I read a comment from a man recently on a blog that asserted, possibly somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that the goal of most women is to never work a day in their lives. All joking aside, while it is no doubt possible to find real life examples of such women, I would assert this is not generally true.
Why might this sometimes seem true to men? I believe it is because they are looking at women who are trying to perform a man’s role. I don’t believe that all forms of paid employment represent “taking on the man’s role,” but there are a few things that I do know to be true:
- Man’s role is to be the final authority and the leader of his household, using both his paid and unpaid labor to provide for himself and his family.
- Woman’s role is taking care of her family through her labors, with guidance from her husband. Her labors may also be paid and/or unpaid.
- However, if the woman engages in paid labor, there are some jobs which are better suited for men and some jobs which are better suited for women.
Sadly, feminists and other modernists only value males, not females, so anything men typically do well is seen as inherently more desirable than anything women typically do well. Therefore, feminists (being terribly misogynistic toward women) have relentlessly pushed for girls to pursue any job field in which men typically excel and women do not – for example, coding, video game development, and a host of other fields.
So what happens is you get a bunch of women in jobs that they are not terribly well-suited for, and – surprise, surprise – they do badly at them and present as lazy and inept. This can give men the mistaken idea that all women are always lazy and inept.
But this is not true. Women can do very well at the work that women do well. Isn’t it rather absurd that we even have to say that? But we live in an age of mass insanity, and thus we must state the blindingly obvious. Feminists, of course, deny that there is any such thing as work that men do well and work that women do well.
Let us consider one assertion I have read, that men invent everything that is worth having. It is true that men are far superior at inventing technology and machinery. Feminists deny that men can be better than women at anything, and thus feminists push women into fields that require technological innovation, and of course they generally aren’t very good at it and proceed to annoy the men around them terribly. And then grumpy men on the internet say women are just no good at innovation, period.
But consider this ingenious woman, who came up with a better way to brood chicks than just stuffing them in a brooder box with a heat lamp 24-7; she created a mama hen substitute out of a heating pad:
If you don’t want to watch the video, you can read an article by a woman who followed the inventoress’ lead and made her own heating pad mama hen. It’s so very clever and so useful! I intend to use it when our spring chicks arrive. This is a perfect example of the type of area where women tend to like to work hard and are successful and innovative – providing for their families by coming up with better ways of raising their own food.
Not every woman wants to raise chickens, of course. But there are distinct areas where women can work hard and excel. Young women shouldn’t listen to idiot feminists who push them into fields they’ll likely hate, nor should young women worry too much about the sharp words from men who are (understandably!) cranky and blowing off steam online. Women can be clever, hard-working, resourceful, and innovative when we stick to job fields that fit with women’s natural strengths and when we focus on tending our homes, gardens, and families.
There is no need for women to chase after job fields dominated by men that we are likely going to be bad at any more than there is a need for us to lust after the role God designed men to fulfill in the family.
Okay. Let’s end on a cheery note then, shall we? My husband – to my absolute shock and our daughters’ great delight – has agreed not only to chicks but also to getting ducks AND GEESE. Did you read that? Read it again: AND GEESE! I get a tingly thrill every time I read it. Did you know that geese can be quite friendly to their owners and are protective of them? In fact, more people are afraid of geese than of dogs, and geese will sound the alarm whenever strangers arrive, so they make good guard animals. They are also excellent at weeding and will be allowed to free range through our little orchard of dwarf and semi-dwarf fruit trees.
We shall get three females and one male. My husband wants Pilgrim geese, which we shall order them from Metzer’s in April, and he has already named them: Uncle Waldo, Amelia, Abigail and Beatrix.
Pilgrim geese are large, very calm, and are decent egg layers. They are also listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC). I will now get the chance to show my own womanly inventiveness by coming up with all kinds of delicious ways to prepare goose eggs!
Isn’t that so exciting?
