How feminism is destroying family structures and homes in our society and introducing a toxic culture and tradition.
The London Feminist Network defines ‘‘Patriarchy refers to a society in which there are unequal power relations between women and men whereby women are systematically disadvantaged and oppressed’.
Most radical feminists see the family as a tool important in maintaining male power.
“Men have perceived this threat, by natural responses of flight of fight while women predominantly adopt a less aggressive tend-and-befriend response,” Dr. Joohyung Lee, from the Prince Henry’s Institute in Melbourne.
Even when Jesus was arrested, the first response of Simon Peter, was a fight response as seen in the gospel of Mathew.
At this, one of Jesus’ companions drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. 52“Put your sword back in its place, Jesus said to him. “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword.’’
Suzanne Venker and the late Phyllis Schlafly, authors of The Flipside of Feminism have this to say:
“Feminists realize all too well that they can never achieve a level playing field in the marketplace as long as their male competitors have the advantage of homemaker wives. Women on the left know that in order to get ahead more easily, they must deprive men of their advantage in having stay-at-home wives. The desire to eliminate the full-time homemaker has been feminists’ goal all along. The need for a second income was never the goal.”
The birth rate for unmarried women in the US has risen steadily from 18 percent in 1980 to 41 percent in 2012. This means women are settling for child bearing with no security of legal marriages or alimony. Divorce is over 50% for first time marriages. 63% for second marriages. And over 75% for third time marriages.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35 34
The men have decided to fight back not with love but indifference. Single mother hood and cohabitation is rising because men do not have legal and binding commitments to the mothers of their children.
We need to reverse the current trends. We need to value one another. We need to understand that men and women are partners and not adversaries.
