The Super Bowl commercial formulation of equality

We aren't robots composed of software routines that will eventually get the fullness of humanity "right." From the very beginning, we were distinct, interrelated beings - "He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created."

Female empowerment according to Super Bowl commercials is women doing things men do. Raise your hand if you think the female body was meant to experience full contact football or frontline combat.

Women are amazing, powerful, and majestic creatures in the full flowering of their femininity. Equality of the sexes is found not in homogeneity but complementarity.


  1. The male body was not meant to experience frontline combat.

    1. Point taken, but there are numerous physiological and behavioral differences between the sexes, rendering men more suited for physical violence and aggression.

      I don't think mechanization of combat really changes things either. Sex differences show up in video gaming too.

    2. I beg to differ. Men absolutely designed for combat to protect our families. That is why men are inherently physically stronger than women.

    3. That is not quite true. Men may be better suited for combat but we are not designed for it: all, men and women alike, are designed to live in the image and after the likeness of God.

    4. We're getting lost in the weeds on that one. It's a classic Whig/liberal rhetorical trick designed to keep us off point.

      Before man was created the angels engaged in combat against Lucifer and his minions.

      Regardless, our bodies are complememtary with different features and attributes.
