  • I’ll clarify: I mean switching from pants to skirts will be the easiest thing for me. Some of the others on the list will be retraining bad habits. So, those will be harder for me.
    It is an easy switch to make, your husband will appreciate it and you will find that it changes your attitude to a far greater extent than you might expect. 
    Fathers must be allowed to lead boys in their masculinity and even though it is difficult for a mother we have to accept them taking risks.

  • By far the most important thing is always to have RESPECT, DEFERENCE, and OBEDIENCE towards your husband, no matter what ... even if outwardly he doesn't seem to live up to it, just as one would have respect for a priest even if he's not measuring up to his state in life.

    As for football, most leagues today are KEENLY aware of the potential for injury and concussions in particular.  Probably within 5-10 years we'll have only touch football being played at the High School level.  They're working on developing helmets to prevent concussions.

    In the case of a disagreement, you can make your opinion heard, but you must still RESPECT your husband's decision and defer to it.  Not just "keep silent" while stewing over it inside, but, as is the case with, say, the Magisterium, give a true internal assent.  That true internal assent owed to the Magisterium is the same type of attitude that a wife must have to her husband, and not just outward lipservice.  Once you develop that habit, feminism will very quickly be uprooted at the core.  Of course, the limit is that if the husband were to command something immoral or contrary to the laws of God or contrary to justice, but even then, instead of losing respect, ask a priest to intervene and set him straight.

    And, as Quid mentioned, NEVER EVER ridicule or poke fun of your husband.  Women tend to get together in groups and deride their husbands as if they were idiots.  Steer clear of the company of such women, and even object when the conversation turns in that direction.  You see all kinds of TV programs and commercials where the husband is always the idiot and the buffoon who must be "set straight" by his wife.  That's deliberate social engineering intended to upset the natural order created by God.

    Here's the thing about pants.  Women LOOK MUCH BETTER in dresses and skirts than in pants.  My wife looks beautiful in skirts and dresses, and I never tire of complimenting her when she wears them.  If you realize how much prettier and more feminine you look wearing a dress, you'll avoid going out in pants any more than you would go out in public with sweats and looking like you just rolled out of bed.  Guys, that, by the way, is the key, to winning pants-wearers over to wearing dresses and skirts.  Always notice and compliment exuberantly, "Wow, you look great in that dress."  That is the #1 way to motivate a woman ... rather than just getting all preachy about pants.  And my compliments to my wife are absolutely genuine, not just a tactic being used disingenuously.  So, men, properly develop your own sensibilities, and those of your wife will undoubtedly follow.

    And, laides, Susanne is right on target.  Men will notice it, and that respect that's programmed by God into man's nature with regard to all things feminine, will manifest itself.  I bet that without even thinking it, a man will start treating a wife who wears dresses and skirts with much more respect, and his chivalrous attitudes toward her will increase.  Watch a man who had rarely done so before suddenly start holding doors for his wife.

    Church's standard has long just been that they cover the knee.

    Padre Pio demanded a few inches longer, but I'm guessing that this was because women were trying to abuse the rules and going as short as they felt they could get away with ... treating it as some kind of legalistic technicality.  You sometimes see women yanking them down an inch or two to be in compliance temporarily, and then they ride up again quickly above their knees.

    I think that to be practical and remain modest in day to day life mid-calf is best. Definitely long enough to cover your knees completely when sitting. 
    A skirt which just cover your knees standing are not modest when playing with kids on the floor or doing the homework !

  • I was just thinking that lol I want something long enough too it doesn’t blow up in the wind.... 


    I was thinking of just donating my pants, and leggings. But wanted to know if that would be wrong condoning such dress in other women? If I’m not wearing them anymore is seems wasteful to put them in the garbage.

  • Personally I think the single biggest and most demonstrative rejection of feminism it the rejection and condemnation of the sin of birth control.

  • Obvious things:

    - contentiousness
    - contraception/abortion
    - short hair
    - wearing pants, shorts and sleeveless shirts
    - smoking
    - working a paid job or unpaid voluntary work while married
    - doing the more physical labors of household / homestead maintenance while the husband is able-bodied

    Subtle things:

    - belittling the husband or other men through "innocent" humor or idle talk with other people. This is a deliberate psychological campaign to attack the dignity of men and husbands that is ubiquitous in commercials, TV shows and movies. Women and men, alike, are easily influenced by it, and, usually, men are too asleep or soy to recognize it and stop it cold in its tracks.

    - involvement in any type of public awareness or event that is exclusively focused on females
    - equal say in household affairs
    - equal power over finances
    - wife discouraging sons from taking on physical hardships or anything that helps them become men.
    - wife encouraging daughters to compete with boys or teaching them they're "equal to boys"

    I know I'm missing some good examples. I'm sure there are some real good examples out there that other people can give...
    I really like this list. I work to fight what I call, "the feminist in me".

    Another horrible feminist trait is the, "I can do it myself or I can do it better than my husband."
    Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. 2Thessalonians 2:15

    Don't put them in the garbage. You could still wear leggings under your skirt to be warm in winter. The fabric in the pants can be recycled. I use jeans to make bags and other crafty things. Waste not - want not!

  • Keep a pair of baggy pants in case you have an injury that requires you to have physical therapy. You don't want to have PT in a skirt, believe me. You can wear a skirt over if you are able, but when I broke my back it was extremely difficult just to get dressed.

    Also, in regard to the original list, I do not agree with no volunteer work. Our chapel would not be able to function were it not for the (married) ladies who teach Catechism, hold dinners, bake sales, garage sales, give their time to the choir,clean the chapel etc.

  • Is contentiousness not a lack of charity? If so, how could it possibly apply only to the gentler sex?
