Feminists are not feminine. They don’t like being who they were made to be, and instead, try to be something different. So, why are they called “feminists”? A better term might be “masculinists.”
If men are not better than women, why are feminists trying so hard to be like them?
If we women really valued ourselves, we would stop trying to be like men, and instead develop our God-given femininity to its fullest. We would love being ourselves, being women. If we try to be like men, then we admit that we think they’re superior to us.
It’s interesting to note that the Feminist Movement has violated the Natural Law in a big way: Instead of promoting true femininity over mannishness, it has unintentionally conceded the superiority of men by denying women their femininity and trying to make us wish we were all men.
(Quoted from the book Dressing with Dignity, by Colleen Hammond, page 82, emphasis added)
But if we go by what the Bible teaches, we know that men are not better than women, and neither are women better than men–just different. By allowing ourselves to be different, we glorify God and His design. Furthermore, we show that we have what the world values so much: self esteem.
“For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man is not from woman, but woman from man. Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord. For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God.” 1 Corinthians 11:7-12
Woman is the glory of man.
Woman is from man.
Woman was created for the man.
Neither is man independent of woman, since man also comes through woman.
Yay for mothers!
The very thing that feminists try so much to avoid (being a mother at home), is the very thing that makes men need us so much! What would the world be without mothers who stay at home to care for their babies and children? What would the world be without women willing to have babies? I guess civilization would 1) slowly die out, and 2) break down, since the family is the basic unit of society.
Think about it: men need women to have their children, and to care for those children at home, and women need men to work hard to provide for them and the children. Nobody is “superior” or “inferior,” but everyone is doing the best they can, within their God-given roles, to help and support each other. And no, the roles are not reversible.
Men cannot carry babies, since they don’t have wombs. The biggest clue that God has given regarding what He considers the woman’s proper role, is that He has given her a womb. What are wombs for, but to grow babies within them? And similarly, breasts aren’t primarily for men to look at, but are obviously for nursing babies. Who better to stay at home and care for those babies than the woman? It just makes sense.
So, no, I don’t agree with men staying at home full time to care for the children. Even though it might work out in some respects, it’s not God’s way, and will eventually prove itself to be the lower road, in the end.
I can’t help but think of a man as being (dare I say it) a wimp when I see him staying home all day to care for the children, instead of his wife. Not that I think a woman is a wimp if she stays at home, since that is what God designed for her, but rather that the man is if he shirks his duty to provide for his family and leaves the hard labor to the weaker sex.
Yes, ladies: weaker. God calls us the weaker sex, not because we’re stupider, but because we really are weaker. When we try to be like men, we invite men to treat us unfairly. We give them permission to take advantage of us. How? It’s so opposite to what the feminists think they’re doing by demanding equal treatment: We allow men to expect things from us that we can’t really give. We can’t really do all the things that they do, as well as they can, and that’s not bad. Just different. Neither can they do all the things that we do, as well as we can. Sometimes, different is good. In this case, it truly is.
Let’s be happy to be what God made us to be; let’s be happy to be women!
