Daddy Dobson on the sexes
I sullied my father-in-law’s laptop by surfing over to Daddy Dobson’s site to see this hilarious article about the differences between men and women and how it affects marital tranquility. I had to pull a couple of quotes out, but there are plenty of gems in this article.
It is important to understand some of the other ways men and women are unique if we hope to live together in harmony. Genesis tells us that the Creator made two sexes, not one, and that He designed each gender for a specific purpose. Take a good look at male and female anatomy and it becomes obvious that we were crafted to “fit” together. This is not only true in a sexual context but psychologically as well. Eve, being suited to his particular needs, was given to Adam as “help-meet.” How unfortunate has been the recent effort to deny this uniqueness and homogenate the human family! It simply won’t square with the facts.
…In functions, women have several very important ones totally lacking in manâ€”menstruation, pregnancy, lactation. All of these influence behavior and feelings. The same gland behaves differently in the two sexes–thus woman’s thyroid is larger and more active; it enlarges during pregnancy but also during menstruation; it makes her more prone to goiter, provides resistance to cold, and is associated with the smooth skin, relatively hairless body, and thin layer of subcutaneous fat, which are important elements in the concept of personal beauty. It also contributes to emotional instability–she laughs and cries more easily.
We’re on the road tomorrow, so no posting for a while.
