The young woman pictured above is Madison, otherwise known as @thereservedwife. I came across a video she did on Tik Tok and it was awesome! She talked about how she just loves to do all the cooking and cleaning in her home. She also talked about how feminists by the hundreds come on her videos telling her how she is “wasting her life” and “setting women back decades”. And I love how at the end of the video she tells her feminist detractors that she was engaged at 18, married at 19, pregnant at 20 and gave birth to her first child at 21. And then to really stick it to her feminist detractors, she adds that she is pregnant with her second child and barefoot in the kitchen.
I also looked up another video where she talked about her background a bit and she mentioned that she did not go to college, had no plans to go to college, because it would have saddled her future husband with debt and would have been a waste of time because she would not be using it as a stay-at-home mom.
In many ways this woman sounds just like my 19 year old daughter who just graduated from high school. I showed her Madison’s video and she was very encouraged and blessed by it as she has been by so many other young Christian SAHMs who are now taking a stand for God in this way.
SAHMs like Madison are a grave threat to feminism. Why? Not just because she is a SAHM, but because she is SAHM by conviction. She was not forced to be a SAHM, she chose the life and actually promotes the lifestyle to other women. Not only is she an SAHM, but she also believes patriarchy is good thing.
Feminists can easily dismiss men teaching about the need for women to return to their traditional place in the home as a “self-serving” exercise. But they cannot dismiss the myriads of young women who are now choosing the SAHM lifestyle and those who have very happy and fulfilling lives as a result. And that is why godly women like Madison who are Bible believing SAHMs and support patriarchy are such a threat to our post feminist culture.
