Hi, my name is Jillian Weiss and I am 21 years old. I am a proud patriot, I love America and enjoy stating my opinion about current events. I've been writing ever since I could pick up a pencil. Join me in this walk of writing.
America the land of the Oppressed?
I am a millennial living in modern day America. Where many of my young peers are liberal. According to them, I should have a fierce hatred for my country, I am oppressed because of my womanhood. No, that is not where the calamity lies. The calamity comes when someone like me, questions her fellow Americans who believe that America was never great. I believe we can still be happy in this country if we so chose to be. Do not let one voice speak for all, the liberals and the media would have the American people believe, that their policies and own agenda, is this country's only hope for a better future. When in truth all they care about is how your votes will benefit said agenda. These things are able to happen, however, because we live in freedom not oppression.
Dear Feminists, you do not speak for me. I do not need you to fight for my freedom, in fact, the freedom that I have has already been paid for in blood. Because men have fought and died for it. I am not under attack, I do not need you to claim that I am a victim. While you are out there branding each man as a predator, there are little girls waiting for their daddies to come home from war. You divide men and women, you do not speak for equality. You speak hatred, illogical, misplaced hatred. And because of this, I won't be following your movement. I am proud to be a young woman, that respects and honors the men in our society if they so deserve it. I embrace my femininity, not in the way that you do. I am a woman who dreams of a good man, standing beside me, not as a slave or a servant. But as a friend, a wife, a mother. I chose to embrace the things that make women, women, kindness, manners, elegance, integrity. It is these things that make men respect us. I enjoy it when a Man opens a door for me, or bids me good morning. As a little girl, I watched Disney movies, such as Cinderella, watching her glide across the floor with the Prince. He was captivated by her, not because she demanded anything, but because of the content of her character. When women embrace these things, we will no longer be divided. Retaliation is not what we strive for but love, dignity, and respect that has been earned, not merely given. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman being gentle, or staying home with her children, cooking for her family. In America, a woman can choose to work or choose to raise the children in the household. I cannot fathom what made women think that they are oppressed in a society where choice is everything. Scorn me for this, or do not, but some women are happy at home with the children. Having a mother in the home provides comfort and balance. This does not make a woman weak, in fact, she can be strong in her own way. Disciplining her children, achieving her goals and thinking for herself without hiding behind a movement. The sooner modern feminism is gone, the better. Women are not servants to men, no, they are partners. And if we are to be partners to them, how are we to make ourselves more appealing?
I hoped it was made to last
The world was filled with color until it changed and made me shudder. I had striven for your affection and believed that we were going in the right direction. I thought that I was your promise to keep. My heart clung to your words, your sweet, sweet words. I dreamed that those words would be a call to action and that it was meant to be. How naive. I shall forgive, I shall endure, but I will never, never, forget those sweet sweet words. The words that turned into naught but an empty, empty, promise. The heart can be a delicate thing if left unchecked, unguarded, lost in emotions that can make the head such a vicious, vicious mess. The emotions creating a jagged road while the mind keeps questioning the future that you may hold. Here I stand, seeing now that things did not turn out as planned.
Bringing Women Back
Time to ruffle some feathers. This is what I believe and I'm speaking out. Ladies! My dear American women! If any of you are sick of the feminist movement and what it represents today, you're in the right place. The modern-day movement of feminism divides men and women. It makes women victims of imaginary assault, it opposes logic and reason, leaving no room for the woman to define herself. Leaving only the mentality that with a victim status, they will reap rewards. No, they will gain resentment from good men.
Wrestling with My Head
The human mind is of a brilliant and intelligent design. It can help a person create beautiful paintings and stories, or solve an elaborate equation. Each brain mind is different. Every person, man, woman, child, have distinct thoughts going through their mind right now.
