This bible study is about Ester and why it can be tough being a woman.
I have to admit, I love everything about being a woman, and wonder what this study will teach me. In fact, the only benefit to being a man that I can think of is that they can pee standing up. Well, that and they don't deal with the ups and downs of hormones. Then of course what comes along with those hormones. It would be nice to forgo all of that. Oh yes, and then having to deal with the drama other women stir up. Men are generally easier to work with. (I say generally, not a rule.) Then I hear child birth is painful and pregnancy is annoying. Actually come to think of it, maybe there are more benefits to being a man than I thought.
- You get to be a mother. There is a different bond that children have to a mother than to a father. I am so thankful for that bond.
- We are the weaker sex... physically I mean... We cannot naturally lift as much as men. I put this as a positive, because if you are fortunate enough to have a man who recognizes this, then you have someone who will carry in the forty pound bag of pellets for your woodstove.
- You get to be a daughter. There is something special about being a daughter as opposed to be a son. Not that being a son isn't great, but I've never experienced it. I do know daughters generally talk more to their moms and are often doted on by their dads. Generally, I know there are exceptions
- You get to wear pretty dresses. Yes, men can wear dresses too, but its just not the same. I love that I can wear make-up, put on a cute dress, and do my hair.
- There is less judgment in the present time against women who choose male-gendered roles than men who choose roles typically thought to be for females. This has not always been true, but our country has come a long way.
