|>> Esp this: "the confounding, beautiful, mysterious, compassionate, inscrutable, unknowable, life-giving, sensual, wild, maternal energy that we men spend our whole lives trying to figure out and get close to." |
>> These principles are described as male and female according to biological function only, they are not there to describe the characteristics of individual women. For instance, Yin is female/receptive. This doesn't mean "Hey! That woman over there's some deep, receptive babe!", rather that, during sex/childbirth, the woman's body plays a receptive role - receiving and creating. I repeat: these principles are not some measure of female personality.
Well, jeez! Thanks for just attacking my views/thoughts by assuming that I could not conceive of any other applications of the themes in this issue than the ones I posted.
The ones I posted were the first things that came to mind in a few seconds -- sure, birth, creativity, the feminine energy applies to SO many other things. I'm aware of that.
But let's not go acting all condescending towards me just because I posted the simplest, most obvious ones. Yipes! Normally people aren't this quick to judge on this board. I'm just a heterosexual male, after all -- what's base is still part of human nature, or so said some dude named Shakespeare.
