The modern feminist concept of mutual submission was brought up in the last post. The idea begs a definition.

Defining Mutual Submission
To start defining mutual submission, the modern feminist assumption that men and women are exactly equivalent is assumed:

In other words, they see men and women as wholly interchangeable, their differences as purposeless accidents that exist without reason, and any God-given hierarchy as something to be avoided. This mindset is otherwise known as egalitarianism. As was mentioned, this teaching came into Churchianity from secular feminism, who sees women as exactly equal to men in some cases and greater than men in others. It then found its voice in a religious expression as all feminist concepts do, from those who are desiring to wed their feminism to any form of Christian expression.

The basis of egalitarianism is discussed here, the concept of egalitarianism is debunked there, and…

Reblogged: Why women ruin everything

From Jim’s Blog:

“[Women] want to enter male spaces and make the space feminine, as a power play, not out of any interest in the things of value in that male space, which they inevitably destroy.

This is a key issue in gamergate, where feminists demand that the games should be no fun and no one should play them.

Women want to rule, even though it makes them unhappy – it is a fitness test.  They are looking for men that can defeat them, master them, and put them in their proper place.

[...] What women really want is to be allowed into a male place on subordinate and unequal terms, to be allowed to speak only if spoken to, and any male wishing to speak the them has to get the permission of their owner first.  They will fight like hell against this status, but if they win, they are unhappy, and if they lose, are happy.”

The most dangerous vice for women

In a spiritual formation class we work on how Christians can get victory over sin as a part of their spiritual growth. To start the unit I ask students to list the sins Christians face most today. They list four sins immediately:

Internet Porn
Pride
Lust
Anger

Then they pause…they run out of sins…At the pause I usually ask, “OK, for each sin on our list let’s decide as a class if men or women are more inclined to this sin. In all three classes they have agreed that while women are sometimes tempted in these areas men are more inclined to these four sins.

So I say, “Only women participate now—decide among yourselves what four sins you’d add to the list to that you think women are more inclined toward. Silence. Furrowed brows. Thinking…

Reblogged from JFG: “The Red Pill Is Wrong: Becoming a Better Beta”

The great majority of common men are “betas”.  They favor cooperation over conflict, and unlike “alphas”, the will to power is not a prime motivator for them.  They have no overwhelming ambition to lead many men nor to seduce many women.  Betas are characterized by flexible dominant/submissive behavior and can switch readily between situational dominant and submissive roles as the social context requires.  This allows them to work well in a hierarchy as both boss and subordinate.  In contrast to alphas, who always seek dominance, and gammas, who always accept submission, betas accept the roles that advance the well-being of the group.

Unfortunately, we live in a society that no longer values a well balanced beta man.  Instead, it weakens the common man so that women may be more equal in comparison.  The proximate cause of this cultural transformation has been feminism.  Feminists, in attempting to assert social and economic equality for women, face two serious obstacles.  First, men are naturally more aggressive and assertive than women, especially in intra-sexual interactions, where the natural sexual instincts motivate dominant actions in men and submissive responses in women.  While feminists deny this biological reality, they still must counteract it somehow.  Their solution has been social mores that shame male dominance and promote female dominance in order to counteract biology with pro-female cultural biases.

The second obstacle for feminism is men’s superior ability to build large scale social structures and institutions (see Baumeister, Is There Anything Good About Men?).  These institutions enhance the situational dominance or submission of men by placing them in a hierarchy where much of the power differentials reside in the institution, not the individuals.  These man-made institutions enhance the power of men relative to women, who specialize in small networks of relatives and close family.  This male institutional power is what feminist call Patriarchy.

To diminish the institutional power of men relative to women, feminists have worked to isolate men from their supportive peer networks and limit their socialization to the realm of friends and family, where women reign supreme.  Most fraternal organizations have either been eliminated or forced to admit women, after which they are changed to favor the needs of women over men.  A range of other social pressures and diversions are also brought to bear on men to further their isolation:  using homophobia to emotionally isolate men from each other; fostering a cult of rugged masculine individuality that leaves most non-alpha men weak and isolated; divisive identity politics; pervasive negative portrayals of masculine socialization; and the anesthetizing effect of electronic media.

Many of these trends were prevalent as early as the 1830’s, when the “domestic feminism” associated with the “cult of domesticity” held sway across the Western world.

Reblogged from Loving in the Ruins: “Unmarried, Not Single.”

An outstanding post from Elspeth about the importance of teaching our teen-aged and young adult children of the joy and blessing of doing one’s duty and serving one’s family rather than wasting time in a self-centered extended adolescence.

Our oldest daughter, Bright Eyes, has been having a challenging time of late in one of her classes. It’s one of those classes that was mostly unheard of when I was in college; one where the whole semester is based on group project work. I have all kinds of problems with that but it’s a topic for another day.

In this particular course she has been paired off with an older married man who piggybacks on her diligence and hard work. They finally had a long needed conversation on their divergent definitions of the word “collaboration’, and she was confronted yet again with a common excuse offered by college students with families when speaking with unmarried college students: “I  have family responsibilities which is why I can’t get as much done, whereas you don’t.”

To say she was livid would be an understatement. She made clear in no uncertain terms…
