From: "Nancy Gish" <[log in to unmask]>
> [This is the beginning of the direct assertion of male control. So the
authors who wrote it down imagined a vengeful and rather pointlessly cruel
god who created an eternal system of subjection because Eve did it first.]
How is He vengeful and pointlessly cruel when He warned
them not to eat of the tree?
Adam's punishment it would seem, is to have to rule over Eve (and work)
Doesn't look like he had much choice in the matter, either.
