Are men and women equal?

28 02 2007

.

This is perhaps one of the defining questions of the modern world.

Irrespective of the country and culture one lives in, it is next to impossible to negotiate life today without running into this question lurking behind office desks, popping out of the messy bed sheets, and mixing with the food on our plate. How we ask and answer this question marks our politics, paints our ideology, highlights our socio-cultural context as well as gives hints about how we live our private lives.

So I might as well ask and answer this question, even though I can hear Alexander Pope whispering in my ear: “For fools rush in where angels fear to tread”!

Before we begin answering, it may be worthwhile to revisit the history of this question.

When the slogan of gender equality was first voiced, tentatively at that, in the nineteenth century, what was being demanded was an equality of political rights. Let us go back and remember the conditions in Europe and North America at that time. As a famous feminist writer has said, “A woman underwent ‘civil death’ upon marriage, forfeiting what amounted to every human right, as felons now do upon entering prison. She lacked control over her earnings, was not permitted to choose her domicile, could not manage property legally her own, sign papers or bear witness. Her husband owned both her person and her services.” Women were, in effect, legal minors — their fathers and husbands having rights over their wealth, labour and sexuality. And, of course, women did not have the right to vote.

It was also the time when the founding principles of the modern world — Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, unfurled with such fanfare by the French Revolution, were slowly, tortuously, being transferred from the pages of books to the streets and legal statutes. It was in this larger historical context that women organised themselves to demand legal and political rights, along with workers, ethnic minorities and colonised people.

Once the assertion that ‘all men are equal’ was accepted, it was easy to extend this premise to all humans, irrespective of sex, class, race, ethnicity, religious persuasion, etc. The main struggle was whether equality or hierarchy would be the founding principle of society. Once the battle for the equality of all men was won, it was relatively easy to extend this principle to sub-sets of the human race.

Yet it took almost a century for women to gain legal and political equality in its entirety. It was only in the 1960s and later that legal and political infirmities which women suffered were fully removed in Western Europe and North America.

It is a measure of the distance we have to cover that women, in many of our societies, still do not have basic political rights; legal parity is still further away. Even countries like Pakistan, which have had a woman prime minister, are still struggling with laws that consider a woman less than a man. We also know how relatively easy it is for these political and legal rights of women, whatever they are, to be taken away with a mere change of government. In fact, many of our societies have seen a regression as far as laws and political rights of women are concerned.

The reason why, unlike in the West, women’s rights are so easy to take away is because one, they are not real ‘rights’, but more like privileges, and two, because the idea of equality is yet to be crowned with the universality it enjoys in the West. This is because a right is a claim made on society, guaranteed by the state. Unless this claim can be made by all and guaranteed for all, those who articulate that claim will remain privileged with reference to those who cannot.

The idea of equality, as a general organising principle of society, has still not been won in our societies. Our societies remain deeply hierarchical and stratified along primordial identities. It is not possible for women to gain political and legal equality with men unless it becomes a general principle. A sub-set (men-women equality) cannot exist when the universe (equality of all humans) is absent. In a context where that is lacking, whatever ‘rights’ women or other oppressed groups manage to wrangle, would remain ‘privileges’ rather than true rights.

But the achievement of legal and political equality in the post-World War II West brought about the realisation that women still lagged behind men in substantive matters. While they did manage to gain political rights to vote and stand for public office, it was very difficult for women to actually get elected. The US still has not been able to elect a single woman (or non-white) to its presidency. Similar glass ceilings — an effective barrier, which remains invisible in law, to growth — were found operating in business, professions and other public domains where women continue to be under-represented and underpaid.

It was in this context that the demand for substantive equality emerged. The political agenda of the women’s movement moved from demanding mere legal equality to equality of opportunities, such that it reflected in outcomes.

What are the lessons we — the people living in Asia, living in Muslim societies, living in post-colonial societies — can learn from this history of the women’s movement in the West?

The question, “Are men and women equal?” will provide different answers in the West and in Asia. Since the question is premised on the fact of existing political equality and legal parity in the West, it purports to ask whether men and women are the same in their emotional, psychological and cultural attributes. Whatever way that question is then answered, it rarely takes away from the political equality of women and men.

