(Right Country) – The London Times is the most recent media outlet to compare the growing popularity of embracing traditional gender roles to ISIS.
This is exactly why the progressive left and their supporters in legacy media are losing the interest of regular, everyday people who understand that men and women are different and tend to be happier as the family unit functions more harmoniously when traditional gender roles are embraced.
The outlet even went as far as to compare “trad wives” to “ISIS brides.”
“A growing online community of women are rejecting feminism in favour of submission to men. The techniques used to radicalise them are similar to those used to groom Isis brides,” laments Julia Ebner.
Ebner works with the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) a UK think tank that works with national governments, Google, and other entities “to counter hate and extremism in the UK.”
It went from women being "empowered" to 'women who want to embrace traditional gender roles are on a par with ISIS brides of terrorists'. pic.twitter.com/JqUpyyQOan

Summit News notes:
Apparently, women who choose to be subservient to men in the framework of a traditional marriage now represent an extremist movement.
This is not the first instance of the ‘trad wife’ narrative being linked with extremism.
Self-proclaimed “anti-fascist” researcher Becca Lewis reacted to a BBC piece about ‘trad wives’ by labeling it “literal white supremacist propaganda.”

The New York Times also published an article asserting that “mommy-vlogging is a virulent strain of white nationalism.”
Running alongside what could be mistaken for a peculiar style of mommy-vlogging is a virulent strain of white nationalism. Who are these women? They call themselves tradwives. https://t.co/0zeVeepBo4

And while young people are being encouraged to chase a lifetime of vacuous promiscuous sex, mothers are being publicly shamed on national television for wanting to take care of their husbands.
A Brisbane mum has been SLAMMED after revealing online that she doesn't go to bed until the house is clean and wakes up at 4:30am to make her husband breakfast and coffee. What do you think about this? #9Today pic.twitter.com/DX5NMQUszH

First of all, you don’t have to be a staunch traditionalist to embrace loosely traditional gender roles, as countless men and women throughout history have done without preaching strict biblical complementarianism.
The inconvenient truth for these leftists is that even the most educated and “empowered” women tend to prefer careers that better accommodate having children and being at home.
Grad-school women overwhelmingly choose careers like pediatrics, psychotherapy, and education because women are just more likely to be interested in caring and nurturing for others, especially children, and because lower-pressure white-collar careers like these better accommodate family leave and hours that can center around picking children up from school.
There are still a great many women who also simply prefer to stay at home and be with their kids, and modern psychological research tends to support the idea that children simply do better when they are in the care of their own mothers in the early years of their life.
