Sexism in the Bible.
Yet another few examples of the sexist attitude carried by those men who wrote the Bible. I hate how women are portrayed in these examples, and until recent times, women were always second class citizens. I share these findings to let people see yet another way the bible subjugates people into stereotypes. It pains me to see the way women can sometimes still be treated all over the world by awful men, doing awful things just because they can, and because the religion they practice co-signs the atrocities they commit.
1. Poor Eve...Of course it is the woman who is tempted by Satan to take the fruit from the tree of knowledge, and then corrupt the unsuspecting Adam. From the beginning this paints the picture that all women are evil creatures hell bent on doing nothing but tempting men to do awful things.....Sad.
2. Lot's wife. Cursed for turning around and taking a look at God doing the Genocidal thing. Turned into a Pillar of Salt. Once again, a women portrayed as weak and the righteous Lot (the man) leaves in peace and saves his family.....The same two daughters that got him intoxicated and had sex with him.....Really?????? So, now it's ok for him to do that and not become a salt block.....Lot is all about incest, but that is ok, it was the women who were the culprits....
3. This woman was not named in the Bible. The one who was nearly stoned to death for committing adultery. At the time, Mosaic at the time, the penalty for such an offense was death by stoning.......So what about the guy she slept with??? Of course, the man, the second half of that scene was not held accountable for the offense.
4. In the book of Deutoronomy, it states that if a man decides that he no longer likes his wife, he can claim that she was not a virgin when they were married, and unless the father of the girl and prove it, the punishment is death. WTF, really. So a man can stick his dick in anyone else beforehand, but God forbid a woman do the same.
There are many more atrocities against women in the Bible, but I hope that I have painted a good picture on how men, who claim that what they write is the will of God, are nothing but power hungry pigs who want nothing more than to view women as awful, pitiful creatures who must be governed and killed without hesitation if they step out of line. The same holds true, even in modern times, and to extremes with other religions like Islam. It is sick and vile, and I couldnt imagine that any decent person would ever want to be a part of something so brutal.
The Bible is the ultimate referance for hypocrisy and contradiction. Yet, people still believe that the words contained within come from a "perfect" source.
Women, are everything soft and beautiful and kind in this world, they are excellent caretakers, they bear our children, and have been persecuted for thousands of years while the men get by with everything. I know that by writing this, i paint a terrible picture for men, past and present, and I want to take time to acknowledge that we live in a time where women are getting more respect and are treated better, and I hope that trend continues as we evolve into better people and get away from old traditions that have no place in modern society. Lets all hope that one day, religions that persecute and degrade anyone no matter what race or sex they are will become extinct.
