I was going to name this post Inverted Values, but I decided to name it the above instead.
Carlotta from Dalrock’s hierarchy equals abuse makes this comment:
Interesting isn’t it? If you work as a nurse for strangers, cook for strangers in a restaurant or teach other people’s children those are heroic career choices. Do any of it for your flesh and blood and you are an oppressed idiot slave.
I reframe it this way when femenists start their crap. I tell them I am a strong and independent women who has made a choice to live my own lifestyle and their bullying and intolerance of my liberated choices will not be tolerated in my safe space. I tell ya, the expressions are priceless.
The real interesting thing is the inversion of values across culture.
- Abortion — No value on children.
- Sex — Pre-marital sex is great. Withholding sex in marriage is good if she doesn’t feel like it.
- Marriage — all marriage is good, except one man-one woman. If you only believe in one man and one woman we’re going to fine you and put you in jail.
- College — If you’re a Christian your campus group isn’t allow. But everyone else can have one. If I educate you in this class correctly, by the end you won’t be a Christian. But no other religion.
- Family — Dad is doofus. The wife and kids know better than him.
- Family — Have 0-2 kids that’s great. Have 5+ kids you’re looked at like you’re crazy.
When you examine it in the context of feminism, it shouldn’t be all that surprising though. They hate everything that God calls blessed.
Obviously, there’s many more examples, but taking care of the family versus taking care of strangers is only another such example of inversion of values. Some are more obvious than others, and Christians also fall for some of them.
Carlotta makes the right choice to confront it head on and make people think about it.
