I see women getting pregnant in their forties… I see women who choose THUGS or deeply troubled men as the fathers of their children, knowing they can easily replace them with the State, I see mothers completely incapable of being in control of their own children, single mothers who then keep dating and dating, thus exposing their children to great risks and instability, I see women constantly disrespecting their husband, saying bad things about their husband, with or without him being there and while thinking it’s funny and cool to do so; I see women considering pets and looks more important than their own children and I hear them say that they don’t want to be “baby machines”, as if that was inevitable nowadays and as if motherhood was a bad thing; I see women demanding free abortions and the right to kill their own babies.
What is wrong with us?
I am all in favor of people being able to make their own choices and I am grateful and very happy that the men in our society have allowed us to choose how to live our lives, this is a great gift that many before us couldn’t afford and many still can’t, whether because they live in a pre-capitalistic/pre-technology society or simply in a culture that is stuck in the Medieval times. I just can’t believe that women now make choices in such a short-sighted, selfish and irresponsible way.
Getting pregnant so late by choice is insane: your body is not strong nor flexible as it used to be, you lack energy, stamina as Trump would say, you expose yourself and the baby to health problems and everything is harder, from conceiving to recovering from birth to being able to give yourself so completely as a baby requires you to do. And what about the child: that child will likely have no siblings and will have to bear the responsibility of taking care of you in your old age when he’s still so young and should be focusing on building his own life! What a burden for your child! And so many women in their 40s and 50s go through health problems, even cancer. What if you only get to spend 10 years with your child? What will happen to him? And don’t you have the desire of seeing him grow, maybe be a grandmother to his own children one day? Time to me is so precious. I would do anything to have one more day, one more with my family.
As women, our first responsibility is towards our children. We can’t let just anybody be the father. Or ignore the father altogether. That baby never asked to be born, to go through life and experience pain and one day die. We make the choice of bringing them into this world, we have the duty of giving them the best life possible and make it so that when they grow up they can be an asset, rather than a burden, to other people and themselves. You can’t keep getting pregnant by a man who is a criminal, or mentally ill or even genetically “dubious”. Genetic issues are carried on. I mean you can make these choices, but you need to be aware of what you’re doing to the child, to your family and to the future of society and be ready to face the consequences. Does the risk of autism increase in case of late pregnancies? Does having a child with a man who has very low IQ or genetic “flaws” affect the IQ or genetic pool of the child? Why is it nobody ever talks about this?
No State can replace a father. A father is much more than a wallet. It has to do with the inherent qualities of manhood. He provides guidance, leadership, authority, balance, strong values and support, both psychological and financial. A child needs his father. I can’t speak for fathers, but I would assume that fathers need to be able to be close to their children, they are his children just as much as they are their mother’s. A principled, honorable woman could never keep a child and his father apart. (Unless there is real danger coming from him. In that case, the woman must do whatever it takes to leave and protect the child.)
Why is it women don’t look up to men anymore? I remember both my grandmothers almost idolizing their husband, respecting their leadership and plainly admiring them and appreciating them greatly. And the combination of a man’s and a woman’s qualities seemed to work very well, one balancing the other, counteracting each other’s flaws. But now honorable manhood has been banned and what a sad, dangerous, empty place our world has become.
For a woman qua woman, the essence of femininity is hero-worship—the desire to look up to man. “To look up” does not mean dependence, obedience or anything implying inferiority. It means an intense kind of admiration; and admiration is an emotion that can be experienced only by a person of strong character and independent value-judgments. A “clinging vine” type of woman is not an admirer, but an exploiter of men. Hero-worship is a demanding virtue: a woman has to be worthy of it and of the hero she worships. Intellectually and morally, i.e., as a human being, she has to be his equal; then the object of her worship is specifically his masculinity, not any human virtue she might lack.
This does not mean that a feminine woman feels or projects hero-worship for any and every individual man; as human beings, many of them may, in fact, be her inferiors. Her worship is an abstract emotion for the metaphysical concept of masculinity as such—which she experiences fully and concretely only for the man she loves, but which colors her attitude toward all men. This does not mean that there is a romantic or sexual intention in her attitude toward all men; quite the contrary: the higher her view of masculinity, the more severely demanding her standards. It means that she never loses the awareness of her own sexual identity and theirs. It means that a properly feminine woman does not treat men as if she were their pal, sister, mother—or leader. Ayn Rand
I am not a fan of poetry, but two men (and in this case, on opposite sides) helping each other… That’s poetry.
