For some reason today it seems acceptable to use the female, feminization, feminist, etc as a derogatory term, and yet its pretty acceptable to also state that women are: equal in dignity, value, essence and human nature...
Why does this sense to people? Do we show the equality in dignity, value and essence of women when we use feminine words to describe what is wrong with the world? Its used in a derogatory way, and yet we are accept that we are seen with dignity, value and essence. This should not be.
We heard about 'gender confusion', but the way they describe it at times? It sounds like Androgyny. To the secular world gender confusion would mean more about sexual orientation. Androgyny in very simplistic terms is: a person who does not fit cleanly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society.
The truth is there are times that people don't cleanly fit into what society says is strict gender roles. Lets take a man that can be sensitive at times. According to today's theories that is because they got 'chick a fied' (Driscoll). From what I see they take the term sensitive, and overuse the characteristics of that word into what seems a 'drama fied' presentation of their own justification instead.
The sensitive man represents a cultural attempt, then, to correct John Wayne masculinity. Where his father or grandfather never wept, never talked much, never said "I love you", the sensitive male weeps readily, chatters away, and reassures anyone within earshot of his love. In seeking an emotionally alive masculinity the sensitive man seems to have sped past "properly balanced emotional life" and landed in the once-foreign land of "traditionally feminine ways of speaking and feeling". CBMWThen to make sure they don't want to tell you being 'sensitive' isn't all together WRONG:
Men of the Bible are by no means silent or unemotional. The father of the prodigal son, for example, weeps openly and deservedly when his son returns home (see Luke 15:11-32). Christ Himself wept when He heard of Lazarus's death (John 11:35). Christ was compassionate, tender, gentle, and merciful throughout the course of His ministry. So we ought to be a balance of strength and gentleness, not either/or. CBMW
I know I don't see myself like that, so am I 'dude a fied'? Did I buy into the masculinist movement? Is that a masculinization of females? Do I have a masculinized female temperament? OH I KNOW I'LL BE - MACHO FIED! That sounds so much better doesn't it?
Although that might sound derogatory...
Most parents would tell their children NOT to tell their male friend that he throws like a girl. How it will hurt their feelings, and because its cruel. We all know how it is used, and what it means to a boy to be told this. We see it used all the time, and yet as a woman I'm not to feel 'less than' because females traits are being used as a cut down.
It would make about as much sense if they choose to pick on Red hair. Red Hair is awesome, Red hair is honorable....Add in all their superficial praises here. Then use the red hair as a derogatory cut down to another person, because its 'culturally cool'. THEN turn around and tell the person they love next to them with red hair, and repeat the mandra: Red hair is honorable, Red hair is awesome....
Those rules about calling a male a female seem to have changed ONCE you become an adult. I wonder how they explain that to their children? I mean now it is totally acceptable to tell them they are acting like a female. What seems confusing is God honors females, but its okay to use culturally 'female' traits to attack men. Yet, that isn't because they don't honor females. Why does that make sense?
Their Conclusion: We need to realize women are equal in worth, dignity, etc but SON we do need to use the 'feminine' characteristics to show the world WHAT is wrong with these men! THEY act like all a bunch of WOMEN!
For some reason its okay to use those derogatory terms to hurt the feelings of men, and at the same time show women by the use of such derogatory female terms also means no disrespect to women.
In the end? There really should be no confusion!
Seriously? I personally feel its insulting.
