Feminist Bitterly Resents How Other Women Have Found Happiness

Amy Glass hates that some women have chosen to find happiness in marriage and family life.

Every time I hear someone say that feminism is about validating every choice a woman makes I have to fight back vomit.

Having kids and getting married are considered life milestones. We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it’s a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with.

Apparently, she has a lot of bitterness toward marriage and family, as evidenced by her other posts.

Studies consistently show that women who choose marriage and family life are happier than bitter feminists. Unfortunately, the dominant strain of feminism is closely aligned with left-wing collectivism; individuals achieving their own happiness through their own choices is not an acceptable paradigm. The Sisterhood (meaning the feminist leadership) will support only those choices that empower The Sistershood (meaning those who have positioned themselves at the top of the feminist leadership).

And maybe it’s just a case of turning sour grapes into bitter Feminist whine.

  1. I love being a wife and mother.

    I hate it that finding my happiness in family is viewed as somehow less as climbing a corporate ladder.

  3. It is interesting therefore to consider the fact that a Japanese woman who has a profession will be forced by social pressure to give up that profession if she marries. It is a fact that marriage is in retreat in Japan. It seems to be a fact that marriage is less attractive in those societies in which education has a high priority. And in which professional level jobs are available.

    Perhaps marriage as currently perceived by the gay conservative will be a choice more commonly seen in those classes who now procreate but lightly marry if living wage jobs are more available in practice than in theory.

  4. I also thought feminism was about choice. That has morphed in the “correct choice”. Feminism now is the “man hating club” and the man as a “sperm donor/ATM” club (see Mrs. Clinton). The bitter unhappy feminists are the one with such severe personality flaws that no man will go near them. Bitterness and resentment are usually rooted in jealousy.

    Michael… Please post later in the day… It is too early for chocolate and red wine!

  5. Tnn, America is all about choice and free exercise of one’s conscience. Amy Glass has no power to alter your choices, excepting you rent her space in your head.

  6. Except that Progressives like Amy Glass see it as their duty to go into Government and force everyone to live according to their prerogatives. e.g. Obamacare, soda bans, Title IX.

  7. When I read Stonewall, the take-home message I got was insight into the infiltration and radicalization of the gay rights movement in the 1960s, and ultimately the violent overthrow by the Progressives who became the modern Democrat party. Many “Fringe” groups at same time, including it seems the Feminists, were also victims. I have to wonder if there is a “Feminist Patriot” blog somewhere made up of conservatives who escaped the left wing assimilation camps.

  8. V the K, Title ix is not exactly current news. But how on earth can it be troubling for you if women can box in the summer Olympics? Amy Glass has the same relevance for conservatives as Megyn Kelly.

    How so Michael? Prove it with all the facts.

  10. I have the privilege of knowing a very thoughtful atheist. He doesn’t believe in the god(s) put forth in any scripture, calling them “constructs of faith,” but he does acknowledge that these “constructs” are not whole-cloth lies; instead, they are imperfect human attempts to articulate a metaphysical reality, a set of laws and theorems and rules that govern the universe in a manner that is eerily similar to an intelligence. He calls it the “self-defining equation” whenever he talks about it.

    Anyways, he once made an observation that has stuck with me for a while: Religious people accept that their life will not play out the way they want it to because the world is imperfect, and that sacrifice is a way for them to morally grow and improve. People who believe that there is nothing mystical or supernatural about life, who “reduce the universe to a bunch of equations,” are in a mad scramble to maximize their pleasure/pain ratio before they face oblivion; they are never happy with the happiness and pleasure they have, and they wind up miserable, and they inevitably wind up making others around them miserable in a spiteful attempt to make sure their pleasure in life was greater than someone else.

  11. “Tnn, America is all about choice and free exercise of one’s conscience”

    Really, you ranted on and on and on and on and on about the bakers not having a choice on baking a cake for a homosexual couple?

    Obama insists that people buy insurance? Obama insists that nuns buy birth control for their workers.

    You exemplify all that is wrong with progressvism. You have fluid arguments that contradict each other. Situational morality is the stuff of the teenage mind. Progressives are stuck in adolescence.

  13. Modern feminism is of a piece with modern Progressivism/Democrats: they’re all about free choice so long as the choice–and the speech, and the economics, and the etc–align with their own.

    But let a woman, or a black, or a homosexual stray from the approved path, and they’re Evil, self-haters, Uncle Toms, etc–sub-human objects of Progressive contempt.

    For me, the opprobrium of a Progressive is a badge of honor.

  14. Ironically, if they want an example of a woman who achieved it all, they have no further to look than Sarah Palin.

    Even more ironically, THEY are the ones who arguably stopped her from having even more than she already had.

  15. Everyone makes their own choices in life, but this Communist woman loathes anyone that is not like herself. Typical far leftist that is intolerant of anyone that disagrees with her “perfectness”. She ought to rot in a dumpster.

    Funny, TN, I often think the same of libertarians.

    Unless you’re a baker who doesn’t want to make a cake for a gay wedding, or a chemist who doesn’t want to dispense abortion pills, or a law abiding citizen who wants to own a gun in NYC, DC, or Chicago.

  20. Bit noticed there were 19 comments on this thread, and I thought “Ah, Michael has dropped his usual pearls of wisdom. Too bad in this country of “choice and free exercise of one’s conscience”, The majority of people here are choosing to not to ascribe to his beliefs. Thank God!

