In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Thank you again for the time you put into your writing and having the strength to share your views.It is my view that the feminist get their ammo, etc. against a standard family from broken families. From boys who know not how to be men. From girls who know not how to be women. And from boys and girls marrying. This in my view is the failure of our families, our elders, our churchs, our society in general. There is no one place one can point ones finger without having three more pointed back at them by their own hand. I would say that finding a way to make men and women of quality would be a worth while effort and use of ones time.just my two cents worth
I believe feminists, atheists, etc., all get their "ammo" from the same location: the liberal-progressive agenda. We can thank liberals for having boys who don't know how to be men and girls who don't know how to be women. Our families, elders, churches and society have all been infiltrated and subverted by liberal-progressive mindspeak. Remember WHO is behind anything and everything that is ungodly... --Fred in AZ
And who is that, exactly, satan?
Beautifully said! You hit the nail on the head, Patrice.
Excellent article! Being a woman of God, married to a man of God, is a truly wonderful life!
Well stated!You go, girl.Fran
Well done, Patrice.A. McSp
WONDERFUL piece, Patrice...IDK, I think DH and I are pretty 'equal' when it comes to who's in charge, it depends on the situation, we defer to each other both...but then again, we came together later in life, and our kids were almost all grown...so we really didn't have to deal with that aspect of it...A marriage truly needs to be a partnership, which you and your DH clearly have...
Nicely written, well stated. I enjoyed it very much. I followed the links to the feminist articles you referenced and was highly disturbed. I must think on those more.
Thank you, Patrice. Well written and well stated. I followed the links to the articles you referenced in your first sentence. I found them disturbing. Many thanks for your articles and your blog.
Very well said - I have always thought that my Christian family structure gave me the most in freedom. My husband took care of a lot of the things that were worrying so I could nurture the children and create a home - now that we are retired the split is more even as we help each other and become even better friends!
Exactly right, Patrice.
I'm happy for you......but please remember that you had, and have, a choice. You did not HAVE to choose subservience-- you had an option and this was what you wanted. I have known, in my life, too many women who had no choice-- they had never heard of feminism, never heard that a woman's place was to do anything but suffer, and for them it was a lifetime of cold meals, hard knocks, and a choice between submission and being beaten on a daily basis.After all, they were "only women."It isn't as if, back in the Golden Days, all the men knew how to be men. It would be nice if that were the case, and there were some way we could work our collective way back to being guaranteed a "Little House On the Prairie" family if we just stayed in our God-given places, but it doesn't always work like that.
I'm not sure what 3rd world country you come from, but I'm sure you are grateful to now live in America and in our information age.
What does that have to do with anything? She is simply saying women didn't always have choices and it wasn't always so great the ones they had. Being glad to life in America doesn't mean it's always been great for everyone.
Patrice,I love your article!!! I whole-heartedly concur. I get so tired of extended family members, and even members of the Christian community putting me on-the-spot trying to get me to do or say something that will look like I am usurping my husband. I am the coordinator for a local homeschool satellite program, which is also a Christian organization. The three ladies that I work with all have the opinion that I really should take more of, what I would call, a feminist stand and stop being the "Little House on the Prairie" kind of wife.Anyway, I appreciated your article and I thought you did a great job of describing the submission issue and putting it in a very clear perspective. I am going to share the link with my 23yo daughter and a few others.Tammy
