It seems that the world hates women – including women themselves.
To understand that this statement is not an exaggeration, one would not have to look far. Our surroundings are replete with such examples.
Why does man – the creature with strength, brains, and courage have to hate a woman, who, apparently is weak, puny and non confrontational.
Everyday, there is some news about women being subjected to oppression.
Every corner of the world is infected with this female-phobia. Not just poor Asian Nations, but Europe and America as well. Women’s freedom is still a relatively new idea there.
So, what is it, about this creature with a beautiful soft voice and timid countenance that invites so much wrath and repulsion the world over?
It is the power of denial (not the river in Egypt).
Women have this singular power of denial that brings man to his knees, begging, pleading, frustrated and angry.
Man is used to having his way, he goes where he wishes to, he hunts what he wants, he is the temple priest and not some woman because his relations with God are apparently better.
He can play various sports because he is the one who is stronger. He can participate in the war because he doesn’t lose his appetite over a little blood and gore. He is EVERYTHING.
But, a man also needs to have sex – for his physical, mental and psychological well being and his sanity as well. That – he cannot do by himself. In that act, he needs the consent of a woman. Damn! He was almost invincible!
Deeply seated within the mind of a man is his fear of rejection. This fear is further accentuated by a woman’s power of selection. If you look in mother nature, you will see that the female selects, while the male competes to stand out in order to be selected.
This is not very different in our world, as well, if you observe carefully. The deepest fear of a man is being told that he is not good enough, that he is inadequate. He fears the moment when a woman says, “I refuse to engage in copulation with you”.
His ego is shattered and he suffers badly. It is out of this fear that man created systems that were in his favour. He created traditions that made sure the woman was suppressed and that she could never say no to his advances.
It is this fear that makes old jerks fear jeans, westernisation, mobile phones, porn, free thought, computer and et al.
A man loves to be in control. A woman snatches this control in the most important department – “the bedroom”. The moment she says, “Not tonight. Big headache”, man realises he has been done in.
Hence, the hatred.
