UterusTopia

I was up in a cabin at Whistler for Gen’s stagette weekend. (I hate that term and all it connotes, but of course I had a good time anyway). Six women and Tater-Tot, who is too young to really be a boy. He’s more a black hole of cuteness.

We got along pretty well, but then, I knew we would. Any friends of Gen’s, and all that. But it made me wonder. Lots of folks would say that an all-women world would be a happier one. No war, little violence, decisions based on consensus, not for the individual’s greater good. A little more give-and-take. But I wonder if this is true.

I have personally seen women being petty, greedy, emotionally manipulative, and overzealous. Not just when there was competition for a man, but also for control of affection, higher marks, or a better wage. I don’t know that an all-woman world would be too different from the one we already inhabit. There might be less war. Maybe we’d end world hunger. We could curb the population explosion and all manner of good things.

However, it’s the personalities that become the problem. Even in a penis-less world, there would still be egomaniacs clawing their ways to positions of power. There would still be thoughtless assholes. And there would still be sexual and emotional predators. The world would still have problems, because it’s not just men who cause problems. Women do, too.

The would would NOT be a better place if there were only women. The world would, however, be a much better place if there were more women like my friends.
