Inez Feltscher, a conservative writer for The Federalist, is receiving some backlash for her anti-feminist claim that women should ‘maintain their beauty for the purpose of keeping their husbands happy.’
Feltscher, a 29-year-old who is married to a member of the Tea Party, lives in Washington, D.C. Writing for The Federalist, Feltscher wrote a piece entitled ‘Staying Fit for Your Husband Is One of the Best Gifts You Can Give Him’.
In the piece, Feltscher said that women should ignore the ‘pack of feminist lies that make both men and women unhappier’ for the sake of their marriages.
Furthermore, Feltscher mocks the notion that ‘men and women desire the same things in relationships’, describes a “be yourself” attitude as a selfish way of living.

One of these culturally-verboten male needs is wanting a wife he can get excited looking at. There’s nothing wrong with this male desire (obviously, as with any healthy desire, it can be destructive if not coupled with common sense and moral guardrails). But being raised entirely in a post-feminist movement culture has made a generation of women not only unable to recognize what makes men happy, it’s made even saying what many men want out loud unthinkable.
It’s sad that working towards something that makes someone you love happy has become so toxic in our environment.
It’s best to make a good-faith effort to stay in shape and keep up your beauty routine for yourself, of course, but if you’re happy in those sweats with the “holiday weight” starting to pile on, do not be afraid to consider your husband’s happiness, and how important your physical appearance might be to him. Making an effort to please the man you married is not an act of sisterhood betrayal. Honoring your husband’s masculine nature—and the desires that come with it—is one of the best gifts you can give the man you love.
According to her biography on The Federalist, Feltscher is an education policy analyst in Washington D.C., and her work has been published in Orange County Register, The Resurgent, RedState, Breitbart, among other conservative websites.
