All Religions are Sexist? Well,


YES, all the most popular ones are at least!

All religions have or promote sexism, some more than others but it’s a shame they all share.

Don’t believe me here are all my blog posts for the major religions exposing their sexism and I am now putting it all in one place to fully prove just that. And to learn when the problem starts read: Evil of Religion: Get’em While They’re Young I care too much for women to ever again be religious and I want freedom from religion so: Keep Your Religion Out of My Life

Blogs on Gender/Sexism and Religion

Sexism is that evil weed that can sadly grow even in the well-tended garden of the individual with an otherwise developed mind. Which is why it particularly needs to be attacked and exposed; and is why I support feminism.  I see my gender as Intersex -Male who is mentally  Genderqueer using the pronoun “He” but I am best understood as Two gendered or Two spirited or have dual male and female persuasions and am sexually and romantically Interested in Women (I am in an open marriage). Moreover, I am heterosexual not gay or bisexual. You could say I am a  Gynesexual which means one has a sexual attraction to breasts, vaginas and femininity. But the person who has those features does not necessarily need to be a female. Yet for me personally I am only into Cisgender women. However, I am very supportive of all genders and sexualities (between consenting adults). Why is this so hard for some people?My life; the good, the bad, and the ugly on the road to the Mental Freedom of Atheism

Transgender Support Challenge

“Damien AtHope, my only problem with transgender is just that, my problem. They got a right (to quote Chuck Berry), they can do their thing, it’s their scene. What I don’t understand, and it’s my problem, not theirs, and therfore, it doesn’t really matter, is like Jenner there still has the penis. I was told that what happens with some of these cats is that somehow they don’t see a penis there, they see a vagina. So if you’re going to transgender, why keep the penis? Again, my problem.” – Challenger

My response, Not understanding can often be a problem, a good choice is to ask, real, talk in a positive attitude towards true understanding. I will not speak to specifically to what it is to be transgender people. I will, however, use my experience of being an intersex-genderqueer-male, and yes all three must be understood to accurately reflect the ontology (the thingness of things or its qualities) of what, why, and how. I try to never believe what I think about things I am uninformed and when this involves beliefs I may or may not even investigate as I at some point can use rational ignorance but if it’s about people who do matter, this compels me to understand as I don’t want to harm others. I can say we rarely can understand that which it different. We humans are a scared social creatures. We must champion surpassing this as it is in this we are then not just can we and should honor the dignity, but so to do we gain understand how to start improving your universal emotive valuing and honoring the people who touch your life. I try to see it like this, I realize that my life is written as evidence of my character. I wish to care first with others but I tell you I have a flourish humanity. This is like the feeling of having someone you care or love telling you they love you back. I burst in side with deep and calm joy as you will understand that now by trying to understand others I started understanding me, started seeing my value, I became my own friend, I started to love me. I see we have to understand, love, and show kindness. The sad truth is I in my past I use to not even care to understand and now I truly see it’s value connection of understanding, love, and kindness. What we don’t understand we come to fear, that which we fear we to often feel justified to hate, that which we hate we too often not just appose it we wish to discriminate against it, oppress, and or destroy it. May I never again be that person, it shames me that I ever was. Now I will address you posed a question but in my gender. I don’t nor have I ever been just a male. I don’t feel trans either. How many times have I cried not understanding why me? Why am I not normal, I was made fun of and shamed I stopped do PE (school athletics) what they abused for my inner sex condition of looking like I don’t even have a dick if not hard. I received an f in PE because I didn’t do anything as I did not want to take my clothes. I also feel like my brain is two genders that are enmeshed and fluctuate between of some times one and the other like a team, yet at other times it is like that are fighting one having one thinking and the other completely opposed. To tell you at times I can feel overwhelmed with this but I learned to try and understand and now that I understand it is easier. I just love them for who we are. May I always see other with eyes of love. I hope this helped you understand. I am also willing to talk privately if you wish to help understanding as I see it’s value.