But when this same question is posed in our societies, it jostles for space with questions like: “Are people of all castes equal?”, or “Are people of all religions equal?” And we well know that these are hardly settled questions in our societies. As was argued earlier, in a context where the general equality of human beings is still not an accepted fact, demands for equality of parts would always tend to dissolve into a fight for privilege.

Given this context, it seems that the demand for women’s equality in our societies is, perforce, to be part of a larger political programme which demands general equality for the entire population. “Are men and women equal?”, in that sense, would be a wrong question to ask in today’s Asia. They can never be unless the hierarchical foundation of our social structure is destroyed and the idea of the inherent equality of human beings, qua human beings, is enthroned in our cultures.

The article ponders and pontificates about the equality of women but the author doesnt commit to the stance that despite politics and social structure enforcing inequality, men, women, children, aged, sexual minorities are inherently EQUAL.

Its how we live these polarities is what makes the question still alive in todays context.

I would also have been happier if we didnt bring in the classical North South divide to place the context…Equality is a concern, regardless of where we live!

No, men and women are not equal. Women are greater than men so how can it be? But its the men, the smaller of the two, who have held the greater captive. Its strange that the very gender that gives birth to men, including great men in our history, has been denied equality and basic rights for centuries. And while their rights are only quite new, they are expected to come out of ages of oppression in an instant.

the usual equality-fetish blabbering. men and women are equal before the law, unequal before the scale of capability. that’s the reason why the dominant sex has ruled over the weaker from time immemorial.

we’d be much served if we were to hold to equality under law rather than trying to clone women as men and vice versa.

This question remains unanswered yet,and I don’t think there can be a clearcut answer to this at all,at least in the present times.Now as an “A” cannot be the same as a “B”,but still both are indispensable and hold their own importance in the English alphabet ,similarly men and women can’t be equal,and they have their specific importance in the human society.
The greater physical power of men as if an error of destiny renders them dominant and their say prevails most of the time.and it is this superficial vanity of the masculine power is venerated wolrdover.
A look at the mother nature reveals the creator’s idea ,that it never wanted a discrimination based gender,but the growing insanity of the human society ,and its affair with power, lust and domination is to be condemned.

I truly believe that men and women are not equal. The women is better in many ways. Even thought before many people thought that the men more intelligent, strong, and brave, the true is that the women have show the reality. Today women are obtaining more deegres in the colleges and are caplabe to support the family much more so than the men.

I think you are dodging the issue, it is not a question of superiority but of equality, the opposite. Gender equality doesn’t mean that the right to. be respected as a woman (or man) is taken away or less important. Equality is the acceptance of our differences, not only physical but mental and physcological too and the acceptance that they are both powerful, strong, an understanding that both have defaults. BOTH. Women are not trying to be masculine or men feminine, the only thing stopping us from peace is human arrogance and ignorance. Our obsession with power and dominance is holding us back as an international society. Just some thoughts.

Are Apples equal to oranges? Mathematically speaking, equality depends on what we compare them based upon. Is it their taste, shape, colour, chemical composition, per capita mass, cost in the market that we use for the purpose?
But nonetheless do not forget that both are fruits, equally good for health and equally essential for the eater.
This is essentially a similar problem that we are talking about.
I think it is not fair to compare men and women and talk about equality.- No, we do not compare their stamina, muscle power, average height etc.
Is there any reason at all to embark on this discussion of equality at all? If you want to have this as a pre-requisite to opening up giving equal rights, let me point out, what is the whole point of any discrimination at all ? (based on gender or otherwise).
If somebody is doing good work, whichever gender they may belong to, they should be given the opportunity to do it. Ultimately we want good work from people, in whatever aspects they can contribute and it therefore is absolutely essential that we give them level playing field for doing that.
How do we expect men to be equal to women?
We selectively kill the female fetus. We educate the male child and not the girl. We also have stereotypic notions of the career options conventionally allowed for females. And we also have helluva lot of societal norms against them, enforced with perfect vigor by old patriarchs.
If you do not water two trees equally right from birth or childhood, how will they be equal?

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I
feel I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex
and extremely wide for me. I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to
get the grasp of it!

