A man commenting on Feminism, Patriarchy, and trying to reconcile the two.

I’m Posting a disclaimer right off the bat- I am a MAN. I am not claiming to know what it’s like to be a woman, nor trying to tell women anything about themselves, or trying to educate them on feminism. I myself am learning about it as I go, having been introduced to it by my oldest sister. I have had many discussions with her about it, and am in the midst of my own research. My purpose here is not to disparage feminism, and it is not to glorify patriarchy. I have the utmost respect for women, as well as the priesthood. I don’t hold myself above women because I am a priesthood holder. I hold the firm belief that men and women are equal, but not the same. Nor should they be. We are different, and that is the way God intended it. So the purpose of this Blog is to talk about both feminism and patriarchy, and study how they might be reconciled within the framework of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Both can exist within the Gospel of Jesus Christ and even build on each other, but both also can be twisted and become something evil. I’m hoping to generate a discussion between men and women so that we can understand each other, and hopefully move toward more equality between men and women.

    It’s a good journey to be on Tayler. There is much to be learned. “And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith.” I think this subject is particularly relevant in this day and age.
