>>303155>Additionally, I'm actually a bit confused as to where it might say explicitly in the Bible where it says "thou shalt not wear clothes originally made for the opposite sex,"
The first time it says that is in Exodus, then it repeated itself again and ups the punishment a few books later.>If a bit more erotic than your average clothing, but men's fashion had largely been lacking that Victorian aspect for quite some time.
If you've been doing NOTHING
but watching Pedowood shlock, that's exactly what you see. In reality, people are a lot more secure and confident about what it is that they do. Hell, it's been no secret that fucking American football players
regularly take ballet lessons. The PROBLEM
is that the people making decisions about what media gets developed are solely focused on strip societies of any semblance of culture or identity, and replacing it with their (((approved ideology))).>The rise of a sort of social psychiatry is also to blame, with everyone turning to therapy and pharmacological drugs to fix the problems created by wanton corporatism in the first place, and the claiming of everything as some sort of mental disease that can be cured with pillpushing, and you get a lot of kids and adults that have massive family and social issues turning to therapists at their university far from home and elsewhere that, upon hearing they crossdress to relieve stress occasionally, are quick to offer them a doctor that can prescribe them hormones.
Part of the problem was ACTUALLY
. Thanks to the Enlightenment thinking of the past several centuries, first-world citizens having been suffering from mental breakdowns in absolutely staggering numbers. In fact, for the first half of the 20th century, 50% of hospital beds were occupied by people who suffered from ZERO health problems
. It was all in the mind, but people didn't want that to be the answer. If all of their problems was entirely superficial and internal, then they have to be the one responsible for their actions. This is where Big Pharma comes in.
People were demanding that doctors provide them with a simple pill that could fix all their problems because they didn't actually give a shit about solving all their problems. Most of the cases were solved with placebos, but people were not accepting it. So, pharmaceutical companies started legally creating drugs to "help" these people, and the doctors prescribed the drugs to get the patients out of their face. However, this has backfired since because now you have Holier-than-though doctors, who think everything can be solved with a pill, and want to do nothing but fuel their god complexes.>>303157>Women where bared from a whole list of activities that where considered male. Including roughousing, and though it most definately happened anyway, the principle behind it was the idea that chasteness and chastity was about being cool and waterlike, mercurial, and any activity that put a woman into heavy motion, aroused the senses, (like combat), would be considered basically sacrilege.>These societies would have balked at right wing tomboy squads as horroble loose and sinful women.
I'm calling bullshit because the Greeks literally had Olympic games just
for women, and much of Christianity is highly
influenced by the Greeks. >One anon on regular old /mlp/ brought to my attention that fact that the torah we used today as complete is actually much newer than the story of jesus.
The Torah is the five books of Moses, the first five books in the Old Testament. What you're probably thinking of is the Talmud, which is an expansion of the Mishnah, which is a complete rewrite of the Hebrew Bible (The Old Testament) in order to preserve pharisee laws and and philosophy, and condemns Christ to Hell for being heretic. And it was written after
the Christian New Testament. The "newest" book in the New Testament stated to have been written as late as 150 AD, meanwhile the Mishnah didn't exist until 217 AD. And, while the New Testament was "canonized" in 5th century AD, the Talmud was finalized a century later.>One of the big motivating reasons for this was the whole circumcision thing, which happens to be a fable that was not, afaik, witnessed in any document prior to jesus's story in date of writing. Keep in mind I could be wrong about any of these. details, but its fascinating food for thought to me, since that and several other reasons are the main issue I take with god and his claims of ultimate morality.
Circumcision was widely practiced in the for centuries prior to Christ. In fact, the Egyptians are the ones credited with starting the practice as it did have a place in the old world (Like with kosher/halal butchering practices) due to the lack of hygienic and sanitation options.>>303158>Do you happen to know which book they're referring to? I thought it was one of the ones Paul wrote, to Corinthians, or Ephesians... having trouble pinpointing it. But it's good to know.
What you're talking about is in Romans, and it's a completely different context than the "Don't crossdress
" law that Moses established. In fact, just to point out it's a different context, the Israelites (During their 40 years of wondering) actually developed a tradition where virgin teen girls would run off to the nearby mountains and have a hot night of lesbian sex. Until the book of Romans (Written over two millennia later), there was no condemnation towards women committing homosexuality, only men, so the Israelites (Being the Proto-Kikes they were more often than not) considered that loop-hole to be A-okay. In Romans, however, Paul spends his time pointing out that the corruption hos gotten out of control in the Roman empire, and actually takes the time to condemn lesbian homosexuality, equating it to the sin of male homosexuality.