“George Orwell said that some ideas are so foolish that only an intellectual could believe them, for no ordinary man could be such a fool. The record of twentieth century intellectuals was especially appalling in this regard. Scarcely a mass-murdering dictator of the twentieth century was without his intellectual supporters, not simply in his own country, but also in foreign democracies, where people were free to say whatever they wished. Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler all had their admirers, defenders and apologists among the intelligentsia in Western democratic nations, despite the fact that these dictators each ended up killing people of their own county on a scale unprecedented even by despotic regimes that preceded them.”
– T. Sowell, “Intellectuals and society”
The price for avoiding politics is being ruled by your inferiors.
“It is still your country. Do you know what your ancestors did to build a country whose freedoms that remain you still enjoy? Do you know who they had to fight and what they had to do to deliver to you with their dying shaking hands the liberties that you pretend to celebrate? Do you know what your responsibility is? Your responsibility is to preserve and hopefully extend those freedoms to pass the gift on to your children that was given to you.”
Theresa May is going to be the next Prime Minister.
Anti-feminist Andrea Leadsom has quit. She was the one who had campaigned pro Brexit, but the party preferred May (a Remainer). Why did Cameron even bother quitting? Ms Leadsom has been attacked for being a mother and she showed she wasn’t strong enough to fight. May is a feminist, a Remainer and OK with sharia law. The political class is so detached from the people!
The governing party has just lost its leader because a majority of voters rejected his principal policy, British membership of the EU. It has loopily replaced him with a successor who *also* favours British membership of the EU.
It appears that the interview with Mrs Andrea Leadsom, which appeared in ‘The Times’ on Saturday ….(I have been struggling since to find any quotation from Mrs Leadsom which justifies the headline : ‘Being a mother gives me edge on May — Leadsom’ . I mean, I cannot find any words from her which contain this sentiment, which seems to me to be a problem given that it is so stated in the splash headline)…. seems to have frightened Mrs Leadsom into giving up her campaign for the Tory leadership.
And the media once again has sided with feminism…
Journalists are entitled, obligated in fact, to scrutinise candidates, their competence, their political record, what they have said in the past and proposed policies. What leaves such a bad taste in the mouth is the entrapment of a female politician on such a personal issue such as motherhood. Poor Leadsom, unschooled in the ways of the media and the political world, did not stand a chance.
The Times called mothers monsters. The elite doesn’t like the people, nor men, nor women who love men and children. Time to leave, not just the EU, leave England and all those countries who want to see (white) civilization dead and start over.
Arguing with anybody is hard. Being good at debating people is in fact an art, an ancient one, and it takes time and skills to master. The Greeks and the Romans considered it very important and it is, if you think of it as an evolutionary sign of human development, a step forward, because when there is rhetoric, it means conflicts are solved through dialogue rather than through physical violence.
If argument is an art which is hard to master, arguing with liberal is particularly frustrating and challenging, especially when the liberal opponent is a woman and I sympathize with all those who have tried it.
Some time ago I tried to engage in a conversation with a few liberal women and the experience was very disappointing and extremely frustrating. I will try to explain what happened and talk about how my opponents decided to deal with my comments.
The first time, I left a comment on a blog dedicated to the comparison between American English and British English by a female university professor. I used to find her posts interesting, but the one I had decided to reply to was different. It didn’t really have much to do with language, rather with… mansplaining. She said that she had left a sarcastic comment on a male professor’s blog and complained that the man hadn’t understood she was being sarcastic, so he explained (mansplained) again what he had written in the post. She thought he was being the “usual guy” who thinks the woman is stupid and feels the need to explain things to her. I found it disappointing that a professor, an intelligent, adult, well educated woman could be so irrational as to quickly assume that the man had explained himself (how dare he?) not because sarcasm doesn’t come across easily on the Internet, but because she’s a woman. So I told her about this in the comment and she replied in 2 ways: first, she did not believe I was a woman and said she regretted not activating the option that forces you to identify yourself if you want to post a comment and then she basically called the mob of her subscribers and directed them against me. Instead of addressing what I had said, she went for a personal attack, called for censorship, and went “collective mob” mode on me.
