The Feminization of Society Part 4 - Obstacles to Feminization as Social Policy

So far in this series I have talked about the increasing rate of the feminization of society, why it is a good thing, why feminization should be an explicit social policy, and some examples of how it might be integrated into culture. I think social feminization is the wave of the future, but that doesn't mean there won't be resistance to bringing it about. I'm sure that most if not all sissies would be happy to see feminization as social policy now, but otherwise, what's holding up progress? Well, I can think of several obstacles, but I also see their limitations.

First and foremost is, of course, men. Men have been in control of society for a long time. Men are still in control of the most important aspects of most societies. It took a long time to pry the right to vote from exclusively male hands. It took a long time to get to the point where women were not considered the property of men. Even today many men are not comfortable with a female boss or commander. Attitudes are changing but you can be sure that men will resist the feminization of society.

Another obstacle to feminization as social policy is, oddly enough, women. Even in today's society many women are instilled with the impression that they need a man to complete them. Whether perceived as a provider, for protection, or any number of roles, women are still too often willing to give up their autonomy for the sake of a man. This state of affairs is changing rapidly as feminization advances but it is likely that there will always be resistance from women that desire the comfort of more traditional roles.

There is also the issue of the rate of the adoption of feminization by various societies. Whereas feminization is well in progress and accelerating in the Western world, many less advanced societies have far to go. This is especially true of societies that are governed according to religious principles, in particular Islam. Women in these societies have to overcome obstacles that are almost unimaginable to us. They are denied such basics as voting, education, and driving. They often don't have autonomy, much less equality. But even here there is hope. For instance, Pakistan once had a female prime minister. However, she was assassinated by radical Muslims.

These are just a few examples of sources of resistance to feminization of human society the world over. I think the trend to feminization is unstoppable and accelerating, but it is unlikely to ever be complete. There will always be "manly men" for whom feminization does not take effect. There will always be women who desire the more traditional relationship between the sexes. There will always be male-dominated social structures that resist the loss of power and influence.

And the truth is, this is okay. There is room for all of these things. The important thing is the balance of power within the culture in which they exist. Men have their uses, as long as they are ultimately under feminine authority. Women can have a traditional relationship with a man, both knowing that the nature of the relationship is directed by the woman. Male-dominated social structures can exist within the larger feminized society, but have no influence outside of their limited domain. We can all live together in a society guided by feminine ideals.

Next time I want to conclude this series by bringing things back around to sissies, feminized males. After all, sissies are my main audience! We will talk about how sissies fit into feminized society and how we can help to bring it about. So once again, thanks again for reading! If you get a chance, give a shout (but a suitably restrained, feminine one) through the comments, by email, at Experience Project, or in Club Sissy or Yahoo Messenger chat. Above all, be like me... a Happy Sissy!

The Feminization of Society Part 3 - Explicit Feminization for the Benefit of Society

In the prior articles of this series I talked about my view that our society is becoming feminized, that the rate of feminization is increasing, and why this is a good thing. Now I want to float some ideas about how explicit feminization might be used to shape the society of the future.

What do I mean by "explicit feminization?" Well, until now the feminization of society has proceeded in an implicit fashion. It has been a natural, organic evolution as opposed to a purposeful, designed policy. For instance, women gaining the right to vote is not generally seen as a step in the feminization of society. Nevertheless, that is exactly what it is, an important and necessary step. The same can be said about women entering the workforce, gaining advanced educations, and assuming positions of authority in business and government. These milestones have advanced society and benefited its members. Upon this realization, it obviously follows that feminization should be official social policy. The word "explicit" means "fully and clearly expressed; leaving nothing implied." Feminization clearly expressed as social policy is what I mean by "explicit feminization."

How can explicit feminization be implemented as social policy? Let's start with the example of crime. As I mentioned, the prison population of the United States has nine men for every one woman. Clearly, criminals should be feminized in order to reduce recidivism. Feminization should not be viewed as punishment for crime, but as required therapy for criminals. A few ideas: Prisons could be redecorated using color schemes heavy on pinks and pastels. Prison garb could consist of pretty dresses and panties. A prisoner's diet could include testosterone-reducing and estrogen- and progesterone-boosting medications. Sentences could be reduced not for good behavior, but for feminine behavior. The possibilities are endless and new methods and ideas would be developed over time.

But for the greatest benefit to society, feminization should be the norm, not just an exception used in special cases. Based on the idea that femininity is superior and masculinity is dangerous, feminization should be interwoven throughout society. During childhood, babies might all be dressed in pink; it would be common for boys to wear dresses, nighties, and pretty panties; being called a sissy would carry no negative connotations but be a point of pride. In adolescence, girls might regularly dress up their boyfriends; boys would regularly dress up themselves, and not be shy about going to school or anywhere else in dresses; boys could be cheerleaders and wear short skirts just like the girls; football would fade into memory as a violet, masculine pastime; it would be common for couples attending proms and dances to wear matching gowns.

Continuing into adulthood, explicit feminization would leave no doubt that femininity is the ideal and masculinity is an almost primitive state. By extension, there would also be no doubt about who leads and shapes society: women. Males, via feminization, would simply be reflecting the feminine ideal. Women would control how much and when they wanted to feminize their men. At their discretion, they could even use estrogen boosters or testosterone blockers as they saw fit. As feminization spread worldwide, crime would plummet and war would fade into the past as would other masculine pursuits.

I have no illusions that feminization as explicit social policy will even come to pass in the near future, much less achieve the levels outlined here. But I do think it is the way of advanced societies as the future becomes the present. Next time, I want to talk about some of the obstacles to feminization as social policy and why I think these obstacles will be overcome.

Until then (and I will try to make it sooner this time), thanks again for reading! Get in contact through the comments, by email, at Experience Project, or in Club Sissy or Yahoo Messenger chat and let me know what you think. I always love hearing from my sissy friends.
