"If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also"

Matt 5:39

This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.

THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.

So Jesus is advocating a nonviolent psychological warfare tactic exploiting social norms re: dominance & perceived superiority.

I like Jesus an awful lot.

This is perfect.

YES

This is also.. really perfect because in one case they’re like “No, we have no obligation to these kids, we know they’ll be killed if they go back but that’s not our problem. They don’t belong here. We don’t care what happens to them”. But then they’ll turn around and insist that a pregnant person has to sacrifice their personal well-being and BODY to carry a pregnancy to term despite the fact that it’s unwanted. They think nations should have more autonomy and rights than human beings and that’s terrifying.

"Men who are progressive, profeminist, or allies to women — we have to constantly check ourselves. We have to be open and listen to women and sometimes respond by taking a backseat and not encroaching on female space in ways that are kind of natural to us. It’s so integrated into who we are as men: to take center stage, to lead, to be out front, to not really understand the power dynamic that’s at play. I think it’s really important for all of us men who are progressive and who are working to eradicate sexism and all the other social ills out there to be a lot more cognizant of our presence in these circles and spaces."
