Addendum: I also wish now, to open the blog to more conservative topics in general, not just women’s issues within conservatism, although that will still be a big focus. Also, want to note that many of my followers are conservatives of faith, and they are more than welcome in my community here on my blog as we share many common values. More broadly, I am a lady who identifies as socially conservative from a secular perspective, and wants to engage fellow conservatives in the “silent majority” to uphold common sense and reason.

A Lady of Reason is a blog for women who are in the secular community but have socially conservative values. This might seem like a contradiction to some, as many who do hold more conservative views tend to do so from a religious standpoint. However, here at A Lady of Reason, we believe that beliefs in conservative values do not need religion to be justified.

Just what are these “conservative values” A Lady of Reason ascribes to? They are values often forgotten in the modern liberal feminist movement. Values such as modesty, elegance and feminine grace. In light of today’s political climate in regards to women, more radical strains of feminism and liberalism are influencing women and girls in our society. These strains shun traditional expressions of femininity, instead urging women to be more like men, and promoting indecency instead of modesty, vulgarity instead of ladylike grace and elegance. This is also why I deliberately chose the word “Lady” instead of “Woman”. Any female human is a woman, by definition, but it takes more effort to be defined as a “lady”. The word “lady” carries with it, a connotation of the lost elegance, modest and grace found in many women of today’s society. In a social and political climate fostering a contempt for lady-like behavior and promoting destructive traits such as promiscuity, vulgarity, indecency, and even a contempt for the other sex, (i.e. men…) The community I hope to foster on this blog is a “safe space” to use the term the liberals use, for women who agree that modern day feminism has gone too far and promoted more detrimental values than good for women, but do so from a non-religious platform.

Lastly, I wish to state that unlike many of our religious counterparts, I believe that women can occupy roles outside that of a stay at home wife and mother. Also, that traditional femininity does not mean that women cannot be deeply intellectual and openly speak their mind. This blog will engage in deep intellectual topics, as well as the more “feminine” interests such as fashion, for example. It seems inherently sexist to say that traits such as reason, intellect and an analytical mind are owned by the male sex. Also, I believe that women and men are inherently separate in nature, but equal in worth and dignity as human beings. Women can occupy more “modern” roles and have fulfilling careers, I myself have a strong passion for science, and be an intellectual equal to a man. The difference between A Lady of Reason and the radical liberal feminist women who purport to desire the same things is that to be a lady, one must also value and embrace feminine grace and behavior suiting a lady. We are a “silent majority” of women who don’t buy into the liberal feminist hype, but are not religious conservatives.

  1. Thank you for your voice of reason! We out in “reality ” are happy for it. I need proof of one person’s claim of reality to make an honest decision. Your clear description & explanation of the leftists thought patterns is necessary

  2. I love and respect your expression and rationale. Being conservative doesn’t always tag along with the coat tails of Christianity, altho, myself I am both Christian and conservative; but not a far-right conservative. I know plenty of Christians who lay claim to the faith that are quite left of center as well!
    I will never understand the aspects of “feminism,” that confuse being equal to men to being LIKE men. What an oxymoron that is! lol!

  3. Wow, read your blog here. I hope that it helps open eyes, even if just a few. Very well written! I’m an ex yellow-dog union democrat that walked away. I was a useful idiot until I educated myself. Thank you!

  4. We’re going through a critical time for Men and masculinity. Young men are clueless how to handle life, relationship, responsibility and authority. Men have subconscious understanding of these in their mental firmware but upbringing is the issue. It’s a pleasure to see some women who actually want to see where the problem lies. I’m not into ‘fixing’ women, I’m into fixing the upbringing of men. Blogs like A Lady of Reason could be a good place for mothers/women who are raising young boys/seeing them raised, to make sure their sons/those boys ” ‘just’ get it.”

  6. I’m not American so I wouldn’t dream of commenting on your political battles and stances. We have enough internal, destructive, political battles of our own.
    I entirely agree about femininity and ladies powerful Minds, and their/our awareness of self.

  7. I appreciate your thoughtful writing. I’m a long-time classic liberal, yet raised on conservative Christian values. Although I have largely lived a longs lascivious life, I have of late, come to believe that most of what I’ve espoused has been a load of humanistic horse shit (excuse me). For reasons you’ve stated, I’ve felt less forthcoming than I normally might. People are waking up though and I am inspired to press on thanks to smart thinkers like you. Cheers
