The Complexity of Being

I trawl through various Feminine tags quite often- whether it’s Femininity, Feminism, Gender Traditionalism, or any related tag that will deliver the content that I crave. During one such trawl at one point, I stumbled across two articles with a similar theme to them: That Femininity is weakness.

The Power of Choice; Setting the Record Straight on Choice Feminism

Choice Feminism is little understood in certain circles of Feminist thought; most people are under the mistaken impression that Choice Feminism believes that all choices made by a woman are Feminist choices by default; that a Woman making a choice is always making a Feminist choice by default of calling herself a Feminist. This is not, however, the case at all.  Continue reading “The Power of Choice; Setting the Record Straight on Choice Feminism”

The Unobtainable Image of the Perfect Housewife: 3 (More) Keys to Success

When people say that the image of the perfect Housewife is unobtainable, their primary focus is almost always on the expectation that we look good doing it all. Like with doing it all in the first place, though? Looking good while doing it isn’t unrealistic or unobtainable either if it’s genuinely what you want to do.

The Truth About the 1950’s Housewife

As a traditionally feminine woman who strives daily to perfect that stereotypical image of the 1950’s housewife, I often catch an unfortunate amount of flack from various individuals concerning every aspect of it. But while the points they make are often perfectly valid, thought provoking, and generally not wrong in many cases? They’re usually still irrelevant and show an increasing detachment from the reality of history. Continue reading “The Truth About the 1950’s Housewife”

Toeing the Middle Line; Setting the Record Straight on Centrism

It seems like in today’s political climate, Centrists are everyone’s favorite laughing stock. Admittedly, many of them (us?) might deserve it. But I want to set a few things straight about what Centrism is- and isn’t- supposed to be. Both for fellow Centrists and those who don’t quite understand what it is.

Submission Doesn’t Mean Unconditional Obedience

Quite a few articles are cropping up here and there about Traditional Marriage. A disturbing number of them focus on the Wife’s obedience to her Husband, and our submission. I’d be a liar, though, if I didn’t say that many of these articles lately are putting a sour taste in my mouth. Continue reading “Submission Doesn’t Mean Unconditional Obedience”

So What if I Walk the Dog More; Setting the Record Straight on Egalitarian Marriage

Over the last few years I have stumbled across a number of articles from Traditionalists and Feminists alike, talking about “Egalitarian Marriage”. In my adventures, there seems to be two underlying trends that I’ve encountered among these articles regardless of who it is writing them: The majority of people talking about Egalitarian Marriage are unhappy with their marriages, and their authors seem to have little idea of what legitimately constitutes an Egalitarian Marriage.
