I’ve been reading your blog since 2009. I was wondering if you could answer two questions I have for you about your beliefs. I know you’ve answered these questions in a few different ways before on your blog, but I wanted to put them to you directly to see what you’d say.
My first question is about pseudoscience. There are people who accuse Female Supremacists of “pseudo-science,” or at least being very selective with scientific facts about the biology of sex differences for their own agendas. Does science really support belief in Female Supremacy? Is there any reason to believe Female supremacy exists as a solid ideology and lifestyle beyond Femdom BDSM?
To answer your first question, yes and no. One would be a little naive to not see some level of shoehorning going on to justify ideas of Female Supremacy from time to time, and I’ll be the first to be completely frank and sober about that reality. People—Women and men, misogynists and misandrists, liberals and conservatives, et al—spin findings and facts quite regularly, or gratuitously misinterpret them to suit a political/ideological agenda. This is as much true about Female Supremacism as notions of male supremacism (I just can’t capitalize it—sorry!), the latter having a much longer wrap sheet in history courting junk science, cleverly constructed hate groups, religions based upon pro-male mythologies, and enforcing cultural double-standards that have favored men and justified the oppression of Women since time out of mind. Let’s not forget the on-average 10% larger brain size of males was once used to assert men were naturally more intelligent than Women. Research has debunked that myth, of course. Today, we now know that since males tend to have greater muscle mass than Females, they require more neurons to power them. 
While some certain findings in the scientific community are relevant to Me and My beliefs, I do not pull out a Female-positive result from recent research to declare “science now proves Female Supremacy to be valid” (scientists, for the most part, steer clear of such sensitive value judgements). What I’m really doing is inviting people to consider all facts holistically with things many of us intuitively sense or personally observe about Women and men in real life, beyond controlled studies. Before such studies made it official, the social exuberance of Women—how there tends to be a certain “something” to Women that allows them to be emotionally/cognitively empathetic—was a well recognized, or at least culturally assumed Feminine attribute. Research affirms this by pointing to the Female brain’s on-average greater ability to empathize and socially interact.  Are the results of this report statistical noise? Is culture really behind it all? Are these sex differences hardwired in the brain? I can’t say for sure. In fact, no scientist can really say so for sure, either (for now), but there are interesting papers one finds from time to time that support age-old wisdoms. Culture may (and does, on some level) reinforce these differences and assumptions about the sexes, but the Female advantages toward empathy are shown to be innate in the average Female…at least in the paper I just cited, and others like it. We know Females, on average, tend to have better memory than males.  Genetically, we know Females benefit from having two X chromosomes, whereas males possesses an X and a Y chromosome (the latter a degraded X now used to determine maleness). Having two sets of fully functioning chromosomes helps Females in dealing with disease and environment more efficiently than males.  Socially, one can easily prove the negative cost of males through statistics on crime, rape, suicide etc. , , 
I’ll stop here (I could go on) to say that none of the above facts–and they are facts, by the way, not “junk science”—prove justification for Female Supremacy per se, but taken as a whole, and in consideration with other realities of the human condition, they definitely do (to Me and others who believe in what I believe) help to build a basis for a belief in “Female=better.” Stepping outside of that belief for a moment, one should take care to counter-weigh it with the reality that for some things, males are generally better suited (physical strength, eye-hand coordination, spatial tasks, etc). This is why I tend to steer away from contextual arguments of “superiority,” and prefer speaking in terms of aggregate supremacy. I could set aside the science and statistics that merely affirm My beliefs and then turn to the more abstract —like Female intuitiveness, emotional depth, and better leadership skills. In terms of reproductive importance, it’s not hard to see how valuable Women are and disposable men can be after insemination. In terms of the politics of sex, it’s also not rocket science to see who holds the cards 9/10 times; the Female aesthetic, as tomes of literature and art over the centuries tell, has tremendous advantages. I still haven’t mentioned (and won’t get into) the growing excellence of Women in education, politics, and business, and how demonstrably important they are in terms of leadership and a much-needed social conscience (Late-2000 Financial Crisis, anyone?) In the end, it’s not My duty to convince anyone of the wisdom in embracing Women as rightly supreme, even though I think there is a very good argument for it. It’s not simply a religion of wishful thinking, brought on by an interest in BDSM lifestyles.
