T’would be nice if feminine were a simple womanly subject. But it’s clouded and crowded with leftist politics and propaganda called Feminism. People have to respond to pressure from outside themselves, and women have endured it for decades. I perceive that women have had about enough of the political side and seek to restore the individual and personal side. This series exposes some background, and it may help.
- Feminism politically empowers females to act like roosters and displace the man as leader of the house. Feminists seek to dominate men in the present. OTOH, Femininity endows the wife with the self-worth, self-image, and self-confidence to rule her rooster by enabling him to rule the roost. IOW, almost without objection she enables husband to dominate the present so she can dominate their future together. It’s a tradeoff made natural by how the sexes are designed to function differently.
- Feminism produces an attitude of ingratitude for manly behavior. It alienates and pushes men away from relationships except in pursuit of sex. Femininity produces an attitude of gratitude that attracts men and uses each female’s personal assets and appealing attractions to hold onto one man, hopefully a permanent mate.
- Feminism elevates sex above marriage, encourages eroticism, promotes sex for pleasure, accepts promiscuity, stimulates pornography, allows sexual activity among children, and fails to discourage such things and moral issues when opened for public discussion. Femininity subordinates sex to marriage, rejects eroticism out of modesty, disdains promiscuity as alien to relationship success, educates against porn as destructive to kids and family, protects children from adult sexual license, promotes morality as best interest of women, and expects domestic behavior to confine sex to the marital bed and thus extend relationship longevity.
- Feminism discourages women from supporting men who exploit their masculine advantages. Feminists expect to alter the male nature to reduce masculine strengths. OTOH, Femininity capitalizes on male strengths, compensates for weaknesses of both sexes, and eagerly helps build and maintain a man’s castle. It happens naturally. Women are made compatible with men by their drive to nest, nurture, and nestle with loved ones and a man’s need for a place to flop, eat, throw his things, and prepare to fight tomorrow’s dragons.
- Feminism relies on and promotes the masculine games of might makes right, rule of man, winning is more important than how one plays the game, and the end justifies the mean. Femininity relies on and promotes the females’ instinctive preference for right makes might, rule of law, how one plays the game shows respect for others, and respectable means deliver admirable ends.
- Feminism focuses on making men unnecessary and dispensable in order to uplift females in legal, political, economic, social, and domestic stature. Men have to lose for women to gain, as if a zero-sum game. OTOH, Femininity focuses on the high value and indispensability of men in order to uplift women and children above the common place and into a brighter future.
Femininity softens a woman’s heart against blaming others. Embedded in her heart, it is her more productive side for dealing with men. Keeping herself out of the combative mode of feminists, her man is encouraged to think about staying rather than escaping her.
