Grooming. No, not the sort whereby you spending hours primping and preening. The type of grooming that paedophiles do to children in order to sexually abuse them. There is also another type of sexual grooming, primarily done to female children, that gets overlooked.
I used to call it heterosexual brainwashing. And yes it is that too. But it has more in common with paedophillia grooming, except that it is almost an open secret, parts of it anyway.
And since I had named it grooming, I feel inside me so much anger and rage, the same level of anger and rage that a victim feels when they realise the extent of their abuse. Because those of us who were groomed to be ‘heterosexual females’, and were not, or were not for the most part, were groomed for (lifetime) sexual use and abuse by males.
Whilst there is the pressure on male children to be heterosexual and to reject homosexuality, the pressure and brainwashing is not as intense as it is directed at female children. Plus, their heterosexual grooming puts them into the abuser class, not the abused class, and that is the main distinction. Generally, gay males realise they are gay earlier than females, possibly also due to many females being trapped into heterosexual relationships because of children. Males also are encouraged to think for themselves more.
Convincing females, from such an early age, that they are heterosexual and want lots of baybees is a form of child abuse. It is grooming them to be willing participants into sexual servitude (mandatory PIV within marriage), to keep them trapped within that system by convincing them they all want baybees. It takes years, sometimes decades, to get out of that trap.
You have to ask yourself, if heterosexuality and heterosexual pair bonding was so ‘natural’, why the 24-7 propaganda? And why is it directed primarily at the female children? If it were indeed so bloody natural, then girls would grow up and do it of their own accord, no prompting necessary.
It is no coincidence that in this post-2nd wave era of ‘choosy choices’ more women are resisting marriage and baybees, and the heterosexual propaganda machine has gone into hyperdrive. There are far more ‘pink coded’ toys, products, clothes than when I was a kid/teen. Back in the Pink Box you go laydees! Be girly, attract a manz!
Societal composition would look vastly different if girls were left to make up their own minds on the subject, instead of being groomed since toddlers. There would be more lesbians for a start. Most women would probably not live with male partners at all, but instead live alone or with groups of other women, with or without children. More women would avoid motherhood.
The deal for males is clear. Patriarchy rewards their heterosexuality with a live-in maid, freebie prostitute, caretaker for his children if he wants children, and a second income in many cases. That is the reward, his reward. The cost comes from our bodies, our labours, our sexual servitude, our lives.
