Relationship between Women and Men

Relationship between Women and Men

Women and men, different genders are always getting along with “harmony”, but never balance. Relationship between masculine and feminine cannot be treated as equal. There is must be something that marked masculine or feminine. In society, every masculine things are always more powerful than feminine. Therefore, it is hard to imagine a more perfect example of a particular relationship between two of it,said Cixous in Castration or Decapitation. Masculine tries to control feminine by everything that they can take over. Cixous also states that masculine consists of trying to make a soldiernof feminine by force. What I see that feminine do not aware if they are being control by masculine. Cixous said it because the threat of decapitation, but eventhough they not lose their head, they are still losing their authority by turning into machine. They keep losing it because they cannot take order seriously, that is what Cixous said. However in my opinion, women can take order seriously if men and society do not judge and make them like that because Cixous ststed that women is afraid by decapitation and men is also afraid by castration that women creates. Eventhough both of women and men do not realise it. In every relationship that are related in both genders is always women who threats men by castration, sothen men also make their masculinity to control women by women’s fear of decapitation.

Red Sun

Red sun shone above the horizon teasing her heart by its color
And the cold breeze played her hair as it dancing with angels
A voice called her, making her comb the space to notice
The voice was from the light, beckoning her to reach the sea

The voice and the light bewitched her soul to obey
Getting on feet to touch and feel the red sea
The red sand chafing her barefoot but she kept walking
Feeling the wave reaching and cherish her toes

Her hands have already tasted the sweetness of red sea
Making her dress swaying with the current
The voice continued stirring her to follow the light to the deep-sea
Dazzling her wits and clearing the grits from her dress

She got closer to the light, deeper to the sea
But it was not hot and not cold
There was someone floating under the light
And her heart was pounding with excitement

Once he took her hand and guide her way to the depth
The red sun was blinking upon them
As he gone so did she
The red sea swallowed the red sun and made it dark.
