It’s the Divine Masculine, made profane by stripping it of its balancing counterpart, the Divine Feminine.
YES, that is it exactly, Marjorie. Men robbed of the Divine Feminine act like dicks. A man who is not in touch with the Divine Feminine without and his own feminine Anima within has no idea how to be a strong, fully actualized male — or human being, for that matter. And the thing, as you point out here, is that it is Patriarchy which has robbed men of the Divine Feminine. Women didn’t do that; men did. Men who feel like they have to defend Patriarchy do not understand what Patriarchy is, or how it injures them, let alone women. This essay shines a light without pushing men into the darkness. Yay for you.
