I don’t know much about Feminism. I am, however learning about Complementarianism. I want to know if those two are related, and whether they complement or clash with each other.
From a biblical standpoint.
Please no controversy. I’m here to learn. Will somebody explain this to me?
Also, please don’t message me. Just reblog this and explain it. Please.
I’m not an expert or anything, but this is my opinion/thought. I don’t think they clash at all, although sometimes feminism becomes female supremacy, but that’s not what most feminists actually want. A woman can be a feminist while also being a stay-at-home mom who cooks and cleans and has a husband who is the breadwinner and all of that. The point is that she can also choose to be a breadwinner herself or whatever else she wants. As a Catholic, I certainly know about the different roles given to men and women. Women and men can both choose to be whatever they want within their faith. That is, if a woman wants to be a leader, she can be, but it is going to be a different type of leader than a man. That doesn’t mean her role is less significant or important, just different. The Bible is pretty clear that a woman is supposed to be obedient to a man, but the word obedient definitely doesn’t mean what it commonly means now. It’s not about doing what you’re told in a sit-down-and-shut-up sort of way, it’s about men having a role and women having a different role. It’s also about men having the role that includes not suppressing a woman just because of that ‘obedience’ she has. Sometime people tend to think that the Bible is hard on women because of statements like that, but I think it’s much harder on men. I mean, the Bible literally holds men responsible for the spiritual well-beings of their wives. Women aren’t held responsible for the spiritual well-being of their husbands, though. Maybe a more radical feminist might have a different opinion than I do because I hardly even call myself a feminist (just someone who appreciates human decency), but that’s what I came up with!
