    When religion is use by another human as a weapon of mind control, like a pill that can be used for symptoms of many illnesses is a good thing, but  the pill can be damaging if overdosed, or misused.
    Also as an example we have the family arrangement of perants and children, no one says this is unhealthy ,most know this is the norm of life, but now when people include God in their family for a guide of good morals, and decency ,now people want to believe there is a mental  problem,  I would say look at the examples we already have of people who do as they please without a guide of morals, without a guide of how to treat your nieghbors, with out a guide of law as to what is right and wrong ,we see this everyday on the news. The world has gone mad.
    And now what do we have the results ,people scared to travel, people scared to be kind because of scams, people scared because of racism.
    The bible is not racist ,but people are. There is a difference in what is right then how people practice that right.

    I been seeing a lot these type of questions. It's really difficult to answer such a specific question on such a broad term. When people say "religion" , it would be helpful if you specified which one. Not all are the same. They don't teach the same things. Some have 1 god, some have many, some dont have any. The teachings are so different in so many areas from each religion, its really impossible to answer a specific question such as this.

    Most religions do tend to elevate the males to a superior level, and expect females to 'obey' them.The damage comes when the dogma of any religion openly states that females are 'inferior' in some way. It can totally devastate some women to think that they are not "good" enough, that they are "unclean" in some way.
    Religions tend to assume that women are subjugates, perhaps not fully "human".
    The fact that most religions assume that their "gods" are male is but one example of how men think regarding the females.

    To answer this, you need to be more specific about which religion you have in mind. Based on the picture I assume you're referring to Christianity, but even that has many different branches. Can you be more specific?

    The best solution, don't buy into it. Don't accept any belittlement. There is no authority. The conditioning runs so deep, through thousands of years, that most women don't even notice or question that they are accepting most Gods as "He". And who set that up? Look at your own being, love and celebrate that. In that way, you can easily see when someone tries to tilt a philosophy towards male domination. If you agree with male domination, including Gods, and the afterlife, something is terribly wrong. Nobody is better or higher than anybody. Question who is writing the rules.
