Patriarchy and the Victorian era: One tiny observation

Many commenters spoke of how patriarchists seemingly want to turn the clock back to the Victorian era, to the standards and values held at the time. They notice how much of the pictures on “Biblical womanhood” or “Biblical patriarchy” websites, seem to show idyllic pictures of upper-class Victorian life.

Now, I observe that Victorian era fantasies are just that: Victorian era fantasies.

So what? The age they find fantastic, had a woman ruler, Queen Victoria. And that contradicts at least some of what they claim about women.


Note: These pictures are from actual Patriarchy/ Biblical Womanhood material. The photo of girls in a garden comes from a banner for a “Beautiful girlhood” catalog, and the reading woman from “ladies against feminism.”
