PostSubject: Rhetoric of FW   Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:19 am

Rhetoric

The Gorean novels are filled with much rhetoric concerning beliefs about free women. Many of these sayings allege that all women are natural slaves. Most of these sayings are not mentioned in the presence of free women though. They are what men say when they get together to discuss women.

"Every woman in her heart wants to wear the chains of a man." (Priest-Kings of Gor, p.204)

"The institution of freedom for women, I decided, as many Goreans believed, was a mistake." (Nomads of Gor, p.286)

"�the garments of a free woman are designed to conceal a woman's slavery,�" (Rogue of Gor, p.276)

"On Gor it is said that free women are slaves who have not yet been collared." (Magicians of Gor, p.22)

"A Gorean saying came to mind, that the free woman is a riddle, the answer to which is the collar." (Magicians of Gor, p.50)

Some of these sayings also allege that true love can only exist between a man and a kajira, not a free woman. The general idea is that, for women, the price of being free is that they must sacrifice love. Again, these are sayings generally not spoken of in the presence of free women.

"A woman , I had learned, must choose between freedom and love." (Slave Girl of Gor, p.412)

"A man can truly love only that woman who is truly his, who belongs to him. Otherwise he is only a party to a contract." (Slave Girl of Gor, p.444)

"�no free woman, because she is free, can truly compete for the attention and affection of a man as can a slave girl." (Fighting Slave of Gor, p.217)

"Bondage is a soil in which it is natural for love to blossom." (Blood Brothers of Gor, p.113)

Yet, despite all this rhetoric, free women remain in the overwhelming majority on Gor. If all women are natural slaves, then why haven't the majority of women been enslaved. If true love is only find with a slave, does that mean the vast majority of male Goreans live without love? It seems obvious, based on the evidence within the books, that all of this rhetoric is mostly just talk. It is manly banter that has little basis in the realities of Gorean society. Though generalizations can be made about free women, there are surely many exceptions as well. Some free women are capable of intense passion and love. Many men must find contentment with their Free Companions as Gorean men in general are said to be happy people. Do not confuse the rhetoric with the reality. Look deeper than the surface to find the true answers of Gor.
