The Land Where Women Rule: Inside China's Last Matriarchy

This culture seems amazing and progressive. I think, like the weaver said, the world can learn something from these women. These types of families that are interdependent eliminate the need for nursing homes, unlike Western societies. The families stay together and nurture one another which is a beautiful thing. Inter-generational wealth is maintained.

In many species there is only one sex: female. They reproduce either asexual and/or with another female. This is possible with humans. We can turn bone marrow into stem cells that then grow into mature sperm. By furthering the technique, we can utilize two female humans' bone marrow to create healthy offspring (but the resulting kid(s) will always be female). :D

It sounds oddly lonely and stressful--someone commented below that it's like a single mom's lifestyle and I agree with that. As for being progressive, it's really not--it's one side trading duties with the other. The women are just doing most of the stuff the men would typically be doing everywhere else. Progressive would be if men and women collaborated on everything without fighting about it all the time. On a different note, it kind of makes me wonder if there was a lot of warring in their history (more than the rest of China at the time), which made the women have to be responsible for so much at home because the men were out fighting all the time. It works well for them, but it would be a very long time before any new replications of it took root anywhere else in the world.

This is probably the most ideal situation for men. These women just realised that men are trash very early in history and started doing everything themselves. The oldest women is the most important member of a household of all women? Come on y'all!

One thing she got wrong. A matriarchal society does not neccessarily not have husbands, however common themes are that women inheret the land and bear responsibility for it's keeping as well as the children and educating them. Passing stories and traditions etc. In a matriarchal society hunting is often - if a woman wishes to then fine but otherwise it is something men do. Men hunt and fish and train and defend and the women also know how to do these things because it is them who must teach the children if anything happens to the men. Many of the traditions passed to the women in my family circle around pre christian matriarchal scottish area traditions. So I know this very well. Even if you were not working fields you had to do something you could trade to someone who did. One thing however. The eldest daughter becomes the keeper of such traditions to pass on to the next generation after. For everyone else it is a choice either of the current matriarch or themselves. That is how it survived even burried within a patriarchal society, how we survived. By old pre christian standards, the concept of joining being until vows were broken or love was broken was not uncommon- people did live together tho. It was different. An entire community came together around it's people. If you broke your vows in violence you were dealt with in violence. If you harmed a child you were worse than dead. If you harmed a woman the same could be true. It is ironic. Both in patriarchal and matriarchal societies the woman does most of the work and must learn and do more than men. The difference is that in patriarchal society women must do this and also give up themselves and a part of there own identity. This is a leftover stamp of ownership practiced even today. In a matriarchal society bloodlines and property pass through the women. Symbols and heritage pass through the women culture passes from mothers and grandmothers- from women. It is two ways of approaching the same thing. One treats women as property and one treats women with respect for all they do. There really isn't much difference otherwise. Sorry to disappoint all the sjws... But... I don't mind gender roles so much. Someone has to pass on these things and it's not the government. I just mind doing it as property or not owning my own property- If I could not do those things then I would mind. I don't actually care otherwise. Probably gave an sjw somewhere a freaking heart attack- especially if they are also a feminatzi. They want respect without the work to earn it themselves. They are disgrace. No respect earned means none deserved. Simple as that.

I am responding to some of the commenters who think this is funny...and who don't actually get it (which is hilarious). I am a man, non-SJW, and I think this is great! Women can do whatever they want, as long as they take responsibility for it, bring their kids up right and do not try to separate the kids from their fathers in any way. BUT, feminism like this is actually good, unlike western second and third wave feminism. This feminism/matriachy puts responsibility squarely on the shoulders of those benefiting from it: women. Sounds fine to me. Pretty sure it sounds fine to the guys piloting the boats too. No alimony, no responsibility towards the women, no drama, the possibility of unlimited women, women have a ton of responsibility and have no choice but to do an insane amount of work.Yeah, this is not a women's paradise, it is a man's paradise in most respects. The land where women rule, indeed...

As for the evolved psychological phenomena of “slut shaming”... I’ve read enough about general evolved sexuality to know that women across the board are quite a bit more picky when it comes to who they fuck, as for the entirety of our species history up until the dawn of birth control, fucking generally meant pregnancy and child birth. Since a man can in theory impregnate 1000 women in 9 months and a woman can only have a single child in the same time span, it makes more sense for women to be even more selective of their mates than men and what genetic lineage they devote all of that time and resource towards as opposed to being thot-less (HA). Add in the burdens of pregnancy, which if not maintained could easily lead to miscarriage and complications that add health risks, the often life threatening event of giving birth for most of human history, it only adds on to the reasons that women should be more selective with who they fuck compared to men. There is also the relic of “sluts” not being selective and having children with whom ever, then not having the resources to take care of those children so that responsibility falls on their kin/tribal group, which justifies some scorn as your singular fuck could become a lifetimes responsibility for everyone else. So, while I realize much of this is nullified by modern medicine, the eons of sexual evolution have led humanity to see, with perfectly understandable reasoning, why “sluts” should be shamed. Why women should remain more selective than men when it comes to sex. And that my fellow Youtube commenters, is my evolutionary psychology defense of “slut shaming”. Sex costs more for women than men in a thousand different ways, therefore women should be socially pressured to not fuck every dick that guided its bodies way to them.

Neither patriarchy nor matriarchy are problematic itself: its the capitalism with its economical backbone for society is what destroys peaceful ways of living together over and over. The answer is democratic communism (not the failed top-down communsim, known as "realsocialism"), not hierarchy. The problem is that such an attempt requires people with an open mind and the courage to actually try something new (the new would be: to refuse the violence). The realsocialism failed because it was basically - in its core - a way of capitalism in disguise, still exploiting the mass of people by a clique of little groups. I think their way of living (in the documentation) is threatened by the aspiration of pseudocommunist china.
