Raise worthy men, culture advisor tells women

Mother And Son

Women should focus on raising worthy men, instead of trying to be like men themselves, a male member of the newly formed advisory committee for culture wrote on social media late on Thursday.

Throughout human history, wrote Antis Roditis, women had the primary responsibility of raising their sons.

The salvation of the human species requires a woman “to take on the role of educator of her sons more intensely” to “raise men of prestige”, the writer and director added.

Roditis’ comments followed criticism by the public and certain politicians, female and male, of the education ministry for only including one woman in the advisory committee for the creation of a deputy ministry of culture. Following the national uproar, the ministry announced nine additional female members on Thursday, two days after the initial announcement.

Roditis said that women should not be “seduced by the male model”.

According to Roditis, women must not seek to have the same rights as men because the latter have created a world full of hypocrisy and deception.

“We are moving at full speed towards self-destruction, believing that our [men’s] ‘logic’ will prevail in the end,” he said.

He said females were on the margins of this tragic human history of “civilisation”, because by “giving birth with pain, they kept the bond of love stronger than that of men”.

Roditis also attacked women for failing to do a good job of raising their sons. “They produced and still produce bloodthirsty and warmongering men,” he claimed.

The writer and director is a member of the now 25 -member advisory committee that consists of 15 men and 10 women. The committee was formed to advise the ministry on the creation of a deputy ministry of culture.
