If not is there scripure to back it up that wemon can,t become Priest?

In Timothy it says that "the woman may not teach them." But if you read closely it is definitely singular, not plural. Also Timothy was a letter from Paul to Timothy, who was teaching at the time, so its possible that there was a single person who Timothy was having trouble with. While some people claim that the Bible says women cannot teach men, the argument against that are the points I mentioned above.

I definitely think that verse has been taken out of context in order to discriminate against women in the church.

I agree. Though out of tradition and plain ol' stubbornness it's hard to change. It's changing slowly though.

Probably not ... because there haven't been wemon on planet Earth, so it's never been an issue.

Scripture backs that in the New Testament all Christian women (as well as all Christian men) are "priests".
Read 1 Peter 2:1-10 !

1Timothy 2:11-12 "Let a women learn in quietness in all submissiveness; but I do not permit a woman to teach nor to dictate to a man, but to be in quietness. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the women was befooled
into violation of the command." (The Bible in Living English)
