The human species is no longer ‘special’.
The civil, advanced natural order of male protecting the female; mother of his offspring has morphed into packs of hyenas.
God is not amused.
Be careful what you wish for bump
Another reason is the current state of divorce laws and the family court system. Put simply, for a man to marry these days carries large risks. Meanwhile, men can get many of the benefits of marriage outside of marriage. For many, marriage seems like a unattractive deal.
Stay home moms used to be the norm. Homes and kids were clean, the family was healthy, the schools stuck to academics, and the neighborhoods were safe because there was a mom behind every door. Jobs were plentiful, because only one member of the family had to work.
Taxes were much, much lower, so dad brought home most of his paycheck. Welfare was minimal, and seeking work was required. That made the whole community strong.
Today, a woman is left alone to work two jobs and do everything herself. The kids are being raised by the indoctrinators in the unionized schools, and they're growing up to be self centered animals. They're sickly, and dumber than a box of rocks.
Most woman have to collect some type of public check (which is why they're a democrat voting block), because they can't give 100% to a job.
Their homes are a mess. There's a 50% divorce rate because the woman expects the man to do what she used to do, but not all men choose to do mommies work as well as their own.
The neighbor hoods have become hunting grounds for every perve known to man. Kids cannot safely play outside anymore.
It's a mess. Mommy is no longer home. She's too busy slaving away just to survive, and spending what she makes (if she actually has a job) on herself to make herself feel better about what she's become.
The stay home moms are the ones who have it made. They're the ones who didn't fall for the big lie. They're happy, their kids are happy, their husbands are happy, and everything is fine.
I've worn both shoes. It wasn't long before the "liberated" shoes came off! I'l choose staying home and caring for my family anyday!
One would presume the men are having sex with women for the most part. If women abstain, I guess by default, men will abstain as well.
I would add a fifth awful legacy of feminism: the concurrent masculinization of women. While men are encouraged to become more like women, women are encouraged to become more like the characteristics that we are told to disdain in men. To be more aggressive and less nurturing. Consider the issue of abortion. It is not normal for a mother to order the violent death of her unborn child. But that is exactly what Feminism tells women to do. Killing their child is touted as a “right” that is to be exercised without so much as a blip on the woman's emotional radar screen.
I couldn’t agree with this article more. I have had many discussions with my 18 year old daughter about the choices that I’ve made over my life. I grew up being fed the women’s lib line of bull. I went to college, chose to work outside the home, got married and had a family, and continued to work out side the home.
In light of my own life experience, I would like to add one more problem created by the women’s lib movement: It has created a large population of women who have so many roles and responsibilities (ie., being a wife, mother, employee, volunteer, etc...) that it’s difficult to enjoy or excell at any of their roles.
JMHO, of course...
For the first legacy I completely agree that demeaning the concept of marriage and promoting promiscuity has been disastrous. How could condemning women to single motherhood, where they have to do all the work without the possibility of a committed relationship, possibly “empower” them? The Sexual Revolution has brought us nothing except generations of fatherless children and an explosion of STDs. The feminists did have a point when they pointed out the double standard that punished promiscuous women more than it did promiscuous men. Unfortunately they chose to lower the standards for women rather than raise them for men. I’m glad I’ve never had premarital sex. I would never be able to respect myself if I did.
I’m not so sure about the second legacy. Couples who rush into marriage without really getting to know one another are often unhappy and are more likely to divorce. There needs to be a happy medium between expecting people to get married in their 40’s and expecting people to get married in their teens. Teenagers and some early twenty-somethings are simply not yet mature enough to understand the importance of commitment.
As for the third legacy I agree that a two-parent family with one parent staying at home is the ideal family structure but I don’t see why it always has to be the woman that stays home. It all depends on the individual: some men are naturally more caring and nurturing than some women. To me which parent stays home is a private matter between husband and wife that should be decided based on the preferences, earning potential, and individual temperaments of both. And not everyone has to have a family. Remaining single, celibate, and sane has worked for me, even though I can understand why some people would want the companionship of marriage.
