Dear Hillary

Alright, that’s it.

I’m doing it.

The time has come.

I’m taking on …

the pantsuit.

dlGtWst

Womp. Womp. Sorry if that was a let down.

But in light of the recent political conventions, I have finally worked up the courage to talk about something that I have wanted to “tackle” for a long time.

The Pantsuit.

Or rather, what it stands for.

Now, some people may have watched the conventions and gotten all hot and bothered about the political “superheroes” in attendance. The brilliant/moving/potentially lifted speeches. The cause-for-concern weight of former presidents and their affinity for oversized balloons.


But I was focused on one thing: The Pantsuit.

Now, I must begin with this…it was so unfortunate that both the headlining women wore white. I mean, for the love, Melania Trump is a gosh darn vision in white. Not that Hillz wasn’t beautiful in her own right, but her stylist should have realized that she was wearing the same color as a former super model. And a pantsuit at that. It was a tragic oversight.


But I’m going to be really honest. I have some pretty strong feelings about pantsuits.

And pause: I’m not advocating that women should only wear ankle length skirts with closed toed flats. I mean, heaven forbid you show that calf!

No. That’s not what I’m talking about. #LoveMeSomeExpressEditorPants

I’m talking about what it stands for.

Or rather, how it has redefined something that I think is very important:

Femininity.

It’s such a hot button word: Feminist.

When people hear that word, – and I’m including myself in this – the image of angry, hairy arm-pitted women burning bras in a politically charged mob comes to mind. I mean, doesn’t it?

toronto-bra-burning_19792

And especially now, with people and shows like Lena Dunham’s Girls or Broad City, there’s been a redefinition and rebirth of intensity in what it means to be a feminist. And more specifically, what it means if you’re not a feminist.

And everyone has their two cents worth…or rather, their 140-characters worth on Twitter. Or, in Kim Kardashian’s case, your “two black censorship bars“-worth.

Everyone from Taylor Swift, to Shonda Rhimes, to Demi Lovato, to Beyonce, to … Hillary. Everyone chimes in on what it means to be a feminist.

So, I thought I would offer one more voice on the topic.

Because I am also a feminist. But not for the reasons that women fought for the pantsuit.

I am a feminist for two words:

Feminine Genius.

Now, if you’ve never heard that term before, you might be scratching your head…like…okay, we get it, you think you’re smart. 

fee17c90-1122-0133-5082-0ec273752cbd

Nope.

This term was coined by the late and great Pope John Paul II, or JP2 as he’s so lovingly referred.

And it defines what it means to be feminine in a biblical sense.

He defined the FG as this: the sincere gift of self.

And the very biological make up of a woman’s body communicates this.

We’ve all heard that women are the “crown of creation,” being created from man, saving the best for last. Made in the image of God, therefore reflecting His beauty. Duh.

But the feminine genius defines the very special and important role that women possess – nay, what they embody. The power and mystique we have, simply due to our very nature.

The female make up – it is different and important and powerful. We are receptors and guardians of life. We are biologically designed to bring life into the world. Every cell in our bodies is designed for that purpose. Biology don’t lie, people.

We are feelers, and in tune to those around us. Whether we are mothers in an actual physical sense or in a spiritual sense, we have the “wiring” to be caretakers. We yearn to meet the needs of others. We are lovers. We are people-centered — relational. Why do you think we care so much about The Bachelorette, or struggle with gossip? – It is because we care about people and their well being.

We are courageous and strong. Look at Mary – saying “yes”to carry Jesus in her womb. That was the prime example of the sincere gift of self. She was being obedient to God’s will, yet exercising her own free will, and giving of her own self- physically, emotionally and spiritually.


Am I saying that men don’t possess these traits? Absolutely not. Men are lovers, and feelers and courageous too. But differently.

Women have traits that are uniquely different. Uniquely important. Uniquely genius.

So does this mean that the role of a woman is in the kitchen meeting the needs of her family by making casseroles, popping out babies, changing bed linens and vacuuming the house in pearls and heels?

housewives-cleaning-family

No way, Jose.

It can, if that’s her calling. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

But that’s the genius aspect. A woman brings those traits with her and puts her unique feminine qualities into whatever she does. Whether that’s teaching, or nursing, or raising a family, or reaching people through marketing/advertising, or acting, or…leading a country.

