There are those within the traditional-life movement that feel that superficial changes will make women more attractive and help to bring about the end of the war between the sexes. This is not the case. For as one who is MGTOW I can tell you that the problem with modern women is not their clothing, but rather their attitudes.
We wiser men know women’s clothing (just as it is for men’s) is simply a reflection of the poor selection available to them at retail stores and their poverty giving them little choice of something else.
Usually a person’s clothing choice is affected more by the practical considerations of having to do work in clothes which are cool but durable than style, but being unable to sew most people are stuck with the cheap, poorly made clothing from overseas sweatshops which are not durable at all. And the price of textiles makes sewing as expensive or more so than buying things off-the-rack.
But it is truly for these reasons I do not judge people by their clothing: Fashion is vanity and I know that only the richest of us even get a choice in matters like our clothing. Many people are forced to shop at second hand stores and yard sales or must wear hand-me-downs and patched clothing.
While I much prefer women in traditional dress and hairstyles with little if any make-up and without strange piercings and without any tattoos it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference if a women is dressed one way or another since the modern attitude is still feminist and it is that which I am rejecting entirely when I reject modern women.
A different disguise or costume does not a character make, but rather it is the actions of the characters that define their role in a play. Character is key and so this masquerade between men and women must come to an end for we MGTOWs know what lies beneath and it is nothing desirable.
Traditional accouterments are just another way of deceiving a man so that he thinks he will be getting a traditional woman, but there is still just as high a likelihood with a woman dressed one way as another that he will be divorced in ten years owing support money to a wife he is no longer allowed to have sex with and children he is not allowed to raise. If he is wealthy the same chances remain that he will still be forced to pay two entirely separate set of bills for two households or if he is not wealthy he likely end up homeless and/or imprisoned being unable to pay what is demanded (blood from a turnip) and yet he will be without any of the comforts or benefits and without that respect due him as lord being denied those things by the monstrosity that is a modern woman, who knowing she has sinned, does everything she can to make her ex-husband’s life hell until he kills himself.
If a woman wants to be traditional she must demonstrate and perpetuate continual submission to her husband whether she be clothed or naked and whether she be in poverty so severe that she can not choose her clothing or whether she be clothed in the finest array. Does clothing demonstrate this? Not in the least. For the clothing still remains her choice.
Despite women expressing a desire to live a traditional-life I see nothing so far which suggests to me modern women are changing into traditional women. They are just changing clothes, which like their minds they claim they can change as often as they want as part of their prerogative, and that gives MGTOWs no more soundness of mind nor any greater assurances that a marriage in the present cultural environment and political climate will be any more successful than those they had before regardless of how the women in that environment dress.
I Peter 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
I Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
I Corinthians 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
Poem by Geoffrey Chaucer Circa 1370 A.D.
Against Women Unconstant
Madame, for youre newefangelnesse,
Many a servant have ye put out of grace.
I take my leve of your unstedefastnesse,
For wel I woot, whil ye hav lives space,
Ye can not love ful half yeer in a place,
To newe thing youre lust is ay so keene;
In stede of blew, thus may ye were al greene.
Right as a mirour nothing may enpresse,
But, lightly as it cometh, so mote it pace,
So fareth youre love, youre werkes bereth witnesse,
Ther is no faith that may your herte enbrace;
But, as a wedercok, that turneth his face
With every wind, ye fare, and this is seene;
In stede of blew, thus may ye were al greene.
Ye might be shrinèd for youre brothelnesse,
Bet that Dalida, Criseide, or Candace;
For ever in chaunging stant youre sikernesse;
That tache may no wight fro your herte arace.
If ye lese oon, ye can wel twain purchace;
l light for somer, ye woot wel what I mene,
In stede of blew, thus may ye were al greene.
