Roles of Men and Women Are Confused

stockphotopro_92001xlm_media_drv4_radiusKevin lifted the canoe into the water, while his grandfather, Ernie, carried the fishing tackle. They worked to get into the boat and prepare for a morning of fishing.

After an hour, Ernie asked his grandson if he had a girlfriend.

Kevin blushed. “Well, no. But I like some girls.”

“Son, what’s stopping you from dating one of them?”

Kevin shrugged. “Girls have asked me out but I don’t feel comfortable with that. I watch old movies and the girls wait for the men to call and ask them out. I guess that’s what I want. To be in the lead, you know.”

“Things have certainly changed, Son.”

“Yeah. The girls are kinda pushy. Why are they like that?”…

In the past, men controlled society and women were considered second-class citizens. Women did not have the opportunities that they have today. They could not vote, and often worked at menial jobs for less pay. Through the efforts of many heroines over time, they fought and won many rights.

In those days, men courted women, but women set the boundaries of their relationships. Women valued their own chastity, and though they lacked social equality, they expected a man’s respect for their femininity. Men knew they had to grow up if they had a chance to get married. Accordingly, women encouraged men to improve and helped strengthen society.

As women gained a better station in life, some took the opportunity to make other changes. In their view, women suffered repression and should fight for sexual liberation. They pushed generations of women into becoming sexually aggressive. As a result, we have confusion today about the roles of men and women.

Far too many men in the past had disrespected women and treated them as sex objects, taking advantage of them. However, the feminist movement produced a similar brand of female, further complicating the picture. These women told men that they had to get in touch with their feelings and become more feminine in order to be desirable, so men tried to assume this new shaky ground. Still dissatisfied, these women then demanded tougher men that were handsome, rugged, fit and rich.

Men tried to keep up, but lost their bearings. The natural roles of men and women fell apart in this new climate. The men who wanted to court women, and females who felt uncomfortable taking charge, faced ridicule. Young men were constantly under threat of sexual harassment charges, while watching girls wear fewer clothes and become more demanding and immoral. Everyone was hopelessly confused.

Whereas women used to cultivate and mature men, they now have abdicated that role by becoming the aggressors. Many men no longer have a reason to become gentlemen and repress their sexual appetites. They remain little boys, unable to handle adult relationships. As a result, women become more frustrated with men.

The feminists who took the genders off on a tangent have hurt women immeasurably. Today, young men and women suffer to work against type and to be what they are not.

The unchangeable truth, however, is that God has always had a plan for what men and women would be, and He placed them in roles that will elevate both of them (Genesis 2:18-25). Men are to love their wives, treating them with respect, love, and tenderness, and be the type of man with whom a woman will find happiness and satisfaction. Wives are to love their husbands and commit to him and their children (Ephesians 5:22-28; Proverbs 31).

Those who push women to be sexually aggressive are agents of Satan trying to destroy God’s plan (John 8:44). That is why their way of life is depraved and destructive to both genders.

Stay strong and be what God desires, and we will all be happier. God made us what we are for a reason.

    Very well put.

    This is so true! Most of the time what we see in society, when the pendulum swings too far one way, it then swings too far the other way. I hope and pray that Christian men and women are the salt that flavors this old world and helps our young to see God’s ways are correct and settles us in the middle path. His wisdom is better than ours and He knows His business and creatures…US. We need to listen to our maker and take His advice on how to live in this world.
