In her own little recesses of the internet, a friend of mine posted a breathtakingly and poignant article today talking about enech, or “face”- the concept we tend to call honor, as it applies to Irish faith. It got me thinking about what Honor actually is, and how it applies in a modern context. Continue reading “Honor and Equality: Conundrum or Triviality?”
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.

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.

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.

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”
We as Humans tend to conflate criticism with insult. Unfortunately, this conflation is not accurate, nor is it right; criticism and insult are two different things that it would do us well to understand better- especially if we genuinely care about being ladylike.

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.
