Those clips you put up do not express to me what you say they do.
Without going into a deep detailed analyzation of each one,
-Some express that the woman singing is picky, or highly selective. (like Twains song)
That is something that even in animals, females do better to be selective with choosing mates for reproduction.
-Some express the excitement of the flow between observer and observed, that all stage performers know, and that woman are often more intensely aware
of. I do not see how you took that to mean only men. Though it is linked to having a certain power to have an impact of some sort upon others. This is
a HUMAN desire, not at all of one gender or another. Men write songs about their own drive and enjoyment in being noticed and having an impact upon
There are some women, depending upon where they are located, as well as their social and economic status,
that feel oppressed by a male dominated community in very concrete ways.
In situations of this type, the less powerful person will often try to find a certain amount of peace with themselves in envisioning a sort of power
that is not evident or concrete. Like witchcraft...or psychic powers.
I currently hold the opinion that in many cases they often DO develop a certain amount of covert power, such as the ability to covertly emotionally
In those cases, you'd have to really decide what you consider as more important? overt power, or covert?
Would you rather:
-have your female mate be the one working and financially supporting you, with the right to make most big choices and that you have to ask before you
decide to do things.... and you being very good at influencing her mood and decisions through less straightforward ways (you know if you hand her a
beer and give her a footrub when she gets home, that will impact her decisions and behavior).
-Or have it the other way around- you have more power that everyone sees and that you both sort of act out, but she has a sort of indirect power to
make you feel certain ways or see things from certain angles.
Some of my point with that little question (because they are not the only choices, just two possible ones)
Is that all humans have a draw towards power... there is nothing you can do to change that. Even those who claim and believe they don't, will find
themselves drawn to being near someone that does (like the spiritual warriors against ego who happen to feel drawn to powerful gurus).
In terms of power games, sometimes those who seem to be in power aren't really, those who claim to be aren't; those who claim not to be really are.
There are all kinds of women out there. The ones that are bragging about having power over others are often the ones that do not actually have any in
real life. Brittney Spears for chissakes. How powerful over her life do you assume she has really been?? She has been a marrionette for powerful
people since she was a child! If it makes her feel better to tell herself that inbetween being a whore for record labels and producers, she has
moments of being powerful when she is exciting a crowd of observers, who cares? The poor thing has to go back to her real life when she walks off the
stage and reality sets in again.
