Petrified Men

Fear runs deep in men these days and because of such it is clear why feminism is here to stay.

In speaking of KellyAnne Conway, President Trump said this:

‘There is no den she will not go into. When my men are petrified to go on a certain network I say, “Kellyanne will you go?” Then she gets on and she just destroys them.

It looks like his men have their first dibs on doing the tough television appearances, but they are “petrified”. So, because the men have no balls, a woman stands up and runs with it. Someone has to fill the void. Women will continue to be in leadership positions for as long as men will be afraid. If men are intimidated to take on a bunch of pansy news reporters, they certainly can’t take on fighting the beast that is feminism.

  1. The three oldest Trump kids’ marriages reflect a response of kids who know that Dad didn’t leave them, he left Mom. This is not necessarily typical for divorced kids, but it can happen and the kids then try to marry to avoid facing that kind of choice.

    Don Jr. married a woman who wanted to immediately pop out kids for him, and plenty of them. She was all-in on motherhood immediately, not competing in business. She may run a business or something, or have hobbies/interests, but she is much more overtly domestic than his mother Ivana and not competitive.

    Ivanka just wanted to be like Daddy but could not exactly pretend she didn’t look like Mommy. So she committed herself asap to a guy who was ok with her career aspirations and who could fund the support base to have those aspirations and 3-5 kids (not 100%, but I think she wants one or two more, not digging around for interviews on it though).

    And Eric married someone who was like him, going along to get along and not really trying to take over the world, but definitely who could work the team-couple angle. They give a strong impression of a team-couple, like his parents were during their early and middle childhoods.

    None of them have made it to the 20 year mark, so we’ll see if they can best their parents’ marriage length.

  2. “How did the Trump children turn out so well, being through a few divorces and being raised mostly by nannies.”

    I honestly don’t know for sure. Trump has said in interviews that each of their mothers had a large role in raising them and did a great job. The more I listen to him, the more I think he had a larger influence than he says he did. They obviously adore him. It would be interesting if one or more of them would ever write a book about what it was like to grow up Trump.

  3. Good point, TCW.

    As a related question, I was thinking how Lori has often spoken of the damage done to kids who come from divorced families and/or are raised by nannies. How did the Trump children turn out so well, being through a few divorces and being raised mostly by nannies. They way Lori writes the Trump kids should have turned out as basketcases.

  4. ” Women will continue to be in leadership positions for as long as men will be afraid. If men are intimidated to take on a bunch of pansy news reporters, they certainly can’t take on fighting the beast that is feminism.”

    Hard-working, good-willed women who aren’t afraid of or envious of men who are strong and good-willed, will always have leadership positions. Men who are truly strong recognize strength in those around them and lift them up without feeling threatened. That’s what good leaders do. They encourage others to be their best. They put their strength to the service of the good. They don’t raise women up just because they complain and make a lot of noise. They also don’t keep them just because they are women if they have proven themselves to have a good work ethic and real talent.

    Weak men will either raise feminists up out of fear of their complaining or will keep good women down because they see them as a threat to their own power.

  5. Yes, that was a good way to put it and that is how our household is run. I drove myself mad trying to fit into traditional roles when really it just wasn’t practical for our family. Now it’s very much about who sees crap that needs done/has the most time/best skilled is the one who jumps in and does it.

  6. I think the greater point here is President Trump is taking a pragmatic approach to situations because when works needs to be done, it needs to be done. The assertive– person steps up to the plate. It’s about getting work done.

    What a lot of traditionalists and feminists don’t realize it this doesn’t mean that “roles” are being usurped, nor does it mean we should break the non-existent “patriarchy”– it means those who are willing to step up first are the ones who get recognized and rewarded. Whoever thinks this is part of the feminist agenda needs to wake up, because bad things happen when people wait for others to take initiative.
