Origin Of Misogynism/anti-feminism From The Biblical Perspective by Torch1(m): 4:34pm On Jan 11
Origin of misogynism/male chauvinism/anti-feminism from the biblical perspective.

When God created humans his intention was for both man and woman to be companions and not for man to lord over woman.
But what happened, how did this anomaly - misogynism - creeped into human society.

After God created Adam, He discovered Adam needs a companion.
According to Genesis 2:18,
"And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helpmeet for him."

But when serpent deceived Eve, she succumbed by eating the forbidden fruit and gave Adam also to eat.

For this God laid curses upon woman which one of them is "male chauvinism".
In Genesis 3:16, To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you.”

From that moment in the Bible, women or wives were regarded as their father's or husband's properties.
Women weren't even counted during any head count in the Bible.

In the Ten Commandments: “The wife is classified as her husband’s property, and she’s listed with the slaves and work animals(Exodus 20:17).

An unmarried woman could be compelled to marry her rapist, as long as the rapist could pay the standard bride price and the woman’s father was comfortable with the marriage.(Deuteronomy 22:28–29)

"Let a woman learn in silence and full submission. I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to be silent”(1 Timothy 2:11-12)


From the above quotes who do we blame for this anomaly called misogynism?
Is it man, woman or the words from the book of God?

The book of Genesis speaks of man having authority of the woman because he was placed in charge of what God had created in the garden of Eden. This means men and women were never equal ; even from the beginning.

God gave authority to both Adam and Eve in the beginning.
Genesis 1:27-28
27. So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

28. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”

Which part did God exclude Eve?

Keep shut and quote 1:27 in full. The verse there said "God created man in his image ..." not woman , so there was never equality . In fact the scriptures make us understand that the woman was created in the glory of man not God(1 corinthians 11:7), and she is subject to man . Never was there any form of equality between men and women in the bible

Funnily enough, Moses wrote the book of Genesis and he wasn't born when all these events took place. All he need to justify all these was that God gave it to him.

He used the name of God to enslave women. The same way he broke the 10 commandments God gave to him in other's people land. God don suffer.

Misogyny is an anomaly but inequality isn't misogyny it's a fact simple division of labour


If you have a problem list the religions that are better in your view I'm guessing Islam or Hinduism

What's in the Bible is simply misogynism, don't bring inequality into it. There is no need of comparing which religion is less misogynist, they all promote the anomaly!
