Do Women Have Souls?
Ah yes, the age old question! How many times have we asked ourselves? Well, actually, never. It never did occur to me, in fact, when I heard there is a book out of this title I thought WTFFFF???? Who, what, Why, on Earth, would someone think up that title? I thought it ludicrous and I found myself laughing – surely the work of some nutty right winger??
Later, while googling the question, “Do women have . . . google filled in the suggestion “Prostrate”, “Wet Dreams”, “Groins, “Adams Apples” – Well it seemed no one was asking the same question I was, but then I found the real debate, you see when God created man, he breathed life into him, but not her, hence, women have no souls, and I suppose if your religious, there endeth the debate? But take religion out of it and Its irrelevant, because if you don’t believe in religion, then there’s no such thing as a soul, and no one has one.
Never mind all that tho, religion exists, and I always assumed we all had souls, equal opportunities and all that – but what if women really don’t have souls?? What is the evidence for & against?
Well, I haven’t read the book, (I’m not actually sure what the title is now, I heard of this idea a yr or 2 ago, and its troubled me off and on during moments of incredulity) – so anyhow,
It seems to me that the idea of “Soul” (in these enlightened times) is owned by men and women, its divided amongst us, the people as it were, and its inherited a lot of “man-crap” for instance, initially, the idea of a soul (as we know it) comes handed down from Judaic stuff which was patriarchal, but just because its dated doesn’t make it useless, its interesting to think of how that evolved from something pretty brutal by todays standards – and how it effects men and women even today. I’m not sure how best to unravel it, considering I have no idea how to re-ravel !
It just seems to me that women have all the caring duties, and men have all the not caring duties, or visa versa, (depending on what aspect you’re looking at and what mood you’re in) But really, this is deadly serious, its high time all this was sorted out!
Men can be right serious about saving souls / you don’t meet so many women preachers – women it seems to me, gravitate towards meditation much more than men, men prefer to “sort things out” while women prefer to accept, and deal with, which is actually much more practical, but hardly moral, surely its more moral to fight for whats right than to accept whats not?
Then there is testosterone, women don’t have to deal with that – we men, we have such a difficult time behaving appropriately!! 😉
What if its women who have souls, and men who don’t? What if the balance has shifted – after millennia of men acting out of line, women have in fact inherited the better part of the experience we call “Life” ?
Maybe thats whats really going on? Men are in search of soul, and women have it? And women are the ones who know it? Seems legit!
