As a Christian feminist I’m often unsettled by the sexist doctrine that is most often referred to as the Bible. I’ve been able to come to terms with it, but sometimes things(such as the first image) pop up on my Facebook and fill my body with feminist fury.
I’ve decided to make my own version of the image that I find much more accurate. The roles used above should be decided by the individual and discussed by couples. You can accept all, some, or none of the above roles, and it doesn’t reduce your value as a human being. Women are not under men’s umbrella in any way. They are equal to God and should be seen as equal to one another.
Women can be protectors and providers, just like men can be managers of the home and children. Both men and women can also be all of these things.
