How NOT to Make a Contribution to the World  

Posted by The Glo-ness in

So it seems like much of feminism’s talk about women making an important “contribution to society” is based on the following line of reasoning:

Women must do important work.

Work men do is important.

Therefore, women must do men’s work.


So let’s break this down a little, starting with the first premise:

“Women must do important work.”

Yes, I agree with the feminist position here: women MUST do important work. Every woman was created by God to accomplish some part of His plan for society. However, unlike the feminists, I do not define this “contribution to society” as “anything usually done by men.” I think the main (notice I said “main”, not “full”) contribution to society God is looking for from women is through creating a happy home atmosphere, and raising responsible, mature sons and daughters. Society is made up of human beings, and in order to have a well-adjusted, pleasant society to live in, we need firstly well-adjusted, pleasant people. Good mothers are what make that happen. It seems the feminists forget this…

Secondly,

“Work men do is important.”

Why thank you, Captain Obvious-yes it seems men ARE somewhat useful. :) But wait! I just complimented men-if I was a feminist, wouldn’t that be a form of heresy?! Haha, I digress…anyways- behind this statement, there’s usually contempt of domestic work (making a home, raising children, etc.) in play. Since I already went into the importance of domestic work in the previous paragraph, I will not go into it again here.

Thus,

“Women must do men’s work.”

This is a fallacy and completely false. It logically “works” only if one thinks that men’s work is the ONLY option as far as “important things to do” goes. Once you realize that there are lots of important things to do besides “man’s work” (like say, “woman’s work”) then the conclusion can no longer follow from the premises given.

So there you go. Improper Concept of Feminine Societal Contribution: Refuted

Well said. one thing that, always makes me laugh inside, is when, "The Man" says Women need to do mans work, so they can contribute to society, BUT then they turn around and say women are too incapable, and incompetent to do men's work. LOL! =D
