I just checked the Escobar link... amazingly astute of him to use the ATHENA reference since she is the goddess sprung from daddy Zeus' head who DENIES having been born of a mother.
In the past, when the usual posters who did (and do) their best to insist that gender is irrelevant (regardless of the FACT that no nation is yet to witness true parity in terms of representing both genders equally in ALL chambers of power from commerce to religion to academe to government) brought forth THAT testament, I'd counter it with the understanding that male and female prototypes take their essences from mythological archetypes.
Whille it is MARS, a "man's man" god of war who paves the way to all forms of militarism and conquests born of aggression... there is a female archetype that resonates WITH war and Patriarchy. That archetype is Athena and I have patiently explained that while MOST women don't identify with (or embrace) this macho archetype, the women who have the type of blood-thirsty ambition (a la Lady Macbeth) that can readily identify with patriarchy and its well-oiled armed forces... will be the ones who make it to the top of the Mars-ruled hierarchy of Power.
Hillary qualifies. As do: Madeleine Albright, Condi Rice, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, Maggie Thatcher, and others.
There are 11 other archetypes, 10 other than Mars-Aries and Athena.
One of the reasons I contest the liberal commandeering of the term "WE" is that it ONLY gives voice to these pro-war expressions and those who identify with them.
At best, that's 10-12% of the population.
