Patriarchy or Matriarchy

1 year, 11 months ago

I believe we as a species have become too patriarchal, however I would like to hear others opinions on the subject. What do you think is the right balance of male vs. female energy in a relationship. What I mean by this is the stereotypical male persona is fairly rigid, stubborn, aggressive, and protective while the female persona is more nurturing, loving, emotional, etc. Also what do you believe makes a good emotional/physical relationship and why do you think this? Also if you don’t agree with the definition of the male and female persona give me your take on them! :-)

Neither. These labels don’t exist unless we allow them to, and neither really encompasses what a true ideal would be.

And as for what makes an appropriate relationship between two partners, the dynamics change so drastically depending on the personalities and, as a result, a different balance is required for each ideal partnership. Personally, I’m not super dominant so a girl with a little gusto would be totally fine by me. Some girls want a macho guy and prefer to be submissive.

We are conditioned to create a Patriarchy because this is how it has been for as long as civilization has been around. However, behind every great man, there was a woman, and the limitations placed on females in regards to education, social and political power were a direct result of the oppression from the “male persona.”
I think we are coming into an age where the patriarchy will take a significant hit while the matriarchy makes its long awaited debut. Human kind has not seen the likes of women in charge or even on the radar as prevalent as they are today, which leads to many stereotypical and chauvinistic responses to said upraising.

As far as the relationships between people, there is no way to tell, everyone is different. That’s sort of a cop out answer but what ev, that’s what I believe.
