LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2014 – If you remember, Eliza Doolittle wanted to learn ‘ow to walk en talk like a real lady, she did.’ She was convinced that if she had nice clothes and spoke properly that opportunities would open up for her.
In the movie, what she learns is that to be a lady requires something deeper than learning how to walk and talk a certain way. She learned it takes more than the ability to wear beautiful clothes, makeup or hair. To be a ‘real lady’ means to have virtue and that is something she teaches the teacher in the end.
My daughter’s maid of honor has been her best friend since elementary school and she is now a grown and beautiful woman. She accomplished her master’s degree, dressed well and spoke well.
And she was single.
She had had many boyfriends over the years and slept with most of them. And she was still single. Single and very sad that none of the relationships seemed to work.
She had begun seeking counseling to figure out what was wrong with her.
My heart sank as I realized this beautiful young lady had bought into the idea of being a liberated and empowered woman, which actually meant she had become a POWL, a prisoner of the war on ladies.
Perhaps the motives behind women who demonize ladies goes deeper than an ego trip, I think there is a monetary benefit in turning ladies into mere women.
For example, those that buy into the lie that they are somehow liberated by having sex with anyone they want, are being funneled into the halls of planned parenthood and sold products and services under the guise of concern for women’s health.
Then there are those who mentally crumble after being sexually used, and they end up lining the pockets of secular counselors. Not to mention the thousands of women who gave up their ladyship that fill the cells of prisons and jails.
Female comedians get into the act by betraying their own sex to line their pockets making fun of ladies. Young girls unaware of this ancient war stand in line to buy tickets to shows that demean them.
And then there are the ones closest to us. These are the ones that we work with who perceive kindness extended by ladies as weakness and test them more than they test others. Once the ranks are thinned, organized and labeled those that are no longer ladies are now women that can join the feminist machine, achieving a pitiful power made through bitterness or monogamy to one male whom they do not respect, but need.
You see the war on women is nothing new. It has really been waged by women against ladies for centuries.
The story of Snow White resonates with us precisely because it is strangely familiar. A jealous witch of a woman uses beauty as a tool to entrap; she offers the young lady princess a perfect apple.
The beautiful apple is used to conceal the poison hidden deep inside, intended to kill Snow White, thereby eliminating the witch’s competition. The only protection the princess has is that she is virtuous and in the end it is that goodness that saves her.
To walk and talk like a real lady requires prayer and strength gathered from God as we do battle every day as ladies.
Today the very epicenter of the fight is female and takes many form including overreaching welfare programs that create a lethargic populace, the terminaton millions of innocent unborn babies that deaden a society to the preciousness of human life, the undermining of our Constitution and its Judeo-Christian roots.
There is some comforting news regarding ladies. First in all my years in law enforcement I never arrested a lady. Second, ladies are classy, they not only know how to walk and talk but they have better posture and have an extremely high emotional I.Q.
Ladies understand that life is difficult and that there will always be more difficult people to contend with before they leave this earth. When dealing with difficult people they are proactive, they understand that although difficult people can be a pain in the rear, they welcome the challenge.
They are in control of their emotions in order to continue to accomplish their goals. Finally, ladies know when to cut their losses and get away from bad work, professionals or a personal relationship before it grows like a cancer out of control.
In the end of the movie Eliza Doolittle realizes in her innocent ignorance, she has allowed herself to be used and although Mr. Higgins has taken advantage of her and treated her poorly, she takes the moral high ground and remains a lady, giving back what is materially not hers and leaves, with the grace and style of a true lady. Take heart, be strong, be chaste, stay moral and most of all remain a lady. They hate that!
