I disagree. I think male is a very important part of life. The duality I feel is necessary. The person does not have to actually BE male or female - this is evident in homosexual couples. Each person has a male and female side, although I really do dislike grouping and generalizing, and giving names to something which is ultimately further reaching than the codes we give them.

There is a mistake, I feel, in putting too much deity into one gender over another, particularly if it undermines the other. That is what has been done to the Female, and I would hate to see it done to the Male. Otherwise, we'd all be sitting around with these amazing ideas, nurturing eachother, but nothing progressive would get done! On the other side, what is happening now is we are bulldozing forward, with little time to nurture and create. It's like ploughing the ground, without planting seeds.

It'll be all right in the end. If it's not all right, it's not the end.
