Homespun truth from a bible believing

Kenyan woman, Mary, age 26

(henrymakow.com)


I would like to tell you of some of my conclusions I have come to from observations and experiences at employment, for males and females. God created us differently and to do otherwise is to upset nature.


First of all, there can be no equal treatment at the workplace for males and females in terms of pay. How can you compare a female ( single - has fewer bills, married - has husband to also support her) to a male who has to provide for himself and his family?


Second, women should not be given managerial positions in mixed gender employment settings.  A  woman commanding a man is against nature and God. The man can't talk back to the boss because he has a family to feed. He feels anger and that is directed against other females in general. I think that's something very wrong! Yet society is encouraging this to be the norm and calls it progress.


Also the managerial positions causes women to lose their femininity. By natural law, a man is not supposed/ cannot take orders from a woman. So men, by nature, do not obey women. This causes women to change their nature and become rude and hostile (also dressing like men) to gain compliance.


Also women suffer from mood swings  (I myself included.) One day we are happy, the next day sad. It's difficult for anyone (men or other women) to endure this instability. Also women are naturally hostile to other women because they are viewed as competitors (to getting male attention). It's no secret that women oppress other women in the workplace.


Third, I think employment causes women to be immoral and evil. Most office gossip is caused and spread by women designed to hurt or get even with someone. Also to gain more position, a woman can use their sexuality and charm to lure men.  


Fourth, employment puts women in a vulnerable situation to be exploited and used. Women were designed to be in familiar territory at all times, that is, at home with family, before marriage, and then with husband his family which grows with her.


You can imagine a vulnerable woman being in an unstable, ever changing workplace environment with total strangers. She gets frustrated trying to fit in. The emotional bonds she forms with people can be easily broken when they get promoted or move away.


By trying to fit in, she buys stuff from silly magazines (which drains her earnings). The fashion industry really exploits women by trying to make them fit in with clothing and make up. I know of a woman who is in debt because of her working clothes. She says she has to dress to impress her work mates, boss and customers. What do you think that does to a woman's self esteem?


Also her authority  figure - boss (not father or husband) exploits her and in some cases abuses her. She is always being threatened by the boss of being fired. Bosses, male or female, around the world are afraid of threatening male employees but not the female. Once fired, who protects the female? She always needs a male authority to survive (prostitution?) no family should let their daughters move out of the home to go to work. It makes them double vulnerable.    


Fifth, employment robs women of their rightful authority. Long time ago, women had two authorities to take care and provide for her, one, her family before marriage, second, her husband. Both of these authorities took care of her.  But these days, women have the illusion that their career (authority)  will 'take care' of them.


This is why they are so many divorces.  Women don't understand that employment is not an authority and can't take care of them. There is no 'corporate family'. Once you are done, you are thrown out in the street.


Sixth and lastly, employment causes women to suppress and lose God's and nature's gift. I had a friend who had met someone wonderful and she really wanted to have a child. She was afraid to do so because her employer would fire her. She was getting older and I was afraid that she would miss an opportunity to have kids.


I advised her to have the kid as, the pay she was getting was not that good and it was a dead end job, and, the guy could leave her if he really wanted to start a family.


I don't know what her decision will be. I just gave the above illustration to show how employment can rob women of the gift of family and a loving partner, which women are entitled to.


I also see that mothers everywhere in the world being pushed to go back to the workplace which limits their ties to their child. This children grow up without a proper guide leaving them open to evil people to do all sort of evil things to them.


 Also employment robs women of their youth and energy  - working at some cubicle. The female beauty and charm is directed to corporate profits, the boss and customers instead of a loving husband who will cherish her. The sadness of all this is that they get nothing in the end. To follow the employment way, you will end up alone especially in old age.

Comments for "Six Reasons Working Women Aren't Equal"

Henk said (March 5, 2013):

Dear ‘Young Kenya Woman’,

What a wonderful refreshing article. You are a beautiful young woman Mary who deserves a fine husband. I pray you will hold fast to these 6 truths and be a role model for many.

Well done and Thank you.


Jesper said (March 5, 2013):

Two quotes by Chesterton relevant to the question of women pursuing self-realization in the workplace:

"Feminism is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands."

"People talk of the pathos and failure of plain women; but it is a more terrible thing that a beautiful woman may succeed in everything but womanhood."


Kristine said (March 5, 2013):

Mary gets off on the wrong foot at point one: single women do not necessarily have "fewer" bills - men with jobs are not necessarily married!

