A sexist society afterall

For no real reason (what so ever) I got thinking about God and the Devil. I think it was a combination of andy's and Foilwoman's ongoing dialogue and A*'s new template.

Here is something to think about....

There is often dispute over the gender of God. Is God a "He" or a "She".

There is never a dispute over the gender of the Devil. The Devil is always a "he" and no one debates the point...

hmmmmm..... maybe we are a sexist society afterall.

You can now resume your regularly scheduled important thoughts.

I'm first! Actually, women are often used as representations of sin and temptation (i.e., Eve and the Apple) and the Devil being "male" was a construct of a "masculine" god. No-one was going to believe that a female could open a can of whup-ass on him. But temptation if often female (and women's fault, because men, they just can't resist, where as we women, it's our duty to do so).

FW is right...as always!! Elizabeth Hurley played the devil in the 2000 remake of "Bedazzled". You male-types LIKE us to be little devils, so naturally you don't see the female representations in quite the same light.

and let me just add that if the devil was a she, i would love to meet her and drink a beer with her. only for a few minutes cause heat kinda bothers me...

Yeah, interesting thought, but I think you've been vetoed.

I'm fully on the bandwagon with FW's comment!

Lucifer has boy parts. Or so they tell us.

according to some, several representations of the devil/devils in the bible are actually masculinized female deities and they were not only robbed of their godhood (or goddesshood, rather) but also their gender.

this is, of course, a contentious view but interesting food for thought.

i am kinda torn on my opinion... so i will just sit on this nice comfy fence!

aloha, ff

I think that both God and Satan are abstracts and hold no real gender. The Bible was written by people and interpreted multiple times, thus some of the information could be wrong. I believe, but with a healthy dose of realism.

If I recall from a book I once read, the original hebrew has god as gender neutral, his son as male, and the holy spirit as female, thereby balancing it all out nicely.

I knew it wasn't vegasgustan, because I looked at his site, and everything was all Audra or Amanda (try other letters of the alphabet, maybe?). I knew I was chatting with Andy (what a mensch), but didn't see how the VG came from Andy. It's a mystery, but then, I was using logic. ;)

At 10:35 PM, Blogger hofzinser said...

It is tough to see at first, koyima.

V is the 22nd letter in the alphabet. G is the 7th letter.

If you divide 22 by 7 you get 3 and some change. Now subtract the number of letters (VG - two letters)...


You get 1. A is the 1st letter in the aphabet. Thus VG=A for Andy.

Oh, boys and their cute little decrypter rings and things.

At 10:07 AM, Blogger deanne said...

I'm so confused.

At 3:10 PM, Blogger VegasGustan said...

Okay, if Andy is VG then what the hell am I?

At 3:46 PM, Blogger Foilwoman said...

Yeah, and why did my penultimate comment come in under that other name? That was me. "I knew it wasn't vegasgustan . . ."

I am guessing then that you never had the pleasure of watching the internet cartoon of the God and Devil show? It is a shame. I wonder if they have it one DVD somewhere? Anyway, the devil was a women. It was a wonderful show.

Do you remember what it was called?
