Divine Male Dominance?

In my last article, I briefly addressed the drive to conquer that masculine men often feel. I have received quite a bit of interest in this perspective; most coming from a place of being intrigued to know more, plus a few who misinterpret it to mean conquering a woman. With exception, I do not believe that women want to be conquered or dominated… But we do often take great pleasure in bearing witness to a man’s path to self-mastery through dominating his own life and conquering challenges even when we might be one of those challenges. It is how we ascertain the strength of a man. While we don’t seek perfection, in seeking out that perfect match for us (most of us are evolved enough to realize that the knight on the white horse is a dangerous myth), we are captivated by a man who can show his vitality, endurance and mastery – in some aspect of life. We often feel freer to open to a man when we have evidence that he has the power within him to protect the softest, most vulnerable parts of us. We are more willing to soften to him and to let him into the most vulnerable depths of our heart, body and soul when we feel the full presence of his capable masculine energy. We are more ready to give the best of our self when we have some indication that we can trust that our best will be received with a man’s own self-confidence that he can handle it with the care and reverence that it requires. We are more willing to receive his mastery when we are given access to the experience of the meaningful impact he can have in his own world.

So all you masculine, manly MEN, don’t be afraid to conquer the world – your world, not ours ;)… And women when you witness the perpetual unfurling of his greatness as he reveals his brand of power to you, be open to allowing him the space to achieve his maximum potential – there is where you will find his ultimate gifts to you.

    When our son was 4 and his sister was 7, we had a little girl, about 6 years old, visiting with us one afternoon. The 3 children were sitting in the grass together and the girls were chatting with each other. At 4 years old, when my son realized that the girls were bonding, but he wasn’t getting any attention from them, he got up from his spot in the grass next to our visitor. Then without a word, he lay prone in the grass directly in front of the little girl and proceeded to do pushups! On he went until she couldn’t help but notice him, then he got up and walked away very pleased with himself. He knew what it felt to conquer at 4 years old.

    Your last paragraph reveals the problem:

    “So all you masculine, manly MEN, don’t be afraid to conquer the world – your world, not ours ;)… And women when you witness the perpetual unfurling of his greatness as he reveals his brand of power to you, be open to allowing him the space to achieve his maximum potential – there is where you will find his ultimate gifts to you.”

    Men are created to dominate, that is, to rule what is ours. What is there to rule if the ‘she’ is not in our ‘kingdom’? How the heck can anyone decry the common sense of the anatomical complement of the she for the he? Sexual intercourse is absolutely the ultimate act of a man dominating his woman. This has been known for all of human existence and how each man needs his woman. He needs her and she needs to be needed by him. The truth of this is the now female-lamented phenomena where young men seem adrift with no purpose and no direction. The collective and resounding lower octave ‘duh’ you should be hearing is from society’s men. And what men also absolutely know is that without men, women will cease to exist.

    The foolish feminists fantasy is that women don’t need men when, in fact, everything that women enjoy, including the freedom to work and vote, come from men. The blanket security you feel when in your apartment/house, at the store, at work, out on the town with friends is all brought to you by men who make it safe for you. The knowledge that you can buy what you want at your nearby grocery store without gratitude to men is proof that women have lost their way, yet think they know where they are going while men watch in amazed horror for the plight of femininity and society as a whole.

    This leads me to the problem in your last paragraph. For manly masculine men to boldly exert their maleness to dominate, the woman must be at his side in his kingdom thankful that her man, in fact, is the ruling king. To the degree that she is dependent on him, then for him is life found worth living. No amount of foolish feminist fantasies will change that very fact.
