As I watched the Gunn Brothers film, The Monstrous Regiment of Women, I was encouraged or inspired by the courage it took to write and produce the film. It’s quite a risk, in this day and age, to stand for the truth and to make bold statements that will garner a high volume of criticism – probably much more criticism than praise, really. Or, better said, the criticism will be so vitriolic that the praise will appear to be drowned out. But the praise will be there, no doubt, as more view the film and hear its message. I thought after I saw the film the second time that I’d need to view it a few times to see the wisdom of some of the presentation.
There were a few segments that I felt I might have done differently or might have omitted. But I see the wisdom for the inclusion. I might have chosen specific activities or specific measurable actions performed by the women in politics instead of addressing so much of the characters or appearances of specific women currently ‘in office’ in the
The film’s not for the timid, or the wishy-washy, nor is it for the squeamish. As for younger viewers, I’d suggest extreme discretion unless the younger person is very mature – for the segment devoted to the heinous atrocity of abortion is exceedingly painful – both to view the graphic footage, but also to consider the magnitude of the industry and the ‘commonness’ of the ‘procedure.’ I believe we would see the most dramatic decrease in abortion deaths were every woman to see the procedure prior to taking pen in hand to give consent for the death of her unborn child.
So, the viewing of the film stirred up many of my long held thoughts.
Year after year I recognize more and more the offenses of the “feminist movement” and the damaging effects to, now several, generations of both men and women. I genuinely believe that women seeking what they perceive as power are being so misguided by ‘feminists’ or those who have actually led to the destruction and demise of femininity. The sin nature demands its own way – demands power. So women have been vying for the power to lead that was originally given to men. And then it’s as if women so longed for the place or attention of men that they decided the best recourse would be to do away with men – to be in their stead. By working against God’s marvelous plan, women have not received honour and ‘power’ but a blight instead. Women have become noisy, contentious and arrogant as they’ve sought to dominate and rule men.
One of the damaging aspects to liberation and feminism can most clearly be seen in sexuality and childbearing. Feminists, in the zeal to be free – free to do and be whatever they want to do and be have actually brought on an extremely insidious result and that is that women have been reduced to objects of gratification instead of precious treasures to be defended. They’ve traded the precious gift of creation for a lie: the lie that they can ‘have it all.’
That’s a lie.
Women cannot have it all… they’re not meant to, after all, for that was not God’s original plan. However… women can, and many do, have all of what God designed them to be and have and do. Feminists have degraded homemaking, childbearing and motherhood to such an extent that most young women coming out of school are inept to do the necessary work of homemaking and nurturing a family. It takes incredible skill, tenacity, perseverance and creativity to make and keep a home and to nurture up the next generation. Thanks to feminists, the most remarkable job is the most mocked. The skills required to do a remarkable job are remarkably lacking – thanks to those who disrespect homemakers the most: feminists.
Because women want to be, act like, say and do the same things as men, men’s natural instinct and role is squashed and the mannerly, loyal protection is replaced by crude gestures, disrespect, inappropriate behaviour and demeaning social activities – not to mention carelessness toward purity, the miracle of conception, pregnancy and birth. Instant sexual gratification has replaced purity and delayed gratification and instead of that actually ‘liberating’ women, it’s made them less…not precious in the eyes of men, they’re not revered, honoured and respected. Just look at what women are willing to do, say and be to be accepted by men… what they are (and aren’t) willing to wear to control men.
And then (for shame!): Men have not stood up to say:
Shame on the public immodesty, stop the degradation of women! Go home – get dressed – stop showing your panties to the public – you go on home, put on some clothes that say you’re specially created by God to be a woman and I’m not going to let another man take advantage of your desire to be somebody! You already ARE somebody! You’re a Woman! You’ve got twice the job of a man anyway… you’re taking care of NEXT generation you’re teaching the next generation who God is… how to care for one another, how to do things, how to be a family. Wow. Now go on home. Big stuff ought to be going on there – get to it! Nobody should be gawking at and undressing you anymore! And no more laying around. We won’t have it.
But, no, a great many men have been relegated to spinelessness at the hands of overbearing women and women won’t let themselves be protected from themselves (and then are mocked for it).
Where are the real men?
… just gettin’ started here.
