Women Basically want 3 things
1. the Power and Authority of a man
2. The Privileges of Being a Woman
3. The Accountability of A child.

I pity those ignorant, naive men who are fighting for Equality for women. Those idiots don't realize that they are being cheated,the woman you are fighting for,is trying to overthrow your power. She will expect you to man up and fight for her,or Provide when times are hard. But when times are good,they will drag equality with you. Take the Russian/Ukraine war as a case study. The women are allowed to leave,but the men are mandated to stay. Not a single feminist came out to say women were being Relegated (because they are weak,which is true).
You know why? It is because times are hard,it is war,so they don't have the luxury to be fighting for equality now.
This is so apt. Wow...I hail oh. God bless you.

Man and woman are both equal in the sense that they are both living being created in God's image. They are only different functionally. They ought to complement each other and not try to function as the other. No matter how great a man is, he can never function as a woman. The position of women as mothers wife and help is a dignified one. Sad the society is being subverted. Women are to be respected in their being mothers and home keepers and not in their doomed attempts at becoming man.
Well said! cool

Superior in what way?

This society is damned already if the males in it don't realize that continuous repression and harassment of the women is killing them!

In the civilized world, women are President, Queen and Prime minister and things are working beautifully...

But our dear barbaric cavemen will prefer to be under a male who knows not his left from his right simply due to mischief of 'man is superior'..... Probably to an ape! undecided

I keep asking this question...

Aside U.S and U.K where else do you people refer to, " as civilized world??". Since You have chosen to tag yourself "uncivilized."

Gender equality isn't western but commonsense. undecided

During humanitarian missions,women & kids are considered a major priority,but common sense demand everyone should be treated equally.

The current war going on in Ukraine,women & children are allowed to leave the country, irrespective of their ages,but men [ under certain age grades ] are asked to stay back to protect their country.
Common sense demand everyone should stay back & defend their country.

It's on record,that females are generally given a lighter sentence than males,even when they commit the same crime.
Common sense demands everyone should be treated equally, irrespective of gender.

It's also on record,that the girl child & women have many NGO & even government ministries catering specifically to their needs,but not the same can be said for the boy child & men,in general.
Common sense demands everyone should be treated equally.

Now,I ask,it's it really about treating both genders equally ?

In all honesty,the "system" was never about gender equality.

If it's about countries giving opportunities to women. Nigeria does that...At least we've had a female speaker in NAS lower chamber.

Again,You accuse God of putting some strata in place but where or when exactly did this happen?? undecided

You use the word accuse so much it appears sketchy. Where exactly are you getting at with the word. Newton's Law of action and reaction, should I accuse him of formulating it when he actually did formulate it.

You know where this is going to descend to and I'm not game. God did not lay down the standard of headship, fine. It's your choice. You have the agency to choose what you think is right, I think it's called freewill. Feel free to exercise it, as I've exercised mine.

One thing I'd like for you to think about is - God making man the head of a home, is it faulty? Should he have made them co-equals? Ask yourself. And mind you, not being co-equals doesn't make one gender less worthy or more worthy of value before the eyes of God.

God did not make women second class citizens cause if he did, they wouldn't even be made mention of. He himself spoke against men who dealt treacherously with thier wives. He is not to blame for the way some of mankind treat womankind, which I guess is one of the reasons that gave birth to this gender equality you're talking about. Tell the men to work on themself inside out, instead of deciding to wreck structure. You yourself have given such advice to men on this forum.

Perhaps because you haven't delved page by page, with all humility and honesty into the Holy Book, that's why you think God could not have made such an institution that you make an accusation against Him. And if you think what the Holy Book says about where and when God instituted marriage, and furthermore the guides, principles and commands to govern it and make the house a home are false, feel free to argue with history.

1. God never laid a standard of headship for men, so yes, you falsely accuse God in this. undecided

2. God never made man the head of a home or any home. So, yet again, you falsely accuse God in this too. undecided

3. Why do you want so bad to hold on to structure that God Himself does not approve of ? undecided

By the way, what advice to keep what structure do you accuse me of giving now? undecided

4. First of all, the book ain't Holy unless you are hear and now declaring the words of Satan written in the same book also Holy by default. undecided

Such as institution as what? I have delved in the pages and found God instead cursed the institution and what is the inequality you see today along with all the structures you claim are all results of God's curse, also near the beginning. So, realize now why I keep saying you falsely accuse God in all of this? undecided

1. God approved of a structure. Delve into the pages.

2. God made man the head of woman. So, if the two cohabit as a couple, who is the head? Delve into the pages and form a conclusion.

