Biblical Equality Discussion / Re: Women in modern-day Israel

Sad to read. Most Israelis I have met are nothing like this at all. But it appears fundamentalism of all stripes is dangerous to women

Just wrote one rebutting the idea that men need respect more than love and women need love more than respect.  http://krwordgazer.blogspot.com/2014/09/men-need-respect-women-need-love-really.html

You mention good characterization in the Firefly series. Avatar also has great characters.

I've never been into a cartoon series, but I've never given one much of a chance before.  Interesting....

Don, sometimes it is all just so very frustrating.  it is so carnal, earthly minded.

FF, 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.
Men looking for the perfect woman are oftenvery abusive partners, regardless of if they are comp or egal.

they do a pretty good job analyzing and refuting the illogic's of complementarity.

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.

Of course, we are all blind to our own blind spots, hence the name.  Which is why it is important to not go solo.

I was debating Alistair at some point this summer but I don't remember where. He's extremely closed minded and doesn't begin to see his own blindness.

Agree.  It is the "macho male" syndrome.  Patri-comps make the mistake of claiming that all men must be alike and all women must be alike.  It is basically "stupid thinking", without logic.
I echo your post TL.

I wonder what the comp worldview does with women who are extremely extroverted? Just a thought.
