The Gender Wars

There has a been a long-fought war to dabble in social experiments and redefine gender roles.  It did not start in my generation nor in the previous but has been waged for centuries, even millenia.  We are not enlightened, civilized, or progressive in pursuing this as a society.  Those who are spiritual recognize and call it what it is—sin and degradation.

Woman was not made for this, O man, to be prostituted as common.  O you subverters of all decency, who use men, as if they were women, and lead out women to war, as if they were men!  This is the work of the devil, to subvert and confound all things, to leap over the boundaries that have been appointed from the beginning, and remove those which God has set to nature.  For God assigned to woman the care of the house only, to man the conduct of public affairs.  But you reduce the head to the feet, and raise the feet to the head.  You suffer women to bear arms, and are not ashamed.  But why do I mention these things?  They introduce on the stage a woman that murders her own children, nor are they ashamed to stuff the ears of men with such abominable stories.

John Chrysostom, Homily V on Titus (2:11-14)
