Abuse? Gaslighting? Both! Male and female should be celebrated

It came as a surprise to me that Pelosi decided to remove gender related terms from the house.  It is now forbidden to use terms as mother, father, uncle, daughter in law, or anything else that hints at what gender someone might be. 

This is complete insanity, and feels evil. God created us, his precious children, as male and as female.  There are numerous references in the Bible to this point.  Here is just one:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Genesis 1:27

Masculinity and femininity are beautiful, different, and should be celebrated!  It is so wonderful to be feminine.  I love the differences in the way I look, and in the things my body can do, like giving birth and feeding a baby. I like the way I think about things and respond to situations. I enjoy when a man holds a door for me, or pulls my chair out for me, and I can thank him for being a gentleman. I like to nurture my family and take care of my husband. The list goes on and on.

I desire and crave masculinity to balance me.  It is wildly attractive to me.  I sought that sort of personality in my past, and ended up in abusive relationships.  Two of them.  It is embarrassing to admit I fell for it twice, but there it is.  Masculinity does not automatically equal abusive though.  The two major differences between my past, and my husband are character, and being a Christian.

I now have found a protective, strong, Godly, intelligent, wise, and masculine husband.  I look around at people now, and wonder how my two young girls will ever find such a husband for themselves among all the genderless, wimpy, social justice warrior, pronoun choosing, fluid people.  My husband and I already pray for those little boys, who are probably already born somewhere, that our girls will grow up to marry.  We pray for their upbringing, and for their parents.

There are so many things I cannot do as a woman that my husband helps me with.  There are also many things that my husband cannot do without my help.  We are two parts of a whole.  We are helpers to one another.  We are a team.  We are one. 

Speaking of my past relationship leads me to remember how mentally abusive it was, and it was forging ahead to becoming physical abuse.  This was evident to me when he had begun throwing items at me in anger.  This will be a blog for another time, but I wanted to point out that the way the “left” is treating the “right,” the way Democrats are treating Republicans, the way Liberals are treating Conservatives feels exactly like an emotionally abusive relationship.  I have been telling my husband this for some time, and I consider myself an expert on that topic.

Take a look at this graphic. Do you see any connections that can be made to our current social climate? Of course, there will be differences because this wheel is about relationships. But there are many parallels I can draw at a glance.

We are being gaslighted, repeatedly. If you aren’t sure what ‘gaslighting’ is, I would encourage you to look it up.  I will link an article here if you are interested. 

What is Gaslighting?

It is so important we remember that God created us, with ALL of our differences, because we need one another. We are beautifully made, each individual one of us.  Some are male and some are female.  Any attempt to cancel that fact is abusive and goes against God.
