I Didn’t Come From Your Rib. You Came From My Vagina.
Once upon a time we imagined God as The Goddess.
Women give birth, and so from the goddess worlds were born.
But once we knew the role men played the goddess birthed a son who grew to become her lover and consort. And from these two worlds were born.
Later, gods overtook goddesses. And eventually, from God the world was born. (Why this pattern? I’ll discuss it later.)
And these patriarchal types have been trying to control women’s reproduction ever since.
But PsychoSuperMom is here to remind us that:
I didn’t come from your rib. You came from my vagina.
Good to remember when you hear that from Adam Eve was born — making women secondary.
