Patriarchy: An Insidious System!

Patriarchy:  An Insidious System

Question:  "When did doing something "like a girl" become an insult?"  --Always #likeagirl

Question: How insidious is patriarchy?

Answer:  
(a)  "A girl's confidence plummets during puberty [also known as the formative years in a girl's life, and we all know the crucial importance of confidence in attaining your life's goals, thus in becoming more human]!"

(b)  Women, with the same professional skills as men, earn way less money in their jobs, careers, on the average.

(c)  With the gender binary system, women are socialized to 
be the "weaker sex," the "inferior" sex, the "less-human" sex.

(d)  With the gender binary system, men are socialized to be the "strong" sex, the "superior" sex, the "more-human" sex.

(e)  Sexual assaults on women around the world continue to be a major problem facing our women.

(f)  Homophobia keeps patriarchal men trapped inside the "man box," for fear of being treated like we treat our women.

(g)  Patriarchal men are socialized to disconnect from their emotions, feelings, or humanity, for vulnerability is believed to be weakness or "girly."

(h)  If I cannot feel my own emotions as a man, a patriarchal man, then it follows unnaturally, that I cannot identify or empathize with your, the other's emotions, feelings, or humanity.

(i)  1 out 5 women, in the USA, say they have been sexually assaulted sometime in their lives."  --Colin Stokes from "How Movies Teach Manhood"

My Wish Of Love

My Wish Of Love


To disappear into
my lover's 
body and soul
into a circle 
of being
of true love
of Oneness!

My Soul's Decrees

My Soul's Decrees

Let my heart remember you
with fond memories 
each night to come.
My arms' muscles to memorize
your warm touches 
with ethos and pathos.

Let my mind like an artist
to paint a thousand tableaus
of us in love true
for centuries to come.

Let my nose to smell
your perfume sweet and 
your natural, feminine scent
after a long day's work
 in the Summer of time.

Let my voice to utter
the I-love-yous till
the end of time and beyond--
in protest and defiance.

Thus, my soul has decreed,
my darling Fab Fabie.

Suns-set, Suns-rise

Suns-set, Suns-rise

My suns-set
when she closes
her eyes, and 
my suns-rise
when she opens
her eyes, then.
Truly,
my universe
of love true
is within
her eyes' light.

A Garden Of You

A Garden Of You

My Fab Fabie,
A garden of You
Grows inside my heart
 And needs You as 

The Farmer to water
Its lovely flowers
And cultivate the good
And bad to wholeness
Or bountiful harvest
Of our love true.

A Fab's Journey

A Fab's Journey

My heart is on
a  Fab's journey,
for her end is my beginning
and my beginning's her end.

So soulfully entwined are we,
from beginning to end
anew from end to beginning
in circles of light and darkness.

Free Your Will

Free Your Will

Free your will, men,
With wings of wisdom 
And courage!
To migrate beyond
(Emotionally forward)
Our solar system
Where gender binary
As an insidious system
Exists no longer.

",,,the silence of our friends." --Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"...the silence of our friends."
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"In the end what will hurt most is NOT the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
--Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

...so stand against--with your words, actions, body, heart, and soul--homophobia, patriarchy, misogyny, lesbophobia, transphobia, racism, xenophobia, and all other forms of hatred, which make us, all, less-human, for to hate the other is to hate oneself, truly.

She's Fab

She's Fab

he (with a small "h," 
unable to tap into his Larger "H")
 used to "own" Her
In his mind of a weak man
Who tries to control
his outer world, instead
Of his inner being.

She used to allow 
him to believe he was
In ownership of Her inner Womanhood,
For She was trying to survive
An insidious man's world.

But She's Fab;
Suffered through her enslavement
(To wonderful, inner, Womanhood wonderful)
Till Her inner world started
To supplant Her outer's,
Thus driving him to full male madness.

A Lover's Fear

A Lover's Fear

"Tell me your fears, lover of mine,
and I'll listen, understand and empathize."
She told her lover.

"But tell me your fibs, 
and I'll live in fear of the next one,
till I'll no longer care."
She reprimanded her lover sternly.

An Epiphany #11 (Blind And Unforgiving Systems)


An Epiphany #11
(Blind And Unforgiving Systems)

I believe the reason why we need to have more empathy for human beings in position of external power is:  they are working within/with a human system which is imperfect--the individual human being, though, is always above systems, thus always noble.

By the time a politician, for example, comes into external power, he inherits a system which has been in place long before--centuries before in some cases--he gets elected, and systems, by their man-made nature, are in place to keep the status quo, to keep order, to keep tradition or culture, to keep a linear or circular continuity, which our human brain loves, and interprets as orderly, and as byproduct a false equilibrium and a state of the known is reached--the sun-always-rises-in-the-East syndrome, I call it.

We fear the unknown so much that we are willing to give our human freedom, thus freewill, away to systems to control, and manipulate our lives into a false known series of man-made events, experiences that duplicate and replicate themselves over and over again to give us the illusion of order, continuity, and false safety from any unknowns in this scary universe we inhabit, forlorn, without gods or/and goddesses; therefore, our man-made systems have usurped the throne of an omnipotent, omnipresent goddess, to leave us in the all-too-powerful hands of blind, and unforgiving, man-made systems. 

Systems be NOT proud! Our noble Human Nature shall dethrone you, by-and-by.