Also, in some countries, such as Germany for example, singles are charged higher taxes and do not get the tax breaks of married people - male or female.


James said (March 5, 2013):

In my opinion, anyone having children nowadays is criminally insane and hopelessly irresponsible. Why in the name of God would anyone want to bring children into this present hideous world? To me, the idea is absolutely inconceivable. If case you haven't figured it out yet folks, the 1950s are gone forever. And if you consider yourself to be a "Christian," you had better heed the warning Christ gives in Matthew 24:19: "How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for mothers nursing their babies in those days." "Those days" are immediately ahead of us.


Debra said (March 5, 2013):

I'm a woman and I agree with the author of the article on ALL points.

I worked as a nurse for a number of years, and as most people know, professional nursing work is primarily women. Women are not pleasant
to work with, in general. Besides being moody or downright mean, they are able to influence others through gossip or under-the-breath chatter and comments remarkably well. They hate other women who they perceive as prettier, happier, or "thinner". That is how petty women are. It is terrible. Many are skilled at acting sweet and nice, then when you turn away say terrible things. Naturally, women are incredibly selfish and are self centered and shallow. I do not have a
lot of good things to say even though I myself am one. I strive to be different.

In general, the thing about women is they want something you have and are trying to take it; instead of doing what it takes to get it, which
is how men do things; the women are different. For some reason (and unknown to me), they think they are special simply because they are women!

Thank-you Mary. Yes to all and then some:-

"there can be no equal treatment at the workplace for males and females in terms of pay"

"women should not be given managerial positions in mixed gender employment settings"

"Most office gossip is caused and spread by women designed to hurt or get even with someone."

"It's difficult for anyone (men or other women) to endure this instability."

"employment puts women in a vulnerable situation to be exploited and used."

"employment causes women to suppress and lose God's and nature's gift"


Brian said (March 5, 2013):

The Bible says, after the fall in the Garden of Eden, Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. In Genesis 3: 17-19 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. (KJV)

So women are cursed with child birth and rearing children and man with working and all the amenities attached like providing for and protecting the family.

Why do women want to take on a second curse?


John said (March 5, 2013):

Mary's whole essay resonates. How is this economic situation we have now superior to what used to be? When I went to college from 1982 to 1986, it was still largely a single income economy. Most friends' I grew up with had mothers who were stay at home moms, had both parents still living in the home (there were very few divorces), had one or more brothers and sisters, and a father who was the worker and breadwinner for the family.

A couple years after graduating from college and getting a degree-field related job, it became apparent economically that it had changed to a dual income economy. A couple years more looking for a wife, it became apparent most women only wanted one child and didn't plan to stay home and take care of that child. One I knew seemed to speak of a potential husband and a child as accessories to a career life.

Today a married woman essentially has to work outside the home. Her time is spent working, to get a paycheck and pay mortgage interest, the school loan payment, income tax, childcare, and a car payment. A single woman, or man, is lucky to subsist on one income, extremely lucky to get by with any savings ability.

Instead of mom raising the kids, it is now a child care worker raising several children, who are usually only-child kids. Baby goes in at 6 weeks or 6 months and is raised by a succession of day care workers. Mothers Day should be re-named Mothers and Daycare Providers Day, if we are going to be honest. Every time a small child's daycare provider quits, it's like the child's mom has abandoned her. Indeed there is now a name for the damage, "Detachment Syndrome".

This clearly goes against the plan of God's creation, for men, women, children, and families. And it lends great credence to what Mary says about women in the workplace, period. We are not used to hearing anyone say what she has, but the essential fact of what has happened to the home and family lend great credence to everything else she said.

When I was in junior high school, I'm sure 'mother and homemaker' was not on one of the career index cards in the career exploration kit we went through in social studies class. And back then, it was also being drilled into girl's heads by television programs like All In The Family, Mary Tyler Moore, and Charlie's Angels, that no girl wanted to be Edith 'da dingbat' housewife, and every girl wanted an exciting career. "Alice" got them used to divorce. "Threes Company" encouraged them to live together. "Who's The Boss" added to the cognitive dissonance.

Two other things Mary wrote that highly resonate with me are yes, women cannot sail on an even emotional keel, due to the up and down portions of a 28 day cycle. If you think about it, the term "going postal" did not originate until the time women began to get into supervisory positions at the post office. And, yes, in a work environment, men get along better with men, than women do with women, and most women would readily agree. It is also very true, it has to be considering how crude many men are, that women suffer a degradation of morality, even if they are moral to begin with, in the workplace.


