34. That entitlement is rooted in patriarchal religions

Any religion in which women are defined as inferior to men -- and that would probably include most of the world's religions -- is the common denominator for misogyny on a global scale. For me there's just no way to be polite about this issue. It is what it is. For thousands of years our major religions have indoctrinated countless millions that women ARE inferior, that they are the root of evil, that their very sexuality is nasty and evil, that they cannot be leaders, cannot be trusted, that they must be silent and obedient.
So no matter how much sex ed you have, how many talks you have with kids about sexuality, it's going to be damn difficult to hurdle that sense of entitlement unless you confront its source. It would be like treating the symptoms rather than the disease.
