This certainly registered on my WTF-o-meter- Above Rubies

So, you're either a beautiful flower of fundie womanhood or you're trying to be a man?

 

The logic of this article blows my mind. She starts off by saying that the women who aren't serene and perfectly behaved aren't feminine. However, if you're worried about your own perfection, you're not feminine either.

 

Since women obviously can't win, by the time I got halfway through the article I just wanted to put up my feet and eat ice cream out of the container. And since this lady thinks we all look bad in jeans anyway, who cares about the calories?

PS And MADONNA as one of the "leading examples of female accomplishment"??!! :confusion-questionmarks:

I had the bumper sticker on my old myspace page "Well behaved women rarely make history". This is my motto and I stand by it !

They list "strength" both under what womanly traits should be, and masculine traits that women should definitely NOT aspire to.

Oh god, I'm so confused... :P

Someone better copy it because she seems to have upset her readers. Read the comments, most disagree with her. Prepare for the post being removed. ;)

Women are supposed to be effortlessly perfect, see.

I kind of wondered about that, too. I do give her a tiny sliver of credit for not blocking all those dissenting comments, but her responses to them cracked me up.

*now off to bat my eyes at the headship and blush with innocence*

Yeah, but strength is a "core" masculine trait and... umm... err..... not a core trait to women!?!?! I guess I will just sit here, blush and bat my eyelashes, hoping it will all somehow make sense. I am not holding out much hope though.

Isn't she? She's being used as a worldly example here, not one of Biblical femininity.

But yikes, this is a WTF moment. Those examples of femininity are certainly .....western world-centric, too aren't they?

Blechh.

I think the picture on the left, at the top of the blog, looks like a call girl waiting for a john.

Ideal femininity, indeed! :roll:

I'm feminine because I'm female. Everything I do is feminine by default. I could get a degree in a STEM field while playing in mud, wearing baggy overalls, and hitting on men, and I would still be feminine. Doing those things won't magically make me sprout a penis.

There's more to life than conforming to someone else's opinion of femininity. If she doesn't like what I do, it's no skin off my nose. And any man that would care that much about is not a man worth having IMO.

If you figure it out, let me know. I've gone and got all confused again, and this is why:

My ex-boyfriend liked it when I batted my eyelashes at him, so when I met my now-husband (headship), I tried it on him. He basically told me that I was trying too hard and to knock it off. Now what am I supposed to do!? :doh:

"Straightforwardness" and "simplicity" are among the masculine traits which should be avoided by Real Women? I mean, the whole list is ridiculous but is she actually saying that women should try to be rambling, obscure, duplicitous, and manipulative?

Okay - she tries to explain it all today in a new post:

jasmine-aboverubies.blogspot.com/2011/07/imitation-of-man-part-2.html

I am still confused - REALLY confused. It's almost like she's saying it's good to be strong or ambitious, unless of course you're really good at it in which case you should back off and let your man lead. We don't have a shovel smiley for digging the hole deeper and deeper, do we?

she should avoid projecting her manly fearlessness even in the unlikely case that it is genuine and not the customary false female bravada that crumbles the moment it is challenged.

Bwahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

In fact, I don't think there are enough :lol: for me to convey how I really feel about this POS.

The female brain obviously cannot comprehend this sophisticated philosophy. We should just stop questioning and submit. [/sarcasm]

Nor is there enough booze in the world to get me drunk enough to stumble through this bullshit.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
