by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife – How Not to Get Married
Editor’s note: This is Lori Alexander’s response to an article shared by Dennis Prager titled “Strong Women Should Never Do These Things For a Man…or Anyone Else” that was written by Nicole Yi at Pop Sugar. The article does not address the issues of finding a man and getting married, it’s all about not compromising your principals for a man. Lori, predictably, makes it all about how all feminists and strong women are selfish hags that want to make everyone else unhappy and will never marry. I pity the fool, because Lori’s spin is truly foolish, even for a Christian woman. It sounds more like a guidebook for the fictitious world in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ideas that might get you abused if you take them to heart.
“Feminism is dedicated to making women unhappy.”
Change your appearance.“If your SO (significant other) is a decent human being, they won’t ever force you to alter the way you look for their benefit.” As godly women, we will want to change our appearance to please our husband.
Compromise our passions. “Absolutely no one should get in the way of your goals. It is your life, after all, and nobody else will regret leaving any dreams behind more than you.” As godly women and our husband’s help meet, we are to follow them where ever they go and support their goals. If our goals are lined up with the Word of God, we will marry, bear children, and guide the home while our husband is known in the gates!
Wait for his approval.“A strong woman plays by her rules and doesn’t sit around for instructions.” A godly woman plays by the LORD’s rules and follows her husband’s lead, even being subject to him in everything.
Let him change who you are.“Don’t change who you are for anyone but yourself.” No, change yourself for the Lord which will be more attractive to your husband as you become more loving, kind, generous, gentle, servant-hearted, joyful, meek, and quiet spirited.
You tell me what kind of a woman most men would want to marry: a selfish and self-centered feminist or a kind, godly woman?
