Feminist College Career Women Voting 2022

Support for secular left policies increasing among young, unmarried feminists

Young, unmarried women vote overwhelmingly for Democrat party policies: abortion, same-sex marriage, daycare, public schools, no-fault divorce, etc. Cultural dominance of radical feminism has led to surging unhappiness, singleness, infertility and mental illness for these women. Nevertheless, young, unmarried women refuse to abandon radical feminism. They are doubling down.

First, lets review this article by Amanda Prestigiacomo from Daily Wire, that talks about a recent study on women’s declining happiness.

According to a recent study from Yale University researchers, liberated, college educated women are freezing their eggs because they can’t find a man to marry and have children with before their natural childbearing years expire. In the U.K., for instance, one in five women is childless when their natural reproductive years expires, as opposed to one in ten women a mere generation prior.

So what’s to blame for this onslaught of college-educated yet terribly empty women?

The short answer is feminism.

Feminism teaches women to delay marriage for college. College is worth it if you study nursing, computer science, etc. But it’s not worth it to get a worthless non-STEM degree in grievance studies. Especially if the degree comes with secular left indoctrination, promiscuity, misandry, contempt for male leadership, and student loan debt. None of these things are attractive to men who are considering marriage.

And guess what? The marriage rate is plummeting:

Marriage Rate 2020
Marriage Rate 2020

So, how are women reacting to the failure of feminism to deliver the things that make women really happy and fulfilled, i.e. – traditional marriage, and stay at home motherhood, a big family, successful moral children? Are young, unmarried women pulling back on their support for feminism? Are they looking for marriage-ready men to lead them? Are they returning to Christianity? Are they becoming more pro-life, and more opposed to sexual anarchy? Are they voting for school choice? Are they voting for smaller government and lower taxes, so that men can afford marriage and children?

Consider this article from The Federalist, my favorite news source, written by Joy Pullmann, my favorite Federalist writer.

She writes:

NBC News recently compared several polls to find huge shifts from Democrats to Republicans in 2022 midterm voter preferences. The big exception to these shifts across many demographics was college-educated women, who in NBC’s aggregation showed even stronger support for Democrats now than ahead of the last midterm election.

“[T]he gender gap between Democrats and Republicans is actually a marriage gap,” noted columnist Mona Charen in 2014, another midterm year. “Single women vote disproportionately for Democrats and married women vote by a comfortable margin for Republicans. The decline of marriage inclines more women to vote Democrat.”

When women undertake a life plan that delays marriage, they are less attractive to marriage-minded men. Marriage-minded men want to marry early, so they have help during their struggles in school and work. They want lots of well-behaved, successful children. They want to have a legacy, especially Christian men.

When young, unmarried women vote for Democrat policies, men are faced with higher taxes, more regulation, more pressure from cancel culture, more invasion of the home by secular leftists. Men don’t get married in order to have their kids stuck into daycare and public schools. Men don’t get married to have their kids transed by anti-male teachers, doctors, lawyers and judges. Men get married to lead a home. They don’t marry women who have been indoctrinated against male leadership in the home.

Women who make themselves unattractive to marriage-minded men tend to vote for bigger government. They want to be reckless and irresponsible in their young years, then have a safety net later that makes finding a husband “optional”. Remember Barack Obama’s “Life of Julia” plan for women?

The Federalist article continues:

Beyond the obvious fact that big government functions for some single women as a husband substitute, at least financially, it’s also true that women respond more strongly than men to emotional arguments of harm and victimhood of the kind that the Democrat Party of today specializes in. Women are also on the forefront of making the leftist kind of emotional “grievance politics” arguments in both academia and the public square, as Richard Hanania and others have noted.

Men don’t marry women who decide what to believe based on feelings and peer-approval. But that’s the kind of women that society has been making in recent years. Men don’t want that. Men marry women who have solid worldviews that provide a rational grounding for moral values and moral duties.

She also notes the study I blogged about before, about high rates of mental illness among progressive white women:

Pew found in 2020 that more than half of white women who identified as political liberals had been diagnosed by a professional with a mental disorder, such as depression or anxiety.

Men don’t marry women with mental illnesses, either.

Normally, I would write a conclusion here. But her conclusion was too excellent to skip:

Women have been earning more bachelor’s degrees than men have since 1982. From 1982 to 2013, women earned 10 million more degrees than men did. Not surprisingly, women dominate even more the social science fields that incubate leftist political extremism.

It’s well-documented that most colleges now function more as political grooming and social signaling centers than centers of learning. College graduates have for some time demonstrated, on average, no intellectual development from attending college, while college attendance now does correlate with a massive increase in affiliation with the Democrat Party.

