If You Have A Daughter…


I talked about something I called feminine virtue here. I didn’t really have a name for it, and it was somewhat difficult to describe, but I think that it is a real thing.

It can be a real asset for a young lady. Men, even if they don’t understand it, consider it a big plus when it comes to marriage. Or at least for a good portion of men. Probably the men that are looking for it (either consciously or subconsciously) are more likely to be good marriage material. So it works both ways.

So, if you have a daughter, try to do things to cultivate this in them. I am not totally sure as to how to do it, perhaps commenters can help. However, encouraging such things as honesty, service to others, discussion about morality, thinking ahead would probably be a good start.

A hard sell is probably not the best approach. Look for teachable moments, and then discuss. Don’t pour it on too thick. At other times, subtitling bring up topics, But perhaps the best approach of all is to be a good role model.

    Feminine virtues:
    1) Chastity
    2) Modesty
    3) Diligence
    4) Discrete
    5) Nurturing
    #1 is the most important, the others I place in no particular order.
    As to the exit question, at one time girls looked to the man they hoped to marry and the children they hoped to bear. If that is not the case with a girl then she is either miseducated, which is most of our society today, or there is something wrong with her mind, which is a goodly percentage of the remainder.

    well, i actually do have a lot of thoughts on this as i’ve raised two daughters … here are a few:

    1. Model. We have to model the behavior and character we want our children to imitate.

    2. Foundation. Have a foundation from which to build. The foundation I used was 1 Peter 3:4 “Your [beauty] should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”This foundation that I chose is unchanging, so I was able to build everything around it. This does not discount outward beauty, but inward beauty is foundational to everything – character, integrity, peace, contentment. The Bible says everything flows from the heart, so I wanted to make sure their heart, their inner self, was developed with unfading beauty.

    3. Big Picture. I took the approach of the Big Picture, even from the time they were little. It seems inconsequential, at one-year’s old, to force a baby to obey you. But if you don’t begin at 1, you’re sunk when they’re 11. I would look ten years into the future … how do I want them to behave AND respond to me when they’re 12, 13, 14, 16, 18? That determined how I parented them at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, etc.

    my Aspie-Girl has been in florida this week visiting my dad and his wife with my sister (who needed to ck on my dad’s health in-person as she’s the one who will move to take care of him when he needs it). this is my daughter’s first visit to florida since she was 2, so it was a big deal on many levels. as we prepared for the trip (quite extensive as her diet is very rigid due to her allergies, alone, much less her special needs), i continued to tell her things like, “You’re going to have a great time!” “I know you’re going to represent God and us well.” “I know I’m going to be so proud of you!” “I know you’re going to treat Grandpa and his wife with great respect.” i also coached her on some things to expect and other behaviors she needed to be aware of. from the first night they got there, my Dad and his wife have been in awe of how amazing my daughter is. “We want to keep her, Ame! You can’t have her back!” today my Dad’s wife said, “She’s been my helper! She’s been right with me in the kitchen all day, helping me with everything!”

    now, i have no doubt that if she lived with them full-time, they’d get to experience all of her personality and quirks, and my Dad’s wife won’t like all of those (as i’ve learned from how she’s treated the other grandchildren in our family). but my daughter also has characteristics intentionally developed in her since birth that reveal her beautiful heart – her inner beauty. and i know she’s quite capable of handling this short trip and being very successful, or i wouldn’t have let her go (i will only set her up to succeed in public; trial and error and failure at home; success, if at all possible, in public).

    i know that we can’t guarantee our kids will turn out well as we each get to make our own choices in life, but there are things we can do as parents to give them the best shot at it.

    “For the first time in this whole tragic story of the 2020 presidential election, a state court has granted republicans in Nevada and the Trump campaign, the ability to present their case of widespread illegal balloting, and to just depose up to 15 people who know what went down in Clark County in the state of Nevada, so this is big news you know a lot of people in the national media have said, you know, if you have evidence of voter fraud, show it.

    Well, we have thousands and thousands of examples of real people in real-life instances of voter illegality. And I just think it’s a great step that we’re going to have a chance to present it. A court if we get a fair hearing. I believe the results in Nevada should be switched.”

    I’m just going by the Bible here, since I don’t have any daughters, and I really haven’t been allowed to raise my own sons hardly.(long story):
    I think the fear of the Lord is super important, but I don’t recall the Bible really clearly saying how to teach it to children, except that they are to hear it from their father. I think we should all model it for our children.

