Double-check your worshipping.
Song of the Glob: A Man's World by James Brown. http://artists.letssingit.com/james-brown-lyrics-its-a-mans-mans-mans-world-k3vx6jg
I've had some questions and statements brewing in my head and now that I'm sick in bed, it seems like a good time to write a devastatingly long and opinionated globulation! Yay for you.
From the start of the bible, my eyebrow raised on numerous occasions regarding the truthfulness of the bible's words.
For example, in Genesis, Chapter 3, a snake talks. A snake talks?! A snake talks. That's believable. Snakes talk all the time! Liiike... in Harry Potter! Yeah! But uhhh... that's a fictional book/movie. - Minus one more point for the bible. What if the snake talked to Adam first? It's likely that he too would have eaten the fruit... but this way makes more sense. Adam would have eaten all the fruit and not shared...! Bloody pig! Kidding. ish. How would he have been punished? Feel pain when he reached his climax during intercourse, and pleasure only during? What a different world it would be if that were the case. And why not try the fruit?
"Genesis 3:16 To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you will bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you."" So... because of one mistake, one act of curiosity, from hundreds of years ago, women have been undermined by man for centuries. Subjected to man's tyranny, abuse, violence, political idiocy, immoralities, and so on, for ages, why? Because of this. Because of this book. Because it is God's will? Is God not but a man, himself? Do we not refer to him as such? How do we know he's not a black woman? Well, she'd be smarter and would not have done this bible thing, so nevermind. But then again, man wrote the bible, not God. But maybe he's in the form of a platypus? You're worshipping a platypus!
Until the 19th century, women were not allowed to attend schools. (Universities, more-so, and in later 19th century at that.)
Well, who wants a smart woman? Women are to care for the children and the home and desire their husband and forever be under man's thumb, without the education, therefore without the right or ability, to question ways of life, to demand anything of man, to say no. - Slaves... politely, cunningly, religiously. "Because God said so." But is he not all-loving and merciful? Clearly not, if he punishes woman so. What is she? Just a play-thing for man? Tits and a hole? A cooking-cleaning machine? A child-bearing apparatus that you can do whatever, whenever, wherever, however, with?
But where would you be without us, boys? We bring life to the world. Shouldn't you be worshipping us?
But then, on an even more literal level, perhaps the reason women feel such pain during childbirth is not because a god told her to not eat the fruit from a tree and a snake told her that, "God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.", where she then proceeded to believe the snake and to eat the fruit, getting busted, along with Adam, by the g-man, and ultimately receiving punishment for her curiosity, forever and ever... but because of contractions and the fact that a fucking baby is being pushed out from her uterus, stretching and expanding everything so that the growing, little alien can finally, after 9 months, get the hell out of her body.
I don't think childbirth should be pleasant, though. Think about it: if it were, how many MORE people would there be on this planet? :/ Nature isn't an idiot.
But, what? God did that? I bet he did. Remind me not to thank him.
