Power in femininity

There must be some type of strength in femininity that demands respect and alludes power– things typically seen “masculine.”

We can acknowledge that giving birth to girls is less desirable than giving birth to boys in many cultures throughout the world. There’s issues with property rights, name, ownerships and so on. Even among primates, social groups are dominated by bigger, stronger, older alpha males. We can’t strengthen the case for implementing female rights because it’s “unfair” and that we should be nice to females.
But how can one argue that the world isn’t about the survival of the fittest and the strongest? Evolution says so, the animal kingdom says so, history says so. So should women, who are highly capable in many dimensions, resort to being a subservient to men because they’re generally comparatively weaker in physical strength?

Could we argue that there’s not just something wrong with modern society, but history, evolution, and science in itself?

Should we try to make women manlier to achieve equality? Dress them more asexual, give them pills and make their muscles bigger? Clearly that’s ridiculous. The world is made up of attraction to one another; that’s what generates offspring within species.

If in fact you’re made up of equal strands of DNA of a man and a woman, how can you pin point which one is superior to another? Could it be that everything in our known universe is messed up, and that power doesn’t have to equate to something as fundamental as physical strength? That there’s immense power in other intangible things; so many things that you can name but feel disinclined to mention or vocalize because it will be resorted to as “girly” and laughable.

What is it about the world that it’s so hard to find, discern, and write about as to why femininity is strength? This is certainly a topic of interest for people who don’t feel weak due to their lack of physical strength. Those who want to reason with evolution and science.

Could there be something missing that can explain unseen dimensions, missing pieces that might explain why there’s so much power, firmness, and strength in femininity—which are essentially things that define masculinity?

  1. Hey! With a pen name such as yours, surely you know Shakti is a female power? Without which the Universe cannot survive. So, unfair as it is, forget us men, He (She?) knows best and made it so. 😀

    1. Good point, thanks for bringing it up. It’s interesting how ancient people formed theories about females being power itself, with the Vedas being thousands of years old, but I wonder if they were ever treated that superior in practice even at those times.
