I was inspired this week by a post from Xanthe Wyse on her God Confusion blog (you should definitely head over there and say "hi" - tell her I sent you, and don't forget to come back! Hello? Oh ... okay, fine, be like that). In "Good Christian Wife" Xanthe talked about a subject that's been on my "To Rant About" list for some time; religion's attitude toward women. If you happen to be a woman (it's okay, I don't mind, I hear it's quite acceptable these days), then I'd like to ask a question of you for which I've never received a satisfactory answer. How could any woman, regardless of background, ethnicity, or education level, belong to any of the major faiths and still maintain a molecule of self-respect? Why would you ever refer to, or even think of, yourself as being a christian or muslim, for example, when it's quite apparent from the research I've done that your religion HATES you?

Thanks -- I have a Wonder Woman obsession too. I collect WW stuff.  Have all the TV show and cartoon network stuff, etc.

Horrible, disgusting, bronze-age attitudes being promoted in the modern era as if they were somehow virtuous.  Awful.  Love the avatar, btw - a friend has a Wonder Woman obssession :)

That is one of the main reasons that I left the christian faith.  I could not take the sexism and hated of women.
