Chanakya Quote: A Good Wife

A Stepford Wife Is Not Complete Without Her Smile….

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Proverbs 31 in the good book may outline many of the qualities to be a strong, good, hard-working wife. Many of our readers who are terrific individuals who work hard at their marriage and relationship on top of their daily routine know this. However, what sets a Stepford Wife apart is that you should do all this – on top of your daily work – with a big, bright smile.

A Stepford Wife may work hard – at cooking, cleaning, taking care of and pleasing the man in our lives, but it means nothing unless we do it with a smile, especially a smile for him.

We look at it this way: smiling is the cherry on top of dressing nice, being neat and clean, courteous and polite, and staying in shape.

Constant dieting and exercise are great. Never complaining and sugar-coating everything as if your station in life is the greatest thing is wonderful, but smiling is the crown that should sit on all that hard work. Smiling means we are happy to be compliant and submissive to our man’s needs and his happiness.

The art of the Stepford Wife is to make it all seem effortless. Let the day glide by as if you haven’t lifted a finger…and look forward to the night when we do our real work.

With a smile to show how glad we are to be with him!

Remember To Be The Proper Lady

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.

Conservative Women Propose A Solution To Income Inequality: Marriage (Time Magazine Article)

In the article, Mona Charen says, “Millions of women have taken feminist advice and it’s led to unparalleled misery.”

We couldn’t agree more. Look at the tempestuous married life of the unhappy housewife Betty Friedan of the Feminine Mystique and compare it to happy 67 year marriage of Fascinating Womanhood author Helen Andelin.

When my sister Carolyn went through all her Women’s Studies courses in college, she took it all in with an open mind and without judgment. Once she came out into the real world and found out that most women couldn’t have it out, it was time to throw in the towel and return to the kitchen. As we always say at the Stepford Wives Organization: “If you can’t do two things in mediocrity, it’s better to do one thing well!

What Does A Stepford Wife Song Sound Like?

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

You may be wondering, is it Music for Washing and Ironing?

Perhaps you fancy some songs quoted in Mad Men, especially Astrud Gilberto’s Agua de Beber. What could be more perfect than falling in love with your washing machine?

But here is one we’ve always taken a shine to:

The Primitives’ I’ll Stick With You

Witness the great Stepford like lyrics: (Music and lyrics by Paul Court. He writes the words, she (Tracy Tracy) sings them. Just the way it should be!

Noise from the city drives me off my head
Wish you could fly away
Rain comin’ down from the sky
Colder than yesterday

I’ve seen places fall apart
Same thing with people too
Don’t wanna be here when it gets dark

Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you

Hey
(x3)

Noise from the city drives me off my head
Wish you could fly away
Give me your hand a guiding light
I’ll do anything you say

I’ve seen places fall apart
Same thing with people too
Don’t wanna be here when it gets dark

Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you

Hey
(x3)

Think I’ll stick with you

Obedient Wives Club OWC and Global Ikhwan

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

The Stepford Wives Organization has often been stated on the internet as the inspiration behind Malaysia’s OWC (Obedient Wives Club).

Because we do not support polygamy (but accept it if other groups chose it as their way of life) and none of us are Muslims or Jews, we can’t take credit for giving birth to the OWC. However, many of the traditions we observe – pleasing our husbands, agreeing with everything he says, and satisfying his carnal needs in every way, at any time, we do have many parallel goals with the Obedient Wives Club.

The transcript for the above clip is here: SBS Dateline Obedient Wives Club

The Stepford Wives Organization, which began in the 80’s feel that The Obedient Wives Club- which have been attacked by feminists and women’s rights groups, as well as the politically-correct-leaning internet pundits – have been given unfair criticism. Their book Seks Islam, Perangi Yahudi Untuk Kembalikan Seks Islam Kepada Dunia (Islamic Sex, Fighting Jews to Return Islamic Sex to the World), initially offered to the public, has now been withdrawn from sales, and is only available to members.

