Oh, how paternalistic and condescending.
I'm reminded of an account of a British Missionary's reference to the Black Africans he encountered. He referred to them as "Noble and Elegant Beasts."
Your rationale for your sexism leaves me with the same taste in my mouth.
How I view and treat women is irrelevant to your interpretation. Your insecurity or hedonistic desires is what apparently make you see my statement as condescending. If I exalt and praise God, am I being condensing to God? Your statement is only indication that YOU don't believe that women are of superior design and purpose, hence, you can't believe that I believe such, which leads to you "projecting" that I am being condescending.
The people that I love and or respect the most in my life are all females. Because I have a great deal of respect for women and high set of expectations for women, makes me a sexist? What kind of twisted world do you people reside in? High expectations are only placed upon those whom one is confident in their abilities. Low expectations are reserved for those who are seen as inferior. The fact that I place high expectation upon women is a praise of women, not a condemnation or disrespect.
It is sad that so many of you are going to such length to rationalize the acceptance of women becoming just as immoral as men. It's not an argument that men are amoral, hedonistic and much more...however, why do women need to follow men off this cliff? It is because you see sin as a pleasure and are jealous that you are not getting to enjoy the pleasures of sin to the same degree as men. Thus, you are making the devils argument by rationalizing why women should have the equality of sin. Are you sure that is what you want?
