There is definitely some truth to this. I tend to be dominant by nature, as is my fiance...which is part of what attracts me to him It has taken us many years to work this out, since our initial romance years ago came with a lot of fighting. I'm not even left-leaning either, even though I have typically been the feminist-lesbian type. I will have some adjustment to do once I get married, because his church is the "women be silent" type, at least as far as preaching and studying scripture. My GFs who are going with me have less trouble because they are not dominant by nature.

The Christian faith acknowledges no less than 3 female prophets.

Do not take the idea that women do not take a preaching or ruling role in the church to mean they have a lesser position. I have never encountered a Christian faith that discouraged women studying scripture... I would be wary of any that did.

I also would not take seriously any church that claims to be Christian and has women preaching. That goes against both Old and New Testament practices and tells me they don't believe the actual scripture their religion is based upon.

Psychological studies have recently shown that dominant type women... often referred to as bi-strategic controllers are happiest when with men who are more dominant than themselves. One striking study, showed that dominant women enjoyed force more frequently in their erotic fiction. It seems to indicate they prefer a more dominant man in the bedroom as well. Interesting.

I don't think anyone should attempt a religious conversion without a serious amount of deep research and personal reflection. The majority of the people in the world converting religions are moving to Christianity. I suspect that if it wasn't for the threat of beheading and persecution 8-12% of the Islamic world would convert within 5 years. China is poised to be the largest Christian nation on the planet by 2025... as they are moving towards 300 million Christians... despite massive government repression.

Meanwhile Islam is growing just as fast, but by creating babies... and as a byproduct poverty. The western nations are being overtaken by what can best be described as Secular Judaism... which accounts for nearly 25% of all millennials in the US alone.

So, that's pretty much the world report on religious conversions.

The church I am joining encourages women to study scripture, but discourages them teaching it - except perhaps in female-only groups. Religious authority is given exclusively to men. To me it feels too old-fashioned, but it is just a part of it.

I think it is interesting that dominant women sometimes enjoy force more. I know that is true for me sometimes. My fiance isn't a "classically" dominant person...but there is no doubt about his determination and ability to get things done. He also holds a leadership role in the church, although he handles security rather than preaching or teaching.

I have also seen that Christianity is growing. In the past few years, I have seen atheist and pagan friends convert to one of the many forms of Christianity. Now my girlfriends are converting, and I'm following along. I think one thing that helps is that there are so many forms of it in terms of worship as well as variations in doctrine. Almost a flavor for everyone, it seems. I know there are disputes going back a thousand years about what the true form of Christianity is. My fiance has a saying, I don't know where he got it, but I like it. "In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things, charity."