It is those traits – of giving, empathy, courage, intuition, compassion, strength, poise, recognizing the talents in those around her and empowering others – those are precisely the qualities that make up a great leader. And a woman possesses them inherently.

We are uniquely different. And differently equal.

So. Back to the pantsuit.

Instead of trying to conform to what makes a man a man, why not celebrate the fact that, yes, I am a woman, and because of that, I bring unique qualities and talents and perspectives to the job, that make me equally and uniquely qualified to do it.

Leading a country means serving a country. It is a gift of self. Of inspiring and empowering the people.

A position that should be held by the most capable person for the job – man or woman.

Am I endorsing Hillary. No. There’s a lot more that goes into choosing a President that goes much deeper than a person’s gender. There’s … well … politics. The parties’ views on the US and our future are very different. And that is up to you to decide which issues top the list and sway your vote.

I would love to see a woman President. And think it is amazing that a woman is holding the nomination for a major party.

And I hope that the first woman president, whenever she’s elected, can confidently be sworn in wearing something other than a pantsuit. Because she’s not hiding her femininity, but celebrating her feminine genius, and embracing all the unique talents and qualities that she possesses in her very nature that make her equally qualified and able to do the job.

  1. Why is this the first time I have heard of “Feminine Genius?” It’s the very term for the thing I could never put my finger on: the thing of both power and grace, of spirit, emotions, intelligence, and body, that is the glory of womanhood that is God-designed! Gak! Eureka! Thank you for the term!
    Pantsuits are hilarious, and make for a great, catchy piece. But, if you haven’t already, I would love to hear more of your thoughts expounding upon Feminine Genius. This fills a huge gap in the conversation between angry feminists and tea-time church ladies. Both of whom I get!

  2. I remember when the Daily Californian (the UC Berkeley student newspaper) ran a swimsuit photo of the first woman to run the country (Nancy Reagan, natch). The caption criticized her “bat wings” (sagging upper arms).

    I’m glad that Hillary continues to nurture, regardless of her garb. She was cute as a button when she entered public office. As she explained upon leaving the State Department to rest up for her presidential bid: “Twenty years of sleep deprivation takes its toll.”

    And poor Bill. It seems that he’s experiencing his second childhood. I wonder if Hillary is serious about letting him run the economy.

  3. Regarding the “Feminine Genius”: I feel in love with it in middle school watching church gatherings. The men stood up front blabbing away, sounding important, and the women went around in the background and just got things done.

    The masculine genius has its place – principally when things have got to change. Unfortunately, having them in charge for so long has created a culture of “change for change’s sake” that (given that it’s far easier to change something by breaking it than it is to create something better) is generating a need for triage on a global scale. Maybe we’ll learn to listen to that “still quiet voice” which is a woman’s whispered counsel: “Not yet, dear.”

    1. This, I think, is why my mother never wore dresses if she could help it (8 kids, you see. In her words, her legs looked ‘…like a roadmap in crazy-town’!) Even as mother of the bride/groom, her hemline brushed the floor when she walked, so as to not risk an updraft exposing her legs. She LOVED her pant suit and slacks.
      Back in the day, her detractors gave Hillary a lot of flack about the shape of her ankles, as if that’s the measure of a woman. I see her as a comfortable and confident woman, mother, and grandmother. More power to her (and soon!) 😉

We offer a side to humanity that men typically cannot understand. The difference is a beautiful thing!

  7. That picture of Bill Clinton with the giant balloon cracks me up. He has such a “ooo wow look at the pretty ballooooon” look on his face. 😆

    And, by the way, thank you so much for pointing this out: “There’s a lot more that goes into choosing a President that goes much deeper than a person’s gender. There’s … well … politics.” I firmly believe that if a woman becomes President, it should be because of her policies and what she stands for, not just because she happens to be a woman running for the presidency. I mean, we wouldn’t vote a man into office just because he’s a man. It should be the same way for a woman.

    Seriously, the topic of being differently gifted is one that needs a lot more discussion, especially with respect to gender traditionalism. But I won’t be surprised to see it show up again in your writing.

    And yet…I wonder if you are delaying the posting of a picture (smile).

