Functions

Douglas Wilson writes:
"So which is superior, a ten-pound sledge, or a china tea cup? The answer depends entirely on what you want to do. Do you want to drink tea or drive in railroad spikes? To ascribe to a railroad spike the attributes of delicacy and beauty would be to insult the railroad (not that it would care). It would not be an insult to the attributes of delicacy and beauty themselves. The Bible tells us that women are not as good as men are in the important work of violence. Men have one kind of strength and women have another. The strength of each domain becomes a weakness outside that domain. No man should want to be told that he throws hand grenades like a girl. And no mother should want to be told that she rocks her child to sleep like a team of Navy Seals" (Federal Husband, p. 80)
