More and more young American men are feeling this "chattel" thing about women. You know the folks who bring people in the world? It's as if "we" are not human or equal to "male" standards even though women RAISED men from infancy to adulthood to have such a "standard." How can that same standard all of sudden turn around on us? It's interesting to me how many can validate cruelty and abuse to the members of their families/communities for the sole intent to launch their own need for power, greed and ego status. Women are in trouble the day men take ownership to their rights as human beings...and as we see [from behind us] this trouble is moving west. Fast! And since man need women to exist? He has to control every aspect of it [existence] as if women are not human at all..but vessels...surrogates..expendables. Not surprised. Cuz that's exacty the speeding truck on its way here to America. That's the real danger. The objectification. The tearing of humanity. Which will always cause social collapse. Making this ancient issue of the veil? The issue of men controlling and oppressing women and justifying their human worth/value by man's warped measuring stick. Veiled: to protect. Unveiled: to prostitute.
Additionally, I agree with Sista Sunnubian, the issue of sex abuse in religions completely goes untouched and yet "women" are always the "target" [or labeled] for any ritual heretic obsession. For example, [a little off topic] when Armenia was invaded [again] by the Ottoman Empire...as an objectification toward the church, the soldiers hung women naked on crosses in a line about 2 miles long until they all perished. My point? It happened but the world doesn't wanna address it. Same thing with oppressing women. We know it's occurring. We know it's wrong but many will justify it as if being a women is comparative to being a slave, servant, concubine, harlot...just the wording is now different but the treatment? In many places in the world? The same,
I dunno for me? Every time i hear a justification for human cruelty against WOMEN...I just almost lose my mind. In these days, I can't believe this Flintstone mentality is still goin on. This is how sexism blends into slavery. By believing that women do not have the RIGHT to live in this world as free human beings. The ironic thing? They give life. Scary. But!
