Is That Really Necessary?

<rant start>
Jordan and I just had lunch downtown at Serops. We were in kinda a rush so much of our mealtime was spent silently chewing. A table or two away sat a chick in her early twenties leading a conversation with two other guys. As we ate I couldn't help but overhear parts of their conversation because she kept getting louder and louder! They went from religion, to politics, and finally ended with football, at which time she loudly expressed her disgust with the sport and the guys resigned themselves to disagree with her without even trying to counter-act her argument. And it was her argument.

Why do I note this you ask? There are a number of reasons. 1) I see in her everything about me that annoys me, 2) Americans are dumb, 3) It's completely unbiblical. I do not like people who are controversial just for the sake of being controversial. Like this world doesn't already have enough drama in it, they have to add more! It particularly annoys me with girls. Am I the only one who thinks that women don't always have to be right? It's like a culturally accepted thing in America that the woman is always right, and the man has no opinion. They just resign themselves. You see it all over television on almost every sitcom, and even in "Christian" comedy.

I've said this before, but I don't think this is what the suffragettes intended to happen when they rallied for womens rights. The feminists took over, and this is what they would call "progress". Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad that women aren't suppressed and mistreated in America like they are in some other countries, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this blog post right now. But I'm just frustrated with how far spread feminism is. As a result of feminist progress "submission" is a dirty word. Many "Christian" women may vow to honor and submit on their wedding day, but how many of them actually live that out or even want to? How often do "Christian" guys just trade their pants in for her skirt almost as soon as they slip that ring on? Anything to keep the little wife happy. UGH! I hate that. "If Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" That phrase completely contradicts what the word of God teaches about the family.

In view of all that I am so thankful that we have models of what biblical families and relationships should look like among us! The world is going to act like the world and there's nothing I can do about that. All I can do is change the way that I think, change the way that I act and learn to submit quietly and happily under the authorities that God has placed over me now. And IF someday (And that's an "IF" the size of Alaska!) God would have me marry the concept hopefully wouldn't be so foreign to me.

So yeah.. I'm officially anti-feminist.