At the same time colleges have become essentially academically worthless, if not toxic, they have become saturated with women, and have increasingly marketed and reorganized themselves in feminine terms. The feminization of our culture led by this academic dominance has fueled popular and pervasive messages of cruel and unrestrained female domination of men, rather than the loving cooperation with men that marriage and family encourage.

I love when older, wiser women hold young, unmarried women accountable for their reckless, irresponsible choices. Women today have a visceral hatred for being evaluated for marriage or mentored by men. They don’t think that men with achievements have any ability to lead them. That’s why it’s wonderful when older, wise women step up and teach young, unmarried women that they are their own worst enemies. That’s what Titus 2:3-5 says, isn’t it?

Men aren’t going to solve the problem of young women’s skyrocketing unhappiness. It’s not our responsibility to save women from their own embrace of self-destructive ideologies. Young women don’t listen to men with moral convictions and solid theology. The problem will only be solved when young women choose to make better decisions.

  1. Interesting article you produced. It seems as when a woman are married, the husband guides her actions, keep her emotions in check also teaching/explaining things in a way that’s easy for her to understand.

    I agree with it’s not men responsibility to save women, but we have a extremely low supply of wise old women who can teach the younger generations. The new trend is the 30 is the new 20, which is being pushed by 30 year old women.

    I simply see this as a lost cause all the way through. God want us to be married, but there’s no way at this point to fix the problem. Which hurts men(men are not motivated now, and slowly removing ourselves from society which collapses society). And women(no one to protect them from outside forces and from themselves).

    1. Come on now, there are plenty of “wise old women.” You must have missed Elizabeth Warren’s Op-Ed about how great it would be to wipe student debt off the books. People who did the right thing and actually paid debts that THEY made? Suckers!

  2. Don’t hold your breath waiting for young women to make better decisions. It’s much easier to hop into bed with whomever you please, have unprotected sex, get an abortion, and then repeat the process.

    I suppose ‘improvement’ would be to finally keep the baby and wait for the $350 child care check from the government to arrive every month. A universal basic income—but only for those with children.

    Not that I expect much better from young men. Try and find a young man who is willing to work hard. Needle in a haystack.

    Apologies for the rant, but it is upsetting watching society circle the drain and take America down with it.

  3. In news that will not shock the regular readers of this blog, younger women of the church (defined as unmarried or married less than 10 years) are not always interested in learning how to be a better wife (or wife candidate). Odds go up if you are going to a Spanish language women’s group in my experience with memory verses out of Proverbs (11:22, 12:4, 14:1, 18:22, 25:24). I’ve never heard “As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion. [NASB]” spoken of in English, but I’ve heard it in Spanish.

    That said, I do have one younger woman that I talk to regularly who listens to and even asks for advice.

    1. Yep. If you listen to our podcast, my co-host says its extremely rare to get young women to ask for mentoring. When they are young and pretty, they seem to hold all the cards. No time for learning and growing when all the boys are chasing you. Rose talks about this in the episode we’re dropping Sunday. What did you think of episode 1?

  4. Rod Dreher has announced his wife is divorcing him, and that infidelity is not the cause.

    Also lots more about religious catharsis emotional stuff. Because really, a guy who divorces because of unhaaaappy is still a perfectly appropriate spokesman for stable marriage and the Christian religion, and emoting all over the place all the time is definitely manly and straight behavior. Same way dating columnists are always 50-year-old women who’ve never locked down a man for longer than two months at a time.

        “It pains me more than I can say to announce that my wife recently filed a petition of divorce, and I have agreed unreservedly to her request for a mutual, and amicable, parting. While this will come as a great shock to my readers, it will not surprise those who know us best. We are both exhausted from nine years of excruciating struggle to save this marriage. I can safely say that I have learned through bitter experience the truth of the saying that nobody knows what really goes on in a marriage.

        We have agreed that I won’t be talking in public about the circumstances leading up to the divorce. That would be unfair to her, because she has no platform, and cruel to our children, who remain our greatest concern. I can say (and she has approved everything in this statement) that infidelity was never, ever an issue, on either side. There is plenty of blame on both sides. We will have the rest of our lives to think about that.”

        9 years is a long time to reject knowledge because you deem it “sexist”.

        1. Truth or “unfairness.” Good to know Rod chooses politeness over truth. Even though he’s not Protestant, he sounds like he’d fit in well with my PCA church.
          If she’s a homewrecking fool, then it’s probably better he say so.
          Yes, he’s a sinner too, that’s a factual statement- it’s unbelievable how many Christians are so weak-minded that saying their sin played a role in a divorce is supposed to sound humble and kind.
          Do they realize that in 100% of the 70% of divorces initiated by women, that the men were sinners also? It’s so irrelevant, yet it’s got the Christian cultural high horse of authority at this moment.
