"Esotericism (hidden/guarded truth) is an establishment to perpetuate hierarchy which is the protection of elites in a society."
"...and whenever you hear of initiation processes, there is typically something to hide from the masses. To be specific, there is something that men want to hide from wombmen."
This is not true of and does not apply to indigenous spiritual sciences.
Essoteric knowledge and initiation do not serve the purpose of gender hierarchy. Essoteric knowledge and initiation is largely stratified by age groupings, and destiny/ability.
One distinct difference is that symbolism isn't taught as literal, and monotheistic gender exclusive terms aren't used from jump.
