Nicole Madigan-Everest posted an article at The Punch recently, entitled “Mummywars – how mothers are our own worst enemies”. Her conclusion, as puerile as it is vacuous, is that Mothers should just give up their petty jealousies and support each other, like, you know?
Mothers supporting mothers ??? Who does Madigan-Everest think she’s fooling? Everyone knows that women, deep down, despise each other unless there’s personal advantage in not doing so.
There isn’t a mother alive who wouldn’t sacrifice another woman’s baby to protect her own. Why? Because women are deeply rooted in the earth, and the earthly drive is to survive, or help one’s genes survive, at all costs. And no matter how moral a woman is, how good a person she is, how kind, how caring, how selfless, there’s no time in her life when she is more attached to Mother Earth than when she has a baby. Nothing is more important than the survival and flourishment of her offspring.
A good mother is, by definition, one who most successfully puts the needs of her child before others. This can only mean, deep down, she can’t seriously care for another’s child in a way that optimises their growth. That would require her best efforts, which she must reserve for her own child. She may be kind and helpful, to a point, but that would have more to do with storing up ‘support credit’ with the other mother against the day when she or her own child are in need. It is a self-centred act. Not self-ish, mind, but self-centred.
This is where a man is so desperately needed in a child’s life. A mother can raise a physically healthy child, but for support, a mother needs the father. To raise a good child requires a father. A mother can try to do this, but the self-centred feelings she has for her child will always…always, deep down, elicit self-centredness in the child. A father is needed to teach the child how to be self-less. As such, if we want to live in a civilised society, the importance of the father must not be understated. There are literally thousands of studies that show the negative impact on society of single motherhood – increased delinquency, drug abuse, criminality, violence, low-self-esteem, isolation, teen pregnancy, even suicide.
Yet, in this article Madigan-Everest makes how many references to fathers? Let’s count them…er, none. Instead she implies mothers alone comprise the “parenting world”. She knows the readership of The Punch is more or less equally divided between males and females, yet she makes ZERO reference to the critical role of a male in tempering the self-centredness inherent in motherhood. Before you complain that the article was only about mothers, I say it is absolutely about fathers – or rather the wilful, misguided absence of any reference to them. This omission defines the very problem to the solution Madigan-Everest purports to find – i.e. removal of the father from the parenting equation.
This is a growing problem in Australian society, facilitated in no small part by the gender feminist ideologues that have swelled the ranks of the family services sector. If their highly discriminatory National Council’s Plan for Australia to Reduce Domestic Violence Against Women and Their Children, 2009-2021 passes through both Houses of Parliament and makes it into Family Law, the role of the father in a child’s life will be so trivialised and undervalued that self-centredness will be the defining character of parenting in the country. Australia will become little more than a perpetual creche, in which everyone gets a gold star just for being alive.
Actually, ‘The Plan’ will go much, much further than this – it wants to criminalise the presence of a father in a child’s life and, indeed, men in general. Read this article on what it proposes and shake in your booties.
Apartheid has begun its ugly march into our beloved country, supported in no small part by candyapple articles like Madigan-Everest’s that treat Australians all like children, and it’s happening ON OUR WATCH.
