It's seems we've gotten past the point when it was possible to refer to women as "the weaker sex" or any of various other derogatory terms that used to be applied to women. But now it seems like we've just reversed that. Men are the "weaker sex" because they are powerless in front of sexual temptation and missing the necessary moral strength to be sensitive and understanding. A lot of this comes from the world, but I even hear a lot of these lines repeated in Church, such as women need to be extra careful not to offend their husbands because they are not as in control of their tempers as women.
I, for one, am not great at earning money and feel like the roles I'm best at because I care the most about it is husband and father, not as breadwinner. Sure, I'm going to make sure that our family always has enough money to meet our needs, as the Proclamation on the Family says, but I refuse to make that my primary task. I don't want to live a life of income, but a life of involvement, involvement in the life of those I love the most.
What are your feelings about gender roles? Is there something in women that make them better nurturers or in men that make them better at earning a living? Let us know.
