Did God make the woman head of the family?

Our God is a god of order and he created the world to work in an order - God - Man - Woman. This is an ORDER just like you have intercourse, conceive and deliver a child. It doesn't work the other way around. Why do we think we can change this order and all will go well for us? Why do we always think we know better than the God who is wisdom itself? God created this order for a purpose, like everything else he does.  The man was created to stand in a leadership role in all aspects of society with the woman as his helper beginning from the time of Adam and Eve i.e from the family unit. When you read through the Bible from the Old to the new testament you will find that all women of the Bible (Hebrew women) have played supportive roles to their male counterparts. The few times where women have led in the Bible was ONLY when there was no man to lead like in the case of Deborah in the book of Judges. But this was not God's initial plan, the same way God did not plan for man to marry and then divorce. This is an example of Gods permissive will as against his perfect will. Sometimes he allows things to happen not because that is what he wants but because man insists and gives him no choice.
 
From the time of Aaron to Christ and his apostles, God has always chosen men as his priests. This is because it is in line with his intended order of creation. A woman becoming a priest automatically distorts that order and makes her the head over men because she is in charge. what next will we begin to advocate for a female Pope? God forbid. God in his infinite wisdom has set the world to work in an order, but the problem is humanity has always sought to distort that order right from the time of Adam and Eve. We always think we know better than God and are always clamouring to go our own way.
 
Advocating for female priest is simply another form of human rebellion against God and his perfect will. Please leave well alone. The family is the basic unit of life, that makes up all other aspects of society including the church. If God made man to head the family, why would he make woman to head his church?
