In Response To: superiority is indeed an ugly connotation... (discipleofmaat)
"and perhaps we are sensitive to that word only because we have been proliferated with and enjoy the privileges of western society's pedestaling of males above female. Also, the 'superiority' word bothers our comfort levels, especially in light of the implementations of white/male supremacy. So this rejection of that term is understandable."
Honestly brothahman, it has nothing to do with the pale-skinned understanding of things. Its just my slowness of seeing if this is BALANCE or what u call SUPERIORITY. WHICH IS IT? Balance & superiority are different not true? is it both?THIS is the kwestyon.
"The masculine/male 'serves' the feminine/female but NOT in a subordinate hierarchical manner. There is no example whatsoever to the contrary except for man-made implementations."
Mmmmm, dag nile-chile, i gotta agree here, becuz like i say, on a basic level, the animal kingdom does show this (some male species of insects die after they mate with the queen/female). In our case, we are more 'complex', so its on a different level/plane. Theres nothing wrong with the male being the head of the house, but only if the wombman agrees. The Godess brings forth the God on the throne, etc.
"Please don't make me give more examples, LOL."
Gosh, so all i did was come back full circle and eat my own words huh lol. guess i'll stick to hungryman dinners instead...
P.s- Im putting this out there, spiritually speaking, that BOTH Masculine and Femi-nine energies take on the role of the other ie. active/masculine & passive/femi-nine (then the passive becomes active and so on...)PEACEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE & LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
