    other than to say “wow” … I’m speechless. As I was reading it, I could feel a sneer form on my upper lip. I really try hard to have a gracious heart because I was a feminist — some days it’s just hard.

    It is interesting to me particularly in the wake of current events. Not just the sex harassment stuff, but in general. Where is this all supposed to end? What does the world look like to them if they get their way? What kind of men are we left with?

    I fear that too many really decent people with decent minds and hearts don’t take seriously enough where this is all headed and what it means for their kids, for all our kids. They think it’s just a few kooks at the top of the socioeconomic/political/media heap. But these people affect what happens on the ground over time. It’s classic trickle down.

    This cannot end well.

    “This cannot end well.”

    You’re correct. According to the The Book … it will not end well. Not to sound too “doomsday-ee” or like I belong in the “tinfoil brigade” … but there will be an end; and it will happen in *someone’s* generation (era) …

    Doesn’t it say that it’s going to get REAL bad? I don’t think we wake up one day and BOOM, it’s bad and no one saw it coming. It is coming …. and we see it. You know it Els, the world wasn’t meant to be saved.

    It’s kind of fitting that it would be feminism that leads the way in the world eating itself; it was a woman (generally speaking) that started us down the path of losing our way in the first place.

    Oh, Robyn. You’re going to this, from former NBC anchor Ann Curry:

    Curry has an inspirational message for women and a hopeful outlook for the future. “There’s a real sense I have now, and I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this, but for the first time in my life I actually have real hope that we will see a day when women will finally be unbound and unleashed upon the world,” she told People

    From here:

    In better news, at least I know there are 5 young women who see the madness for what it is. Firstly, it was our 11-year-old who thought I should take a picture of the “silly” book -she saw it first and brought it to me- so that she could show it to her sisters.

    Later, our 23-year-old was talking about it with her, and as 11-year-old was telling her what was actually IN the book (we didn’t bring it home), her older sister said to her, “Well, that’s basically what feminism is. The belief that women should be able to do whatever we want with not regard for what anyone else thinks or how it would affect anyone else. Basically, women should be able to act like overgrown babies.”

    Aaahh…my job is done.

    j/k

    ““Well, that’s basically what feminism is. The belief that women should be able to do whatever we want with not regard for what anyone else thinks or how it would affect anyone else. Basically, women should be able to act like overgrown babies.”

    -That’s exactly what our older daughter said too! Truly, feminists remind me of that other ‘being’ that thinks he should be able to do whatever he wants to anyone he wants for whatever reason he wants … as long as he gets his way in the end … even above God.

    “…but for the first time in my life I actually have real hope that we will see a day when women will finally be unbound and unleashed upon the world,”

    -the UNLEASHING of complete self-centeredness and selfishness … honestly, I do not know a better way to describe them. The children of their father act just like him (John 8:44).

    “… willingly.” is an interesting word.

    Seriously, everytime something new happens, I think, “it can’t get much dumber!” But you know what? It always does. I’m guessing this is a little closer to what Paul means when he calls the world a “squalid” place.

    Love that common sense from 13YO!

    Unfortunately, just going along with whatever you feel like doing with no guilt or shame or thought for others* is the feminist definition of strong.

    (*except maybe your kids and only in narrow ways then like feed ’em and keep ’em reasonably physically healthy and stuff)

    Update:

    This book was just on a book stand on the “featured” table in the kids’ section of a local library here.

    Le sigh…to quote a friend of mine.
