It's hard to explain to someone that God is not sexist when they look at these scriptures [where a woman is unclean twice as long for birthing a girl as a boy]
a certain way without further study on it that gives God the benefit of the doubt. Eve was decieved,and there was a price to pay for that. It appears that God was a sexist,but he is not. Womens punishment had alot to do with her reproduction and childbearing. Women are able to have both girls and boys,and males are not better than females,a male child is a sign of her husbands strength. A first born son is the first sign of a mans strength. there is much more information about this,but there are good reasons for these things.
