As a young girl gradually growing into a woman, it will sound a bit weird to say that I don’t believe in feminism. I know people’s eyebrows are raised and are already asking “how won’t she believe in such a thing? It’s an advantage for women to be equal with men” but I am solely and strongly against this cause. I look at these people who are so passionate about gender equality that I often end up shaking my head. Women who fight to become equal with the men in their lives are ignorant. In my opinion, I feel they do not really know what being a woman is all about.
Women weild so much power that no man; not even a president can contend with. So much happens at the influence of a woman. Women are so powerful that the growth and contuinity of the world is dependent on women. I see women as the core of human existence. We have control over so many things without even being aware of it. Have women walk by and you have some men already losing hold of their senses. Women are mesmerizing beings, smart, intelligent, have stronger will power than men and that is why at creation time, God gave women the greatest challenge to be helpers to the men. He called the man the head but the woman, a neck.
The neck is a very important part of the body and performs key roles that keep the body alive and well. The neck upholds the head; making it stand appropriately as it should. If the neck is cut off the body, the head is dead. The neck controls the speech, chewing of food, closing your mouth, facial expressions etc. The neck works with the bone of the head play the vital role of supporting the brain, sensory organs, nerves
As the neck, women perfom the job of keeping the man alive in every area; mentally, spiritually, emotionally, financially. Women are so important to the home that nothing can take their place. Even when a man divorces his wife, he brings another one home. Like the neck, we are strong and that is why we can be more than one thing to our husband and kids. Women have the patience to listen even when they don’t want to. Women have softer heart and that makes us compassionate, loving; not weak. Women have the ability to turn things around positively and they are blessed with the power to create solutions to problems. Women are creators, innovators and play key roles in life. Either a mother, daughter, sister or wife, you have so much strength and that is why the men around look up to you or run to you when they need advise. Women are deep thinkers.
Feminists, to me, do not understand the extent of their might, that is why they are struggling to be equal with men who cannot stand the things we go through. Splitting the bills, having the same positions in organisations and political arenas does define equality to me. Men, try as hard as they may, can never be equal with women. Feminists are lowering their standards by trying to be equal with people we have power over. I know people won’t admit it but women have a way of making things better. We know the right words to say and when to say them. A “woman” understands that being submissive to her husband doesn’t mean she is a slave to him. A wise woman knows that she runs the home and makes the decisions with the man think he is the one calling the shots. You don’t have to fight for the control you already have, all you have to do is understand how to put your power into use.
Women are strong and they always have a way of pulling through the toughest of situations; that’s the extent of the power that we have. Many men will freak out if they have the opportunity to be in our shoes. If men face half the things that we go through, then I can consider being equal with them. I see the men around me as being blessed to have me around them. I see myself and I see generations of greatness starting with my seeds (my children), I see myself as a channel of the world’s continuation. Even the bible says he that finds a wife (woman) has found a good thing and obtained favour from the Lord. Imagine that. We are so great that we bring favour and blessings to the men in our lives from God. Why then should I settle for less, when I am more in my creator’s eye?
