If I were a white person, I would be a readhead, if I were food, I would be very hot curry (and I'm not just saying that because i had curry the other night!) and if i were an element,it would definately be fire. Ok, hear me out, i'm not just being vain here!
I have an opinion about pretty much everything that's out there. Most (or worst?) of all, I have no problem expressing it; I've never been any good at anything to do with silence, you see( though I've gotten better with age!). I'm learning every day that being vocal and having a pet peeve for arrogance are 2 of theee worst atributes to combine in one person (Exhibit A: yours trully); it makes for constantly... overheated conversations.
Now, having observed this about myself, I find that I am constantly in the presence of arrogant men. I'm talking about Christian men; men who expect to be put on some kind of pedistal because they are men; men who make it a point to correct you whenever you do something they believe is not conducive to what a Proverbs 31 woman should be (which, in my case, is everything I do!). I sound like a feminst, I know, but the thing is,I was raised by a woman. Though my mom is not a feminist, everything she and her children are today is as a result of her hard work and with no thanks whatsoever to any man, so it is no surprise that I was raised to go for what I want and not to expect it to be given to me by anyone (much less a man). I was raised to give a man (and anyone else for that matter) the respect that is due to him ( e.g men who are older than me and men who are in authority over me), but to never allow myself to be bullied by them.
Before you think this is some kind of male hate speech, let me say it like this. Your sex, gentlemen, is not something that is to be enforced on women. Men were created to provide for and protect their women and children and the reason why there are so many angry, rebelious, feminist women out there is because of your failure to be the men God created you to be. Yes, as a woman, I am to respect you and submit to you,but you in turn are to love,honour and protect me, not self- righteously point out all my faults in an arrogant attempt to shove me in your idea of the right direction.
Man of God, put your ego aside for just one day and treat a woman with gentleness and respect and see if you won't find that all the qualities of that Proverbs 31 woman you are so desperate for, will magically appear.
