But in the Purusha Sukta there is a mantra 'Purusha EvedaGm Sarvam |
yad Bhutam Yac Ca Bhavyam | '. 'Everything is Purusha That which was
and That which is to be is Purusha'.
If everything is Purusha there is No Stree at all.
These interpretations are the distorted versions which indicate lack of knowledge of nirukta & veda bhASyAs.
There was person ( i don't remember now !) who interpreted *puruSa* of puruSa sUkta to be a male and *srI* of srI sUkta to be female. So, to maintain the balance of gender, one must study both puruSa & srI sUkta so that justice to both puruSa & stree can be equally done !
God save such souls !
