Fear of the feminine

The woman’s ability to reproduce – the maternal body – is unique indeed. It is one thing the male has not been able to conquer.

I wonder if this thought has ever created fear in men.

That, no matter how much of the world men dominate, there will still be the aspect of reproduction that men would have to concede to women.

That, men will never be able to exert masculine dominance over the biological process of creation. That, men will never be free from this feminine supremacy.