3. God does not approve of men who deal treacherously with thier women? Is it the same as assigning headship to the man. Besides in the absence of a man, a woman is her own head. In the absence of the father, the mother assumes headship, even though she has a male child. Delve into the pages.

4. Even the Holy Book clearly states that Satan utters inspired sayings.

God cursed this institution. The same institution that is responsible for you being born? Or you dropped from the sky? Or you were born out of wedlock? I believe you can complete the sentence. No diss intended.

Should I start digging up your comments and POV's and attach scriptures that back them up. I won't. Read through the pages of the holy books yourself. It doesn't have to be the whole cause it could take a whole lot of time. The sections that touch on marital dealings, you'll see your thoughts there. You will know and realize that on the basis of precedence, the Holy Books uttered then first, at least 19 centuries before you came into being.


However, I want to ask. What structure did God approve of?

I guess you're pointing fingers at the old testament because it was the first to state the duties and privilege of the man and woman in a marriage.
Perhaps you're confusing something. All humans have the same value, worth and are equal before God. A man is his own head,likewise a woman is her own head as she handles decisions for herself, even when in her father's house. She decides to make a vow to God today, I assure you it would be deemed authentic.

Well, Christ re-established monogamy. Why?
A good number of the people of Israel were given in to polygamous lifestyle and maltreatment of thier women. The Old Testament decried it. The New Testament did the same. Did instituting monogamy make the couple co-heads? No. Corinthians and Ephesians clarifies this question. Perhaps because it wasn't Christ who uttered those words, it might not seat well with you. However, don't forget that Ephesians and Corinthians are a part of the New Testament. Also , keep it in mind that the person who wrote Ephesians had a direct contact with Christ, after Christ had ascended to heaven.

3. Again, Jesus Christ never instituted monogamy and He did not change any of God's Law to far as marriage is concerned. Instead, Jesus Christ came to redeem/save men from God's curse as written of in Genesis 3 vs 16 - 22, so that those who submit to Jesus Christ instead of the curse can enter again into the presence of God - God's Heaven. undecided

Also, Corinthians and Ephesians both quote from God's curse on marriage, a curse which Jesus Christ came to redeem His followers from. And we both know that nothing that it is impossible to submit to God and that which is unholy at the same time. undecided

You need to do some homework, a little reading should suffice so you can speak with solid authority henceforth. And I said re-established not establish.

A man will leave his father and mother and stick to his wife and they will become one flesh, is this monogamy or polygamy? Genesis and Matthew made this same exact statements.

And you said God cursed marriage. That is a joke of the century. Read the Holy Book on what God cursed. And if he cursed marriage as you claim, isn't it so funny that the woman who birthed his son was soon to be married. The woman who birthed his son on earth was born from a marriage, an institution God himself cursed. Are you saying God is fighting against himself.

And where do you get that God encouraged single people to go into marriage? undecided

Did you not read in Matthew 19 vs 11 - 12 that the same God created some Eunuchs from birth, allowed some to be made Eunuchs in this life and permitted others to live as Eunuchs for the sake of His Kingdom? undecided

2. Read your comments above.

Also I do not understand your use of emojis in replying me. Why do you have to hide behind a facade of mockery of you were so sure of what your saying. No need for the emojis to do the talking for you after the words you typed. If you've been so sure of yourself you would not have began adding those to your replies.

In addition, stop contradicting yourself. And learn to follow a thread of reasoning instead of dumping it when it is working for you again, that's not how you have a meaningful discussion.

1. Open your eyes and mind so you can clearly comprehend what is being said to you. undecided

In the very same context of Genesis 3 vs 16, God also placed a curse on woman(irrespective of marital status) in child pregnancy and childbirth. Yes, the same God who commanded, "Be fruitful and multiply" in Genesis 1 vs 28, in Genesis 3 vs 16a cursed childbearing, so that every child born into this world is born via God's curse. undecided
16 Then God said to the woman,
“I will cause you to have much trouble when you are pregnant. And when you give birth to children, you will have much pain.... -
Genesis 3 vs 16a
Can that which is born of God's curse be of God's blessing? undecided

God cursed everyone born into this world as a result of the above(and all the other curses in the context of Genesis 3 vs 16 - 22). undecided

2. My emojis as my thing. They are sort of markers to guide my sight through my statements . undecided

3. Point to the contradictions - I challenge you. undecided
