That Mothering Question that Evokes Guilt

So, due to Radical Feminism, young girls are raised to believe that women are supposed to have it all but their personal freedom is absolutely their first priority. This priority should always be met. Usually this freedom is first career, work, j-o-b, independence. The reason this is important is because this is what men grow up thinking about and being trained into. Whatever men fixate on, women should as well. The object of desire is to compete with men, to rival them in life goals. Without said competition, a woman's life is meaningless, because there is nothing else; except sexual identity and freedom. Work and sex and the top 2 priorities for any self respecting Rad Fem. Women fall into various positions on the Radical Feminist spectrum, and their answers to this question ma...
Baby Showers Before Bridal Showers?

Baby Showers Before Bridal Showers?

Having multiple baby showers and never having had a bridal shower or been married, is the new norm. Marriage is so very much passe, they say. After all, it's not necessary to have a man around in order to have a baby, they say. Women can do it all by ourselves, they say. This is the message younger generations hear repetitively in main stream media and perhaps in their own families. However, there has to be push back. There has to come a moment when those of us who are conservative OR those of us who have already been down that road of single parenthood, finally speak the truth, despite the pressure to do otherwise. We have to realize that there is always going to be a younger generation of girls, who will one day grow into womanhood. If these girls have NEVER heard it sang, 'First ...

Allowing Our Daughters Their Right to Femininity

By @the.pinnacle.housewife For future black mothers that blossomed from my womb, Black motherhood for them means not being a single mother. Black motherhood means living in teaching righteously. Black motherhood means birthing at home. Black motherhood means mothering sustainable I to the best of her ability. Black motherhood means being a wife to a highly productive Godly man. Black motherhood means allowing our daughters their right to femininity and girlhood and our sons their right to masculinity and boyhood. Black motherhood means setting an even higher standard for my daughters. For them, we won't celebrate baby showers before bridal showers. They won't immortalize men who haven't married them. There's nothing to gain from that. Black motherhood means not spanking our ...

Despite 40 Years of Feminism, Women are Less Happy

By OLINKA KOSTER Women are less happy nowadays despite 40 years of feminism, a new study claims. Despite having more opportunities than ever before, they have a lower sense of well-being and life satisfaction, it found. The study, The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness, said the same was true for women of different ages and whether or not they were married or had children.It said the results appeared surprising given that modern women had been liberated from their traditional 1950s role of housewife. Instead, their earning power has soared, women are doing better than men in education and they are in control of decisions over whether to start a family. The findings were released as Sir Stuart Rose, chairman of Marks & Spencer, claimed that women 'have never had it ...

How the role of being a mom has changed throughout history

Article by Stacey HutsonUpdated May 9, 2018 The role of a mom is undoubtedly an important one. As a first-time mom-to-be, I have developed a new habit that is taking over my coffee table and racking up my Amazon account long before childbirth even happens. I have become a motherhood book hoarder. Up until now, most of my books have been on the joys (and pains) of pregnancy. But as the big day gets closer, I've started to pay more attention to what I need to do after baby arrives to be the best mother I can be. Of course, "best mother" is a subjective measure. And its definition has changed greatly over the years (as has our understanding of most things). Book searching, in fact, is a great way to see that change. It doesn't tell the whole story but, speaking from experience, a sca...
Hurried Woman Syndrome

Hurried Woman Syndrome

HURRIED WOMAN SYNDROME!!!I once lived the excerpt below but made a firm decision that my next and last marriage would afford me the opportunity to be a present mom, a #SAHM. I would love for all women to slow down and actually experience life and #motherhood from a less stressful and burned out perspective. It all begins with an acknowledgment and a decision to live differently. The "how" will come. Trust."Ms. Hughes and millions of other women have made the choice to give up their all-consuming careers. Why?Largely because the feminist battle cry of “having it all” resulted in lots of stress over a myriad of competing demands for time, guilt for the virtual neglect of children, and longing for more home-and-hearth time.In fact, there is even a new syndrome ascribed to working mothers c...

Ode to the Stay At Home Mom

It's with gratitude that I take time to beautify myself and environment. Go-slow was a well earned decision after years of working outside the home while raising a family. But first, I needed to choose a man who appreciated a woman basking in her #feminine role as wife and Mother. Go-slow can not be accomplished with a man who values a "do-it-all" stressed out, overworking, overwhelmed woman. I know, in my heart, that a majority of women would consider go-slow as a viable choice if they weren't afraid of social and familial condemnation. The excerpt below from Dr. Laura Schlessinger's book sums up my current mood:"If you decide that the most important thing about your life is your worker-ant role, you’ll likely feel drained a lot of the time and resent the obliga...
