Check out the first thing I saw when I opened my email over coffee.
How NOT to choose a husband?
According to author Suzanne Venker to find a husband all you need to do is “just be nice, cook, and have sex!”
That’s just part of the no-hassle formula Venker prescribes young women in her new advice book, How to Choose a Husband, out next week. As it turns out, being completely submissive and giving up on your dreams to marriage and motherhood is the best way to maintain a healthy relationship.
Well, now. I know we’re not completely sold out on Venker as an “anti-feminist” around these parts, but come on now…this is good, old-fashioned marriage material. I’m especially fond of the “you go girl” mentality commentary.
Later in the brief article written by some barely literate, self-proclaimed Yahoo Shine! feminist
office-drone journalist, the authoress of the article shares this little gem:
I may be a feminist, but that fact doesn’t prevent me from believing that there are men in this world who want to be married to a smart, successful woman who has professional goals that are independent from her marriage. I also believe that there are men out there who care about other things in life than just sex.
It’s a fairly large assumption to make-that all men want a return to a 1950s mentality, when their family was completely dependent on the success of their job. And just because a marriage survives doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a happy one.
Amazing. Really, a miserable, intact marriage is a horrible thing, indeed. Just read a few lines of comments on any manosphere blog. But it’s advice like this gal is doling out to millions of young girls, poring over their PC this morning at
office dress-up work, that is actually causing these girls to be cat ladies in their forties.
Believe me, I’ve been an office-drone, and a young woman who wanted to “pursue her professional goals” often ends up as an office drone even after years of University studies and tens of thousands in student loans. Yup, sitting in a cubicle, girls. Sounds “empowering”, doesn’t it? Not. Trust me, most of the girls sitting in cubicles cry themselves to sleep at night, begging for a chance to just wear a beautiful white gown with little pearl buttons down the back and marrying a good man who will “take care” of them. It’s the cry of every girl’s heart: it’s put there by her creator, unless she is one of the very, very few called to a lifetime of celibacy.
Why fight it, girls?
In closing, the Shine! authoress states:
You could take Venker’s advice from How to Choose a Husband and live a life of submission. But why would you sell yourself short when you could marry a guy who loves you for you, when you’re prancing about in your high heels on your way to work?
There it is. The feminist “money-shot”. Why would YOU (you precious princess, you) sell yourSELF short to be a wife and mother (ewww!) when YOU could marry a “guy” who loves YOU for YOU?
“It’s all about YOU, Princess.”
Well, guess what? It’s not. “You” were created to serve and help your husband for life. Ask most men, and they’ll tell you they, indeed, do NOT want a wife who has “professional goals” independent of her marriage. That’s a death-blow to the marriage. Yes, the office-drone can land a submissive and subservient feminist man who will enjoy her (for a short while)…but he will know, in the depths of his Blue Pill soul, that something is wrong with the marriage in which he finds himself suffering with his “empowered, independent,
office drone professional.”
(Especially when she screeches at him at 7 p.m. to get dinner on the table because her feet are just killing her, what with wearing those heels at the office all day!)
