The Cosby family and Ozzie and Harriett home exemplified on TV what our foremothers sought and achieved—albeit incompletely and imperfectly. These and similar shows are mocked today by feminists and political activists. Yet, real women before the 1960s were far happier and more successful than modern women when dealing with men.
Womanhood split in the 1960s. Many women and young girls became radicalized and politicized by the sexual and cultural revolutions. They removed Womanhood from the driver’s seat of culture.
It cost women in many ways: They lost the unconditional respect of men for the female sex. They elevated unmarried sex and played to the manly game of irresponsibility for offspring. They devalued personal virtue and family integrity, and this led to family instability. They motivated men generally against marriage and spending a lifetime with the same woman.
Plus, one great unintended consequence: Women bashed men socially and attacked them legally and politically to tear down male dominance.
The effect: They restored male dominance to prominence. Men now put masculine interests for independence, toys, adventures, and trophies ahead of helping fulfill female hopes and dreams.
Men rather than women dominate cultural values today. It’s done primarily through the pop culture and compounds for the worse into each new generation.
Consequently, modern women and children lose more easily and dependably in this game we call life. Some women don’t know how, and others won’t pay the price, to strengthen their family with a devoted husband and father.
