“The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me. And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?” Mila Kunis
Researching her history she grew up in the Soviet Union where anti-Semitism pushed her parents to leave. Her words read like someone who came from a foreign country only to make millions in the very nation she is slamming.
My involvement with the feminist movement was graduating from college with absolutely no training to be thrown into a working world where most women had never gone before.
Prior to that time, it wasn’t expected. The generation before mine was not grilled with questions like, “what are you going to do when you graduate?” or “do you have a job yet?”
We women are very capable of a lot of things, but right now the number of single, Caucasian mothers living below the poverty level is around 24%. That figure has risen by 15% since 2001. Between 38 and 45% of multiracial children live in poverty.
Having been a single mother for 12 years it is by God’s grace both of us survived it.
So what does the poverty rate have to do with being liberated?
What is the liberated/feminist woman?
The secular definition is being set free of anything that women find oppressive. It is freedom from sexual attitudes that men are superior to women. The stance is to gain full, social and political rights for equality for women.
The idea that all women should be working outside of the home has been
overdone, overrated and a detriment to many who never asked for it.
The hardest job on earth is that of the mother. God knew raising children would be difficult which is why he gave them 2 parents. The single parent is often alone, exhausted and broke. The feminist movement has not changed the pay scale between men and women. It has laid a guilt trip on many females who choose to be a mother at home instead of bringing half cooked bacon into a messy house. But the single mother has no choice. She must be bread winner and 2 parents all the time.
The system is broke. The family has fallen apart. And many are suffering.
Feminist have pushed the belief we women are suppose to do it all; be everything and everywhere all the time. The expectation is no different for the single parent. Somehow understanding the huge strain of one parent having to be two parents hasn’t sunk into the thick heads of society.
I can tell you from experience. It is not possible without a lot of help and God. Single parenting is a 24/7 job. If I am not mistaken even Jesus needed to get away and rest. So why should we be any different? Breaks for rest or peace of mind when parenting do not exist.
Blaming the feminist movement is not my point here, but the demand to be politically correct parents or single parents is not Biblical.
So….how do women become liberated Christians? Or is that possible?
