Dear Modern Feminists, STOP Demonizing Men...

Dear Modern Feminists, STOP Demonizing Men...

A letter from a concerned mother of a baby boy..

Let me start this article off by stating, I am not against feminism.

I am against modern feminism.

This giant temper tantrum mislabeled as a 'fight for women's rights'.

No, this is not another 'Why We Don't Need Feminism' article.. We do need feminism.

Without true feminists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony, we wouldn't be where we are today. (As you can see in their pictures, they weren't running around in giant genitalia costumes screaming things like 'stay out of my uterus!')..

They fought with class; which is a seemingly lost value among modern feminists... Are there cases in the world of women being mistreated compared to their male counterparts? Yes. I'm not here to say there isn't...

I am h ere to say that there are also cases everywhere of men being mistreated compared to their female counterparts..

And coming from the mother of a baby boy;

STOP demonizing all men. (Beware, the following link includes the video where a modern feminist calls for the killing of all male babies/men...)

My son doesn't deserve to be demonized for being a male. He isn't even old enough to speak! The day I found out I was having a boy I had made a promise to myself that I would raise a respectable young man. A true gentleman. Who would treat EVERYONE with respect. Not just women. Men and women of all races, sexuality, religion, etc.

But modern feminists don't care if my son grows up to be a gentleman, they just care that he's a man and for being a man they think he is below them. And they're teaching young women that it will be acceptable to treat him that way in school, work, etc.

This is being written on behalf of a mother who is genuinely scared for the future of society. Even though his generation is projected to by the most conservative in years... I'm still scared for the kinds of behavior becoming more and more acceptable by modern feminists hosting 'Women's Marches' (for what?) and random protests.

What will my son see out on the streets when he's old enough to start asking questions? Just the other day when I left school, right across the street was about a 20 person protest that consisted of a handful of women wearing their pink genitalia hats. One of the women was running along the side walk in a ripped up plaid t-shirt that read, 'Pussy Power'. (Don't worry, she was screaming it, too.)

What am I going to say when my son asks me; "Mom, what's pussy power?"

A two, three, ten, twelve, fourteen year old shouldn't have to grow accustomed to seeing woman both old and young parading around the streets dawning vagina costumes and wearing shirts that say 'Pussy Power'.

If the only thing that empowers you is your pussy? I feel sorry for you. You are so much more than your female reproductive parts. Your female reproductive parts aren't what bring you 'power'.

What brings you power? Is how you treat other women. Women like me, who may not agree with your modern take on feminism. Republican, pro-life women. Believe me, I've been on the receiving end of some nasty comments solely for my religious and political beliefs.. Along with the fact that I don't associate with modern feminism.

What brings you power? Is how you treat MEN. These young men, my baby boy, they are learning what's acceptable behavior not only by me and mothers everywhere; but by what you make acceptable as a society.

As of now? You are making it acceptable for men to see you only for your 'pussy'.

Not for your heart, not for your soul, not for your mind..

For your pussy. By dawning your pink hat, by screaming 'stay out of my uterus' you are teaching my son that it's okay to see women as only their female reproductive parts. Why wouldn't he? That's all you guys seem to see in yourselves!

Keep up your fight, do whatever it is that helps you sleep at night. But please do it without teaching young women that it's okay to talk down to or disrespect young men. Do it without teaching young women that it's okay to make videos/tweets/posts calling for the killing of all men, no matter their age...

Please find your inner Elizabeth Cady Stanton and fight your fight without your disgusting genitalia costumes.

Stop teaching young men everywhere that the only thing to a woman is her vagina.

And for the love of God, stop teaching young women to only value their vaginas.

Can we make a promise to one another to stop fighting to put 'women above men' or 'men above women' but go back to the fight of being EQUAL?!

We all matter and we are all so much more than our reproductive organs. While men and women have their obvious differences, we are equal in the sense that we're all playing for the same team..

We're all trying to raise respectable individuals that will treat everyone no matter their gender, race, sexuality or religion with RESPECT.

That includes you, modern feminists.

