I cannot understand why women do not rise up against this nonsense.
We do. But for every Wendy Davis
, there is a Phyllis Schlafly
. For every woman who stands her ground, and fights for women who are not able to stand theirs, there are others protecting the very Stockholm Syndrome that encourages women to feel satisfaction with self-suppression. Every time a woman goes into church, every time she opens her bible, every time she speaks with another xian, she's being encouraged to adopt some measure of self-suppression for the sake of some moral good. That moral good is "bigger" than her situation, or anyone's situation. How a woman, or a person of color, or an LGBTQ individual can want to be xian is a testament to the power of the memetic virus religion is, not a testament to the individual not wanting what is good. They want what is good, they've just been brainwashed into thinking it will only be achieved if they step out of the way. How very noble, eh?
