Hello, my name is Mike and I am NotYourAverageMillennial
This post is for the ladies which I decided to title “Liberty For Ladies”, I was inspired to write this post because I think that it is important for women to promote the idea of liberty. This is just my opinion, but I feel that women are more concerned with security than liberty. Now this may not be the case for all women, but it may be safe to say that most women think more of security. This could be due to continuous conditioning from parents, the media, friends, and society.
My goal today is to have more ladies appreciate liberty even more. You may feel like you do already and I’m not ignoring this. However, I will share with you some ways that you can increase liberty within your mind and then live it in this world. Always remember that liberty begins with liberty of thought.
1) You Don’t Need a Man To Validate Who You Are
Ladies, you were probably told all your life to find a man who makes good money, marry him, and have his children. Now let me be very clear: I find nothing wrong with this. However, if you feel that you will never be good enough if you never get married or have children, then I have to shoot straight and tell you that you are not thinking for yourself.
Now most likely you will disagree with me and swear that you are but if you think about what I tell you, then you may discover that you were not thinking for yourself all along. Put it this way, did you always have this want to find a mate, get married, and have kids? I mean did this idea pop into your head organically? Is it possible that this line of thinking formed over time due to what society drilled into your head through the media, or due to what your mother may have told you, or your friends? You don’t have to answer. Just think to yourself is it possible that the want grew from outside influences.
It could be possible that this isn’t what YOU really want. Maybe you have goals and dreams that marriage and a family would not allow you to pursue. Once again, I will say, if you want to live a traditional life of a wife and a mother, then by all means go for it. But do not let society tell you that you are wrong if you have other plans. After all, you have a right to live life the way you want just like a man does.
2) Don’t Feel Like You Have To Be Sexual To Gain Approval
As a man I find women to be a pleasing sight to behold and the touch of a woman is soft and nurturing. I also am all for sex because, well, I’m a man. However, some women feel like they must be sexual in order to get ahead. In today’s world this may work, but in the end would it be safe to say that a woman may regret her decision to use her sexuality in order to get what she wants? Maybe I’m wrong. Some women would say: “If you got it, flaunt it.”
If I were a woman, I would rather someone values me for my mind or the principles I live by rather than by my body. Remember ladies, you’re not just a piece of meat that someone can put on the grill in order to satisfy someone’s appetite. The media knows that sex sells, which is why they take advantage of the sexuality of women. This can be degrading and women have more to offer than just a “big butt and a smile”.
3) Shopping Won’t Make You Feel Better
It seems as if most women like to ease their pain by going shopping. This has been called retail therapy. Again, in moderation, shopping is not necessarily a bad thing. Who doesn’t like to get new things now and then? But how does owning multiple pairs of shoes making you feel better.
I have learned that the more things you have, the less happy you are. Again this is conditioning from the media, society and friends. Ladies are more inclined to materialism. This is not to insult women, because there are men that have this issue as well. However, shopping is more of an activity that women are more likely to overindulge in.
If a man goes shopping, usually he will go in to the store he wants, buy exactly what he wants and then leave. A woman is more inclined to looking around and most likely buying more than she needs. Simply put, women are likely to impulse shop.
For women to be liberty minded, they have to come to terms that more stuff will never make them happier. They have to break the shopping spell.
4) You Have Natural Beauty, Don’t Use Make-Up as a Crutch!
I understand a woman’s need to feel beautiful. I also must be very clear once again that you are free to use make-up because that is the great thing about liberty. You can do as you please provided that you are not keeping anyone else from liberty. However, most women won’t leave the house without make-up. Again, this is something that society has conditioned women to do and to believe that it is something that they cannot live without.
Painting your face with chemicals just to get attention is not a sign of someone who is thinking liberty. On the contrary, their thinking is under the control of societal standards and the approval of others. Liberty is being who you are unrestricted by the thoughts of others.
To my female readers, I hope I didn’t come off as harsh or confrontational. My point of writing this article is to plant a seed that no one may have planted as yet. In order to live liberty it must live in the mind first. You will never be able to be truly free unless you free your mind from the chains of societal standards. This is very different from the typical thinking of women, but imagine what it can do for society if women changed their thinking towards a path of liberty.
