Women might have more dignity if they took themselves less seriously.
Readership: Christian men and women
Western culture is so saturated with female sexuality, that we have grown accustomed to the frivolity. Women are favored by default, so that anytime it is “his word against her word“, the woman is believed and the man is denigrated. Even the church has become so enamored by the pedestalization of wimmin, that we have lost sight of the glory of God. (This is Sharkly’s whole testimony in a nutshell.)
“Now feminists who look like the bottom of a soiled foot will be upset with fashion models because, as they say, they can sleep their way to the top and gain advantage over others due to their fabulous looks. But as I say often, pretty people are people too and we should not discriminate against them.”Overman Warrior: We are not supposed to have elites in America, A ruling class is something to look down on, not to worship (2020 December 8)
Likewise, we should not discriminate in their favor either, that is, not merely on the basis of their attractiveness.
For all the chuffy pop talk about the evils of discrimination, only ugly feminists have the privilege of being able to mention that women are routinely discriminated in favor of their attractiveness. But as Cliffhanger humorously notes in the above quote, this in itself, is a form of reverse discrimination.
Interestingly, the feminists are right about this, despite the blatant bigotry. As the saying goes, “even a broken clock is correct twice a day“. Or as the Bible says,
“As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout,Proverbs 11:22 (NKJV)
So is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.”
Elspeth explained this further.
“Demureness can be manufactured, and it’s entirely possible for a woman to be all of those things [men desire] on the surface, but underneath it all is something that will suck a man’s soul dry.”
Yes, true feminine Charitas is a rarity. Most women who work to look good do it for self-centered motivations, and many of these women are good at faking it. Men are often oblivious to the subtle differences, and fail to discern the trappings of feminine Machiavellianism until after it has been sprung on them. And by that time, it’s already too late.
Yes, these women have real sexual authority, but it is a cheap blunderbuss for women who only flaunt their sex appeal for self-centered reasons.
A Humorous Analogy
To give the reader a fresh taste of what is happening with women who wield their feminine authority without discretion, let me draw the following analogy of a man who bombastically flaunts the social image of his masculine authority.
Consider a local fireman or policeman who comes to the church worship service fully dressed in his occupational attire.
Let’s take the policeman as an example. He comes in with his girlfriend or family and sits towards the front of the sanctuary. Someone in the congregation objects, saying that him wearing his 8-point cap, night stick, and 9 mm during the service is distracting and unnecessary. In response, the policeman gets angry and says he is “offended”. He says he’s sworn to defend the life, liberty and property of everyone there, including the pastor. He talks on at length about his duties and responsibilities to the public. He says that his opponent doesn’t appreciate his sacrifice, and that he is disrespectful to his authority as a policeman.
If the policeman was truly on the job, on a mission to keep law and order at the church and to protect the pious from being martyred (which is gradually becoming the reality), then he would stand in the back corner of the sanctuary and try to draw as little attention to himself as possible.
Now, this illustration of the policeman “worshipping” in full regalia is obviously ridiculous, yet somehow, we don’t feel the same way about young women coming to church, dressed to show off their reproductive wares to the pastor’s son.
Maybe we should.
One of the purposes of female head coverings is so that women do not draw excessive attention to themselves and thereby distract our attention from worshipping in the presence and glory of God.
But some people take women so seriously, that they are slow to understand this.
