Feminists: Here is Someone You Will Enjoy Meeting!
And wouldn't you just LOVE to be "who you were meant to be"??
The authoress of this blog is a young traditional Christian woman whose second "gift from God" is slated for arrival in June of 2008. As per this, her response is "yay!"
But here is the link:
The blog contains a number of articles which I am absolutely certain that feminists will ever-so-much enjoy reading, such as: How to Submit to Your Husband, How to Become a Stay-at-Home Mom, How to Revive a Sourdough Starter Gone Bad, Struggling at Homemaking and, The Role of the Wife.
Now, Wife of Faith makes it perfectly clear that she considers feminism a lousy idea. However, within the operative continuum of "hate the sin but love the sinner", she makes it equally clear that she isn't "out to get" feminists. In a post entitled "Disclaimer on Feminism", she says this:
"Another term that gets thrown around is counter-feminist. While this one is not as implicating, the people who associate themselves with this term have taken a malicious stance toward feminists, something I find appalling. For example, see this excerpt from a headliner on the Counter-Feminist blog:
'The female-supremacist hate movement called 'feminism' must be opened to the disinfecting sunlight of the world's gaze and held to a stern accounting for its grievous transgressions. This 'feminism'...must be mocked and rudely handled, analyzed, picked apart, and mobilized against.'
Feminism is a serious matter that does need to be addressed, but should be done so in a loving manner with compassion for the women mixed up in it. Only when we submit fully to God and His plan for us can we truly utilize all of our gifts as women."
Well. It is absolutely plain to me that Wife of Faith wants no traffic with the MRA crowd.
But do you know what I say to that? I say: fine!
I have no problem with that. I have no objection to that. I think that's cool!
Yes, I respect that!
And I should think that you feminists would likewise respect that. Come on, you don't really want to hob-nob with all those nasty MRAs and CFACs, do you? In fact, I surely can't imagine why you wouldn't eagerly embrace the companionship of Wife of Faith and her spiritual kindred—they're out there if you dig around! They'll welcome you with open arms and Christian charity, and with every manifestation of sisterhood that your heart could desire! And you may be certain that they will happily share with you "God's Plan for us", and guide you in submitting fully so that you can truly utilize all your gifts as women! Hey, that sounds like a mighty sweet deal if you ask me!
Or is it possible that their embrace carries some manner of price tag not much to your liking...eh? I mean, only you would know—but it's always a possibility.
Well in that case, you can always nip back here for a neighborly chat with little old ME! Sure, I admit that I don't write articles encouragaing you to submit to your husband, but hey..... who's perfect?
But seriously: as the movement against feminism grows and grows, there will come a time when you will need to open negotiations with our side. And when that day arrives, WHO upon the big broad spectrum of non-feminism WILL you parlay with?
I'm not asking you this for my sake; I'm asking you to ask yourself this for your OWN sake!
Think about it, okay?
Update: Wife of Faith appears to have deleted the blog post in question—I can't say how long ago, since I have only just discovered this.
