Who is the most ferocious being? I would say woman. the domesticated,confined within the limits of the perimeter of the household.
This is the truly gendered female, a being with no access to any real emotion or ethical conduct.
Her ethical stance of which she may be proud of, is nothing more than an education to a micro-conduct of everyday affairs. Of handling life on the verge of ethics, within a subdued aggressiveness.
A doberman on a leash, she acknowledges morality but has no capacity in recognizing virtue in the context of the wider "Ethics" picture.
With little education, she believes that she is capable of knowing the difference between good and bad, and all similar antithetical conditions, and she firmly believes that she is among the most virtuous.
Her petty little personality may crumble if addressed firmly, but at the same time she can exhibit ruthless authoritarian behaviour under the appropriate conditions.
You may find the "beast" at the super-market, the bus, at work. Her character is an unfortunate co-incidence, a "failure" to acknowledge nature over gender. It is the result of patriarchal rules and once the jewel int he crown of tradition, now hovering between past and present. An archaic "angel of doom" for women, and the most apparent example that violence is possibly inherent in or easily incorporated by all sexes.
She is a mother, a daughter, a wife, a colleague, a friend. She is the petit-bourgeois Cerberus, one of the wildest "beasts" on earth.
