I listened to this and read some of the tweets. When the state not only decides but mandates what our children are taught and people are forced/taxed to pay for a system they do not agree with, we are in fact a socialist society. This is happening not just in Great Britain but in our country as well. The sex education curriculum in our schools is appalling.
There was no need for a violent revolution. We gave them our children and they trained them up to be comrades.
We are all in a dither today over LGBTQ but we should have known it was coming when we stood by and got steam rolled by the feminist movement 40 yrs ago. When we told young girls you can be anything you want to be, let them in West Point, legalized abortion, and insisted they hold board room positions instead of showing them the beauty of being women, we invited in the Trojan horse.
We had dear old friends here for dinner last week. We've known them for ages. Trump supporters. After dessert our discussion got off onto gender equality and became quite heated. When I expressed a traditional BIBLICAL, Catholic point of view, I was shouted down by our friend -- Not the wife, the husband. He emailed the next morning to apologize and I have forgiven him; however, I don't think I will ever be able to convince or even discuss the fallacy of feminism with him again. The shocking thing to me is that he and his wife both don't see that caving on the very form and structure of the family unit with a mother in the home has wrecked society at large.
People say it's easy enough for me to say this because I was "fortunate enough" to be able to stay home and raise my kids. Well, "fortune" had nothing to do with it. And it sure wasn't "fortune" that allowed my mother and grandmother to do it either. The credit goes to the men who valued what we did enough to want us there. Today people are addicted to "stuff"-----cars, vacations, mega houses, restaurants, shoes, electronics and they use gender equality as the excuse to have it. It does take more money to get more stuff. With that I agree. But it is shocking to note that so many millions have been willing to sacrifice their kids to daycare for stuff, and after school care for stuff, and summer camp for still more stuff.
Another sad fact is that women today seldom develop a circle of close women friends like they used to. People they can confide in or depend on in an emergency. No one borrows a cup of sugar from a neighbor anymore. No one helps another hang the wallpaper or decide which wall the sofa looks best on, or how to divide perennials. There's no one to laugh with over things only women think are funny.
Most women today are "in the workforce" like good comrades, leaving the grooming of their offspring to the state. They get things like promotions and paid leave and impressive titles, but what they have lost is people who sense when they need a shoulder to cry on or a little cheering up through a hard spot. The kind of chat women used to get on a regular basis over a cup of tea and a slice of banana bread.
"Well, yes, but those women, a lot of them, were frustrated and needed to get out of the house," we are told.
Really? Or was it that women were told they were, or ought to be frustrated and they left their home and their kids in pursuit of a dream, a communist dream, that was never their own? Now they have as much "stuff" as their neighbors, but what they lost was the knight in shining armor who calls out at the end of the day, "Honey, I'm home."