  23. Tnn at #11. No American is obliged to buy health insurance as a result of the approval of PPACa. Every American who is able to use the healthplan exhanges must choose to buy. Of that portion of Americans who can use the healthplan exchanges, any who desires it can choose not to buy. And choose to pay a fee or a tax. But which ever, the bottom line is free choice.

    As for nuns, if their program is not established as a church which has state and federal protections but in fact is a business serving the public, then the regulations applicable to businesses apply. It is the American way.

    Comment by Michael — January 27, 2014 @ 11:26 pm - January 27, 2014

  24. Wow. “No American is obliged to buy health insurance.”

    Um, or face fines Mikey. The Government REQUIRES you to enter into a contract with a private organization, or pay fines. That you continue to lie is amazing.

    Then again it’s clear you don’t understand freedom of religion.

    Using your logic, sodomy laws are just fine and dandy. “As for gays, they can be gay which is protected, but if they engage in sodomy then the regulations applicable to sodomy apply. It is the American way.”

    Why do you support those laws Mikey?

    Comment by The_Livewire — January 28, 2014 @ 7:19 am - January 28, 2014

  25. The_L, you are wrong in your thinking about force and PPACA. An American must “choose” a course away from purchase by an act of conscience. There is absolutely no force involved. Informed Americans rarely bet against accidents but there is no law that requires one to have health insurance.

    Perhaps you are not aware that any sexual act that might have been called “sodomy” at a time in the past is lawful if part of a consensual arrangement. Members of legislatures and courts began to notice that people who were movers and shakers and donors were found flagrante making love with their faces.

    Comment by Michael — January 28, 2014 @ 6:03 pm - January 28, 2014

  26. Shorter Michael. I can’t argue against facts so I’ll lie some more.

    “There is no law that requires one to have health insurance.” You’ve just proved all you can do is lie.

    Comment by The_Livewire — January 29, 2014 @ 9:45 am - January 29, 2014

  27. The_L, PPACA offers a path to the purchase of health insurance for a portion of the population. The majority of Americans have insurance and cannot use the healthplan exhanges. Likely that group includes you. But every one who is without insurance is free to choose to buy or not buy. CHOICE, the American Way. Generally speaking, it is foolish not to have health insurance. But an adult can CHOOSE to be foolish. Only in America, eh.

    Then the PPACA was unnecessary, Michael, because prior to it, every American had the option to buy or not buy health insurance with no financial penalty assessed to the government to them whatsoever.

    Since your Obama has screamed that requiring women to pay for their own birth control limits freedoms and is unconstitutional, it is established that requiring people to pay for anything, including fines, limits freedoms and is unconstitutional.

    Therefore, by Obama’s own statements, PPACA limits freedom and is unconstitutional.

    You lose, malicious liar and bigot.

  29. ND30, you no doubt have been one lucky American because, apparently, you have never learned that you would not be able to renew a policy because you have developed a “pre-existing condition”. The majority of Americans have health insurance that covers reproductive health issues. PPACA does not address the needs of a majority, just that part of the citizenry that did not have insurance, that could not get insurance for 1) lack of money or 2) for fact of pre-existing condition or 3) for having exceeded the lifetime cap on coverage.

    Are you in some way affected personally by the presence of contraception coverage within an insurance policy? If a woman in another town has an abortion, are you reduced as a citizen to second class status?

  30. ND30, you no doubt have been one lucky American because, apparently, you have never learned that you would not be able to renew a policy because you have developed a “pre-existing condition”

    Actually, silly Mikey, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, passed by a Republican Congress, endorsed by Republicans, and opposed by Barack Obama and the Obama Party, explicitly limits pre-existing condition exclusions.

    It is a mark of the ignorance of Barack Obama that he insisted this law had never been passed. It is a mark of your ignorance and lack of education that you were not aware of it.

    And that continues.

    Are you in some way affected personally by the presence of contraception coverage within an insurance policy? If a woman in another town has an abortion, are you reduced as a citizen to second class status?

    Comment by Michael — January 29, 2014 @ 1:56 pm – January 29, 2014

    Yes.

    If you were an educated and intelligent person, Mikey, you would know that the purpose of insurance plans is the consolidation of risk.

    The taking on of additional risk increases the likelihood that a plan will need to pay out, which increases the cost of all individuals in the plan.

    Perhaps you are, like Barack Obama, ignorant of how insurance works. Your Barack Obama, for example, paid only for liability insurance because he did not wish to spend the money for greater coverage, but then demanded that his collision bill be paid later when he caused an accident. Had the insurance company done so, other participants would have been negatively affected and had their premiums raised.

    Your ignorance of the fact that contraception coverage increases cost and penalizes those who were previously paying their own bills demonstrates your lack of intelligence and understanding of insurance. Clearly you should educate yourself rather than appearing a fool in front of people who actually know of which they are speaking.

  31. ND30, how is it that Maine is the only state in the US known to have a prohibition against policy cancellation if a pre-existing condition appears at renewal time? There is something missing in your analysis.

    Have you ever taken time to read the terms of coverage in your current insurance policy–if you currently have one? It might amaze you to learn that reproductive health is important enough to have coverage in most insurance policies. Early identification of reproductive issues tends to cost the corporate interests less than when terminal is the diagnosis. But perhaps your prostrate is on its own.
