We think we're so smart; to the point of smugness, in our ability to evolve...
Lest we forget God Doest have a sense of humor.
Being a Male of gender, although essentially influenced and raised by females, allows for a paradoxical perspective of life's lessons. As a heterosexual male, I admire the natural beauty of women. During the child rearing process,female role models pointed out the 'second class denigrating effects' of hedonism.
Confusion,later on in life, forced me to resolve this internal conflict. Look, don’t stare, seems to be the acceptable compromise. Thinking as a male instinctively, yet exposed to the female perspective of hedonistic tendencies…that works for me and to all those whom have pointed out along the way, I’m different: mystery solved.
Eventually it would evolve to 'equal is equal', with respect to the paradoxical landmine such is Life. The accelerate being my daughter, whom re-hard-wires my male brain. My credo is simple: well being and happiness is the top two goals for my kids. If their safety is in jeopardy, happiness is overruled.
Being a strong advocate of female rights while raising my daughter was an easily justifiable position until her later teenage years. The question would never enter my mind, what if she chooses to embrace a questionable industry, say Playboy for example?
Quite simply, a system failure of monumental proportions occurred in my logic and reasoning. After consideration consternation,one comes to the conclusion, I don’t get to choose what makes her happy. It comes down to choice, the right of which we are endowed by our creator.
Once again light has been shed on the paradoxical land of Life. Mapping out the course of her life,is not included if her well being is not in jeopardy. So, I hope and I pray she works through it on her terms. There's a time we can protect our children, then we must rely on the preparation we afforded them through their upbringing.