  9. Thank you for sharing this post and writing about “feminine genius”. I am not overly informed or interested in politics, so I’ll put that aside for now, but thank you for sharing to the world about being a true female and daughter of God, and how a man and woman are uniquely different in their own special, God-given ways – which is personally why I can’t stand all this talk about equality/feminism. God created man and woman in His own perfect image, but He didn’t create them to be exactly the same. We are all humans, but men have qualities different to women and vice versa. God knows what He’s doing and we should leave it at that! 🙂

  11. This is very thought provoking. Not saying I entirely agree nor disagree. I believe there is a feminine mystique that, yeah, is uniquely woman. A biologist friend once told me that it has to do with giving off certain chemicals or something. Can’t remember exactly. But not all women feel that way.

    As for men, well yeah, there is a male thing too. But not all men feel that way.

    The Bible was written in ancient times when these type of things were not questioned so much, if at all. To take it too literally might be a mistake imo. And doing so might hurt some people. But to ignore the feminine mystique as if it’s just a fable, that’s not right either. I go back and forth on this issue, to be honest. I just want the truth, as Lennon would have said…

  12. I found myself laughing so hard randomly when i heard the word pant suits. Hillary indeed wants to wear pant suits because that’s what all the past presidents wore and she doesn’t want to disappoint. Though I feel she’s trying too hard to make the image that she’s a manly woman I feel. I’m actually scared she’s going to not step down when something like WW3 happens so that she won’t disappoint her manly audience, Though I also don’t think she’s in control – people are nervous of putting her in the position of president because well — she relies more on other people to get things done then see through to it herself and think for herself. I don’t like either of them; Trump or Hilary, both are terrible. If you guys need a break from USA politics we always have lots of space, cuddly animals and mountains just north of you in Canada!! =)

An homage to all who have worked tirelessly for equal opportunities for women–and that our children finally can see the day that an smart, intelligent, savvy human being is at the top of the major party ticket for the US presidential race–and happens to be a woman.

    I don’t care what the hell any of our presidential candidates are wearing. I know you meant to be funny, but it’s such a double standard to criticize/review what women running for office are WEARING rather than their merits/qualifications or not for the job.

Because you’re right-a candidate’s fashion- Nay, a person’s fashion- doesn’t matter-it’s the person in the clothes that counts.

  15. I like the post, but don’t see the pant suit as denying femininity. It does show one of the norms that need to be broken and should be slowly worked on if she is able to complete this task. The idea that only men are proficient in business or superior in thinking. As a father of 5 girls, I do not want the idea of them wearing a skirt or a hairstyle to be a hindrance too their achievement. I also don’t want their skin color to close doors either. Hillary, from the last race, remembers the damage caused to her campaign by simply crying. Of all things!!!! With so many male voters, she understand this and should consider it lesson learned, thus, I suspect we will see pants suits through the election and probably 2 years into her presidency (if achieved) depending on how things are shaping up for a possible 2nd term. This will be interesting to watch and to experience.

  16. I get what you’re saying, but there are many legitimate reasons for a presidential candidate to wear a pantsuit instead of whatever else you’re proposing. I can only assume that you’re talking about dresses or blouses/skirts; I apologize if that isn’t what you mean. I can’t get in depth right now but it seems to me as if much of women’s clothing was designed to appeal to men’s sexuality rather than empower women so it would be greatly inappropriate to wear it if you were trying to lead a country (or honestly even a business).

    Still love reading your point of view, this is just mine. Maybe we can learn from one another.

I know a woman who only wears skirts because she just can’t stand pants. It’s nothing to do with her image of being feminine and projecting ‘woman’, she just doesn’t like the constricting nature of pants.

    I do wish the world could move beyond her clothes, or hair, or her appearance in general. It has nothing to do with her politics, or her abilities to govern a country. We could say don’t judge the book by the cover, but we all do it.

    Even as a little girl, we see baby girl Hillary in a darling dress…with something white, like Quaker qualities draped over each shoulder…almost comical. In teenish years we found Hillary molding her personality with sweaters, all turtle-neck and unfashionable clothing. She was the typical, plain Jane, immersing her body in totally unattractive demure. She was the Unshaven armpits and legs of Jewish revolutionary movements and while it was believed that BILL was the Brains, aaand, he was brrrilliant!
    It was her somber and silent nods that sent ” juju eyeballs” ( intellectual Hippies) scanning John Lennon lyrics and Hillary’s sacred nod, looking for causes. Her dressing, with lots of Mao and Lennon’s. Baby Grand Piano. You had a movement.

