I was reading through the book of 1 Kings in the Old Testament (cue the scary music) and was quite taken at the striking resemblances between modern-day feminists and the prophets of Baal (an umbrella term to describe a collection of pagan gods in the ancient Near East). In my mind at least, these crossovers are just one more indicator that feminism has gone off course and has morphed into a cult-like movement.
(The passage I refer to is 1 Kings 18:25-30. You might want to read it first just for the lols)
Firstly, they both appear in mobs.
In verse 22 of the same chapter, we hear that there are 450 prophets of Baal and no reference is made to any individuals as they all seem to act entirely as a collective. Likewise modern feminists seem to enjoy the comfort that only a crowd provides showing up in large numbers to protest the latest…whatever.
Secondly, they both love their relentless chanting.
“From morning until noon” is long time to be chanting “O Baal, answer us!” and this is what people seem to resort to when critical thinking is far from critical to being a part of the overall movement. Wherever you go, feminists all over the world have this in common.
Thirdly, they both kill their kids.
Although this isn’t in the 1 Kings passages, Jeremiah 19:5 mentions child sacrifices that were practiced by worshipers of Baal. Although admittedly abortion is a little different, you could easily make the case that feminists sacrifice their children on the altar of choice and convenience.
Fourthly, they both get trolled by outsiders.
In verse 27 Elijah starts to troll them over the apparent impotence of Baal:
‘“Shout louder” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and myst be awakened.” So they (the prophets of Baal) shouted louder.’
Likewise feminists everywhere get trolled, and like the prophets of Baal, they also don’t seem to grasp how ridiculous they look.
Fifthly, they both do things most people would consider incredibly outlandish.
In the very next verse, we see the prophets cutting themselves. The reasoning behind this activity is baffling. Is it a form of virtue-signalling? Is it a desperate grab for attention? Who knows. Likewise feminists have more than their fair share of quirks including dying their hair blue, wearing high amounts of facial jewellery, writing crude words on their bodies and being ‘triggered’ at virtually everything.
