6. "God given"

That's a major reason I dislike most of the major religions so much. The all-powerful sky wizard is portrayed as a male (and in Christianity, he has a male magical child). Females are always the lessers. And the kicker is, a supernatural deity doesn't even exist. Yet males use this figment of human imagination to justify all sorts of horrors against women and to keep women out of power. The Catholic Church has perfected the art of denying women autonomy over many centuries. And that's just one example.
