Okay. I’ve seen enough. There has been article after article recently on the internet about gender neutrality and the attempt to threaten, even neutralize our feminine sex.
Not only was Bruce (Caitlin) Jenner named “Woman of the Year” for Vanity Fair magazine but now a 17-year-old boy has been named “Cover Girl.” It seems that some men are now claiming: “Men have always been better than women. Now we are even more successful being women than you”. Why haven’t the so-called feminists picked up on this new threat?
On the other side of this coin, there is a systematic attempt to emasculate men, making them as well as us, less gender specific. There are colleges and universities that offer courses on “toxic masculinity.” Those people are trying to “educate” people into believing anything traditionally male is dangerous. They say “The three most destructive words every man receives when he’s a boy is when he’s told to “be a man.” They say masculinity kills men.
There has been, for years now, an attempt to render our gender neutral, from our clothing to motherhood. Now they are attacking men too. The so called “pretty boy” thing that’s going on has men wearing makeup and looking like some weird version of a testosterone ridden woman.
As women, we need to stick up for our sex. It’s unique to us. Men aren’t women and can’t be women. And we aren’t men. There is no such thing as gender neutrality. It’s an attempt to try to change human nature and it won’t, it can’t work. We need to take femininity back, be proud of it and our gender. Motherhood is a woman’s gift alone. We need to be proud of everything that is traditionally female. Everything from heels and dresses to motherhood, tenderness and our distinctive sensitive, compassionate natures is ours. We need to accentuate the differences, not blur them.
