In what sense Christianity is feminine…

The true world—unattainable for now, but promised for the sage, the pious, the virtuous man (“for the sinner who repents”).

(Progress of the idea: it becomes more subtle, insidious, incomprehensible—it becomes female, it becomes Christian …) [Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, “How the ‘True World’ Finally Became a Fable: The History of an Error”, sec. 2. (Kaufmann trans.).]

What is clearly male in its rudiments, that is, heterocosmic, strikingly becomes feminine in refinement. But refinement does not mean the same for her as for him! This, Nietzsche failed to note…

It is ecstasy for her. For him it is a reminder of how unfinished he is.
