by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideNow, Debi moves on to the "Go-to Gal" which is supposed to be the female version of the King. "The Go-to GalMy son's wife, Zephyr, is a Go-to Gal, similar to the King type.  That is not to say she is overtly bossy; she knows her place as a wife.  But she is strong, capable, and gives a sense of taking care of the greater number of people.  Go-to Gals ooze with confidence, have strong opinions, and do well organizing people.  These types often have a queenly presence.  Beware: Girls that are dominant can easily become Grabbers."

“Thus Male Headship” – Christianity and Gender Essentialism

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsMy last two posts have involved the use of sociological studies by Christians, in support of the doctrine of male headship, known in its harsher and gentler forms, respectively, as "Christian patriarchy" or "complementarianism."  Using science as a support for our premises is very characteristic of the culture of Western thought in which most of us have been steeped since birth.

But it keeps popping up on all sorts of sites and links. … [Read more...]
