Satan’s little servitors are worried about the declining appeal of one of their greatest weapons, feminism:
THE GEN Z GIRLS REPPING THE ‘TRADWIFE’ LIFE
Mention the word “tradwife” and you might imagine the 1950s archetype: A “traditional wife” in a dress and an apron, smiling at her husband and three kids while presenting a gleaming beef roast at the dinner table, pleased as ever in her domestic domain.
How TikTok and a Gen Z aesthetic are selling a lifestyle used to justify misogyny and white supremacy in America
For a swath of right-wing American men, that image is part of a fantasy of how things “used to be,” in the good ol’ days before antifa and Black Lives Matter and feminist YouTubers ruined everything. The tradwife symbolizes stability — at least for those who imagine social change as an attack on their identity and being. It is the “submissive and breedable” meme, made unironic by chauvinism. It is, ultimately, a hatred of women going their own way.
Which made it all the more surprising when Mariel Cooksey began noticing the Gen Z women and girls actively repping the tradwife aesthetic and lifestyle online. Cooksey, a researcher at the Institute for Research on Male Supremacy, decided to study why and how this rhetoric spreads, and found that teen girls are being attracted to the movement thanks to an evolution in how tradwife ideas are marketed and presented.
They ruin. We build. They cohabit in sterility. We marry and multiply. They die off in the present. We show up for the future.
They lose. We win.
Reject feminism and show up for the future.
