The Road to Femininity

The sparkles of magic within… the hidden massive power that rules the world… the endless source of pure light and delicious warmth… the brush that paints the faces of life with vivid astonishing colors… femininity, god’s grace to women

I am proud to be a woman… and I thank mighty God every day for the blessing of belonging to this beautiful race that bears life, and endless secrets within

Through my course of life, I saw many women who appreciate being women, and embrace their feminine power and tamed it for their good… while others curse it, deny it, and turn into deformed creatures that are neither feminine nor masculine, as they lose themselves and their identity; satisfied with existing for certain purposes – keeping human race - do nothing with pleasure, feel nothing with their hearts, know nothing of their inner self.

Culture, is it?

The way they have been raised, is it?

Or the savage life conditions they are going through?

Blame men is the solution!!

It is true that women are living under hostile conditions, their rights are denied, they are treated as properties to own, they have been raised with a natural feeling of guilt, and all what make them a woman is buried under thick layers of tribal code… but…we shouldn’t just put our heads in the sand and forget that a major part of the problem comes from within.

I see women walking in the street, with dark faces, and eyes that lost the beautiful sparkle of the moon, tend to turn themselves into ugly creatures, which make me ask …

Are they real women… what do they know about being a woman… what do they know about the difference between masculinity and femininity?? is it just a genital, and hormonal difference? How they perceive the term “Femininity”!!

Why being a wife, mother, practical woman, spinster, divorced, widow, feminist, intellectual has a negative impact on women femininity?

Alas, and I hate to admit it, the majority of today’s women know nothing about femininity, about the power they carry inside their souls and hearts… they believe that mimicking men in some of their attitude will bring them respect… they think that by reaching certain physical, mental, intellectual status means to give up being a woman… and pathetically turn to be anti-femininity creatures!! They have succeeded To lose the power within, to deny their nature and secret magic… and finally fill the streets, houses, offices with shadows of who were once women dwell

Let’s face it

- A girl is so beautiful and smooth till she got married, then turn to be a maid in her own house, know nothing but kitchen and kids,

- Some marry for just being able to be mothers, and I swear to god I heard it from many friends, after they give birth and I ask about their husbands, the answer is … he did his role

- Carrier turn women to be savage in behavior, as a mean to protect themselves and enforce respect in a environment where men generally rule… elegant, beautiful, but play with great success the role of femme fatal

- Some who has no luck in marriage don’t bother about the way they look, they act with vulgarity, and turn to crows … with all the meanings of the word

- Even one of the noblest roles for women – feminist - has turned them to be anti-men, they might be elegant and beautiful, but lost the touch of tenderness in their voices and way of acting with others

- Intellectual girls are known to wear glasses, and lose interest with god’s grace… their bodies

Women… themselves… and no other… have deformed the meaning of femininity… surrender to the dark waves of life that pull them away from their magical territory… all the above are examples of wrong practices from women themselves… they deliberately lose their powers, they intentionally bury their magic, they kill the beauty within… they kill themselves slowly, not knowing that femininity is the easiest path to reach a good life

But… what is femininity? What are the signs of femininity? how to find road to such great power?

That is what I will tell in coming posts… stay around

dear egyptiana,
great article. I think that there is a great need to restore the notion of femininity. Our world needs women to be proud to live their femininity at the fullest, bringing forward their richness and specificity. achieving the goal of equal rights witout losing that mysterious, alluring quality that makes women beautiful.
best regards

my dearest miss egyptiana

great article and yeah we shouldnt always put the blame on men who leave their wives to look for other women who r taking care of themselves

i think we should blame both the man and the woman

women like u said sometimes due to too much work outside and inside the house
they dont take care of themselves or how they look for their husbands

it is very important to take care of ourselves first for our own selves and for our lovers who deserves this

we should say i have lots to do much more important than taking care of myself and dressing well

belive me when i get something new to wear i feel much happier i dont know why but it makes that trick with my mind and it is a good one so why not

women should rethink again that taking care of themselves not a previlege but something like a must they should do
im waiting for your next posts
im sure they r great ones too

good luck my dear and thank u for your impressive posts and articles always

Femininity is not a thought, belief or feeling. It is a practice. It is something that needs maintenance. How the woman can maintain her femininity if she has to work all day then come back take care of her kids and in the weekend clean the house. Find any woman a house keeper, a nanny and a light duty elegant job or financial fund that makes her in no need for a job then come blame the woman for not maintaining her femininity. Most women merely can not afford femininity, that is all.

Dearest Finding Mimo

i agree with you that there is a need to restore the notion of femininity, alas women are losing it, and they claim that they are becoming free

in my next article, i will explain what femininity means to me... hope you like it

i love the way you describe the whole matter, you always have a way in completing my words dear

my warmest regards, and hope to see you around always

Miss Egyptiana "Trapped Soul" said...

Dearest agenda

the matter is not just to take care about the way we look, but also the way we behave

we are women for god sake, we have to be soft as beautiful

i will explain more in part two, so stay around :)

wish to see you always around sweety, have a lovely day

Miss Egyptiana "Trapped Soul" said...

Dear He and She

first allow me to agree with you that femininity is a pactice, and i prefer to call it a behavior

as for your sentence: "most women cannot afford femininity"

we are born with this secret, and mystery, it is embeded within us... we only need to beleive and act upon this fact ... it has nothing to do with work, and practical and marriage life, it has to do with our willingness to show it or not

femininity is the smile we wear, the soft voice we talk with, the manners, it is all about the behavior

thanks for sharing your thoughts with us ... and hope to see you again

I want to add that masculinity in women is not necessarily a reaction towards men but just part and parcel of their upbringing. It is also not solely for women either. I consider myself a 'masculine' woman and I am searching for femininity (for balance) but finding it difficult to achieve! My search brough me to this article. Very interesting. Thankyou.
