This post was inspired by a blog post titled”My Coming Out Of The Closet #secrets” by ofili of ofilispeaks.com.
Ofili reveals the little secret that he was hiding for years. According to him, he is a male feminist. That seems not much a secret to me, I wrote in the comment session and went further to
hastily mistakenly state
that I am a feminist too.
Okay I have not said its bad to be a feminist o but I think of myself more of a modern man than being a feminist. The philosophy behind feminism is all about the rights of women all over the world. This entails right to vote, right to hold political offices, right to equal employment opportunities, equal right with their husbands, infact plus any other rights their male counterparts enjoys.
To me the feminist idea is uncalled for and may spur an overbearing attitudes in some women especially the enlightened ones. As a matter of fact, the idea has eaten deep into most women and I confess that I have seen couples at logger head because the wife thinks washing of dishes, cloths, cooking of food should be ration. As Christians women, sticking to this ideas is not good because its disobeys the sacred law of submissiveness in the bible.
As a modern man, I won’t have any problem with a woman being my boss in the office (even if she happens to be my spouse) or the president of my country but I will not tolerate my wife being the boss of the house(it disobey the divine arrangement made by God of man being the head of the home).
As a modern man, I love to see the female forks compete equally for positions with their male counterpart without fear or intimidation. The thing most women do that makes my head spine is appearing weak when seeking for positions. They want the male folks to hand it to them like a platter of Gold. Some of them will give sex to get what they want (this is called appearing weak).
As a modern man, I will not shy away from my financial responsibility towards my spouse but I would love to see the female folks take responsibility financially. It somewhat funny seeing women clamoring for all this feminist right but will push their spouse forward when it comes to paying the bills.
Like my title reads, this is my two cent opinion on feminism. Cheers.
