Women set the standards for relationships.

Leighton-Courtship

I have a secret shame and it’s called 19 Kids and Counting. I’m a big fan of the show. There is something so intriguing about the private life of a family with 19 children, and even more so now that the older daughters have started courting and marrying young gentlemen. I find myself waiting impatiently for the next episodes to come out because Jill’s courtship with Derick and Jessa’s with Ben are so adorably sweet. They side-hug. They go out on dates. ...

Are you a Feminist?

old lady

A few months ago I took an online survey called Are you a feminist? I eagerly clicked through the questions because, in all honesty, I did not know the answer. I am a 30-something married woman. I work part time outside my home and the rest of the time within it (I don’t have a side business—I’m a homemaker without kids). I love my husband. I am generally not angry. I am a practicing Catholic (which may de facto exclude me from flying the ... (Continue reading)

Women in combat

Titian_-_Polyptych_of_the_Resurrection_-_Virgin_Annunciate_-_WGA22786

Have you noticed there are an alarming number of combative females on television? I am not talking about women who are angry at everything but rather women who play “tough-guy” characters. The men are the calm writers or the slackers who need protection—while the women get their butts kicked by the bad guys, run headfirst into burning buildings, and call their female supervisors “sir.” The trend has been growing since before Uma Thurman “Killed Bill,” but it is alarming to ...

A feminine genius responds to Jimmy Carter

joan-of-arc

Jimmy Carter, the thirty-ninth president of the United States, is making the media rounds pedalling his new book: A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power. The description on Amazon reads: A Call to Action addresses the suffering inflicted upon women by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare. Key verses are often omitted or quoted out of context by male religious leaders to exalt the status of men and exclude women. ... (Continue reading)

Should Women be Educated?

The topic of women’s education has been making the social media rounds and I’m sure more than a few feminists have flown into fits of rage because of it. The whole thing seems to have started with a blog post touting eight reasons parents should not send their girls, specifically, to college. They reasons are the following: She will attract the wrong type of man (only good-for-nothing men go to university). She will be in the near occasion of sin (universities are dens of ...

Am I dumb because I have eight kids?

The Guardian UK recently published the article "Should we care that smart women aren't having kids?" The piece was based on the work of Satoshi Kanazawa, a London School of Economics psychologist who conducted research on the link between intelligence and maternal urges and wrote the book The Intelligence Paradox based on his findings. He concluded that the higher a woman's IQ, the less likely she is to have babies. According to Kanazawa's research, maternal urges decrease 25% for every 15 IQ points ... (Continue reading)

Sexual Revolevolution

While cycling through my blogroll the other day, I ended up being linked to an an article in The Telegraph. It starts out with quite a bang: A friend’s daughter recently started at a highly regarded boarding school. When her mother asked how she was enjoying the mixed-sex environment, the girl said quietly: “You have to give the boys oral sex or they get cross.” Reeling with shock, the mum protested that her darling daughter did not have to do ...

“This is MY Body—But I Don’t Want It!”

From the CCBR blog. Fellow feminists, In case you haven't noticed, women (or "womyn," if you prefer) are immensely powerful. And I'm not just talking "Lady Macbeth" meets "Charlie's Angels." While there is something to be said about feminine beauty and strength, our power lies in the very thing that makes us fundamentally different from men. In case you need a reminder, it's that women have the extraordinary ability to help create and facilitate the development of another human being—inside her ... (Continue reading)

Nuns on the Bus

Ah, Nuns on the Bus. What a fantastic, dedicated, orthodox pillar of Catholicism this group is. It abides by the Magisterium, is obedient to the Pope, and is doctrinally sound. Oh, wait. It's not. Nuns on the Bus is made up of the liberal-progressive leftovers of the 1960s feminist movement, armed to the teeth with propaganda that has no economic, factual, or religious truth. The nuns denounce GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan, saying the Ryan Budget ... (Continue reading)
