    Well, I'm not a hijacker, but I'd like to contribute anyway. This is a tough topic and I like a challenge.

    It is difficult to assign meaning to something that I cannot choose for myself. The female experience deviates so much from individual to individual that any input will be entirely subjective... even the human experience deviates, so this is difficult to parse out.

    I am curious if there are any overarching trends among women (i.e. objective trends)... a sort of communal umbrella. I'll take a stab at this with that in mind...

    To be desired.

    ^That isn't to say men don't want to be desired, but I don't think it's as high on their totem pole (no pun intended) as it is ours. And it isn't to say that women don't have other priorities on their plate, but this is probably top 3 in conscious and unconscious aims among most women barring mental illness... Perhaps men need to be needed as much as we need to be wanted (sought/desired) and this small, but large difference is what establishes our boundary from one another.

    It's also difficult to assign any meaning/significance etc. when I'm not sure if I should be answering based on mother nature's (or God's, or a higher power's) perspective and their projected purpose onto me, or my own perspective and those of us living the experience.

    What do you think? Hit or miss?

    The Meaning of Being a Woman = XX
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    I like wearing skirts and dresses, sometimes pretending you're dumb isn't a bad thing either.
    Oh yeah?

    This seems like a good post for the What Do You Love About Being A Woman? thread.

    The motivations of internet bullies are so transparent that they've become cliche. /smh

    I assume you're referring to your own short-sightedness... right? Right.

    That's certainly a biological/genetic umbrella.

    Legitimate discourse is welcome! I'm interested in seeing more attempts to assign meta-significance to womanhood.

    Is it usual that woman do seem to surpress individuality in female groups for the sake of superficial companionship ?

    Looking forward to reading more deep and intellectual discussion about the meaning of being a woman.
