Editor’s note: This is one of the big lies in Quiverfull Evangelicalism – that feminists want all women to be men. Nope, they want all women to have a choice in how they live their lives, not be forced into gender-prescribed roles against their will. But the very religious finds the idea of free agency for women to be too threatening to their masculinity. What weak grasps they must hold on their own masculinity to be so threatened by women’s choices.
And we’re also a society that hates women. And you say, “Yea, those male chauvinist, they hate women.” No, women hate women. The people who hate women more than anybody else on this planet are feminist. They hate women; they want women to be men. They don’t want them to be women. And any woman who says, “I believe that it is my desire to be in my home, to raise godly children, to support my husband in the endeavors that he has to go through in order to provide for our family”, any woman who does that is considered a failure in our society; she’s looked down upon. And I know that from personal experience, I know the things that my wife has suffered. The things that people have said because, you know… they say, “Why don’t you help your husband?”
