On the Misconceptions of Masculinity
by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
There are many myths about the basic nature of the male gender that have served to reinforce the evils of the overly dominant masculine energies of the Iron Age. One of the largest of these misconceptions is the role that the father is expected to serve when raising a male child. It is often assumed that a human male should instruct his male children about things such as sports, hunting, and other activities that exert masculine aggression. This horrific travesty of the natural order is what subverts the initial development of many young creative minds.
If a young human male desires to learn about aggressive behaviors, then he should be allowed to pursue such endeavors. Likewise, if a young human male desires to learn about art and creativity, then he should be allowed to pursue such endeavors as well. It would seem logical to most rational minds that a healthy mix of the two would be preferable. However, either one of these paths can be taught by either parent. The aggressive behaviors do not have to be taught by the father, and the creative and aesthetic behaviors do not have to be taught by the mother. Either parent should be able to teach anything that they wish.
It has been assumed by a very large percentage of the civilizations that have existed in the Iron Age that the aggressive and violent nature of the father should be taught to his male children. It is this vile and destructive evil that has been passed down through the centuries from father to son that has allowed the horrific patriarchal reign of the Iron Age to subvert the proper development of the human species. In order to break this chain of intellectual and spiritual oppression, human males should be allowed to develop freely without any preconceived notions about stereotypical roles of gender.
With the many advances and positive developments that have gradually occurred over the last several decades with regards to equal rights for the females of the species, the same has not been true with the rights of the males of the species. It is almost always expected that a typical male should attempt to exert aggressive influence and dominate. It is this expectation that is the seed of the greatest evil that faces the development of the species. When this imbalanced expectation is obliterated from the collective consciousness of humanity, the free and rational development of human males will flourish in the most biologically positive state possible.
Male humans do not have to dominate, and female humans do not have to be submissive.
We do not have to live like slaves any longer.
