The Gentle Sex
Now it's true that most women are much less prone to violence and crimes despite numerous reported cases of female abuse at homes and their slap-happy, knee-in-the-groin urges. But then again, I've seen plenty of vindictive angry women that mete out nasty revenge, I've seen passive-aggressive women that emotionally abuse their family for decades, I've heard and witnessed endless horror stories about nasty divorces with wives that nurture their grudges and inflict punishment on their ex-husbands for years, I've talked with Dominatrixes and it's pretty obvious that they are exponentially more cruel and merciless than their male counterparts. And then there are the infamous news stories like the one where a woman carefully planned an attack on a pregnant lady, ripped out the baby and claimed it as her own.
Turns out this kind of thing happened at least six times already.
'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned' isn't a good tag-line for a movie about female revenge - it's reality. Women may not get physical often, but their revenge and abuse is even more devastating and devious than men's. Unfortunately, the law only defines male-oriented crimes as punishable and isn't subtle enough to handle the female needles and backstage manipulations.
The important question however is how can all this be compatible with the female gentleness we all know so well?
The answer, in my eyes, is simple: As I mentioned in a previous post, the same emotions and sensitivity that make the woman into what she is, can easily backfire and push her to the other extreme. A woman is a gentle creature until she is twisted by circumstance and turned into a monster. The same driving sensitivity that felt others' pain turns towards inner pain and humiliation to the point where basic morals and sanity are eclipsed. Violent women are not cold psychotics; their inner wounds keep the fires burning for years and their violence is always personal.
While it may be fair to say that men drive women to this often, the same can be said about women being trouble-makers and driving men to violence and no-one but Feminazis would honestly claim that men are always to blame.
So are women relatively much gentler creatures? Yes. Are they less prone to violence and crime? Yes. Are they always gentle? Definitely not. Are women more stable and reliable? Obviously not. When they commit violence, is it gentler in nature? Absolutely not - they are much more extreme when it comes to pain and usually go at it for much longer.
Conclusion: Female gentleness is a myth and the ideal of a matriarchical society is about as imbecilic and illogical as the argument that intelligent life-forms are inherently compassionate. I don't need to live in a feministic utopia to know that women are only moral and gentle when they're in the mood.