Treat men with the respect that you want them to treat you with. You are not entitled to any special treatment because of your gender;

Just like my son isn't entitled to your mistreatment because of his.

He Changed Everything.

My soul is richer & my heart is fuller 

Sept 2013 I found myself writing to an evangelist Jennifer Beckham looking for more, looking for answers cause at the time I was in a dark place, and stuck no matter what I did. She wrote back! I cried as I read her respond. She sent me scriptures of who god is and what he wants for us. God says we are more than conquers and endurance develops strength and character. She encouraged me that I was on the right track. Not to give up and she would be praying for me. I saw Jennifer Beckham at a conference that year. I don't remember what she specifically talked about but I remember the feeling. The feeling of wanting to burst out crying, I could feel my eyes being filled with tears, and my heart racing but I wouldn't let out the tears. My pride was too big. I wanted to be strong so I did my best to hold it all in, and I did. At this conference they offered the audience who wanted to go up for prayer and dedicate their life to Jesus Christ. Surprisingly I went up, but I went up with other people that were seeking out salvation. I wasn’t sure if I was going up to support the other people or if it was truly for me. I was confused, even though I said the prayer. I became more confused as the days went on and I wasn't feeling a difference in my life. Nothing was changing. I started reading the bible and many books, listening to sermons, and surrounding myself with positive people. I gave my life to Jesus, but I didn't feel like I was set FREE! I continued feeling empty, lost, broken, guilty, and hurt from the past. There were so many days where I just wanted to give up. Almost felt pointless to fight for my life. At this point in my life I didn't know God very much, but I had just a little bit of faith. My faith was a big as a mustard seed and God took care of the rest. Day by day, year by year I started noticing my life changing. I noticed I was changing. I started feeling happy with who I was and where I was in life. I no longer questioned God about the things that happened to me. In my heart I was ok with the wounds, the hardships, and trials from the past because I now understood those wounds and trials. I realized I was SET FREE! not perfect but set free. I started understanding who I was as a child of our heavenly father. Now it’s Jan 2018 and I’m in awe of who I am and where I am in life, all because of Jesus. His so faithful! I think of the favor, the grace, his mercy, his love, his joy and blessing that he gives me even when I’m undeserving of it, it’s overwhelming. He has never left me nor forsake me. I can say Jesus you changed everything and my heart so forever thankful. 

Today, I encourage you like Jennifer Beckham encouraged me. Keep going and don't give up. No matter what your past looks like believe in your heart that you were created for greatness. Don't let your past determine your future, be the change you want in your life. You have it in you. There is so much more to life, don't miss out on it. It's time to take back your happiness, love, joy, freedom and so much more. It's time to take back EVERYTHING the enemy has taken from you. God has made you an overcomer. I speak it right now, that you will be victorious in 2018 and the years to come. Remember, God loves you! 

Psalm 136:26 (AMP) O give thanks to the God of heaven, for his mercy and loving-kindness endures forever!

Oprah Winfrey Running For President?

Golden Globe speech sparking some ideas.

As of Sunday, January 7, 2018, Oprah Winfrey made a few remarks during her Golden Globe speech, hinting to her possibly running for president in 2020. Later, two of her friends, who wish to remain anonymous confirm this speculation. One of the friends said that this idea has been looming for months now but that Winfrey did not come to a conscience yet.

The main point of Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globes was the #MeToo movement. She also made a statement of, "A new day is on the horizon", which many liberal celebrities and viewers heard as a possible campaign cry.

At the moment, there is no serious talk right now about her running for president, but some of her fans have voiced their opinions through Twitter and Facebook after she had her speech. Along with her fans, her long time partner, Stedman Graham also mentioned that her running for president was a possibility

However what Winfrey does not have is political experience. When she needs political advice she looks to the Obamas and she fully endorsed Hillary Clinton. We may have our next Democratic candidate for the 2020 election. Although the race for president does not start until after the 2018 midterms, many candidates are getting a head start. Maybe this is her making her first move. What do you think? Will America choose another TV star as our president?
