  1. @Princewill Njoku, did it ever occur to you that when it is said that one is your helpmate doesn’t mean in any way that they are more inferior or that you are more superior?
    If it never occurred to you, then the problem is not whether a man is the head or not or feminism or gender equality. The real issue you have and you will really want to consider is treating people with dignity and respect which is what feminism is all about. God bless you!

  2. @PRINCEWILL NJOKU Sir, if you read through the original post and understood correctly, she mentioned that “Marriage is such a tiny aspect of the entire conversation” which is where you have based the entirety of your argument. When God talked about making a woman a “help meet” in Gen. 2:18 he talked about that in the context of marriage. Feminism goes way beyond that. Quoting you in Proverbs 31:10- 31, “qualities of a virtuous woman” he didn’t mention the inequality of a woman to a man, in the verses 11, 23, 28 where he mentioned a man, he clearly stated “her husband”.
    God made the man “Head” only in the context of marriage, Eph. 5:23. In creation, God made man and woman equal in dignity and status, giving authority and dominion over both (Gen. 1:27-28). Male and Female only differentiated by divine act, yet equal in essence, nature, being, and authority.
    God didn’t make any mistakes Sir, that’s why even before him we are, regardless of gender all equal.
    Would you encourage your daughter to always play a second fiddle in her education, career, health, etc and be voiceless before her male counterparts and society? If No, then i don’t know what we have been talking about.

    A word is enough for the wise Sir. #SMILES

  3. I am a great support of equity and not a supporter of hardship labelled on girl child in the society but we should be careful on how we address the issues to youths.
    If we are not careful we will continue to have more of broken homes, baby mamas and single marriages in the society because submission to man as the head as the house would vanish. The young girls would see greater pleasure pursuing “freedom” in a blindfolded theme.

    In Africa we accept civilization in the wrong direction not minding our existing cultural values.

    My take actually.

  4. while I believe a man should respect a woman as much as he respects his fellow man, this assertion is also reciprocal. if true we are Gods own children, the bible makes us to believe that the woman is a help mate and in no way compared the duties and responsibilities of a woman to a man. while I also believe and see reason with all the points you have mentioned, they are all just an aspect of life which God saw and knows before he said the woman can only be a help mate. your equating equal rights between men and women is trying to tell God that he made a mistake by saying and telling us in his Great Book The Bible that a woman is a helpmate. look at proverbs 31: 10-31 and you will see the qualities of a virtues woman. that tells you that God in his infinite wisdom has defined the attributes of both the man and the woman. we should stop educating our youths on wrong ideas that collapse our moral values. in the time past going by what is happening today in our society on the level of moral decadence we always tend to refer to the past how things were far better off because our mothers saw that their responsibilities were to support their husbands and not to challenge them n equal rights and the society blossomed. today that the reverse is the case where women want to boss the men or remain on equal pedestal with them, you already know the kind of children we have these days and the level of moral decadence we have in the society. I remember when we were small, my mom used to be the person that always corrected us as such she beats us at any slightest rude action, but till today that am matured my dad never beat me but any day he raises his voice, I will not be myself for one week. the mere fact that my mom made us to see that our father was the KING was enough reason for us to correct ourselves even before being corrected by him. Please while feminism to some extent may be good, never forget that THE MAN IS THE KING BECAUSE THAT IS HOW HE WAS CREATED. Any attempt to change that scenario will result to socio-psychological societal decadence.

    a word is enough for the wise my beauty queen.
