There was an academy award winning musical years ago called “South Pacific”. It featured a song that a group of lonely sailors sang that went something like this:
“We've got sunlight on the sand. We've got moonlight on the sea. We've got mangos and bananas we can pick right off the trees. We've got volleyball and ping-pong and a lot of dandy games. What ain't we got? We ain't got dames! There is nothing like a dame. Nothing in the world. There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame. There are no drinks like a dame. And nothing thinks like a dame. There are no books like a dame. And nothing looks like a dame. And nothing acts like a dame. Or attracts like a dame. There ain't a thing that's wrong with any man here that can't be cured by putting him near a girly, female, womanly feminine dame.” ~ From South Pacific, (1958), A South Pacific Enterprises, Inc. Production.
Even though some of the words to this song might, to some, sound like the sailors singing might be suggestive--and even though the word “dame” today might sound a bit chauvinistic—the underlying message is still very strong. Men like looking at and being around a feminine woman. They always have, and they always will.
It just wouldn’t work to have the words be something like “There is nothing like a gender-neutral person”. Or “There is nothing like a manly woman”? No! And there shouldn’t be either!
The importance of being feminine in the way we look, move, speak and act is as important today, perhaps even more important, than it ever was. Men are starving for it. Women need it too, though the meaning of it seems to be lost on too many of us.
There is nothing wrong with being totally male, and totally female. It is the natural order of things. Anyone who tries to distort this is going against powerful forces.
Who doesn’t want a deeply romantic relationship with someone who adores them—one that will last their whole life and beyond? If we are to have these celestial unions, we must accentuate the differences between us—not minimize them. It makes us happier. It definitely makes men happier!
