watching Lord of the Rings : )
I can’t believe there’s literally people even against non-radical feminism. Like: “Women? Wanting the rights to their own body? To feel empowered and love themselves? To be seen as equal to MEN? To BE RESPECTED??? NO I AM TOTALLY AGAINST THIS THING”
Oh dear, I’m going to regret this, but here I go. This is my blog and I’ll have my feelings on it. Please don’g kill me.
All those things you have just mentioned in feminism, I totally agree with. I am all for women loving their bodies and owning them. I fully support women being equal to men and being respected. Here is where I disagree.
I do not believe that to be equal we must be the same. Call it my religion, but here we go.
Women and Men were created to be equal. They cannot exist without each other. Truly, they are made to work together in harmony. Anyone who believes that women are beneath men has no concept of God and of the whole creation.
Which makes me so wonderfully grateful to be a member of the LDS church because I have never been in a more women empowering religion.
Women have power. We have more power than we can possibly know. We are absolutely made to be equal with men, to rule beside them in the eternities. We just have a different role in society than men, but that doesn’t make us any less equal to them.
A good man, who knows the role of a woman, who knows the reason for women, would respect her with the most respect he can muster because he will know that a woman created him and that a woman will create his children.
That is why I don’t consider myself a feminist. It seems feminism is all about being the same as men, and I don’t believe that is what we were made to do.
So tonight ended up being really fun even though I wasn’t as productive in my school work as I wanted to be
my roommates and I went to Wendy’s for dinner and then we planned out dinners for the rest of the semester. And then we went to the store and bought all the stuff for it. I am stoked : )
It also reminded me how close I am to coming home!
Sometimes I forget how long it’s been since Lord of the Rings.
Then The Hobbit premieres happen and I just…
After buying a Frosty my change was 42 cents. I think it’s a sign…or something :)
ugh. I don’t know what to have for dinner.
