Extreme Feminism... And Comfy Shawls!

Monday, January 23, 2017

Many call me a hipster.  I have never actually labeled myself as one, but in a way I can call myself one.  First off let me give you the definition.
hipster: a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream. 
The end of that definition is my main thought when I think of the word, "hipster."  I certainly don't do the normal compared to a majority of my generation I would say.  I have a fashion sense that can be very out there sometimes (while always being modest), I don't use vulgar language, I am kind of artsy-fartsy, I live out my faith very openly, and some even call me old-fashioned or look at me odd when I tell them that I am saving my first kiss for the day I get married.  I think being a hipster means you break the chain, to do what you want to do, and you do it without care of the judgment you may get from others.  With this kind of definition one hipster can be very different from another.  For example a hipster like me is VERY different from a hipster that wears crop tops, listens to bands singing about drugs, and sporting around dreads liked they were born with them.  
See? Some may call me a hipster, but I am not a typical hipster.  I am a Christian Hipster if that's a thing, .  
This leads me into what I want to talk about.  
Did you hear that? I am NOT a feminist.  Before you exit my page, and never turn back let me explain myself.  I believe we deserve the right to vote, have equal pay, and make our choices.  My reasons are based completely off God's word, so if you aren't a Christian you probably won't see eye to eye with me.  That's okay though.  If you have any questions feel free to email me(:
So let's get started. .
Some feminists say they don't need men or anyone else to succeed.  Where does God fit into that?  We all NEED God.

Ephesians 5:22 tells us to submit to our husbands as we do to the Lord.  I may not be married, but this is a huge thing that should convict us women.  Many people like to be in control, but we as women are to submit to our husbands.  

Ephesians 5: 22- 33
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body.31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
So you see? I do not believe a woman should be mistreated, abused, and raped, but rather that men are to love their wives.  Not only are we to love them as well, but show them respect as well.  Does that mean you should never get in a argument? No.  That's impossible.  People can't agree with everyone on everything, but in the end the decisions should be made by the husband.  Our place is in the home, taking care of our families, and taking care of the home.  Do I believe women that work are evil? No, hahaha!!! Do I believe men are greater than women? NO! In fact God says we are all equal in Galatians 3:28.
Galatians 3:28
28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
God talks in the Bible that, yes, we are equal, but men and women have different roles.  Men can do things women can't and women and do things men can (such as bearing child).  A man is meant to lead, the woman is meant to submit.  
I know many may disagree, and that is okay.  Today is a day in age where people are encouraged to express their opinions, and then when they do they are put down for it.  Put me down, persecute me, tell me I am wrong, and question me if you feel the need to.  I actually encourage you to ask questions if you don't believe what I believe!  I may not have an answer for everything, but I am open to them(:  
Here are a few more verses from scripture that are the reasons of what I believe.
1 Peter 3:1-4 
 3 Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won overwithout words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self,the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
Titus 2:4-5 
Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
1 Timothy 2: 12-14
12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[a] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
1 Corinthians 11: 3
But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
