What’s all the fuss about the feminine imperative? Really.
There is a veritable glossary of terms that flirt with the concept….team woman, hypergamy, even the hamster, and they generally are just coined shorthand to use when referring to ubiquitous things we see.
In keeping with my uber theme, I assign many of these phenomena to the quest for empathy. As I raise the specter of empathy having a nefarious side across the sphere I have yet to have anyone challenge the idea. Maybe some find it too stupid to bother addressing, so be it. But just as observing female interactions leads to the coining of terms to reflect what we see, so too does it lead to the conclusion that there is a naked craving for empathy.
Maybe people have trouble seeing something that is perceived as virtuous as a catalyst or driving force for bad behavior. I get that. It took me awhile to accept myself. Once I did I found a new understanding and it inspired this little blog. Early posts like Empathy, what a riot, Empathy and Divorce, Empathagasm, Yes Yes, Yes and Empathia, were attempts to drill down and explain the idea that empathy is not necessarily a motive for good.
After writing about it for awhile I started to imagine myself baling water with a thimble, and swerved off into other things.
Comes the feminine imperative.
I’m going to state that the quest for an empathy experience is an aspect of it.
