It is clear misogynists hate females as their equals and would prefer to see them caged and submissive. These sociopaths have been actively and relentlessly, as well as successfully working towards female subjugation since the beginning of recorded history. Why must we make up all this other nonsense regarding the will of God in his various forms?
The story that evokes these angry thoughts involves one of these horrendous rape situations out of Afghanistan. I am sure most of us have heard a tale or two about what can happen to females who live in countries with a strong Taliban presence.
In this particular instance a young woman named Gulnaz was tied up and sexually assaulted by her cousin’s husband. The rape resulted in a pregnancy and ultimately Gulnaz was found guilty of adultery and sent to prison. She gave birth while incarcerated and now the two of them fester in an Afghan jail.
The solution? Gulnaz has to marry her rapist because marriage is the only way to restore family honor and prove her innocence. If she does not agree to the marriage she will stay imprisoned for the next 12 years. Say what?? It makes no sense. This is Bizarro World justice.
It is ludicrous humanity allows these travesties to go on. How do the misogynists keep a straight face? Maybe they hold in their celebratory glee for private quarters:
“Can you believe we’re allowed to jail, torture, kill and detain human beings solely on the basis of their gender AND we’re supported by the state as well as God himself in whatever guise we give him whether Jesus Christ, Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, Waheguru, Krishna, Embu or what have you?
Not only do the misogynists have a myriad of disguises, but they are also stationed around the globe. And we’re not only talking about places such as Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Somalia and the Congo, all of which are listed among the worst areas on Earth for females to dwell. The misogynists and their message of hate are littered all over the planet, including right here in North America.
Gulnaz’s story is just one horrific story out of billions of horrific stories worldwide. The female gender is harassed, sexually and physically assaulted, undermined, ridiculed, demeaned, enslaved, and otherwise abused at all hours of the day in all regions where humans preside. Her human rights are constantly violated and her freedom of choice suspended, all of it based on one thing – her gender. Granted, some of this cruelty is more subtle than the overt brutality found in Gulnaz’s case, but the underlying message is all the same.
Misogynists were surely behind the case of an American woman, Shawn Harris. She was ordered to pay alimony to her ex-husband, even though he was convicted and sentenced to 6 years in prison for beating, confining and sexually assaulting her.
The misogynists were also most certainly responsible for the shoddy Robert Pickton investigation. For those who do not know, Pickton was the pig farmer who hunted Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for vulnerable females, often prostitutes and drug addicts.
Once he captured his prey he took them back to his farm, tortured them, cut them up into little pieces and fed them to his pigs. It is speculated that Pickton was allowed to proceed in this manner for some 20 years before he was caught, tried and imprisoned in 2003.
The question remains why it took so long to catch this monster, although recently a possible answer has come to light via Constable Catherine Galliford. She came forward a while back with allegations that the male officers involved in the Pickton investigation were not only slacking on the job – partying, taking naps, wasting time – but were also sexually harassing the female investigators, her in particular.
She claims that at one point a male constable described a fantasy to his male counterparts, right in front of Galliford, in which Pickton escaped from jail, kidnapped the female officer, stripped her naked, strung her up from a meat hook and gutted her like a pig. Then just in case this was not bad enough, these misogynists masquerading as public servants “fist-tapped” each other over the sheer delight of their sick “fantasy”.
Finally, it’s probably safe to conclude misogynists were associated with the acquittal of a child molester and rapist by the Supreme Court of Canada. The reason for the verdict? The stories of the 15 girls accusing this man were too similar and thus must have been fabricated.
What curious logic is that?
Is it so far-fetched that the SAME criminal would follow the same patterns when committing his atrocities multiple times on multiple victims? Of course it isn’t far-fetched, but it does make perfect sense when viewed through a misogynistic lens.
The stories go on and on. What I’ve described here is merely a single respiration in an ongoing cycle of hate-tainted oxygen.
My original thought was that misogynists should stop hiding behind religion, philosophy and science. But I suppose it is naïve to think they would emerge from the robes of God and expose themselves for what they are. It would be a tougher sell, certainly for their unwitting female followers (which on the surface seems inexplicable that there would be female misogynists, but I've read this explained as the oppressed being assimilated into the value system of the oppressor), but also for decent, ethical men of wisdom, conscience and integrity. It would appear God has been unfairly cast without his consent.
I started writing this back in November, so I thought I should check to see if there have been any changes to Gulnaz’s fate in the interim. What I discovered coaxed tears from my eyes and Hallelujah from my lips. Gulnaz has been set free, possibly not a westernized idea of freedom, but she at least has been pardoned by her country’s President, Hamid Karzai, and let out of prison.
