What Is A Woman?

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

What Is A Woman?

Postby barbarianhorde » Sat Apr 20, 2019 11:02 am

I think Pandora is very typically female in the traditional sense; either uncompromisingly judgmental and utterly unreasonable when she doesn't value, or completely in service to a purpose she does value.
I somehow seem to experience this as a true sort of femininity. Maybe I spent many lives as a knight dealing with kings daughters. But Im sure of my judgment here.

So here is a thread to investigate what a woman is, in terms other than her reproductive organs.

Maybe a good way to get this started is to collect profiles of what posters consider to be ideal women of this time.

I read 'woman' is literally Wife Of Man.
Thus the ideal woman is the ideal wife of man?

Perhaps that the reason why the term 'woman' is seldom use these days.

A displayer of empathy for others including that of total strangers
A free spirit and an inquisitive mind and a generous lover as well
Also a good listener who is slow to judgement less it is deserved

any attempt to understand women must involve an examination of the critical importance of their relationship to the poodle...

Sounds about right for the best women I know.
When it is deserved she will be very harsh in her judgment.

Since man isn't putting up much of a fight other than the Magnanimous 5 of course, I expect that the Woman will be in control in the coming centuries.
But right now she is definitely not in control.
She has the power, she's been given the power by the retreat of men from the foreground, but she doesn't seem to really know how to pick it up and wield it.

She needs to put her best foot forward and leave the heartless tarts in the dust. Feminism will be for her to slay.

Your ideal woman, used as an excuse to justify your own weaknesses and failings. She’s your kind of woman, a saint patroness of the weaklings. And like breeds more like.

If women or the females want to control the males, they should paint the whole world pink and that has an evolutionary basis.

Drunk Tank Pink got this nickname in the late 70’s after a psychiatric study asked 150 men to look at a pink or blue board then take an isometric strength test. Those who stared at the blue apparently amplified their own strength by doing so, while the others seemed weakened by gazing at pink.

I believe this has an evolutionary basis because what is striking within the males mind i.e. between the legs [internally] is pinkish [of various shades]. The color pink will soften the males mind to court the female while hardening a certain part.

This is the reason why within history it is well known and written, the most macho of men could 'easily' be led-by-the-nose by females who know how to take advantage of her 'pink' ace cards.

I believe most males at present are still being driven by 'pink' but some may have overcome those primal impulses.

Women seem in general bouncier, fluffier, more dramatic, and wild than men. They also seem more social, more pulled by societal ties, less independent. And they obsess over physical appearance. I've also noticed that women dress in more extravagant ways. I don't find it appealing, but some girls, shockingly, can actually be into things like Pokemon cards, so there are exceptions.

i think the ideal female is a sexy, nerdy chick. of the various capitalist/consumerist subcultures, i find these to be the most enticing and prepared for the future. i was hanging out with one such chick recently - a conversation got sparked up about music - and in trading favorite prog-metal bands, she told me her favorite one was affiliated with a comic book or something. there it was; this chick was a nerd. probably been to her share of conventions, too. but you can always tell nerds when they're in a group. the interaction consists almost entirely of clever, witty quips and exchanges. this demonstrates the importance of intellect to the nerd group... a behavior you don't observe as much in other contemporary subcultures. think of a typical scene in 'the big bang theory'. like that. but this isn't to say the conversation isn't dull, only that the group is well equipped, if ever encouraged, to advance beyond such parlance and actually sustain an interesting conversation if someone gives them the opportunity. other subcultures usually don't have this potential. nerds are basically primed and ready to become philosophers. they just need the proper stimulation.
