In a recent memoir written by Volleyball star Gabrielle Reece, she claims, “To truly be feminine means being soft, receptive, and – look out, here it comes – submissive.”
Needless to say, this has ruffled the feathers of many people. Reece went on the Today show to defend her position. She said, “I think because women have the ability to set the tone, that the ultimate strength and showing real power, I believe, is creating that environment. I think it’s a sign of strength.’’
Slacker said that for a long time he only had one opinion of his mom because of the way his dad was raised. He said is dad was very rural and had the mindset that women belonged in the kitchen, and because of that Slacker thought his mom was kind of weak. Slacker also pointed out the fact that when the cultural mindset was women belonged in the house and should be submissive to their husbands, marriages lasted longer. He’s not saying he agrees with it, but that’s how it was. Steve said he doesn’t agree that being submissive would work in today’s society.
Do you agree with Reece’s statement? Do you think she’s crazy?
