Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil...
Female submission is a hot topic on the right-wing internet. Apparently, every problem in the world comes from the lack of it, and every social evil would disappear if only women started submitting again; at least, if you listen to some.
But could it be that the real problem is actually that modern women are too submissive? You'll ask me how is it even possible in the age of feminism? Well, bear with me and I'll state my case.
Have you noticed how shallow many modern women are? They are like empty vessels, without any original thought in their heads. They will blindly follow social trends and do or support whatever the MSM tell them is the latest coolest thing to do at the moment. They are always trying to fit in. I once personally witnessed a feminist lady walking into a traditional Eastern church where all the females wear headcoverings and start demanding that she's be given one, too, in order not to stick out. That made me wonder how many ardent feminists would actually support ISIS clothing guidelines if these guys ever came to power.
They lack convictions,too. Mothers who had stayed home with their own children told me it was nowadays OK to work because "everybody does it.". Society conditioning overrides even healthy biological instincts, as I've known ladies who would cry when they first had to leave their baby in the care of others but followed the advice of those who told them a 2-mos old baby should learn to fend for themselves and that a nice house in the suburbs is worth the sacrifice.
Progressives like to present themselves as rebels. Our culture romanticises the concept. Yet, the progressive ideas are the mainstream now and the women who follow a feminist script just follow the path of the least resistance. It's often not even because of any firmly held beliefs, but simply because "everybody does it". They are the very opposite of rebels and are, in fact, conformists submissive to the society demands.
I know that at this point many men would probably rub their hands and say something along the lines of women being stupid and what else could you expect of them? And yet, I don't think it's the truth. Because I have also been privileged to know many fine ladies who had very strong moral opinions and convictions, knew right from wrong, wouldn't approve of the sin in their children's lives under the guise of "love" and wouldn't follow the multitude just to fit in.
So what's the difference between the two? It probably has something to do with inborn differences between the people, but also is probably the result of socialisation, when many girls are taught to always unquestioningly follow the authority. It may have worked OK when it was their husband or father, but now the authority switched to the MSM and social media so they will follow that. Yet, when the Scriptures teach us to obey those above us, they don't tell us to be blind in our obedience and submission. When the apostles said:" We ought to obey God rather than men," they meant is a guideline for both sexes, so women aren't exempt.
The wedding liturgy our church uses dates back to the 16th century so it is hardly feminist and yet is says that the wife is to obey her husband in all the good things only. In my opinion, it's important for women to have moral convictions of their own and not only follow someone else's instructions. If your daughter is a sincere believer you won't have debates about the length of her skirts, she will dress modestly to please the Lord. She won't engage in missionary dating. She won't marry a man who doesn't accept the Scriptural roles for men and women and won't leave your grandchildren in daycare. And she will do all this out of her own free will, because of the strength of her faith and her convictions and she'll teach her children to do the same.
Many men prefer soft, pliable girls as spouses or girlfriends but is it really good to be married to someone who is so easily influenced? The truth is, a breadwinner husband spends most of his time away from home, and shouldn't be burdened with an additional task of monitoring his wife and micromanaging her daily activities, he should trust her enough to be a reasonable person and a functioning adult who is capable of fulfilling her own duties. If she needs a babysitter, how can you trust her with raising kids?
What do you all think on the matter?
