The despair at the end game of feminism

Pretty heartbreaking story honestly. Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst jumped to her death at 30 years old.

Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst penned a heart-rending essay last year reflecting on the pressures of getting older, the need to achieve – and her battle with online trolls who bullied her over her looks.

Kryst, 30, who tragically jumped to her death from her Midtown high-rise Sunday morning, wrote candidly in an essay for Allure about overcoming the crushing expectations she once placed on herself after she “nearly worked myself to death.

“I discovered that the world’s most important question, especially when asked repeatedly and answered frankly, is: why?,” Kryst wrote of her change in thinking.

“Why work so hard to capture the dreams I’ve been taught by society to want when I continue to only find emptiness?”

“A grinning, crinkly-eyed glance at my achievements thus far makes me giddy about laying the groundwork for more, but turning 30 feels like a cold reminder that I’m running out of time to matter in society’s eyes — and it’s infuriating,” she wrote.

As we know, the obvious answer is feminism is an empty push for accomplishments that does not satisfy anyone. It appeals to pride, envy, and greed which all end in despair.

By all worldly measures she had it all:

The lengthy March 2021 essay provided insight into the mindset of Kryst, who posted a cryptic message on her Instagram page before she jumped, writing, “May this day bring you rest and peace.” …

Kryst went on in her Allure piece to say that “after a year like 2020, you would think we’d learned that growing old is a treasure and maturity is a gift not everyone gets to enjoy.

“Far too many of us allow ourselves to be measured by a standard that some sternly refuse to challenge and others simply acquiesce to because fitting in and going with the flow is easier than rowing against the current,” Kryst continued.

“Each time I say ‘I’m turning 30,’ I cringe a little,” she wrote. “Sometimes I can successfully mask this uncomfortable response with excitement; other times, my enthusiasm feels hollow, like bad acting.

“Society has never been kind to those growing old, especially women. (Occasional exceptions are made for some of the rich and a few of the famous.).

“I fought this fight before and it’s the battle I’m currently fighting with 30,” she wrote. “How do I shake society’s unwavering norms when I’m facing the relentless tick of time? It’s the age-old question: What happens when ‘immovable’ meets ‘unstoppable?’”

Kryst cited her impressive academic achievements — notably earning a law degree and an MBA at the same time at Wake Forest University after her undergraduate studies at the University of South Carolina, where she was a track athlete.

“I joined a trial team at school and won a national championship. I competed in moot court; won essay competitions; and earned local, regional, and national executive board positions,” Kryst wrote.

“I nearly worked myself to death, literally, until an eight-day stint in a local hospital sparked the development of a new perspective,” she said.

As for her less-than-conventional views, Kryst wrote, “Women who compete in pageants are supposed to have a middle-of-the-road opinion — if any — so as not to offend.

“I talked candidly about my views on the legalization of marijuana, the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, anti-abortion laws, the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and the successes and failures of criminal justice reform.”

So you have a girl who has tons of accomplishments:

  • MBA and a lawyer
  • Track and field athlete
  • Tons of extracurriculars that she excelled in
  • Won Miss USA title
  • Had a beach body that many would envy probably

All these things don’t bring happiness.

Ironically, it’s usually the women who are wives and mothers who have the higher happiness and satisfaction with life. Perhaps because it was in alignment with God’s original intent in Creation. Both in those who believe in Him, but also the general positive outcomes following the principles despite whether one is a believer or not.

Kryst ended her contemplative essay by saying she marked her milestone birthday in her apartment, “parading around in a black silk top, matching shorts, and a floor-length robe while scarfing down banana pudding and screening birthday calls.

“I even wore my crown around the apartment for most of the day knowing I’d have to give it back at the end of my reign as Miss USA. I did what I wanted rather than the expected,” she wrote.

“Now, I now enter year 30 searching for joy and purpose on my own terms — and that feels like my own sweet victory,” Kryst said.

The other thing that tends to happen is you have women becoming careerists. They climb the corporate ladder, but that leads to them staying single and personality changes that drive away men. Then they cry out about where have all the good men gone?

As we know from the paradoxical decline of female happiness.

