As I have told in my introduction at another place in this Forum, I grew up in a female led Community in Denmark, which a group of leftist and feminist young women founded in the year 1970, where my dear little sister Ida was 5 year old, and I was 8 year old. I think it may be of some interest for the readers to learn about how I as a boy grew up in a Female Led Community, where all the women and girls were strong believers in the natural superiority of females. And that to such a degree, that our mothers literally tried to create a kind of matriarchal society, which might seem odd today, but not in Denmark in the 1970s, where many young peoples wanted to change the society and were experimenting with new types of family structures, new forms of spirituality, new definitions of gender roles and so on. Especially I think it might be interesting, because unlike most people who live in a Female Led Relationship, as I do with my beloved wife Larissa, I was brought up in a Female Led Community. Almost all of the girls and boys who grew up in our small community still live in Female Led Relationships, and I think that this is interesting, because of cause all we boys were not "naturally born submissive" (or how you will say it in English). I think that this fact proves that Female led Relationships works, and can endure for generations. Before I tell more, I would like to emphasize, that I had a very good childhood, and I certainly don't write this in order to complain about anything. For centuries girls and boys have been brought up to believe, that boys somehow should be better or more worth than girls (and so it unfortunately still is in most parts of the world). I am glad, that I was taught to respect girls and women, and even if we were told that the girls were mentally and intellectually superior to us boys, our mothers loved us boys every bit as much as they loved their daughters. For better understanding I have to tell something about those times in Denmark: Back in the 1970s there were quite a lot of far left organizations in Denmark, all belonging to what was then termed "The New Left". My mother belonged to THE RED STOCKING MOVEMENT (DENMARK), which was a radical feminist movement of mostly well educated young women, split in several fractions. As the years passed by, and the expected socialist revolution did not take place, some of the feminist, including my mother and the other women in our small community, absorbed themselves in the ideas of the existence of prehistorical Matriarchies and Goddess worship, which in those years were very popular among radical feminist, because these theories seemed to confirm their notions of female superiority and proved that women unjustly had been deprived of their age old traditional leading role in religion and society when the patriarchy was established. And when the surrounding society did not change in the way they wanted, many leftist tried to create their own mini societies in collectives, or in communities like THYLEJREN or the FREETOWN CHRISTIANIA. (Words written in capital letters can be found in the English Wikipedia). My mother and her female friends all had a higher education - many of them, including my mother, were academics - but their highest wish was to create a female orientated, egalitarian society. In the year 1970, when my sister Ida was 5 year old, and I was 8 year old (in that same year Thylejren was founded) they therefore created their own community, in which, as I think that I have described in my introduction post, all property were owned by the women in common. Originally there were about 12-15 women; but later on many more women moved in with their children and male lovers. We really were a lot of children, because not only had most of the women had intercourse with many lovers and therefore children with them, but it was also seen as something great among them to have many children. Motherhood was considered as something almost sacred, because the ability to create new life most clearly distinguished the women as the superior sex. My mother had only Ida and me, but most women had three or four children. One mother had five children, and the woman in our community with most children had seven girls and boys, which was quite unusual in Denmark at that time. So there were plenty of children in our community, even if it was small. Newly arrived women in our community were required to pay a certain amount of money, but then they also owned the fields, gardens, orchards and houses on equal terms with the other women. The egalitarian principles were so important to the founders of our small community, that they could not step back on it. That the men were excluded from ownership, did not seem to bother those strong minded women: After all, this was a female founded and female led community, and their men and lovers were free to leave, when ever they wanted to. In this regard there was no compulsory exercised by the women over their men whatsoever. And without having part in the ownership of the property, the men had considerably less responsibility than the women, and even than their teenage daughters, who were seen as the heiresses. This gave, I thought back then, the men a more carefree life. And as I said: If they did not want to be there, the men were always free to leave. And if the women got tiered of their lovers, they just told them to leave. Both girls and us boys in our community felt our way of life as quite normal and natural, and we boys also accepted the idea of the girls being superior to us as an undeniable truth, even if it was a bit humiliating for us, because that was what our mothers and sisters had told us. But at the same time we of cause were well aware, that our way of life was not the way of life of most of the people in our country. I think you could compare our situation to what children of small religious sects, e.g. Jehovas Witnesses, are experiencing. In the nearby village, where all we children went to school, the inhabitants in our community were called "de skøre" (in English: The lunatics). At first the village people shunned all contact with us, and their children were even forbidden to play with us. So it was for several years, but at the time that I was 13-14 years old, the attitude of the villagers had markedly changed: Although we in their opinion still were kind of weird, the people in the village had noticed, that we always worked very hard, and hard working people was something these village people really respected. We also were very frugal (as opponents of the capitalist consumer society, frugality was an ideal for our mothers), and this also won us the respect of the villagers. And we were honest, because our mothers hated children who told lies. This also was noticed and appreciated by the villagers, adults and children alike. Another important thing was, that the villagers noticed, that we boys always were well behaved towards the girls in the village (this came natural to us, as we from early on had been taught to respect girls of all ages), and we never provoked the village boys into fights and so on. Therefore the children from the village at long last were allowed to visit us, which they then did all the year around, not only in the summer time, where the village girls clearly enjoyed seeing a lot of almost naked boys. Close friendships between many of us and them were made, and if the boys of the village had quarrels with boys from other villages in the neighbourhood, they could always count on us to come and help them, because we had a reputation of being really strong, a