c.2003 M. Bennett Hooper


Along time ago like over 3500 years ago when royal power rested within incestuous marriage.
The priests of the times of the Temple of Amen-Ra were more concerned about women achieving power status over men than being married to their brothers.

Hatshepsitou was the daughter of Thotmes I and sister/wife of Thotmes III of Egypt.
Since she was stronger and smarter than her husband/brother she seized power and became a Pharaoh , disavowed being her fatherís daughter .
Insisted she was the daughter of the God Amen-Ra and was the product of a virgin birth
around 1500 BC.

As the result of fighting with the priests, she proclaimed she was really a man.
She began to wear menís clothing and changed her name to Hatshepsut.
She erected statues of herself which were demolished after her death.
For 3000 years she was forgotten until her tomb was discovered in the Valley of The Kings where only male kings were buried.
Some archeologists think she was the princess who raised Moshe whom most call Moses.

Many things have changed over the last 3500 years and many things remain the same as men still attempt to assert their power through the controlled sexuality or the lack of it of women.
It is a manís world, but must women still attempt to APE men in order to aid in itsí healing?
Humanityís survival should be more than gender bias and control.

Must women continue to pretend to be men in order to teach and or lead them?
If not then ladies stop leading with your crotches.
And remember Viagara was invented by men for men to make men happy and more virile.
What have we invented lately to address our health concerns?
Is it not ironic that the health concerns of most women involve lessened fatalities while those of the men involve virility ?

Who indeed is pulling on their genitals more them or us?

Reviewed by Sandie Angel 8/8/2003
In those ancient days, women were not supposed to rule, but she did for many years. Much like the Chinese Empress in the Ching Dynasty, during the time that she ruled and many monuments were built.

Now in Canada, many top positions in the government are being occupied by women. The world is changing.

I enjoyed this interesting thought-provoking piece!

May Lu a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
