First let me define feminism (via google): the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
I’ve come across many who seem to think feminists are man haters, this is so wrong. Feminism is the want and fight for gender equality. You see, from the very beginning, it has been instilled in society that men are superior to women. Here is a verse from the Genesis which proves this true.
But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
Since we live in a nation that believes in the bible/God, this means people actually believe this and live by it. This means, without men, there would be no women. This then stems in to the belief that men are superior to women. TOTAL BULLSHIT. Not only does the Genesis imply that men are superior to women, Lord God PUNISHED Eve for listening to the serpent who deceived her. This puts even more of a stigma on women!
16 To the woman he said,
“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”
What? Lord God created the serpent, the serpent deceived Eve, Lord God is now punishing Eve and making Adam rule over her. But why? Why didn’t the serpent go and deceive Adam? If the bible is what us humans have been reading since the beginning, this is exactly why society is the way it is. In another excerpt of the Genesis, it says 19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah.
What? Now a man can have two wives? But then why is it that when women cheat, she’s a whore and when men cheat, he’s a stud? This is exactly why society is the way it is. Us humans have started this all wrong. Everything has a cause and effect, because of these teachings, it enables men to feel superior to women. And this is why women of the 1900’s have fought so hard for gender equality. Us women never started equal to men. We were punished because of deceit. We were already made less of a woman by coming from a man’s rib.
There are still women who believe they should be at home in the kitchen while their men are hard at work bringing home the bread. But this angers me. I truly feel if women empowered each other instead of fighting with each other, we could reach 100% gender equality. Instead, we have women blaming women instead of men. Instead, we have men who choose submissiveness over independence. Instead, we have women settling for less because men can’t handle a strong woman. Can you imagine if Adam was created from Eve’s rib? Can you imagine if Adam and Eve were created separately? If Lord God could create Adam from dust, why couldn’t he create Eve from dust? Are we humans not comprised of the same functions? The only difference is obvious.
I wish the world would come together and really see what caused us to be this way so we can deliver a different outcome/effect.
Today, I empower you to view men and women differently. I want this world to see that women are just as capable as men are. I want women to feel free as men do. I want women to be strong and embrace their independence. I want women to be able to live a life as fruitful as men. I want men to view women in a way where they stay faithful and loyal.
Stay conscious, your every action depends on it.