We feel the OWC’s teachings, like the Stepford Organization’s philosophy towards marriage, have been profoundly misunderstood. We have sent one of our programmers out to Malaysia and Singapore in search of a copy of OWC’s book, and we hope to review it and give it due credit and justice as a source of reasonably good advice.

If you are a member of Global Ikwhan or the Obedient Wives Club (OWC) and can help our person obtain the book, please write us at homemaker@stepfordwives.org.

Intelligence and the Stepford Wives

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Intelligence is overrated these days. The media hails intelligent women as the liberated modern woman, but what they really are, are castrated men.

So it is with strong-willed opinionated women. Nothing says “not feminine” like a hard-nosed gal bulldozing down a man’s ideas, barking dismissive remarks, finished off with a cynical, derisive sneer. Basically, a complete reiteration of the exact male chauvinism feminists themselves decried in the 70s.

At the Stepford Wives Organization, we prefer a gentler, more feminine approach. We give way to our men, accepting their role as the leader of our marriage and family. Therefore, they should be the ones making the decisions. Besides male intelligence is high and above ours. It’s a Stepford fact.

Stepford women here at the organization are defined by our sunny disposition to follow our men’s orders. Even though Liz has a master’s in business administration and Matthew’s in the constructing business, he often calls her “clueless.” We’ve heard Edwin call Miss Thomas an “airhead” in front of everyone and she just laughs it off. Charles never misses an opportunity to inform me “not to worry my pretty little head” over important stuff.

The definition of woman is her ability to follow male instruction. Once she gives that up, she gives up her the mystery of her beautiful, compliant feminine nature.

The Stepford Wife’s Dinner Table Manners

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Despite what people say about Stepford Wives being conformists to one accepted way of doing something, the girls in our organization do have our individual styles at our dinner table. Needless to say, the basic rules still apply: we never have dinner without our husbands present. But the similarity ends there.

Carolyn, my sister, always hovers over James while he eats. She continues serving his meal, freshening his drink and bussing the dishes back and forth until the courses are all served. After that, she sits down and listens to how his day went.

I’m a little different. I sit with an empty plate in front of me while Charles eats: I don’t get up until he needs something. Whatever Charles doesn’t finish, he forks his leftovers to my empty plate and after I get him his next course, I eat whatever he doesn’t want. That way, we have time to catch up.

Both Georgina and Jane dress themselves up nicely and sit quietly smiling across from their husbands while the husbands eat. They feel the man should come home at the end of the day to a nice home, a warm meal and a beautiful wife among their possessions. Georgina feels nourished enough if she gets an approving stroke on her head from Edwin. Most of the time though, Mr. Thomas just tells her to go sit in the other room while he eats.

Of course, Liz has her very own signature etiquette. After serving Matthew a nice juicy steak with all the trimmings, she often gets under the table and finishes Matthew’s menu off with a dessert treat while he smokes a cigar.

I’m the only one who actually eats anything at the dinner table, most of the girls settle for something light in the kitchen afterwards, because our men think being thin is more important than being fed.

We’re still here! Welcome back!

loving wife pleasing husband and family in the stepford life

First things first: A Happy Thanksgiving to all the families and readers out there! We all hope you are having a fantastic holiday, spending quality time with your loved ones. We girls see it as a time to spoil our husbands extra deluxe in front of his and our families.

This is just a note to inform all our gentle readers that we have not gone away. We have been mum for a while, but we have also been busy reading up on many interesting topics in between cleaning, cooking, sewing, and taking care of the men around the house (extra guys visiting for the holidays).

For the girls, we stumbled upon this curious website that’s an introductory course to the FLDS way of life. (Every time we mentioned the FLDS, we make sure our readers know we are in no way affiliated with that religious group. We do not condone most (if not ALL) of the behavior of their imprisoned leader. But we do love our authoress Helen B. Andelin (who wrote Fascinating Womanhood), and was herself an LDS Mormon. This page, entitled “Role of Women” from FLDS 101 mentions Andelin’s book to our great delight.

For men – who often write to thank us for setting up our website and blog online – we found an acronym we are not familiar with MGTOW. If you never heard of it, check out this website: Men For Justice
