Feminism is the promotion and glorification of rebellion

I’ve been trying to think of a succinct and encapsulating summary of what feminism is since I’ve been discussing it a lot. I think I have succeeded on that front. However, if you think of something to add post it in the comments.

“Feminism is the promotion and glorification of rebellion”

Why?

  1. Destruction of patriarchy (male led families)
  2. Destruction of family roles and responsibilities
  3. Advocacy of no fault divorce rips apart families. 65-70% of divorces are initiated by women; of women with college degrees or higher it jumps to 90%. Also of note, wife custody of children accounts for about 60% of the motivation for divorce.
  4. Pushes careerism and self exploration over the fulfillment of families
  5. “Follow your heart” = “follow your feelings” = no long term thinking of consequences
  6. Encourages promiscuity
  7. Acceptance of LGBT: lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans
  8. Birth control and hatred of children
  9. Abortion
  10. Fat acceptance and accusations of the shallowness of beauty
  11. Demonization of masculinity for men
  12. Demonization of femininity for women
  13. Pushes women to be masculine and men to be feminine – rebellion and/or inversion
  14. Detests authority
  15. Typical SJW tactics such as lying, doubling down on lies, and projection (h/t Vox)
  16. Shaming tactics

All of these things are seen as good by the world. On the other hand, there is a natural beauty and order within God’s creation as seen through the Scriptures.

Feminism masquerades under the “good guise” of the theme of the liberation of women from oppression and the gaining of freedom. However, when viewed objectively at its actions, feminism is not only the promotion but also the glorification of rebellion against God.

Matthew 7:15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will [k]know them by their fruits. [l]Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will [m]know them by their fruits.

Good trees bear good fruit, and bad trees bear bad fruit. Look at the fruit of feminism. It should be obvious that it is corrupted and evil.

How it manifests in Christianity leads to churchianity. This was started to be explored here.

“It absolves women of responsibility for the origins of their own sins.”

Within marriage and male and female relationships feminism aims at distorting the natural pairing of authority and responsibility. Authority is striped from the husbands and given to the wives under the guise of “servant leadership” or “spiritual authority” (e.g. not authority on anything else) or as Nova puts it “figureheadship”. Corresponding responsibility is striped from the wives and given solely to husbands. Wives in this scenario are naturally more godly than men. Thus, husbands are made slaves to wives’ feelings. As Father Marker puts it:

Authority without responsibility is tyranny.
Responsibility without authority is slavery.

What this means is that in today’s western world women have become tyrants and men have become slaves. So if women want men to “man up” then ladies you had better give us some authority to go along with that responsibility.

Thus, feminism is the promotion and glorification of rebellion. Also, see: Romans 1:18-32.

You cannot be a Christian and a feminist.

    Feminism is glorified Penis Envy.

    Agreed about the nature of penis envy, but I don’t think it encapsulates all of feminism.

    Aside from typically male occupied roles (headship or authority) and occupation, there’s also things like beauty, demonization of men, divorce, and abortion which don’t fall directly under penis envy. These tend to fall under types of malicious behavior due to selfishness and moral relativism.

  4. Looking Glass says:

    It’s both a combination of the Fall and the modern anti-Christian religion. That’s why it’s so pervasive & perverse.

  5. Jacob says:

    The “promotion and glorification” part may give a lot of feminists a free pass, as not all feminists promote or glorify their rebellion, while still participating in it. This would be true for Churchian feminists. “Organised rebellion” may be a better overall description as it covers them all and offers no escape clause for the foolish creature who went with the herd not promoting or glorifying anything but saying nothing and enjoying its fruits.

  6. donalgraeme says:

    I would offer a qualified change:

    “Feminism is one example of the promotion and glorification of rebellion”

    I dare say there are plenty of other examples of the promotion and glorification of rebellion besides feminism. But it is certainly one of the most prominent.

  7. Minesweeper says:

    @DS, you are right but wrong about one thing, the divorce rate is almost 90% initiated by women, the reason it only says 65-70% is because the men often have to pay the full divorce costs as part of her settlement. So its counted as they wanted the divorce.

    Often women even after separating dont want the “blame” for whats happened in anyway so they get a kick out of one again he has had to pay for everything and its his fault too.

    Also why you will see women who have affairs and initiate separation and divorce will insist on “irreconcilable” differences on the reasons for divorce. And the men who are under so much punishing stress and abuse normally from their ex’s won’t put the real reason on the form as it will just cause her to pile even more trouble on top on what she is doing already.

    Imagine is the divorce forms were accurate, it would be a scandal.

  8. Minesweeper says:

    @DS, can I ask where you found the “of women with college degrees or higher it jumps to 90%” in he pdf ?

    cheers

  9. @ Minesweeper

    It’s mentioned in the first link on the 65-70% site. In the second PDF having trouble finding it too.

    http://www.themodernman.com/blog/are-college-educated-women-bad-wife-material.html

    Several sources including stuff like this have it referenced. I assume it’s in the data as WEDUC and possibly referenced by another study.

  10. @ Jacob

    Good point. In the case of Churchian feminists, they outwardly decry feminism, but by their own actions agree with what it says and reap it’s fruits.

