The Protestant Reformation Led to the Rise of Feminism?

A link suggeted by Amy Welborn: Women and the Protestant Reformation

Luther and the Reformers went to war against the evangelical counsels as ideals and as the core of a vowed, religious life. Every woman—it was assumed—was meant for marriage, children, and homemaking.

The Power of the Vice of Pride

Feminism is built on the error that just because a woman has a quality (usually intelligence) comparable to men or perhaps even superior to most men, she can take the place of a man.

Confessions of Love

Maybe beta confessions of love as shown in this AKB48 PV (and held to be ideal by many immature Asian teenagers) can be somewhat successful with those who are more innocent or naive (or emotionally repressed) -- and after all, don't East Asians mature later? Still, being alpha would be even more effective with the innocent girls.

Where are the men to teach these teenaged males how to be men? And if the ones who are successful in the video are the more assertive and "attractive" males " (there is one rejection), we should not be shocked that so many Japanese men are going their own way and being "herbs."

(Makes one wonder if the AKB48 girls are being genuine in their expression of emotions. Are they really touched by such gestures of "pure love"? Or are they themselves actually waiting for the high-status Japanese men to take ownership of them?

Any Hope for the Millenials?

How Millennials Became ‘Generation Meh’ by Teresa Mull
With nothing to rebel against, we've lost our edge.

A r-selected population? Or should one reduce political conflict, as Jonathan Haidt does, to individuals with competing personality traits that are somehow equal in value and goodness, with the corollary that millenials have come to possess a set of certain traits but lack [many] others? I prefer a more classical analysis: what has been generated is a soft, pampered, dulled male population that has been successfully pacified and emasculated. There is nothing to "rebel" against because someone in such a condition is unable to perceive the evils that exist and to take action against those evils. "When liberty is taken away, no one will miss it."

Is this the natural consequence of urbanization or the intended outcome of a deliberate program by the state to preserve its power against all possible threats (including the people)? The cause does make a difference in how we respond to the problem.

The incorporation and application of feminism as state ideology by those holding political and economic power, leading to a soft matriarchy over education and increasingly the government bureaucracies and the judiciary, expedites the emasculation even more.
But generation Z may turn out to be more based than the millenials, especially if we help to make it so.

Will There Be a Return to the Medieval University?

There is no financial infrastructure for it, and today's good Catholic colleges are a pale comparison with the Catholic medieval university. They may feel fortified within a conservative enclave, but just wait until they hire their first SJW (who is more likely than not to be a woman, and of course our conservative Catholic intellectuals have to show how egalitarian they are but hiring women). The sort of accountability that is required for honest debate and discussion can only be found within a group of men, and that is not always what happens. A woman who must submit and show deference or respect to men because of their unequal social standing isn't really a peer for such a discussion. An university doesn't not operate separate from the political community; rather it is an instantiation of the political community, and a teacher or scholar cannot divide his identity into two separate spheres of life. As a teacher or scholar he is also at the same time a member of the political community; he is accountable not only to his colleagues at the school but to his fellow citizens in the polis.
