Modern Feminism Is Making Men Lazy By Taking Away Their God-Given Responsibilities, And No Woman Wants That

They no longer have to provide, protect or be responsible - is that really what we want?

Modern Feminism Is Making Men Lazy By Taking Away Their God-Given Responsibilities, And No Woman Wants That

In this day and age, everything is about equality and proving that women can do the same things men can. It's all about proving a point and disregarding consequences.

Recently, a post from 2018 has been recirculating all over social media. Dale Partridge posted a picture of a couple, and the caption is beautiful, and it really made me think.

The caption reads:

"This culture's feminism is actually empowering men to be the worst versions of themselves. They get sex without commitment. They get the pregnancy without the baby. They get the date without picking up the check. They get a relationship without being a gentleman. No opening doors, no pulling out chairs, no providing, no protecting, and no male responsibility. Because hey... everything is equal. In other words, modern feminism is the perfect recipe for men to side-step God's call for how to treat a woman. But a Godly man knows better. A Godly man knows he's equal in value but different in role. He knows that he can be a protector, a provider, and a lover without being 'toxic' or 'dangerous.' Men, it's easy to support a movement that allows us to get lazy - it's why so many men have already jumped on board. But don't do what most men do. Do what Godly men do. Cherish women. Value women. Listen to women. But don't ever escape your role in the process."

This is so beautifully written and pinpoints how our differences as men and women are beautiful in themselves.

I have heard it said before, "A woman should know how to change a tire, but should never have to."

Letting a man open the door for you or accepting a man's help to do a task is not disempowering.

Yes, you can physically open your own door, but a man choosing to be chivalrous does not insinuate you can't, it just means he thinks you deserve to have the door held open for you.

We as women are called to call men up and push them to be the best version of themselves.

When we abandon that task and change our role to be the same as that of men, the world loses the quality that women were meant to possess.

Being different doesn't mean unequal. That's something we have to understand to fully comprehend the beauty in our differences.

Men and women were created to complement each other, not be the same carbon copy. Choose to embrace those differences and flourish knowing that you have qualities that men don't.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
