We’ve gone the wrong way, baby: Time for women to go home!
I’m ashamed to be a woman. I feel less for it…like I don’t quite measure up. Now understand, men have never made me feel less. No, this inferiority complex began about 35 years ago with a little thing called Feminism. Feminism has made me ashamed of my sex-as a group and individually.
There was a time when women deserved respect-because we are mothers, because of our natural softness and tender feelings, because we have been the ones who raised up righteous leaders of good nations for centuries now. We dropped the ball on that most vital role, not men. Consequently, we don’t deserve the respect that men-yes men!–have bestowed upon us any longer. It is the day care facility-institutions-that raises our children now, and the result has been the most horrific social experiment history has ever seen.
In the sixties, women began taking the easy way out. Why? Because Motherhood is a damned hard thing to do. It is 24/7/365. There is no pay, no immediate gratification, little recognition, and more often than not, no appreciation until you yourself become a mother. When you go to work, you get to dress nicely. You have a schedule that you actually keep. People do what you tell them to do. You get to speak to and with adults, have conversations that have meaning. You get regular breaks, and no one is peeing or spitting up on you, throwing tantrums, breaking your things, or calling Grandma to get his way. And while there is truth to the fact that society has both revered and ridiculed that which comes naturally to women-tenderness-it is women-not men–who have inflicted the most damage. Let me explain why.
Men have always been in awe of the female form-not just physically, but spiritually and emotionally as well. While they may burst with pride over their strength and snicker at the physical “weakness” of women when compared to men, they hold in that realm of mystical and reverent those attributes of femininity that are not as comfortable within themselves, and they marvel about them in private moments. They reveal this wondering in ways that are at times misunderstood, but nevertheless bespeak of the awe they feel toward the female sex.
My all time favorite saying about the power women possess was revealed by author Samuel Johnson in the 18th century:Nature has given women so much power that the law has very wisely given them little. Now before feminists start ripping tendons and ligaments with their typical knee-jerk reaction to this example, look again. This is a statement and recognition of the power and strength men recognize within women-power they envy, strength they admire, and tenderness they crave. This is a statement of respect and recognition for women, not belittlement.
Jump forward to the 20th century, and the advent of militant feminism that took hold of our culture. Now understand, there isn’t a person-male or female-that I know who doesn’t believe that women were mistreated in the past, or that they deserve rights of voting, work, etc. So let’s just toss that ridiculous argument from the get-go. No, this is about the fact that these Stalinistic Types who decided that women deserved better-not just equal-treatment than men have overtaken, destroyed, and even in the face of logic and reason-and their own case studies and evaluations–turned to typical female histrionics to bludgeon society into doing what they say.
This was driven home with a resounding wham! when Bernard Goldberg-a man, no less–talked about the final straw that made him decide he could no longer play his part in the Liberal Lineup that has overtaken the media. In his best-selling bookBias, Goldberg states that there had been little things for years that had gnawed at his conscience, but it was when he saw what was happening to children-at the behest of women, no less-that he knew he could pretend no more.
Goldberg only gave voice to what we’ve all seen for decades now, but have become too Politically Castrated to say. It is the horrifying trend in our children’s feelings, lives, and behavior. You see, when we began giving into the bullying tactics of the feminist movement that used guilt and “Second Class Status” brainwashing to get women to leave the home, it resulted in our children going en masse to day cares or coming home alone. Suicide rates, sexual diseases, poor academics, increased violence and drug use, not to mention less formal criminal behavior such as arguing a great deal, deliberate and even gleeful cruelty, explosive behavior, too much talking, too much fighting have all been the result of the selfishness of the “Woman-Good-Man-Bad” mentality of those who pay lip service only to it being “for the children” when what they really intend to say is “Mine! Mine! Mine! Now! Now! Now!”
The real kicker to this is that the Gloria Steinems of the world don’t even realize what they were saying by getting women to leave the home for the “man’s world.” It was the women of the world-not the men-who force fed women the notion that what comes naturally to men-to conquer the outside world-was more important, better, more deserving than what comes naturally to women. They were actually demeaning femininity by their own words, and were too foolish to even realize it. The shame of my sex is that we bought into it. The shame of the male sex is that they did too.
Society has paid a dear price for women choosing to listen to these wretched individuals. Women are now in a far worse position than they were 100 years ago; back then, they didn’t have many other choices than to be a wife and mother. Today, if they want to be a wife and mother, they can’t unless they marry a very rich man. Feminism has enslaved us into the “SuperWoman” role-an impossible place to live. But I have a sick feeling that that is exactly their goal. You see, being pro-abortion isn’t enough. They want motherhood and wife-dom to be so difficult, so back-breaking, so agonizing in modern living that women will choose not to marry and have children. For those who still don’t grasp it, let me say it in plain speech: Feminism is the party of the “anti-child.”
“Female Empowerment” was the shameful fantasy. Now for the harsh reality. Sisters, your babies are killing each other. They are having babies at younger ages and in record numbers in a desperate search for that unconditional love they couldn’t find in the myriad of minimum wage babysitters and daycares they had growing up. They are turning to gangs and drugs to ease the pain of loneliness and the longing for Mommy-a longing which is innate, necessary, and good-and it is our fault. Our children are suffering; their tender feelings have waxed cold and all signs of humanity are dying off in agonizing death throes, and we women are the cause. Women. The givers of life have turned against their own offspring in a vain quest for self-fulfillment. It is madness.
Society became this way because we women allowed ourselves to feel ashamed for having children and raising them right, and that was wrong. It’s time for the New Feminist Revolution. No longer can our children-or society-abide the general female answer and shrug: “Well, it’s the day we live in…whatcha gonna do?”
Here’s what you’re gonna do. Women, go home. Get rid of the huge mortgage and move into a trailer. It’s not the neighborhood-or village, idiot!-that raises a good child. Have two cars? Get rid of one and deal with the annoyance of having to drive more. It’s not the car that makes the family. Fancy clothes and vacations? Trivial and silly…those won’t be what your child remembers. Be the one who drops him off and picks him up from school. Those precious moments laughing and talking will always be remembered, I guarantee it. Be in the kitchen, filling a warm home with delicious smells, sounds, and memories, and bring the whole family in to make dinner again, cleaning up together afterwards and bonding over pot roast. It is simple, it is time tested, it is true. The hand that rocks the cradle did-at one time-rule the world. The cradle is silent because the hand is at work and the baby at an institution. Sisters, go home-too much is at stake. Your babies are dying and killing, and the only one who can stop this infanticide is you. The power is-and always has been-yours. Take it back now…it’s almost too late.
Keep the faith, bros-and sis-and in all things courage.
