Recently there was an article published called, "I'm A Christian Girl And I'm Not A Feminist, Because God Did Not Intend For Women To Be Equals." While we are all subjected to our opinions, I have mine and I want to share it to show that just because you are a Christian, doesn't mean you can't be a feminist of some sort.
I am the type of girl that does not necessarily consider myself a feminist, but I am still all for supporting women. I think that men and women should be equal. I think men and women deserve equal opportunities, equal leadership roles, and equal pay. I do not think that men are necessarily superior to women. We are all human and we should all be treated EQUALLY.
I am a strong Christian and grew up going to church and lived in a Christian church my entire life. I love the Lord with everything I have and believe that everything in the Bible is true, but here is how I perceive the creation of women.
Yes, God created man first and then woman, and he created women out of the rib of a man. He created a woman for a man to have a companion because man could not live alone. In order to reproduce, woman had to be created.
So I'll say it again for the people in the back,
Men and women should be treated as EQUALS.
As a woman in the 21st century, I believe in working for my success and reaching my goals on my own, not because a man handed it to me. I believe that women should have equal opportunities as men.
When it comes to relationships however, I have more of a traditional perspective you could say.
I believe that men should pursue women when it comes to a romantic relationship, and I do believe that men should "wear the pants in a relationship" and be the head of the household. But, with that love in a relationship, there should be mutual respect and you should lift each other up and a man should support their woman in whatever she wants to do and the goals she is trying to reach.
Women should do the same, respect their husbands and support them in everything they do, because a relationship is a partnership.
So call it what you want, feminism or not, but I support women.
Everyone is allowed to have their own opinions, but this is mine, and I think that there are many other women out there who could agree.
