It is an interesting theory I read once, I wish I can recall the book reference.
It goes like this; the natural status of the cork is to float over water. It will stay under water if you keep forcing it down. Once the pressure is removed the cork returns to its natural position.
History of patriarchy over the last five thousand years striking the great efforts needed to keep Women powerless. From dawn of history women are made powerless by patriarchal laws. These laws have been made by men to ensure their dominance.
If it is natural for men to be the dominant sex there shouldn’t be any need for laws, custom or traditions to keep their place as the dominant sex. If people do not steal there will be no need for anti-theft laws.
On the other hand oppressive laws and customs kept women in a subservient position suggests that it is not natural for women to be the submissive sex
Men can only become the dominant sex by enforcing through violence, oppressive laws and customs against Women. This means that it is not natural for men to be the dominant sex – otherwise why they have to keep Women down. If we get rid of all these artificial laws and customs, forcing the cork down, then Women will naturally become the rulers of our World.
