Women need femininity – not satisfaction through the masculine prowess of muscles and money

Women and men need femininity – men for their orgasm, women – for men’s power to use as protection and beauty

Women need femininity for unique power of giving birth

Men need femininity for having kids and being their masters

Francis Picabia, “Woman’s Idol”, 1940-1943

What miraculously happens between women and men in their desire to touch one another’s bodies in the silent music of mutual ecstasy has been with us since the very beginning of life. The protective darkness of feminine inner bodily warmth alerts life and then it comes – the future, gentle fury of a fairy, the living flower of the body, soul and mind.

Miracle of femininity – the ancient female statue of fertility drives women to want, dream, and the need to produce the future – eternity. They squeeze life from non-being. They hope that their Idol – “the idol of femininity”, the miracle of maternal plenitude will be its prophet. They climb onto their idol. They try to press their bodily materiality against the statue’s breasts and place their knees on its mightily colossal hand which will support their life. Look at the statue’s feet like root of a giant pine feeding life supports the female weight.

Women put their head on the idol, mix their hair with the idol’s hair, like a child. How absurd the modern woman’s decorative lingerie next to her Idol. One of the reasons seems to be that the modern women rather than being reverential toward their deep feminine power – are geared to surrender to superficial embellishments of dead clothing in order to appeal, seduce and be objects of desire for the males (these parasites of “femininity” looking to capture women through their external, superficial attractiveness, which can trigger men’s mechanical sexual excitement). As a result men are concerned with their own sexual erectile needs which automatically rewards them with their precious orgasmic sensations while women concerned – with men’s needs, with moving near them, being touched, held and kissed and burrow their face in males’ drunk-like gazes.

Simply speaking girls want boys “who look impressive” and boys want girls to look great. So much for the American mass culture and consumerism based on stimulating competition. In other words, sexes take interest in one another (even when not consciously) based on the American motto of recent times to successfully compete and outdo the competitors – competition as a stimuli for generating prosperity and life. Of course, appearance is not the only criteria of being successful. It is popularity and success amongst peers of competing individuals and even making career is more important. That’s how far we have stepped from Picabia’s “Woman’s Idol” and the exceptional woman touching her as we see in the painting, who cannot resist the importance of meeting with the ancient statue of Woman-Idol.

Women’s primordial power of internal vitality is the only guarantee for the possibility of a responsible life with children. Today, it’s more and more uncertain that mothers will have a stable bond and contact with their children. The underfunded schools create the atmosphere which is more and more formal and less and less can afford to address social issues, problems and be involved with the kids who are seduced by drugs and abused by video-games and all kinds of chaotically anarchic frivolities creating obstacle for the school kids’ psychological, mental and emotional developments. Social urban life in the cities with their over-crowdedness and anonymity destroys the chance for children to develop internal world. Biotech intervention into “sex change” has become a reality and mixing individual identities with fantasies and children’s internal world. Reading books about human life in the past and present has been replaced with the absurd and bombastic (TV and digital) entertainment.

With Picabia’s “Woman’s Idol” the idea of saving the modern women from artificial sheer lingerie and stockings, high hills and garter belts to the chance of returning to the condition that a child can be a child, woman a woman again, mother as a mother, and adult as an adult. But, of course, all of this will be impossible, when air, water and forests are being destroyed and destruction continues more rapidly than ever. Woman’s Idol has seized to exist and there is no way back. Sculptures of the past cannot become alive. And sexual trivialities-frivolities of the young people will not turn into serious relationships between men and women. But still, how it’s could be good if Earth could be as young as before, if oceans could return to their healthier condition, if air could once again become breathable, if water could be clean again and nuclear energy with its striking power couldn’t exist anymore. Super-duper smartphones and video-games, deep dope and guns to shoot one another on the streets are just toy-pleasures of a dying life.

To help modern women to be less frivolous, superficial and playful is hopelessly utopian. Of course, women can always say that by trying not to be too “serious” they’re trying to help men with stresses and pressures – women always assessing the situation through the side of feminine sympathy, care and love. But the question will remain intact – women could help themselves by – not choosing to follow men and live in men’s world but rather in their own world – basic, solid, reliable, experienced, responsible, but without excluding men. Sure, men like to always be in charge, and are always intent to “naturally” dominate. But for domination there is a high price to pay, and it is women and children who end up paying for it.

Women supposed to learn from “The Woman’s Idol” to look for ancient roots of femininity, so as not to sell themselves as resources to men, as they’re ready to do – to men-kings, to men-the rich, to men-athletes, to men-stars, to men-gun-lovers, to men-generals, to men-soldiers, to men-professionals, men-experts, to men-workers, to men-gangsters, men-money-makers and men-thieves and to any other men who will waste the precious resources of femininity.
