Egyptian Antiques History - Male Dominance From 4280 B C E

Mar 24, 2008
Male dominance over women has generally been seen as a protective virtue, in which the wife with the children hid in the cave while the husband fought to the death at the cave entrance as the bear or tiger tried to enter. And this has been the tendencies of civilizations around the world, as they have spread out of Africa.

However, the sometimes cynical view of women has been that this dominance has not always been so loving and protective, but rather that old male bondage thing where the boys agree that the girls belong in the kitchen. Barefoot, pregnant, submissive as ever, and none of this queen for a life nonsense.

This documentary showed that there was a queen Pharaoh who in 4280 B.C.E. had her face chiseled off all important shrines. We see, again and again, a female figure on a wall missing a head, and are told that her son did this.

It seems that even 4,280 years before the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, women had to remember their place. Her name has been also chiseled out, but it was said to sound like Hapshetsu, as I listened to it. And since then we have had many more powerful and effective leaders of the female persuasion.

Margaret Thatcher comes to mind. Joan of Arc.Cleopatra. Boadicea. Pocahantas. Florence Nightingale. Marie Curie. Eleanor Roosevelt.To name a few, who were more great than those who replaced or were in front of them.

Why did this ancient Pharaoh, the first woman to hold the title, find herself in disgrace, even to her son enough that under his instructions, we learn, he had her face chiseled off her monuments of most importance to him, as he knew. Why?

The influential backers behind the throne, all male, had felt slighted by the Queen, or Lady Pharaoh, in ways not so much her fault but that she was a woman. How could they order around their own household, and yet somehow invert that power to take direction from a woman when they arrived at work in the morning, to report to a woman in court? It was just all too stressful.

And so it did not happen again for several thousand years, which counts for a statement about attitude. We know there was later an occasional lady Pharaoh, who came and was soon gone. Hello, goodbye, Cleopatra.

Although you wisely made your capital in that Greek city in Egypt, the mighty port Alexandria, built by your great uncle Alexander, through General Ptolmy. Then came Rome. Now, they may be on their way back.

And that may be a very historically powerful evolution of us all. It matters much less which national leader is in charge each year in the new Europe, and they now see that a Roman Germanic Slavic Turkish Egypt called Metro Europe is in view, if you have that eagle eye forward.

Some, apparently, do. And we applaud them all, whether they are young, mature, or elder boys and girls. Helpmates all, and you trouble makers, please, give peace a chance.
