    SingleLiving just asked this question: Are Women Naturally Submissive?And this made me think of the girls I'd seen that gradually lost this stamina and authority  they used to have.I think it's easy to buy into the tenets of a society that considers women as the Other, as Simone...

    We Need to Take Back Our Power

    I believe our first step in regaining our power is to open our eyes and see all that we have become lax about. We have taken that which should be most sacred and private and put it all to market. If it can be bought and sold it is no longer sacred. We have seen the misuse and...

    This Makes Me So Angry

      It disgusts and appalls me to no end that we live in a society that treats women so badly. That we have to have disadvantages just because we're female. That we suffer through childbirth and discrimination. That a 24 year old man can knock up a 16 year old and then...

    I Am

     Ok, so I like the way it was put: Women give men way too much power over them. This is  about women enhancing their own expectations, and then living up to them. This is about being able to say I AM, and, er what-was-it, yeah, 'Yes, we can'. I am what i am...

    Should Be 50/5

    Decisions need to be 50/50.  I have a hard time listening to friends whose husbands, boyfriends, significant others, etc. control them way too much, tell them what to do, etc.   Guys say they will never do these things again -- they do.  I think as...

    Men Have Way to Much Power

      Glad I found this group I couldn’t agree more. You would be surprised at the number of women who talk about feeling “safe and protected” by men they are with. Do these women even know wtf they are saying? If I go out with a woman I might feel happy to be...

    For The Last Time

    Tonight I have given my power away for the last time! I've allowed him to provoke me to go to a vengeful place. I've allowed him to arise in me such anger that I spoke violent words. I allowed him to make me set my pride aside and call him repeatedly knowing he doesn't want...

    And I've Been Recently Thinking About

    all those women who much contributed to humankind. What I found? 80% of them - including Marie Curie who I much like - contributed IN THE MEN'S WAYS AND STYLES OF THINKING AND APPROACH - losing THEIR INNER FEMININE SELF AND POWERS SO THEY CAN ONLY "SATISFY" THE...

    Most Women

    are so stupid regarding men that I simply cannot find the proper words to say how much. Most women really not only give men way too much "power" over them - but also almost completely lose what they are when they are in any kind of a relationship with a man. ...

    I Guess So...

    Do a degree, yes I do believe that women give men too much power over them. And I don't think it is the majority, but I still think there is too much in the way of power being held against them. I am not sure if it is wholly men's fault though (though I do understand we are the...
