Thoughts to a Young Woman

In this age where truth is despised
and advocating moderation and common decency
is regarded as ‘hate speech’,
my heart breaks for little children today.

Most especially, I suppose, for girls who are
– very evidently – being taught
that it is somehow a shame, or weakness,
to want to behave or dress … like a Lady.

I remember when women
found it no humiliation to be feminine;
nor felt the need to impersonate
crude, obnoxious, and vulgar men.

PROFANITY: Revealing Personal Depravity to the World

There are Multitudes using the “power”
of the Internet, who have no business being … On …
the Internet.

Many – had they the ‘mirror’ of a moral Conscience,
would writhe in shame at the open example
they present of themselves and their crude character.

Had they but the wit or conscience, most
would remove every trace of themselves
from public display.

Along with Humility and Modesty,
the conscience to feel ashamed,
is a characteristic that is now all but extinct.

“Self Esteem” – the eradication of discernment,
discretion, and self control has replaced principled humanity
with vulgar savages.

Modern society does not find it shocking
for a 15-year old to copulate like a rodent;
But the 19 year old
who remains a virgin is … “weird”.

For a teenage girl to expose breasts, thigh,
and midriff, is “fashionable” …
But the girl who dresses modestly
is a … “prude”.

And certainly, the whole modern world … KNOWS
( don’t they ?) … that, If a girl or woman is quiet,
lady-like; and consistently seen to be
wearing a dress … she is … “in a religious cult”.

So perverse has the modern mind-set become that,
if a teenager can be found who can NOT recite
the sexually obscene lyrics of the latest “pop” song;

if a boy reads a book rather than
putrefies his brains on computer games;
or a girl cherishes family values
and standards of moral restraint,

they are deemed to be “brainwashed”,
“victims” of ‘child abuse’, having been denied
the “freedom” to experience modern culture.

“Modern Culture?”

CULTURE ?

A society that is characterised by Self Esteem –

vanity, greed, hedonism,
ambition, commercialism,
the absence of self discipline,
filthy language as ‘conversation’,
cinematic violence, vengeance, torture
and sexual promiscuity … as ‘entertainment’

THIS … is … “Culture” ?

Parents allow their teens to attend ‘house parties;,
roam the streets at all hours; or go “clubbing”
amidst the deafening noise, promiscuous immorality;
of an inherent liquor-and-drug culture …

… but think it AB-normal for a teen to attend
a church youth group and be home by ten
– out of respect for their parents’ home.

As a teenager in the 1970’s,
I was never out past ten o’clock.
Never needed to be. Never wanted to be.

In excusing the depravity of the 21st century,
people exclaim: “Oh, but, remember
when YOU were a teen!”

I do.

THOUGHTS to A Young Woman

“A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast”

More than a few young women would save themselves
a lifetime of misery and grievous disappointment
if they would but take the time to look
at the way a ‘boyfriend’ treats the animals
that are dependent upon his care.

Before you commit yourself to any man, woman,
“friend”, or potential business partner,
give them plenty of opportunity … to talk.

And LISTEN to them.

Listen to how they talk about people
who are moral, quiet, and benevolent;
about their own parents;
about their pets, or the livestock on their family farm.

Listen.

And discern the nature of the “tree”
by the “fruit” that it bears.

Where an animal is involved … Look.
Open your eyes. Observe.
THINK about what you see.

Look at the family dog – is it kept on a chain,
a rope, confined to a doghouse that is damp,
without clean bedding, or just plain filthy?

Is it thrown into the back of a pickup truck
to brace itself to minimize being thrown about,
or even thrown over the side?

Does the dog noticeably cringe, quiver,
or startle? Does he ‘snap to attention’ – instantly,
whenever his owner comes near?

One is resigned to a potential beating.
The other agitates to avoid one.

One is timid, defeated.
The other is terrified.

People lie.
A dog will not.

To any thoughtful teenage girl, I would say simply that:

any ‘man’ who does not show compassion
for an animal in their care … will NEVER
show genuine compassion FOR YOU –
no matter how self-deluded you may wish to be.

Many a young woman has said of a savage brute:
“I will change him”. Will you?

An illustration:

I will stand on the floor beside a table.
You climb up, and stand upon the table.

Now … Lift me up to where you are.

Will you succeed?

Perhaps.

But it is most unlikely.

DISCERNING Character

Even without owning one, I recognise that,
since the 1980’s, Television has portrayed
the self-centred laziness and arrogance as being
commonplace in ‘everyday’ American people.

from Archie Bunker in 1970,
or the crass vulgarity of the Simpsons in the 1990’s,
the example is the same:

lazy, apathetic, stupid, slovenly adults
being corrected by belligerent, back-talking brats
have typified the “average” American family
for well over 30 years.

And this infection has spread to the world.

In the mid-1990’s, the depravity of television
was superseded by the Internet – a platform
to saturate users with the ‘whatever I think is truth’ displays
of the alliterate, the ignorant, and the apathetic
– all vying for ‘likes’, ‘subscribers’, and ‘followers.

Multitudes could now exalt themselves as an ‘expert’
on the basis of having read a book;
gleaned some minimal experience;
or (heaven help us) watched a video.

And always, there is the scathing contempt
and obscene displays of hatred towards anyone
who is quiet, timid, or seeks to live a Moral life.

And ready excuse for every form of outright Evil:
from ‘I’m on medication’, to ‘Mummy didn’t hug me’,
to being ‘raised in a poor neighbourhood’.

Wise Elders, Mature Adults, and Professional Teachers
were replaced by any profanity-spewing
Tom, Dick, or Harriet
who had a computer and a camera.

Self-centred men, women, boys and girls
gratify greed, lust, or ambition
above any other consideration
And that, Young Woman, includes You.

You will not make them see … ‘reason’.
They have none.

Evil men delight to degrade and pervert
anything that is Moral –
and that includes you … if you are.

They have no conscience whatsoever
about defaming or destroying anyone
who excels themselves in character or morals.

As five minutes’ on the Internet
will clearly reveal.

They are Brutal, Vicious; Loud, and Aggressive
… and call it “strength”.

Beware of anyone who is constantly
prating on about themselves or their endeavours.

I would not like to be a moral, conscientious,
young man or woman starting out in life today;
because there IS No moral centre
in the world today.

Young woman,

Be a Lady, rather than an Object;

Be a Lady, rather than a pathetic imitation
of an aggressive, ‘macho’ savage.

IF – If – you have a tender heart
and a discerning mind,
they will be the greatest possessions
that you will Ever own.

Never allow them to be taken away from you.
