What Were They Thinking?


In an interview with Betty Friedan, Simone de Beauvoir said: No, we don’t believe that any woman should have this choice. No woman should be authorised to stay at home to bring up her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.

Earlier this year a co-worker’s wife delivered a nine pound girl.  They already have a two year old girl at home.  The wife/mother works from home part-time.  She went to University with many liberal friends.  They accuse her of selling out by being a SAHM.  Perhaps they are jealous.  Perhaps they know that the situation of Moms working and leaving children in storage at day-care centers is less than optimal for the children’s development.  Perhaps they are crabs pulling down anybody trying to escape.  Perhaps we will never know.

But let us examine the situation further.  New Mothers get a rush of hormones that drives them to attach to their new baby.  This attachment feels good and right.  Not everything that feels good is right, but in this case it is.  This is the way that it is for a good reason.  It is the height of arrogance to try to mess with it; yet this is what Feminists did.  Do they not care for the well-being of the children?  You decide.

P.S.  Yes the top picture is what it looks like it is.  It is Castro, de Beauvoir, Satre, and Che.  Perhaps this was the original axis of evil

    They foolishly believe that what works for the extreme minority of vagina-owners should be forced, kicking and screaming into working for the majority. It is the result of having a wholly unexamined worldview…one in which X is true for them, therefore it simply *must* be true for all other women. And if it proves to not be, then shame and cajole and lie and blame until any other possibility seems to be oppressive rather than desirable.

    I may not want kids myself, but there’s no way in hell I’d try to argue that this is the best lifestyle for everyone. Only those afraid to be apart from the herd would seek to alter it’s entire course…

    De Beauvoir was never a mother.
    The only women I’ve met who believe that aren’t mothers.
    However, some mothers WANT to go back to work, because being a mother to a small infant is a lot more difficult than they thought it would be and they want the escape.

    de Beauvoir enjoyed a destructive relationship with Sartre. Good for her! She was very good at bringing her young female students to Sartre’s bed for him to enjoy. Quite the feminist, was Simone de Beauvoir.

    The strength of Western Civilization was the family.

    An unholy alliance of Feminism and Leftist forces launched an attack on the family, the leftists because they thought it would be the best way to destroy the Bourgousie, Feminists because they thought it would be the best way to destroy men.

    I hope Feminism up-anchors from the shores of insanity where it has been stuck for so long.

    Also, I am beginning to think that feminists have a greater desire to cause men harm than help women.

  9. That is a most disturbing quote. Bordering in the whole “children of the state” idea in Romania. That did not work out so well.

    Truth is I was brought up with this same mentality. Children were “something anyone could do.” Perhaps. But do well? Hardly.

    As I have learned with my business, nobody will care as much or work as hard as you. I have always paid too dollar for childcare and chosen caregivers very carefully, because in this crazy world I was always expected to work. But I wish I had been able to just enjoy being a mom, invested in my family and home. When I was a child one learned quickly, when asked what one wanted to be when they grew up, was not “mom” or “wife” but “nurse” or “teacher” or better yet “president.” Wife and mom were off the table, thanks to women like the one quoted. It makes me rather angry to think all along I was led to believe being a wife and mom was “an inferior” choice. The female version of the blue pill — education, career, success! What a crock!

  10. That may be a bit disjointed above, what I meant to say is that somehow, even when subletting my mothering, I knew that to pay top dollar was better than to bargain shop. And I have had amazing caregivers for my kids, but at the same time does anyone love them as much as you love them yourself? That was what I meant by “subletting.” Yes, I can make more per hour than I pay even top quality, one-on-one childcare, but I have missed huge chunks of my children’s lives as a result, and when I am with them I am often stressed and distracted by all I have to do otherwise. Now, as a single mom (partially I believe due to me focusing on education and career over family and children) I am locked in — I HAVE to work. And yes, thanks to my career and education I can. But I wonder at times…without those, would things have turned out better perhaps? Not only for me, but even more for my kids?

    Published on Mar 7, 2014 by Sargon

    “Feminist icon” Gloria Steinem, the daughter of a traveling antiques dealer and a clinically insane single mother, considers herself to be an “average American” and not a person damaged by her mentally-unstable mother, as she got married for the first time at the age of 66 and was childless her whole life. This accounts for her insane view of the world.

    Feminism is a hate movement. Not one of those phony hate movements the splc and leftist make up but an actual ideology based on hate. The left is pretty much a hate movement so any branch of it will be driven by hate and the desire to destroy vs the desire to protect and propagate.

    Women electing to raise large, healthy White families are part of the protect and propagate thing and are therefore hated by feminists and progressives

    I was on the phone with my mother just yesterday and we were talking about my neice (my father’s first daughter, I’m my mom’s only child). My neice is 30, and Mom said if she had to do it over again she would never have gotten married (suggesting that my neice should never get married). So I said, “no kids then either?” The response, “Well, she can still have kids. Women do these days.” I naturally inquired, “So you think it’s easier to do alone?”
    Response: “Well, you hire someone…”

    I remain absolutely astounded by how gobsmackingly stupid that woman is. The meme never changes. NEVER. Nothing would make her happier than if I’d get a job where I had to travel and just forgot about the kids (her grandkids). Mike and i could be a traveling career couple! Our kids could be raised completely by strangers! The sheer joy of it…because, you see, I’D HAVE A GREAT CAREER (unless and until something changes and I lost my job or something).

