I commend your knowledge on this issue and writing ability. Thanks.
Rod: Your essay sounds like something that is taught in Misandry 101 courses at the local university.
Thanks brake12. If you've learned something C.J. that's great too. As for Misandry, forget it. I'm a bloke and I don't hate myself. I don't hate women either. Not sure what you have against women wearing bikinis on beaches. Very strange.
Rod: I do not recall having said anything about bikinis on beaches, but since you asked...here goes nothing. In my mind, bikinis are nothing more than sexy beach bras and panties. Women wear more clothing to bed each night than they do at the beach.
Okay! So you don't like women wearing bikinis. Thought so! You'd rather see them go to the beach wearing black tents with peep holes. Not good swim wear, they could drown in heavy clothes. Very strange.
I do not condone or endorse any community, religion or system that abuses or oppresses women or children. Everyone should be cherished, loved and cared for.
Right on living twenty first.
So Livingtwentyfirst you're not in favour of a culture where a girl going to school is likely to get shot. I agree. Yes, mothers are kept ignorant children grow up ignorant.
LTF: I cannot see proper justification for saying, "Cultures where men are dominant are very slow in achieving progress." I mean, this statement completely confounds and contradicts all known facts. Sounds like evil, not men, is the bane of existence
Look at the world you live in CJ. Where you have women being stoned to death because they were raped and therefore had sex out of marriage you will find poverty sporned by ignorance. Where everyone get a fair go great strides are made.
Keep watching, Ron. You may see the United States go down in flames for allowing women to do as they please. 80% of divorces in America are filed by women, mothers murdered 50 million babies in 40 years, mothers commit 60% of all child abuse, etc.
The standard of living for both men and women in the USA is still much higher than in many parts of Pakistan, India and Indonesia. Overpopulation causes slum conditions and lack of education causes overpopulation. Thinning the herd isn't so bad.
Not just tight assed white men.
Theophanes: The problem with social engineers of our day is they incorrectly assume the only differences between men and women are their respective sex organs. Truth is, the differences are vast and they encompass the spirit, mind and body.
I agree with much you have put down here Theo. Fertility goddesses were once very popular because too many children didn't live long enough to become adults. This is no longer the case. Marriage can still be a good thing.
Freeing the slaves in the USA was a big deal. Before that happened slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire. A lot of the work done in the West doesn't require a lot of physical strength.
Very thorough answer. Thank you Lisa
I agree with you adorablebaby. Every society that's allowed its women unrestrained freedoms and took the authority from their husbands, have always destroyed themselves from within. The Lord intended for a good man to govern his wife and family. :0)
but if the man truely love his wife he would show it by only having one wife :) while other are able to have more, like other cultures but that just how i would consider who is a good loving husband to a selfish one.
Adorablebaby: I do not think I could love two women at the same time and I don't know how other men can. I agree with you that to love a woman fully, a man must reserve his love, affection and attention for her and her alone. :0)
I agree with you on many count, JamieD, but I also know (from a Biblical standpoint), that the Almighty gave man the authority to rule over his home and this includes his wife and children as well. The Federal government has now displaced most men.
Well I guess, for me, it's a good thing times have changed because after I've been screwed over and abused by so many men, I will not allow a man to rule over me. But I do realize God knew what he was doing.
JamieD: Have you ever considered making better decisions regarding the neanderthals you allow into your life? You say you've been screwed over and abused many times by men, but what have you done to stop that from happening? Try a good man for once.
Actually yes, since I've found God, I changed my life and my choice in men. And I do allow him to make most of my decisions because he is better at it than me:) I've got the best man in the world, for me, and I'm not letting him go. Thanks
I wish you the very best, JamieD. And, I congratulate you on turning your life over to Christ Yeshua and Almighty YHWH. That is the best decision you will ever make and its ramifications will be known in this lifetime and in the life to come.
Cre8iveOne: If a husband and wife truly become "one flesh" as the Bible states, then I cannot see the left hand fighting against the right. What we see today are spouses competing with each other instead of completing each other.
Cj. I respect your opinion but you are not really validating the question that was asked. I gave my opinion on control. And in a different way, you have stated what I am saying that people can work together, as one.
Cre8iveOne, I intended to agree with you - in my own way. If a man and woman become "one flesh" there should not be a struggle for control or power. With respect for the original question...I already answered it above. God gave man the responsibility
Biblical standard? Lots of interpretations so lots of standards.
Rod: The Bible is not that hard to figure out for those who do not have a vested interest in making it say what they want it to. Why should I care what others think of Holy Scripture or even if they understand it? It's their problem...not mine.
So what is your vession of the Biblical standard then, C.J?
I believe the man should be the "lord of the manor" and should govern his family and wife with love, respect, justice and affection. "Too many cooks spoil the broth". :0)