Rino said (March 5, 2013):

Well Done Mary! A very insightful look into the world of today’s socially engineered female, which by the way is an un-natural female.

It is clear that this author has not been indoctrinated to think and act like today’s me, me, mine, mine model of female, also referred to as the ‘politically correct model’.

Feminism is but a tool. It does not protect women but allows her to be used as a pawn. Now she has to ‘earn the right to be’ in order to carry a Title on her forehead.

Feminism teaches females that they are ‘NO-THING’ unless they earn the right to be (i.e. have a career with Title).

I applaud Mary for speaking the truth and quote the following, ‘Tradition isn’t to be feared but celebrated, and the shedding of all things old doesn’t mean the new is better just because its called progress’.


Joe said (March 4, 2013):

Thanks for the wonderful article. I can recall several times having high blood pressure when my previous boss was female. She had no idea what to do in her position but thanks to political correctness, she is still in her job. If women are already 60% of the workforce, how can they still keep getting minority protection?

I can also see that big corporations support this insanity when they are looking to cut costs anywhere they can find (including firing men who have to support their family) but will allow women employees to be away from their job for a year with pay during pregnancy and maternity leave. If men started taking paternity leave I think there would be no equal treatment.

The new world order dislikes all races and lots of minorities are waking up to this fact. The Illuminati want all races to mix up to create a single race which is a false diversity. Only God supports true diversity by keeping the races separate. If we marry our own kind and have many children and live in a neighborhood with our own race where we know each other, crime rates would drop, community spirit would come alive and we can defeat this Illuminati plan.

I am an LMP, a Licensed Massage Practitioner. From the age of 17-33, I was on my own, unmarried. I got by on a series of odd jobs until I finally went to be trained in massage therapy. Now how am I supposed to get by in this world without working?

I am married now with a son & a baby on the way. When we met, my husband worked grocery. He left that (because he could depend on my income) to be trained in homebuilding. He did that for several years, until the 2008 housing collapse, when he was laid off.

What would we have done had we not been able to depend on my massage therapy career? Well, we'd be destitute.

This isn't about taking away my husband's masculinity. This world is unaffordable and to live in it together- two people must work! In these times,women are expected to leave the family home and work at a young age.What woman is really going to depend on a man to provide for her-as if he even can!

I'm for most of your anti-feminist rants, but some of them, like this last one, just don't make sense!

Thanks Amy,

Mary's point of view doesn't account for the fact that the economy has been rigged against families being supported by husband's income,as they used to be.

Anna said (March 4, 2013):

I am a woman and I disagree very strongly with this article. I understand that this particular woman doesn’t like her job (or to work at all) and she prefers to stay home and take care of her children, but putting it out there like if we all were like her means sabotaging all efforts of many women who enjoy their jobs and are proud of equal rights and this is something that bothers me very much.

God doesn’t allow men to take orders from women? The worst think a person can do is to ADD something to God’s scripture. God made husband a head of the family, but he didn’t say this man can’t have a female boss in his office.

As for the salaries, today many women work and so they bring as much money to the table as their husbands do, which means that, yes, we and men can be paid equally for the same job, ever if we’re single, married or widowed.

I also don’t agree with the rest of the article – I have a career that I love and I’m still feminine, I’m not more moody than men I know, I don’t oppress other women and I like change, so being in a familiar territory at all times would drive me crazy... I honestly don’t know where does this woman take her observations from, because I don’t observe it in my surroundings whatsoever.

I believe that articles like that can only either annoy women who don’t feel that way (like me), it may upset some other women, who would feel guilty that they’re not female enough, because they don’t feel the way that Kenyan woman does or it may simply cause men to pressure the women in their lives to change their lifestyle towards this “natural law”, because they liked the sound of the article.

Don’t get me wrong – if this author doesn’t like the ways of modern society, she can live however she wants – good for her, but at the same time she shouldn’t speak for all the women out there, sabotaging our efforts to enjoy our careers and work life in general.


Al Thompson said (March 4, 2013):

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this article. There may be hope for mankind if a young lady from Kenya has such remarkable insight and respect for the natural law. Maybe we aren't all that stupid after all. This was a great article; not good, but great. Mary pointed to things that I hadn't thought of before regarding
women in the workplace. Having a family is much better than working a career. A family gives a woman a better sense of purpose than having careers. The natural law demands it.
