Is our culture being ‘feminized?’

February 1, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

We are seeing a greater feminine representation in most forms of our culture, whether it is politics, business or even actors in the various television action/adventure shows. In many of the police programs today when the officers are paired up one is usually a female. This is not a bad thing and I am not, in any fashion, opposed to this. I am just wondering if it is a true representation or one that is being fostered upon us. A "politically correct" desire in our society. There are both up and down sides to this.

Many seniors can remember being brought up in a two-parent household. The mother ran the home and the father provided the financials needed to secure the necessities. Juvenile crime was much lower than today because the needed social behavior was taught in the home and misconduct was not permitted in the schools. It is not that way today. Somewhere along the way the term stay-at-home Mom became shunned. And we are all suffering for it. Society today is demanding, perhaps, too much from our females. Can females perform in what was once male-only positions? Yes! The question is, should they?

Many of the older recognized values are not so easily found or recognized. Those that attempt to hold those values today are often criticized, caricaturized and mocked. But the family suffers. The concept of "family" is minimized and we are the worse for it.

The family is the under belly of humanity.