    Going with what Donal also said…

    “Feminism is an example of the promotion and glorification of covert or overt organized rebellion and the reaping of its fruits.”

  12. Feminism is not penis envy so much as it is God envy. In the garden the temptation was to be as a god. The one true God determines reality and ethics as a derivative of His person. This is what feminists desire, to declare what is right or wrong based on their own person and shape reality to their will. They want or feel, so it is real and right. Even as God is not subject to a standard outside Himself, so women do not want to be held to a standard that goes against their feelings. When a man doesn’t make them want him or inspire good feeling he is anathema to her godness.

    Christian feminism rejects the vile third-wave feminism taught in the universities, but very much venerates the feminist “reforms” of the sixties. Complemtarians have consolidated those gains and enforced the cavil that prior to then, women were victims of God’s revealed designs for marriage and sex roles.

    The frame is wrong, because feminism focuses on the individual and not the unity of the marriage. God made two one, but feminism wants to make the one two for the purpose of creating a rivalry to empower the individual (woman) at the expense of the union. Ultimately women are not gods and they are not even men; they fail in their pitiable attempts to be that which they are not. God’s reality is inescapable as is His ethical design.

    Just as Eve handed the forbidden fruit to Adam and he failed to say no, so also the church has taken the forbidden fruit of female rebellion and failed to say no to the women. What is even more egregious is that if a husband says no to his wife’s rebellion, the church will likely accuse him of some form of abuse. In the church, Men are taught to worship women, to serve them and to receive the blessing of the providence from those vessels of spirituality.

    I have read most of the study “These Boots Are Made for Walking: Why Most Divorce Filers are Women” and also used my browser to search the text, and I cannot find any justification for the statement “Among college-educated couples, the percentage of divorces initiated by wives is a whopping 90 percent.”. It is on a site that appears to be soliciting business for divorce lawyers, so perhaps it is a case of misleading readers, but I can’t think of a reason to do so.

    The closest I could find is an example Case where the husband has a 4-year degree and his white wife has a law degree (7 years) in a no-fault state (aren’t they all now?) and she will get custody of the 2 children. It says “Probability that wife files =.79” which is 79%. Perhaps it would reach 90% if there were no children as “The presence of children also makes divorce less likely ….”.

    There are some other interesting statement such as:

    “This paper considers women’s filing as rational behavior,….” — This may be the biggest flaw in the study. 😉

    “… others have argued that no-fault divorce has led to huge transfers of wealth from wives, as husbands have been able to take particular advantage of the law.” — I thought no-fault divorce also included equal distribution of the married estate, so I don’t see how husbands could take advantage.

    “… a woman’s value on the marriage market tends to depreciate with time, while her husband’s tends to appreciate.” — Women seem to be unaware of this, which is quite amazing to me.

    “The standard view is that the increases in divorce rates brought about by no-fault divorce were the result of husbands unilaterally absconding with disproportionate shares of marital property. Yet women file for divorce more often than men.” — Again, the claim of unequal distribution. Perhaps money is less important to women than is often believed. This suggests that women don’t divorce for rational reasons.

  14. Minesweeper says:

    “The standard view is that the increases in divorce rates brought about by no-fault divorce were the result of husbands unilaterally absconding with disproportionate shares of marital property. ”

    utter lunacy, i doubt any man has seen this outside of the rare celebrity divorce.

  15. @ OKRickety

    Yeah, I’m not quite sure about that still. I’m going to leave it for now as there’s a lot of other analysis I’ve seen that say the same thing, but I personally couldn’t find it either.

    Basically, it seems that it wraps around the trend of:

    ~ Woman may be more highly educated
    ~ Woman may make more
    ~ Most college men that are marrying have been raised to be providers without masculinity and hence are not attractive

    Thus, women can jump ship easily and potentially find ‘more attractive’ prospects and/or remarry especially when they have good job prospects from education.

    AKA they don’t need providers and can make their own money so all they are looking for is someone who turns them on.

  16. OKRickety says:

    Looking at a number of sites, it seems to be widely agreed that college-educated women are more likely to stay married longer (and, of course, divorce less often) than those with less education. If this is true, then these women do not seem to be jumping ship more quickly than other women.

    When those marriages do end, the claim is that women initiate the divorce 90% of the time. If this is true, it is possible that the woman-initiated divorce rate for that group is less than the others. For example, if the divorce rate for non-college-educated women is 40% and women initiate 65% of those, then the woman-initiated divorce rate for that group is 26%. If the divorce rate for college-educated women is 25% and women initiate 90% of them, then the woman-initiated divorce rate for that group is 22.5%. Not much lower, but a little bit.

  17. @ OKRickety

    Yeah, it’s a percentage based thing.

    College educated women are more likely to stay married. However, those that do divorce are the ones that are initiating the divorces.

    There’s probably multiple factors for this including the fact that men tend to only marry a woman they want to marry (because they’re generally the ones asking out). Women tend to be more at the whim of the quality of suitors they are getting and settling more.

    Also, men that marry younger may go for a divorce later because they become more attractive over time.
