How the Religious Right and the Liberal Left Justify Men’s Rape and Sexual Assault of Women and Girls

slevogt_faun_and_a_girlIn this post, I propose the reason why both the religious right (Christians, Jews and Muslims) and the liberal left – two groups who appear, on the surface, to be at odds with each other – both justify and support men raping and brutalizing women and girls. This runs deep, at least, 5,000 years, and cannot be eradicated through social change. It just is and, if you are a woman or a girl living on this planet, you need to know about it so you can try to save your own life as best you can.

Men (and boys) believe they have a fundamental, natural right to harm women and girls. They believe this is part of the “natural order.” If they are religious, they believe this “natural order” comes from God, Jesus, Jehovah, or Mohammed. If they are on the left, they may believe that it is “scientific,” in which case they will cite the behavior of animals or the work of Darwin.

It is all simply a justification for men’s violence toward women and girls. There is no “natural order” that must propogate the human race or that makes rape, as the Christian leader of the Republican Party, Paul Ryan once put it, “a method of conception.”

This fundamental belief that it is normal for men to stick their dicks in women and girls and to harm us in other ways, as well, is absorbed by the victims, women and girls, in patriarchy, who are truly bound in a state of mass Stockholm Syndrome.

The right-wing women are loving males to survive. They usually have husbands and sons or they have other males in their families they feel they must defend from the “evil,” “plotting,” “feminist,” “lying” women who dare say they have been harmed by males.

They’re a lot like Melania Trump, who right now has nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. I felt her panic when I saw the two interviews she did after her husband was exposed on tape talking about sexual assault, ie. “grab ’em by the pussy,” but he’s got her all tied up the way men always tie women up before they do other things, the most brutal and horrific things – she’s controlled by economics, by a lack of money, by a fear of homelessness and probably of her parents’ homelessness (since the former Soviets now live in Trump Towers, according to reports). How terrified she must be to be married to a man accused by so many credible women of sexual assault and rape. His first wife stated under oath in an affidavit that he pulled her hair and raped her. Think how frightening it must be to be in this situation as the third wife! Outside, she is going nowhere, she’s “standing by her man,” but on the inside she’s running for her life right now!

Right-wing women and left-wing women all absorb the deeply ingrained belief that women and girls exist for men to do evil to.  Both love men to survive in one way  or another. They completely absorb the belief that they deserve it to be done to them. This is how they justify sexual assault, porn, and prostitution. Sometimes we justify it this way even when these things are happening to us, ourselves, as individuals. We hope the world is different – that there is one man who is different. But, there isn’t. No matter what they say to us, they all hold the same fundamental belief that we exist for their pleasure – to have dominion over, as the earth – to use, to destroy if they wish and we have no recourse except to take it because it is our lot in life. They believe we like it. “You like that, don’cha?” they often say while they are beating, raping and killing us. They laugh while they rape us because torturing and murdering us isn’t just a thousands-years old belief, it’s their joie de vivre and their raison d’être.

I remember being told when I was 13-years old and didn’t want to go out with a boy (I wasn’t allowed to date ’til 16, anyway) that I “deserve whatever happens to me.” That statement from a faceless boy still echoes in my mind especially because so many terrible things have happened to me and no one cared. There was not even anyone to tell. Only recently have some of these things been considered crimes, at all.

I understand and I want you, the reader, to understand that all the terrible things that males have done to you, they have done because they hold this fundamental belief that men harming women is the natural order – it is “god’s will” or it is “how the species propagates itself,” depending on the politics and religious views of the male. Women who persecute you have absorbed this belief, as well.

But, this is not why we are here. We were all born for greater things. (This is Luciferian philosophy, similar to that which you’ll find in the works of Madame Blavatsky, that we are capable of super human greatness.) We are something other than animals. We are spirits (complex energy operating simultaneously on other planes of existence) who are capable of amazing things.

I do not expect that the men and boys who do these things to us will ever be made to pay for their crimes and I do believe that the only way to eradicate the practice of males harming women and girls is to eliminate the males, entirely. This belief that we are here for them to harm is so great in them and runs so deep that it will never be eradicated from them because it is who and what they are. They are forever mortal enemies to us. They serve no purpose except to pollute and to make war and misery for women and girls. They are nothing but poisonous weeds in what could be a beautiful garden.
