It takes balls to be a feminine woman—see how that works? Feminism would have you believe that femininity is inherently weak and degrading, but that misinterpretation is based on unrealistic expectations and disregard for women’s general innate desires.
But when Candace Bure, former female actress from the hit 90’s sitcom “Full House”, candidly admitted during an interview with Australian television she likes being a submissive housewife and letting her husband direct the relationship, people freaked out. (scroll down for video)
“I use the word submissive and it’s a word that I’m very comfortable with,” says Candace, “This word can be looked at…as over-dominant, a dictatorship, even oppressive. But the biblical definition of submissive is neither of those. [The biblical definition] is ‘meekness’, it says obeying ‘meekly’. Meekness is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength.”
In defense of her “controversial” beliefs, Candace has written a new book called “Balancing It All: My Struggle of Juggling Priorities and Purpose“, in which she writes, “I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work.”
Although I don’t fully understand the context/implications of her “biblical” use of submissiveness, I generally get what she’s saying: she’s chosen to be a submissive woman who utilizes her inborn, innate capacity to create and nurture life as the medium through which she progresses in life, eventually picking a man of her choosing who embodies the qualities she prefers, and then having children with that man while relying on some of his resources (or even none at all) to create a homely, happy, healthy environment for the raising of their kids—a life path that is just as much a “career” as any job in Corporate America, and certainly just as important and respectable.
Candace elaborates, “My husband and I are equal in importance in our marriage, and my husband does not dominate me, but I love that my man leads our family, because he loves us so much.”
In other words, Candace understands that masculine men and feminine women are not at war with each other, but instead essential halves that form a harmonious whole, serving as the foundation of life and relationships.
