Conservatives are talking about a radical feminist named Laci Green who is supposedly opening herself to red pill ideas. Some are optimistic that she might even be converted. Leftists are freaking out over it.
But let’s not kid ourselves. I doubt Laci Green is really going to even have a real discussion about red pill ideas. Why? She makes too much money with her radical feminism, including an MTV show. Why would she jeopardize that?
It seems from Laci Green’s red pill video like she isn’t really open to it, as she gives no specific examples of what she will talk about. She only spews vitriol towards anything specifically red-pilled.
Laci Green says she may be open to new ideas, but then she bitterly recalls her Mormon upbringing.
“I used to be Mormon, pretty intensely so. You know, when I was twelve years old, there were adults telling me that my ‘spiritual destiny is to be perpetually pregnant.’ Cute, right?”
No, no they didn’t, Laci. That’s not true. Mormons don’t tell their kids that it is their destiny to be pregnant.
This is a histrionic line that ex-Mormon feminists frequently use, a strawman caricature of the Mormon traditional lifestyle. Laci Green clearly does not know much about Mormon doctrine.
The truth about Mormonism is we believe men and women can be sealed eternally and go on after death with that same relationship. Posterity is a blessing to marriage, so this post-death relationship probably involves procreation of some kind. Laci equates this with being “perpetually pregnant.”
This reveals Laci Green’s disdain for traditional family and motherhood. Is it coincidence that she published this video near Mother’s Day?
Laci Green started out as a atheist propagandist. But then she removed her videos about leaving Mormonism and becoming atheist, and she focused on being a “public sex educator.” Why? Because this issue is the crux of why she left Mormonism and she can’t get past it. She is stuck on sex.
Through all her many videos, hours and hours of explaining and analysis, Laci Green has yet to come to a realistic conclusion about sex. She complains that men in Congress make decisions about her body with abortion laws. Yet she also advocates for “gay rights.” Doesn’t the supreme court decision allow government to define personal relationships, just the kind of thing you were railing against?
Feminists don’t see the contradiction here because their analysis is so facile and short-sighted. You see this in Laci Green’s red-pill video. She speaks of getting two sides of an argument like it is some kind of grand new revelation. Laci Green prides herself in deep analysis. She gets about two steps into the critical thinking process that the rest of us learned in elementary school.
The fact is, Laci Green needs to confront her deep-rooted issue with sex and Mormonism before she can move on with her life.
How It Started
Laci Green makes no secret that it started with masturbation at a young age. She says she resents the Mormon church because she started masturbating and felt bad about it because she was Mormon. “In my early teens, I was overcome with shame and guilt and anger–anger at myself.” She then launches into justification about masturbation and why it helped her.
Then things become more serious. In another video, Laci Green mentions “my first boyfriend sexually assaulted me, and when I went to my friends for help they called me a slut.”
That’s quite a leap. Rape by her first boyfriend is a lot more serious than some masturbation. When it comes to your youth, why not discuss the shame, guilt, and anger from the rape? This is something I urge Laci Green to explore objectively. It sounds like there is a lot more to all this.
According to Roosh, Laci Green suffered with depression, thoughts of suicide, weight problems, and cutting herself. Her early experiences obviously hurt her, and all these youtube videos and hatred for the Mormon church over a little masturbation don’t seem to be helping. All this “sex positive” lecturing isn’t helping.
How Laci Green Can Heal
If Laci Green is truly serious about a positive two-way discussion, here are my suggestions:
Step #1: Get away from the crazy Berkeley feminist crowd. Stop working for pernicious corporations like MTV. Escape the bubble. Find traditional friends that you can have frank discussions with.
Step #2: Actually study traditional “gender roles” in society, marriage, and personal sexual development. Don’t get your information from MTV or Berkeley professors. Get both sides of the argument and consider what the scriptures have to say about it, even if you don’t believe in the scriptures.
There is a reason why the nuclear family has worked for thousands of years while “progressive” societies have fallen, one by one. There is a reason why societies and individuals thrive when they abide by “gender roles.”
Laci Green’s refusal to study traditional sexual roles prevent her from achieving a serious conclusion. I should also add, a steady of healthy masculinity is necessary. It is crazy that feminists revile clean-cut nice Mormon boys as “toxic.”
Step #3: Develop your spirituality, independent of friends and organizations. Ex-Mormons almost always point at judgmental friends for becoming atheist.
They “made” me anti-religious.
This dependence on other people’s approval, this lack of Stoicism, shows that Laci Green never had the wherewithal to develop strength. She needs to stop blaming her friends, stop blaming her family, stop blaming the church, and pursue spiritual development for herself before involving anyone else.
Step #4: Admit that it was wrong to masturbate. I know, an outrageous suggestion. You probably felt immense shame after you did it, especially if you considered yourself a devout Mormon.
But there’s nothing wrong with touching yourself! Why was masturbation wrong?
Well, it really isn’t that big of deal. The rape is an immensely bigger deal, so it’s weird that Laci Green got so caught up with the masturbation.
The reason masturbation is an issue is because it led you on a path that put you where you are today, with the layers and layers of justification and rebellion, guilt and shame. It is a problem because it pointed you away from traditional marriage. It was a small splinter that festered.
Sins are sins because of where they lead you. You did not hurt anybody by it, as far as any third-party observer is concerned, but it affected you in a way that led to depression, self-loathing, and sexual unhealthiness. It’s like a little kid who steals a candy bar from a store and beats herself up over it. You went on to blame the store for all the shame you felt and make a career out of justifying your actions. A happy family is very difficult to achieve and masturbation got in the way, because something small became a mountain when you denied that it was a problem.
Step #5: Value motherhood. As a defense against the shame of these early experiences, you revile the notion that normal motherhood brings great happiness. That’s because you have no hope of achieving it.
This will require a logical understanding of why motherhood is important to you individually and to society, and a spiritual inkling of how motherhood helps you grow. The hardest part will be emotionally, however. Years of emotional band-aids and justification have put you in a place that few people get away from. This will require an advanced understand of repentance as a tool for healing and improving.
Step #6: Repeat these steps whenever you get stuck. Try as many times as needed from the beginning. Try to stop blaming yourself or others.
I think it is nice that Laci Green says she is open to considering red-pill ideas. This will help in step #2 as she gains a better understanding of marriage and sexuality. Whether she follows through or this is just virtue signaling remains to be seen. If she doesn’t it is not because she didn’t try. This is a very hard place to turn back from.
Laci Green needs to embark on all of these steps in order to recover from feminism.
