Sandra Fluke appeals publicly for government-paid contraception. Author Patrice Lewis’ article argues against it at http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/sex-and-the-single-girl/. The following quotes from that article are highly favored by me, because they bring the subject on-theme for this blog. My comments are in brackets.
- “Historically, women have been the standard-bearers of decency. We were admired for our morals, our virtue, our civilizing effect. By our behavior, we turned men into gentlemen.” [Men settled the American West and generated industrialization but women civilized both. Now, society becomes less civilized as each new generation shrouds the concept of lady with unpopularity; gentlemanly behavior fades and gentlemen become extinct.]
- “Do you recognize the damage the feminist movement has done to women? Rather than having society admire us for our minds (which, presumably, was a central tenet of feminism to begin with), women are admired for their ability to “express themselves sexually.” [As the direct result, marital responsibility dies among men, women are dumped, and children are abandoned more easily and predictably than ever before.]
- “Look, there are women all over this nation who spend their whole lives doing the right thing. They restrain their animal urges. They moderate the baser urges of men. And if they make a mistake (and don’t we all?), they don’t repeat it.” [Recovery is everything, and so wiser women adopt the strategy and practice virtual virginity.]
I love it when pretty women write so quotably in parallel with WhatWomenNeverHear.
