Women are angry at Brett Kavanaugh. To them, I ask: do you know why you’re angry?
Suicide is on the rise in America, especially among our country’s girls. According to CDC data, suicide among teenage girls rose 70% in the past decade. This is a 40-year high. Across all genders and ages, suicide has increased 28% since 1999.
I propose the uptick of suicide in America—especially among our young women—is connected to the war against men that is unfolding on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Because, as the great G.K. Chesterton wrote, all wars are motivated by “love” or “hatred,” and never by economics.
Why don’t our girls feel loved by American culture?
American women are freer and have more opportunities than ever. Economically, it’s old-news to report Pew’s 2013 findings (confirmed by Gallup in 2018) that Millennial women are at near-parity with men in terms of salary. Female CEOs of S&P 500 companies actually make more than men. Unfortunately, the so-called feminist movement never reports these truths.
But, more than ever, women are screaming in the streets as if they have no opportunities and no respect from society, especially men. Many of these women may indeed have been hurt by the cruel behavior of a man. But angry words will not heal their wounds, or reform their offenders.
Shaking fists, screaming and stamping—young women are shouting: “We’re angry! Kava-Nope! We believe all survivors!” My concern is that they have given up on learning American history, including whyour founding fathers risked everything—including death—for the sake of establishing a country that upholds Biblical values and true freedom.
I believe these women are unhappy because they do not feel loved. Love is based in truth and selflessness. And our liberal, secular society lies to our youth—telling them that they will only know they are “loved” when they have three things: 1.) Pleasure, 2.) Power, and 3.) Prestige.
Because this trifecta—pleasure, power and prestige—is very hard to obtain and always leaves us wanting more, when we seek these “goals” we end up feeling worthless.
Intolerance is Kindness
I recently read two great documents on intolerance: Everlasting Man by GK Chesterton and A Plea for Intolerance by Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
“America… is suffering from tolerance,” Sheen writes. We see this in “the readiness of many minds to accept as an authority in any field an individual who becomes a famous authority in one particular field. …[But] there is a limit to the transfer of training, and no one who paints beautiful pictures with his right hand can, in a day and at the suggestion of a reporter, paint an equally good one with his left hand.
Chesterton adds that Christianity was intolerable [by the world] because it was intolerant [of the world]. It did not try to destroy all that creation of gold and marvel, but, it imagined a world without it.
Sheen defines intolerance as admitting the truths that we see before us and refusingas is so common todayto ask a celebrity like Madonna or a college professor like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford what she thinks about political policy, and assume shes correct because shes an accomplished singer or academic.
Our young girls have fallen for the lie that an Instagram celebrity knows more about life than their parents, pastors or grandparents.
Our young men have been sold the lie that theyll never have a fulfilling relationship with a woman because nothing compares to the total control, lack of commitment and hyper-affirmation in porn. But TIME reported in 2016 how many young men are speaking out and educating others on the risks to health and happiness of engaging in sexually explicit material.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like [h]corruptible manand birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [i]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
Social media has to have some blame for the increase in suicides.
Striving for all will only lead to jealousy and disappointment. Nobody has it all.
Missing fathers, working mothers, no husbands and abortions.
What is worth living for in their world?
All of it contributes.
Boys and girls really need to be raised together, under chaperoned situations, from a very young age. Otherwise, when they are of mating age, they just don’t know how, and finding a mate is much more difficult.
Liberals have stolen their happiness and replaced it with fear and hate.
Decent article - thanks.
How sadly true.
2 Timothy 4:3 kjv
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
It goes deeper than not being loved. The liberals have worked hard to remove God or even the concept of a god, from all public exposure. So many of these girls do not have a relationship with God.
They look around them and all they see is this world. Even as good as it is this world is still a hellhole. So what do they have to hope for.
If there is no God there is no heaven so this is as good as it will ever get for them.
And if there is no God then there is no hell so there is no punishment for just checking out.
