Mychael at Courtship Pledge describes a powerful lesson for her and her husband Scott’s daughter:
Last night, I decided to put on one of Scott’s favorite skirts and a nice sweater while I cooked and served dinner.
Just as I was about to serve the food, our daughter noticed and asked,
“Mommy, why are you wearing that skirt?”
I replied “because daddy likes it.”
Her face turned a little red, and I could see Scott was very satisfied with the response as well.
This simple act is profoundly countercultural, because feminism teaches women that wanting to please their husbands is beneath them. Yet, as Mychael explains, it felt natural. Her example is the opposite of the ugly feminist.
As I’ve shared before my own wife and daughter on occasion will put on a bit of a fashion show as my wife models new clothes that she bought (to see which ones I like the best so she can return the rest). It is truly joyful, and our daughter delights in it as much as my wife does.
Feminism has robbed modern women of much of the joy of life, but this is a fragile victory since there is always the risk that a new generation of women will catch a glimpse of the beauty, love, and joy that they are missing.
