‘Equality In All Things!’: Empowering Misery
One of the most dangerous beliefs to hold is the one that sees Equality in all things as desirable.
People are not equal.
They are individuals with varying levels of talent and abilities.
This is Human Nature.
Encouraging everyone to act as though they are equal in all things is destructive to the Soul because it sets people on a course that can only end in Frustration and Misery.
This is especially true when it comes to the relationship between Men and Women, who are different in so many ways, whose differences, when combined in a monogamous relationship, create something greater than the two parts standing alone.
Stacy McCain understands this very well:
…What feminist ideology tells young women they should do — being sexually “empowered” and expecting this empowerment to lead to “equality” in their relationships — is the exact opposite of what common sense based on an actual knowledge of human nature would advise them to do.
The accumulated wisdom of centuries still holds true. If you want to be loved, be lovable, and if you want to be respected, be respectable. As I tell young women, don’t just “play hard to get,” be hard to get. A girl who acts like trash thereby forfeits the right to complain that guys treat her like trash. One of the worst things feminism has done is to attack the sexual “double standard” by encouraging women to lower their standards, to screw around heedlessly and to view short-term “relationships” as an acceptable substitute for actual commitment.
This strategy of “equality” doesn’t work to women’s advantage. It has never worked and will never work, and any girl who plays that game is a fool….
Will feminists ever wake up and realize that human nature is an immutable reality impervious to ideology? Viewing sexual problems as a quasi-Marxist struggle between two classes — men and women as collective groups — does not necessarily help any individual woman and may arguably make her life more difficult….
Oh, there’s no doubt about whether or not it will make the individual woman’s life more difficult because such views deny Reality and, anytime you deny Reality, you set yourself up for Misery.
Also: the result of women viewing the world in this way also makes men’s lives more difficult Spiritually, because it encourages them to treat women with less respect.
