What is "Womanhood"?

Today, we talk about something that should only be necessary to discuss in part. In the context of today’s world, however, I find that my silence on the full spectrum of this topic is making me feel like a person who witnesses a crime and does nothing but record it on my phone. My true self is not that person and so it is time for me to address this, bald faced and openly.

I believe womanhood is the sacred responsibility to guard, perpetuate, and practice the Divine Feminine. Who is given this charge of womanhood? Women, alone.

What is a woman? She is a creature made in the female image of God (“And God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Bereshit/Genesis 1:27). A woman is a human given the sacred role mentioned previously, and perfectly designed to act on her responsibility. She is made up of specific body parts, hormone composition, skeletal structure, spiritual and natural tendencies in order to live expertly in the role of daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, auntie, nurturer, nourisher, healer, creator, and so on.

“For You created my reins, You covered me in my mother's womb. I shall thank You, for in an awesome, wondrous way I was fashioned; Your works are wondrous, and my soul knows it very well. My essence was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, I was formed in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body, and on Your book they were all written; days have been formed and one of them is His.“ Tehillim/Psalms 139:13-16

I don’t believe in accidents and I don’t believe that the God makes mistakes. Every soul is given a body that reflects the greater feminine or masculine nature of the soul, or at the very least a body which literally embodies that aspect of the soul’s Divine contract and role for their earthly existence. Not every woman will become a mother or have a strong tendency toward healing, etc. But that has more to do with that soul’s unique calling than it does their femininity and sacred responsibility as Woman. Furthermore, we have put all our stock in academic or legal (therefore, man-made) accomplishments as rites of passage, rather than celebrating the natural rites of puberty, union, and parenthood — the things which actually signify the health and continued survival of humanity. This, I believe, is what began the disconnect from what makes womanhood and manhood each unique, wonderful, and well defined.

Men are not and cannot be women. Robots are not women. Animals are not women. A manufactured vulva is not a woman. A cocktail of hormones is not a woman. Lipstick, long hair, and a skirt are not a woman. The title “miss” or “mother” is not a woman. No, a woman is an entire person, both body and soul, created as such by Divine design.

I implore all of us to consider what an unnatural lifestyle does to an individual. How many examples do we need before we get it through our collectively thick skull that fighting against nature only causes suffering and destruction, for the person enduring and the communities those people exist within.

The following becomes most relevant in this discussion:

“A man's attire shall not be on a woman, nor may a man wear a woman's garment because whoever does these [things] is an abomination to Adonai, your God.” Devarim/Deuteronomy 22:5

The above text is certainly interpreted in certain groups as “women aren’t allowed to wear pants,” however, the wider understanding is that women should not pretend to be or put on the societally accepted appearance of men, and vice versa. I believe the Torah provides a guide to Life, not just lifestyle. Therefore, when I read, within scripture, descriptions of “don’t”s or “abominations”, I understand there is an implication of “because it will lead to degradation of Life” — as in health, holism.

I am asked, on a regular basis now, to promote transgenderism. I am told if I don’t encourage people, including children, to get irreversible surgeries and/or be put on a path of permanent pharmaceutical dependency (putting aside, for a moment, the long-term mental and emotional health ramifications of that), that I am effectively signing their suicide note. I’m force-fed the idea that trans-kids are happier, safer, and experience more love and stability, though the evidence maintains the exact opposite. It is lauded that adults who are earnestly pretending at a human experience they couldn’t possibly understand are somehow just as healthy and their experience just as valid as those who acknowledge the uniqueness and responsibility of who they actually are, spiritually and physically.

It breaks my heart to see the self-sabotage, abuse, lies, and severe disconnection from Life and health that goes along with transgenderism. I refuse to play along with a lifestyle (“preferred pronouns” and all) that can only maim and devastate. When I look around at the world today and what this heavily celebrated masquerade has impacted, I can plainly see the evidence of this truth with my own eyes. I am not the only one, just perhaps one of the few willing to say as much.

I ask of everyone: come back to Life. Remember and cherish the treasures of your Divinely appointed role as woman or man. Health and Life can only be found in the grounding reality of nature, the guidance of Torah, the designs of our Divine Creator.


“May there be peace in your walls, tranquility in your palaces. For the sake of my brethren and my companions, I shall now speak of peace in you. For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I shall beg for goodness for you.“ Tehillim/Psalms 122:7-9

This is my prayer. May it bless those who will listen.
