Ellen Gayda: Submission Is Rarely A Healthy Woman Gift to Men AOC Sensual Rebel

In a healthy society where men respect women and women are positive role models to one another, a woman is encouraged to embrace her own sensual, chaotic creative power and then learn to harness it responsibly. She discovers she carries a wild force of nature within her that is so potent that she is even capable of co-creation.

If a woman doesn’t learn self nurturing then what nurturing love can she offer another? If she shuns or abdicate her own responsibility in learning this essential lesson, then she will want a man to step in to harness her. This is a difficult lesson for women to learn because they so desire to be desired. The cost can be developing a relationship with oneself that establishes self respect, internal security and an understanding of who one is. In terms of offering, one can not offer anything that one has not already claimed as one’s own. If a women chooses to submit her power to her lover, then she had better know where the beginning, middle and end of that gesture is — or she will gets lost in translation.

Giampaolo Sgura’s Antidote ‘Coprs a Corps’ | Serpents & Goddesses AOC Sensual Rebel

Here is a tasting of what ‘The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets’ says about serpents.

Indirectly, these myths challenge the argument that women are naturally submissive, a belief that AOC rejects. I wrote to Pauline this morning that Giampaolo’s and Yanni’s visions of women remind me of Versace and the sensually powerful glamazon supermodels, women far more akin to the goddesses of mythology, than today’s much more frail fashionistas.

Men of the Aegean World didn’t participate in religious ceremonies until late in the Bronze Age. Long before Aristotle, the Aegean world worshipped primarily women and serpents. Eventually Cretan kings were allowed to become priests of the bull-god, a role subordinate to that of the priestess until the priest himself took the title of “serpent.”

The word for “priest” among ancient Akkadian peoples literally meant “snake charmer”.
