The flamboyancy of Women.

Image result for A women in sexual joy

 

Today is International Women’s Day. There will be all sorts of commentary and publicity on this day of celebrating being a woman. It can’t be easy at times and with this special day comes the painful truth that being a woman can be very dangerous. It can be outright precarious during relationships with man.  In Australia some 350 or 450 cases of domestic violence is reported to the police daily. At least once a week a woman gets murdered with the ex or present partner in most cases responsible. Emotional abuse is also very common. Most women go through life having experienced some type of abuse which is mainly perpetrated by the male.

The way forward seems to lay in educating the young to have respect for each other and that boys and girls be allowed to grow up as children before reaching their teens and adulthood. Some experts believe that co-educational education is a good start. I personally feel separating the sexes at school age is silly. Girls, by and large outperform boys, yet, when growing into adults for one reason or the other the jobs get taken over by men when it comes to employment. So much for equal opportunity!

We all know or should know that women rank 9 out of 10 in many areas with most men a mere 6 or7 out of 10. One wonders why that is so. We know that at times,  and honest men looking inside themselves might agree, one can get a bit intimidated by strong women. Somehow there is this confusion that strength is the sole domain of men. None is better demonstrated more than on the sexual side of things. Men might well grow up believing that their prowess in bed is somehow Tarzan-like and that women are the submitters to their often 5 minute skill of up and down male love mastery. Of course in many cases that is not so.

The flamboyancy of the female in full flight during an episode of considerate sex is something to behold. I would not be surprised that many a man feels a bit intimidated by the force and honesty of this female sexual prowess. Compared with the male it is the climbing of Mount Everest while with man it is a kind of topping a wombat’s burrow.

So, with the International Day of Women let’s be mindful that women are terrific lovers, friends and companions.

“International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights. After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually.” Wikipedia

    Thank you for your very positive attitude to strong women. So many men are terrified by them.

      Women have always been strong and the tide is turning. In my youth it was my mother who pulled us through the hard times with six kids to rear with little help from Dad who worked, brought in the money, but once home would settle in the comfy chair and just smoke.
      Twice a year he would make pancakes and that would be it.

        So good that you took that as a good example. In my own life I have come across men who grew up in similar situations who became deeply resentful of their mothers being stronger than their fathers.

    Well of it were not for women there would be no furthering of the species for sure. Women are beginning to be make themselves heard in a powerful way and I reckon that is a good thing.

    Thank you, so much, for this, Gerard!
    I am so grateful to have some wonderful women in my life…and that includes my daughter, my daughter-in-law, sisters, aunts, friends, etc. I salute them on International Women’s Day and every day!
    I salute Helvi, too!
    HUGS!!! 🙂

      Helvi is from Finland where the balance between the sexes is far more equal. This is nothing new and dates back to a history of both sexes feeling responsible for the welfare of family and community. There is not that divide that seems to be the case in many other countries.

    Good post, Gerard!
    And I’m going to start using “topping a wombat’s burrow” in conversation.

    The late Leonard Cohen seems to agree with you: “I wish the women would hurry up and take over. It’s going to happen so let’s get it over with. Then we can finally recognize that women really are the minds and the force that holds everything together; and men really are gossips and artists. Then we could get about our childish work and they could keep the world going. I really am for the matriarchy.”

      It’s been a long time coming. But there are men that would not mind for a matriarchy to become the norm. The divide between what is masculine and feminine is deliberately maintained by those that seek to exploit it.
      All that rugby and rolling around by grown men. Unbelievable and childish. Yet they are seen as the ultimate expression of masculinity. And then all that warring and fighting. Who wants that?
      A typical example is the offer by NZ’s PM, (a female), to accept 150 refugees yearly from Manus and Nauru.
      This offer is stubbornly refused by our PM , (a male), to the detriment of the lives of hundreds of refugees. A stark difference between the sexes.
      I hope to live to see the day a female will come to power once again. The previous female PM, Julia Gillard was bullied relentlessly by males. Yet, she was one of the best.

    I agree with most of above but there are differences and that must not be forgotten. Men can keep a secrete, al lot of women can’t.
    Most women can hold in a fart, most men can’t. Etc

      Yes, Are women also more moral,Curt? Our PM Morrison is a devout church going man but at the same time he sees no moral dilemma or makes a distinction when dealing with refugees and children.

        I don’t know the answer to your first question, Gerard. In terms of overall numbers, it certainly seems that more men than women are morally challenged. As for Morrison, I am not convinced that there is much of a correlation between how religious a person is and how good he or she is. –Curt

        Thank yo, Gerard…it was loosly based on an aunt of mine who DID lose her child after a misscarriage in the exact circumstances at that very bridge there in the story…fo course, she didn’t throw herself into the raging torrent and lived to have more children….But she too was a good-looker and a sought after woman in the district in her younger days..
        But I want to create a mythology-like feeling around this district in the Mallee…and I have written several stories around such things…and I have placed them mostly in the fifties of last century, as that is a time when labour was more intense out here in the bush and more people meant more interactions and therefore more interesting “events”… it allows one to “smudge” the picture of those times with a more soft “sepia-like” imagery….

    I grew up in a malnly women society and they were not always friendly. The men were off to war and women had to run the show.

    Businesses run with women on equal basis as men are proven to be more profitable. I don’t know if making war would be less with women in charge. I don’t think they enjoy getting killed as much as men seem to enjoy it.

    Ode to Women’s beauty.

    Speechless and numb, I gazed on her beauty there,
    Her limbs, her hands, her soft flowing hair.
    Her voice the whisper of an angel’s prayer..
    SHE..roamed her eyes over the banquet fair,
    The roasts, the salads, the fruits so rare,
    And of my adoration, just so….au contraire.
    “There is so much beauty before us here ,
    It is so hard to decide….you tell me, my dear,”..
    She said..”What to you is the most desirous fare?”