    It almost seems as though God just elects some to have it, perhaps even from the womb. I was only 4 or 5 when during my father’s evening family devotions I realized I personally was separated by my sins from God and that I was going to hell. Afterwards I begged my mother to tell me how to escape damnation to the fires of hell. I explained to her, as best a young child can, that I would never be able to sleep until I was reconciled and acceptable to God. The fear of God was there already. That was just the first point at which I realized that I wasn’t acceptable to God, and was slated to be on the receiving end of His eternal wrath, if I were to die in my sleep that night. I was beside myself with fear, a pressing fear that I could not endure. I pleaded to know how to be God’s child, and not slated for eternal fire. (my parents apparently thought that salvation should normally happen at an older age, that it wasn’t for 4 or 5 year-old’s) And after my mother explained and led me to pray a prayer of repentance for my sins, acceptance of Christ’s sufficient sacrificial death on my behalf, and to swear allegiance to Christ’s Lordship, I was still not fully calmed. She had to also explain assurance of salvation to me and show me some supporting verses before I dared to go to bed. That part was a little iffy, and I still fear for myself, knowing that God is an austere Father, who will by no means clear the guilty.(Nahum 1:2-3a)

    Oddly enough, I don’t think my three siblings who were raised by my same parents, got the fear of the Lord.

    However, my father and mother were always preaching to us kids, holding us to high and absolute standards. And voicing their contempt for lawless hippies, whose shiftless antics were always used as a teachable moment for us kids, on how not to be.

    Deuteronomy 11:19 You shall teach them [God’s words] to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
    It sounds like we fathers are to pour it on pretty thick. And the older women are to teach the younger ones too.(Titus 2:3-5)

    And yes, Okrahead, unchastity is a capital offense. The lack of those other four virtues are sins by degree.

    I support both Kyle Rittenhouse and Black Rifle coffee’s right to not want him to be the public face of their coffee.
    I’m not going to drink Starbucks because Black Rifle coffee (which helps a lot of veterans….listed to the Joe Rogan podcast) doesn’t want him to be a spokesperson for their product.
    I also support everyone’s personal decision to drink what they want/boycott what they want.

    So four years ago, we were told that Russia collided with Trump to win the election. At the time, that didn’t even pass the laugh test, as Russia clearly would want Hillary. She had demonstrated her fealty time after time, with a large example being the sale of the Uranium rights to Russia.

    But, to make sure that there was nothing there, a big multi year investigation was conducted by a vile band of Trump haters. They found bother that interested them, but did effectively expose a conspiracy to take some fake evidence and shove it into the system, all the time trying to give it legitimacy by shoving it through the system. Circular reasoning.

    Now we have lots facts that might strongly suggest election wrong doing. But there is not one hundred percent meta-physical certitude evidence. So, there you go, they say, time to move on.

    Perhaps some further investigation should be done. Then one hundred per cent meta physical certitude evidence might be found. That is kinda how the principles of the legal system are supposed to work.

    It wasn’t just that they didn’t want Rittenhouse to be their face. It was the fact that they abandoned him when he used the very fucking rifle they are named after to defend his community and they shit on him for it. The CEO was liking all sorts of tweets talking shit about him, calling him a LARPer, etc. Sorry, but you don’t get to pretend to be on our side for PR, then abandon us when it might be inconvenient for business. If you want to criticize LARPing, maybe start with your own videos. Kyle has personally killed more legitimate threats to America and the American way of life than most vets.

    Then people started looking into what was going on and it looks like the CEO donates to ActBlue and the Biden campaign. You definitely don’t get to fund our enemies and pretend you are a friend of the 2nd Amendment community.

    You know why the left wins? Because to the right it is only coffee. No one fears the right the way they fear the left. Public heresy merits a burning at the stake. That is the litmus test we should be using. Absolute fucking war against anyone who cucks to the left or who signals against us. We burn BRCC to the ground to remind everyone else on the right that if they turn on us, they will get shot in the back. Yeah, its only coffee, but now we will just put you out of business. Anything less invites betrayal and disloyalty.

    Vox still thinks the controversy is stupid, he never said otherwise. The man has his faults, like his ignorance on military matters and women, but responding to a bunch of people demanding a new source of coffee is not one of them. At least you don’t have to worry about Vox countersignalling self defense, insulting you, and donating to a gun grabber like Biden the way the Black Rifle Coffee Cucks did. The most offensive part of his response is that he doesn’t think that BRCCunts did anything wrong. You don’t get to shit on your customers and supporters and pretend like everything is fine afterwards.