My comment begins from the above post
“Now as an “A” cannot be the same as a “B”,
but still both are indispensable
and hold their own importance in the English alphabet,
similarly men and women can’t be equal,
and they have their specific importance in the human society.”
This is a start off point to be reality back into the debate and actual search for Truth. For there is truth on this point. Men and women biologically are not equal. The affectations, desires and goals are different yet complimentary.
And whether one resists or rejects Faith– that position or lack of belief does not change the Fact of the existence of God and that we are the Children of perfect parents.
But this great debate, and the issues of government that arise — most often confuse words and their meanings with the sometimes bizarre false notions of philosophy and subversive schemes sent forth by the unwholesome that exist in societies.
Our society here in the United States was founded on a belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob of the Old Testament Holy Bible — declared & witnessed as Jesus Christ of the New Testament.
Why is that significant? Because the Judeo-Christian ethics. That is what God inspired the founders to place into our Constitution. You have to know that men are children of Adam given charge (more precisely dominion) to lead, protect and bless the family. That was passed down to men- his descendants. (now they could be good men or monsters– that is their choice free will or Agency– so don’t reject my words just because there are monsters in the past and today– this is the pattern and ideal) Women were created as the help meet for Adam and his son’s as their wives.

God loves both men and women– we should too. (no problem there right!??!)
But unless you, the reader- expect men and women to compete, be rivals, and that leading to enemies, bickering, fighting and killing each other– they were not placed to do the same thing in life. THEY ARE NOT EQUAL.
But then everyone either by misunderstanding, anger over lies in the world or plain obstinacy cease to read or raise their arm in challenge. That is not the end – For the Reality is that men and women are INDISPENSABLE.
Man cannot exist without a good woman
(i.e., loving kind, not a shrew, nag or hag)
and Women cannot exist without their prince
(protecting loving providing nourishing prince to them as a princess) These truths have really been twisted and corrupted over the ages.
The woman suffrage movement to gain the women the vote —
was both misguided and grossly wrong!
Again, hold your horses- and do not take offense!

Do all of you actually know what the Constitution provided for — respecting who should vote. It was an adult man (not a kid, potentially yet ignorant and selfish with no job or responsibility) He really needed to be a land owner (you know someone that had a stake in the laws passed regarding property)
Now knowing the reality that families only exist if there is a husband wife and children. How in the world would the nation survive if every time a husband voted his wife would vote and become a potential challenge or negation of His Vote????

Please realize, God and human nature demand a mesh and intertwining of men and women into a wonderful, powerful, and effective partnership of strengths and characteristics, skills and feelings of both. Woman having the Vote is just wrong. And if ever girl would find a sweetheart. And the men loved them as themselves (which is the Command from Christ)– can you not open your minds and hearts and admit the joy and beauty of those relationships.
(Please just because there are the men, or nasty, cruel or hate-filled in the world that don’t make those unions / relationships– does not mean that we all don’t have that potential.) Each of us have to be brave enough to face Truth–
Men are not Women, we are not equal, we are vital, and indispensable to each other. As soon as we divide, begin to compete or vie for power or position– ugliness and serious problems ensue.

As to the workplace we must face the other great blessing of our Constitution and its foundation the Gospel of Jesus Christ– and what is that?
The answer is Justice and Equity. Not the false notion of fairness, which frankly is the false notion created to serve the selfish or crafty. Real Justice requires an appropriate reward for an action. Equity before the law is about Justice not about equal results for uniquely disparate entities. The dangerous and destructive societies that are Socialists– in part build themselves up like that in France in its revolution seeking “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité ou Morte”
That insanity for that kind of “equality” of France & around the world)
works for making the rich poor to try and raise the poor–
and only creates slavery of dictatorships.

Sorry, but our Republic is about real liberty and rich & poor judged with equity by the very same laws. And this very much deals with the Equality of the sexes.
Socialism is about creating the caste system,
dividing and labeling groups–
to divide in order to Conquer!!
And THIS IS The Plan behind making men and women fight to be equal
and destroy the family & society.
Remember the idea and ideal
“Not equal– vital & complimentary”
and justice of the same laws applied to both.
If you rush for equality of socialism there will be no family–
just two groups at odds; & despising each other!

I know I am speaking of returns to a higher ideal–
But that is where Truth was born and where it will shine.
Women make great mothers– they shine there, with effort, support & God’s help. Men were both cursed and commanded to work– please let them!

