|Look we exposed a new oppressive layer!|
Christianity Today has a quote that I see as universal in some aspects, but when it comes to our culture it gets blown off.
While women do suffer at the hands of men, the authors point out that it is women who abort their female fetuses, who cut the genitals of their daughters, who favor their sons over their daughters for education and medical treatment, and who often abuse their daughters-in-law. "In short, women themselves absorb and transmit misogynistic values, just as men do. This is not a tidy world of tyrannical men and victimized women, but a messier realm of oppressive social customs adhered to by men and women alike."All over the world we have social customs, and belief systems that can be oppressive. It's never a tidy world, but often looks like the layers of an onion.
Once you deal with the top layer, and peel it away? You normally have different issues to deal with underneath.
