AV: Egalitarianism’s dirty secret: the sexual objectification of women

God is not an egalitarian. That is not a controversial statement. Neither is saying that the strong should protect the weak. These statements border on the obvious, yet the implications of these ideas can be controversial. The sexual objectification of women, and women specifically, is a sin worthy of being looked at closely precisely because men are the stronger vessel. Objectification and sexual objectification can … Continue reading AV: Egalitarianism’s dirty secret: the sexual objectification of women

Mercatornet: Jane Austen’s Marriage Challenge

During the last couple of weeks, while Jane Austen fans have been paying tribute to the famous novelist on the 200th anniversary of her death, devotees of a very different type of fiction have been getting their fix of Game of Thrones, Season 7.

MercatorNet: It shouldn’t be ground-breaking that women are not men

[Editor’s note: In the end, our goal isn’t to achieve a purer form of feminism, but biblical femininity. This is an important distinction. This article is a rich and rewarding read otherwise.

4 Reasons Modesty Empowers Women

Empowering? I don’t think so. A study called “The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness” stated, “Women are less happy nowadays despite 40 years of feminism. Despite having more opportunities than ever before, they have a lower sense of well-being and life satisfaction.” Rather than jumping on board with our culture’s push to undress, I’m proposing a new method for empowering women. Modesty. I strongly believe … Continue reading 4 Reasons Modesty Empowers Women

Civilization and Self-Control

“I don’t want men looking at me lustfully when I work here.” This is how a Muslim girl, cashier at Wal-Mart, replied to my wife’s question about the purpose of her head-covering, wrapped tightly around her head, covering everything except her face. A civilization is built on the self-control of men. When men are able to refuse to obey their childish whims, their energy is … Continue reading Civilization and Self-Control

Fashion Design – Intelligent Design

As she walks in the room, you pause your discussion, every attribute of her unique character diverting your attention. There is no particular point of emphasis in the picture she presents, though she is a purposeful arrangement of colors, contours, and textures. None of it is self-referential, but rather an introduction which piques your interest in what seems to be a vast and thriving world, of which she is an important and integral part. Her clothing speaks of intelligence; a maturity that exceeds her youth. Continue reading “Fashion Design – Intelligent Design”