12 Powerful Women that Held the Position of Rulers/Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt

Here are the names and possible dates for these women who may have been rulers. 1. Queen Meryt-Neith ruled 5,020 years ago. 2. Queen Nimaathap (Third Dynasty, 4,706–4,633 years ago). 3. Queen Khentkaus (Fourth Dynasty, 4,633–4,514 years ago). 4. Queen Ankhesenpepi II (Sixth Dynasty, 4,385–4,201 years ago). 5. Princess Neithhikret (Died 4,201 years ago). 6. Princess-Queen Sobeknefru (Died 3,822 years ago). 7. Queen Ashotep (3,580–3,550 years ago). 8. Princess-Queen Ahmose-Nefertari (3,582–3,515 years ago). 9. Queen Hatshepsut (3,527–3,478 years ago). 10. Queen Nefertiti (3,390–3,350 years ago). 11. Queen Tausret (Died 3,209 years ago). 12. Queen Cleopatra I (2,224–2,196 years ago).

Evidence from the ancient past shows that female value was likely a little different than before the sexism that later became so pervasive. Today, with our now male-centric religions or the many cultures of our current or past historic societies, which seem often to devalue or give a lesser status or limited value of women. Many present-day thinkers may find it difficult to comprehend that women could have been valued, be equal to some extent, or even hold a position of power, especially political power in early historic or prehistoric times but even more so in the Middle East region where today, the heaviest restrictions are on women’s rights.

As can be seen in all the female rulers, equality is nothing new. According to a scientific study, there is further confirmation which shows that sexual equality is nothing new even if it is something long forgotten and only now being reached for again. Evidence shows that in contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes, men and women tend to have equal influence on important decision-making. Such findings challenge the idea that sexual equality is a recent invention, suggesting that it has been the norm for humans for most of our evolutionary history. In addition, for even more validation archeologists in Central Anatolian found 4,000 year old tablets citing women’s rights.

My thoughts on Religion Evolution with external links for more info:

“Religion is an Evolved Product” and Yes, Religion is Like Fear Given Wings…

Atheists talk about gods and religions for the same reason doctors talk about cancer, they are looking for a cure, or a firefighter talks about fires because they burn people and they care to stop them. We atheists too often feel a need to help the victims of mental slavery, held in the bondage that is the false beliefs of gods and the conspiracy theories of reality found in religions.

“Understanding Religion Evolution: Animism, Totemism, Shamanism, Paganism & Progressed organized religion”

Understanding Religion Evolution:

“An Archaeological/Anthropological Understanding of Religion Evolution”

It seems ancient peoples had to survived amazing threats in a “dangerous universe (by superstition perceived as good and evil),” and human “immorality or imperfection of the soul” which was thought to affect the still living, leading to ancestor worship. This ancestor worship presumably led to the belief in supernatural beings, and then some of these were turned into the belief in gods. This feeble myth called gods were just a human conceived “made from nothing into something over and over, changing, again and again, taking on more as they evolve, all the while they are thought to be special,” but it is just supernatural animistic spirit-belief perceived as sacred.

Quick Evolution of Religion?

Pre-Animism (at least 300,000 years ago). So, it all starts in a general way with Animism (such as that seen in Africa: 100,000 years ago) (theoretical belief in supernatural powers/spirits), then this is physically expressed in or with Totemism (Europe: 50,000 years ago) (theoretical belief in mythical relationship with powers/spirits through a totem item), which then enlists a full-time specific person to do this worship and believed interacting Shamanism (beginning around 30,000 years ago in Siberia) (theoretical belief in access and influence with spirits through ritual), and then there is the further employment of myths and gods added to all the above giving you Paganism (beginning around 12,000 years ago in Turkey) (often a lot more nature-based than most current top world religions, thus hinting to their close link to more ancient religious thinking it stems from). My hypothesis is expressed with an explanation of the building of a theatrical house (modern religions development). Progressed organized religion (around 5,000 years ago as sen in Egypt) with CURRENT “World” RELIGIONS (after 4,000 years ago).

Historically, in large city-state societies (such as Egypt or Iraq) starting around 5,000 years ago culminated to make religion something kind of new, a sociocultural-governmental-religious monarchy, where all or at least many of the people of such large city-state societies seem familiar with and committed to the existence of “religion” as the integrated life identity package of control dynamics with a fixed closed magical doctrine, but this juggernaut integrated religion identity package of Dogmatic-Propaganda certainly did not exist or if developed to an extent it was highly limited in most smaller prehistoric societies as they seem to lack most of the strong control dynamics with a fixed closed magical doctrine (magical beliefs could be at times be added or removed). Many people just want to see developed religious dynamics everywhere even if it is not. Instead, all that is found is largely fragments until the domestication of religion.

