Women march in the street
protesting theocracy
maybe Gods are the problem

  2. I feel it’s more a problem of humans who think they are gods and have the right to judge who lives and who dies. And isn’t it us who have legitimized their power?

  3. We’ve legitimized the oppression of women rights here in the good old USA as well. Women are fighting here too. The situation may be more extreme in some other places, but it is also getting extreme here. And beyond the oppression of women there are killings of children all over the world happening as well. I would call this behavior Godless. Even if God is used as the justification, religion has been interpreted all over the world as man’s right to dominated everything that threatens their power. Including nature.
