We have reached a point of social liberation. We have elected our first African American President - tearing down the race barrier - and we stand at the brink of possibly electing our first woman President and tearing down the gender barrier.
The two choices for President today are between a totally unqualified male running in a misogynistic party and a superbly qualified woman.
Disregarding the racist bent of the Republican Party, a majority of Republican males and many of the females are not concerned when women are denigrated. Many, in this white male dominated party, feel that women are not capable of leading the country. This attitude is in line with fundamentalist Christian teachings; another large component of the Republican base.
In a literal reading of the Bible the story of Eden mimics the Greek version of Pandora, and blames women for spreading evil throughout the world; it teaches that women should be subservient to their husbands (men) and that when women act alone, evil results.
Many women still support the Republican Party as a results of Stockholm syndrome – being raised and indoctrinated from an early age in churches of the patriarchate religions.
Eve should be praised, for where God demanded blind obedience, Eve opted for intelligence.
This election could be the final curtain, and when ripped away the wizard will be exposed.
A female President of the most powerful country on the earth can refute centuries of male dominance implanted and supported by the male dominated Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions. At some point these religions will have to deal with their misogynistic doctrines. If Hillary is elected this could be the catalyst.
