Why are submissive women considered weak?
I'm referring to a question I asked a while back.
From my observation it's usually (other women) who call them weak.
In large part it's due to advances women have made in various areas of the world to gain more equality with men.
Being submissive to men is viewed as being a regressive move.
By virtue of being born with a penis should that make men superior?
It's difficult to be seen as submissive and yet be thought of as equal. Progressive women feel submissive women make it more difficult to change the status quo of the overall male mindset.
And yet true equality would mean women would have the (option) to be submissive if they want to without being judged by other women.
Some women have chosen to remove the words "to love and obey" from traditional wedding vows while others still want the traditional marriage espoused and written in the bible Ephesians 5:22-33
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord."
"For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body."
Life is a (personal) journey!
Ultimately no one should care what others think.
It ALL depends:
(1) There are women who play the submissive game to get what THEY want. These type of women aren't dumb nor self-abnegating in the least. In fact, they are quite savvy, self-assured, smart as a fox, & cunning & dangerous as a king cobra. They KNOW what THEY want & are apt to use the men in question to serve their means & ends & to get what they ultimately want. Such women are adept at using the premise it is so much better to beguile with sweet honey than it is with vinegar. They have, even embody such charm but don't be fooled at all. These women may be submissive & sweet but they are........WOLVES (ouch). They may play submissive but they are........IN CONTROL, no weakness there!
(2) There are women who are submissive because paradoxically it makes them feel empowered. They get a psychological, even psychic rush of being submissive to their male partners & even husband. They know better but somehow get a thrill out of being submissive. They know that if they are submissive, they have their men in the palms of their hands. They contend that they are at the height of their feminine power when they are submissive to their male partners. These women aren't fools. They exude that feminine aura because to them, it is a pure intoxicant, nothing less nothing more. They are actually exercising THEIR power & influence through their submission.
(3) Then there are women who absolutely have NO sense of self. They feel that women's role is inferior & subordinate to that of men. They believe that they as women DON'T count for much or not at all. They have little or no identity of their own & that their male partner is superior. So they submerge their power & submit to their male partner or other males. They are powerless & weak because they maintain that women have no voice & should speak when spoken to. It is nothing for these women to be voiceless in their homes & to let men dictate every facet of their lives down to the most minute & personal details.
