I am of the opinion that a women is as strong or weak as her moral character - character being a direct result of the goings on in her heart - and since what comes out of her mouth gives color to the aura of her soul, the intent of character, within a woman, is not hard to know.
I taught my daughters to walk tall, be true of character and carry a kind word...
Passion of belief is a strong motivator in all of us however, it is only when we have lived long enough to internalize true joy and pain of life's events that we are able to explain to others convincingly - without judgment or condemnation, our opinions.
When we can paint a picture without revealing our own prejudice and achieve the desired results, we have reached a useful level of communication.
Giving one's opinion should not be to hurt but to help - unless of course, passions are inflamed by injustice towards one's children or self. Self preservation and self defense has always been (and always will be) a God given instinct and law of all nature.
When women embrace a cause to further their own passions they tell the world they are "untouchable" but for that cause. I personally believe that stifles growth and keeps one in a "cause bubble", continually defending one's position and being driven by it, thus, unable to "see" another view with openness and reason.
A woman can be feminine (in the traditional sense) as no other entity on earth. It is a beautiful thing to see. However, when she dawns the agenda of feminism, sexism, machismo and socialism, she loses the pure passion that encircles her full worth.
Those women who "knows" who they are, all by themselves because they love the universe, the beauty of nature, their God and themselves, know full well they are free to love another and be loved by the same. No agenda offers that freedom. It comes from within the truly loving and feminine woman, enriched of character by life experience and maturity. Enduring the young women her hot opinion is necessary for her growth...