A few weeks later, a mom said her 4 year old boy was driving her family crazy with his bad behaviour and asked us other moms there if we could recommend a specialist. I decided to try again to join the conversation, so I replied to her that I didn’t recommend taking a little child to a specialist because a)it was probably a discipline problem that could have been fixed by using a different approach and b) nowadays specialists tend to put even little children on meds that ruin their lives and are therefore, in my opinion, a waste of time and money at best, very dangerous at worst. A conversation started, where this and other moms started “attacking” me. I added that before taking a little child to a specialist there were lots of options she could have tried. Back in the day, moms used to discipline their kids without any doctors or meds, and somehow, somehow!! they managed. I also said that in my experience, the dad does a better job at enforcing authority – moms don’t get taken seriously, whereas the dad does, and not because of spanking (I am not in favor of the initiation of force, unless if it’s for safe defence), just with the tone of his voice and the look on his face. The mom said she found my comment insulting, and that her husband wasn’t taken seriously at all by the child. I said it didn’t surprise me, because men nowadays don’t know how or don’t want to behave like Men, because if they did, their wives would call the cops on them or call them abusive monsters. The ladies didn’t like it. They said this made them cringe and it wasn’t all women’s fault (which I had never said). I went on trying to explain my point and some at least listened and seemed to understand, and when they stopped attacking me then went defensive: sometimes things go badly (my son had brain tumor! my kid is allergic to food coloring !!), they said, and cited extreme, rare cases in which a doctor is in fact needed or simply started defending women collectively, by saying sometimes the dad is not there, things happen, divorce happens, rape happens (???), we no longer have our grandparents’ support, blah blah. I said that things don’t just happen, everything is always a consequence of our choices and that victimhood takes responsibility away from you, brings you down as a human being because it removes agency and is simply an excuse. They didn’t like this either and instead of trying to understand what I was saying, they proceeded to insult me and isolate me.
I am surely not good at arguing either, but these ladies made me feel like a Greek philosopher compared to them! Even if this experience was very frustrating, I am not giving up on learning how to debate people: I want to improve and try really hard to stay rational and not go with feelings when I’m in a conversation, so I can think straight, because I find debating a valuable chance to potentially learn something new and I want to keep an open mind, but these ladies really tested my patience. Not to mention that they clearly didn’t read or listen to what I was saying, they were too busy feeling offended or listening to their feelings rather than to me, ignored the facts I was illustrating and used the victim card, then the guilt card (you’re a woman, you should be on our side) and resorted to slander and shaming. All this, with an emotional, irrational attitude plus an obnoxious or condescending tone, and of course virtue signalling and claiming the moral high ground.
So how do people do it? How do people debate liberal women? I surely have a lot to learn. And how did women become so intolerant to shaming? My grandparents’ generation was a lot more direct, used to be straight and sometimes say things and educate kids in a way that today would be considered bullying. But my parents’ generation instead gets triggered all the time and millennials are even worse. We surely need to do a better job with our children!
This is insane. Plain insane yet completely in line with what the Left/Big Government supporters always do: pushing for more control, more dependence on the State and more taxes, while pretending it’s for a humanitarian cause.
“It’s a backup plan I always know is there,” she says. “I don’t need to worry about having money on me. Even if it’s only 25 or 50 cents.”
Yes, you don’t have to worry about having money on yu, because someone else is paying for you. We pay, so you don’t have to.
Reality check: nothing is free. And no woman “needs” tampons (I have never used them and I’m 31, mother of 2, pregnant with 1). A woman may WANT tampons, in which case, she should pay for them herself. I have no problems with a charity group working to provide homeless women tampons, if that’s what they choose to do, voluntarily. Christian charities have been helping the people in need for the longest time. I have a problem with you expecting me to pay for your choices.
A girl actually had the gall of saying this:
“Having to leave class and worry about going around, asking for a tampon, or going to the nurse to wait to get what I need — all of that takes away from my education.”
Tampons are a human right! No they’re not! What’s next? Free cell phones for everybody?
My bad. I hadn’t realized we live in the USSR.
And then there is Madame Clinton, who’s always ready to pretend she cares about women, when it brings her votes.
Women’s health is an economic issue: Every woman deserves access to affordable menstrual products. Bravo, New York. http://nyti.ms/28OYuyj
Menstrual products will be available where they are desperately needed.
My grandmothers didn’t even have pads. They would use rags and wash them by hand (no washing machines either) in the bathtub every day, at that “stigmatized” time of the month – or rather, when the house they were living at had water and a bathroom, which only happened later on, when they were grown ups. And that was Italy in the Fifties.
“There are always a number of prostitutes in the square (…). Overnight one of these women had been lying on the ground crying bitterly, because a man had gone off without paying her fee, which was sixpence. Towards morning they do not even get sixpence, but only a cup of tea or a cigarette.”
G. Orwell, “Diaries”
