I plunged into my adult life being shaped by my peers and school. Makes sense because this is where I spent 12 years of my life; getting raised. After taking the school to work assessment my councelor told me that according to my results, I would make a good cop or janitor. Hmmm... Decisions, decisions... What a joke! It destroyed my selfworth and spiralled me down a path of Femanism. Nobody is going to do it but me! Because I had a gift in art I decided to go to beauty school so I could "create beautiful hair". In the meantime I had a boyfriend and was also a partime nanny. By the age of 20 I was married, had a child. That of coarse was not enough, so I decided to buy a fitness franchise and open full service spa and fitness center in my home town. My husband was very supportive, even though this meant my comute would be 2 hours to work. So now at 23 we had built a brand new house, sold it for a profit, number 3 baby was on the way (because I wasn't going to be an old mom). I had accomplished major goals in life (without a major degree), standing on my mountain at 24. Here is a list of the roles I played in a day: Wife, mother, homemaker, cometologist, aerobics instructor, nutritionalist, bookkeeper, business owner and artist. Not in that order and not done well either. I slowly began to realize that what I was molded into for those 12 years of my life were a big fat lie. My mountain did not make me happy. Being a femanist is very destructive and selfcentered. Fact: men and women are scientifically different. In school, I was taught that men and women are equal. This is true. However, they did not teach you that physically our bodies are made to do different things. More importantly, the question never asked is "why is this so?" Simply by looking at bodies, we can logically conclude that women are not men. I did not just say that men are better than women. History always sheds light on these matters. After you look at what happened economically after the Femanist movement, tell me, are families stonger? Do we have enough jobs for everyone? Families are crumbling because nobody is "home"! In fact I wonder if 'stay at home' is even on the list for careers on the assessment in highschool. This message is really about clearing out the imprint of what our culture, schools, and government has put in our minds. Back to my story. After having my eyes opened to the reality that we were in fact being indoctrinated by someones religion (which is just a belief system), we decided that we wanted to be in charge of that for our children. Ask yourself, just who is spending the most time with your family? Is being superwoman going make your family stronger or weaker? Please do your homework here. A strong economy is built on strong families. We've deciced to homeschool our children and now I do hair part-time out of my home. We are not struggling and have dinner together almost every night. Again, I can't emphasize enough to study history (sourcefully) and decide for yourself. Our culture doctrinate you if let it. This is called religion. And this religion was not working for me. I have a huge hunch, just given that this topic is even being talked about, that this religion that's being pounded in us, is not working for others too. So, do we stay doing to the same thing? I realized that my worth (what mattered most), was found fulfilling my responsibility of have children and actually being their mother. Oh yeah, my husband and I have a wonderfull marriage and it all fell into place when I realized that I was being lied to. So, the truth set me free! Truth is the best religion.
Topics to study: The history and people behind; femanism, education, and historical revisionism.
