This is a wee rant.
Pardon me; I have a headache, so that may account for my grumpy mood.
If I was to apply a standard of biblical womanhood that includes marriage, children, family, working at home, working a bit outside the home, being submissive to my husband, accepting authority with relationships, and pursuing a quiet spirit, I am forcing other women into a mold that I ought not to. I am told (quite correctly, I might add) that there is not one model of biblical womanhood, and I ought to stop being such a mean old lady.
If I decide that biblical womanhood is about being the warrior, challenging the existence of male and female roles, and donning my sword, I'm empowering women. It's not forcing women into a mold; it's doing them a favour. There really isn't one model of biblical womanhood.... except this one, of course.
I don't get it. My fluctuating estrogen levels are interfering with sound thinking, I'm afraid.
Now, I have a dirty kitchen to attack. Where's my sword?
