There is a lot more to women’s choosing beyond use of contraceptives and abortion.
Women ultimately decide who are the “alpha males” — those who will be allowed to have a genetic future.
Also, society is in the process of making a huge eugenics experiment. Those men who are prone to making violent mistakes and who are now in prison have been removed from the gene pool. Maybe this is what women were trying to accomplish in former times with the “sacrifice of the king.” Young males who were uncontrollable were told they were being singularly honored to be giving their blood for Her and of course for the welfare of the whole city . . . ??
Unfortunately, the genocide of women (killing of supposed witches) by the males in power in Christendom may have resulted in the female survivors tending to be docile and self-effacing women — another experiment in eugenics.
Eph 5:22-23 (NIV): “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands . . . For the husband is the head of the wife . . .”
Do men tend to choose for mates, those women who are wimpy doormats, thus ensuring the continuance of this trait among women? Do men read in the Bible, “women be submissive to your husbands,” and assume that a submissive lass is what they are entitled to, per the word of God? They would rather have a submissive woman than an actual relationship with a woman?
The culture tells men they should not be wimpy – that would be ‘effeminate’ – so men generally strive to be something other than wimpy.
1 Co 14:34 (NIV): “Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission”
Fortunately, women’s liberation came along, so we see fewer and fewer women who are culturally conditioned to think they are obligated to maintain silence in public and gaze with a goofy, adoring look upon their husbands, while clinging to his arm as if unable to stand without his aid, and maybe such women cannot stand with ease if in the habit of wearing supposedly “sexy” spike heels.
1 Tim 2:12-13 (NIV): “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve.”
Oh silly me (giggling and smiling sweetly – I’d be twirling my long tresses if I had any) — of course I have no idea if traits such as being wimpy or violent are the result of conditioning or can be passed along genetically, and I’ll just wait submissively for some expert – a man of course – to tell me if I am permitted to have any opinions.
After all, ‘Adam was formed first.’ Seems like a good argument to me.
