A comprehensive account of the negative effects male dominance has had on the human race in every aspect of life, and what could and should be done about it.
MEN CREATED GODS IN THEIR OWN IMAGE AND THEN TOLD EVERYONE WHO DIDN’T BELIEVE IN THE GODS THAT THEY WOULD GO TO HELL!
When the awareness of human beings finally evolved beyond the need for survival, food and sex they began to wonder about life and the world around them—how it all came about.
There was something in the evolving human mind that led them to assume that there must be unseen supernatural spirits or gods who created the human race and the world around them.
This longing for answers was obviously a common trait in the evolution of the human species as virtually all if not all groups of people—no matter how few they were or how isolated they were from each other—came up with a roster of spirit-gods to explain everything in their world—the sun, the weather, other life forms and so on.
Virtually all of these spirit-gods were created by men who gave the principal ones masculine traits, became their exclusive spokesmen and acted as their agents in establishing codes of conduct for their particular societies.
A primary theme in the doctrines established by the main surrogate male gods was the inherent superiority of males over females and the tenet that females were created to serve males. This alone was enough to prevent human beings from achieving their potential, but there were other fundamental elements in the male mindset that were equally damaging to the human species and the cultures that individual human groups created.
Male discrimination against females did not begin as a religious thing. It evolved naturally from the genetic programming of males, so when men created gods the gods naturally consigned women to an inferior status.
Males in virtually all species are genetically designed to be sexually aggressive, to impregnate as many females as possible and to take by force and keep exclusive sexual rights to as many females as possible.
This instinctive behavior in the earliest human males was buttressed by the fact that they recognized that females are inherently more sexually potent than males.
Females can engage in sex dozens of times a day whether they really want to or not because they don’t have to get a hard-on to do it and are not as exhausted as males are by the sexual climax—if they have one.
Males on the other hand, more often than not, achieve sexual climaxes in a matter of minutes because in earlier times engaging in sex left them susceptible to attack by competing males so they had to do it quickly.
Furthermore, most males, including younger ones, cannot repeat the sex act more than two or three times in rapid succession and still enjoy it. It not only loses its power to pleasure, it becomes painful.
And it was this sexual reality that resulted in early males doing everything in their power—physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually—to control women; to make them subservient not only sexually but in all other aspects of life.
While some primate species, like monkeys, can perform sexually several times a day day-after-day, even the most potent human male is satiated after three or four times at most. When a human male achieves a sexual climax it releases the sexual energy that has built up over a period of time, and it takes time for this energy to rebuild.
By the time the average male is in his late 30s this buildup of sexual energy generally requires two or three if not more days, during which his interest in sex is emotional instead of a physical need.
The hype that manufacturers use to sell drugs like Viagra—which artificially create erections of the male organ for an hour or more with the promise that men can have sexual intercourse several times a day day-after-day if so desired—is both misleading and dangerous.
The billion-dollar-a-year success of Viagra naturally inspired copycats—the hype of one of them, called Aspire 36 Plus, described as a fast-acting liquid, says that in addition to improving arousal it “enhances the entire experience from beginning to toe-curling end giving you both uninhibited satisfaction yet you’ll still be ready for round two, three or four!!!” The ads go on to say that it keeps on working, again and again, “reducing recovery time for your encore performance!”
Males who have a hard-on for more than an hour or so without having a climax quickly discover that it is extremely uncomfortable and sometimes very painful if the sexual stimulation from kissing or other activity that doesn’t result in a climax is intense and prolonged. Teenage boys who neck with girls for long periods without going all the way find this out soon enough.
Having a hard-on for several hours—as some of the sex drug makers admit—becomes a medical problem that requires the intervention of a doctor who can ad-minister [as you would expect!] another drug to counteract the sex drug.
In other words, it is not natural or actually possible for human males to become as sexually potent as females because nature was not and still is not that equitable. The make-up of male and female sexuality was designed to ensure that life goes on despite all of the dangers it presented—not to make males and females sexual equals.
Subsequent religious taboos, customs and laws designed to control and limit the sexual behavior of both males and females were to have incredible un-intentional results.
Generally, the only people who were exempt from these restrictions—or simply chose to ignore them—were the men in charge. Both lay and religious leaders have historically broken the laws they enacted and required common people to obey.
The cultural problems afflicting the present-day world at large are therefore not simple or isolated. Their partial or complete failures include all of the organizations that are associated with civilization—economic, educational, political, and social.
There are still some shining lights in American and other cultures but broadly speaking the various facets of the cultures are a mishmash of conflicting principles, faulty planning, incompetent execution and a number of cancerous elements that represent a serious threat to humanity and to the Earth.
As British philosopher Aldous Huxley once observed: “At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice, and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols.”
Before dealing with male-created gods and the male-made religions they spawned it is necessary to address the sexuality of homo sapiens because sex is one of the three key foundations of human behavior. And unfortunately for humanity, the preprogrammed sexual nature of males has played the key role in all cultures created since the appearance of human beings.
