Inferiority Complex
Womb Envy vs. Penis Envy

Okay, I want to talk about something that no one seems eager to discuss…male inferiority. No matter where we look in our world, macho males feel insecure. Why?

The first response from males is that they don’t feel inferior to women. Ask Donald the Dumb. Women admire him, because his sex organ is large. He can prove it by the size of his hands. Let’s forget, for a while, our fake president and his fake machismo.

Males dominate and will fight to maintain power and control over women. They will retaliate if threatened by women. It has been that way since the beginning of time or at least since the time of homo sapiens. Look at the various levels of government in the US.

What is the percentage of males in Congress…75%, percentage of males as governors…91%, percentage of male mayors of cities over 30,000…78%, percentage of male mayors of the 100 largest cities…77%, percentage of male CEOs in the Fortune 500 companies…95.2%, percentage of male college presidents and/or professors…56%, percentage of male firefighters…96%, and the percentage of male police officers…88%. Am I the only one that can see the obvious? We live in an extremely sexist world.

Males consciously and/or sub-consciously want to stay on the top due to inferiority. What is it that rattles male vis-à-vis females? It is simple. Males can’t create life. Women can. Females have usurped the role of some sort of human divinity. You know, God created everything, and he rested on the seventh day. They have the ability not only to create life but to nourish it. In addition, they will care for their offspring until the child can live on his or her own. Since this issue is tied to deities, let’s move to religions.

What is the percentage of ordained male clergy in America? 79%. Interestingly, I was teaching an online class recently, which dealt with Jainism, a spinoff of Hinduism. The central tenet of Jainism is ahimsa, which means do no harm. Jains believe that they can’t harm anything.

At the beginning of the week, I mentioned an old Dick Clark video, which I can’t find anymore. Clark is cutting in and out on Michael Jackson singing Ben. I asked the class if they could find that really old video for me. Additionally, I wanted to know who Ben was. I also stated that we would revisit Ben during the week.

The missing video was never found, but one of my students found a part of the old video that had one cameo of Clark cutting into MJ singing Ben.

During the week in both of my classes, nearly everyone mentioned their admiration for ahimsa.

This is one of my replies to a student.

I have no issue with ahimsa per se. Not harming is a nice idea except for two items. One is that Jainism has an issue with sexism. Women are problematic. They cause attachments, etc. Therefore, women are to be avoided. Therefore, ahimsa is hurting half the population of Jains.

At another level, the Black Death, which killed 100-200 million people in Europe and Eurasia from 1347-1351 in 4 years, millions upon millions died due to Ben's forebears, and the insects that they carried.  The net result of ahimsa was harming much of Europe and Eurasia.

Beyond the issue of sexism and others being harmed do to insects and rats is the question, who said so? Who made the decision to avoid women? Men.

Black Death in Europe

I came across an essay, How Womb Envy Has Caused Men to Control Women’s Bodies. The articles looked at sexism over the centuries. It was excellent and to the point. It included people like Henry VIII, Sigmund Freud, Monty Python's Life of Brian, Junior, Karen Horney, and Donald the Dumb. Males will put females down so as to demonstrate their superiority. Does that make any sense? It only makes sense if the male feels inferior. Why dis people about whom you don’t feel inferior?

Donald the Dumb is a perfect example. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Donald the Dumb’s bluff within a couple of days after the recent midterm election. However, women, for Trump, are objects.

At least, Reg, in Monty Python’s Life of Brian, is honest. Reg wants to be called Loretta and have a baby. That comedic routine wouldn’t be funny unless it hit a sexist nerve.

Stan: I want to have babies.

Reg: You want to have babies?!?!

Stan: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

Reg: But ... you can't HAVE babies!

Stan: Don't you oppress me!

Reg: I'm not oppressing you, Stan. You haven't got a womb! Where's the fetus gonna gestate? You gonna keep it in a box?
