on Man, Woman Explained, with this topic, to free up my use of the term.
We do not have Man and Woman on the planet at this time. We have male and female humans, and they are living all manner of roles, as there has been no guidance for many centuries.
A female man is found in the body or form of a woman, but is reduced in who she really is, and all that she may be capable of, as she is living only as that which a patriarchal society has determined her to be capable of.
There are reasons this has come about that I will expand on as I go into the series, but they are, in brief: the way political society was organised, with change being brought about only as people wanted- and were able to demonstrate- better treatment, respect, consideration as was being received by another.
Women demonstrated what they could do, that a man can do, and they are still doing it. We have yet to demonstrate what we do, specifically.
Our own abilities available to us as woman remain inactive, and are actually suppressed by some of our non specialties being drawn upon mostly…
Other cultures know that it is Woman who can determine /perceive consequence far more easily than Man. Her job is to determine for the future generations. In traditional native American Indian cultures it was woman who had the deciding vote on such matters, after the men spoke, to ensure future generations were considered, and for the long-term health possibility of the community. A year is 365 days, one after another, to a man. To woman it is 12 cycles.
Man’s job is to focus on the here and now. The problem solver, the protector, the competitor, attracted to the best for himself and his kin. Woman’s job is to consider all of it, and to then determine its effect, and the appropriate cause of action, provided by the man. She is the connector, the nurturer, the perceiver of consequence. Our bodies differ, our brains differ, our energy differs…
Such are our roles, such is our achievable balance and our perfect design.
In my life, chock-a-block with so many different experiences and different places, where I have had opportunity to do a range of things, and cross paths with many, I have learnt what I am able to do, because I am in the form of woman. As I have grown, my observations have always been on building my knowledge about our species.
I have observed and studied a) What else I can draw upon that the men around me can’t. b) What the men around me don’t seem to have available to them. & c) What the men around me do not seem to know exists. Or much of the current modern human world, for that matter!
A ‘lady’ and a ‘gentleman’ were other created historical constructs or ‘imaginings,’ changing natural behaviours and controlled by ‘etiquette’. Our society has formed from these British and European constructs. Other cultures are much less detached from Man and Woman roles, as their particular history has enabled them.
Margaret Thatcher was a superb female man. In “The Iron Lady’ film starring Meryl Streep, in one scene she plays Margaret Thatcher even saying something like “the problem with society is more people are feeling now instead of thinking.” She says “Thoughts are where it’s at. Thoughts turn into words, words turn into actions, actions turn into habits…”
The thing is, that was a HUGE error of the time. It is feelings that govern our thoughts. Feelings determine our thoughts. Woman is the feeling specialist, where Man is the thinking specialist. Sure we can do both these things, but we are better suited for one or the other, as is our design!
When I am needing to go into my mind, in answer to a man’s question perhaps, as he would do to another man, I can feel myself reducing my ability as a woman. I can feel myself cutting off from what else I have available to me.
When I drive, I am aware I lose 10-15% focus when I am bleeding, as I am a cyclic being and I differ day by day within a month, as is my design. Man is the day by day by day one of us, so he can do what needs doing, see around corners;) act fast and now. He cannot make the best decision for everyone on his own, he is not designed to. He cannot consider many things at once as his brain specialises on focussing, and is compartmentalized in structure.
A woman’s brain has many more connections going on. Man’s job is to focus, woman’s job is to connect. Of course we can do both of these things, but we do one better than the other. When we do only one thing…we do it better.
We each specialise, we each do somethings better than the other, so that when we come together, we are even better than if we were our own.’
History made us need to do what we could, to better our situation then. Our ancestors did not have another choice. What was done then, was the best and only thing available at the time. The problem is only that we have not had an opportunity to correct it yet.
