So yes, totally, the level of civilization is in direct correlation with the level of woman just not how we'd like to imagine it. (Not how the article illustrates the positive roles of women in the Church.)
Exactly. Women have lowered themselves to the worst of "men's standards" and have lowered the value of their work in the home and the raising of children. They have lowered the value of the privilege of having sex with them (their greatest bargaining tool).
Although, I really hated having to be my husband's conscience a lot of the time, as did my friends with their husbands. The areas in which their parents and society didn't raise them were left for us to do the hard work. It's no fun being a kill-joy or "prude", but if women don't set boundaries we are subjected to crude and degrading behavior. Of course, men don't like to be corrected. So it's a no win situation most of the time. :/
And Christian men don't call each other to accountability very well. They tend to pat each other on the back and see themselves as better than most all of the other men out there. While Christian women tend to be scrupulous and practice a holier than thou attitude.
