This happens on such a deep level but from the pov of those who laid claim to the definition. To be able to deal with how inhumane and devestating it is - that everything ever has been decided by men - like literallysay we look at nature and decide which parts are worthy to look at and write down about it, has been done with male optics.
Big structures even if just kick drums has that pride related to the build size. Ascertiveness even in art terms is more male.
It’s very hard for people to take on the responsibility to take this into account everywhere, every second.
I’ll try to make an analogy to how severe it imo must be and must’ve been done.
Like what is most manifest for us - out of a mountain and a valley comparitively. Size, obstruction of the surroundings, the way the manifestation takes place (in this case a mountain suggests itself more, by popping out of the surroundings - than a valley that is a void and in that sense less substantual).
As you can see, even the way I try to define these two opposites - it seems one is closer to the way I’m balancing things or reading into it, necessarily my male ‘physicallity’ of it, just to comprehend it.
Bu that in construction itself, a phallic thing will represent itself more traditionally than a void or a more complex structure. Also if something is traditional here it means women have had less input. Straight up. Even the way women were taught to sing in church is about where the male diaphragm sits and how that works. But thats very technical. But like you can hear aretha franklin has become very rapsy down the line. It has not built up her muscles to be able to be more flexible but rather the opposite - and she could be the standard for female singing in most other aspects still. That is initself entirely proof tbh. But theres more.
It’s almost like we judge from an instinctual level and have to ‘worry’ more or ‘respect’ more, that a structure that stands out could lend itslef psychologically to seem to ‘come at us’ or seperate it self and become a boulder and fall down on us. And again that is that compartementalising going on, that is more naturally male way of dealing with info.
Like all of us by fear of nature has a fight and flight response to a non moving structure. That really says it all.
Men worry about singulars when out huning and collecting
and then women deal with context more
say being pregnant is a context they have to represent and so on
and ridiculously :
we just put our bits into them and they have to worry about the context of v and p
when we just stab away for contact etc
