~How DARE You Call Yourselves Men of God~

patriarchy

WARNING

If you can’t handle the word FUCK, then stop right here. If you can’t handle the truth of how women are oppressed and violated within the doctrine and Patriarchal organizational hierarchy of the “Christian” church, then STOP right here. This is MY wall, this is MY post, this is MY story, this is MY voice, this is MY experience, this is MY truth! This is not YOUR wall, YOUR post, YOUR story, YOUR voice, YOUR experience, or YOUR truth. ARE WE CLEAR? You may proceed…I dare you.

The following quote was taken from the March 2014 Ensign, the official magazine for adult members of the Mormon Church, written by “Elder” Ted R. Callister, a member of the Presidency of the Seventy, a high ranking group within the top leadership patriarchy of LDS Church, which I was a member of until removing my records for membership at the age of 21.

“The dress of a woman has a powerful impact upon the minds and passions of men. If it is too low or too high or too tight, it may prompt improper thoughts, even in the mind of a young man who is striving to be pure. Men and women can look sharp and be fashionable, yet they can also be modest. Women particularly can dress modestly and in the process contribute to their own self-respect and to the moral purity of men. In the end, most women get the type of man they dress for.”

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? HOW DARE WE AS WOMEN PROMPT IMPROPER THOUGHTS IN MEN STRIVING TO BE PURE IN THE EYES OF GOD! HOW DARE WE AS WOMEN TEMPT THE PASSIONS IN MEN STRIVING TO BE PURE IN THE EYES OF GOD? HOW DARE WE AS WOMEN CORRUPT THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF MEN STRIVING TO BE PURE IN THE EYES OF GOD BY CHOOSING TO CLOTHE OURSELVES IN A MANNER CONSIDERED “TOO HIGH” or “TOO TIGHT” FOR THE EYES OF MEN STRIVING TO BE PURE IN THE EYES OF GOD? HOW DARE WE AS WOMEN FAIL TO HONOR & RESPECT THE PURSUIT OF MORAL PURITY IN SUCH HONORABLE AND GOD ORDAINED MEN?

I mean after all…WE WOMEN are the ones who FORCE these men to stare and fantasize, FORCE these men to sin with passion, FORCE these men to act on desire, FORCE these men to become sexually impure, as a result of our morally depraved sexually degrading ways…right? And men of course have NO power, NO self control, NO accountability, as they stare and fantasize and sin and act and become sexually impure thanks to the morally depraved sexually degrading way in which we as women present ourselves…right? Ohhhhh….that’s right. Silly sinner feminist me! Of course we women are to blame for the sexual impurity of God’s men! Of course the morally depraved sexually degrading ways in which we choose to clothe ourselves are the cause of sexual transgression in God’s men!

OF COURSE WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MORALLY DEPRAVED SEXUALLY DEGRADING THOUGHTS, ACTIONS, AND SINS OF GOD’S MEN! THESE ARE GOD’S MEN, HONORABLE MEN, ORDAINED MEN, STRIVING FOR PURITY IN THE EYES OF GOD!

AND DID YOU KNOW LADIES…AND UNDERSTANDING THIS MAY HELP EXPLAIN ALL OF THOSE HORRIBLE MEN YOU SEEM TO BE ATTRACTING…SO LISTEN UP BECAUSE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

DO YOU WANT TO FIND THE KIND OF MAN THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF?

YOU KNOW…THE KIND OF MAN WHO RESPECTS YOU AND HONORS YOU AND LOVES YOU FOR THE AMAZING WOMAN THAT GOD MEANT FOR YOU TO  BE?

WELL…I AM SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO SHARE THE BAD NEWS WITH YOU…

BUT UNFORTUNATELY YOUR GONNA END UP WITH…

THE KIND OF MAN YOU DRESS FOR.

NOT THE KIND OF MAN WHO RESPECTS YOU…

NOT THE KIND OF MAN WHO HONORS YOU…

NOT THE KIND OF MAN AND LOVES YOU…

NOT THE KIND OF MAN WORTHY OF YOU…

NOT THE THE KIND OF MAN DESERVING OF YOU…

NOPE. NOT GONNA HAPPEN LADIES…SORRY.

SO WHAT KIND OF MAN ARE YOU GONNA GET INSTEAD?

WELL REMEMBER…THAT WEARING SOMETHING THAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE “TOO TIGHT” OR “TOO HIGH” IN THE EYES OF GOD, WHICH JUST HAPPEN TO ALSO BE THE EYES OF GOD’S MEN…

BASICALLY MEANS THAT YOU ARE ONLY…

WORTHY ENOUGH…

DESERVING ENOUGH…

GOOD ENOUGH…

AMAZING ENOUGH..

FOR THE KIND OF MAN WHO SEES YOU FOR THE MORALLY DEPRAVED SEXUALLY DEGRADING IMMODESTLY DRESSED WHORE THAT YOU ARE!

How DARE the you instill this in the minds of women…

How DARE you instill this in the minds of men…

How DARE you claim this the word of God.

How DARE you.

  1. Are you familiar with 1 Corinthians Chapter 11, Verses 1-15 (or thereabouts), where Saul/Paul establishes divergent rules for men and women in relation to the Christian god? Have you read the several other gender-dependent admonitions in the Bible and the Book of Mormon?

    I don’t worry about another person’s deity or deities, so this stuff about which you complain doesn’t bother me much. [I’m male and wear my hair long; I save on haircuts.] It seems to me that the particular Mormon you quote is advising his co-religionists consistent with his religious affiliation.

    Since you were once associated with the Church of Latter Day Saints as they call themselves, you may still feel some remaining attachment to their teachers and leaders. Don’t. They’re not of your religion. From my dissociated position, you’re not Mormon. You needn’t concern yourself.

    • I want to thank you for comment, I appreciate your willingness to enage, and respect your interpretation of the intent behind this post.

      I am the voice of the girls and women, who have been spiritually, emotionally, and sexually violated, at the hands of those claiming to be men ordained by god, within the walls of a house of god. I am the voice of all girls and women, who have suffered in silence, while men like you, found comfort in reassuring yourself, “other peoples diety or dieties, are not my concern, and complaints about the treatment and attitudes of women within a church or religion not my own, doesn’t bother me much.” I am the voice of girls and women of all faiths, all religions, speaking up about a patriarchal system that lays the perfect stage for the spiritual, emotional, and sexual violation, objectification, and submission of women, brought upon by those who inflict it while claiming to be honoring gods name. And I speak for all girls and women, whose lives have forever been damaged, whose voices have been silenced, thanks to the indifference, of people like you.

      • LOL. If that’s you showing that you “respect [my] interpretation of the intent behind [your] post,” perhaps I’d rather you drop the pretense.
