Welcome to America
Its really truly sad. It really is.
But men will continue to assault women. They will. There’s no stopping them.
Our culture has ALLOWED this type of behavior.
No one listens to women.
Because we are WOMEN. Plain and simple.
We don’t respect women.
“Women, you have to treat ’em like shit.” —Donald Trump, New York magazine, November 9, 1992
Do you know where most of this misogyny comes from?
The Dark Bible: Women's Inferior Status
"The social and legal position of an Israelite wife was inferior to the position a wife occupied in the great countries…
The God of the Bible decrees that woman must submit to the dominance of man.
Burn The Daughter!
“And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.” (Leviticus 21:9)
Cut Off Her Hand!
“When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.” (Deuteronomy 25:11–12)
Only in an overly obsessive male dominated culture could men create such atrocious laws. As such, the penis ranked sacrosanct in the minds of men (as it still stands today). If a male lost his penis for any reason, he would lose the right to enter a congregation of God. (See Deuteronomy 23:1)
Maybe we should lock up your penis, since men find their penis to be a source of power?
Female Births Get Penalty
“Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.” (Leviticus 12:2)
“But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.” (Leviticus 12:5)
A woman who gives birth to a child must undergo a purification ritual lest her “uncleanness” contaminate others. This not only entails her isolation, but also payments to priests for the ritual acts. Thus the male dominators had even made birth dirty.
Notice here that if a woman bears a female child, her isolation must last twice as long as that if she gives birth to a male child!
(See also Psalms 51:3–5)
“The Bible and the church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of woman’s emancipation.”
— Elizabeth Cady Stanton
“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” (I Corinthians 11:3)
“For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.” (I Corinthians 11:8–9)
The Bible’s decree of male supremacy has kept woman inferior to men for centuries. For the religious, it comes as a sad fact that a human must have a penis to receive any respect or power within the Church.
All woman should realize that such phrases in the Bible has justified for many Christian men, not only their supremacy but a reason to sexually abuse women.
(See also I Cor. 14:34–36, I Timothy 2:8–15, I Peter 3:1–7, Ephesians 5:22–24, Col. 3:18–19)
Rape My Daughter!
“Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.” (Judges 19:24–25)
Judges 19 describe a father who offers his virgin daughter to a drunken mob. When the father says “unto this man do not so vile a thing,” he makes clear that sexual abuse should never befall a man (meaning him), yet a woman, even his own flesh and blood, or a concubine belonging to a perfect stranger, can receive punishment from men to do what they wish. This attitude against women still persists to this day and we have the Bible, in large part, to thank for this attitude against women.
Silence The Woman!
“Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (I Timothy 2:11–14)
Another case where the Bible makes it quite clear that women live for man and must submit to them.
“Man enjoys the great advantage of having a god endorse the code he writes; and since man exercises a sovereign authority over women it is especially fortunate that this authority has been vested in him by the Supreme Being. For the Jews, Mohammedans and Christians among others, man is master by divine right; the fear of God will therefore repress any impulse towards revolt in the downtrodden female.”
— Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex 1949
(See also I Cor. 11:3–12, I Cor. 14:34–36, I Peter 3:1–7, Ephesians 5:22–24, Col. 3:18–19.)
I could go on, but what would be the point?
This is America. This will continue to happen.
Men hate women for speaking up and trying to defend themselves.
And these are supposedly “ Christian” men.
What kind of a Christian are you?
Think about it…
