The Effects of Emasculation (And Slutty Wimmyn)

The following video has some harsh language. Bu~uut, it’s also 100% True and made me LOL several times. Ladies take note: The behavior exhibited by the female-types in this video is a fine lesson in How To Never Behave, compled with: How to Never Treat Other Humans.

Ah, part 2

Speaking of Contraception . . .

The Anchoress points out a surprising source for support of the Church’s teaching re: Birth Control– Business Insider, of all places!

Here’s a tasty bit:

Today’s injunctions against birth control were re-affirmed in a 1968 document by Pope Paul VI called Humanae VitaeHe warned of four results if the widespread use of contraceptives was accepted:

  1. General lowering of moral standards
  2. A rise in infidelity, and illegitimacy
  3. The reduction of women to objects used to satisfy men. 
  4. Government coercion in reproductive matters. 

Does that sound familiar? 

Because it sure sounds like what’s been happening for the past 40 years.

As is said, read the whole thing!

To be honest, I used to be a lot more laissez-faire about the issue myself. After all, if God wanted you to have a kid, it would happen– both myself and my little brother were conceived while our mother was using birth control.

Death of a Sexist

Barbara Kay has written what will likely be the most honest obituary for Mary Daly over at PJMedia. I didn’t even know Daly was dead, but in retrospect, I give a little sigh of relief. Thank God that’s over.

Back in college, I fancied myself a bit of a “feminist theologian.” Granted, my major was Music Ed, specializing in voice, but all my friends were Theology Majors and I read and wrote enough on the subject that one might be generous and say I had an unofficial Minor in the subject. [These friends are now working on Doctorates in Theology, so I bow to their greater learning as occasion warrants.] Feminist Theology was, looking back, the first step on a journey through a land of strange, twisted realities. In other writings of mine, I’ve referred to these areas of thought as The Wastelands. Yeah, and all that name implies . . . but all of that will be subjects for other posts.

What eventually drove me away from the “Feminist” lavel of any sort was the pervasive misandry exhibited in “feminist” writings, speech and behavior. While I myself was (and still am) for equality between women and men, I never believed that women were ever any better than men. In addition, I’m straight. I love men, not just in the sexual way, but also in all the platonic ways that our society either forgets or doesn’t believe in anymore.

Daly was a font of such ill-treatment of men, her sexist views trickling down to the layfolk in the form of words like “Patriarchy”, and “Goddess Spirituality.” Listen, I know from “Goddess Spirituality”– for a time, I lived it. It was usually shallow and self-serving, an excuse to stop striving, stop seeking to be better. Those who chased after depth couldn’t last long in such an environment. Sometimes they kept the image of “Goddess Spirituality” while finding tradition and, therefore, some depth– I call to mind M. Isadora Forrest, author of Isis Magic, who dealt with actual Egyptian beliefs regarding Isis, and for whom I still bear some respect. But even then, at what I consider the best of “Goddess Spirituality”, there is an ultimate stasis, a point beyond which the endless cycling cannot take you. You go full circle, and start over and over again, no change, no progress. Unless, of course, you are of the few self-driven seekers who will not accept such stasis. . .

Daly harmed not just men with her hatred, but women as well. Nothing good can come of dividing humanity one half against the other. Too many women followed Daly’s paths and still haven’t realized that there’s no there there. They use misandry as a crutch, a way to feel “empowered” by tearing down those who are the most fundamentally different than themselves. The woman who follows Daly never has to confront her own imperfections, the places where she lacks, and so never has the chance to improve herself.

I am glad I left such “Feminism” in the dust. It is a trap for the unwary seeker, the first of many through the Wastes, but one which a sad number still have not yet freed themselves of.

Perhaps, with the death of this hate-steeped woman, and the rise of a newer generation of women that do not share this hatred, we sill see an end to this faulty, stupid way of thinking and being.

A Letter from 9 GOP Congresswomen

I dunno how I feel about this. One the one hand, I’m all for almost anything that stops Obamacare. On the other hand, the opening paragraphs make me queasy. Read it at PJ Media.

What gets me in these first paragraphs is this:

As we reflect on what the past year has meant for our families, it’s clear that President Obama’s policies are hitting women especially hard.

Since the president took office on January 20, about one million women have lost their jobs and today the unemployment rate among women is at the highest level in over 25 years. But perhaps most concerning of all, the president’s economic policies have severely harmed the small business community, which has traditionally been the part of our economy that propels us out of recession and is increasingly being used by women as a means of career advancement and financial independence.

. . . Um, they ain’t calling it a “Man-cession” for nothing, you know. . . As the comments below the post state: “World Ends, Women hit hardest“. Geez, can we ever get over the victim mentality? Especially when there are legitimate beefs to be had? Listen, when it comes to this recession, it’s quite clear that, in the most direct sense, Men are the hardest hit. And this disparity is disturbing, because there shouldn’t be such an obvious disparity that it’s named a Man-cession.

The letter goes on to state some legitimate concerns over the change in mammogram guidelines, and what this means for state-subsidized mammogram programs for struggling wome. This is a legitimate concern, as insurance companies often follow this same direction. If I were an insurance company, I probably would . . .

They should have brought the letter to me for editing, clearly. I would have cut the first two paragraphs,and re-worded a lot of the rest. I think I see what they’re trying to do, but the effort comes across as something I wrote in undergrad. *shrugs*. Who knows, though, whom it might influence. . .

The Misandry Bubble

One of my ongoing concerns in life is the treatment of men in America. Since leaving the festering swamp of New Orle Academia, I have become more and more concerned with the current state of men in our great nation, becoming ever more disgusted with the appalling lack of respect men garner from society, and “feminists” in particular. I once called myself a “feminist”– until I met with the Women’s Studies bunch at college– a bunch of women who hated men, pitied me for being straight, and couldn’t understand at all why I was bothering with being Catholic. This even though it was a Catholic institution. I wasn’t much of a feminist, in retrospect. My concern was my lack of understanding as to why women couldn’t be ordained to the priesthood (I’ve since come to a personal understanding), so I considered myself a feminist in the theological genre. I’ve never been “Pro-Choice”, nor did I appreciate bake sales that charged men more for an item than women. I was a crappy feminist, but I’m glad to finally be glad of those delusions.

I love men. I respect men. Straight or Gay, Alpha or Beta, I respect men for being men, for being complementary to women in a way that this woman will never truly fathom, but will always be grateful for. I have completely thrown away the idea that men and women are (or should be) the same, believing now that we are complementary beings–different, but overall equal. In and Yo (that is to say, Yin and Yang), Night and Day, Active and Passive–Equal, but Different. The division of labor by sex was the first step to civilization, for good reasons. Denying the basic, general, differences between men and women ultimately undermines that very first step of civilization, and thus so many of the problems we now face.

Over at The Futurist, GK has written an excellent article on The Misandry Bubble, which I highly recommend. I’ll need some time to think about it some more, but he’s hit quite a few of the concerns I’ve had. Especially as an introverted single woman living just outside the city who would like to find a husband and start a family.

I’ll want to read and digest his reading list before really commenting further, but as this will likely be a topic coming up again, this is an excellent start.
