62. Well, obviously patriarchal thinking doesn't much care for nature ...
Edited on Thu May-26-11 12:02 AM by defendandprotect
as we see from their war on nature --

and animal life -- and humans --

Obviously, patriarchy thinks that it knows better than NATURE --

Exploding nuclear weapons, building nuclear reactors to boil water for steam --

Exploitation of all nature which has led to total pollution of the planet -- our

air, soil, oceans, drinking water -- destruction of forests -- and Global Warming.

Nature did not provide for "death of females in childbirth" --

Patriarchal contrivance to remove midwives from childbirth -- and to substitute males

as "midwives" to control childbirth had much to do with that --

Additionally, remedies and plants/drugs which WICCA -- female wisdom -- supported and

understood were destroyed -- and the knowledge of them and the material. This is widely known.

Your ideas of why females are "Better" or more "trust worthy" is not a thought that spawns from the modern concept of gender equality. I'd prefer a world where people of all genders are judged only on their individual merits and their gender is nothing but an after thought that dwells only in the limited realm of human reproduction.

I'd suggest that you explore information about female-centered societies -- which has nothing

to do with female-domination as patriarchy equates to male-domination.

Best definition I've ever heard of "Feminism" is "anti-domination of anyone by anyone else."

Otoh, certainly patriarchy and organized patriarchal religion are mainly directed towards

male-supremacy and male-domination.

As long as females can create new life and males cannot, there will always be consciousness

of gender.

And many other reasons why that is so!

However, let's trust that we all support egalitarian societies.

Patriarcy is "The bird with one wing" --
