Hello everyone. I’d like to announce I’ve just started a new group, the Traditional Family Activists or TFAs. Launch day was October 30, 2013. I changed various things on this site yesterday and put in a new “About” page consistent with the change in my political identity. I am no longer a TWRA, I am instead a TFA. I am very sad to leave the TWRAs, I liked being a TWRA a lot, but it is time for me to try to create something new I can put my own stamp on and call my own. The TWRAs welcomed me with open arms back when I joined them on January 27, 2013 and I am grateful for that. I do believe however that I have a unique contribution I can offer as a man to the cause of Traditional Women’s Rights and that the unique contribution The Radical One can offer as a woman needs to be separated from what I can give as a man so that our different gifts and strengths will both help the cause of Traditional Women’s Rights together in cooperation towards the common goal rather than either one of us being stifled by the need to conform to the other.
I fully support The Radical One and the TWRA group she is leading; she is advocating for Traditional Women’s Rights just like I am and that’s what’s important to me.
For those who want to learn more about what the TFAs stand for I recommend these two posts on the subject of TFA identity:
The Meaning of Being a Traditional Family Activist
(Yes, The Meaning of Being a Traditional Family Activist post is exactly the same as the original The Meaning of Being a Traditional Women’s Rights Activist post except for the name change part.)
For those interested in some of my personal thoughts about this transition go to my “About” page.
Though the TWRAs and the TFAs share common goals and have a unified overall purpose organizationally we are completely separate. The TWRAs are The Radical One’s territory and the TFAs are my territory.
The TWRAs are more feminine while the TFAs are more masculine. The TWRAs are more egalitarian while the TFAs are more hierarchical. The TWRAs are more liberal while the TFAs are more conservative. The TWRAs are more strictly secular while the TFAs are quasi-religious.
Though I am hesitant making these generalizations and what the TWRAs develop into is for The Radical One to decide and direct; this is my impression of the differences between being a TWRA and a TFA.
I urge everyone who thinks they would prefer a group like the TWRAs over what I am trying to create here as a TFA to join The Radical One and her TWRA group. Choice is a good thing; people should go where they feel the most comfortable and where they think they can do the most good.
Shout out to The Radical One; if I mischaracterized the TWRAs or you just want to describe the TWRAs to everyone in your own words you are welcome in the comments section.
For those interested in what the TWRA Principles and Policies are:
My intention going forward is to link to all TWRA blogs in my blogroll and everybody who joins the TWRAs in the future is welcome to comment at my site. TWRAs and TFAs are allies.
The 3 fundamental principles of the TFAs are support for Traditional Women’s Rights, support for unconditional Chivalry, and obedience to the Superior Power. In addition what the TFAs support come from 3 broad sources of moral thinking; coverture, modern Christian Patriarchy, and natural law. The TFAs have no specific policy positions at this time.
So come join the TFAs! Let’s roll back feminism together!
