Feminism and Men

I’m the child of divorce and I remember seeing this phrase on many items around our house as a young child.

A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.

This has often been attributed to Gloria Steinem but not positively.

However, yesterday when I was reading the book So Much More by Anna Sofia Botkin and Elizabeth Botkin, I enjoyed their analogy to that statement based on the following verses.

1 Corinthians 11:11-12
11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman;
12 for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. ESV

So using the feminist reasoning we end up with this.

The Church without Christ is like a fish without a bicycle.

So how could a believer possibly think like this?
