An increasing number of women who sympathize with a few pieces of what used to be normal living prefer to identify themselves in opposition to the current mainstream view of women. In modern American society, feminism works very hard to pretend it’s normal when it never has been and can’t be. Thus, identifying as “anti-feminist” is simply accepting the false claim feminists lay to being the normal ones.
Likewise, the idea of being a “Red Pill” woman who’s learned some sekrit knowledge about how those wacky dames really are is again playing the game by liberal rules.
That’s just silly. Normal women aren’t feminists and the whole blue pill/red pill stuff is also nerdier than most women ever get. The Matrix was not a very good movie and its metaphor of taking red pills and blue pills isn’t that deep either.
I’m interested in normal life, and living it, and helping other people find the tools and support to live it as well. I’m not interested in the idea that respecting your husband is abnormal. It’s not. Having a feminine sphere of activity that is located in the home, not cubicleland isn’t abnormal either.
Feminists have always, in every incarnation historically and currently, not been normal women. So being anti-feminist just means…being a normal lady. And that’s why I use normal so much on this blog. I’m normal, and most people called conservative these days are too, or desire greatly to be. It’s ok. We don’t have to define ourselves in opposition to the deviators from normalcy. That’s their trip and they are free to take it any old time.
I’ll just continue calling my way of life what it is (normal) and normally raise my normal kids and my normal cabbages to the best of my family’s and communities’ capabilities.
