Matt Walsh: We can’t end ‘rape culture’ if we don’t end hook-up culture

Miss Nevada, as you may have heard, recently made an extraordinarily controversial remark about the sexual assault epidemic on college campuses. Shocking liberal feminists everywhere, she cruelly and maliciously encouraged young women to protect themselves and practice self-defense. The nerve of that woman. I mentioned something on Twitter about all of this absurdity, and I’ve now spent the last day or so fielding helpful emails informing me why self-defense is not an acceptable way … Continue reading Matt Walsh: We can’t end ‘rape culture’ if we don’t end hook-up culture

Be Rude

Portrait of Marie Antoinette in hunting attire (a favorite of her mother), by Joseph Krantzinger (1771), Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

As a young teen, Marie Antoinette came from the cozy family atmosphere of the court of her mother the Empress of Austria to marry the heir to the French throne. Morals were lax at the French court and Marie Antoinette’s higher standards made her plenty of enemies, especially when she snubbed Madame Du Barry, her father-in-law’s mistress. Soon Marie Antoinette became queen, but the gossips hinted that her husband was—in these early years, at least—not interested in her. One rake, the Duc de Biron, thought she might be pining for some male attention and tried to get her alone. Witnesses reported that they heard the queen crying, “Sortez, Monsieur! Get out!” and saw the Duc come running out with a red face.

I like Marie Antoinette, and this story is a great illustration to some of the best advice a young woman will ever hear. I first saw it demonstrated by my mother, then put into words by Nancy Wilson, and more recently re-iterated by Martin Selbrede. It really is critical:

Be rude. Continue reading “Be Rude”

This is an Endorsement for Life

Often times the argument is raised that a young unwed mother is ill equipped for raising a child. Throw in the crippling trauma of being victimized by rape and it seems inevitable most will reach the emotional conclusion that what is necessary is to end the child’s life before it stares face to face with it’s mother reminding her of the crime or becomes a burden on society as an ill equipped young mother will not be able to provide the means to bring the child into adulthood well adjusted and mature.

It is a wonder that any of us can believe that realities are numerous. Circumstances surely are and God accounts for that but there is one reality within which we all live and part of that is we all have been given the opportunity to make something of ourselves. We all have obstacles and trials of varying degrees, and with them the desire to pursue happiness. We were granted life and the liberty to do so by our Creator who rules and reigns over all even those with ill conceived notions that some should not be allowed what God has given all of mankind because they live outside the circumstances many of us are acquainted with. As if it were some alternative Godless reality they live in. Anyone who believes that what is best for society is that the fortunate should live and the unfortunate should not should hear the story of newly crowned Miss Pennsylvania. By the world’s standards she is everything they say is most unlikely.  Continue reading “This is an Endorsement for Life”

Do You Allow For the Rape/Incest Exception? Meet Kristi…

One of the questions Kristi gets asked a lot at the events she speaks at is, “do you have any physical abnormalities since you were conceived in incest”? “This makes me laugh because this is why society tells women to abort children conceived in incest,” Kristi says. “Like there is going to be something wrong with their child, like I should be purple with green … Continue reading Do You Allow For the Rape/Incest Exception?

Raped, impregnated 13-year-old keeps baby

A heart wrenching story of a brave young lady who in the face of death threats, personal trauma, and the disdain of society, showed selfless sacrifice and love beyond her years. The very character of biblical womanhood. I blogged last week about a Ms. Magazine article lamenting how difficult it is for “young women of color” to get abortions. The author used the story of her 14-yr-old cousin to … Continue reading Raped, impregnated 13-year-old keeps baby

The Problems of Women in Combat – From a Female Combat Vet

Ladies Against Feminism doesn’t hold to all of the author’s conclusions e.g. Woman have a place in the military, that pragmatism  is an acceptable alternative to honoring jurisdiction, or that grace isn’t sufficient for men and the temptation to sexual sin, but the author has made many sound observations we’ve shared here before, from a perspective many of us don’t have. Article and documentary contain … Continue reading The Problems of Women in Combat – From a Female Combat Vet

The Abortion Rape Exception: Look Her In The Eye

Teen: I enjoyed listening to your talk on abortion just a few minutes ago. Your points were solid. But I have just one problem. It’s with the rape exception. Can you honestly tell me that you could look a rape victim in the eye and tell her that she could not have an abortion – that she must take the rapist’s baby to term? Editor’s … Continue reading The Abortion Rape Exception: Look Her In The Eye
