Romans 1:31 describes a particular group of committed ungodly people this way. I’ll give three translations of the same passage:
…without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful…
…they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless…
…void of understanding, faithless, without natural affection, unmerciful…
Our cultural arbiters’ latest lesson on the state of women’s rights:
Hardly clothed beefy Beyonce dancing/contorting along with a cohort of other hardly-dressed women at some awards show, and, reportedly making it impossble to avoid the visual assault of gyrating behinds right in your face. The song ending with Beyonce silhouetted before a gigantic lighted word: FEMINISM.
(Notable that she was a tiny little woman dwarfed by that word?)
In other words, girls, this is feminism. What you just watched is the essence of feminism.
The essence of feminism is…the objectification of women…by women? You’re a thing. Happy now?
So being a true feminist means empowering yourself by means of being as sexually provocative, as sexually explicit, and as sexually active as possible, as early as possible. Without consequence, in fairy feminist land. And that’s all.
Explain to me again why anyone wants to be called a feminist?
Forgive me, but there is no term more amorphous today than “feminism.” No two feminists seem to share the same definition. I have seen no–not one–discussion on the blogosphere or other social media wherein at least one woman is not compelled to explain what feminism ISN’T, really. You thought it was Gloria Steinem and her fish/bicycle, or lesbianism, or being pro-abortion. Silly, it’s not any of those things.
It’s what I want to believe it is. It’s just fairness and equal pay for equal work. That’s all.
Those other things like: the absolute right to abort your child, the absolute right to free-for-me-but-taxpayer-funded contraceptives, contention between the sexes, bisexuality, lesbianism, male-hating, goddess worship, gender vs. sex, “rape culture”, eternal conflict over the “division of domestic labor”, patriarchy, victimhood…don’t have anything to do with feminism. Because I don’t want them to.
Yet I hear mainstream women, Christian women, declare proudly that they are feminists. You know, what they mean by feminism.
Isn’t it time to acknowledge that the thing you want feminism to be isn’t what it really is? Maybe you should split off and found another movement which is about fairness and harmony. Cause that sure ain’t feminism.
And the essence of feminism sure isn’t about letting women be women, and letting little girls be little girls.
It’s sad. Because among other things, I think feminism has robbed feminist women of sexual satisfaction.
It’s convinced them that it is merely a mechanical act, a pressure valve.
Or a power play, wherein your partner is a thing to be used and exalted over. Sound familiar?
Feminism has made the object of sexual satisfaction the self, robbing women of emotional connection with a partner. Like it or not, the point of sex is for two people to complement each other by being united into one. Real sexual intimacy is an act of the will involving the whole person, body, soul, emotion.
And they have separated sex from its intrinsic component—fruitfulness. Sexual intimacy is designed to potentially result in reproduction. Modern women are persuaded that their greatest fear is a child. That their greatest enemy is a baby. It is the worst possible thing, and an abject failure. It has made us fear our fruitfulness instead of glorying in our design.
The kind of empowering sex they promote makes it all about me, not about him or about us.
Brainless, faithless, heartless, and mindless sounds like a fitting description of feminism. Hello–Feminism is Marxism, plain and simple. Intentional violent struggle between opposed groups for the purpose of bringing about change in the power structure.
Where’s the violence? Do 50 million count? Ladies, when oppression falls, it’s not the women who are the victims.
On Being a Parasite
“[Housewives] are mindless and thing-hungry…not people. [Housework] is peculiarly suited to the capacities of feeble-minded girls. [It] arrests their development at an infantile level, short of personal identity with an inevitably weak core of self…. [Housewives] are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps. [The] conditions which destroyed the human identity of so many prisoners were not the torture and brutality, but conditions similar to those which destroy the identity of the American housewife.” – Betty Friedan
(Someone must have cleaned her house. Can you feel the elitism?)
“[Housewives] are dependent creatures who are still children…parasites.” ~ Gloria Steinem, “What It Would Be Like If Women Win,” Time, August 31, 1970.
“A parasite sucking out the living strength of another organism…the [housewife’s] labor does not even tend toward the creation of anything durable…. [W]oman’s work within the home [is] not directly useful to society, produces nothing. [The housewife] is subordinate, secondary, parasitic. It is for their common welfare that the situation must be altered by prohibiting marriage as a ‘career’ for woman.” ~ Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex, 1949.
Who is the parasite?
Whose hoped-for world view requires a paradigm shift in the order of the whole world until now? Whose requires, before it can be operational, that almost every single member of society be indoctrinated into a mindset which is contrary to that which has been built by the consensus of all societies everywhere?
Who is the parasite? Which woman is living upon the structure of the work of the other woman? Without women everywhere occupying their natural or Biblical or traditional roles, keeping society running and thriving, the feminist would not be able to survive. She stands on the shoulders of a societal structure created by God, manifested by the lives and work of multitudes of women before her, and disdains them.
The activist feminist is a spoiler, a crank. She is an elitist, a nasty parasite, a spoiled child. She is very much a first-world creation; no one in the 2nd world on down would have time for such gratuitous fluff.
And don’t get me started on the utter privileged elitism of the anti-child wing of the movement. That’s another blog or hundred.
So again, why do we want to be feminists?
