To the uninitiated, becoming an overnight internet sensation can be intimidating indeed. Suddenly one is thrust into the Twitter spotlight for his or her requisite fifteen minutes, polarizing the entire news feed and maybe, just maybe, receiving a sound bite of praise or condemnation from some public figure in Hollywood or the District of Columbia. All this over a seemingly inconsequential post of a type seemingly no different than hundreds that have gone before. Exhilarating, wot?
Well…maybe it is if you were handed a device to connect to teh Intrawebz right out of the birth canal. To anyone Gen-X or older, though, such a frenzy would be more akin to inadvertently making head-on contact with a hornet’s nest while on a ride-on lawnmower. And that is precisely what befell the blogger known as The Transformed Wife on July 16th.
On that fateful day, TTW posted a simple blog entry stating what used to pass for the obvious – that men of good character have a preference for women who have not amassed obscene amounts of credit card and student loan debt, who are virgins in their late teens-early 20s, and who aren’t covered in tattoos. That she expected this entry to be non-controversial is obvious: it mostly concerns itself with testimonial quotes from women expressing misgivings of attending college (where these three moral lapses are most likely to take place), with TTW’s affirmations on each point made – in which the dominant descriptive adverb she uses is ‘sadly’. I’ve seen incendiary posts before, and they looked nothing like this. This is the kind of piece that is quickly dashed off within five minutes – consisting as it does mainly of copied-and-pasted passages, and opening and closing statements – right before it’s time to feed the kids or the washing machine’s about to shut off. No big deal.
Except that’s not how the feminist anthill saw things.
When TTW re-posted her article to her Facebook page, suddenly every entitled little princess with an opinion and access to Daddy’s iPhone was right there to squawk in extremely reasonable fashion about how they are fantastic people in spite of their debt, ink, and harlotry….or splitting hairs by expounding on how they have the credit rating of Namibia and more ink than a giant squid, but they ARE virgins (yeah, sure!) and doesn’t that just topple your entire hateful hypothesis, Ms. Smarty-Pants?…or how they personally are debt-free virgins without tattoos yet their totally BFF who works at the animal shelter is none of the above, but she’s totally awesome, and thus TTW is a Cro-Magnon who doesn’t realize it’s the current year….getting the gist of things yet? If not, perhaps some representative screenshots might help:
This meeting of the mindless continues on for sixty thousand responses…and was active for weeks! Just getting the thread to open is a challenge anymore, even on the newest and cleanest electronic devices. It certainly is not limited merely to female feminists, either. Many a male meathead saw fit to chime in with his two cents’ worth as to the sheer ludicrousness of the notion that feminine modesty is desirable – especially, as you might have suspected, over the ‘virginity’ part. Well, if these Lotharios want to go through their youth with itchy and pestilent unmentionables, I suppose that’s their prerogative. I guess they revel in their liberty to feel like they’re passing a branding iron whenever they have to relieve themselves. And that’s if they’re lucky.
This, of course, is the stuff hot trending memes are made of, and the whole seedy spectacle has become exactly that, as the introductory picture for this article makes clear. Alas, a few supportive cells of resistance to the contrary, the predominant theme of this meme is one of derision. We ought not to be surprised at this, but we ought still to mourn.
So a bunch of harridans spazzed out. So what? Isn’t that just what comes naturally to them? Or is this symptomatic of something profoundly more wretched?
One of the more striking features of this whole imbroglio is TTW’s subsequent reaction to it all, in which she expresses honest bafflement over how such a harmless post could trigger the equivalent of the explosion of Krakatoa. Here we behold a generational gap more profound than the vaunted chasm that defined the 1960s. TTW is not a Millennial, so it is understandable that she might not grasp just how thoroughly she violated the only commandment that matters to this age group: ‘thou shalt respect my personal choice’. Or, to put it even more broadly: ‘thou shalt not place any limitations on the panorama of personal choices open to me’. Having rejected Eternal Truth as a basis for life, Millennials, especially in their female variant, seem perfectly content to settle for Eternal Options instead. After all, this is the demographic that has made the depressingly puerile country singer Kacey Musgraves a millionaire, responding so favorably to her licentious anthems Follow Your Arrow and Mind Your Own Biscuits that they clog her Twitter feed with encomiums about how she is the Yin to their Yang and other such important theological musings. Who cares if the vast majority of SJW women will never be able to embark upon a Thelma and Louise spree of mass murder and self-empowerment because it turns out student loans and pictographs of unicorns on the epidermis kinda put a kink in that ultimate symbol of patriarchy, the budget? Why are you so hell-bent on trying to ensnare a shooting star, misogynist???
