The amazing decline of American women

When I was born in the '60s, the decline had already begun, but growing up women were still a stabilizing force in society; an anchor for morality, grace, poise and sweetness. It used to be the girl that kept the "wolf" at bay saying no. It used to be when the girl gave in and said 'yes', there was some level of shame. It used to be the girl who had her head on straight being more mature than the boys by years. It used to be that girls had dreams of fairy tales and princes. It used to be that girls were the safe drivers on the road.

While there are still quite a number of good solid girls/women the decline in recent decades has been staggering. Today, more often than not the crazy driver that cuts you off and nearly runs you off the road is a woman. Today, more often than not the driver to flip you the bird for driving safely is a woman. Today, the girls are at least as sexually agressive as the guys. It used to be that the men had the reputation for molesting kids. Now we hear about a woman school teacher having relations with students at least once per week. It is quite rare to see sweetness in a girl, much less grace and poise.

Yesterday the AMA came out with a statement on girls and sprink break. All of the reports I heard were in the form of snickering and yucking it up about the behavior. Some polling data is outright disgusting:
-- 74 percent of respondents said women use drinking as an excuse for outrageous behavior.

-- 57 percent of women agreed that being promiscuous is a way to fit in.

-- 83 percent of women had friends who drank the majority of the nights while on spring break.

-- 59 percent know friends who were sexually active with more than one partner.

-- Nearly three out of five women know friends who had unprotected sex during spring break.

-- One in five respondents regretted the sexual activity they engaged in during spring break, and 12 percent felt forced or pressured into sex.

-- 84 percent of respondents thought images of college girls partying during spring break may contribute to an increase in females' reckless behavior.

-- 86 percent agreed these images may contribute to dangerous behaviors by males toward women.

-- 92 percent said it was easy to get alcohol while on spring break.

-- Two out of five women agreed access to free or cheap alcohol or a drinking age under age 21 were important factors in their decision to go on a spring break trip.
My post is not an intrusion into what people do in their private lives, but a statement on the sheer volume of participants and the direction woman seem to be going. John Wesleys mother either created or made the statement famous "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world". The mothers of our children have a great opportunity and influence on our children at such early ages. How many of these new mothers were in the last few years participating in a spring break orgy? Only 1 in 5 had any regrets of this behavior. I remember how as a teenager some friends of mine and I would notice an attractive girl. In the middle of said admiration, she would pull out a cigarette and that would kill it instantly. Today we see girls falling all over the place drunk, passing out, throwing up, throwing themselves on guys, etc. These are the next generation of mothers.

My post is in no way designed to portray woman as trailer trash and men pure as snow. Men have been rogues, crazy drivers, prone to immorality for a long time. The woman had a way, though, of taming the beast and mitigating the worst. It is disheartening to see this decline in woman. It is becoming more difficult to say that "Behind every great man stands a great woman."

    I cannot decide is which is worse.

    The id principle of hedonistic behavior often exhibited by western women and men. (Equally)

    Or

    The superego principle of oppression exerted by Muslim men and the submissive nature accepted by Muslim women.

    Somewhere there has to be a happy medium.

    Great post.
    It's so true that women used to be the conscience of this country. There were things that women back in the thirties and forties simply would not put up with.

    Equality has arrived with such a high price tag.

    My wife is a very happy medium :)

    The unfortunate thing regarding these girls and their future motherhood is that a child learns most of what they are in the first few years of life. These girls even if they do "grow up" and become more responsible have already instilled their lack of good judgement into their kids. They now may have better judgement just when their kids are becoming teens and young adults. So they butt heads like billy goats.

    I know that I'm gonna sound like my old man, but the kids that are coming up today are in for a RUDE Awakening as are their Yuppie Parents.

    I see these punks that think their tough Rappers and OG's from Compton and they’re nothing, but two bit Upper middle class snot noses trying to play the part. A lot of them live off a trust fund or have their Mom and Dads pay their way while they Slack. They have nothing resembling a Work Ethic and have no real passion for anything, but getting hammered or Stoned.

    This is the progeny of the Yuppie/Baby Boomer generation. If their parents had spent more time raising them instead working 60-hour weeks ass kissing and Backstabbing their way to the top of the corporate ladder they wouldn't be this way. Instead of offering real parenting they threw money at the problem and indulged they’re every whim. Now this generation is coming of age with NO CLUE about how the real world works.

    I hope nobody expects these Slackers to take care of them in their old age ‘cause they will be very disappointed if they do, but then again with the debt that Bush and the Baby Boomers have saddled them with I wouldn’t bust my butt to help out the Baby Boomers if I was them either. Truly, my generation (the baby Boomers) is a self absorbed one that will drive this country into the ground all for it's own self-absorbed good time.

    Or as today’s well fed fat Middle Aged Yuppie would say: “to hell with the country or future Generations, I GOT MINE!!!”

    Luckily, my son has found a young woman who is beautiful, smart, independent but still sweet, sensitive, sober and anchored in faith. Her kind are definitely an endangered species...but we have to look deeply at why this is so - not to find blame, but to prevent the further decline, disrespect and degrading of American womanhood by those who find it profitable to do so.

    zenmoonstar,

    thanks for commenting. We are all blessed when we find a great woman.

    I agree that we must find the cause, but I also believe a lot comes from the parenting. The family is basic cell that controls the organism that is the state.
