Female supremacy is an ideology advocating a matriarchy female-dominated society. Female supremacy is related to, but not the same as, lesbian separatism and separatist feminism. It especially the biological aspects can overlap with trans-exclusionary radical feminism. Those with any knowledge of psychology , sociology , anthropology , biology , or at least an ounce of common sense consider it to be bullshit. Female supremacists engage in copious amounts of pseudo-scholarship to "prove" the inherent biological superiority of women. These tend to read like just about any other work extolling the superiority of a race or sex, this time with women shoehorned in.
Mrs Armytage is a widowed landowner, spirited, independent and very much used to having her own way and exercising total dominance over her family. She is acutely aware of social distinctions, proud of her power and prestige, and stands on her dignity to the point of becoming cold, judgemental and aloof. Her character flaws bring her into conflict with her children when her son Arthur announces his choice of a wife who is very much below their rank, and much will happen before Mrs Armytage learns to repent her behaviour. Mrs Catherine Gore was foremost among the writers of 'Silver Fork' or 'fashionable' novels, hugely popular in the early s, which chronicle the romances and scandals of the upper classes during the Regency period. Her writing drew criticism from her contemporaries for being rather superficial, but even her critics acknowledged her often brilliant characterisation and gift for satire. In the present day, when Regency romances have become so popular, Mrs Gore is long overdue for a revival, and 'Mrs Armytage', one of her best works, offers rich rewards to the reader.
A victim of a politically arranged marriage, she fiercely fought against it.

She initially believed Li Qiye to be nothing more than an arrogant braggart. She fully realized then, just how capable and ferocious Li Qiye was as he not only planned the destruction of the Tree, but lured in all of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect 's enemies to be destroyed by the rampaging Evil Typha Tree.
It is a subset of BDSM. In other cases, it can be intensely physical, sometimes crossing into sadomasochism. Those who take the superior position are called "dominants"—Doms male or Dommes female —while those who take the subordinate position are called "submissive"—or subs male or female. A switch is an individual who plays either role.
