Stamp: God Doesn't Degrade Women by 8manderz8 Stamp: God Doesn't Degrade Women by 8manderz8
This was supposed to be a rant about the Bible and all that, but one particular sentence in =RebiValeska's description of her stamp got to me. Plus, the people who left comments on her stamp said it far better than I probably could have. So, my apologies for the giant description and rant about the statement, "Feminism is based in arrogance" .

Feminism truly began in the 19th and 20th centuries, back in a time when women did not have the right to vote or to run for office. Women had a "proper" role, one dictated by conduct books as the "feminine ideal." They did not have an equal standing in the world of men. They were told how much to spend on beauty supplies in order to satisfy the annual beauty needs of every woman. They had to face constant humiliations in the workplace, such as gibes at their mental processes, sexual jokes and aggression, invisibility except as sexual objects, and cold demands for more efficiency:

From A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn:

"A commercial "Guide to Clerical Times Standards" printed a question-and-answer column:

Q: I'm a businessman, and my secretary seems to move entirely too slowly. How many times a minute should she be able to open and close a file drawer?
A. Exactly 25 times. Times for other "open and close operations" ... are .04 minutes for opening or closing a folder, and .026 minutes for opening a standard center desk drawer. If you're worried about her "chair activity," clock her against these standards: "Got up from chair," .033 minutes; "turn in swivel chair," .009 minutes."



Do not sit here and tell me that feminism is based on arrogance. Do not demonize feminists if you enjoy the rights that they won you. If you hate feminists so much, then how about you go back to the way things used to be? In fact, here's a little checklist to get you started:

☑ Give up your right to vote.
☑ Give up any hopes of being anything more than a housewife or something more "suitable" for a woman to work as.
☑ Get used to being regarded as an object instead of a human being.
☑ Say nothing when they talk about how your sweet little mind just can't seem to wrap around concepts.
☑ Learn to like it when men aggressively come at you when they're feeling particularly horny, because you are not a person - you are a sex object.
☑ Accept your fate as a second-class citizen.

I mean, you certainly don't want to be one of those horrible, arrogant feminists, oh no. Because you're right. Wanting equal rights for all sexes is soooo arrogant.

Disclaimer: I do understand that since the initial movement of feminism, there has been a slight change in the mindset of some of the women who call themselves feminists. I do know that there are women who seek to award women more rights than men. I am not one of those feminists. I believe in the equality of all sexes. So please, do not tell me something that I already know, or that has been mentioned in previous stamps of mine, because I have heard it all before. Thank you.

Um... dude. Have you read the bible? It depicts men in a much more negative light than women. (I think the most unkind depiction of a woman in the bible included prostitutes and sexually obscene behavior.)

The bible blames men for all violence andm ost sexual depravity, and that's why I'm an athiest, because the bible clearly hates men... and women... and everyone. You're not special.

If you honestly believe that women in the bible are treated or represented with more malice or disrespect, go back and read it again, this time tally up the sins committed by and against each man and each woman, and compare.

I don't care how you FEEL the bible represents women, I care about what it OBJECTIVELY states.

For the record, you can do this outside of religion and in the real world, but this experiment would completely disprove your philosophy of women = victim.
