    And were there even massive persecutions of women as "witches" by the church? Heard from a historian once that this is a myth that came up during the Age of Enlightenment to smear the church; in fact, most "witches" murdered had been men, and then, it were angry superstitious mobs that started the witch hunts, initially opposed by the church which considered the belief in witchcraft a remain of pre-Christian paganist beliefs. Only relatively recently, in the 16th or 17th century or so, the church eventually jumped that bandwagon.

    So why didn't women of that day use this tool, what do you call it, oh yes, social progress (whatever that is) and change matters? Did no man yet invent this tool? Please explain in more detail.

    Social progress is not achieved by a single gender.

    Is this social progress like voodoo or something? What kind of tool is it? Why didn't the women back then use this tool?

    Incorrect. If not as central to whichever format (in the form of ruling goddess) the feminine was revered as consort. The Church's prerogatives were such that it could only prosper by establishing monopoly. Don't mistake practicality as being purely ideological. As often as not, feminine principles weren't so much accorded literal interpretation as ideals anthropomorphised. Once established, the Church had only to consolidate its tyranny via application of the patriarchal tenets upon which it was predicated.

    I already explained. Social progress is not something that a single gender can achieve.

    Can you not understand this? For progress to occur, the dominate gender had to awaken to the desired justice. This did not really occur for another 2000 years, and it is still occurring today in regard to gays, blacks and women. You see, homosexual gay rights activists (and female feminists, and black equal rights advocates) are reliant upon those "white knights" (that you so disdain) in order for society to move forward.

    A gender cannot push a wheelbarrow lacking a wheel.

    That's why it's so annoying when scumbag bigots refuse to get with the program.

    Are you saying that men ALLOWED women to have a voice? If this is so, can they not also DISALLOW women to have a voice? If I can just clear the macadamia nuts out of my head, I might understand some of these fine points of history that you're discussing. Fascinating.

    How did you get macadamia nuts in your head?

    No, I'm saying they gave us one: theirs. But bigots refuse the voice of others, because they're stupid and ignorant.
