the Fall and the original sex role reversal:

[See Genesis 3:1-6]

"Eve usurped Adam's headship and led the way into sin. And Adam, who (it seems) had stood by passively, allowing the deception to progress without decisive intervention–Adam, for his part, abandoned his post as head.
Eve was deceived; Adam forsook his responsibility. Both were wrong and together they pulled the human race down into sin and death.
Isn't it striking that we fell upon an occasion of sex role reversal? Are we to repeat this confusion forever? Are we to institutionalize it in evangelicalism in the name of the God who condemned it in the beginning?"
