Why Do Women Ask For More Punishment??

See Genesis 3.

First, let me explain how it all went down (of course, in my own eyes) ~:-)
So, Adam and Eve are hangin out in the most perfect and beautiful place on earth. Nice! Eve's been checkin out this forbidden fruit tree and can't help herself. The serpent's been lying to her for awhile saying, "It's all good...and you'll be like God if you eat this." Well, who doesn't want to be like God?! Anyway, she gives in to the serpent's lies and eats the fruit. She then looks directly at Adam (with the look of death) and says, "If you don't eat this fruit, you're not gettin any tonight!!" Well! Adam's not stupid, he does exactly what is wife tells him to do. Sure enough, things go south immediately.

God sees what all went down and plays dumb. He comes walking around the corner looking for Adam and Eve, but they're hiding and wearing leaves. God asks them, "What's up with that?" Adam confesses to eating the forbidden fruit and says it's all Eve's fault. God turns to Eve and says, "What have you done?!" Then, Eve blames it on the the serpent and says, "The walking snake made me do it!"

Then God's like, "What in the world?!?!!!" Finally, he begins to lay the smack down. Then, the next words out of his mouth are pretty harsh. According to the order of events and those responsible, He tells the serpent he's doomed. Then he looks right at Eve and says, "Now, for you young lady. You're gonna have mad pain when you have babies. AND, on top of that, you're gonna wish you could rule over dudes, but instead, they're gonna be the boss. Have a nice day!" Lastly, God looks directly at Adam with his hands up in disappointment, "Really?? What did I tell you?!! Alright. This is how it's gonna be. You're gonna work whole lot. Actually, you're gonna work till you die. Then, it's gonna be hard work. All these bad things will always happen while you're workin. Then, you'll sweat and work some more. Plus, the dirt will barely provide you anything you need. Make sense?!"

Finally, Adam's first response to all this, he looks at the woman and says, "I've figured out the perfect name for you..."


Now, let me get to the point. Seriously though. Why do women ask for more punishment? God already cursed women with much child pain and never-ending struggles with Satan for her children. Men were cursed to work, and work hard with little output. So, at what point did women decide that the pains of child birth and the struggles of their offspring were not enough punishment that they started to adopt the man's curse also. All the sudden, it's a big deal for women to work. And, if women don't get their fair share of work (punishment), then they're not being treated fairly. Does this make any sense? Look, this is not completely far-fetched so I know you understand what I'm saying.

I know women are NOT dumb. Probably more than half the time women are smarter than men (I think the odds of women being smarter is actually more, but let's not go there). Ya'll are maybe a little weird, and extreme, and crazy, and jealous, and...whatever else. But, it doesn't add up. Honestly, all men have is our work. It's something that we should do well and we should try hard to perfect. It's our role and curse in life. Men, usually take great pride in their work and their jobs usually define who they are. We compete for job success and men are always striving to be better than the next guy. We've done our best with our curse and have tried forever to make it better and easier any way we can (hence our love for power tools). Honestly, I really feel if men aren't working, they should be in prison where they are forced to do labor.

Women, don't you have enough on your plate?? Haven't you had enough physical pain?? Haven't you seen your kids struggle enough with sin?? Is it not enough that Satan wants to kill and destroy you and your children?? Does it not drive you to do everything you can to help teach your kids to make the best decisions in life?? Do you not see how awesome and important your role is????

Another fact is, men are not so great and comfortable at raising kids. It's just not in us as much as it is in you. Sure raising kids is harder than working a "real" job, but God chose YOU to naturally be mothers and care-takers. Yes, working is easier than raising kids, but since girls are built for the role, being mothers and care-takers should be an easier job for you. Don't get me wrong, this doesn't give men excuses for not playing an active role in the lives of their children, but that's being preached enough already...

I'm not trying to tell women to stop working. I'm just trying to say that women's focus should be on her family and not struggle so hard for a man's punishment. I think women should be paid just as much as men, treated more fairly etc. Please don't think I'm a "women shouldn't work" hater. Honestly, I'll want my wife to work as much as she can so we can have more nice stuff too!

Now, for you women that are single mothers and have to work to make ends meet, I'm truly sorry. It's next to impossible to be everything you need to be for your child. It's not fair and it's wrong. A real man should be there. You have my prayers and you have my UPMOST respect. Please, please, never give up and do your best to set the example for your child. Ask God for what you need and let him do the rest. Until then, be smart and do what you gotta do.

Single women without kids, stop being stupid and start looking for a real man. There are very few, so choose wisely.

Final thought: I know there are exceptions to every rule... ~:-D

I can't say I disagree with any of it. You have weird way of saying it...but I know your heart and you already know where I stand...hmmm. I'm balanced.

I have money, savings, financial responsiblity BUT I KNOW my priorities are God given...GOD, Marriage, kids, family, extended family, church My husband will be my priority under God, my child under the marriage...I like how you put this...the disclaimer at the end only makes it much more a DATHAN blog. I love the way God made me. Now I have to find a MAN to respect it!
