Most (damn near all) Western Homo sapiens sapiens (us) are whack jobs who can screw up an anvil with a rubber mallet! Both genders, including me!
I began my research into sexology about 15 years ago to find out what was going on in our bodies after an awesome sexual experience. It took 10 years just to find out the name: transcendent sex. I got all the way down to the genetic level in our bodies without answers until I threw love into the pot. Then it happened. It worked!
I looked at love with an engineer’s eye: a different perspective. Love is an energy spectrum impacting us at the genetic level. It at least impacts our epigenome, and who knows after that? Erotic love is apparently the most powerful because of the passion or amplitude of the energy we are transmitting. Twenty-five hundred years ago, the Greeks defined Eros, the god of erotic love, as one who endowed us with creative powers and the ability to bring order out of chaos. Around the time of Plato, Eros was diminished to the god of sexual pleasure.
One of the things I learned is sexology is very subjective. Everybody is out to promote their view. Me too. The difference I claim is, I focus on love—attributes and behaviors—along with our biology. I recognize there are no biological absolutes and we each have our own individual uniqueness. I admit you are your own best “sex expert,” once you divest yourself of 5,000 years of fear-based BS creating your epigenome and screwing up your genes. That is the tough part.
So, what is this war on women? Face it! We live in a greed based patriarchy. We are given “standards of normalcy” from patriarchal authority. What I have learned is that when I put anyone down, I am putting me down, which is where this authority wants me. I don’t belong down! Misogyny is not about putting women down. It is about keeping men down! The war on women is but a strategy in the war on love. Until we come together in love, recognizing what fantastic creatures we and others are in their own right, “they” win!
