  2. Excellent post. It’s fascinating, yet not insignificantly discomforting, though, to observe how, with this ever-rising tide of feminism and this era of the “modern woman”, male-female relations seem to be becoming more and more like those in the majority of the rest of the animal world: the female/queen reigns supreme, while the males exist primarily for the sole purpose of impregnating them — at the discretion of the female. It’s the males who, more often than not, have to develop elaborate songs and plumages and bright skin colours and gigantic bowers to compete for the favour of the female. The history of our (well, Aryan-descended, I guess) human societies may have had it the opposite, but in my experience at least, it’s always seemed that it’s the women who have the buyer’s market. And your post only confirms that swinging of the balance.

    This isn’t discomfort from the impowering of women — no, not at all. Rather, it’s discomfort from what seems to be a swing from one extreme to another. I’ve never believed that women should be subservient to men, and I don’t see why it should be the other way, either. I will neither claim that I need, or don’t need, a woman companion in my life. But I’m not afraid to say that I know, for quite sure, that that life would be far less rich without one than with.
