I will investigate this a bit - to start with, there are yin and yang energies that are unrelated whatsoever to male or female bodies. So to
generalize all men as having yang energy, or all females as having yin energy is a terrible idea.
The yin and the yang energies attract each other because the yin (female) is the traditional nurturer, and the yang (male) is the traditional hunter
and brought linear thought to the table, as far as recently.
If you want to look at matriarchal societies, look at insects. Insects, let's take ants - male ants head out and use their spatial skills to search
through mazes, find food, and come home. They deposit the food at the colonial headquarters, where there is a single queen, who lays eggs and tends to
things there, and who knows, might answer questions and clarify things.
Our society today has the internet. It acts like a queen, while people head out into the world, find information (the food) and bring it back to the
As far as relationships go, people should have equal representation under the natural law. That means that both men and women should have equal say
and equal weight in a relationship.
One theory is that since the industrial evolution happened, women suddenly found themselves out of work because they didn't have to do the laundry,
cook, clean the house, etc. - because they were not able to find ways to contribute, they became seen as men as not necessary.
Now that men and women are gaining equal opportunities in the work place, we are seeing things emerge like gay and lesbian relationships,
transsexuals, and such - a lot of different variety. Stay-at-home-dads. Stay-at-home-moms.
Homes where both parents work. Homes where only one parent lives.
What I can't stress enough is equal representation under the law.
If there is a relationship where there is unequal representation between the two people involved, it is unhealthy. The causes for the inequality could
be societal, and if that is the case, then they should be examined and rectified.
This is beginning to sound like some kind of Caste system with Guilds and hopefully linear and lateral movement (between guilds, between castes).
Also, pairing up has been proven to be less psychologically stressful and healthier than having multiple partners. So that would probably still be a
good idea. I think it is important for a woman to respect a man and not cheat on him or expect him to let her have multiple partners without
considering his feelings.
Back to the Yin and Yang thing, there is the danger that some Yang (males) in female bodies might want to use feminism as an excuse to be players and
play Yin (females) in male bodies. This is still somewhat inconsiderate.
Your original claim that this is the age of the female - I don't think that it is wise to think that gives females the right to be inconsiderate
towards men, to begin with, or expect to take advantage of them. A major cornerstone in feminism philosophy is that women would be better leaders of
society than men because they would be more considerate.
Anyway let's see... I think there has been some kind of energy shift. I believe that Yin and Yang, or maybe male and female, have taken on slightly
different traits than before, quite honestly.
Something worth investigating, for sure - what traits are actually Yin and Yang traits and which traits are actually ones that switch between the two
as the current flows in one direction or the other?