Religions, as we think of them today, are a new fad, even if they go back to around 6,000 years in the timeline of human existence, this amounts to almost nothing when seen in the long slow evolution of religion at least around 70,000 years ago with one of the oldest ritual worship. Stone Snake of South Africa: “first human worship” 70,000 years ago. This message of how religion and gods among them are clearly a man-made thing that was developed slowly as it was invented and then implemented peace by peace discrediting them all. Which seems to be a simple point some are just not grasping how devastating to any claims of truth when we can see the lie clearly in the archeological sites.

I wish people fought as hard for the actual values as they fight for the group/clan names political or otherwise they think support values. Every amount spent on war is theft to children in need of food or the homeless kept from shelter.

I do not hate simply because I challenge and expose myths or lies any more than others being thought of as loving simply because of the protection and hiding from challenge their favored myths or lies.

The truth is best championed in the sunlight of challenge.

An archaeologist once said to me “Damien religion and culture are very different”

My response, So are you saying that was always that way, such as would you say Native Americans’ cultures are separate from their religions? And do you think it always was the way you believe?

I had said that religion was a cultural product. That is still how I see it and there are other archaeologists that think close to me as well. Gods too are the myths of cultures that did not understand science or the world around them, seeing magic/supernatural everywhere.

I personally think there is a goddess and not enough evidence to support a male god at Çatalhöyük but if there was both a male and female god and goddess then I know the kind of gods they were like Proto-Indo-European mythology.

The “Atheist-Humanist-Leftist Revolutionaries”

Cory Johnston ☭ Ⓐ Atheist Leftist @Skepticallefty & I (Damien Marie AtHope) @AthopeMarie (my YouTube & related blog) are working jointly in atheist, antitheist, antireligionist, antifascist, anarchist, socialist, and humanist endeavors in our videos together, generally, every other Saturday.

Why Does Power Bring Responsibility?

Think, how often is it the powerless that start wars, oppress others, or commit genocide? So, I guess the question is to us all, to ask, how can power not carry responsibility in a humanity concept? I know I see the deep ethical responsibility that if there is power their must be a humanistic responsibility of ethical and empathic stewardship of that power. Will I be brave enough to be kind? Will I possess enough courage to be compassionate? Will my valor reach its height of empathy? I as everyone, earns our justified respect by our actions, that are good, ethical, just, protecting, and kind. Do I have enough self-respect to put my love for humanity’s flushing, over being brought down by some of its bad actors? May we all be the ones doing good actions in the world, to help human flourishing.

I create the world I want to live in, striving for flourishing. Which is not a place but a positive potential involvement and promotion; a life of humanist goal precision. To master oneself, also means mastering positive prosocial behaviors needed for human flourishing. I may have lost a god myth as an atheist, but I am happy to tell you, my friend, it is exactly because of that, leaving the mental terrorizer, god belief, that I truly regained my connected ethical as well as kind humanity.

Cory and I will talk about prehistory and theism, addressing the relevance to atheism, anarchism, and socialism.

At the same time as the rise of the male god, 7,000 years ago, there was also the very time there was the rise of violence, war, and clans to kingdoms, then empires, then states. It is all connected back to 7,000 years ago, and it moved across the world.

To me, the “male god” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 7,000 years ago, whereas the now favored monotheism “male god” is more like 4,000 years ago or so. To me, the “female goddess” seems to have either emerged or become prominent around 11,000-10,000 years ago or so, losing the majority of its once prominence around 2,000 years ago due largely to the now favored monotheism “male god” that grow in prominence after 4,000 years ago or so.

My Thought on the Evolution of Gods?

Animal protector deities from old totems/spirit animal beliefs come first to me, 13,000/12,000 years ago, then women as deities 11,000/10,000 years ago, then male gods around 7,000/8,000 years ago. Moralistic gods around 5,000/4,000 years ago, and monotheistic gods around 4,000/3,000 years ago. 

To me, animal gods were likely first related to totemism animals around 13,000 to 12,000 years ago or older. Female as goddesses was next to me, 11,000 to 10,000 years ago or so with the emergence of agriculture. Then male gods come about 8,000 to 7,000 years ago with clan wars. Many monotheism-themed religions started in henotheism, emerging out of polytheism/paganism.

“Animism” is needed to begin supernatural thinking.
“Totemism” is needed for supernatural thinking connecting human actions & related to clan/tribe.
“Shamanism” is needed for supernatural thinking to be controllable/changeable by special persons.
Together = Gods/paganism
