The Religious Oppression of Women through history to modern day.
Have you had your daily does of misogyny? If not then get ready for some old fashioned Southern Fried teachings. O woman thou art guilty of original sin. Woe unto you, for rising above your position. Or some crap like that. Well ladies, get a bucket. You might need to vomit a few times getting through this one.
10. A husband has sex with his wife, as a plow goes into a field.
The Quran in Sura (Chapter) 2:223 says:Your women are your fields, so go into your fields whichever way you like . . . . (MAS Abdel Haleem, The Qur’an, Oxford UP, 2004)
9. Husbands are a degree above their wives.
The Quran in Sura 2:228 says: Wives have the same rights as the husbands have on them in accordance with the generally known principles. Of course, men are a degree above them in status . . . (Sayyid Abul A’La Maududi, The Meaning of the Qur’an, vol. 1, p. 165)
8. A male gets a double share of the inheritance over that of a female.
The Quran in Sura 4:11 says:The share of the male shall be twice that of a female . . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 311)
7. A woman’s testimony counts half of a man’s testimony.
The Quran in Sura 2:282 says: And let two men from among you bear witness to all such documents [contracts of loans without interest]. But if two men be not available, there should be one man and two women to bear witness so that if one of the women forgets (anything), the other may remind her. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 205).
6. A wife may remarry her ex—husband if and only if she marries another man and then this second man divorces her.
The Quran in Sura 2:230 says:And if the husband divorces his wife (for the third time), she shall not remain his lawful wife after this (absolute) divorce, unless she marries another husband and the second husband divorces her. [In that case] there is no harm if they [the first couple] remarry . . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 165)
5. Slave—girls are sexual property for their male owners.
The Quran in Sura 4:24 says:And forbidden to you are wedded wives of other people except those who have fallen in your hands [as prisoners of war] . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 319).
4. A man may be polygamous with up to four wives.
The Quran in Sura 4:3 says:And if you be apprehensive that you will not be able to do justice to the orphans, you may marry two or three or four women whom you choose. But if you apprehend that you might not be able to do justice to them, then marry only one wife, or marry those who have fallen in your possession. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 305)
3. A husband may simply get rid of one of his undesirable wives.
The Quran in Sura 4:129 says:It is not within your power to be perfectly equitable in your treatment with all your wives, even if you wish to be so; therefore, [in order to satisfy the dictates of Divine Law] do not lean towards one wife so as to leave the other in a state of suspense. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 381)
2. Husbands may hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives (quite apart from whether they actually are highhanded).
The Quran in Sura 4:34 says:4:34 . . . If you fear highhandedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great. (Haleem, emphasis added)
1. Mature men are allowed to marry prepubescent girls.
The Quran in Sura 65:1, 4 says:65:1 O Prophet, when you [and the believers] divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed waiting—period and count the waiting—period accurately . . . 4 And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet. As for pregnant women, their period ends when they have delivered their burden. (Maududi, vol. 5, pp. 599 and 617, emphasis added)

I don't just want to fill your head with hate for Muslims, now ladies that would be unfair. In fact every religion is just as guilty. So guilty in fact that I am bringing it all to you right here. It is no wonder why a lady has a hard time getting respect. After all, if you are taught they are to be silent, servant, and subject to your whims, why worry if they are really human beings after all. So get your second class behinds ready.
I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing... Your desire will be for your husband and he will rule over you." Genesis 3:16.
"A woman who becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just as she is unclean during her monthly period. On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over. If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding. These are the regulations for the woman who gives birth to a boy or a girl. She is to bring two doves or two pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. In this way the priest will make atonement for her, and she will be clean." Leviticus 12: 1-8
"Man born of woman. Who can bring what is pure from the impure? No one!" Job 14:1-4
If however the charge is true and no proof of the girl's virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father's house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death..." Deuteronomy 22:13-21.
The burning alive of witches was justified by Exodus 22:18
"And a man will choose...any wickedness, but the wickedness of a woman...Sin began with a woman and thanks to her we all must die" Ecclesiasticus, 25:18, 19 & 33
"Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water....." This passage describes the action that a husband could take if he suspected that his wife had engaged in an adulterous relationship. He would take her to the tabernacle, where the priest would make a magical drink consisting of holy water and sweepings from the tabernacle floor. He would have the woman drink the water while he recited a curse on her. The curse would state that her abdomen would swell and her thigh waste away if she had committed adultery. In that era when medical treatment was almost unknown, the treatment would probably have resulted in her death. If she were pregnant at this time, the curse would certainly induce an abortion. There was no similar magical test that a woman could require her husband to take if she suspected him of adultery. Numbers 5:17-31
|Sarah gave permission to her husband Abraham to engage in sexual intercourse with her maid, Hagar: "Sarai said unto Abram...I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her." This was likely done without the consent of Hagar, who had such a low status in the society of the day that she was required to submit to multiple rapes at her owner's command.Genesis 16:2|
|The men of Sodom gathered around Lot's house, and asked that he bring his two guests out so that the men can "know" them. This is frequently interpreted as a desire to gang rape the visitors, although other interpretations are possible. Lot offers his two virgin daughters to be raped instead: He is recorded as saying: "I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes." Yet, even after this despicable act, Lot is still regarded as an honorable man, worth saving from the destruction of the city. Allowing one's daughters to be sexually assaulted by multiple rapists appears to be treated as a minor transgression, because of the low status of the young women Genesis 19:8|
Don't forget ladies, being raped in the old testament meant you are no longer a virgin, and that you could be stoned to death. Also if your husband decided to have sex with you and did not want you afterward, he could pay a virgin price for you and send you home. Being divorced meant that you are low, and unwanted. Even in the time of the old testament women were to be covered including their hair. This is not isolated to the Quran, but is found in the Bible and Torah. The bible specifically states that men are not to see the valley of your breasts or anything above your calf. Hair is the pride of women and so it should not be cut or shown to unknown men.
So many laws were built against women. They are just vessels to carry children, and to be used for sex. Men were allowed during the time of the Bible to visit prostitutes, have sex with slaves, marry many women. All without needing the permission of their wife.
So when you feel oppressed by modern society, be aware of where it originated. Every religious book here states that the value of a woman is not quite half that of a man. If you feel that men see you as a walking uterus, that is because religious men often do. If you feel like your being treated as second class by them, it is because they have been taught that you should. If you hate the thought that you should be at home barefoot and pregnant, your going against the Muslim, Hebrew, and Christian god.
This is the kind of toxic garbage spewed in Churches and Mosques, and Temples around the world. This is the reason that women are beaten and killed. This is the reason that we are treated like garbage in may countries, under the disguise of respect. For us to make a change, all of us must admit this is backward thinking and only does damage to every society who follows the orders of a sadistic cruel god who is willing to abuse his subjects, and cause undue harm to women simply for being born with a uterus and ovaries. Share this with your friends and remind then that this is the toxic spew we must put a stop to before our daughters wind up believing they are only worth half what a man is, or less.
