Women in black

October.13. 2018

The gender war currently raging in the country is missing one important component, and a most critical one at that.

How about the women in black?

You see them in airports and malls in many countries, most of them far from our shores. (Although increasingly, you’re beginning to see them in neighborhoods closer to home.)

Men with a bunch of women in tow, dressed in black from head to toe, herding them around like so much cattle.

The message is clear, these women have no life, they are the possessions of these men.

How in God’s name do you justify this complete domination of one gender by another?

Isn’t this the real scandal of our modern world?

I’m all for the prosecution of men like Cosby and Weinstein who used their power and prestige to prey on women and who deserve their fate and eventual fate, but where’s the outrage concerning this other abuse?

Yes, they can claim that their religion legitimizes it.

Very convenient.

Everyone should be able to indulge in their favorite perversions and claim that God is behind it.

I would argue that any religion that believes in the oppression of one segment of society and reduces them to being the possessions of another human being is not worthy to be called a religion.

(Incidentally, these same people believe in a God who will deliver to them 72 virgins in paradise.)

The fundamental premise of religion is to uplift mankind, not to serve as a pretext to enslave another human being.

So what’s the solution?

Since sanctions have proven to be effective change agents, perhaps they should be enforced here too.

But I wouldn’t be too optimistic about that happening any time soon.

In the corridors of power in our capital, the word ‘geopolitical’ is often used to justify unjust policies and unhealthy alliances.

We all know of course that’s a sham.

The true reason behind many of our policies is money.

(Especially in the current political climate, where one family in particular is laughing all the way to the bank. For example, if you’re a head of state and you’re visiting DC, you already know which hotel you’re going to be staying at. Wink wink)

So while people are getting all hot and worked up about the injustices perpetrated on one gender by another in this country, there is an alternate universe existing out there.

A universe where one gender is completely dominated by another, and it’s all perfectly okay, even decreed by God.