By many objective measures the lives of women in the United States have improved over the past 35 years, yet we show that measures of subjective well-being indicate that women’s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men. The paradox of women’s declining relative well-being is found across various datasets, measures of subjective well-being, and is pervasive across demographic groups and industrialized countries. Relative declines in female happiness have eroded a gender gap in happiness in which women in the 1970s typically reported higher subjective well-being than did men. These declines have continued and a new gender gap is emerging — one with higher subjective well-being for men.

Ain’t no surprise the more you deviate from how God created women to be the more they’ll be unhappy. Women aren’t meant to be like men and/or god as feminism pushes them to be.

Societal expectations are chains that only ensnare and destroy despite how pretty they are to the eye. But trying to find your own way from them almost always leads to ruin too without the truth.

The only real thing that can break the chains is Jesus.

If you have daughters warn them of these things so they are not ensnared and entrapped by the pretty things of the world that only lead to death.

    Exactly. That’s why it’s so sad when I hear people talk about religion as if that’s the thing enslaving people. Everything you wrote in this post is exactly what I thought when I read about the untimely death of Kryst. It is very unfortunate how so many, myself included, think/thought that by casting off religious expectations it freed us from burdens. If only more people read the entire Bible, instead of the parts others used to chain them down…they’d find out liberating it is to simply trust in God, to cast their concerns on him and have faith that he’s guiding us down the best path.

    I kind of felt sorry for her. Then I saw the BLM “black power” fist on her Instagram.

    A sad story. She was a very driven super high achiever, but the only thing she had that would attract male commitment was beauty. All of her other achievements would be considered as a possible competition to a man who would otherwise commit. I am sure she had lots of encouragement from her parents and female peers.

    Women tend to be consensus oriented and very competitive with each other. A lot of the encouragement she received from other women was really part of the crab bucket where crabs pull each other down.

    Society, which is really the female consensus does value beauty and as a woman gets older she loses beauty in the eyes of other women. This thing called ‘society’ is really female social consensus. To refer to ‘it’ as society is just was way of avoiding accountability. The feminist ‘sisterhood’ is a myth. Women will sabotage each other whenever feasible.

    The only way a woman can retain her beauty is to commit to and respect a man. The marital bond when sustained (yes, that means monogamous sex) will keep her husbands seeing her as the slim perky breasted, wrinkle free thing he fell in love with.

    She was never told she needed to be, or how to be, a wife.

    It’s hard for me to muster up any sympathy for privileged people like her or Eliott Rodger when they step off the reservation. There’s people in the world who’d kill to have the kinds of backgrounds and opportunities that they had.

  6. Jonadab-the-Rechabite says:

    It reads like a feminist version of Ecclesiastics: “Vanity of vanities, all is but vanity….. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:Fear God and keep His commandments,
    For this is man’s all.

  7. fuzziewuzziebear says:

    I saw this and wanted to share. Feminists see themselves as being hit from all sides. In this, they tell us how they have been abandoned by the Democratic Party.

    It is awfully hard to feel sorry for them. God has a plan. It works, but they wanted to try something else.

    I kind of felt sorry for her. Then I saw the BLM “black power” fist on her Instagram.

    I feel a bit worse. It’s just so easy for people to be deceived these days.

    I hate to come across as callous, but her obsession with turning 30 —30, fortheluvvagod, as if that’s some sort of mortal expiration code– struck me as being incredibly shallow, vain, and narcissistic and erased whatever residual sympathy I might have had for her.

    On the other hand, I will allow that perhaps her fixation on this particular age was driven by innate biological urges that she could not understand, or just as likely was conditioned by her upbringing to ignore. Unless she left behind more than what’s published here, her final communique makes no mention of any relationship with the opposite sex. Her lifestyle made it unlikely that she had time for one, at least not with any man who would be interested in committing to her. In that sense “30” represents a hard concrete wall indeed.

    Chelsie Kryst’s life and tragic death serve as a warning to other young American woman. It’s just too bad that very few are likely to perceive it as such.

    Thank you for your thoughtful words. Your last paragraph really touched my heart…my husband and I have been married for 44 years. We met when we were 17 and clueless. Only through the power of God, we grew as persons and also in our relationship…as husband and wife. I can honestly say that when my hubby looks into my eyes, I feel truly beautiful, because beauty is what he sees in me❤️

  11. blmaluso says:

    So sad that she was never taught…or did not understand…her true beauty as a child of God.