And you’ll never in a million years guess who some of the most avid defenders of this hedonistic nihilism are. That’s right….antinomian Churchtards who love the sinner and sorta kinda have reservations about the sin! How tiring it is to be unequally yoked to these sycophants with their idiotic presumptions about the inherent goodness of man. They come in both ‘nice’ feminist varieties:
As well as in soy-boy flavor – which is even more repulsive as one strongly suspects they are more concerned with presenting themselves as potential non-threatening boyfriends to the multitude of hot chicks present than to giving God His due glory:
‘A huge disservice to the name of the church and the kingdom in general’??? So I guess God wasn’t very clear when He bluntly prohibited all strange cuttings and marks in the flesh and will wink at such provided they give voice to an otherwise repressed woman? That must have been a footnote to Leviticus 19:28 that got waylaid in translation along about the time of the Septuagint. And Jesus chases after women with a jaded past? What is He – Harry Paget Flashman? Not to mention such universalism makes an utter mockery of Paul’s conjecture of grace in Romans 6:1-2 – ‘What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?’ In trying to be all things to all people, these opportunists have succeeded in being nothing to nobody. Which is only fitting. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…
As with so many other clarion calls for cultural death masquerading as vibrant affirmations of liberty, the foundation from which this shofar was blown is inherently Jewish. For there is nothing said here that would not be entirely congenital to the cult of Lilith – that Kabbalist order of devotion to vulvae and demons that has formed the basis of so much of the feminist movement for the past half century. What better source to extol this healthy expression of vestal diabolism than the Huffington Post? And sho nuff, they saw fit to publish just such a panegyric, as penned by a vile woman who, one prays, has access to neither butcher knives nor matches and gasoline:
Each of us has a bit of Lilith in us. A bit of a voice, when silence is expected of us. A bit of a desire for freedom from the conventional fences others erect around us. A bit of a need for equality, when we’ve been taught, as early as when we were children or young girls, that we are not quite equal. Yes, we all possess a bit of Lilith’s unacceptable rebelliousness in us, which believe me, requires more than a bit of courage.
My Lilith revealed herself when I immigrated to America and decided to go back to school as a married woman and a mother of young kids, when I became a writer and began creating strong willed female characters with big dreams and the courage to realize these dreams, despite the many obstacles they encountered on their way.
In order to succeed, each and every one of us must have a bit of Lilith in us. Sometimes a bit and sometimes more than just a bit.
…it is a different day and time now. Why not give Lilith her rightful place in history as the first feminist, who claimed herself equal to Adam and refused to become subservient, who saw Adam’s relationship with Eve as an unacceptable betrayal. In short, she demanded to lie next to him and not under him, be his partner, rather than simply his helper. She demanded to be considered a woman in her own right.
Ironic indeed that in this piece author Dora (((Levy Mossanen))) cheers the wise mystical men who concocted this sacrilegious fantasy as a crutch for her to engage in her symphony of whoredoms centuries later. But then, what feminists lack in brains or morality they amply make up for in biting the hand that feeds them. The witches’ coven who saw fit to descend en masse against TTW and engage in the online equivalent of flashing their cleavage in the face of a woman who is far wiser and better than they will ever be proves this adage conclusively.
As the meme war thus generated shows no signs of abating any time soon, I can’t think of a more apt conclusion than to share one such meme a friend of mine created to express his disgust over the whole affair – brilliantly, I might add:
