We are Past Feminism

The newly released, blatantly pornographic film Fifty Shades of Grey contains even more than meets the eye.  It shows quite clearly where the sexual revolution is at.

We are past feminism.
Without acknowledging God, women stray from natural
law and eventually despair, "What am I made for?"

Feminism is the idea of women being socially equal to men.  This idea is false since, for example, women are obviously more suited to be mothers and men are obviously more suited to do heavy work.  Essentially, feminism only serves to deny a woman her natural strengths and promote her weaknesses.

But now we see new levels of abasement in popular culture when it comes to a woman's role.

Yes, Fifty Shades of Grey sinks even lower into realms of social, physical and psychological abuse.  The film promotes a lifestyle of seeking happiness in breaking all the rules.  This attitude dismisses God and natural law, creating an inhuman environment in which confusion and perversion reign supreme.  Dignity, the inherent nobility we have as children of God, cannot exist without grace.  Consequently, immoral lifestyles progress to become even more licentious and abusive until they eventually reach despair.

Chivalry, that marvelous regard for graceful femininity, is unable to survive amid such onslaught.  The kind of uncivilized behavior in a film like Fifty Shades of Grey truly removes from life all that is mythical, divine and beautiful.

When beauty is gone, so is eternal salvation!

What are we to conclude?

"To a great extent the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women."
-Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen


*Please realize that I have not seen the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, knowing enough already to conclude the basis of my article.*
