The war on men and God-ordained patriarchy is pushing forward at break-neck speed. The advent of feminism in 1850 was radical then, but today, it seems to be logical. This war on men was only intellectual and economic. Then came the wave of feminists – both male and female feminists, who were bent on feminizing men. That degradation of men started in the 1960s. Then, you also have the physiologic feminizing of men using plastics.
Feminism and the War on Men and God-Ordained Patriarchy
Feminism started in 1850. Feminists fought for equality in education, labor, and the right to vote. If this is where they stopped, I'd have no problem with it, but they didn't stop. Give any person or group of people a concession, and their self-centered, radical nature will want more. So, men started losing jobs in labor sectors where women could compete. In other sectors, virtually no changes were made. Female-dominated sectors such as retail sales, food service, and home health care are some of the fastest-growing fields. The high-paying executive jobs that used to help men earn a living capable of supporting their entire family have been taken by women.
Women appear to have no idea how this affects men. Men have an innate need to serve and protect their families physically and economically. If men's ability to do this is stripped from them, they suffer and sometimes rebel. They either become an alpha male or give up and accept their feminization, which causes more problems than the alpha male syndrome. The feminization of working men causes demoralization, laziness, despair, and yes, even anger and the loss of their moral compass. Many feel so emasculated that they "sleep around" just to attempt to feel like a man. I obviously don't condone that behavior, but as a man, I understand the abhorrent behavior. Exodus 20:14, Matthew 15:19, Romans 1:28-32, Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:3, Colossians 3:5, Jude 1:7
Feminism has even tried to feminize God. They've even gone as far as re-writing the Bible with feminine or gender-neutral pronouns. God is male! He's male as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Our triune, thrice Holy God, is masculine. Scripture is unequivocal on this point.
The God-Ordained Patriarchy
God is masculine, male in gender. How can I say this with conviction? Jesus was male, and He is God the Son. He is God! The God that was walking in the garden in the cool of the day in Genesis 3:8. "They heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day," LORD refers to YHWH, the personal name of God pronounced Yahweh. Whether you call God Yahweh, Yeshua, or Jesus, He is still our one and only masculine God. He started the patriarchy with Adam. God made Adam first and put him to tending the garden of Eden. God put Adam to the task of naming every animal God created. "But for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." Genesis 2:20 According to Webster's Dictionary of 1828, MEET is an adjective meaning, "Fit; suitable; proper; qualified; convenient; adapted, as to a use or purpose." Adam needed a suitable helper, so God made Eve for Adam, not as a subordinate, but as a helper, equal in the sight of God.
God chose Abram to start the lineage of Israel. God chose Ishmael to begin the lineage of the Arabs. From a cursory reading of Biblical scripture, it is clear that God is masculine and places men in the leadership position and women as suitable helpers. Again, they are equal in the sight of God, equal in relationship as husband and wife, but given specific roles by God. Chaos ensues if these roles are ignored, usurped, bent, or destroyed. Currently, we, as a society, are reaping the chaos.
Fashion War on Men and God-Ordained Patriarchy
In the 1950s, working men wore suits or masculine work clothes. Today, you have grown men wearing dresses, long hair, earrings, and makeup. The change started in the 1960s, and this trend of feminizing men's apparel has continued. Now, I'm speaking of Western culture. I know different cultures have different types of apparel but have distinctive differences between men's and women's clothing.
I thank God for the hunting, fishing, and hard-working men who have kept men's apparel masculine. But so much of society wants to bend gender to the breaking point. The Bible is clear on this subject. Deuteronomy 22:5 says, "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God." Cross-dressing is an abomination (Extreme hatred; detestation, defilement, pollution, in a physical sense, or evil doctrines and practices, which are moral defilements, per the Webster's Dictionary of 1828.) Why do I use the 1828 dictionary, you might ask? Because people have been maliciously redefining words to correspond with their ideology.
Physiologic Feminization of Men from Plastics
The physiologic feminizing of men using plastics is the most insidious. The chemicals causing the problem are phthalates, which make plastics more pliable in water bottles, cosmetics, toys, baby-feeding bottles, and other products that molecularly leak phthalates into water and food. These phthalates were added to plastics starting in the 1920s and have exponentially increased in use. Today, these plastics are unavoidable because they are not only packaging our food but also infusing our food. Phthalates mimic the hormone estrogen. Estrogen is a sex hormone responsible for developing and regulating the female reproductive system and feminine physical characteristics.
Men who are exposed to excessive estrogen or estrogen-like chemicals like phthalates develop mild feminine characteristics. The symptoms include decreased production of testosterone, drop in libido, enlargement of breast tissue (gynecomastia), erectile dysfunction, infertility, depression, delayed puberty, short stature, dry and thinning skin, and emotional changes.
So, avoid plastic, especially pliable plastics, in containers like water bottles. Never drink or eat anything heated in plastic. That includes drinking water or soda sitting in your hot car or in direct sunlight. Heat increases the leaking of phthalates from the plastics and gives you a larger dose of the estrogen-like molecules. But even cold plastics leak some of these molecules.
War on Men and God-Ordained Patriarchy
I hate to say this, but men are just about doomed. Between feminism, demoralization, feminization, and plastics, we have an uphill battle. A battle that Satan has been waging against us since the beginning. Satan went to Eve first, disrupting the God-ordained patriarchal leadership. Eve accommodated Satan by giving the fruit to Adam to eat, and he, in direct violation of God's only law, ate the forbidden fruit. And no, the fruit was not metaphorical. It was a physical test of Adam's obedience. Only one law and a clear delineation of hierarchy as defined by God, and Adam failed. He failed God and all of us. The battle has been waging since that point in time and keeps getting worse.
Men must be men! We must think as men, act as men, protect our families like men, earn a living like men, dress as men, love our wives as God loves the church, cherish our families, and train our children to know and understand God's plan for men and women. Men are to be the high priests of their home, teaching their family Biblical scripture, principles, doctrine, and theology. It wouldn't hurt to avoid plastics, too. But men must be men, as ordained and established by our Almighty God, Savior, and LORD, Jesus.
