The Unhappy Female, Brought to You By Feminism
Freedom from family and friends in order to work was not as liberating as initially thought
The Unhappy Female, Brought to You By Feminism
"Certainly women wanted, and continue to want, more out of life than “just” to get married and have kids. But that doesn’t mean they do not want those things at all. The culture has settled on this bogus idea that husbands and babies are passé, but they are not passé in the least -- and the “more” has become too much more.
The “more” has made women lonely. The “more” has made women sterile. The “more” has left women fraught with guilt and stress. According to a 2007 report from the National Bureau of Economic Research:
As women have gained more freedom, more education, and more power, they have become less happy."
Progressives do not believe in evolution, or they would have seen this coming. They traded the science of evolution for the political theory that sexual differences are a social construct. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Sorry, these two theories are mutually exclusive. You will need to pick one, and only one.
"No longer does a man have to earn a woman’s love before she’ll give him what he most desires. She freely gives something for nothing, as though she isn’t worth the investment, or as though she too is as capable of sex without strings. She’ll even live with her man with no promise of a future.
Talk about undermining your own cause."
Ok, so, the men won the cultural wars, I can live with that, and while I was single I enjoyed every minute of that win.
"When women listened to feminists and decided to live like men, they didn't think it through. The concept of equality may work fine in the professional realm, but in the personal realm -- where love resides -- it’s a spectacular failure. The concept of equality demands that men and women live identical lives. It requires them to compete with one another. It forces them to keep score.
Love is unsustainable under those conditions.
Since time immemorial, women have been the relationship navigators, the ones who steer the ship. And for the last 40 years, they've been steering that ship into icebergs because the feminist narrative is antithetical to love.
A woman’s true value lies in the way she was made. She doesn’t need to change anything or to prove anything in order to be worthy or happy. She only needs to embrace it."
Kinda. The first paragraph is fine, the second mostly correct but it assumes facts not in evidence. The third is wrong. The fourth hits the mark again.
The problem with the second and third is the same, it is not the woman who navigates the relationship, it is the man. The woman act as a relationship brake.
While men have a greater ability to stand up to peer pressures than do women, they also have the propensity to over shoot the mark. This is simply because the male culture is different from female.
Generally, women are more cooperative, and seek to work in collaborative groups where consensus is highly important. Women in these groups must nearly always come to an agreement to function well.
Men work in much more anarchic groups where skills alone are valued, and viewed objectively. Men do not need to agree to work well together, each must only respect the others skills, and abilities, and defer to others when other skills are at the fore. When in groups men zealously guard their roles and have little difficulty defining their space.
In essence, women are more willing to conform their beliefs, even morals to the larger group, while men are not.
It is interesting but when men and women are together each is softened and adopt's allowances for the others behavior. It is because of this that a man is willing to achieve consensus with his wife, and a woman is willing to broach open conflict with her husband.
Men must steer the family ship, but the woman's role is equally necessary. The woman must nurture the man, support him, and act as the brake, ensuring he apply due diligence before making decisions. Truly excellent women also help him expand his thinking and abilities. This relationship is binary. One cannot function optimally without the other.
Only someone who does not believe in evolution (or God, you choose, I do not care) could fall into the trap of believing that sexual differences are social constructs. Evolution (or God) does not create social constructs, wacky fuzzy thinking progressives do.
Women's liberation will only happen once women realize their highest purpose and seek to optimize that while still achieving the other prioritized goals in their lives. The same thing applies to men, and many men will feel left out by the current failure of men to aggressively push back against the feminization of the marital relationship.
