Feminizing America

By Chuck Baldwin

The Covenant News ~ April 5, 2002

Recent news reports stated that one of the reasons President Bush decided to take a more active role in negotiating a peace settlement in the Middle East was because of his concern that women voters were being "turned off" by pictures of dead bodies from war-torn areas in and around the West Bank. Keeping women voters happy seems to be a high priority for politicians these days, and for good reason - America is now a thoroughly feminized country.

Subscribe to any cable or satellite service and one will discover an abundance of women's channels. Do these channels promote traditional femininity? No. They promote radical feminism instead. At the same time, trying to find a men's channel is an exercise in futility, because it does not exist.

To find a masculine president, one has to go back to Ronald Reagan. Before that, however, the vast majority of U.S. presidents, Republican and Democrat, exuded masculinity and manliness. Those days are over.

Today, women must be appeased and catered to. They are the heads of businesses, the heads of churches, and the heads of their homes. In politics, the women's vote is usually the one that turns the election. Women serve on military ships and in military operations. They dictate their children's upbringing (which explains why most of them grow up undisciplined and spoiled, by the way) and have the final word on virtually all family decisions. Such a phenomenon is the sign of a nation in trouble. God's prophet warned that one of the marks of a nation under divine judgment is when "women rule over them." (Isa. 3:12)

The exact cause of the feminizing of America is difficult to pinpoint. Did radical feminism cause men to abandon their God-given responsibilities, or did that abandonment create the vacuum from which radical feminism grew? It is the old chicken or the egg question. However, one thing is sure: men have abandoned their responsibilities of leadership, and our nation is going down the tubes because of it.

In the black community, the vast majority of children are being raised without a father. The white community is not far behind. Furthermore, in those homes where fathers do exist, they are largely detached and provide no real influence. Mom is in charge, and everybody in the household knows it. It was not always this way, however.

There was a time in this nation when rugged men taught their sons the qualities of manhood. Boys grew up learning how to box, how to wrestle, how to play football, etc. Today, America's boys only know how to play girls' games. They have never had their noses bloodied or their butts bruised. "Soccer Moms" have replaced disciplinarian dads.

Then again, there was a time when a man's primary interest was not in guzzling a pack of Budweiser and sitting all evening in front of the "boob tube" while ignoring virtually everyone in the house. There was a time when men took their families to church and taught their children the fundamental values of honesty and integrity. Believe it or not, there was a time in America when men took pride in being the spiritual heads of their homes. They actually knew how to balance a checkbook and how to read the Good Book. They were the kind of men that women loved and children respected.

However, the feminization of America is so complete, so thorough, that I am not certain if old-fashioned, masculine men are even desirable anymore. You would not know it by looking at our politicians, or our preachers, that is for sure. Therefore, President Bush (and everyone else) will continue to appease the feminist majority (male and female) that comprises this new, feminized America.

I read this over the weekend and it provoked a good deal of thought. I would value your comments and thoughts as well.

Democracy inherently favors women, because women outnumber men by a 51-49% ratio, and women vote more often than men. Also, mass media outlets are dominated by feminized men. Feminized men in mass media include homosexuals and men reared in maternally dominated cultures. Feminist propaganda saturates television, movies, and big city newspapers because homosexuals, and men that were reared as a child in maternal cultural values, are running these industries.

All of Isaiah 3 is appropriate here:

[1] For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,
[2] The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,
[3] The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counseller, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
[4] And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
[5] And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.
[6] When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:
[7] In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.
[8] For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.
[9] The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
[10] Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
[11] Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
[12] As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
[13] The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
[14] The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
[15] What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the LORD GOD of hosts.
[16] Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
[17] Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
[18] In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
[19] The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
[20] The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
[21] The rings, and nose jewels,
[22] The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
[23] The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
[24] And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
[25] Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
[26] And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.

How like America.

Great article. Thanks for posting it.

Maybe this is the "kinder and gentler" nation that DaddyBush promised us. The decline in American masculinity started when the women abandoned their posts as Mothers and entered the working world so that they could find out "who they really are".

Don't get me wrong, I am not anti-woman. In fact, I've been married to one nearly 25 years. Face it, women just don't make good Dads, period!

Our three sons grew up spending their summers in the logging camps of the Northwest. Instead of spending their summers in front of the TV, they fished, hunted, panned for gold, built campfires, dealt with problem bears coming into camp and unwelcome rattlesnakes. In other words, an environment where where men and women stood by their word and convictions at all cost. A world where men would get injured, lick their wounds and still show up for work at 5 a.m. the next day. Why, because we had to feed the family and pay the bills. Because we were men.

I had to get a good chuckle out of this because there are more sports channels on my cable then there are women's channels (which I avoid like the plague).

The exact cause of the feminizing of America is difficult to pinpoint.

The exact cause is original sin, but the more proximate cause is technological -- the birth control pill. The "pill" has freed women from their primary biological and theological purpose -- procreation.

Until 1930, every Christian denomination taught that artificial contraception was gravely immoral. After the Anglicans said artificial contraception was OK at their Lambeth Conference in that year, all the Protestant churches changed their teaching, and the rest is history.

Oh, and by the way, the pill is an abortifacient. It kills a living human being (very tiny to be sure) a small percentage of the time by making the womb reject the united sperm and egg (embryo). If you don't believe this, check it out in the Physician's Desk Reference located in most libraries. The fact that the medical community and the church have hidden this fact is testimony to the diabolical nature of the issue.

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil." (Isaiah 5:20)

It's not that we don't approve of the Lifetime channel. It's that God doesn't approve of the Lifetime channel. And that, my dear, is a viewer rating to be concerned about.

What bunk. This sissy man doesn't even have the balls to come out and say what he means... that he wants to repeal the 19th Ammendment. And HE has the nerve to decry the loss of masculinity?

If he was a REAL man he'd get out and publically campaign for such a constitutional ammendment repealing the 19th Ammendment and all other laws granting women equality in society. He'd come up with a plad for what he envisions would be better, instead of whine and complain and blame others.

Instead, he prefers to be a cowardly whiny little boy instead of formulate a plan and act on it.

This justifies the thesis of the article. The author is writing in philosophical and theoretical terms. The context is purely observational and cerebral. L responds with emotion and attacks the author on the basis of a construct which was never intended.

I am sure, however, that she did it "For the children."
