Now that this controversy is gaining more and more attention, I feel that it is my duty to stand up for what I know to be true and what I believe in. I feel like it's important to help people realize--whether you are Mormon or not, active or inactive in the faith--thatNOT ALL MORMON WOMEN FEEL THIS WAY.
- · Stand-up urinals would be found in ALL bathrooms, not just the men’s room. Woohoo!
- · The exact same sports programs would be found at ALL schools for both genders everywhere, so you couldn’t have a men’s football team without having a women’s football team, a men’s soccer team without a women’s team, a women’s cheerleading team without a men’s cheer team, a men’s wrestling, baseball, volleyball, water polo, lacrosse, etc. without having the same women’s teams. Oh, well, there goes most of your programs! Sorry kids!
- · Men would now have the ability to give birth. Congrats fellas, now you can say you did most of the work and actually be right.
- · If a crime is committed, whether it is petty or serious, there is a one-size-fits-all solution. No need for judges if we’re all treated the exact same way!
- · There would be no sales or coupons—why should Sally have to pay $25.99 for a pair of sandals when Julie gets to buy the same pair for half off during the store’s big sale? Not the same! Not fair! Oppression!!
2.The “Gender Inequality” that these women are referring to is an issue with society not the Mormon religion.
I know I am a divine daughter of Heavenly Father and have been given special privileges and terrifying responsibilities that I know I will be accountable for in the next life. We, as women, are more precious than rubies in the eyes of our Heavenly Father (Proverbs 31:10).
