Well, there are lots of reasons, of course. To try and suggest that there is one all-encompassing trait that makes Feminism destructive to it’s very target group would be misleading. But in the wake of Maggie Thatcher’s tragic passing, I have briefly ruminated.
Feminists should have been shouting her name from the rooftops as an example of Female Power at its finest. But they are not. Feminists hated Attila the Hen — Absolutely despised her. Yet here she was, one of the most powerful people in the world, genuinely intelligent, wise beyond her years and scope, and not just an equal to men; but a superior to them. She was also a woman, but not even the frivolous sort — Oozing class and femininity, Maggie didn’t need to sugar coat her appearance or communication style. She truly did earn her name of ‘Iron Lady’.
One popular statement made by the feminist crowd on Maggie is;
It is somewhat sick-making to see a successful woman lauded as a feminist icon and to be told any other woman who equals her owes her a great debt; when said woman would quite happily climb over her sister’s heads to triumph. — Sqeamish Kate of xoJaneUK
That much is echoed by ‘BA Fashion Journalism graduate, magazine intern and badass feminist’ (her words not mine), Jenny Anderson of the Huffington Post.
She helped to make career women the norm and she did it unapologetically. However, this is the woman that claimed, “I owe nothing to women’s lib.” Sorry Margaret, but you owe your entire bloody career to women’s lib. Margaret Thatcher never set out to improve the life of women; she was there to achieve her personal ambitions and to do a job that she had fought for her whole political life.
Margaret Thatcher never claimed to be a feminist, in fact she claimed to detest feminism, and I don’t blame her. For in feminism, an ideology rooted only in the necessity of it’s own existence, we see the constant factor that women who were successful outside of their context are invalid — Yet I should point out that the only things feminist women have seemed to achieve, and the only things they are celebrated on, is advancing feminism.
An ouroboros of epic proportions! (feminism’s goal is to deploy women to advance feminism’s goal which is to deploy women to advance feminism’s goal.. etc..)
Women in the context of success in the real world are unimportant, and certainly having the same driving ambition as men in not stopping to pick up the wounded along the way to glory is an undesirable trait in an ideology that, while it claims to want equality for women, only seeks to shun success and subsidize failure in the name of ‘fairness’ like every other left-wing religion.
God bless, Maggie! You are an inspiration to women who don’t want to be trapped by self-victimization, and of the Pavlovian tactics of feminism that have stopped women, a historically caged species, from realizing that the door has long since been open - The world ready at the hilt.
“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

Del Tashlin @ Sex, Gods, and Rock Stars in “We Can Learn A Lot From Things That Annoy Us, Or What I Figured Out About The Proliferation Of Loki’s Wives Online.” Read it. Internalize it. He’s right and every person who says they are a spirit-worker, god-spouse, witch, spirit-walker, or whatever other title you use. If you think it might be aimed at you, it probably is.

So let me get this straight, you pretend to do something so new people will jump on board in an effort to impress you and be part of the group, which they are prone to do because they want a sense of belonging in the community they are so desperately trying to impress. There is nothing heroic or even honorable about this, you are an asshole, you are a bully, you are not a guide, or a teacher, you are a despicable person. I have to say I have been fairly mean in my life to newbies who make wild claims but never in life have I made something up that pertains to my practice in an effort to make someone else look stupid, that is cruel. I honestly have no words for how awful this is, and how sick this makes me feel.
So, what are immature people like that, who would say anything only to impress a stranger on the internet, even doing in intense spiritual path like being a priest or a spirit worker? Honestly, they should see this as a wake-up call, instead of complaining about what a bully the author is.
I don’t know why but I find it difficult-confusing that there could be godspouses for Apollo when he was so torn that he could not marry all the muses that he chose not to marry the first place??? Like I understand consorts but..?
I have mixed feelings regarding all this godspouse phenomenon, but…
1) The myths are not literal truths
2) A god-marriage is not a literal marriage
3) For a historical example, the Pythias were considered brides of Apollon
