Applying to college in high school puts young women on a life-long, stress filled treadmill. And, unfortunately, they will find it nearly impossible to get off the treadmill once they start, without disappointing their parents, who spent a fortune sending them there.
Or, more importantly, disappointing themselves, their co-workers, their feminist female friends and peers when they realize that their bliss revolves around daydreams of getting married and having babies, rather than practicing law or being a corporate accountant.
This should NOT be. If a young woman wants to stay home, and marry, that’s what she should be allowed to do because, unless her college degree will help her to improve her family’s business, it is, in most cases, a waste of her precious time and talents, which are better used for the betterment of her family and her community.
And be assured, even if she doesn’t go to college, she will still find her bliss because young women’s communal contributions have always been an integral part of the fabric that knits a small town together.
In addition, young women are the guarantors of the future because without young mothers, and their children, a community eventually grows old and dies.
We have all witnessed this type of decay, a thousand times over, in nearly every region of America, because too many young women leave home to attend college and never return, but for an occasional visit.
A college degree for women is fraught with conflicts because despite securing the expensive degree, establishing the career, expensing the salary and, adopting the feminist lifestyle – the maternal desire for marriage and children does not disappear.
Today, the acceptable concession to this need is called a “working mother.”
Sounds simple doesn’t it? But it isn’t.
This obsessive compulsive behavior often begins with young parents stressing-out over getting their 3-year-old into the right college prep, pre-school!
This irrational preoccupation with college and “career” doesn’t make sense because it is based on the misguided ideology of anti-Christian, radical, second-wave feminism and the female, baby boomers who define its agenda.
To those old hags – it’s ALWAYS been all about the “career”, now, then and in the future. To them, nothing else matters – not the women themselves, their families, their children, their communities and certainly not the men.
This short-sighted, narrow-minded feminist “knowing” seeks to prove one thing – that women are superior to men in every forum but especially at work. So, to this end, women MUST have a “career”.
And so, the feminist rat race goes on and on, for decades at a time, while denying one generation of women after another, the simple pleasures of family life, unaffected by the demands of a “career”.
If the rat race continues to fruition, and the young woman attains her mother’s goal of attending college, when she finally graduates from college, it is here that the 20 year pursuit of “career” is exposed as a fraud.
The young graduate’s newly acquired job’s salary, rarely offsets the tremendous expense of her four-year college degree, thus forcing many women to continue to work to pay off $100,000+ in student loans, well beyond their interest in their “career.”
But more disturbing is the fact that most graduates don’t find jobs in their field, and for those who do, the hours are awful and the “rewards” are few, and the expenses are many, thus stretching their limited salaries to the breaking point.
So, they either quit their jobs and come home to live in order to save money or they continue to pretend they are finding success in their “career”, while continuing to rack up more and more debt.
Either way, they eventually end up back home, where they started. The only difference is that AFTER attending college, they return home in debt, debauched, disappointed and deflated to take whatever job they can find. What a waste.
Where is the upside Mom? Being able to tell your feminist friends that your daughter went to college?
Sorry. It’s not worth the price she will have to pay, literally and figuratively.
Today, the colleges TAKE EVERYTHING the families, and their precious daughters, have, AND the institutions don’t even guarantee the graduate a JOB (career) in return!
And to make matters worse, the girl’s families, home town friends and communities miss them desperately.
For those few young women, who are “lucky” enough to find a “good” job after graduation, and buck-the-feminist-system as well, choosing to marry AND have children, the pressures of “career” turns their homes into virtual pit-stops, and their children’s schools into babysitters.
Soon, as the demands and responsibilities of their illustrious “careers” escalates and these “working mothers” become more and more immersed in the weighty world of work. They are eventually FORCED, by the inescapable demands of their “careers”, to waste their lives, and their God-given talents, aspiring to please the inanimate, unresponsive, heartless corporations, institutions or agencies for which they work, rather than expending their talents on those they truly love and cherish!
Why waste your life on a treadmill that never gets you what you truly desire? Get back to God’s original plan and let the Christian men deal with the world of work instead! They are better suited temperamentally for business anyway because they are specifically designed, and remanded, by God to provide for, and protect, their families.
So, as long as parents continue to raise their daughters as though there were no other choice but to pursue a “career” by attending college in another state, radical, second-wave feminism prevails.
And, by failing to embrace the traditional roles of young women as wives, mothers and community leaders, and instead, sending millions of girls off to college, everyone loses.
The truth is that it would be MUCH better for everyone – financially, spiritually, physically and emotionally – if the daughters stayed close to home, just as they have for thousands of years.
Staying close to home to safely marry a nice local guy, whose family, her family, has known for generations. Staying close to home to marry and have six great kids, who will some day lovingly care for her in her declining years and then happily carry on the family traditions after she’s gone.
If young women stayed locally, they would be another link in the life of their family, and their community, contributing daily to the well-being and happiness of those they love, rather than trying to unsuccessfully, foolishly and ludicrously transform their co-workers into the “family” they denied themselves while sacrificing their lives on pointless feminist “careers”.
The generational connection to home, friends, and family builds and strengthens, not only the women, but the community as well.
Attaining maturity and a sincere sense of responsibility are the inherent results of this interdependency and intermarriage among Christian people who are intimately known to each other.
As a result, the community becomes a cohesive network of trust, understanding and forgiveness allowing its inhabitants, specially its children, to thrive and flourish unfettered by malice, fear or suspicion because everyone knows and cares for everyone.
Most Christian small towns in America functioned under this self-regulating guardianship until radical, second-wave feminism reared its ugly head in the late 1960s and early 1970s. What a loss for everyone, but especially for the women.
If the young women want to attend college, do it locally, so they are home at night and better
protected from the debauchery so prevalent on today’s college campus’.
Debauchery that is inflicted on young innocent women, with the college’s benign approval, by classmates who are total strangers, and who lack ANY accountability for their behavior to you, your daughter, your family or your community.
And, when they want to marry locally, support those dreams too. Encourage the young men to become the bread-winner and teach your daughters faith and frugality.
The ordinary troubles of daily living will naturally come but the young couple will have lots of family and friends to help them through the age-old difficulties of married life.
And, the remainder of the Christian community, functioning under the protection and care of the men whose families have sustained it for generations, will take care of the rest.
There is no doubt that working is a waste of good women because they are desperately needed at home. (If you don’t think you can “afford” to stay home, read Danielle Wagasky’s blog – www.blissfulanddomestic.com to see that you can.)
Thanks to the insidiousness of radical, second-wave feminism generations of young women have erroneously spend their lives concentrating on “careers” that will never matter in the long run, while denying themselves, their relatives and their communities the joy of their many unborn children, who, unlike the government, will happily help see them safely into the unknown future defined by aging.
So, rather than sending all of our young women away to college to find feminist “careers”, leaving an aging populous behind to cope with the loss – keep them home.
Most of the really important and rewarding commitments in life revolve around the needs of family, friends and neighbors in your small town anyway. So, let them stay and enjoy them.
It’s time to give-up-the-ghost and let the girls stay home, marry and have as many children as they’d like, guilt free. They will manage just fine and we, as a country, will be better off for their joyous efforts.
Remember, despite what radical, second-wave feminism wants you to believe, NO ONE has ever regretted having “too many” children.
And, the real truth, which they don’t want you to know, is that thanks to radical feminism there are millions of aging, “liberated”, “career women” who deeply regret denying themselves the children they can now no longer have.
It’s the Women, Not the Men! to be continued…
