Fiicele patriarhismului crestin

Un articol scris de o americanica cu referire la "ortodoxia" crestina din SUA, mai exact la secta crestina cunoscuta drept "Quiverfull" - niste fundamentalisti care practica productia maxima de copii intr-un sistem de grup patriarhal. Fetele sunt crescute de mici sa fie "smerite" si sa-si doreasca sa pompeze copii din 10 in 10 luni daca se poate.


The mothers may spend their lives having baby after baby and they may believe that they’re to submit to the patriarch in everything, but they generally chose this life at some point, and knew what life was like before on the outside. Then there is the daughter. Unlike her mother, the daughter of Patriarchy has no choice.

She is told that all she is ever to be is a wife and mother. She may someday run a home business, selling herbs or dresses she’s made, but she may never work outside the home or – god forbid! – have a career.

She is told that an education is a dangerous thing. Education in the Bible and in homemaking skills are a good thing, but worldly knowledge is dangerous. The daughter of patriarchy learns early that she must guard her mind from evil thoughts and any question or doubt.

She learns early the importance of submission. She must submit to her parents, and, even when she is grown, to her father. She is taught that women must always be under male authority, and that an independent woman is a dangerous thing.

She spends her days helping her mother, cooking and cleaning and changing diapers. This is her destiny, and it is what she is put on earth for. She has little time with friends, as her mother is busy with baby after baby and she must be counted on to keep the house running.
