"The privilege to bear life, superior emotional development, greater sexual enjoyment: God evidently favored the female over the violent, instinct-driven male creature..." A ferocious satire piece turning the tables on Arab machismo.
God has shown his preference for the female gender through a number of His divine signs. God created women to bear His miracle of reproduction, greater sexual enjoyment and self-control, and superior emotional development and understanding. It is the duty of the female to keep the male accountable within society, as he was created with less empathy and understanding of the world around him, and he is much more likely to remain in primitive practices of violent force, and sexual animosity.
God is the creator of life, his greatest sign of His preference for the female is His choice of her to carry and bear children into the world, should she so desire. Only through the female can God's miracle of life be witnessed by the natural eye. The woman was also chosen to bear the excruciating pain of child-birth, knowing well that the male was incapable of doing so. Women are natural parents, inclined with a natural love for their innocent children. The male does not have this feminine empathy which results in a high number of absent or low-quality fathers. God has also shown his preference for the woman in the Quran by putting salvation at the mothers’ feet; giving power in the afterlife to the purer gender.
The sexual process also depicts God's preference of the female. The female is able to control her sexual desires. Men, very similar to their animal counterparts, are incapable of hiding their sexual desire, which is shamefully made public through the male erection. God has made women capable of experiencing multiple orgasms. In the case of the male, his sexual pleasure is limited, and his unclean reproductive liquid cannot be contained in his child-like excitement. Surely, the male’s sexuality is one to be ashamed of.
God gifted women with a higher emotional empathy than the male, and she has a much better practice of reason. The male often cannot use his ability to empathize with other humans, making him weak in faith and much more likely to resort to violence and force in order to try to express himself. This is not the case for the woman, who God gifted with a deeper sense of emotion to understand the world around her, and a better grasp on communications to describe those emotions.
A perfect illustration of this truth can be found in the example of rape. Women have no need to force reproduction, and God did not make her pure body easily capable of committing such an animal's crime. However, the male is to be feared. The male has no means of controlling his sexuality. The male is very likely to rape (and often does rape other men, women and animals). This is despicable to God. Due to the sizeable percentage of males who rape, it is best to keep the male concealed in the house unless his going out is absolutely necessary. However, should he need to go outside, the Holy Book has clearly stated that he is to "lower his gaze and guard his modesty". Should a man be seen raising his gaze, the wrath of God will be upon him, and it is the duty of the society to punish him for such a transgression against God.
Should there be no need to reproduce with a male, it is better to have him castrated, though this is not mandatory in Islam, it is favorable. This will prevent the male's animalistic desire to rape and largely calm his violent tendencies.
Should there be no need to reproduce with a male, it is better to have him castrated, though this is not mandatory in Islam, it is favorable. This will prevent the male's animalistic desire to rape and largely calm his violent tendencies. This is more pleasing to God, and it will make him more capable to develop emotionally (as the woman is) thus increasing his empathy and faith.
God, realizing that the woman was the better gender, obligated men to provide for women so the women had more free time to advance the societies that needed their minds. In our Holy Book, God pitied the men, and permitted each man to have up to four wives, this was in hope that the man would better understand how to emulate and further develop as the female gender had—yet to no avail, as the male cannot learn to emulate the woman no matter how many are around him. Hence the necessity to keep the male under control.
My dear God-Fearing women, it is your righteous duty to control and make sure the ghastly behaviors so common to men are prevented at all costs. The male is a dangerous creation, and if left to his own means he will bring utter chaos to society. A man without the reasoning mind of a woman to control him has the potential to become a machine of insensitivity and wandering eyes, who will surrender his duties to his offspring and family to his own animalistic and barbaric instinctive endeavors.
