INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY - (a few days late; leave it to me, a man, to be off on this one)

This NPR All Things Considered piece is extremely disturbing: 

Are men truly the 
Weaker Sex?
When will we men learn that projecting our inner weaknesses onto the outer form of the female sex is a 
Oh, I'm the victim and you with your extreme beauty take advantage of my weakness by placing your beautiful body in my path.  
Can't you see I can't help myself?
I am overcome by my aggressive need and desire and you with your wily ways entice me with your beauty. 
When will we stop killing our brothers and raping our sisters? 
This troglodyte tribal behavior must end.

Watching her move through these golden moments,
the stride of Athena quivering in her limbs,
the whisper of Quan Yin trailing in her song,
the amber light of Beata Beatrix illuminating the
pace of her thought and the Grace of her gesture -

Shining through it all, a Crystal Spring,
glistening under fallen sacrificial leaves,
the Celestial Virgin shimmers,
raising up her Woman's flesh,
clarifying her Galactic Sight.

The greater her surrender in Carnal Wisdom,
the Priestess penetrating the mystery of elevated passion,
the more she assumes her Woman's power;
the more iridescent the snow of her heaving slopes;
the more gleaming is the foaming wave
caressing the edge of her ever widening shore -

The more we meet the Radiance of her Soul,
as she borrows even our Breath and spins it into Light.

Beata Femeros Mundi - Matthew Yrigoyen
