In an era of dubious secular holidays, entire months set aside for celebrations of sin, and lackluster heroes, there is rightful skepticism about such events as Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day. It certainly seems odd that the people who struggle to define a woman also set aside time for the celebration thereof. Yet a closer look at such events reveals something shocking: they’re not celebrating women or femininity at all.
The accomplishments they showcase are when women act as men, or at least when they are not embracing the feminine. Whether women are being lauded (and infantilized) as place kickers in football games or promoted for their entry into combat units, or it’s “Take Your Daughter to Work Day,” there’s nothing distinctly feminine about any of it. The rarity with which woman’s true femininity gets even a passing nod shows just how insidious the problem is.
I have always looked at the Biblical depiction as a “weaker vessel” but its not in a bad way but as a prized valuable place in Gods plan….What joy I get when I see whole healthy families with a father and mother, but sadly society tries to make the woman independent, that she can divorce easily and get helped by people that basically hate men and the family arrangement…Its really sad it has come to this..
Yea Sarah!! You have again scorched the seeming "values" that try to erode any semblance order that this Country has set apart in so many tenets of our Founding Fathers, let alone our Christian Founders. When a Supreme Court Justice, who now sits on the highest Court of our land cannot define a woman, we are in big trouble. She is simply a barometer of all of the instances you so eloquently described in your article. What a sad state of affairs!!
