1 Peter 3:7
"As unto the weaker vessel" sounds pretty sexist to me. That they have different roles? Since when did they have different roles in modern society? You're telling the job of the woman is to be the heart, not the head? That's pretty sexist as well.

The weaker vessel?

Oh, save me from the well-meaning Christians.

Men are generally a little stronger then women, "As unto the weaker vessel" means that husbands should protect there wives (I think)

Ruza said that men can overpower women, I believe.