What a candidate “wears” should never be a distraction from the truth; that’s just my opinion. And sadly, there are many times when (some) candidates would love us to focus on fashion, whether they are wearing something classic or odd or out of the ordinary, I say, let us focus on what is real, what is true, and what is the best vote for our country”.

    2. Women and men have different gifts and a healthy society needs all of those gifts, the feminine genius as well as the masculine genius. A bird can only fly with both wings. But at the moment can we see a de-valuing of maleness and feminity (or a peversion of its true original meaning) and some postmodern ideologists consider gender differences as insignificant and meaningless. They believe that there are no male and female gifts at all, with the consequence that some women became in many ways manlike or some mans real sissys (sorry, but that’s the truth)

      I suppose, this is one of the main reasons for the breakdown of marriages, divorces and the disruption of whole familys. The attraction between the sexes (physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual…) lives from the polarity and the revelation of love, that we can experience only through the shared intimacy and the mutual enjoyment of the male and the female. If we deny the maleness of man and the feminity of women, we deny the gravitational pull of love between them.. and „man cannot live without love…. His life is senseless if love is not revealed to him, if he does not encounter love, if he does not experience it and make it his own, if he does not participate intimately in it.“ (John Paul II, Redemptor Hominis)
      I support the full and equal participation of women in all spheres of life, for it is the foundation of human development, but as a man I enjoy, love and celebrate the beauty of the feminine to much, to deny its uniqueness. It is my duty to protect it 🙂

      1. You have a duty to protect feminine uniqueness? Oh dear, Don Juan!

        Anyway, I’ll ignore that. You have an interesting viewpoint overall – I understand it’s actually quite a religious one. May I ask – have you seen the Ascent of Woman documentary on BBC/Netflix? I really encourage you to watch this. It talks about how women have been oppressed across time, across the globe, mostly because of ideological practice (which were mostly male-controlled). Ie. in China, Confucianism preached Yin and Yang, (yin, the moon, female/yang, the sun, male) where men and woman played roles in harmony and for various reasons (possibly because the sun is superior to the moon) it ended up that men still controlled women.

        I’m just conscious that over the last 4000 years of civilisation, women’s rights and value as an equal human being have gone up and down (but mainly down), because of the practice of men and religion/ideology. Whereas before this, it is believed that women and men lived in an egalitarian society where gender roles never existed (apart from the obvious biological ones)! People are so afraid of women being equal to men, but what they should be afraid of is religion and government enforcing ideologies on us all – like the one you are promoting.

        Marriage (as you speak of) should not be a Duty, or where roles are assigned. It should be done out of love, and working together to share the load. Love doesn’t oppress a gender based on what they choose to do with their lives.

      2. „You have a duty to protect feminine uniqueness? Oh dear, Don Juan!“

        Yes, God has designed me this way 😉 I would give my life for my wife, if I must protect her (that’s part of the male genius) But I don’t desire to be like Don Juan. I only desire to be Christ-Like.

        „It talks about how women have been oppressed across time, across the globe, mostly because of ideological practice (which were mostly male-controlled)“

        That’s right. But the Spirit of Oppression goes clearly against the Spirit of Christ. Man and women are both created in the image and likeness of god (this is the christian viewpoint). In other words: man and women are already equal in the eyes of god, with no distinction in their spiritual station, they have the same potential for intelligence and virtue. I belief that we need a balance between the male and the female forces/qualities/geniuses in this world.

        Man and women are like the two wings of one and the same bird of humanity, „wholly complementary, yet each sex uniquely and mysteriusly bearing God’s image – the imago Dei. Humans bear the image and likeness of God as male and female. And it is in this way, as men and women, that humanity is called to make visible the invisible Creator God on this planet.

        It is out of the diversity and distinctive separateness of male and female that we humans are called to not only reflect the image and likeness of God, but we also represent God in the stewardship of His good and wonderful creation (Genesis 1:28-29). Male and female also reflect God as they come together in unity in marriage and are joined as “one flesh” (see Genesis 2:23-24; Matthew 19: 3-6; Mark 10: 6-9; Ephesians 5:28-32). This coming together as one flesh is unique, in that the sexual union brings forth new life that will also somehow look like God and bear the imago Dei. As we are “fruitful and multiply and fill the earth,” we spread God’s image around the world (Genesis 1:28). 
        As it was from the beginning, so it is to this very day. “
