Biblical Femininity

Femininity! What is the definition of this word that our modern day world has turned aside?

"Femininity (also called womanliness) refers to qualities and behaviors judged by a particular culture to be ideally associated with or especially appropriate to women and girls"

This is the definition of femininity. What does our world say femininity is? Well, our culture has decided that being feminine is well, weird! That a woman should have the same strength and power of a man. I disagree. We, as female's, don't have the strength that a male has. For example: We don't have the strength to pick up a 50-80 pound box, when a man does. It's just the way God created us differently. A female can do things around the house that a male can't do, such as, organization skills. So, do I believe that male's and female's are created equally, no.
Though females aren't as strong as male's doesn't mean they are too delicate to work.

God designed male and female in his image! Let's not destroy what he created us to be.

Ahem. Do be careful of being specific with what women can lift. I can carry (on my back) over 200 lbs, and lift 100 with my arms. =D

You're right- Women should be feminine. I think what you're trying to say is that women are nurturers while men are protectors.

But I agree with Ophelia's point. And what if we don't have very good organization skills either? Or at least I don't... = )

PS- my sister (above) says she regrets her comment and wishes you to know that she has nothing to "prove."

But she is reaaally strong. And I think 80 lb boxes are good with me, too.
