A feminist is a supporter of the rights and equality for women, politically, economically and socially. It is not about power and forcing her will on others.
With all do respect and with a humble heart. The modern day feminist movement is branded by the left and it has nothing to do with equal rights within society. It is nothing more than a political organizing tactic to group women up and direct them towards the path of socialism. At the same time comes social consequences that are desired by the left to destroy the relationship between men and women within loving relationships. There was a case for an equal rights movement in the US at one time but there is no such need in our society today. Any sentiment that still exists to make women feel as if they are being stomped on is purely for political gain.
I think you are taking your second paragraph way too far. You are grouping men up into a football team against women. This is exactly what the modern day feminist movement wants you to do. They want us to group each other up and point fingers at each other because it creates conflict and conflict is what they believe advances society.
Starting with your third paragraph, you start playing for the female football team. You are referring to a condition in society that has since eroded and you are wanting the other football team to accept their portion of the blame for it. What portion of the blame for the feminist movement am I guilty of? Ever since sin was introduced into the world the desire for conflict between men and women has existed among the forces of evil and so the modern day feminist movement was inevitable. Todays feminist movement is completely unrelated to how the feminist movement started out and has an entirely different purpose. Slowly over the years it was taken over by the left and turned into a political organizing scheme against the civil society.
In your fourth paragraph you continue to direct your opinion against men as if men are an opposing football team. I know there are some men out there that use the bible quotes you speak of to promote their belief that they should be able to dominate and control their wife against their will but I know that is not the case among Christian men in general. Basically it doesn't get any simpler than this, a marriage should reflect the relationship between Christ and the church. That means men are to love their wives as Jesus loved the church (his people) but woman are to submit to their husbands as we (the church) submit to Jesus.
I ended my last paragraph speaking of marriage but how is it that we merge the issue of inequality in society with our roles as husband and wife in marriage? We merge them because that is what the feminist movement wants us to do in order to destroy God's plan of order within marriage. In reality they are two separate subjects. On a day to day basis I see no mistreatment of women by men in general within our society so it seems you are promoting a condition within society that doesn't exist and you merge that nonexistent condition in with marriage. If there are individual cases that support your opinion then by all means speak of them but the way you worded this speaks of a football game that the feminist movement itself actively promotes. I am not playing for any football team. I believe there are common issues among younger women and younger men from my own perspective as a young man but I never prejudge anyone and treat others as individuals.
