For those of you who cannot/won't click on it, it's about a guy who asked me, out of the blue one day, why it is that women want to work or seek employment. Before I could really answer, since I was so confused as to why someone today would pose such a question, he suggested that it is because women want to work underneath a man, or be controlled by a man.
We later struck the same subject again, and he said that he was speaking of it in a professional setting, though in my opinion it doesn't matter which setting he is referring to. I then argued with him because it made me furious,the fact that such a question even appeared in his brain in the first place.
He then asked me if I truly believe the Bible. I said that I believe in God.
He then brought up Genesis, and said that God created woman in man's image, and brought up examples of women's servitude.
He then told me that his belief shouldn't bother me because if I were truly a Christian, and believed in God, I would know that his opinions are true.
So my question to you is, from a Christian's viewpoint, what do you make of this situation? Because according to his views, it seems as if the whole feminist movement, from Woolfe to Adrienne Rich to so many others was incorrect and "sinful."
What do you think about this man's assertions about women in the workplace? Do passages in Genesis really support his views, or are there other scriptures that shed light on this subject?
