WOMEN AND GIRLS HAVE A RIGHT TO NOT BE SEXUALLY ABUSED, YOU ARSEHOLE!
MY GAWD! This turkey is literally saying that MALES HAVE A RIGHT TO GROPE, MOLEST AND RAPE GALS AND THAT GALS SHOULD JUST "TAKE IT" BECAUSE IT'S THEIR "DUTY"!!
Dear, John Pottyshit; Repeat after me....
WOMEN & GIRLS ARE EQUAL TO MEN & BOYS!
FEMALE IS EQUAL TO MALE!
GALS HAVE A RIGHT TO SELF-DETERMINATION!
DEITY IS BOTH MOTHER & FATHER!
THE MASCULINE IS A CORPSE WITHOUT THE POWER OF THE FEMININE!
....YOUR QUEEN MOTHER MISTRESS RULER!
WHEN THE MACHO, PATRIARCHAL CULTURE OF INDIA AND IT'S HINDU FAITH RECOGNIZES THAT THE MOST-AWESOME POWER BEHIND ALL IS FEMININE....THAT SAYS SOMETHING!
This is why I'm primarily a SHAKTA-oriented NeoPagan (while being Interfaith and Universalist). Hinduism and Shakta Hinduism still have a vast, thriving, living Goddess tradition. Anything in Hindu scriptures that seem overly Male Chauvinist or "Slut-Shamey" I just disregard as Demiurgic crap. Also; Hinduism isn't monolithic and some forms can be quite Liberal and egalitarian.
In fact; The prudery and Sexism wasn't even a part of Hinduism, early-on. That stuff came latter.
I am in NO WAY a man-hater or a masculinity-hater. However; I believe that the Masculine PRINCIPLE is a pile of worthless shit without the FEMININE. Masculine is equal to Feminine....as long as the former accepts the later.
MASCULINE & FEMININE SHOULD BE EQUALS, PARTNERS, A TEAM! BOTH WORK TOGETHER AND CANCEL-OUT EACH OTHER'S BAD SIDES!
* See that pic on the right with Kaali-Shakti stepping on Shiva? She was going so berzerker-crazy that she started to trash everything and not just the demons she was supposed to trash. She stepped on him and calmed down.
* Likewise, Shaki gives Shiva his Power....which is Her Power. He is a worthless lifeless corpse without her.
* Shiva & Shakti are total equals. Shiva is Potential while Shakti is Manifestation.
....Want proof? Look at Nature! In most animal species, the female has the final say in the mating ritual (she goes with the headbutt champ or the flashiest plumage guy). In some, the female is the dominant gender. In very rare occasions, she's really the only autonomous member of the species while the male is a mindless blob (Anglerfish!). Some species are all-female and reproduce parthenogenetically. Finally; Every zygote....even the ones who'll become boys who become ultra-macho males, begin as biologically FEMALE (Why the heck do you think guys have vestigial nipples?).
Sure; In many species (including humans), the males tend to be physically bigger and stronger. Yes; Testosterone can beef up muscles and make one more aggressive. Yes; Males of many species rape the Females. However; My point is is that on a Cosmic, Genetic, Zoological, Metaphysical, etc. level the Universe and Nature has a default Feminine baseline.
AGAIN; I DO NOT WANT TO BE MISCONSTRUED AS A MISANDRIST! GUYS & GALS WERE CREATED EQUAL! MASCULINE & FEMININE WERE MADE TO BE EQUAL!
Heck! Here's Doug Walker as stereotypical "Man-God Among Men", Devil Boner....giving guys LIKE YOU and little lesson in TRUE MANLINESS....
....If you can ignore the occasional, misguided use of the gendered insult "pussy/pussin it up"....it is AWESOME!
All this Patriarchy and Sexual Double Standard crap could've been avoided if Ancient Humans, when inventing Civilization and Agriculture, let stuff like inheritance and lineage be along the lines of the Mother instead of Father. No need to fear or restrict a gal's sexuality since maternity is not a mystery. Women birthed, nursed and cared for kids but she didn't cease the ability to think and plan. Even if chore HAD TO roughly divided on sexual lines, the women & girls still deserved equal status and say and not be relegated to chattel/baby factory/slave/demon thingy.
EGALITARIANISM & MERITOCRACY WORKS! WHEN PEOPLE HAVE EQUAL WORTH AND AN EQUAL CHANCE, THERE WILL BE NO MORE WARS AND DISCONTENT!
If resources are short among your people and you see another group with more resources....YOU ASK NICELY AND YOU SHARE AND UNITE AS ALLIES....You don't need to conquer and pillage!
The human species is slowly reverting back to the egalitarian gender roles of Prehistory. We need to go back to the ways of the "Cave People" if we are to go forward as the Techno/Civilization People. Ironic? Yes! Accept it!
