Perhaps the most concise way to state what I have been getting at in regard to masculinity and femininity is as follows.
“In any mutual action in which party A is said to provide the masculine activity and party B is said to provide the feminine activity, party A acts upon party B, while party B is acted upon by party A.”
This says nothing about whether party B is active and energetic or not. Nor does it say anything about whether party B has done anything aggressive or taken any initiative in bringing about the mutual action in which party B is now acted upon.
It simply says that the mutual activity is one in which party A transmits and party B receives some shared object, goal, or behavior.