No emotionally stable person could think that they were safer now because someone, somewhere, would not get updates to a game they purchased that allowed them to fight as the Union Army but contained the sight of the Confederate flag.

    “Baby boy is 5 months now and cute as the dickens”

    My Wee Meddy is cute too. He’s at the running stage now. He went from crawling to running, no walking in between although his early running was actually a quick step walk. While he’s not sleeping he’s moving. He doesn’t stop to rest while he’s awake although he does relax when I carry him around.

    Wee Meddy is calm. The only time he gets mad is when he uses my tools. He swings the hammer at a nail and whacks his finger instead. He tries to use the hammer the way I do and his arms aren’t strong enough yet. I bought him a plastic toy hammer and he threw it away.

Anyway after 4-5 dates, I figured Mr. Smith to have too many stories (like constant) of ex’s he still seemed to talk to regular aka weekly. So I faded out, my life being complex enought without self imposed ambiguity and all, not that I am judging, spin your area darling but I will not be one of. Anyway, thank goodness a gal (70+) who is a family descendent of the people who built my place and probably by biggest fan was here, so I slyly asked her to please stay. She put both thru the wringer as I watched and laughed! She determined, as I had, mr. Smith is cute and charming but not a serious contender. Love her!

Still, as he was even crying on my shoulder about wanting his wife back, and warning me off his longtime friend Mr. Smith, he also asked me out, which I declined on the sake that he focus on his marriage (???)

    In the 90’s I hired a retired Lt. Colonel, ex-Special Forces. He said that in the run-up to Gulf War I he and a sergeant had walked into Baghdad — in uniform — and spent a month mapping targets. He said they were in uniform the whole time, and spent the nights walking around hiding in plain sight, making notes. He said the sergeant was under orders to shoot him if they were cornered.

    I don’t have the background to know if this was all true, but in general I was unaware of his exaggerating or lying about such things. He wasn’t very good at business (he had no conception of hewing to a hard budget), but was a good guy. His father had been a general, and he enlisted as an 18 year-old and served in combat in Viet Nam, then went to West Point and got his commission. So he’s the only guy I ever met who served in VN and in the very, very different Army of the 90’s. He told some wild tales as well about HALO jumps into Columbia to kill cartel actors.

    It’s the old story. My grandad taught me not to shoot unless I could drop a deer with one shot through the brain. Carefree and alive one second, dead the next. The venison was good. If I had to stalk it and the deer knew it was being hunted, the venison was too tough and gamey. The skunk was an extreme example of that. Even after cooking it stank to high heaven.

    With this talk about wildlife and such, I think we should clarify what we Americans are speaking of when we say “opossum” as these critters are very different from the other “possums” of the Australian/New Zealand side of the world.

    Ours, the Virginia Opossum, is the only marsupial native to North America. It has a current territory that encompasses southern Ontario, all of Central America, all of the eastern US, and a large part of the Midwestern US. There’s also a very small range of California that has them running around.

    They are mostly nocturnal, omnivores like humans, and are highly skilled tree climbers. Surprisingly, they aren’t related to the ones from Aus/NZ at all, as they are of the order Didelphimorphia, not Diprotodontia.

    Here’s what we US folk are referring to:

    I raised a bunch of these little pouch babies…They look a bit like rats, but have the most clever, strong, prehensile tails you’ve ever seen. Got a tiny “thumb” on the end to actually hang upside down that they wrap around your fingers when drinking from a bottle. They are smaller and nicer than raccoons, and absolutely *love* grapes, plain oatmeal, mealworms and dog food. 🙂

    Regarding Fuzzie’s Free Northerner link, if churches didn’t emasculate their male attendees, while celebrating the whims of their female parishioners, they might find themselves more relevant as social magnets and marriage enablers.

    But they do prefer their boys subordinate and supplicating, and they do not see any problem with single moms herding their offspring into the sanctuary to disrupt and distract services. Churches do promote the false objective of “a relationship with Jesus” (the word “relationship” doesn’t exist in the Bible), which is churchian for “I want a man to love me like my boyfriend Jesus.” Churches do surround thoughtful sermons with crap soft-rock “praise songs” that couldn’t make the cut for a Dr. Scholl’s commercial, while the women in the congregation sway and tap and touch the sky in their communion with their boyfriend, Jesus.

    So men don’t go to church, which are now 70% female, and 95% femme-centric. No wonder no one connects at church; the few men who are there are as masculine as your basic TV doofus.

    I go to church because I’m interested in scripture and appreciate the thoughtful scriptural study that I often encounter in the sermons. However, the obese omega males and patronizing females who want to hug it out on first impression make my skin crawl. In a tradition that has produced the most important sacred, devotional music and hymns of any religion, I get to listen to electric piano and a plastic drum kit, while photos of mountains with lyric talking points flash on the screen. I really can’t imagine any man of substance expecting a meaningful heterosexual social network emerging from church.

