A Message to Female Students

As our Christmas break comes to a close and the next semester quickly approaches, I’d like to take the time to say some much-needed words to my fellow women at Penn State, which are, to say the least, a bit controversial, though nonetheless necessary. They are necessary because no one else will tell you these things. Not your liberal professors, nor your feminist friends, nor your boomer parents.

The social experiment that is feminism has failed our culture, and you, my dears, are the primary victims. Though the term “victim” and the SJW mentality associated with it is one I abhor, it is unfortunately accurate and descriptive here. There are many problems plaguing our generation, which are all symptoms of the same disease that is modernity. These problems affect men and women alike, but here I’d like to speak just to the women, to share my view, the view of a graduating senior beginning her last semester, the view of a girl who has come to reject so fully that which I was told by everyone would make me happy.

Most everything our culture tells us, the media tells us, the elites and Hollywood tell us, it’s all a lie. A very clever sort of lie, one that is not entirely false, but just true enough to slowly reel us in like a siren song. These lies are everywhere, to the point where beginning to take notice of them makes you feel like a conspiracy theorist, and you begin to doubt yourself and come shrinking back to those same lies.

We hear the same mantra over and over again. “You are beautiful. You are special. You deserve respect and love. You deserve a man who treats you right. You have been oppressed, and you deserve that CEO position. You can achieve anything you want. You can do anything a man can do, and you can do it better. And you can do it all with or without a family. You are not defined by your relationship status, by how many people you’ve slept with, or by your weight. You are beautiful. You are special.”

That’s all crap, to put it eloquently. As I said, it’s not entirely false, but it is misleading, so hear me out.

You are not beautiful. You are not special. You do not deserve anything, certainly not love or respect, and thinking that you are owed anything will utterly consume you and ruin for you any chance of obtaining real happiness. You must earn everything. For when something is earned and accomplished, that’s when you can rightly be proud and satisfied. Respect is earned by acting respectably, and love by being loving. Few people in your life will ever truly respect or love you, but those who do, namely your family, your husband and your children, will be worth more to you than any other thing in this world.

You are not beautiful and not special, because if everyone is, then no one is. You may be beautiful and special to those who care about you, and you may have these qualities more than others, but you are not all objectively interesting. Not everyone is a winner, and the world gives you no participation trophy for existing, or at least, it shouldn’t. But that does not mean that those who are winners are oppressing those who are not. There is no systemic oppression holding you back, not in America, not in 2018. The only thing standing in the way of your happiness is your own mentality. We are not kept down by any institution, but rather, we are unhappy because we have fooled ourselves into thinking that to be a successful woman, you have to act like a man.

We have been told to recognize success in the way that men are successful. We are told that success is measured by our education level, our career path, our income, and our material wealth. Happiness seldom comes into the equation, and when it does, it masquerades as a sort of immediate satisfaction with our property and not a lasting sort of joy. For men, happiness does come from these things, from being a successful breadwinner, assuming there is a family for which the man can provide. But for women, happiness comes from building strong relationships and raising good children.

We have been lied to that men and women are the same. We may all have equal dignity as human beings, we may be of equal importance, regardless of sex, but equality (much to the chagrin of everyone in the mainstream) is not sameness. It is lunacy that our society has blinded itself to such inherent and obvious male/female differences. When you look at a person, you can tell if they are a man or a woman (assuming of course they have not destroyed their body with artificial cross-sex hormones). You can usually tell if something was handwritten by a man or a woman. You know what men and women sound like. And you know that men and women have their own strengths.

Exceptions do not change the rule, but in the general sense, men have more muscle mass, are more athletic, are more assertive, and have a greater aptitude for mathematics and spatial awareness. Women, on the other hand, have a greater aptitude for language and memory, are more socially aware and personable, are better at organization and multitasking, and are more patient. These are just some of the many differences that exist between men and women, and they are so obvious, that our ancestors would be rolling in their graves if they knew how much we ignore them. These differences exist and they matter. They serve a purpose, because we were designed for very different and equally important things. And yet, in nearly every facet of our modern world, we treat men and women the same, largely to the detriment of women.