    The general assumption since the disputed conclusion of the US presidential election has been that Trump is simply out of his depth and should concede with dignity. You win some, you lose some; time to give it up. This whole keep your dignity thing is one widely pushed by our enemies on the prog Marxist left as well as the slackjaws and fair weather political sailors in our midst. Our enemies push it because it has worked for them so many times in the past. The trick is to mock our side’s sense of fair play and decency and thus entice us to roll over and quit with the aforementioned and oh so valuable dignity.

    So far I only saw an investment firm called Sterling Associates, which invests in the Black rifle coffee company (and many other companies), did so as a part of their portfolio.
    That is not the same. We refinanced our mortgage this year. I did not check to see if our bank invested in Biden either. I’d prefer they didn’t, but I wouldn’t say we’re investing in Biden because our bank invested in him (hypothetically). At any rate, I’m open to be proven wrong.

    Privileged elites always want to assert their status by indulging in pleasures denied to the lower classes. This often leads them into immoral, deranged, and even criminal behavior. They’re desperate to flaunt their power by doing what lesser folk are forbidden to do.
    This is one of the reasons for the wave of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and pedophilia among the richest and most powerful. They indulge increasingly depraved appetites to savor the sweet, sweet high of doing what ordinary people cannot, feasting on the food of the gods.

    It’s also one of the reasons high-living elites are drawn to puritanical secular pseudo-religions, like the Church of Global Warming and now the Church of Covid. They have a deep appetite for making aspects of modern life forbidden to the Little People, but not to themselves.

    You’ll notice that high acolytes of the Church of Global Warming have absolutely no intention of compromising THEIR extravagant lifestyles. They jet set, they have yachts and huge cars, they buy beachfront mansions on property they claim to believe will be underwater soon.

    But they have a deep desire to make planes, cars, and accoutrements of the First World lifestyle forbidden to the proletariat. They love how their ideology elevates them into a superior overclass, reaffirming their importance by asserting they “need” or “deserve” so much more.

    These elite appetites are useful to the Left because they fold neatly into its endless war against the hated middle class. The perversions of the elite inspire them to attack the morality that would otherwise help lower and middle class people improve their station in life.

    Meanwhile, the fanatical puritan and luddite ideologies of the elite inspire them to restrict the resources and technologies that improve middle-class life and help people become more productive, which helps them earn more money and amass more capital.

    Thus we have a culture that teaches young people to reject time-tested moral codes that would help them build better lives, instead making clumsy efforts to imitate the debauchery of the elites in ways that lead them to misery and ruin.

    And our young people are taught to hate their own ambitions, to hate themselves for desiring lives that have big carbon footprints, to hate and distrust everything that could bring them prosperity and narrow the gap between their lifestyles and those of the elite.

    Take a broad look at pop culture, political culture, and increasingly corporate culture as we head into 2021. Almost every bit of it has been crafted to make middle class people abandon their ambitions and program their children to fail… making Mount Olympus ever higher.

    And then the political elite will demand even more control over our lives, to “fix” the ever-widening “inequality” gap their own policies and cultural programming made worse!

    It’s no wonder that some who dwell on the highest slopes of Mount Olympus are tempted to go even further, to indulge in dark appetites that would land lesser men in jail – a temptation that seems especially acute for male members of the extreme upper class.

    They reach for the fruit that no other hand could pick, to remind one another that they are gods, even while loudly posturing as champions of socialism, feminism, and the Little Guy. The difference between what they DO and what they SAY is part of the rush.

    That is the website for the PA State Legislature. They are moving to void the invalid election results from 11/3, and, as yours truly predicted, are doing so on the grounds: “WHEREAS, Article I, Section 4, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution empowers state legislatures, including the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to prescribe the “Times, Places, and Manner” of conducting elections;”

    My older sister makes a killer pan of lemon bars. But they look like your Matrimonial Cake, but with lemon filling, not dates. We have Scottish genes through our grandparents. It never occured to me that maybe that is why her lemon bars look like your Matrimonial Cake and not like the lemon bars one can find on Google Images. Maybe she was given the Matrimonial Cake recipe from relatives and morphed it over to lemon instead of dates.

    Anyway, you’ve made me hungry for her lemon bars. And then some fish and chips.

    TSK,
    Gunner provided the link to all donations from everyone who works for Black Rifle Coffee.
    Here it is:
    https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/individual-contributions/?contributor_employer=black+rifle

    The only thing it shows for Evan Hafer was a 1,000 dollar donation to a Republican candidate in Nevada in 2018 and 500 dollars to Tulsi Gabbard in 2019.
    There were quite a few donations to Winred, Trump, the RNC.
    One senior editor for Coffee or Die magazine (BRC affiliated) gave to Biden.
    Three people (a media manager named Altunisik, an IT guy named Omer, and a financial analyst named Rhee) gave to Actblue. I do not think (again) it is reasonable to hold a company accountable for the personal politics of people holding tangential positions like accountant, IT person and so forth. Thousands of people work for BRC, and they employ thousands of veterans.

