Reasons Why The Women In Dunn County Are Prettier And Healthier Than The Women In Dickinson, North Dakota

Dunn County, North Dakota, is a completely rural county.  The largest town, Killdeer, has a population of about 1,000 people.

The people are very spread out across the county on large farms and ranches. I will explain that the way Dunn County people live and raise their children, makes them have unusually pretty and healthy women and daughters.

I want to first describe that the rural farming people in Dunn County have traditional families with both a father and a mother that are very much in charge.  Far out in the middle of no where, what mom and dad says is the law, and mom and dad are the main influence and guide, completely controlling the environment that their kids are raised in.

Life in North Dakota has always been extremely difficult in comparison to other states.  North Dakota has long and very cold winters, usually there are high winds which make it even colder with the wind chill.  The ground is not very fertile, trees and other vegetation does not flourish.  The very hard and difficult life in North Dakota dictates that rural families have to live a certain way.

Because it is cold for about seven months out of the year, and because the ground is only good for growing a few kinds of crops, for the farmers, both mom and dad have to work elsewhere, in addition to farming.  Except for the three brief oil booms, there were very few jobs in Dunn County.  Mom might be a school teacher or work at the grocery store, dad might be a mechanic.  But jobs were scarce, and jobs would often times go away due to failed crops or low crop prices.

The mom and dad farmers had to be serious and hardworking at their jobs, because jobs were scarce, and they also had to be serious and hardworking at farming, because farming in North Dakota is difficult.  The mom and dad farmers in Dunn County were not, and could not be, silly, foolish, lazy, or wasteful.  The moms and dads were not going to allow their children to be foolish, lazy, or wasteful, and they would have to work too.

In the morning before school, the kids would have some farm chores to do, like go feed the animals.  The kids might have to walk 1/2 mile down their driveway to wait for the school bus in the morning when it was typically 0 degrees Fahrenheit.  After getting let off the school bus at the end of the school day, it was 1/2 mile walk back up the driveway.  Then it was more farm chores.

After the farm chores, the kids probably had to do house chores like cleaning, doing laundry, help make dinner.  Remember, the kids are having to do this farm work and house work because their mom and dad have 9 to 5 jobs, then mom and dad have to come home and do work too.  The dad is always having to work on farm equipment, automobiles, wells, the barn, the house, plumbing, appliances, etc.

The wives and kids are busy all day working.  They hardly have time to eat.  They are certainly not sitting in front of the television all afternoon eating potato chips.  When the wives and kids do eat lunch and dinner, they probably barely replace all the food calories they use.

In all of Dunn County, there is no McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Arby’s, Hardees, Taco Bell, or Dominos.  All of the families have to cook dinner every night.  And no, mom and dad and their three kids are not microwaving three 300 calorie frozen dinners for each of themselves.  They are eating fresh meat, fresh vegetables, and potatoes.

The rural families might go to the grocery store once each week, or once every two weeks.  They are not buying a lot of Doritos, potato chips, Fritos, cheese puffs, pretzels, cookies, frozen dinners, or soda because it is junk food and they are trying not to waste money.  Sometimes they don’t have money to waste.

The rural families living out in the middle of no where do not have anyone interfering with the way their family lives.  They do not have the next door neighbor insisting that they take turns driving the kids to and from school if the mom and dad have already decided their kids are going to walk to the end of the driveway and wait for the bus.  There are no moms going through the drive through at McDonald’s every day.  Their kids aren’t going next door to the neighbors and sitting on the couch all afternoon eating potato chips and playing video games.

Because of the lifestyle of always doing physical work on the farm, always being active, not spending hours on the sofa watching television, not eating junk food all day, not having access to fast food, not having the time to over eat, and having to cook fresh food every day for dinner makes the women in Dunn County prettier and healthier than the women in Dickinson.

My description of life on a farm in Dunn County might seem like slavery to some readers, the isolation, no neighbors right next door, no relief from farm work responsibilities.  But it is these things that keep these families safe and healthy.  As long as all of the family members are home and doing their chores, they aren’t getting into trouble or being led astray by others.  There are no gang members, drug addicts, meth dealers, crack dealers, pedophiles, womanizers, lesbians, homosexuals, transgenders, or liberal idiots out at the farm.
