All religious text is a collection of anecdotes and principles that translate to rules... for women. How and what and when they should eat, wear, do. It seems as though every way of living in ancient times, was organised by some chauvinist, to keep the women in check, to own the women, to monopolize them, to ensure their power remained hidden. Every ritual, every religious belief seems to be a subtle way to tell women... they're inferior beings. Religion owns her skin, her womb, her spirit, her emotions, her thoughts. Everything that a woman must feel and think and do in her lifetime, has already been told... centuries ago. No matter which religion... from which geographical area... all have a thriving bias against women. All good things go to men, even in heaven. Religion abandons it's women, even in death.
whitewings@amitkumaroy Thank you for taking the time and effort to read my words and this thoughtful comment. Really means so much to me, that u chose to engage in a discussion. I do understand your sentiment behind those words. And it's so kind of you to be so considerate ❤
However, there are certain things I'd beg to differ on. 1. If physical strength was the basis of choosing who'd be the authority figure, how come there are matriarchal societies and tribes in the world? 2. Why is it that every time a woman speaks about something that's been bothering her, it is assumed that she's ranting, being paranoid, over thinking, being negative or feeling sorry for herself? 3. I do feel sad for ancient women. My heart goes out to them. It hurts to realize that so many... millions of women would've had a better life, if only they had been born in a different era, a different society, a different family. And I'm not talking about technology. I'm talking about the crap of religion and society which forced so many women to give up on their dreams and potential, since time immemorial.
I could explain myself better with a combined discussion on psychology, philosophy, spirituality, biology and history. But that's too much work for me. Feeling lazy today I encourage you to read up Freud, Jung, Nietzsche, Osho, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath.
And lastly, I'm not talking about 'people'. I do speak for other genders as well. And I know, everyone has had their share of trauma. But that'll be a different post. Here, I'm speaking for women. And I don't intend to neutralize or trivialize or dilute the talk, by generalising things.
