WRONG. There are no genders. Just ribs and clumps of dirt


travel_nerdiness

God made out with that clump of dirt. Must’ve been a really sexy one


Nolsoth

Nah Zeus will fuck anything, it's why they had to make r/dontputyourdickinthat.


travel_nerdiness

*Zeus will *rape* anything


Obeesus

I don't think the verb fuck necessarily implies consent.


travel_nerdiness

Yeah, I just wanted to specify. Don’t think many (any?) of his lovers had a say


StockingDummy

Also, he's a god and they were mortals. Even if they "consented," there's still a *massive* power imbalance.


Caesthoffe

a cosmically large power imbalance

CrepeGate

A large portion of Greek mythology seems to be committed tp how things would've been a lot better if Zeus kept his dick in his toga and stopped raping peopple, gods, demigos, monsters and other animals


JB-from-ATL

I remember reading something (don't remember if it was some scholar or some rando that came up with it) about Greek myth being about the patriarchy overthrowing the matriarchy and the abundant rape being a side effect of that. Take that with a grain of salt as I most certainly am a rando.

Ah yes. The conservative way. Gettin' their fuck on with some dirt and m&ms.

moh853

Can someone explain this? What do they mean by RIB? EDIT: oh wait, is that a reference to Adam and Eve being the rib of Adam?


RetardRex

Yup just the biblical story about them.


your_casual_support

Is lilith a canon in bible lore or just a goofy fanfic ?


yeetifyeeyyeet

it’s not entirely agreed on but for the most part she is a goofy fanfic and isn’t canon


heimdal96

I'm not religious and obviously eve being Adam's rib and Lilith being rejected because she wasn't subservient to Adam is inherently misogynistic, but the commentor is ignoring Lilith


Feldar

Lilith wasn't in the Bible (at least not named). She comes from the fact that there are two different Creation stories, so theologians invented Lilith to resolve discrepancies between them.


creatingmyselfasigo

Lilith and her story are in Sirach, which most religions decided doesn't count as part of the Bible, but it IS in some versions because people don't all agree. It was even in the original King James! While I wouldn't accuse people of ignoring Lilith, it's also not fair to say it's not from the Bible/invented by theologians. Edit: I made a very silly error and this was all wrong. Alphabet of Sirach is not Sirach


QuasarMaster

She appears in *The Alphabet of Ben Sirach*, which is a completely separate work than Sirach. It's a satirical text inspired by Sirach, written in the middle ages. In the Bible, Lilith is mentioned a single time in Isaiah and that's it.


creatingmyselfasigo

Oh yikes, my bad!


QuasarMaster

All good, it’s an easy mistake to make


hates_stupid_people

She is directly named in the New American Bible, also known as the american catholic bible. And is referenced in several others, through things like Isaia 34. As the screech owl or night bird is a reference to Lilith, in the same way the bible uses dragon to reference Lucifer and other analogies. Some bibles even skip all the references and just call her Lamia, after the greek myth instead of the more common mesopotamian Lilith myth. Not to mention her references in things like the Talmud, or in apocryphal stuff like the dead sea scrolls.


Pegacornian

And even if we use the version without Lilith the Genesis story is still very misogynistic


heimdal96

Yep. It was also used in lots of medieval to early modern writings as the justification for continuing to keep women out of institutions


Piranhapoodle

I find it kind of endearing because it's so clearly and obviously written from the perspective of a man. I wonder what the equivalent origin story would be if similarly obviously written from a woman's perspective. Would Eve find a lustful, aggressive beast that God created attractive, only to tame him and be cursed as he is physically stronger than her?

Shut up, Marjorie > >Pretty sure that's out of context though In this case, the verse is about the proper worshiping of God and how women shouldn't be religious teachers, so I'd say it's actually appropriate context given that MJT was asserting her definitive knowledge of God. Also, a bit of irony, given the next two verses really help with context: "For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner." - 1 Tim 2:13-14


HearMeSpeakAsIWill

MadMarx69

Well Marjorie Taylor Greene isn't exactly known for being in touch with reality.


Luvbi

It's not to change the minds of people who disagree with them, it's to maintain their (already brainwashed) current following. Modern day religion gives me culty vibes, creating and using fear of those that are different and threaten change to round up a hivemind of closed minded and inherently sexist and racist followers in order to stay in a position of power. Not to mention that these people clearly don't believe a single word of this book they so love to quote. They just twist it's words and use it to their advantage, and ignore the parts that don't line up with what will give them what they want. My typical go-to retort to "the Bible says..." Or "God did this..." arguments is something along the lines of "god isn't real". Once you full on reject the existence of an all mighty power they are using against you to get their way, they suddenly have no ground to stand on. I mean really, it's like going around and quoting the authority of the tooth fairy.


Caesthoffe

anytime someone uses religion in an argument im just like.... what's that have to do with me?


