Here’s how I think it happened:
First, men constructed fantasies about their women.
Then, they encoded these fantasies into rules with their holy books.
These encoded rules became expectations.
These fantasies were nourished by their expectations and further elaborated them.
This cycle continues today.
When a woman acts otherwise, she’s considered disobedient, rebellious, a Jezebel, a bitch.
Sarah, in this cartoon, is taking steps to break out of this pattern.
No one is happy about it.
There are lots of “Sarah’s” in our online community, The Lasting Supper. Join us! Others are.
