I was reading another question here and some of the responses said that man is above woman because woman is the weaker sex. Well, I want to know in what way is this true? Physically? I've seen pleanty of women who are stronger than men. Mentally? Again, I've seen pleanty of women who are smarter and more knowledgeable than men. Sexually? Why is then that MEN rape, cheat, molest and get addicted to porn more often than women do then? Seems like sexully, THEY are weaker because they let their wee wee's lead them and not their common sense.
Do Christians think this only because you've been taught Eve was made from Adam and is second best? Because she was tempted first (Adam was tempted by Eve and gave in). Because PAUL said so?
I heard it analogised this way once and I have always loved it... A woman is weaker in comparison to a man the way a crystal vase is to a cheap glass one. The work weaker has no bearing on strength or worth by this use. Simply put it means precious or fine... Fine China or Crystal are not things that you are rough with. You care for them, you cherish them and you are gentile with them... However they are much greater in value than the ones you see as "strong" and "useful." It wasn't meant to say that they were LESS, but just the opposite! It is only the translations that came later by male dominant rulers and Churches that spun the meaning of the word (in this use) to mean that women were LESS.
