you brought some joy inside my tears

The history of the teaching of human female inferiority in Darwinism


The Christian teaching of the equality of the sexes before God (Gal. 3:28), and the lack of support for the female biological inferiority position, is in considerable contrast to the conclusions derived by evolutionary biology in the middle and late 1800s. In my judgment, the history of these teachings is a clear illustration of the negative impact of social Darwinism.

you know when you've examined a word for too long and it becomes a very abstract piece? i did that with "saddles" today, too.

a few other quotes,

"Are you aware that you are, perhaps, the most discussed animal in the universe?"

"Making a fortune and bearing thirteen children—no human being could stand it."

"...that five hundred a year stands for the power to contemplate, that lock on the door means the power to think for oneself."

"Life for both sexes—and I looked at them, shouldering their way along the pavement—is arduous, difficult, a perpetual struggle. It calls for gigantic courage and strength. More than anything, perhaps, creatures of illusion as we are, it calls for confidence in oneself."