There is plenty to do in the world, for families, for precious children– than for women to seek to usurp power, pretend to be men, and lose the glory, beauty and destiny God intends for them to seek to overthrow men, the society set by God for this earth. I would encourage each to research, open up and strive for the ideal– and lay aside the false notions, strivings in animosity generated
by the incessant rivalry of one sex against the other.
IT NEEDS TO BE:
Hand in hand together–
not with the raised fist or sharp tongues of animosity.
Please, husbands and wives; lovers and friends–
not as combatants leading to utter annihilation.
There is a better way– Men and Women, not equal, but indefensible-
together “for each other” — perfect compliments!

yours truly

sorry, i spelled the word “indispensable” wrong. in my last sentence
I hope you can overlook my typing errors and see what i am trying to say.

and a corrected sentence–
“There is plenty to do in the world, for families, for precious children–
than for women to seek to usurp power, pretend to be men,
and lose the glory, beauty and destiny God intends for them to (have).

(omitted beginning – I thought but failed to type)
Rather than for them to
seek to overthrow men,
the society set by God for this earth. ”

Again sorry for my inadequate proofing.

Well Mr. Fscottky, what if the complementary role that you suggest for women is not liked by a particular women? Women make great mothers, but does that mean that you will force every women to be a mother and leave her no choice? Your argument seems naturally biased against socialism and revels heavily in your notion of “destiny”

IN RESPONSE — There is nothing about the Offer of The Gospel — The Doctrines of Christ — or about The Plan of Salvation — that “requires” or “forces” any person man or woman to comply / obey.
We were given our ‘Free Agency’ to choose to follow and obey God the Father and Jesus Christ.
I believe your comment encapsulates the misconception of the Entire Plan of God. God The Father is JUST. So is His only begotten in the flesh– His personal son Jesus Christ. And everyone that chooses faith and the Plan of Life and complies with (which means to obey and fulfill) the Commandments of God obtain the blessings which are inherent to those specific Commandments.

IF a woman chooses to reject Faith or Celestial Marriage or being kind or nice (consideration and regard for their fellow man) or ANYTHING that is part of The Plan of Salvation — Then that woman can freely reject that Plan and those commandments. BUT know this– that the blessings that are associated bonded welded and created by those sacred Spiritual Real Commandments — do not come to them. You want to feel satiated — you eat. You want to grow spiritually — you exercise faith unto completing a path / a plan/ i.e. a commandment. The Lord said it precisely when He Said
I, the Lord, am bound when ye do what I say;
but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise. (D&C 82:10)

(The ‘promise’ here is the blessing) Each commandment was created to bring forth a specific blessing — this truth was shared and even memorized in my youth at Mutual every week at Church [Read Doctrine and Covenants Section 130 verses 20 & 21
“There is a LAW, irrevocably decreed in Heaven
before The Foundations of this world,
upon which all blessings are predicated—
And when we obtain any blessing from God,
it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”

You choose to deny yourself of the glorious blessing of living in an eternal friendship and sisterhood with women seeking to be perfect– living in harmony with No Jealousy or rivalry or backbiting — Then you can choose to ignore or not use the faith and the effort to accept and be Offered Celestial Marriage by Father for you to Live– IT IS YOUR CHOICE
But you also need to know that you LIVE your Choices.

Some people yield their heart (desires) and spirit (spiritual being inside your body) to overeat; or be mean; or act cruel to others; or to steal; or be depraved in the arena of what I call ‘powers of life’ aka sexual thoughts & actions
Some people reject all things of true Faith (the real truth of God and the Eternities) giving themselves over to the fables pagan ideas or the “orthodox religion” promised by The Adversary to be promulgated over all the earth & throughout the ages as a corruption of “the philosophies of men mingled with scriptures” ((like a hook covered with a tiny piece of cheese — that only tricks / traps and leads to the death of the fish who bites))
YOU Can be like those so many many people and choose to follow after the natural man and natural woman– which is the feelings drives and attitudes that encapsulate the ‘mindset of Lucifer’ — given to all men and all women as descendants of Adam and Eve following their partaking of the fruit.
You can follow the base desires and be exactly what Lucifer wanted in the slaves — His Plan to save all men at the cost of their freedom and forever bar their Exaltation (meaning to become like Christ and have fullness of joy and an eternal family and children)
Recall when Jesus Christ revealed a bit from the Pre-Existence
when The Plan of Salvation was presented to all of us on this earth and all the other earths that Jesus Christ would create
“And I, the Lord God, spake unto Moses, saying:
That Satan,
whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten,
is the same which was from The Beginning,
and he came before me, saying— Behold, here am I, send me,
I will be thy son,
and I will redeem all mankind,
that one soul shall not be lost,
and surely I will do it; wherefore give me thine honor. [Moses 4:1]

