I used to be a part of the progressive movement. All power, blue hair, and all. But then I met my husband and my eyes were opened to other perspectives. Was it actually healthy, what I was doing? Would I be happy down the road? Turns out, the answers were all nos. That’s when I decided to denounce my colors, together with my rainbow pride and took to learning the traditional arts of womanhood. In this post, we will take a look at some of the tenets of modern feminism, and what I think of them now.
Modern feminism is a multifaceted ideology that claims to advocate for gender equality, challenging traditional gender roles, and seeking to dismantle systemic oppression. It builds upon the progress of earlier feminist movements and addresses a broad spectrum of issues, encompassing reproductive rights, workplace discrimination, body positivity, and intersectionality. Within this dynamic landscape, modern feminism allegedly strives to empower individuals of all genders and identities, with the overarching goal of creating a more equitable and inclusive world.
We are equal, but we are not the same
‘I can do what you can do, on my period! I don’t need no man!’
Yes yes, we all know you are just as strong and mentally stable as the man next to you. But are you really? The feminists of today seem to have forgotten all about biology. Such foolishness will bring humanity nothing but sorrow. Both men and women are needed, each in their own unique way.
Since when did the word equal start to mean identical? We can’t go through a movie without some chick trying to be more badass than she needs to be. And often times she hasn’t even bothered with the whole hero’s journey thing, either. Such menial tasks are meant for the bleps, obviously.
As a housewife who leans to the traditional side these days, I believe in reality. No, we can’t do all they can do, just as much as they can’t do all we can do. That doesn’t make us unequal, though. It makes us different, yet simultaneously just as valuable as the other. We have different purposes and different strengths, we should lean on them instead of trying to take it all down in disgrace.
There is no Patriarchy
The boogeyman under every self-respecting feminist’s bed is of course the patriarchy. It creeps up on them at home, in the workplace, and even randomly while they are just trying to take a walk. It works hard to oppress anyone and everyone that doesn’t have an extra leg. That is, of course, if you believe such a thing exists in the West, which, you guessed it, I don’t.
What kind of patriarchy allows a harlot of a woman to become the country’s prime minister? And puts entirely sexist quotas on the company world, just so we can force women in there? Oh and do, by all means, tell me, why this patriarchy puts its men at risk? No woman of Finland ever had to go to prison for not wanting to serve in the military.
The oppression of the woman is truly running rampant here in Scandinavia. Of course, we don’t dare speak for the sisters back in the Middle East, or Africa. The ocean of women, from young girls to old croons, are actually brought to heel by terror and even mutilation. No. We are the oppressed because we don’t get to kill our children on a whim. Though that has changed, now it’s enough to just want it, apparently.
Not all monsters are men
‘’Gender-based’’ violence tends to not talk about the role of women in domestic cases or child killings. Just today I learned of an influencer mom who had been starving and abusing her kids. And she had over 2 million subscribers on YouTube! So indeed, we need to stop pretending like all monsters are men. Draw light to the women as well. It’s equality, after all.
When it comes to women being judged and sentenced, it’s all too often the case that they get off the hook. When Dana White smacked his wife (not saying it was cool, just so you know), nobody stopped for a moment. The wife actually assaulted him first, what is he supposed to do, just take it? Let’s not pretend like it doesn’t happen often that women are slapping men around and expect no retaliation.
This recent article in the Finnish national outlet cites that mothers are more likely to be the perpetrators of children’s homicides. Isn’t that startling? And here we are busy blaming the men for their faults. Instead of say, shedding light on the various mental illnesses of mostly women.
Any life is not yours to snuff out
Everyone is pro-choice – unless it’s a matter of life and death. And that is exactly what abortion is, a choice between life and death. Why are we making it any less? You, woman, you know the consequences of sex. You are not naive, or at least I hope not. If you are, perhaps it’s not your place to be having such relations to begin with.
Every person, be it a man or a woman or neither, needs to step up and start taking responsibility for their actions. If you behave like a raccoon in heat, the aftermath will follow. And in the midst of your sighs of relief due to not getting STDs this time, you ponder whether or not you should become a murderer. Any life, be it at the end of its journey or just starting up, is not yours to snuff out.
And what of the father? I haven’t heard much about the rights of the father to their child. Sure, if you don’t want it, you certainly don’t need to keep it. Let the people who care more about the preciousness take care of the baby. Instead of killing it because you don’t feel like having a child. At least, ask the father what he thinks. This is his future on the line as well, it’s time to stop being so darn selfish.
Desiring properness is not taking away your rights
Promiscuous behavior is not desirable. And it certainly doesn’t make womankind look any better to any self-respecting men. Gone are the days when women actually respected themselves enough to not go out in their underwear. The days of taste, finesse, and elegance. There’s nothing elegant about a woman my size stuffing themselves into ropes three times too small and calling it empowering.
The reality is, that the mythical good men that have seemingly vanished, will not go for someone with such a lack of morals. Who in their right mind would want to pair up with someone who will flaunt themselves for everyone else? And with great probability, will stop doing so for their man.
The desire to not free the nipple is not taking away from your rights. If anything, it’s pretty much taking away from the rest of us who would like to live a life of decency. Who are you to harass us with your selfishness and false sense of right and wrong? I can’t imagine being an orthodox these times, there are buttocks and breasts hanging out of every orifice.
Gender roles are there for a reason
As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, the two sexes are very different. And that’s a good thing in the final analysis. Without the both of us, there would be no humanity. Similarly, without the protection of good men throughout history, there would be no free women. And this is still happening in the places where women get beaten in the streets for not being proper according to the tyrant.
Women will never naturally be as strong, or logical as men (generalizations, people, jeesh!). And a biological man will never be as emotionally inclined, nor will he carry a child or give birth. Can’t nurse the baby either without a bottle in hand. There are ancient systems in place, and we would be wise not to rattle them for vanity’s sake.
Men do not rule the roost because they have put us under their feet. Believe me, if they decided to do that we’d know. And it wouldn’t be very pretty. In that scenario, you can only wish that the monster you’ve unleashed when the men had enough is one that loves you. Otherwise, you can say goodbye to the silly notions of consent. Men rule because they are good at it, built for it, one might say.
Even when I was a part of the movement, I wasn’t much of an activist. And I’m glad I wasn’t, considering how they seem to carry themselves today. All the screaming and violence, breaking the laws… My life would’ve been over before I even would’ve noticed anything strange in the air.
And it’s not just the irrational, emotional outbursts of hatred and misandry, it’s that all logic seems to have escaped them. I’ve yet to see a proper debate where the woke nation would’ve come up with any logic or evidence. It looks to me like they love to be present, pick a fight, and interrupt the bigot extreme right-wing nazi when the heat turns on.
And that about sums it up. If someone has any legitimate proof of any of the claims of inequality or systemic oppression within the Western world, I’m right here. And no, don’t come to me with the whole pay gap thing, that myth has been busted so many times it ought to be ashamed of itself.
Though, I did find this old, new thing called New Feminism. Based on my superficial check out of the ism, it might be something I’d root for. You know, the kind of sensibility I’ve been looking for in women. Perhaps there’s hope for humanity yet!
