What the feminists are trying to promote through "equality" between the genders it is quite comical. Who REALLY would want a woman rescuing a man? Can you imagine Wilma Wallace in Braveheart or Popeye the Sailorwoman? It just does not sound right! The big, strong Knight in Shining Armor is supposed to rescue the Princess. It is just how it is.
In contrast, the Biblical model is one of romance and heroism. A man who leads and a woman who submits is one of the most romantic and heroic pictures of all. And deep down inside, feminists know this. Even our fallen culture reflects this. Look at what is considered "great" literature today. Look at the dime store novels that are considered romantic. Look at the movies. No truly romantic film involves the woman heroically saving the man. No work of great literature, from The Odyssey to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has the women saving the men, or even fighting alongside the men.
Feminists recognize this and cry about the “sexism” in literature, but they have yet to produce anything noteworthy of the other kind, because they know it wouldn’t
sell. And the reason it wouldn’t sell is because when we look for heroes, we don’t look to watered down men and defeminized women. We don’t look for egalitarianism; we look for the complementary. Even witchcraft, the most arguably feminist religion of them all, recognizes the differences between men and women and the need for this balance, this dance. The reason they cry against patriarchy is they claim that it only represents one side. They are looking for what God has put into them: “And the Lord God said: 'It is not good for man to be alone: let us make him a help like unto himself'” (Genesis 2:18). They are looking for something their minds won’t allow them to accept but their spirits know exists. Tragically, they are looking in all the wrong places.

Feminism Ruins Heros!
I read an article called, “Looking for heroism in all the wrong places” on Ladies Against Feminism and thought I would share a section:
