The Correct Way to Wear A Garter Belt (Panties Over or Under?)

July 12th, 2015

Stepford Wives Garter Belt

We have always encouraged wearing garter belts – even on a daily basis under clothing you wear to please your husband, or ones he picks for you. It harks back to the golden days when things were simpler for men and maintaining femininity is a complicated affair.

One of the questions we have seen repeatedly is whether to wear your undies under or over the garter belt. A reader on yahoo answers sums it up best. We’ll let her take it from here:

I am from France. Garter belts over panties is only for modeling purposes. It is ridiculous to actually wear them this way. Might as well wear pantyhose! First, it’s easier to go to the bathroom with the panties over! Next, the whole purpose (nowadays) behind the garter is its sexiness, and its sexiness lies in the idea of “readiness” for sex, whereas pantyhose, which can be attractive, are a complete shield. If you wear the garter over the panty, how could you shed the panty easily? Just picture both scenarios and you will see the logic of wearing the garter under the panty. Plus you get the option of keeping your stockings on, very sexy!
And yes, you do have the option of not wearing underwear under your garter. But again, why take away your guy’s pleasure in having at least one symbolic “obstacle” to overcome?
Sexiness is not just the “look”, it’s all those implicit ideas behind the look! source: https://goo.gl/KOud7p

The Bernie Sanders Essay “Man and Woman” is the modern roadmap to Stepford

June 11th, 2015

The Vermont presidential candidate Bernie Sanders recently had one of his vintage essays unearthed. As usual, the media knee-jerked to the most sensational lines of assault and pornography to _blind_ the general public against the subtle cry of the modern man. We girls here at the Stepford Wives Organization have always agreed that you have to gently sift through the chaff of male-speak to discover the sensitivity of the male identity.

Stepford Wives 1975 Stepford Wives Village townline billboard

Though the full 1972 essay “Man and Woman” is reproduced in it’s entirety below, we put our blinders on against the sensational bits and bring your attention to several noteworthy lines.

The modern battle of the sexes is really one of language. We have several members who are fairly well-read in the feminist canon. You cannot read Sanders’s essay by taking it out of context. After all, this was 1972, a time between bra-burning and ERA, when Gloria Steinham and the National Organization for Women were coming into their own. Now if you take look at language carefully and reinspect this essay, it’s really the same traditional message we’ve always espoused.

Women, for their own preservation, are trying to pull themselves together. And it’s necessary for all of humanity that they do so. Slavishness on one hand breeds pigness on the other hand. Pigness on one hand hand breeds slavishness on the other

Substitute the patronizing “pigness” with masculinity, and “slavishness” with femininity and what do we have?

“Women, for their own preservation, are trying to pull themselves together. And it’s necessary for all of humanity that they do so. Femininity on one hand breeds masculinity on the other hand. Masculinity on one hand hand breeds femininity on the other….”

In the modern technological industrial era, the dependent role of man and wife have become just that, “roles.” Even homosexual couples adopt these roles to some degree, even if it fluctuates between two people constantly.

“In the beginning there were strong men who killed the animals and brought home the food — and the dependent women who cooked it. No more! Only the roles remain –waiting to be shaken off.”

At our organization, these roles are still valid and they are not negotiable. We Stepford girls cherish being dependent on our men.

Their (women) qualities of love, openness and gentleness were too deeply enmeshed with qualities of dependency, subservience, and masochism. How do you love — with-out being dependent? How do you be gentle — without being subservient? How do you maintain a relationship without giving up your identity and getting strung out? How do you reach out and give your heart to your lover, but maintain the soul which is you?

The Stepford roadmap is that we women maintain our relationships without giving up the identity of love, openness, and gentleness, EVEN if it is enmeshed in “dependency, subservience, and mascohism.” That is how we love.

The closing lines of Sanders’s essay give us:

And she said, “You wanted me not as a woman, or as a lover, or a friend, but as a submissive woman, or submissive friend , or submissive lover….”

In the Stepford Organization, the two are one and the same. We help make our husbands whole by fulfilling our rightly place as submissive woman, submissive friend, and submissive lover.

That is the path in finding our way towards rediscovering and restoring the traditional role of man and woman.

Essay with transcript follows:

Bernie Sanders 1972 Essay Man and Woman

Bernie Sanders 1972 Essay Man and Woman

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their “revolutionary” political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspapers with the articles like “Girl 12 raped by 14 men” sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

Women, for their own preservation, are trying to pull themselves together. And it’s necessary for all of humanity that they do so. Slavishness on one hand breeds pigness on the other hand. Pigness on one hand hand breeds slavishness on the other, Men and women — both are losers. Women adapt themselves to fill the needs of men, and men adapt themselves to fill the needs of women. In the beginning there were strong men who killed the animals and brought home the food — and the dependent women who cooked it. No more! Only the roles remain –waiting to be shaken off. There are no “human” oppressors. Oppressors have lost their humanity. On one hand “slavishness,” one the other hand “pigness.” Six of one, half dozen of the other, Who wins?
Many women seem to be walking a tightrope now. Their qualities of love, openness and gentleness were too deeply enmeshed with qualities of dependency, subservience, and masochism. How do you love — with-out being dependent? How do you be gentle — without being subservient? How do you maintain a relationship without giving up your identity and getting strung out? How do you reach out and give your heart to your lover, but maintain the soul which is you?

And Men. Men are in pain too. They are thinking, wondering. What is it they want from a woman? Are they at fault? Are they perpetrating this man-woman situation? Are they oppressors?
The man is bitter.

“You lied to me,” he said. (She did).

“You said that you loved me, that you wanted me, that you needed me. Those are your words.” (They are).

“But in reality,” he said, “If you ever love me, or wanted me, or needed me (all of which I’m not certain was ever true), you also hated me. You hated me — just as you have hated every man in your entire life, but you didn’t have the guts to tell me that. You hated me before you ever saw me, even though I was not your father, or your teacher, or your sex friend when you were 13 years old, or your husband. You hated me not because of who I am, or what I was to you, but because I am a man. You did not deal with me as a person — as me. You lived a lie with me, used me and played games with me — and that’s a piggy thing to do.”

And she said, “You wanted me not as a woman, or as a lover, or a friend, but as a submissive woman, or submissive friend , or submissive lover; and right now where my head is I balk at even the slightest suspicion of that kind of demand.

And he said, “You’re full of _______.”

And they never again made love together (which they had each liked to do more than anything) or never ever saw each other one more time.

Remember To Be The Proper Lady

May 12th, 2015
The Proper Lady At Stepford Wives Organization (painting: The Acheson Sisters by John Singer Sargent

The Proper Lady At Stepford Wives Organization: The Acheson Sisters by John Singer Sargent

You would think we would go to the TV Tropes Website to look up the term “Stepford,” but the true treasure on that site is the blueprint for the Stepford Wife: she is The Proper Lady:

She sacrifices herself for the good of her family, religion, and country. She is intelligent enough to smoothly run a household, and wisely spends her husband’s money for the good of her family, never guilty of negligence or selfish frivolity. She possesses the wit, taste and esprit necessary to be a star of Society, and never crosses the border of good taste and civility. She is devoted and loyal, never treacherous or scheming. Her manners are never less than impeccable, and her good will and charity are a beacon to those lucky enough to live around her. She is perfectly groomed, likely beautiful or at least comely (while the female antagonist will be more beautiful and appealing). However, more important than her personal looks is her gentle smile. Because small size is endearing (and allows for protective embraces from her lucky husband or fiancé), she will probably be on the shorter side.

So there you have it. If you don’t feel like reading the shelves of books we have to trudge through here at the organization, this is the Stepford cheat sheet, or the Cliff Notes, depending on the generation you come from.

Old Fashioned: The Christian Answer to Fifty Shades of Grey

February 15th, 2015

The big gossip in town this weekend is the premiere of the film Fifty Shades of Grey. We at the Stepford Wives Organization have maintained our position that we are in no way associated with any BdSM culture or its community. We do attract many people from that group, but we have no affiliation or interest in its practices.

So you can imagine our excitement when we heard there was an alternate to Fifty Shades of Grey by way of a film called Old Fashioned, which is more to our pace.

The movie does market itself has “not Fifty Shades of Grey.” At this point, we would watch a Pauly Shore movie by virtue of the fact that it is “not Fifty Shades of Grey.” Instead of girl meets man with weird unconventional sexual fetishes, girl in Old Fashioned meets boy with old fashioned ideas of love and courtship.

The music in the trailer, by the way, is by Ivan Colon. We thought it sounded like another band who sometimes sings about God, Belle & Sebastian.

Amy Berg’s “Prophet’s Prey” and the FLDS

February 2nd, 2015

FLDS wives of warren jeffs

Hello 2015! We’re back. (We were never gone, really. We’re still answering all your emails)

One of the questions we continue to get is about our religion. Do we belong to a particular denomination? Are we Mormons, Christians, Muslims, or atheists? The simple answer is that we are plainjane Christians. There are a few atheists in our organization. We let them be, of course.

The articles on Stepford Wives Organization reflect a broad range of religions because we research many different cultures and aspects of religion to edify the tenets of the traditional family unit. We believe the man is the head of the household, and the wife is his helpmeet.

There’s a huge pool of information to draw from. We are particularly acquainted with the teachings of the Mormons and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because as you know, our beloved guide book Fascinating Womanhood and the companion book Man of Steel and Velvet were written by the husband and wife team of Aubrey Andelin and Helen Andelin, both Mormons.

From that launching point, we went and researched historical sermons from the LDS library, including the devilishly difficult to obtain book “In Light and Truth: Raising Children in the Family Order of Heaven. The Word of the Lord Through is Servants, the Prophets.” A book only available to FLDS members. It is composed of sermons from decades of Mormon and Fundamentalist Mormon figures.

Now, we obviously do not condone the numerous illegal activities practiced by the now imprisoned leader of the FLDS, Warren Jeffs. But it should be remembered that the FLDS at one time, were mere polygamists. Though polygamy is a strange concept to us, it is worth noting that the FLDS, like the Amish, existed for decades as an insular religious group in America.

We draw on anachronistic groups like the Amish and Mennonites purely for their old fashion beliefs regarding men and women, husband and wife. At the Stepford Wives Organization (http://www.stepfordwives.org) we see everything right about the traditional roles a man and a woman upholds in marriage.

Filmmaker Amy Berg debuted her documentary Propehet’s Prey at the Sundance Film Festival recently. The film is based on the Sam Brower’s book _Prophet’s Prey_. You can see a clip of it below. It will eventually be shown on Showtime Cable TV Channel. There is talk of a limited release in cinemas across the country. It caught our eye because Berg comments that her film “shows how these tactics can destroy all freedoms and mold a person into a robot.”

Frequently Asked Question: Is Stepford Wives Organization MGTOW / MRA in Disguise?

November 20th, 2014

We have been frequently emailed and asked online, “Is the Stepford Wives Organization MGTOW?” or “Is the Stepford Wives Organization MRA men in disguise?”

So the first thing we did was to look it up online at Google. And that left us scratching our heads, “are we Maximum Takeoff Weight?” (at least that’s what we got when we typed in our inquiry at Wikipedia).

So then we typed in MRA, and Google returned this picture:

Now we’re even more confused. We asked Carolyn’s husband and he said, “Um, I think they mean Men’s Rights Movement….sounds like a gun club but is really a male version of National Organization for Women.”

Needless to say, if you had met any of us in person, there wouldn’t be a need to ask that question. We definitely support the Men Going Their Own Way.

Here are a few lines from the MGTOW manifesto:

1. Instilling masculinity in Men by:

Demanding respect for men.
Serving as good male role models.
Living independent lives.
Fighting chivalry.

2. Instilling femininity in Women:

We will hold women equally accountable to men and ignore and shun those who refuse to take any responsibility for their own circumstances. Thus we induce women to take a complementary position with men instead of a competitive position as is now the case.

Feminine qualities we want from Women:

Being a Nurturer.
Being Supportive.
Being Responsible.
Being Respectful.
Being Honest.

Of course we support their goals, and stand behind them 100%. But we ourselves are NOT MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), nor are we MRA (Men’s Rights Activists).

Men today – white men, in particular – have it more difficult than any demographic group in the Western hemisphere. As quotas are required to be filled, jobs, opportunities, and benefits are doled out to a multitude of nonwhite males. We, as women, understand that invisible sense of existence. Therefore, we were able to empathize with their drive to reclaim their manhood, just as we reclaimed our femininity.

The last thing the oft downbeaten men (just watch many of the popular tv commercials where women are portrayed as smart and strong and men are portrayed as stupid and weak) needs in our society is to be made fun of. And once you combine the whole Women and Children more with the Women First vision of the new headstrong feminists, it is clear we are headed for the fall of Western Civilization.

“We Don’t Vote Unless We Are Told To” – The Stepford Wives Organization

November 12th, 2014

At the Stepford Wives Organization ( http://www.stepfordwives.org || http://www.stepfordwife.com || http://www.stepfordgirls.com ) we do not vote unless we are told by our husbands to do so. And it’s always because he wants an extra vote for his candidate.

We believe we are not informed or educated enough to make a decision about politics, so we let the man of the house handle the important matters concerning our country. Besides we are so wrapped up in dinner preparations that we seldom have time to look over the credentials of candidates.

Here are more reasons why we don’t vote. Click on each picture to view in original dimensions.

Oktoberfest Recipes 2014 at the Stepford Wives Organization

October 2nd, 2014

Oktoberfest has been in full gear at the Stepford Wives Organization. We recommend a mix of Spatzle, Red Cabbage, and Bockwurst (simply because the leek / scallion taste is delicious). Try googling a local butcher in your area using the keywords “German / Polish sausage.” Or you can call them up. We recommend buying them fresh. From that point on, you can just cook them in boiling water between 5 to 10 minutes (to get the insides cooked), then drain, and pan fry (or grill). Or you can buy them pre-cooked.

If you make Spatzle, remember to spray or brush the collander/spatzle maker with olive oil to ensure the dough will slide off the holes easier!

You can also make Semmelknodel in place of Spatzle. (recipe for Semelknodel)

You want to wash all this down with an ice cold glass of Augustiner Beer, made in Munich where Oktoberfest is celebrated. Of course, it won’t taste as grand and fresh as if you were there (we’ve tried both), but it’s the next best thing.

A Picture of Augustiner Beer

Fresh Herb Spaetzle
(source: Epicurious )

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 large eggs
3/4 cup whole milk
8 teaspoons minced assorted fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme, rosemary, and chives), divided
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
8 ounces mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup (or more) low-salt chicken broth

Preparation

Blend flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in large bowl. Whisk in eggs and milk, forming soft batter. Mix in half of herbs.

Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Butter large bowl. Working with 1/3 cup batter at a time and using rubber spatula, press batter directly into boiling water through 1/4-inch holes on coarse grater, strainer, or wide ladle. Stir spaetzle to separate and boil 2 minutes. Using fine sieve, scoop spaetzle from pot, drain well, and transfer to buttered bowl. (Can be prepared 3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)

Melt 2 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add onion; sauté until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon oil, and spaetzle. Sauté until spaetzle begin to brown, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Add 3/4 cup broth. Simmer until broth is absorbed, adding more broth if dry. Mix in remaining herbs; season with salt and pepper.

Red Cabbage & Bacon
source: Chow

INGREDIENTS

1 medium head red cabbage
6 thick slices applewood-smoked bacon or other smoked bacon, cut into lardons (about 1/4-by-1/4-by-3/4-inch pieces)
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

INSTRUCTIONS

Slice cabbage in half lengthwise. Use a sharp knife to cut a V-shaped notch around the white core and discard it. Slice both pieces in half again so you have 4 quarters, then thinly slice each piece crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick strips. Set aside.
Place bacon in a large Dutch oven or other large, heavy-bottomed pot with a tightfitting lid over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and most of the fat has rendered.
Add onion and stir to coat in the bacon fat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook until the onion softens and the edges begin to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the reserved cabbage, stir to coat in bacon fat, and cook until the cabbage begins to wilt, about 4 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar and mustard.
Deglaze the pan with the cider vinegar, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Add the chicken broth and season with a few pinches of salt and more freshly ground pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium low and cover the pan tightly. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is soft and soupy and the bacon is tender, about 45 minutes. If the cabbage begins to look dry, add more broth or water.
