DO I hate women?


For the woman who claims I hate women so much...

I would not write something like this if I in fact hated women so much!


Introduction

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.” - Genesis 2: 18, 21-23 (New American Standard Bible)

The bible is without a doubt one of the greatest writings yet produced on this Earth. Not everyone that exists is a religious person, but millions of people are all over the world. Even those who are not connected to a specific religion do have some kind of spirituality or basic belief system. It would appear that this very passage in the bible has been the foundations of the way men have and continue to perceive women throughout history and even still in today’s society.

The truth of the matter is that if you look closely and think deeply, you will notice that God did not want man to be alone therefore he created a companion for him. If you look up the word “companion” in the Webster’s dictionary you will find the following meaning(s): 1) one that accompanies another or, 2) one employed to live with and serve another. Associated word is Comrade: an intimate friend or associate.

As always you have to pick a meaning to associate with the words use, it would appear that many men see it to mean that women were created as a companion and they feel that in this instance companion only means “one employed to live with and serve another.” I find this funny because I do not know many wives that get paid to be a wife.

Women are by nature far more loving and caring then that in which most men are. Most men who do achieve a more loving and caring attitude seem do it through meditation, or martial arts. The basis being that men need something to help guide them where as most women do not actually need anything to guide them.

Women are looked at as weak and to caring; they normally sit back and allow themselves to be taken advantage of instead of always confronting something or someone who violates what they feel. Men seem to argue and fight on a regular basis when normally that violence and aggression is not actually needed. Women appear to be more of a martyr by nature then most men. They will in fact stand up for themselves when push comes to shove, by the time push does come to shove they will risk their life to defend that in which they love and believe. Take a mother and her child for example, when that child comes to harms way most of the mothers naturally offer their life in exchange for the safe passage of that child. As I said, women normally sit back and wait, in this instance though they immediately take action. This to me is a very honorable and heroic action; men tend to fight to save themselves and the child. Giving your life in exchange for another is by far the greatest of all actions. Jesus showed us that the day he died on the cross and upheld his beliefs. Many would argue that he should have defended himself and that by not doing so made him weak. Sometimes fighting will not solve anything, would he have been remembered as much as he is if he had tried to fight back? The truth is he was outnumbered by a large amount of people, to fight back actually would have been what many would consider suicide.

Eh, who knows. It was him as man (human) and men feel abandoned in times of need. I don't know why, really.

No, if Jesus knew he was here to die then why did he say, "my god, my god, why have you foresaken me?"

I don't think you hate women at all, but I do believe you are still trying to figure them out. That is normal.

What would you do if you were raised oppressed and in a culture that led you to believe your suppression was part of your nature and make-up? There are several ways to handle it. One is to speak up and fight for your beliefs in stopping the suppression. You end up for the most part misunderstood and ostracized. You might quietly tolerate your suppression, but keep reminding yourself that you don't deserve it. That is a large burden to place on anyone. You also might absorb the culture around you & believe the lie that you are made to be suppressed, that it is simply "how it is" and how you are meant to be. Or you might struggle and take up varying degrees of two or more of the coping methods.

Being a woman means being in a culture of oppression. It is a patriarchal world. That is not to discount the struggles men go through.

By the way, don't you think that Jesus, since he was present when the world was created, and is a part of God, already knew that he came to earth to die and that is why there was not a struggle at his crucifixion? That is what I have always understood. But as with most faiths, much of our beliefs are based on the idea that we are simply not able to comprehend all things regarding the Almighty. So what do I know?
