The Female of the Species by Rudyard Kipling

Mirth obscene diverts his anger --- Doubt and Pity oft perplex Him in dealing with an issue -- to the scandal of The Sex! For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When Nag, the wayside cobra, hears the careless foot of man, He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can, But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail - For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. She is wedded to convictions -- in default of grosser ties;Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same, And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier than the male. But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same, And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier than the male.

The Female of the Species by Rudyard Kipling

kipling female of the species

Man's timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say, For the Woman that God gave him isn't his to give away; But when hunter meets with husband, each confirms the other's tale -- The female of the species is more deadly than the male. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. These be purely male diversions -- not in these her honour dwells. Have you not understood it? She is wedded to convictions—in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! These be purely male diversions — not in these her honour dwells. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.

And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail, That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male. But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same, And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier than the male. When Nag the basking cobra hears the careless foot of man, He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can. But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail. Unprovoked and awful charges - even so the she-bear fights; Speech that drips, corrodes and poisons - even so the cobra bites; Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw, And the victim writhes with anguish - like the Jesuit with the squaw! But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail.

Kipling, Female of the (1911)

kipling female of the species

Man, a bear in most relations, worm and savage otherwise, Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise; Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern; shall enthrall but not enslave him. When Nag the basking cobra hears the careless foot of man, He will sometimes wriggle sideways and avoid it if he can. These be purely male diversions - not in these her honor dwells - She, the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else! Rudyard Kipling The Female of the Species 1911 When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride, He shouts to scare the monster, who will often turn aside. She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breast May not deal in doubt or pity—must not swerve for fact or jest. Unprovoked and awful charges - even so the she-bear fights; Speech that drips, corrodes and poisons - even so the cobra bites; Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw, And the victim writhes with anguish - like the Jesuit with the squaw! And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail, That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male. Joseph Rudyard Kipling was a journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.

Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low, To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe. But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same; And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier than the male. This is pointing to one such characteristic of a female and not the whole definition which is in a way a complement for being able to handle things when things are tough to ensure survival of the species In my opinion it doesn't make her cold hearted but only focused on what is important for the long term without swayed by emotions or short term losses.

Rudyard Kipling: The Female of the Species is More Dangerous than the Male

kipling female of the species

Kipling is not saying women are more inherently dangerous on a pound for pound basis, or more likely than a man to win fair fight; he is saying a woman, when she deems violence necessary, is more likely to act decisively, without scruple, and without being so foolish as to allow a fair fight. Lyrics When the Himallayan peasent meets the he-bear in his pride He shouts to scare the monster who will often turn aside But the she-bear thus accosted wrends the peasent tooth and nail, For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unclaimed to claim Her right as femme and baron , her equipment is the same. She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate. She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate; And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unclaimed to claim Her right as femme and baron , her equipment is the same. So it comes that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer With his fellow-braves in council, dare not leave a place for her Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands To some God of abstract justice - which no woman understands. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book 1894 , Kim 1901 , and many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King 1888.

The Female of the Species

The female is more dangerous than the male, quite frankly because of her nature. She is wedded to convictions -- in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! These be purely male diversions - not in these her honor dwells - She, the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else! The title and refrain have been used as a title for at least three other works see. Unprovoked and awful charges - even so the she-bear fights; Speech that drips, corrodes and poisons - even so the cobra bites; Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw, And the victim writhes with anguish - like the Jesuit with the squaw!

He will meet no cool discussion, but the instant, white-hot wild Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child.

Man, a bear in most relations, worm and savage otherwise, Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise; Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act.
