Fish don’t need bicycles, but we need men to speak against abortion

Posted by Joseph on 8 February, 2013

Feminist Gloria Steinem made this dreadful statement popular: “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.” Not only is the phrase insulting and downright mean, but it’s also a blatant lie. Standing up for the rights of women is important. Women have been underpaid, abused, overlooked, and devalued. Women need protection and support. However, degrading men should never be part of the process of empowering women.
Men are our fathers, brothers, uncles, and cousins. They’re our coaches, teachers, leaders, and heroes. Men fight battles overseas, endure long hours in Corporate America, and struggle to provide food for their children. Fathers walk us down the aisle, and husbands hug us when we need it most.

I believe that God has placed in men an innate desire to protect, defend, and provide for those they love. There’s a reason why men flock to the theater to see the latest Tom Cruise flick. Of course, guys like the fast cars and explosions. Yet I think there is something more to the story. Perhaps inside every man is a need to win a war and rescue a maiden.
