KNIGHT: In a class by themselves
Home-schooled girls easily dispatch both chauvinism and feminism
Question of the Day
They also take issue with feminists’ role in promoting promiscuity, and the decline of marriage, which is the real “war on women.”
“We are fast approaching the point of no return in terms of the harms from casual sex, cohabitation and the growing number of single mothers,” writes Janice Shaw Crouse, senior fellow for CWA’s Beverly LaHaye Institute. “Re-establishing the walls of morality, faith, and marriage is no longer something that would be merely nice; it is a vital necessity for the well-being of the nation’s girls and women.”
Far from being sheltered and ignorant, as feminists portray Christian women, the CWA ladies are nobody’s fools. Mr. Markos could have been talking about them when he wrote of home-schooled girls: “They have the wit and discernment to perceive that the feminist is finally a greater threat than the male chauvinist: For whereas the chauvinist demeans femininity, the feminist dismisses it altogether as a social construct that has no essential grounding in our God-created soul.” It’s no wonder feminists hate the feminine Sarah Palin with white-hot intensity.
When I was at the Hoover Institution doing research for “The Age of Consent,” I was amazed at the amount of material in Stanford’s library and courses that exalts gender confusion. Androgyny was the wave of the future, and feminism the underlying creed.
Years later, after working with brilliant women such as Jan LaRue, Sandy Rios, Charmaine Yoest, Cathy Cleaver Ruse, Wendy Wright, Elaine Donnelly, Penny Young Nance, Susan Carleson and many other confident, accomplished Christian women, including many pro-family volunteers, I feel sorry for girls who are marinated in feminist ideology via government schools and our predatory popular culture.
Increasingly, they are given the false choice of misusing their sexuality, as Miley Cyrus does, or keeping a chip the size of an anvil on their shoulders.
A third way is to seek God’s wisdom in how to live life fully, like the accomplished woman in Proverbs 31: 25-26: “Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness.”