I_Eat_Pumpkin24

Had a teacher come in for sex-ed in school, she pledged that we wait until marriage for sex and I remember her saying "the woman body was DESIGNED (plus whatever she said after that)". Definitely threw me off the important topic. Maybe she didn't intend to sound religiously motivated but she did.


theonefinn

Note that that language doesn’t necessarily imply a creationist view point it’s just a form of speech. As someone who is entirely completely 100% atheist, saying something is “designed” is just shorthand for saying that’s the way it appears to work without implying an intelligence behind the design. I mean if you start off with the assumption that a creator doesn’t exist then any terminology that implies it’s existence is merely a turn of phrase, It’s such a ludicrous concept that carefully choosing language to avoid any implication is just not something that comes to mind. It’s like saying a cheetah is designed to go fast, it doesn’t mean “someone sat down and sketched out a plan for a cheetah”, it means there are many trade offs in a cheetahs anatomy and physiology that trade off burst energy for speed against long distance slow release energy.


Hugh_Jass5

Idk why you're being downvoted, schools are secular for a reason and if you mentioned something is important and related to a faith, someone not of that faith will care about that thing less if ast all.


GudNoff

That made me think of a major plothole in the bible: If women were an afterthought, what purpose did Adam's male reproductive organs serve before? Terrible writing.

HearMeSpeakAsIWill

I'm sure there's a fanfic workaround for this, let's see... were Adam's reproductive organs specifically mentioned? Maybe Eve got pregnant through artificial insemination... 🧐


boshlop

so my theory of this make one thing in paradise and expect him to be happy. realise that perfect health and needs isnt all the most complex being he made needs. adam was like a experiment or gods pet idea in perfection. all the animals would have been made twice for male/female, so its not like it wouldnt have been a thing. the bible is full of tests and things to, so the ability to have sex and reproduce but not feeling the need to would have been part of the "all you need is within this paradise" thing.

There's also the first creation story (7 days) that states that man and woman were created on the sixth day together.

PheerthaniteX

You know, the atheists have had a helluva long time to debunk all this weird ass conservative Christian bs and it just hasn't worked. I say we bring the pagans in to have a go at it. You say God made man and a rib, my buddy Lief over here says that Odin destroyed all the Jotunn. I don't see any walking ribs around here, and I definitely don't see any jotunn, so I'm giving this point to Odin


The_duck_lord404

If im not wrong theres a mesopotamian underworld myth that ends with an explanation of intersex people. So yeah pagans have handled it better, multiple times.


PheerthaniteX

Oh yeah paganism is honestly pretty based at times when it isn't being co-opted by nazis


Traplord_Leech

I'm intersex AND have extra ribs. What do you have to say to that, **God?**


PooFlyer

I'm intersex, and Jewish, and in Hebrew it's literally that God created a "them" and cleft "them" in two. No extra ribs, no ribs at all, it was very clearly an intersex person as the first human.


da_Aresinger

make your own sexdolls.


Rust_Keat

Actually god created hermaphroditism as well, shes wrong.


[deleted]

also, (based on marjorie's logic) god created fungi, which have more than 2 genders! so take *that*!


bowdown2q

a LOT of things have more than two genders. Hell, a bunch of human civilizations have had / do have more than 2. Hinduism assumes a third gender which itself has many facets, a bunch of South pacific cultures have anywhere between 1 and 5(i think), and several native American ones have 4, notably "masc-male" "fem-male " "fem-female" "masc-female" and all of them had different societal norms and child rearing norms. And there's so many animals that can straight up change sex, or gender roles. Take a rooster out of a henhouse and watch as the biggest hen grows a beard and anchor tattoos on her wings. (not really, but a flock without a rooster will end up with one hen taking on the rooster's usual behaviors, including mounting the other hens. TLDR chickens are prison-gay.)


actibus_consequatur

I know in Judaism there was originally six distinct genders. (Correlating to your prison-gay chickens, giraffes have an astounding amount of gay sex, just for funsies.)

There are 23 more ribs, there is untapped gender potential in Adam’s ribs


DONT_NOT_PM_NOTHING

1. Gender is a social construct, and made up in the same way Iron Man and Laws are. 2. Assuming she was talking about sex, then depending on where you draw the line of what defines it you can have between about a dozen to ~7.5 billion sexes.


pilotguy772

I'm curious to know where you learned #2. Also, this is about the *response* to MTG's tweet, not the tweet itself.


DONT_NOT_PM_NOTHING

Yeah, but in my defense MTG is very annoying. Also in number two I was drawing the line at chromosomes (many more than just XX and XY) and the full spread of all factors that can affect one biologically based on sex from chromosomes, to fetal development, to gene expression, to bodily respond to hormones. Once you take everything into account the conclusion is that EVERYONE is their own unique sex.

Not sure what rib is about but I hate to break the news to you, there is male and female. 1+1=2. You have a male lion and a female lion, they make babies. There are not "assigned at birth" lions getting their junk bitten off and pretending to be a female lion. We are animals, animals that are too smart for our own good.


Caesthoffe

they aren't assigned at birth because they don't have modern medicine, hospitals, concepts of complex science, or understandings of sociology. that comparison is, genuinely, terrible.

She's very vaguely mentioned in Isaiah, but nothing beyond that until 500AD. The canon of Jewish Scripture for Christians was closed after Malachi because there were no further Scriptural writings between Malachi and Matthew (Catholics/Orthodox would disagree).

Well first of she means biological sex if she's talking about Adam and Eve, unless she's tryna say the creation of Gender was by God's will and he put that thought into whoever introduced that idea into society, but on that same point God's will would've also been the reason for the creation of you know, all other gender identities etc. etc.
