A Fair Trade Book

The closest might be the question about the timing of sex. Women have a monthly cycle, and some young men seem to have a daily cycle, between maximal and minimal interest. The definition of a submissive relationship is that the submissive partner is excited by giving pleasure to the other. In a marriage this could work like C.S. Lewis's description of how Christians of different persuasions would act if they were in serious agreement about charity and humility—the ones who hadn't grown up “crossing themselves” doing it so as not to tempt a friend into impiety, and the ones who had grown up making that gesture refraining so as not to tempt a friend into blasphemy. Those humble Christians would be practicing submissiveness in the context of fellowship in church. In a mutually submissive marriage a couple can apply the same concept to sex, and I can say that both of those people know they've been well and truly blessed.
So no matter how much gender parity we may succeed in building into society-as-a-whole--and I say the more the better--I still think it's a good idea for women to think seriously about this idea of wifely submission. Or, if you're not prepared to put your life and thought on hold and wait on him hand and foot when he really needs to be waited on, maybe sleeping alone and being the last in your crowd to get married have more to recommend them than you might have thought they had.
I go into this because I'm following e-friends on Twitter and Google + who are going through that "healthy care giver" stage of life, at the time of writing, and that stage of life stinks. And most women who choose a life partner either become healthy care givers, or become horrible deserters-of-sick-partners. And, like living to grow old, being the healthy care giver is preferable to the only real alternative.
Be liberated, young woman reader. Be a feminist, or a "post-feminist." Be an entrepreneur. Be a leader. Be strong. Be smart. Be brave. And within marriage, be submissive enough that when your man says "I need to get up, to use a basin, bedpan, whatever, again," in the middle of the night, you've formed a habit of responding with love.
Liberated Through Submission is a Fair Trade Book, available on this web site's usual terms: $5 per book, $5 per package (up to five more books of this size will ship in the same package), $1 per online payment, from which we'll send $1 to Wilson or a charity of her choice.
