Moderation in All Things

By Candace Salima, Senior Contributor at US Daily  Review

I had a long conversation with my sister today. She regaled me with the insanity pervasive with radical feminists, and it was so revolting I nearly couldn’t eat the lunch we were enjoying together. They seemed to be obsessed with all things vagina . . . and I will say nothing more on the matter. It used to be that feminism was about equal pay for equal work. It was about women being treated well instead of as chattels or second-class citizens. It was about the right to vote and women understanding that they need to be all that God intended them to be. It WAS NOT about being revolting, gross and treating men as second-class citizens. Women should not be elevated above men and men should not be elevated above women. God always intended us to work as equal partners and value each other as such. As to feminists, all I can say to you is to learn a little phrase that goes something like: “Moderation in all things.”

Radical liberals are just as bad as radical libertarians. Radical anything is bad. Liberals want total government control and no freedom for anyone to choose anything. Radical libertarians want no laws at all, total anarchy. Neither option is wise, and in actuality are bone stupid. Communism is another word for total government control and there isn’t a single nation who has implemented communism whose people haven’t suffered horribly. On the other hand, total anarchy is something only nitwits want. The fact the certain factions in America are calling for it proves they have no idea what a total lack of laws would produce. Again, “moderation in all things” would come in handy with both of these. The U.S. Constitution and it’s republic form of government provides that moderation.

Fifty Shades of Grey is a trilogy about an extremely dangerous man who indulges in stalking, controlling, and dominating. Christian Grey is no ideal, but a monster who uses his money and abusive nature to corrupt innocence and destroy a young girl’s life. He should be no woman’s fantasy man because these books take an horribly abusive relationship and somehow made it palatable to the mainstream. It is horrifying that we are training an entire generation to believe this abusive behavior is the norm and it is a travesty. Read this entire blog post and realize that you’ve been led down a dark and thorny path to an extremely corrupt and dangerous relationship being normalized, and have allowed yourselves to be horribly deceived if you believe the likes of Christian Grey is anyone’s dream man. Even the actors playing the lead roles were horrified and believe the movie to be terrible. There’s no moderation in this, just turn around and run. Violence is never the answer in a relationship.

Moderation in all things is about not going to one extreme side or the other. It’s about being wise and exerting common sense. It’s about realizing what is really good for you as opposed to what is popular. It’s about understanding that life is meant for you to triumph over, not get trampled under foot by. Find balance in life and seriously, if vagina yogurt starts sounding like a good idea you’ve gone off the deep end and there is no pulling you back. I beg of you, exert common sense and stay away from the dark side of insanity.