He cared nothing for our eternal happiness (‘joy’).
He cared nothing about Evil or the victims created by its exercise
He cared nothing about our changing and improving and perfecting ourselves
He only Wanted The Power God THE FATHER had.
He only wanted to depose God and Rule the Universe
He had a secret– The Secret Heart — of “Domination”

He did not want the Dominion of Celestial Leadership lived by The Godhead
He did not want the Celestial leadership performed by ‘serving’ those lead
He did not want to follow The Order of Heaven that rejects All Domination
He, Lucifer, who is called during mortality as ‘Satan’– is the antithesis
of that which is Holy Pure Wholesome and Beautiful

You can elect, Because God The Father — rejected Satan — and kept Agency
SO YOU CAN ELECT to reject any and all aspects of Celestial Marriage
and the dynamic effort (of course requiring masterful effort of purity of purpose and a pure heart and clean hands) — to Live a Celestial Law.

Father loves you — and lets you choose Darkness
or you can choose Light
But, because He is First and Foremost JUST — you must live with that Choice

You choose NOT to live or accept or believe in and exercise faith
in that plan of relationship and marriage — and you Will Not have It

For in the Resurrection and the Day of Final Judgment
Christ will return unto each man and unto each woman
according to their desires and actions

These things are powerful and life changing and require FAITH and
a purity of purpose to be ONE with God and to Do His Will
and have faith that His Plan is PERFECT and does require our tweeking
adjustment or revisions. That takes faith and courage
You are free to reject this.
That is why The Lord said the following
D&C 101:5 “For all those (he / she) who will not endure chastening,
but deny Me,
cannot be sanctified.”
[emphasis & parenthetical added]
Please know this–
Every effort you make to follow the other half of the results of the fruit taken by Adam and Eve (for recall it was not just the cursed part of the fruit which gave us the ‘natural man’ or ‘natural woman’ desires mimicking the plan / mindset of Satan (as I have come to understand it to be– in the great Wisdom of God to winnow out those that ultimately want the Evil Lucifer envisioned and desired to bring upon the Universe!– NO the fruit had not just the corrupting influence in the spiritual realm of desires of evil and the corruption of body creating death in the once immortal bodies of Adam & Eve.
NO the fruit had another half– The GOOD SIDE (so to speak)
And that Was the “Light of Christ” for the spiritual effect of the good part of the fruit — and the power when fulfilled to restore our bodies
The Spiritual is Key– The Good Part of that Fruit was the “Light of Christ’

This is Key — because your Choices — your use of your ‘Agency’ to choose Good — allows you to grow and use faith and obtain more Truth and more glory / power / changes in our very nature to grow up to be the Children of Gods– The Divine nature of men and women is accessed when we CHOOSE to follow the Light of Christ that lets us know things that are Good and from God– by its resonance with all things that flow from Heaven

So you have to winnow out that which is from the ‘world’ which is corrupted by those who follow the natural man and the lies sent for and supported by Evil — when you can hold to that which is Pure and True and from God– it will help you hold onto God and those gifts of power of Heaven the ‘Light’.
And will help you bind those Pure and elements / pieces / gifts of “Truth”

Father does answer prayer. Jesus is alive and Resurrected. He has the power from His Atonement (suffering for each and every soul) to life us up
IF AND ONLY IF we ‘choose’ to use ‘faith unto Repentance’
to choose to use faith unto living a pattern and plan that is Perfect.

