    Beautiful prose. People just don’t write like that anymore. What an extremely interesting article. It reminds me of a few things. First, it reminds me of the overarching theme of the Dune series, that an oppressed group, one given power, will use it against others. They just don’t learn. Another is the way men and women help each other, women soften men, men keep female narcissism and hormonal emotionalism in check. This has obviously gone overboard, as feminists attempt to eradicate the male sex. Finally, this goes to show how women drive consumerism. “You wouldn’t want to be caught dead in sheepskin, young knight.”

    An important point in this article, aside from the interesting info about love courts, is that it points to the origins of gynocentrism.

    Note the opening lines: The Tractatus (published 1190 AD) is based closely in theme and substance on Ovid’s Ars Amatoria (published 1 BC). In both works the conception of love is that of illicit passion; but there is a significant difference. Whereas in Ovid man is the master employing his arts to seduce women for his pleasure, in Andreas woman is the mistress, man her pupil in homage, her vassal in service. What operated to change men’s attitude toward women from one of gross cynicism in Ovid to one of homage and deference in Andreas? What was the significance of the cult of women propounded in the Tractatus to the society in which it flourished?

    This provides testament, one confirmed by all authorities on that period, that women of the Middle Ages suddenly broke free of social contraints and began to control gender relations. This is also the period that feminists claim gave birth to the first feminists (called protofeminists).

    This is when, for the first time in history, gynocentrism became a continuous, widespread cultural phenomenon that is with us to the present and culminates in today’s chivalry-enabled feminism.

    The actors in this 800 yr old play are listed below, followed by the titles those same actors are known by today:

    Courtly Ladies = feminists (priviledged women calling for special treatment of all females/damsels)
    White Knights = White Knights (doing courtesy, chivalry, gallantry and tournaments between men – all French terms)
    Troubadours (type 1) = PUAs (promoting sexual fulfillment in exchange for pandering to women’s whims)
    Troubadours (type 2) = profeminist males or ‘manginas’ (seeking platonic love and approval by pandering to women’s whims)

    I must say that I’m very jealous you where able to get this article posted exactly seven days before I completed mine. Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine was a name I had forgotten for while, but a story I had remembered and told to people in conversations about male gender roles and female objectification. I’ve comment about it on youtube posts and blogs, as well as face book. I recently found time to research her and remember the name, so I was going to post an article, but it looks like now it will only seem as if I am a mimic. lol oh well….
