They believe that if their religion doesn’t control women’s reproduction, then their religion and way of life ceases to function.

The mental gymnastics these people have to perform must be exhausting. It’s a wonder they have any brain capacity left at all.

>A woman is twice as unclean after giving birth to girl as to a boy: Holy shit, I totally forgot about this one. Fucking old book.

Wow! When you put them all together like that it is truly shocking. I grew up in a fundamentalist church and many of these scriptures were downplayed or explained away but the attitude of the inferiority of women was always there even by the women. My mom still spouts misogynistic things like about men being less emotional than women or they can’t drive as well as men in the snow (I live in Colorado). I’m so happy to have escaped.

So much for male supremacy. conservative men wear their inferiority on their sleeves. If they weren’t so fearful they wouldn’t keep trying to control us.