side effect of our hard work. Because I grew up in a Female Led Community I from time to time have read about Female Led Family life on various Internet forums, driven by curiosity. But I soon found out, that many of the descriptions in some of these forums of Female Superiority and Female Led Families don't match my own experiences, to put it mildly. I have often read stories of wifes, who spank their men and sons on the slightest occasion. Or stories of moms and sisters, who on a weekly or even daily basis kick their sons or brothers in the testicles, and treat them in the most humiliating ways, bordering on torture. Of course much of all this may be imagination or exaggeration, but even if it is, it is not good, because women and girls do NOT deserve to be described as evil or wicked persons, who in some cases (if true) are almost monsters. At least it is not my experience, that girls and women with power turn into bad human beings. And to stress this fact is my reason to write about my upbringing in a Female Led Community. Our mother, my dear little sister Ida and I all slept in the same room (our house was not a big house): Ida and I slept in an old, large double bed, while mother slept in a single bed which stood opposite to our bed. I always slept naked, while Ida and mom wore their night gown. As I grew older and became a teenager, my mother more often than before taught Ida and me about the fact of female superiority, always ending with emphasizing, that although Ida was three years younger than me, she all the same was vastly superior to me. Well, although I accepted what our mom told us, the suggestion that my little sister should be not only superior, but vastly superior to me, always embarrassed me, and made me blush. I often tried to argue, that considering the age difference between us, Ida and me were equals. But our mom just smiled, and said, that "there is no such thing as equality between sisters and brothers". ("Der er aldrig lighed mellem søstre og brødre", as she said in Danish). So it was for a while, until on day in the summer holidays, when I was 14, and Ida was 11 years old. A group of German feminist were then visiting us, and they were not only feminist, but also, as it turned out, strong believers in the existence of ancient and contemporary Matriarchies, and ardent supporters of Goddess worship. In fact the visit of these German women started what I would call the Matriarchal and Goddess Worship fascination among the women of our community. One early evening during this summer our mother came back home in a quite elated mood from a Women Meeting, where the German women had told their Danish friends, how easy it was to demonstrate and prove, that any girl is superior to any boy. Our mom then ordered Ida and me to stand up, and face each other. This we did, and now mom said, that we should look each other straight into the eyes. To lower one's eyes would be a clear sign of recognition of the other person's superiority. And mom added, that she was very sure that I would have to lower my eyes before Ida, thereby recognizing her as vastly superior to me. As mother had said, it turned out: As much as I tried not to, in the end I could not stand up to Ida starring me right into my eyes, and I looked down, admitting her superiority, as mother triumphantly said. I thought it might just be a coincident, and at my insist we tried the look in the eyes contest again and again and again and again, but Ida won every time. My growing humiliation was causing my penis to grow considerably in my briefs, and a bulge was hastily forming. Ida giggled, and asked mom why my dick was getting stiff ("pik" is the danish slang word which Ida used), and mom replied that this was a sign from my body beyond my control, whereby I in fact admitted, that Ida was superior to me. I then gave up, admitted defeat, and felt utterly humiliated. Now the whole point of my experience, and the reason why I am telling it here, is Ida's reaction, because it tells me something of girls, that do not correspond with most of what is written of girls in many of the forums dealing with the theme Female Superiority which I have read: That night I felt very embarrassed as I lay together with my little sister, whom I always had loved, in our big double bed. My feeling of humiliation caused me to have a throbbing involuntary erection, which I only occasionally had in the mornings (which mother said was completely normal), and although we lay covered under a big blanket, Ida of course could not help noticing my erection, and she also guessed the cause. But she didn't tease me. Quite the contrary: She hugged me, and told me not to mind that she was superior to me, because I was still much stronger than her. Much stronger, as she emphasized. Her loving reaction made me realize, not only that Ida really WAS superior to me, but also and foremost, that this was nothing for me to be ashamed about. Next morning I told mom, that I didn't mind being inferior to Ida, because she would always be my dear little sister. Then mom hugged us both, and nothing more was spoken of this matter. As to how boys and girls in our female led community were punished, I first have to say, that we boys were never spanked. Never ever. To spank a child was considered reactionary by all the women. Girls who misbehaved was reprimanded with stern words, and we boys were likewise scolded, but the scolding of a boy was always followed up with one or two slaps to his face. And it really hurt, when I was receiving a face slapping from my mother. If my sister was present when mom was punishing me, and it was in the summer time, where I only wore my briefs, as a teenage boy my embarrassment often caused me an involuntary erection, which always made my sister giggle, although she tried not to. My mother would then pull my briefs down, and squeeze my testicles, which was very painful. My penis instantly went soft, and then I could pull my briefs up again. I never had corner time (we didn't know the concept), and when my punishment was over, it WAS over. Like all girls, my sister was never hit when she was scolded, but I think this double standard was fair, because my sister was always very sad long after mom had reprimanded her, although I always tried to cheer her up the best I could. Her punishment obvious had a much deeper effect on her, than the harsher punishment I was receiving had on me. I thought back then, that this difference had something to do with the superiority of the girls. They felt everything on a much deeper level as did we boys. I have to point to something of great importance, and that is what my mother and the other women meant when they said, that girls like my sister Ida were vastly superior to boys. As Ida was so nice to point out for me in her effort to comfort me, I of course was stronger than her, but even young girls in their teen or even preteen years were considered more mature than boys, and therefore mentally and intellectually superior. That was what these feminist women meant when they said, that girls were vastly superior to boys. You do not need to be a feminist to agree with that, I believe. But my mother and her female friends also believed, that a girl always should be morally superior to a boy, which meant, that a truly superior girl never ought to use her mental and intellectual superiority to harm or humiliate a boy. Exactly as we boys were strictly forbidden to hit a girl, or in any way use our greater strength to harm them in any way. As our mother always said, with superiority follows responsibility.