Speaking of that, on to your second question:
Is there any reason to believe Female supremacy exists as a solid ideology beyond Femdom BDSM and fetish?
If you tend to frequent the world of BDSM, you might have a hard time believing the doctrine of XX > XY can exist outside of fetishes and D/s games. Regardless, many relationships otherwise free of corporal punishment and D/s psychosexual control dynamics recognize the higher authority of the Woman in the relationship, and Women overall in the family. It’s often spoken of in jest (She wears the pants in this relationship), but one would be mistaken to believe there’s never a thread of truth to such jests. While I’d never say the subtle to sometimes blatant examples of male-bashing seen in the media [ 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 ] from time to time are synonymous with notions of Female Supremacy, they seem related to a distrust of and contempt for men comparatively to Women. On the flip side, our infatuation with the glamor and power of Women often goes beyond a simple itch for “establishing equality.” Society, if you care to notice, has a mild obsession with Women, with how they look, how they dress, how they act, and so on. It (culture) may not be “Female Supremacist,” but it often seems increasingly Female-centric in that it spends a great deal of time focusing on Women, positively or even negatively.
All that aside, notions of Female Supremacy do in fact exist outside the vacuum of the Femdom paradigm (those who don’t want to acknowledge this fulfill a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy in what they “see”). If Female Supremacism didn’t reach too far beyond BDSM Femdom, I would imagine Ashely Montague wouldn’t have written that book of his in 1952, Erica Jong wouldn’t have gone on about the Female being the “more spiritually advanced sex,” Jane Alpert wouldn’t have seen Females as the new stewards of Mother Earth in the “next evolution” of humanity, destined to wrest “social and economic control” from men, and “Jane” Chalkstone, a suffragette, mind you, wouldn’t have been quoted for saying Women were a “great deal superior to men” in 1863. With that said, this is perhaps a good moment to point out that while a great many radical Feminists aren’t Female Supremacists, it’s probably safe to say a portion do lean in that direction, as scandalous as that may be for Feminism’s politically correct balancing act.
As for the idea beliefs in Female Supremacy are strictly relegated to the antics of fetish or BDSM, one could answer by asking the following: do you happen to know at least one Woman or Girl in your life who smugly regards men in general as uncouth, predictable hornballs almost always malleable to Feminine persuasion? Chances are you may. They may not have ever whipped a man or slapped him silly to put him in line, but to assume there are no lesser or greater leanings toward “Female is better” with such sentiments meanders into the naive, I think. I understand the desire to paint all Female Supremacists as cultish dominatrices living a life of closet deviancy: it makes them look surreal and absurd, especially when one considers the cartoon BDSM has become in the public conscience. What’s really absurd, however, is claiming all Female Supremacists are the same; that’s about as naive as asserting all Christians are the same, for instance.
Contrary to the negativity (and hope) of some, Female Supremacy isn’t just about adult play; it’s not all candied cherry ballgags, black latex rainbows, and bondage unicorns, unless that’s all it ever really means—to you. Are there Female Supremcists who incorporate overt dominance over men in the form of Mistress/slave relationships? Of course. Are there Female Supremacists who are in otherwise traditional and loving relationships with men? Yes (believe it or not). Are there Female Supremacists who want nothing to do with men whatsoever? Most certainly. We’re everywhere, and in many different forms, really. We may be your neighbor, your friend, and even your boss. We might be your Mother or Daughter. We might be your Girlfriend or Wife. Some of Us only express our sentiments intellectually or politically and some of us incorporate those sentiments strongly in Our lifestyles, with or sans whip. And of course, Female Supremacists come in many male forms, too, some merely playing the part for kink, and others passionately motivated in their beliefs.____________________
