THE FEMALE IN A MALE-DOMINATED SOCIETY



PROMISE OF A NEW DAY:
THE FEMALE IN A MALE-DOMINATED SOCIETY


By
Dmitri Tobias Lessy




Today the female gender of the species are living in a relatively tolerable condition of a so-called civilized society. Since the beginning of time they have been oppressed, subordinated, reduced and pre-conditioned to their basic sexual and reproductive functions either by another fellow human beings or by God/s even to this very day.

Many of us might think that we have come a long way since then. Many of us would like to believe that society has grown more civilized in terms of its attitude towards the female gender of the species. But if you should look into the matter further, you would realize that society members are not at all being more just under the great reign of civilization but rather it learns how to be more "polite" and/or more "acceptable" and/or more "politically and legally correct" to women because otherwise they will be subjected to social and/or criminal and/or religious sanctions set forth by society (which, if I may add, are not really designed for the best interest of the female gender of the species).

We should learn to realize that civilization, as we know it, is built on the expense of the female gender of the species. In a male-dominated society, the female gender of the species are not given the chance to develop their potentials to the fullest for the best interest of humanity but rather they are reduced and pre-conditioned to their basic sexual and reproductive functions. As it develops, civilization is supported by the many pillars of civilization (all of which are not for the best interest of the female gender of the species) which include economics, politics, religions/traditions, social discourse and last, but not least, the concept of binding a female to a state of total dependency to her male counterpart in the bondage of marriage. So long as civilization works properly it can maintain its harmonious existence (regardless of the fact whether or not such harmonious existence is made for the best interest of the female gender of the species). However, such a fragile harmonious existence can not maintain itself should one or more of those pillars is/are not functioning correctly (what is correct according to society regardless whether or not it/they is/are for the best interest of the female gender of the species), and society members no longer has any reason to "pretend" to be more polite and/or more acceptable and/or more politically and legally correct due to many reasons, amongst which are:

1. Lack of more gender sensitive type of laws/traditions, resulted in the un-acknowledgement of marital rape, domestic violence, etc.

2. Lack of law supremacy and respect to life due to a state of war or other hostile situations, resulted in the female gender of the species being exposed to gender-based inhuman acts such as rape, torture and murder.

3. Lack of the presence of others to impose social or criminal sanctions as set forth by laws/traditions, resulted in the female gender of the species being exposed to extreme gender-based gender-degrading hostile environment which could happen to this very day in their own homes. This could happen simply when a female walks across a lonely street in the middle of the night (or in a day time for that matter), or a female being considerably un-subservient to her male counterpart in the bondage of marriage. Such conditions include sexual harassment, rape and marital rape, domestic violence and other gender-based gender-degrading acts which lead to the female gender of the species being reduced and pre-conditioned to their basic sexual and reproductive functions.

4. A collapse in economic, political, social or all together on domestic and/or national scale resulted in the condition as described in point 1 and 2.

5. Pre-conditioned state of subordinations of the female gender of the species, both the acceptable and the un-acceptable (which vary in different parts of the worlds).

6. And so on.

Once civilization is no longer working properly due to one or more or all of the above causes, the female gender of the species shall once again find themselves helplessly subjected to extreme basic gender-based, gender-degrading, male dominant aggressive attitude and reduced to their basic sexual and reproductive functions without having been given the chance to develop all of her potentials to the fullest for the best interest of humanity; the same condition that they have faced for thousands of years.

We must put an end to this. We must raise our voice in unison. Together we can bring about once again the glory of our race.

Those who believe in equality please unite.
