    Reality check: somewhere between 75% and 90% of those executed for witchcraft were women.

    Persecution for witchcraft was a deeply misogynistic and patriarchal enterprise.

    And you found yourself overhelmed by those ? Poor puppy.

    This is because God act like the Eagle, flying around, sensing what is, and finaly plunge to his particular prey.

    You have to show that the reason those women were persecuted because they were women, and not perceived as witches.
    I dropped links where in some parts of the world men’s persecution of witchcraft outnumbered the women’s. Why was that if it was misogynistic?

    A pointless exercise, since you have confirmed that you do not take on board any information I present to you. Indeed, you typically just ignore it all.

    If you're interested, the history of "witchcraft" and the various persecutions for it, are very well documented and studied by historians. Accusing a woman of being a witch was (and still is, in some places) a very convenient method for ridding oneself of a woman one dislikes, especially in an environment of kangaroo courts, show trials and prosecutors who stand to gain personally by "rooting out" supposed witchcraft.

    Do you believe in witches, Jan? Does your religion teach you that women are witches?

    What did you discover in your extensive research on the topic? You appear to have missed virtually all of the scholarly studies and books that have given us insight into the history of witchcraft, the particular motivations of the accusers and of the prosecuting authorities etc.

    Moderator note: Jan Ardena has been warned again for trolling and knowingly telling lies. He has not modified his behaviour following previous warnings for the same things.

    Specifically, Jan continues to engage in a number of the typical behaviours of trolls that are listed in dot-point form in our Posting Guidelines. Moreover, Jan has chosen to repeat his demands that other members explain why they believe he is sexist and/or misogynistic, when extensive explanations have already been provided in numerous posts, often with specific references to, or reproduction of, statements posted by Jan himself.

    Due to accumulated warning points, Jan is now banned from sciforums for a period of 2 weeks (14 days).

    No, I really don't have to. You can ignore them, of course.

    Anyone like to start a book when Jan returns first post will be along the lines

    I'm not sexist and/or misogynist. Show me where you get that idea

    That's nice.

    Unfortunately I wasn't joking.

    Right..

    You post as if you own a woman.

    Maybe your jokes aren't funny.

    I would hope that is not the only reason you married her.

    That's just too easy!

    Your make-believe is nothing new. If the point of these straw men is just to have something to flame, neither is that innovative, or useful, or whatever.

    Try it this way: Do you acknowledge and affirm that women are human beings and have human rights? It's a straightforward question, and I encourage you to answer it forthrightly; there is utility in doing so, and being able to answer correctly.

    The problem with tellng a woman what she thinks is both general and particular. Generally, you run a high probability of being wrong. In particular, you're giving over to misogynists in order to complain about women, and, really, that just isn't new.

    (Hint: Parsing out "women's rights" in order to advocate particularly for men's rights is most assuredly nothing new.)

    You took it wrong as it was expected.

    I don't complaint about women, my complaint is the system giving preferences instead of equal treatment.

    What are these preferences that women are receiving over men, as part of the ''system?''

    Women and children get on the lifeboats first.

    There is pretty much already Universal Healthcare for women and children. Just women, not so much however.

    Being a pretty woman seems to be more advantageous than a pretty man. Pluto has it rough. Women won't leave Jan alone for some reason.

    And who made that determination?

    And then ask yourself why they (and you) chose to make that determination and in a way, comparison.

    There is?

    Where?

    Hmmm..

    In what way?

    Being an incel does that..

    If only he'd leave us alone..

    You should have at least tried to answer the question. That you're not capable of doing so tells us what we need to know. And, no, it's not really surprising.
