My employer thinks so. He doesn't beat me, he's sneakier than that. He just works me to death.<quoted text>
Are you the property of your employer? In the Bible, a slave is a piece of property to the owner, who can beat them unto death if they so choose. In a like fashion, women are the property of men, and women are to be quiet and submissive to them, and not take any leadership roles, nor teach Christian ideology, but rather must defer to their husbands or male relatives.
Despite the feminist movement, we are still dividing life up into "boy" things and "girl" things. In our culture male sexism is wedded to power. Oppression is the act of subjugating through the unjust use of force or authority. How do you oppress a group of people who have been conditioned to view themselves as "masters" and who act accordingly? Men are used to running the show and, for the most part, don't reward "female" style anything. With their feet in the twenty first century and their minds in the fourth, they still perceive "female" as weak.
Female beauty is a image created by men. This concocted image of is everything no living woman can ever be: a twelve year old with twenty-five year old breasts, the one who never sweats, never wrinkles, is always ready to be displayed and never gets tired of being judged. The Perma-Pressed female, ever ready to please, always smiling, never aging, always innocent and always AVAILABLE.
