Ladies, did you know there are gigantic businesses in our country that overtly discriminate against women? These behemoth money-makers refuse to hire women into some or any management positions, as a matter of official policy. And for many years they have successfully influenced politics to prevent women from obtaining many of the rights feminists seek.
Many of these businesses are multi-national in size, while at the same time reaching their tentacles into most small towns and cities throughout our country. If you live in a city of say, 20,000 or more, I’ll bet you can find at least a dozen franchises in your area that these misogynist businesses have established.
And they bring in billions of dollars annually. And a large percentage of their customers are women. And while many of these women truly want more rights for their own gender, they eagerly bring their money to these businesses. And these big businesses use this money to campaign and lobby for laws that prevent these same women from expanding their rights.
I have sleuthed around and investigated and discovered who some of these businesses are, and am prepared to reveal them to you. And with this knowledge in hand, ladies, you can get busy with your boycotting, demonstrations, and civil disobedience, until these large businesses change their outrageous discriminatory, anti-woman policies.
Here are the names of some of the businesses:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons)
The Roman Catholic Church
The Seventh-day Adventist Church
The Southern Baptist Convention
The Holy & Blessed Church, Temple, or Mosque on Your Street Corner
Okay, I made that last one up. But I think it’s safe to say that most Christian, Jewish, Islamic, and Buddhist denominations and traditions discriminate against women in some manner, as a matter of official policy.
The forms of discrimination are patchwork, and vary from religion to religion. It isn’t always about whether or not women are allowed to be ordained. For example, the Jehovah’s Witnesses consider any man or woman who has been baptized into their religion to be an ordained minister. However, the women are not allowed to be elders.
I’m too damn lazy to research all the religions out there, and detail their peculiar brand of misogyny. I’ll leave it up to you to analyze your own religion and thresh out the facts. It shouldn’t be difficult. These are official policies, you know.
By the way, I call them “businesses” because they are in the business of religion, and they tend to have lots of money at their disposal. Therefore most churches are merely “franchises” of very large national or international businesses.
So now that you know, ladies, it’s up to you. Is it worth it to you to challenge your own religion in order to stand up for the rights of your gender? Or are you very much afraid that God will send you straight to Hell for such apostasy? Heh, heh, are you willing to sacrifice your very own soul to dethrone us men from our vaulted positions of dominance?
Religions wield a powerful political influence in our society. Therefore women will never completely succeed at winning the rights they seek, until they stand up to religions. Ladies, focusing your activism on for-profit corporations ignores the root cause of inequality.
If you truly want fair treatment and equal rights, you must be willing to march straight into Hell.