    Evan Hafer is the CEO. He is also the one that was liking stuff that was insulting Kyle when this all went down.

    I’d have to see the “likes” and the context to form an opinion.
    From my perspective, it is a mistake for a company to make a public statement (aside from “he’s not a spokesperson” and/or “we have no opinion”) on something like this.
    It’s one thing for an individual to do so, another for company policy.
    We can say with a good deal of confidence Rittenhouse acted in self defense.
    I cannot say with any confidence what the law of that area would say about him blandishing an assault rifle to protect property (the reason he was there).
    Most places don’t allow that. At the end of the day taking a stand on a legal case publicly that has not been resolved in court, with only partial information (that is all we have) and without really knowing the person (he seems like a great kid…but I don’t know him) is a bad idea for a company. I don’t like it when politicians do this either. When politicians do it, cities burn. When companies do it, people can lose their jobs.

    If you look up Hafer, he donated to Obama in ’08, but I also saw another search where a Hafer, E that worked for BRCCucked donated a couple times to ActBlue and Biden. It would take to long to find and I’m busy, but you can take my word that I saw it.
    I can’t find it here. Are you sure you saw it first hand at the donation site instead of reading about it? Per Obama…well, I won’t fault a person for supporting him after eight years of Bush, running against McCain. A lot of people made that mistake.

    Regarding Rittenhouse, shortly after the incident, I read that he was in town to participate in some sporting event (I think sports). While engaged in what he came to town for, word reached the group that a local car repair shop of some sort had asked for help from the community because they were being beseiged by the bad guys. Some of the group at the event chose to go help protect the place, including Rittenhouse. Someone in the group gave Rittenhouse a rifle, as he had not come to town with one.

    That story is in stark contrast to the folks on the internet who criticize him for leaving his town and coming to the other one with his rifle, looking for action.

And the world is a better place with people like him in it, and free, and the world is a better place with people like the ones he shot dead, dead and armless.

    100 prominent French academics signed a letter affirming Blanquer’s statement, and calling for the French people to defeat an “American” ideology that preaches hatred of “whites” (a word that, unlike Trump, they explicitly used) and the indigenous Gallo-Romans of France. While the academics and Blanquer primarily blame Saudi-funded Islamist preachers for the death of Samuel Paty, they also believe US influence on their intellectuals has made it socially acceptable to murder white people.

    re. J.D. Vance:

    Grifter: a person who engages in petty or small-scale swindling.

    @b g – if you read the book than you understand that KH’s comment is simply character assasination. The character of Vance is not the point. The issues that Vance raises are the point. A larger discussion of this issue would show that the Elegy movie is pretty much what this particular thread is about: how do we create citizens who are more than what humanity’s baser impulses would have them be? Howard’s Elegy movie shows us in visual images the perniciousness of that struggle. Vance’s book also shows us in mental images that perniciousness but also tells us through the presentation of ideas (which movies cannot do as well) that succes in building useful citizens requires political solutions. If that reality is not recognized, then there really is no hope for improving the lot of those born without the basics required for having an outstanding intellect. But, in the case of defecits due to inbreeding or addiction, or improper raising, there may be no political solution either. Vance’s book makes people think – at least those who have the ability and desire to. That is the value of the book as well as the movie. Vance’s character flaws, whatever they may be, are irrelevant to that.

    Most of the action in Vance’s book centers on where he was in Ohio. KH’s pointing out that Vance wasn’t born in Kentucky is meaningless in that context. A huge subtext to Vance’s argument is that escaping the backwardness of where his grandparents came from in Kentucky did not solve the social problems he is discussing in the book. Because they followed the grandparents from Kentucky to Ohio. The book goes into more detail. The movie, constrained by time and visual images, shows this to us – quite well I think.

    The book, the movie, and this thread all are dealing with this truth: Without having someone to believe in us, and point out the pitfalls of life, and point out the behaviors that lead to success, it is mighty difficult to become more than what our baser impulses would have us be. And that is without factoring in the further damage that addictions do.

    The book, the movie, and this thread all make clear what happens in the absence of strong fathers, who are stable and strong and can direct their families in the paths necessary for success. But these also make clear that inbreeding and addictions and deficits in their own raising will also create men who are incapable of doing what is required in order to have personal and family success.

    For someone who cares to think about the issues actually raised in the book and movie, KH’s dismissal of Vance the person seems very petty.
