The Number 1 Postfeminist Dating Mistake

May 15th, 2008 by MidoriLei


I appreciated what feminism has done in terms of equality in the job market, but as far as how it’s affected the dating scene, equality has become synonymous to no differentiation of male/female roles. Although males and females are equal in value and essence, I still hold strong to the belief in male leadership. Here are some thoughts on the very controversial subject.

Bra Burners Beware!

    You can’t believe that men and women are equal and yet that men should lead. These are inherently contradictory beliefs and any traditional woman I know would say the same thing.

    Also, bra burning was a myth– Please check your facts before reiterating ignorant and false information. Thank you.

    Jennifer, thank you for the bra burning facts! My apologies. I did not research that.

    As far as men and women being equal, I compare it to a couple in a vehicle. Only one person can drive, but that doesn’t mean that their different roles= inequality. I just think that when it comes down to a big decision that a couple has to make and there is no agreement but a decision has to be made, I believe the woman should “yield” to the man’s decision to maintain the peace and unity.

    My pastor explains it this way:

    h3. Submission Does Not Mean:
    A husband is in ultimate authority.
    A wife does not have independent thoughts.
    A wife does not seek to influence her husband.
    A wife must obey her husband’s command to sin.
    A wife is less intelligent or competent than her husband.
    h3. Submission Does Mean:
    A husband and wife are equal with complementary roles.
    Wives are to submit like Jesus did in Gethsemane (Luke 22:42).
    Husbands are to lovingly lead like Jesus does the Church (Eph. 5:25).
    A single woman should only marry a man she can follow.
    Christian marriage shows the Trinity and the gospel.
