Motherhood is not tied to female gender, and females are NOT goddesses

In many debates, one point often raised by feminists and orthodox/socialists/communists/PC's is, Ah, but women is a mother/Goddess, and NO mother can be evil. Further these perverts want us to believe that women are Goddesses.
This argument implies, that only a women can be a mother. In ancient Indian texts, lot of sanctity is attached to the term Mother. While going through the ancient Indian texts, it is pretty clear, that the term mother is not at all attached to the physical female gender. Relating Prakriti to physical female gender, is plain stupid and nonsense. It exposes a very shallow understanding of these ancient text.

Females are not goddesses, and females were never worshiped in ancient India. In Devi Bhagwat, the Devi (Goddess) herself says that she is not a female, and considering her as a female is stupidity. The Goddess further says that she is beyond all these physical classifications.

In Maharashtra(India), there were many great saints like Dnyaneshwar, Tukaram, who called Lord Vitthala, as their mother. This even though Lord Vitthala has a wife (Rukmini). But these saints call Vitthala as their mother and not Rukmini.
The definition of Mother as given in these texts is someone who cares for, who is the creator, and not the one whose gender is female.
Devotees of  these saints term these saints as their mother. Hence Dnyaneshwar is referred to as "Maauli" in marathi, which means a very affectionate mother. This is because Dnyaneshwar cared for people, and he created Dnyaneshwari for the masses. There are plenty of references in spiritual text,where the traditional male God is referred to as Mother.

Hence please stop glorifying female simply because they can give birth. In the future this dependence on females is going to be anyways eliminated.
