Women’s Studies, complementarian style

09 Dec

Well, well; lookee there; Southern Baptists now have ‘Women’s Studies’ at their seminaries; typical… Anyone who still thinks that either SoBaps or the CBMW are truly trads is an idiot.


I shouldn’t have been surprised to learn that there is a Women’s Studies professor on the CBMW Council:

Mary Kassian, M.C.A.O.T.

Homemaker, Author, Women’s Ministry Consultant
Edmonton, AB, Canada
Distinguished Professor of Women’s Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Louisville, KY

For an idea of just what a complementarian Women’s Studies professor is like, here is a video of Professor Kassian discussing the importance of escaping the repression of the 1950s, as well as her feminist past. Kassian features this video in a blog post titled Kissing Traditionalism Good-bye.  You can watch the video below or from her blog, but either way I suggest clicking on her blog to see the girlpower image she prefaced this with.  Kassian is the one in red on the left:

The unspoken premise of the discussion is that Christians got it all wrong for nineteen and a half centuries, and then the…

    It’s the Trojan horse approach. “Im one of you, goy”

    Makes me think that perhaps complementarians call themselves such because they fear implications of Patriarchy.

    They try to trot a middle ground between the Divine Order and the cultural consensus of gender equality or female supremacy and fail.

    What strikes me is how vague the whole conversation is. That’s because in order to fulfil the Book, feminist tenets must be rejected utterly. There is no midpoint. Only an idiot doesn’t see this. Once the crisis comes, women will be happy to return to ’50’s culture. My WW2 Gen grandmothers thought feminism was dumb. It’s a myth that they hated sex roles back in the ’50’s. What they hated was riveting together tanks in factories during the war. They liked it about as much as men like taking care of babies.

    @ RG7: Indeed, red and left usually go together… 🙂

    @ SJ: Yep.

    @ infowarrior1: It annoys me they claim that term for themselves, because they do real complementarians a disservice. But it is typical of such type to do that to language…

    @ weak stream: And yet some women did like riveting, because unlike after WWI, most stayed in the factories after WWII. Maybe they just liked the money…

    Around a million guys came back from war and got to work. American industry was booming but very few women were working back then. I don’t know of any of my grandparents wives that were working in the fifties. Some got jobs in the ’70’s, after the kids came of age and also due to consequences of inflation. (H/T Federal Reserve). The myth that women enjoyed doing men’s work is just that. Feminism is such a bizarre world view that it needs an assortment of myths to flourish. No, ’50’s stay at home moms liked it fine. It was their daughters that bought into the crap and rebelled against it.

    Ah. So it was more gradual a movement into the workplace. Interesting.
