Women have been a topic of contention in the Alt-Right for some time now. If you’ve had your ear to the ground – as I do – you will have noticed that while a lot is being said, not a lot is being done. The most commonly discussed topics are voting rights and the position of women within relationship and societal level. I believe that as a woman within the movement I may have a unique perspective to share, having had a difficult time determining where I stand within the movement to our members.
The word ‘movement’ indicates motion, and is easily represented by the image of a wheel. We within the Alt Right consider ourselves a part of a movement because the action of each member is assumed. However this is the issue, as the wheel is currently a few spokes short of an effective creation… almost an entire gender short of a completed wheel to be precise. Finding my place as a part of the movement has been a growing experience for me, and it’s taken a good few years to get to a place where I feel comfortable and of use.
Even as a woman who agrees with traditional gender roles – that women should be at home tidying and providing for their men – I have found a marked difference from when I entered as a single woman and when being in a relationship. I have found that your relationship status has a huge impact of where you stand in the movement as a woman and how others see you. There is an immense pressure to find a partner and while there were many men in the movement who showed interest in an Alt-Right woman it was almost overwhelming at times.
We want to be accepted & appreciated by our comrades – and the way I see it, a single woman will find it difficult coming to terms with her status within the movement while not caving to social pressure. Being in a movement that is so strongly geared towards tradition, we almost forget that we’re all on this ride together. Sometimes we need to assess if our wheel has enough driving force to get up that hill. Are we built to be strong enough to resist the bumps on the road, even if we attempt to move cross-country? Do we have enough tread to avoid slipping? Wheel metaphors aside for a moment, what can we do to treat each other when we need a little more support, and what can be done to support & encourage the women in the movement? By this, I am not suggesting that we all “white knight” and jump in defence – I mean as a brother would support a sister. A spoke in a wheel to help support and keep the wheel turning smoothly, to prevent a bumpy ride or a breakdown.
Depending on where in Australia they’re located, women in the movement vary; take my situation for example – Having been on the forefront of the culture war in Melbourne I had to be strong willed, thick skinned and more often than not able to hold meaningful conversations with the men in the movement. Whereas if I went to a different state where there was not much in terms of diversity, I would have a hard time fitting in due to my experience back in Melbourne. I found that the Melbourne culture has a very good balance in regards to engaging woman and supporting them, as well as encouraging them to be feminine whist in the thick of a “culture war” within the city. Socially Melbourne is inclusive and engaging. Yet it certainly has a hyper-masculine culture, they have a strong emphasis on fitness, activity and health.
Conversing with other women in the movement on this topic, I found that we have different effects on the individual woman depending on the culture they harbour in their city/state. I was speaking to one woman from Sydney who said, “I never felt the pressure to find anyone and have been involved with these guys for years. In fact, it meant I could be more picky because there are so few women. Maybe it’s a different culture outside Sydney though.” This gave me much to understand so I went and discussed the culture in Sydney with a few men and asked them how they saw women in the movement. One male that is very active in the movement said that in Sydney they welcome women into events and other activities, they have a very dynamic and engaging environment. Male members from Queensland showed that they also had a rather nurturing environment for women and tend to support women getting involved in the movement. However, they do have a few men’s only events.
Once I got into a serious long-term relationship in inter-state I found myself very removed from the movement. I was in a relationship, and taken women associating amongst other men is viewed unkindly in the movement. So I tried to connect with the women in the movement, and found great difficulty trying to connect with many of them due to the variants in personality, and that we’re so far and in-between in life that serious connection becomes frustrated. Many women I have found and that I have spoken to in the movement have felt the same way. This is where most women that cannot persevere, then regress back to their “normie” friends or seep into a giant “black pilled” stupor. That, and waiting before marriage and children in the movement is like torture for many women. Needless to say, it does not contribute to healthy minded women.
After doing some research I have found that each city solves the “Role Of Women” differently, which can contribute to conflicting methods and messages to women who wish to join the movement. Is it time that the men of Australia sat together and figured out what they want from a woman and where her place should be in this movement. Do we need to be more involved or less involved? How can we solve this? Should there be a good consistent strong leadership for women in Australia?
In today’s society traditional women are forced to be stronger in character, we cannot afford to be delicate, we cannot afford to be complacent. We (women) need to be present in this “culture war”. As a movement we need to stop holding this ideal reality of women being docile and soft in nature, it is nice and lovely. But as whites, we need to do everything in our power to preserve our culture and our race. That means that we need all hands on deck, we need this to happen because if we do not – the ideal reality will never be obtainable.
We need female representatives, we need to provide our women with platforms and we need to ensure what we are working for. Men need to guide us, give us vision and provide us with a mission. Yes, this is a mans world. However, without women… Men will have nothing to fight for. We need to retain the women we have and we need to obtain more.
What attracted me to this movement was the traditional element and the fact that everyone had a place. However, in the current environment we cannot have that reality – the economic conditions have made it thus. So, we need to find a more suitable placement for the women in the movement and in life.
We have to create an environment in which women wish to be surrounded by and to be accepted into. This means being respectful and to provide a stable, yet patriarchal placement.
Quality men, attract quality women.
So to speak… Keep the wheel shape, but redesign the spokes a little!
