Of course we are all blind to our blind spots-- but some of us say, "I know I have blind spots. Teach me." And others say, "I have no blind spots; I see clearly." Jesus said that it was the second group whose guilt would remain.
men who think all women are the same or should be the same probably wouldn't be very accepting of any women who deviated from their ideal of the perfect woman.
Yes, that's the double whammy of complementarianism: that it's impossible to refute using the evidence of real women's experience. If a woman is quiet, gentle, docile, and submissive-- it's because it's "natural" for women to be that way. If a woman is assertive, extroverted, leadership-oriented-- it's because of her sin nature that is fighting against her true nature. In any event, one kind of personality is honored and the other rejected and silenced, because they have decided in advance what kind of women God is allowed to make.
