Carolina (who's a woman mind you, and a very wise one at that) took the words right out of my mouth and said something that I sometimes whisper in the silence of my heart when I feel particularly brave. And it's pretty darn good that a woman, and a brilliantly insightful one at that, said it too. Imagine what would happen if a man were so say something like that. Hell hath no fury would be putting it lightly. My grandmother would kick me out of the house. Not that I would not deserve it for insinuating such a blatant untruth.
But before I get labelled a male chauvinist, lets see what Carolina actually says.
Firstly, for the context:
Men are evil!
At least that is what they are teaching my son at daycare. Yesterday when I picked him up there were notices distributed to each parent about what was 'appropriate play'. Here is their list of 'bad play' that's not to be tolerated or allowed.
No good guy/bad guy role playAnd then, she comes to the very true conclusion:
No cops/robbers role play
No cowboys/Indians role play
No pretending to be monsters
No pretending to be soldiers
All aggressive behavior is inappropriate and violent.
Women ruin everything!
Basically they have nixed any behavior that is remotely masculine. I have a real problem with someone telling my son that playing like a boy is something bad 'violent' 'aggressive' and must not be tolerated.
The problem is that my son's center is run by women... all women. There are NO MEN at all. Right now I feel like women ruin everything. Women ruined the Church, women are ruining the education systems, the government, the work force. There are seeping it with politically correct phrasing, perfume, doilies and squelching all forms competition and competitiveness.Read it all here.
Its a very well known fact that if you want men to lose interest in something, get a bunch of women involved. Women want every one to play nice. All playing nice has gotten us is a bunch metro-sexual feminized men that have a sense of entitlement and won't be able to defend their women and country from a full islamic take over.
Women want their men to behave like ladies, and they themselves want to be liberalised ball busters. What happened? Oh, Yeah. The sexual revolution & women's lib. Yawn.
Here's my take. Personally I think feminists are off their rockers too, especially when they attack the Church. And here's why.
Feminists think that women can be truly and fully liberated only when the become what they hate, namely, men. Ironic isn't it?
No offense, but they started out wanting women to wear men's clothes, do men's jobs, etc. Basically, they measure their self worth by benchmarking themselves to men. The message that they are sending out is that women are only fully actualized when they can do all that a man can.
And as most men can tell you, that not very much of a goal cos we men really can't do that much. =) The things that make women women, feminine, are derided. Child bearing, motherhood and all that are dissed as signs of oppression. That's just utter bollocks.
Here's where the Church comes in and proclaims such a liberating message to women. A truly revolutionary message in our time and age:
Women, you don't have to be like men to have self worth. That dignity comes from being a child of God, made in his image and likeness.
Be womanly and feminine, and be proud of it! Let your feminine genius shine.
In God's image and likeness, male and female He made them, to complement each other so that the two can be one.
Wow! What a wonderfully and truly liberating message. Be yourself, be a child of God, and for God's sakes, be happy.
Chalk one up for Holy Mother Church and for her faithful son, Pope John Paul II.
Tell me what you think.
This is a very rushed post.
