A WOMAN’S PLACE

President Biden said that there is nothing a man can do that a woman cannot do “as well or better.”  That’s hogwash and would be a lie if it were said by President Trump.

I’m agreeing with the general idea that women can do many things their role in society prevented in times past. So let them compete for what has traditionally been jobs for men. But do NOT lower or ease the standards required for the job in order to allow women to do them.

President Biden’s statement is definitely not true. There are many physical kinds of things men can do that women cannot do as well. That’s one reason we need to maintain women’s sports without competition from men or transsexuals.

I like the picture above of the roles that women play. Obviously it is from an old magazine. I had the picture in a frame on the wall a long time. What does the picture say to you? This is what it says to me. Woman can perform in many careers, but no matter what they do, the role they have as homemaker is the most important! But to some of you, it just represents serving others.

I remind you of Mark 9:35:

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

Homemaking, particularly with children, is a classic and classy job.

This brings me to tell what women are better at than men. Women can multitask! They quickly drop the spoon and turn down the fire when they hear a husband or child call for help. A man finds it easy to ignore you, or point a shush finger to let you know they are on the phone – “for goodness sake, can’t you see that? You want me to just stop this and come see about that malfunctioning toilet seat.” But then I guess women can also fix malfunctioning toilet seats.

I was a career woman. I can’t imagine not punching a clock for a living. But I lost much – I was never a home room mother nor did I volunteer on fund raisers for the disabled. Many other worthy things I could have done if I had been a housekeeper.

But we are living in a time when it is very nice for a woman. She can be a Goldie Meir or a Margaret Thatcher. No one had to lower standards for them!

She can even be President of USA – not because she is qualified but because she is First.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. To the women who turn up their noses at the thought of serving, I’d like to share a couple of lines from my song, “Servant’s Heart”:
    When my man is tired, I rub his back and make him tea.
    (The Son of God washed feet, so I’m in good Company.” 😉

      Excellent! Where can I find the rest of the lyrics. I don’t hear words well to music videos. Or I like the videos if they also have words. Thanks for your response.

    Thank you Oneta. Personally I believe the Greatest Calling ordained by God Himself was to Be a Helpmate……..From the beginning. A MOTHER – A Wife – A nurturer and a care-giver. A HOME-Maker and the Guide in gentle ways like prayer and bedtime stories., I grew up when this was seen as a women’s GREATEST Callings. Wartime and the pursuit of worldly financial approval have destroyed much. Even sadly the destruction of what was once acknowledged as the HUNTER GATHER and protective role of a masculine and stronger male in strength naturally but also in courage and care. Masculinity has been descimated by cultural and this too is tragic. Your blogs ARE provoking. Thanks again.

      Thank for the confirmation and more commentary. We have a lot in common, don’t we? Great harm came to our descendants when women began having (or choosing) to work at the expense of their families. We could debate the cause but the stats will certainly show the harm that has come to children.

  3. You have gotten this one spot on Oneta. I have no desire to be a man and do everything a man can do. My logic is that when we think we need to be equal to men in everything we lessen our value as unique women…created differently than men and for different roles than men. Why in the world do we all want to be cookie cutter people? In a world that says we must celebrate diversity they have strangely decided that on this topic there should be no diversity or difference between men and women. Big sigh…..praying God straightens up this messed up world sooner as later….or that He comes quickly.