    I know a couple of Anglican priests and they both tell me much the same thing: congregations in NZ these days are almost entirely female. I also know young men who were brought up in Christian homes but have left the church. Too many preachers rant on about deadbeat dads and men should man up and men are to blame for the shortage of husbands and fathers. The pulpit is a platform for feminism.

    The churches all had big pipe organs and choirs. My favorite part is the singing. We (the men) would roar our way through the wonderful songs with the words in front of us in the song books. I heard later, the first time we sang our volume gave them all a shock and then they loved it. The priest told me when the word gets around that my clan will likely be attending the numbers swell, especially the young women. Our noisy enthusiasm is infectious, they say. So if churches want more people, bring back the young men. In any other age it would be a simple solution, but it will never happen in a barking mad feminist world.

First we’ll have all manner of theatre, such as 20,000 armed men in the state capital politely saying Molon Labe. But after that we’ll just have the next civil war.

    Americans are violent, as our detractors love to point out. Well, that insight cuts both ways, if the mandarins wish to neuter our Bill of Rights. Really, I wish the confrontation would hurry. We are really two countries now.

    I went to church this morning with my best friend out here, who volunteered for Nam where he ran an M-60 in an APC in the central highlands, and is your classic farm boy patriot. He shoots better in his off-arm, at 67, than I do in my favored. However, as the pastor noted this morning that next Sunday’s service should be attended in red, white and blue clothing, he said, “I don’t need to stand up and salute the American flag any more.” He’s just a regular guy, drives the speed limit, takes care of his morbidly obese wife, and mows his yard on time. Has an awesome vegetable garden. For fun we paint metal grain bins.

    In an interview last week, in WashDC, a polite government type asked me, “Do you identify as American?” I responded, after 20 seconds, “Which America?” Oddly, she just smiled. I don’t think I blew the interview. Understand, my father’s family has been here since long before the Revolution. We have been as mainstream as mainstream gets.

    So to your question, sure: they can mobilize the National Guard and order them to kill us all. But I don’t think that will work.

    The constitutional republic died in 1860 when a voluntary union was held together by war crimes over an issue of tax and spend. Everything from that point has been death spasms of corpse

    opossum’s are vile as vile gets. Frequent carries of even smaller vermin

    Given past historical examples, yankees will willingly back the state’s grab for absolute power

    They won’t try confiscation any which way but there is not much of historical track record of yankees resisting the expansion of power, I can think of two riots, both by irish. One over the war, the other integration but that’s about it. And frankly the anti gun movement lives by the yankee and left coast vote( if Whites in yankee land voted like Whites in the South none of this shit would be an issue)

    Cill, on singing:

    A couple of years ago I was returning from South Dakota and stopped for coffee at 6:30 a.m. in a remote small town that is renowned for its archaic conservatism. There was a table of men having coffee. It turns out that they were meeting to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Think: a table of men who farm and run small factories, and gather at 6:30 because in their world no one drinks and goes out at night. Dudes with shoulders and short-clipped hair. So they gather at dawn to celebrate a friend.

    It came time to sing happy birthday, apparently.

    The table burst forth in song, and these men poured sounds into the small shop, and (being long-time hymn singers) even did so in two part harmony. The gusto was something I’d never heard. I will never forget this moment, nor my desire to be one of them.

    Churches now have enormously fat women on stage singing about Lord Jesus my Best Friend Forever. The congregation sways in sexual rapture. They worship themselves. When the shit hits the fan, the “men” in these congregations will be hiding under their beds.

    Ton, you can call me a Yankee, I suppose, because after all, the Iowa Volunteers were core to Sherman’s march. But I very much doubt that it will go well, west of the Hudson, once the evisceration of our remaining liberties begins. People have had enough.

  179. I pray for an awakening rather than a collapse. Without an awakening I do not see much hope of happily ever after. The day of reckoning is near without people waking up to the fact that we are taking on water quick and there are not nearly enough lifeboats…

    I can only look at the past and attempt to predict the future BV and your folks have been a driving force to create this mess, lock step with the progressive agenda. I cannot see that reversing course with so many generations of past behaviour.

  181. Momma kitty update: when she arrived a little over two weeks ago, it seemed like momma kitty was nursing but having seen no evidence of kittens I have been trying to figure out if she’s expecting or had already had them, or what? Last night we spotted a young cat, not a tiny kitten but maybe 3 months old, hiding in the bushes near where she was. She ran about excited, rubbing up against me and my oldest, who spied the hiding kitty. We called to it but it would not approach. Momma kitty did not approach it, but also seemed unconcerned that it was there, something she doesn’t do around our house cat (but thats improving quickly.) we are calling the new mystery arrival “baby cat” for now. Could last night have been the big reveal? Stay tuned…🐱I am involuntarily on my way to becoming a cat lady it seems if they keep just showing up like this!

    Bloom the mother cat was teaching her kitten by example. She was showing the young one that you won’t harm them and are worth coddling up to because you could be useful to them. It’s also a way of confirming territory to the young one. As in “This is another cat’s patch but we’ll probably take over because this big honcho 2-legged critter thinks we’re legit”
