A Workforce Without Men

From Lori Alexander at The Transformed Wife:

A day, no years, without women in the workforce wouldn’t change a thing. Women think they’re invincible in the workforce but they aren’t. Men can easily and often better replace every single job that a woman has in the workforce. Our military would be stronger without women. Our police force would be stronger. Women make these institutions weaker and now we have these “sexual” problems in the military. Duh! This happens when we mix males and females in close quarters for months on ends and far away from home.

She goes on to show that society cannot survive without men in the workforce, and without women in the homes. Alexander goes on to write:

God has given men clearly defined roles and He has given women clearly defined roles and when they stop doing what they are supposed to be doing cultures die a slow, agonizing death. Go home, women. Tend to your husband, children, and homes. Make them sanctuaries of peace, warmth, and affection for your families. This is the greatest work that you can do because it was given to you by the Creator of everything.

    Rather like the blog for international women’s day this is only about married women, with children. Not only does this ignore single women, widows, etc, does it not also make more sense for civil laws, for example, to be created by both genders, and there are jobs that women obviously may be better at than men! From a biblical perspective it also assumes that everyone’s calling is to marriage and families, and this is demonstrably wrong! 1 Corinthians 7:8, for example, is a key text on singleness, and the idea that women should be doing housework is challenged by the story of Mary and Martha!

    1. Chris, from a biblical perspective, it was and is assumed that women would marry and have children. The idea that they would have remained single was unheard of and shows just how much feminism has infiltrated the church.

      Yes, Paul was speaking to the issue of singleness, for those called to that. This was the exception to the norm, not the norm, as it is today.

      As far as your reference of Mary and Martha, that misses the point. The one was not condemned for doing housework. That would be reading a lot into the text. She was criticized because she had a rare opportunity to sit at Christ’s feet, and she was missing it. Women today do not have that opportunity. It’s really quite dubious to take that passage and use it in a way that condemns a woman’s work in the home.

    In which case I would expect you to write about the calling to singleness in one of your posting, and not simply make an assumption that what is the ‘norm’ is for all! On a practical note do you do any housework, cooking etc? I don’t do the ironing as I am hopeless at it, but i will do the cooking because I enjoy it. Is that wrong in your world view? (and yes i do believe we can commit to spending time with Christ today and not simply do the housework!)

    1. Chris, I was single until I got married at the age of 42. But alas, I don’t think singleness should be treated as a separate class of Christians, a sub class. If you are single, serve the LORD. If you are married, serve the LORD. Quit trying to divide the body into sub-groups. Christ has redeemed a body to Himself, not a bunch of sub-groups connected by some shallow alignment.
