Popular TV Remodeling Couple Pilloried for the Sin of Having 5 Children January 19, 2018

This is the upside down, inside out, black is white world we live in, shaped by dystopian leftist views and mores for decades now.  Just a few decades ago, having a large family was seen at least as a neutral thing, and generally was viewed positively, as a sign of blessing.  Certainly, there have been misanthropes for decades, often liberal protestant types, who in the 20th century coalesced around the suffrage movement and radical social theories (like eugenics) to first start to push the notion that people = bad.  But at the time, those people were generally extremist nuts.  Nowadays, the default view by the typically childless “elites” is that children = bad, a drag, an endless source of carbon emissions, while they happily plan on collecting the Social Security checks and other benefits the children of others, the children they could never be bothered to have, will provide.

It’s a sick, sick, sick, sick world:

Fans of “Fixer Upper” no doubt have heard that stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced they’re having a fifth child.  Feminist commentator Kristen Pyszczyk does not approve.

“Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision. So when people do irresponsible things like having five children, we absolutely need to be calling them out.” [Actually, low birth rates are leading to massive social disruption and economic decline.  Japan’s economy has been in a zero growth recession for exactly as long as its birth rate has been less than replacement rate.  Europe is being remade due to the necessity of having to import millions of largely muslim immigrants to replace the babies they never had.  And the US would be experiencing a population decline, due to our lower-than-replacement native-born birth rate, and much of the poor economic performance of the last 45 years can be attributed to lack of population growth.  All the bases upon which the population explosion belief are grounded are utterly false.  But it’s a religious conviction with these people, so no amount of logic matters.]

While having a child or five is a very personal choice, it’s also a choice that affects everyone who inhabits our planet. So while many people might find the backlash unwarranted, it’s actually a conversation we need to have in order to challenge our uncritical acceptance of the life-fulfillment-through-procreation story. [That’s a massive assumption – that this well known couple has a larger than average number of kids out of some selfish desire for personal fulfillment. There are surely numerous reasons why they have 5 kids, but knowing their (protestant) Christian convictions, obeying God’s call to be fruitful and multiply is probably foremost.  Notice that feminists are all about “choice” when it comes to killing babies, but not when having them.  Reveal much?]

Now, as a feminist, I tend to oppose any cultural conversation that involves telling a woman what to do with her body. But women have long been told that they need to have kids to have a meaningful life, and they are groomed for motherhood from a very early age. [So let me make a totally unsupported assumption about you, Joanna Gaines – I imagine, transplanting the feminist critic’s selfish outlook into this unwitting recipient – and then launch on a rant, which just happens to perfectly correspond to my already held convictions, about how having lots of kids in order to “fulfill oneself” is horribly, horribly selfish.  And yet, which type is more in the solipsistic “Eat, Pray, Love” crowd – feminists, or devout Christians?”]

But we don’t often hear arguments for alternatives to motherhood. Women need to be presented with options for a fulfilling life that don’t involve taking 20 years of their lives to care for offspring. Changing the narrative around motherhood should help to offset some of the cultural conditioning we receive throughout our lives. [The eternal selfishness of the feminist mind is on stark display here.  There is more than a slight whiff of “doth protest too much” in this tawdry critique.   Unhappy with your life choices?  Find being used as a receptacle by unworthy men a bit more empty than empowering?  Taking it out on someone else may make you feel better for a few minutes, but cats are no substitute for children and grandchildren.]

Note the paradox – not having children is the key to humanity’s survival.  What she means is, “I demand the power, for myself and fellow travelers, to decide for others how many children they are allowed to have, at what time, and under what circumstances.  You see, like the endlessly evil and personally immoral Margaret Sanger, I believe only the right kind of people should be allowed to have children. Holding this view is a testament to my immense virtue and a sure signal of how much better I am than you, the grunting, rutting hoi polloi.”

Thus, our self-anointed “elites.”

Congratulations to the Gaines on their expectant arrival.

Wonder what the feminist looks like. Probably a dyke that no man would want to procreate with.

c matt - January 19, 2018

To be fair, she is not unattractive physically. But with an attitude like that, I do not see a stable long-term relationship in her future. I have my doubts that her real name is Pyszczyk – it is too phonetically close to “Pissed Chick” to be an accident.

Sorry to hijack the conversation, but there is a rosary rally happening on February 2nd, a double feast.



I’m trying to get Fr. Longua to observe this. It is coming up very soon.

The Gaines family is hated by the left because they are faithful, successful, love kids and put their family ahead of their fame. I’ve followed them since they began, and am certain pressure was coming from the sodomite bullies to have sodomite clients… they were wise to end it now – very wise.

Camper - January 19, 2018

Is their show over? I hope they didn’t end it over some faggots bullying them. That would be a tragedy. Maybe the producer did.

Baseballmom - January 19, 2018

They made the decision to put family first and end it after this season. I’m certain, having seen what HGTV did to other Christians, that pressure was on to have sodomite clients. But, because their show was a huge hit and had incredible ratings, the Gaines family was in the driver’s seat. But, had they continued, it could have gotten ugly.

As they say, Leftists ruin everything.

“Feminists are all about ‘choice’ when it comes to killing babies, but not when having them”. You nailed it there, Tantum. That really does sum up feminists, and our sick culture in general. May God soon chastise this perverted society.

Tim - January 19, 2018

They love “choice” and “tolerance” as long as you agree with them. Chastisement? We’ve got a good start with Francis being allowed on the Throne of Peter!

It was the Jews that imposed feminism on our Western culture, they even admit it.

About the Hollywood agenda, I am old enough to remember two actresses that left lucrative parts on two popular shows from the 1980s:

Cynthia Sikes left “St. Elsewhere ”
Michele Greene left “LA Law”

Both left because writers wanted to turn their characters into lesbians. I also read that Susan Howard left “Dallas ” circa 1986 because writers wanted her character to have an affair with J.R.

Glad these three actresses stuck yo their personal beliefs – good role model for women and men.

So, let me get this straight – Joanna Gaines, who has a wildly successful TV show, a magazine, a real estate empire, owns one of the hot spots in a college town (The Silos), is a top notch decorator, has a furniture/home furnishings line, is only having a fifth kid because she has been brainwashed into thinking there is no alternative to motherhood?

First of all Pzyckykkcyc – can I buy a vowel? Second, do you even listen to how stupid you sound?

And yes – wonderful congrats to Chip and Joe – may their fifth be as beautiful as the previous four.

Now THAT was funny!!!! But i think we need to buy at least TWO vowels 😀👍🏻

Baeballmom - January 19, 2018

Hmmmm…. don’t know why the family name showed up…. oh well, we are west coast… no relation to Paul… 😉

6. c matt - January 19, 2018

Oh yeah, forgot also has a bed and breakfast, because you know, no alternatives.

Recently I had a conversation with my mom and explained to her how it was worth having 4 kids.

One regret married couples between 55 and 80 are saying today (particularly if they married during the 70s and 80s, regardless of religious beliefs) is they wish they had more children. Why? Not too many people come to visit a nursing home, kids don’t stop by enough to check on them or to help them out.

My grandmother had nine live births (8 lived to reach adulthood) and an aunt and uncle reside with her in her last years . That was beneficial, and my other aunts and uncles were very helpful too.

Tantumblogo - January 24, 2018

Beautiful comment. Thank you. Was your mom doubting the worth of having 4 kids? Her kids, or yours? Really none of my business, so I understand if you do not want to elaborate.

David - January 24, 2018


Actually, much mother was talking about some of her friends needing more help as they approach 70+. Many do not have a son or daughter to assist. Since my parents had 4 children, they will have a little more help.
