For Women Have Always Been Taken For Granted..

Posted on the 04 March 2013 by Chhavivatwani @chhavivatwani
At Imaginary Garden With Real Toads, we the women are screaming to be heard for our rights and against abuse. It's the month of Woman Scream International Poetry Festival, and yes, I will scream. For Martin Luther King says,'We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.'

the rape of the sabine women

The Rape Of The Sabine Women, by Pietro da Cortona


I cannot drink in joy, buy my own bottle of wineAnd carry it for the morrow, the Police will harrowWith their stares and comments, and the scene they inventMen have open shops for Bordeaux, while women scrutinized thorough
And if I say I drink, I'm shamefulIf I dress too sexy, a whoreIf I smoke and befriend a manThen men have the rights to rape me sore
For women have always been taken for grantedThe image of Goddess, no, I am cursed and daunted
I cannot wear a dress, those sexy little girly thingsAnd go out in public, all their eyes will affixOn me, my naked legs, my naked arms, bosomed chestShredding every piece of the dress, their eyes thus afflict
And if I say I drink, I'm shamefulIf I dress too sexy, a whoreIf I smoke and befriend a man,Then men have the rights to rape me sore
For women have always been taken for grantedThe image of Goddess, no, I am cursed and daunted
And if I utter a word, without a man's consentIf I so much as breathe, it makes them seetheMillions of mocking mouths, twice the eyes aboundSew up my lungs and cut my tongue for their blithe.
And if I say I drink, I'm shamefulIf I dress too sexy, a whoreIf I smoke and befriend a man,Then men have the rights to rape me sore
For women have always been taken for grantedThe image of Goddess, no, I am cursed and dauntedFor woman have always been taken for granted

eve is cursed by god

Eve is Cursed by God, by Marc Chagall

(I researched what the curse was, I found out the curses and the truth in Genesis. The curses are:
"Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children;..." Gen 3:16a {KJV}
"To the woman he said, Great will be your pain in childbirth; in sorrow will your children come to birth;..." Gen 3:16 {BBE}
But it wasn't the God who cursed Eve, but the serpent (Devil) cursed her.
As Cherie Goodpasture explains,
"el- 413 toהָאִשָּׁ֣ה ha·'i·shah 802 the woman
אָמַ֗ר a·mar 559 saidהַרְבָּ֤ה har·bah 7235 will greatly
אַרְבֶּה֙ ar·beh 7235 multiplyעִצְּבֹונֵ֣ךְ i·tze·vo·v·nech 6093 your pain
וְהֵֽרֹנֵ֔ךְ ve·he·ro·nech, 2032 childbirth
בְּעֶ֖צֶב be·'e·tzev 6089 painתֵּֽלְדִ֣י te·le·di 3205 will bring
בָנִ֑ים va·nim; 1121 children{Hebrew Transliteration with Strong's Numbers}

Notice again no "I". God is not saying "I" am doing this. He is simply telling Eve this is what is going to happen as a result of your bad choice. So the consequence for sin is NOT God's plan it is the Devil's plan. This is happening to Eve because the Devil is pissed at Eve! Why is the Devil so pissed? Because Eve was brought back from his side to the side of God. "I will put enmity between you and the woman". Moreover it is through the woman that the Devil will be defeated. So really in Gen 3:15 God is saying "Devil, this is what will happen to you by the woman" and Gen 3:16 "Eve, this is what will happen to you by retaliation of the Devil."You can read the whole article here. All I wanted to find out was why only the women are treated like this? And it isn't God's doing. It's the Devil's work. So a question to all men: are you a child of God, or of the Devil?)
