The Littleness of Women

The Thinking Housewife discusses the importance of remaining childlike in life. She cites St Therese of Lisieux: “It is truly sweet to feel weak and little.”

Professor Marie George writes in her article, What Aquinas Really Said About Women: “In our discussions of the differences between the sexes, we must avoid yielding to impulses of envy, but strive rather to love whatever littleness we may have due to our sex, as God loves it.”

And as a woman blogger and wife wrote at a guest post on this blog: “And this is true, women are not children; they are not men either.”

It seems to me that many of the problems between the sexes today arise from women forgetting their littleness.

Oddly, this issue has more than just philosophical interest. It is at the forefront of the recent attack by Hillary on the “Alt-Right” and the concept of hierarchies, as discussed by Steve Sailer here: “They also believe in sexual hierarchies.”

Pretty much everybody believed in a sexual hierarchy until a few years ago.

One response to this post.
