Gender Unequality

Katy points out 1 Corinthians 11:11 as she looks for a woman's place, but if you read the verses around it (I'll skip the parts about hair and head covering):
For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
1 Corinthians 11:9,10,11,12
Ultimately, we are all from God. That is, both man and woman are created by God, and each have their place in this world. However, it's clear from verses 9 and 10 that gender equality that Americans [and other developed nations] seek is, if anything, anti-biblical and destructive in the long term.

[On a slightly different tangent, it took a while of reading and thinking but I now agree with Vox Day that woman shouldn't get to vote and suffrage is among the top worst ideas in the history of mankind (and womankind, for that matter). If you want to discuss suffrage, go to VD's blog or email and have at it. I'm just giving him a free plug (grin).]