In some sense, I suppose you could achieve anything you set your mind to, but that’s not the question, and it never has been. The question is, should you? So what if you can be a lawyer or a doctor or a CEO? Of course, you are capable! But should you? For many women, myself included, we do not consider this at all. We do not think about our life as anything more than following the most desirable career path that fits our personality, as determined by some questionnaire your guidance counselor had you fill out in 10th grade. Those questionnaires, by the way, make no distinction between the life choices that would be more compatible with masculinity or femininity. Instead, they tend to focus on what you want to do or what your hobbies are.

These are not important factors in career planning. For one, most people never have a career, they simply have a job. Secondly, we have a certain number of jobs projected to be open in certain fields, many of which are not “desirable.” Far too many young people are told to follow their dreams as they flock to universities, and not nearly enough students choose to go into tech or construction or industry. Instead, we have students majoring in gender studies, medieval history, or some other such relatively pointless major that will not land you a job. Of course, this could be another article entirely, so let’s get back to the women.

Girls, to put it bluntly, you have to think realistically with respect to your future family. For the overwhelming majority of you, you will not be happy slaving away at a desk job, vying for a top spot in your company, only to realize at 35 that you are miserable when you come home to your empty apartment and scroll through social media, envying all the pictures of your friends with their children. I say this because I want you to be happy, not because I think you can’t be a successful businesswoman, but because evidence shows you will be much more fulfilled if you make having a family your priority.

Our culture tells us that we can do both, we can have it all. While perhaps you can, you absolutely should not. Pursuing both a fast-paced career and trying to raise a family is something that is not healthy for you or your children. Either your work will suffer, or your children will not be receiving the attention they need from their mother. Daycare is an abomination that deprives children of their mother under the false flag of women’s liberation. Being a slave to your job is not liberating, but being the instructor of new, dependent human beings is. We live on through our children, not just biologically, but culturally and socially as well. “For the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”

Upholding moral standards, raising your children to be good and just, being the social bedrock of society, these are the things that matter. We have a unique gift as women, and it is squandered by giving up or postponing motherhood in the false pursuit of a career. Instead, I implore you to consider the road less traveled by today, the one that leads to a full embrace of your femininity. Consider a path that allows you to stay home with your children for as long as you can, whether as a homemaker or in a position with compatibility and flexibility, such as a teacher, a nurse, a freelance writer, etc.

Of course, to be a good mother, you need a good husband. This is the best thing you can give your children: two parents who are married, love each other, and are present. But our culture tells us nothing about how to find quality men, so here is my advice. You will only attract men of the quality that you emulate. In other words, if you give in to the hook-up culture, you will be used for your body. If you go on birth control in the hopes of preventing pregnancy, you will be taken advantage of by men who would not be willing to commit to you if you otherwise were able to get pregnant. And what should you expect? Remember that you do not deserve anything outright. If you want to be a wife and mother, even if you think that future is distant, then you must act like the kind of woman you think a good father for you children would respect. Be the kind of girl whom parents would be proud to meet, be a woman with high standards and good moral character, be gentle, be kind, and be loving. Do not compromise.

Ladies, we are on the cusp of a cultural collapse. Now, more than ever, we need strong mothers to uphold the values which make this country great. Do not listen to the rhetoric surrounding you that whispers in your ear sweet nothings of climbing the corporate ladder, if only you ignore your longing for family, have that abortion, and wave that feminist flag. You were made for more. You were made a woman.

Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace.
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

 

Infancy’s the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mothers first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow —
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

 

Woman, how divine your mission,
Here upon our natal sod;
Keep – oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

 

Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky —
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

 

“The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Rules the World”

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it! Not all of us can use feminism and marxism to fight transphobia, but we do what we can.
