Men by virtue of being physically stronger take the role of protectors and providers for their families when you abandon your role as the protector you become less than a man.
Although civilizations grew and cultures begin to form, this specific role of a man continued to develop so much so that it became ingrained over centuries, that men were deemed more powerful, and thus superior but this is a mistake made so often men and women are two halves if you weaken one half of your body can you claim to be whole? The climate crisis is the single biggest threat facing humanity. It’s no exaggeration to say it touches every aspect of our lives, from the production of wine and coffee to global internet infrastructure and energy systems — not to mention it has the potential to undo the last 50 years of progress and development in global health. It also will have a strong affect on our human interactions and love relationships surviving climate and extreme weather will take a unity many people seem to be lacking.
In todays society equality is not based on physical or mental acuity but on societal strictures. The state mandates who is equal or not equal and therein lies the problem. It is unnatural for it makes lesser men leaders and superior women powerless. There is no chance for equilibrium and systems begin to topple as the leadership is weak and easily swayed by greed and avarice or lust for more power. The world today is moving towards equality but not by choice, but because survival necessitates that we choose our partners and our leaders by merit and not superficial accoutrements, but it will take time to undo and change mindsets developed over centuries.
Obstructive traditions arose not from men’s hatred or enslavement of women but from the natural division of labor that had developed over thousands of years during man's agrarian period. This heavily impacted culture and religion, two of the most important forces controlling the world today. Which is one reason so many from the so called middle East are willing to imprison torture and kill women in order to protect their culture and religious heritage from change even if it means the eventual fall of the whole society.
Women are more discerning than men, more calculating, more thoughtful, more spiritual, more loyal, and more disciplined and they can handle emotional pain and psychological torture far better than men. A woman can suffer trauma, deprivation, shame, sheer cruelty and beatings from a man and still stay with him simply for the sake of the children. A woman can do anything and take anything for, or from, a man that she truly loves. But being in touch with your emotions is not the same as being controlled by them. More often then not it is the man who exhibits loss of emotional control. Crimes of passion causing him to kill those he loves because he held in his emotions until he had a psychotic break. This has happened all too often for centuries.
Orthodox and organized religions constantly teach men to distrust women because they want to take the place of women in guiding and influencing a mans direction a women more often than not will seek to protect the man from entering spaces that would endanger him and thus the family unless their is a logical reason for that risk. Empowering another male or group of males is usually not a good reason unless it affects the well-being of the family unit.
The religious leaders will proclaim, "If you are rich, pretend that you are poor to a woman and you will know her true nature. If you are poor, pretend that you are rich to a woman and you will know what she is really after. A woman that abandons a man when he is going through difficulties is not worth taking back when those challenges have been overcome. Beware of a woman’s love, for at the slightest hurt, it can turn to hate. Women gossip and talk, yet a woman keeps deeper secrets than any man." All these things can be true but to make generalizations only encourages distrust and the way to solve that is to openly discuss things eye to eye and make your assessments then not through a filter from someone who more likely than not has never had a sound and fruitful relationship with a woman.
If we end up living in a world where the economy and the environment have been completely reshaped by climate change, many aspects of our lives may be dramatically changed but romantic relationships have a way of being consistent and resilient despite what’s going on these are the traits we must cultivate within ourselves. Global warming increases the frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods and wildfires, which can lead to symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. These kinds of negative emotions are also associated with a dip in sex drive. So although your partner is in need of comforting sex might be the furthest thing from their minds in times of heightened anxiety.
Then there’s the extreme heat. Hot and humid days can affect sex drive as well as fertility, making people feel tired and lethargic as the body tries to keep cool. A study found that days above 80°F resulted in significantly fewer births approximately eight to ten months later. On average, hot days were associated with a reduction in birth rates nine months later by 0.5 percent, which amounts to about 1,500 less births in the USA for each day over 82 degrees.
If global change reached 3 degrees Celsius in the USA making every day over 82 degrees that would equal to approximately half a million less births each year! Food and water security, extreme weather events, and disease caused by climate change put women’s reproductive control at risk. For example, natural disasters and forced migration can hinder access to safe, high-quality reproductive health services. The majority of the planet has their own cultural infrastructure in place to ameliorate this but the west would see an unprecedented drastic fall in births if hospitals became inaccessible.
Dating apps like Tinder and OkCupid have both reported that more users are including climate change in their dating profiles over the past few years. There was also a 240 percent increase in the mention of climate change and environmental terms on OkCupid profiles from 2018 to 2020. In 2019, Tinder revealed that ‘climate change’ and ‘environment’ topped the list of what their Gen Z users cared about when deciding who to date.