As to Marriage — the Perfect Plan is Celestial marriage.
When the Saints are cleansed from the Hypocrites and ‘dissemblers’
The pattern of Celestial marriage / plural marriage / or The Principle / or
The Law of Sarah — will again be presented to the Saints
and those who live worthy to that awesome pattern and plan
will have eternal blessings of Joy and never-ending relationships of Joy and eternal increase (children in the Eternities)
While those that ‘choose’ to reject this idea / ideal pattern / and This Law
will By the Justice of God — get their wish / desire — and NOT have it!
The Lord said– (D&C 132:15-17)
15 Therefore, if a man marry him a wife in the world,
and he marry her not by me nor by my word,
and he covenant with her so long as he is in the world and she with him,
their covenant and marriage are not of force when they are dead,
and when they are out of the world;
therefore, they are not bound by any law when they are out of the world.

16 Therefore, when they are out of the world they neither marry
nor are given in marriage; but are appointed angels in heaven,
which angels are ministering servants, to minister for those
who are worthy of a far more,
and an exceeding, and an eternal weight of glory.

17 For these angels did not abide my law;
therefore, they cannot be enlarged,
but remain separately and singly, without exaltation,
in their saved condition, to all eternity;
and from henceforth are not gods, but are angels of God forever and ever.

This is a great Plan– it is Just and True.
No one is forced to obey.
But there is a limit to the Godhead’s patience with men and women
When they are fully ripe in iniquity — Then they face dire consequences
(that’s because those who are ‘fully ripe in iniquity’ hurt and despoil the innocent and wreck havoc)
NEVER think that Father is an Author of confusion or of ugliness or selfishness. Celestial marriage is not a plan of debauchery or any diminishment of a woman or her rights / privileges / nature or potential.
Quite the opposite– it affords the only way bear one another’s burdens; to comfort those who are need of comfort– to truly be godlike in character.

Too few have sought to understand Celestial Marriage
And too many have cast aspersions upon created by the apostates and enemies of Light and Truth that are ‘offended’ by Christ and pure Truth.
So-called modern Christianity is neither of Christ nor modern
It is the same lies and perversions created by Lucifer from the days of Adam to mix tiny bits of Truth with cleaver, cunning and ugly LIES & “philosophies of men”.
Never forget — So many hate plural marriage — because it destroys their ‘craft’ to seek for whores — to make women their playthings and objects of lust.
Marrying women and ONLY having sexual intercourse with a woman who is married to that man– IS THE FALL of the Evil that so many want.
That is why so many hate it– disparage it — and spread lies about it

Such too is the case with the issue of Dominion versus Domination
The crux of your comment —
Freedom is the pattern of God– limited earthly government
which was the plan for our nation –
under The Constitution
& Declaration of Independence
Forcing everyone to do your will or kill them (send them to a Gulag/ camp)
is Communism or Statism or government
of a Tyrant or Dictator
Tricking people – the use of Guile to set up Domination over people
is Socialism
Creating never ending always proliferating
laws to control every aspect of life
is totally the plan and aim of Satan
The Government in every area of life
Controlling all choices — “for the children”
or “to be fair” or any lie that can deceive
At least with Communism or a Tyrant you know them — because if you cross them they Kill you
Socialism is Government by Deceit
Politics of Lies / Subterfuge
Socialism is just as much a poison as Communism IT JUST TAKES LONGER
to Kill you.
You must study, pray and seek by faith the Truth
IT is There about God as much as the Truth is there about government, finance, health or sex and Relationships

God raised up this nation and inspired the Constitution to be DIFFERENT
from the nations of the world– the nations of the world today are Socialists
Communists at their core are Socialist
The United Soviet Socialist Republic their name
Except the lie is — they are not united (certainly not the unity that is of God)
and they are not a Republic– for true communism never allow real voting

Please my dear reader and reader(s) know that Their is Truth
The real Truth of what has happened in the past — Truth of what is real in our present NOW- And Truth regarding what will happen in the Future

The nature of Celestial Marriage will not yield itself to those that spurn or live lives that are in opposition to Christ’s teachings.
I invite all to go with real intent and faith to God — with a willingness to have faith in Him and His Son Jesus Christ with a determined resolve to
try his works (live as They invite / and Command) and
you shall find the blessings each of those commandments create.
This is my testimony and my invitation to you.
Thus Each man will be equal to his potential
And Each woman will be equal to her potential
And The Divine or Heavenly goal is the Eternal Bond of Marriage
in the Presence and under the Glory of the Perfect Godhead
your brother
