#Evangelical Women demonize female victims over male perps because they have been trained to view women, unable to, or , punished for consent as the "Bad Girls". When Vashti is demonized for saying no, and Bathsheba is a temptress for being unable to say no. #EmptyThePews [1]
Vashti said no to protect herself. Xerxes wanted to treat her like a piece of meat. She said no. Therefore, according to Christians, she was disobedient. For refusing to be demeaned into an object. #EmptyThePews [2]
Bathsheba would have been terrified to say no to David. Saying no to someone in authority could have resulted in her death. But instead of seeing her as someone a lust-driven king took advantage of, Christians are trained to see her as a vile temptress. #EmptyThePews [3]
#Evangelicals automatically assume that Mary Magdelene was the prostitute because it allows them to continue to view women as the problem. #Evangelicals do not believe women because they are literally instructed that women are the reason for the fall. Women are vile. [4]
Over and over again in #Evangelical culture, we are told men are not at fault. Women are often blamed when abused in marriage. They are often told it's because they're not meeting their husbands sexual needs. [5]
In #PurityCulture, women are responsible for not causing another man to lust, rather than teaching the man that a woman is not an object to treat as a sexual toy. [6]
So when #Evangelicals, including #Evangelical Women come to the defense of rapists and immediately blame victims, immediately discredit anyone who waited to report, or refuse to believe simply because someone is Republican or Christian, we should not be surprised. [7]
They're not interested in protecting anyone, just in giving those with power who represent them more power. That is why #EmptyThePews. #Exvangelicals are acutely aware of most of this. It's one of many pieces behind why we speak out. [8]
