First, let’s deal with and clarify term usage: Men expect female submission. Women expect to follow their natural submissive spirit.
- Major differences exist between the terms. Submission is energized by competitive intent. Submissiveness is energized by cooperative spirit.
- Women live by and foster submissiveness, when they like themselves as female, their man as mate, and their relationship for permanency. It helps capture a man, hold him, and prove that women don’t play the male game of submission.
- Submission is what men think they expect. This doesn’t mean they know what they want just because they expect it. It’s a manly argument that men use to win their point, to act and appear dominant, to defend their seemingly invaluable role as provider-protector. Submission sounds like and is used as a male weapon.
- Men expect female submission, because it stops challenges to his superior role as provider-protector. Women offer a submissive spirit, because it reduces competitive conflict and fosters cooperation. The terms are nowhere near the same, except when women forgo their superior position and advantage.
- Men anticipate filling the marital role and expect spouse’s submission to husband’s authority and dominance. After marriage, they aren’t nearly as demanding unless challenged by wife. If they don’t have to prove their worth, they’re much less inclined to seek or require submission.
- However, submission is more a game founded on intentions rather than real life. Women are foolish, if they accept submission as men claim it as privilege or natural right. The females’ best strategy: Ignore the subject, refuse to talk about it with men as it has the same effect as getting in their face. In the final analysis, submission isn’t relevant to her future life anyway, because her submissive spirit nullifies it.
Don’t for an instant presume that I’m contradicting the bible. I believe it whole-heartedly. I can’t help it that biblical injunctions call for women to be submissive to husband, and men convert it to their version, submission.
