Women in ultra fundamentalist groups are reduced to...


Recommended Posts

...helpmeets and sex objects!

Even though regarding the second they claim the opposite.

My father said something really interesting today after I had started the topic about sexism in religious fundamantalists groups. He said that in religious groups where the women are demanded to cover their bodies because they might otherwise cause temptation in other men, the men reduce them as mere sexual beings.

They don't perceive them as multilayered personalities with different interests, hobbies and talents they only reduce them to sex (which causes pregnancy and babies).

In my oppinion said men aren't able to see that some women might have some other interests besides birthing children, working in the household and being a helpmeet like making movies or being a scientist. They think women are only for them and nothing else.

I am sorry if that wasn't written to well. English isn't my native tongue.

Very good point. It is what happens when men are solely in charge of defining who and what a woman is ('cause god said so), instead of women defining who they are.

I forgot to add the word brainwashed in front of slaves and broodmares.

This. In the patriarch dream world women

Can't vote.

Can't sign contracts.

Don't speak in church.

Don't have many women friends and no friends of the opposite sex.

Don't work outside the home

Don't need education

Obey their spouse/master.

Accept discipline when they are "bad", 'disobedient', 'unruly' or whatever their spouse/master defines as deserving of discipline.

Don't pick their own spouse, but are given/sold/handed off to a man by their father, at his discretion.

Sounds like slavery to me.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
