A while back some men’s blogs started to push back against so called red pill female bloggers. Parallel and most certainly linked to that push back, some men’s blogs also began tp limit female participation. Policy at blogs.like this one and this one and even THIS one ranged from strict female comment rule enforcement to outright forbidding women from participating. Doubtful I was alone when I wondered why this hadn’t started sooner.
Not that more is needed, but there is an illustrative affirmation in the linked post for those bloggers who chose to escalate comment enforcement. It’s something I already knew without really knowing that I knew it.
The title offers foreshadowing:
The Gentle and Quiet Spirit-Not a Personality Trait
A common proclamation that could be more succinctly and more honestly written as “I’m sassy!”.
By now we know they are all sassy. They are all strong and independent.In case we forget, women have disproved the Law of Conservation of Mass. That law is often stated as “matter cannot be created or destroyed”. Women create entire multi-layered realities so that what they feel is always true, their beliefs, which are often created on the spot as needed, are not challenged in the created reality. And, well, the new reality actually has mass, therefore they are operating outside physical and thermodynamic boundaries.
She asks some edgy tough questions.
How could God put women in a box like that, expecting them to behave outside their personalities? Why does God command this to women but not to men?
Her husband must not be serving her to Matt Chandler’s standards or she’d be as content as the Soma takers in Brave New World.
So, she is sassy. And oh yea, uniquely sassy. And did I say talented and driven? Where in the bible would she go to up the matriarchal moxy? To the chase…..Proverbs 31, Yo.
Proverbs 31 is the primary passage talking about a woman’s internal beauty. Verse 25 says, “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” So this woman clothes herself with strength and dignity
Watching the cipher being (rererere)-written is like seeing an oasis of high reasoning.It is
*** Super Cool Stuff…like a Champagne Supenova***
I was cut from the same cloth as Martha. I know how to get stuff done.
Never imagined a woman claiming such a thing. Well, any woman except every single Christian woman who feels she has to subtly write a resume that passive aggressively cements her into stealth egalitarianism and don’t you forget it buster.
Finally, here is what congealed the idea for the title of this post. In what is meant to seem like a moment of self reflection she says:
My spirit is LOUD. I’m always talking, always trying to figure things out and plan for all contingencies. I’m frustrated when things don’t go my way. I wish I could be in charge of everything and everyone because then I could make things (and people) better
There is truth there. It would make powerful confession and repentance. The context is meant to offer a hue of confession and a tenor or repentance. Perhaps they are there, I cannot know. But the fact is even those serve the narrative.
I recall a learned man’s interpretation of some women’s survey results that appeared in Christianity Today some time back. The results were impossible. There were things that ought to be mutually exclusive. Contradictory assertions that women made in statistic ally significant numbers. The analyst explained it as women wanting to see themselves being exactly the way they want others to view them. they can choose to see that even if two individual instances blatantly contradict one another.
It boils down to this. She lambastes the characteristics that she wants her Christian self to be seen as lambasting. She prominently states her relevant weakness and struggles are in the context of how the bible describes a woman’s right demeanor. In this way she gets credit for sassy (boasting), and credit for calling herself out for sassy (eschewing).
