Day 11 Sacred Space- Yin Yang

Hot on the tails of the blue post, I went out with my lovely friend Kimberly, had us a girls night out. Drank wine, talked about men, our relationships, all three. Got silly before even going to the restaurant, talked about flirting and how to be the womyn to the men of our post Gloria Stienem generation. We talked about how hard we work, how hard they work, how hard it can be, and how it is part of growing up.

I so love my sisters. I was afraid for a long time to really get close to other womyn, I am sure Freud would say it was because of my mother, I was much more prone to blaming things on my parents before I became a parent myself. Whatever the reason, I am really coming to appreciate more and more my lovely sisters. My beautiful mirrors, truth tellers and comrades in this crazy game of being the womyn in a world made equal for the sexes in so many ways and yet still shaky at best.

I look forward to a time where we can truly celebrating the glorious differences which make both men and womyn both exceptional and completely necessary. From the battle of the sexes to the reconciliation of the sexes, how about we shoot next for the blissful union of the sexes as a result of an understanding of the alchemy created at the point of contact between man and womyn? Sounds serious, sounds sexy, sounds worth it.

(Kim and I at the Valentines Burlesque show last year, yes I am wearing sparkly purple penises on my head, I had just won them!)

“How do you see the current relationship between the male and the female of humankind?” is the question in 12 days journal #213

  1. Sadly, I think sexism is alive and well within both genders. That's not to say there aren't people out there who are not sexist, just that I don't think it's the norm yet.
