Yep, that about sums it up for you, Conservative women love their men and children.
I have always loved the company of men, I was a Daddy's girl, very close to my only brother and learned to shoot a rifle at age eight by my favorite former Marine, Uncle Jerry. I always tried to understand their view, and in some ways men were more simple to interact with.
Not all in my family felt the same about the men in my family, nor "men" in general. Their marriages were never lasting and they thought all men were jerks. I agree, some men are jerks, but not all men are jerks.
As a Conservative woman I am married to one man with children. The picture included in this article is of my boyfriend while I lived in California. I left California to be with family in Florida and met my present husband, he wouldn't like his picture in an article on Newsvine, soooo I knew Bob wouldn't care. I did not return to California or Bob, I married my husband of today, Mr. Nelson. I am originally from Philly, New Jersey and buffed men were a mainstay. Bob, although from Ohio had been a pro wrestler, he reminded me of Jersey guys.
This article is really not about my old boyfriend, it is about those Conservative women who marry once, stay with one man, and love their man and children. I have seen many Conservative women who have been ridiculed in the Press for their choices, to be a wife/mother, like they are some sort of moron, I detest that assertion/characterization; in fact I assert it is exactly the reverse, women who appreciate men and children are more fulfilled and their life is full.
I have worked while being married, I do not attest that this work defined my worth. I always tried to do an exceptionable job wherever I worked, I did my best as that is what my Father always impressed upon us seven kids, his motto "If you're going to do a job, do it right or not at all!" Yep, and my Father meant it, he never settled for half way. Captain Bill is what he was called while we lived in Florida, insisted we did the Right/Best we had to offer. This meant sacrifice, dilligence, and full commitment when it wasn't always pleasurable; it was a matter of character/integrity. My Dad believed if your name was on it, you own it, he did not accept excuses like "I don't feel well"...you did your job and did it well. I found that my Dad always did his job, and he did it well. I understood him, I loved him. I am not as strict with my children, I sometimes think too much about things, weigh things and try to understand the reason's why? Nonetheless I loved and respected my Dad for who he was and how he thought, he had purpose and integrity, everyone who knew him thought so too. My brother was big and goodlooking and he knew it, but everyone who knew us would never harm me, because I was my brother's sister, my brother was always my protector.
I am now married, I chose my husband over Bob, he is a good man/father. I am not perfect, in fact I am very opinionated as most of you Newsviners know, this apple did not fall far from the tree as my Mom was extremely opinionated and outspoken. My Father loved her for it. I do not pretent that the men in my family were Saints, on the contrary their are members of my family who do not enjoy the same opinion, they only see their shortcomings. Women and men are very different, I personally think they compliment each other, it is good.
I had been interested in the Feminist movement, but, the more I knew of the women individually and their anti men treatise, the more I could not sign on. I do not believe that I am less than a man, I do not believe a man is more important than a woman or should be paid more. I do agree that men and women are different, and each have their special gifts, that are for the benefit of others. I do seem to dwell on things, my husband and Dad does not. It is a stark difference of the men in my life, they do not analyze like I, they take things for what they are. This is different, not to be judged as bad or good, and there may be men who analyze more than my men.
I say that a woman can be a Feminist/Suffragette like Susan B. Anthony and should be accepted/respected for her view and choices. Susan B. Anthony was Pro Life, the original purpose of those who wanted to vote was to have a voice for their children and family in their government. Susan B. Anthony's quote on children + Abortion...
""Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh, thrice guilty is he who drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!"
~ Susan B. Anthony, The Revolution, July 8, 1869 ~
"Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them."
~ Susan B. Anthony, quoted in The American Feminist, Spring 1998 ~
End of Susan B. Anthony quotes
There are those in the present Feminist movement who espouse that women like Susan B. Anthony were all about women in power, it was not, Susan wanted the Vote for the well being of her family. For Feminists to take these women's cause and make it to be something other than their intent is egregious. It was not empowerment these courageous women fought for, it was sacrificing for their families welfare.
The politics of today, the Feminist movement has pushed things that the woman who gave us the Right to Vote did not embrace, the ill will of those who act more like a nasty man than a woman, no feminism there. The Feminists do not embrace the Conservative women,those who do consent to their Pro Abortion stand, the majority of Feminists are silenced when Conservative women are trashed,not defended. My Mom was brilliant, she had 7 children and was a stay at home Mom for years until she got involved in politics.
A strong woman, who loves her family is investing in our country, the family is the material and future for the US. The statistics are that 80% of men in jail are from a single mother home, men are important to the children, VERY important. I would not know what I would be/think without my Father's influence, I do think I would not be all that I am today. Young male/female children do need a man/father. Is the Feminist movement proposing a career and Abortion to be free of Marriage/children a positive good for US? I think not.
Conservative women who love and stay married to one man with children/family are not less important to those who work outside of their home or who want a career. I have done both, I am just as affirmed in my life choices no matter what I choose.
I have worked with those women who had set their life on Career alone, I saw them when they were older and their Mom/Dad were gone and they became ill. Yes, they had no support, their siblings were also sick and they had no one. This is a sad and lonely ending, for both men and women who think career is the total of their life. I've seen some who had no one to bury them, they wanted a career.
I think to sell the Feminist ideas of those who are in the movement is not true to those like Susan B. Anthony. The Feminists who I've followed showed anger and disgust at anything that had children/marriage and the love of men. I've seen the end of those who chose their idol, Career, they die alone with their cats.
