As I lurk here and there on the internet, I occasionally run into those gems of insight that encapsulate my views exactly. Behold the words of one Boxer:
My read of the bible doesn’t strictly say that women are second class. They’re just different. They have different strengths and a different role. Humans were built to pair bond for life, and run around as a team. We’re best when we follow nature’s dictates, and let men lift heavy weights, and women have babies. All sane people, religious or not, recognize such simple facts. Only feminists are so stupid as to declare us similar.
And so it is.
