Default "I look down on moms"

wow...this little blog piece is firing up the internet this week (and understandably so)

http://thoughtcatalog.com/amy-glass/...-im-not-sorry/

I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry

Jan. 15, 2014By Amy Glass

Every time I hear someone say that feminism is about validating every choice a woman makes I have to fight back vomit.
Do people really think that a stay at home mom is really on equal footing with a woman who works and takes care of herself? There’s no way those two things are the same. It’s hard for me to believe it’s not just verbally placating these people so they don’t get in trouble with the mommy bloggers.
Having kids and getting married are considered life milestones. We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it’s a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with. These aren’t accomplishments, they are actually super easy tasks, literally anyone can do them. They are the most common thing, ever, in the history of the world. They are, by definition, average. And here’s the thing, why on earth are we settling for average?

If women can do anything, why are we still content with applauding them for doing nothing?
I want to have a shower for a woman when she backpacks on her own through Asia, gets a promotion, or lands a dream job not when she stays inside the box and does the house and kids thing which is the path of least resistance. The dominate cultural voice will tell you these are things you can do with a husband and kids, but as I’ve written before, that’s a lie. It’s just not reality.
You will never have the time, energy, freedom or mobility to be exceptional if you have a husband and kids.
I hear women talk about how “hard” it is to raise kids and manage a household all the time. I never hear men talk about this. It’s because women secretly like to talk about how hard managing a household is so they don’t have to explain their lack of real accomplishments. Men don’t care to “manage a household.” They aren’t conditioned to think stupid things like that are “important.”
Women will be equal with men when we stop demanding that it be considered equally important to do housework and real work. They are not equal. Doing laundry will never be as important as being a doctor or an engineer or building a business. This word play is holding us back.

Did her mother read this? Perhaps she should have heeded this advice and not had this wonderful gift of a child.

I say if a woman is back packing through Asia. That means se hasn't accomplished much and has rich parents and has no. Direction in life

I do agree housework is easy. I do double duty an it's not as hard as some women make it. As before I get bashed at the moms my wife would agree that I do 70% of the house management and kid duties. I'm also the bread winner

So I give this blog a 75% score

I read an article about it this morning. I really could care less what this woman thinks. I guess there are Women and Men out there that probably do care.....OH WELL.

Being a SAHD, I know what I do and I LOVE IT. No commentary will ever change my opinion of being a SAH. I will NEVER regret my decision. Being there for your kids and watching them grow up is way more fun then being out in the workforce, unless I came up with the working design for a Fusion Reactor

Are you just as good at blow jobs? What if that is a woman's greatest achievement?

I didn't take the time to figure out who this piece of work author is, but as a working woman I can honestly say I never saw the stay at home moms as having a "easier" job. Being underpaid, under appreciated and on constant call is not something just anyone can do.. so to the mom's and dad's who do it THANK YOU!

the official recognition of mom and housewife as a job came when SAH's were allowed to contribute to IRA's. And every SAH should do the maximum allowed. If you don't have a career, how do you get a retirement plan? And don't let the one who goes out to work discourage you or cheap out on your investment plan.

Obviously she's never getting married or having kids
She would change her tune if she did
Any one who is a stay at home mom has my appreciation
It's a tough job
When we had our second child we had a decision to make
One of us was going to have to stay At home. I stay working because I hated my job less
According to her it was tougher raising the kids

There was a time, when a husband could work a modest job.
Own a modest house. Own a car. And mom could stay home with the kids.

This was before the planned push to get women into the workforce.

They were pushed into the workforce to generate more TAX dollars for the government to service it's debt.

It was a scheme to produce more wage slaves.

And it morphed into a necessity for a family to survive.

One salary to pay for the every day bills, the other salary to pay the income & property taxes, the escalating insurances, and all of the taxes & fees tacked on to every single transaction you have.

Do the math

Add it up for yourself.

the majority of men and women who work say they are happier at the office than being home all day.

men had that cushy setup to themselves for decades. actually wasn't it Rosie the Riveter who started it all? And women found out how nice it is to be at work with other people and not to have to ask the husband for an allowance?

i'd say most women who stay home are very exceptional..work is easy because it's social and you are paid for what you do. also, sometimes there is even a thank you or an award.

women who are SAHM's have my respect..and it's not just keeping the house clean, it's doing work that if you do it well, there is no salary high enough.

I've heard of marriages where the SAH spouse actually gets an income and is able to contribute to Social Security for those years of tending america's future little stockbrokers, teachers and techies.

I have done both and in midst of combo of it. Stay at home is a 24 hour job with no paychecks and usually no true appreciation given. The blog is very insulting and I can certainly see why she is getting e.lynched.

I know the woman's blog is about SAHM's, but it actually is a bit harder to be a SAHD.

Societies perception and prednisone that he must not be a real man or e is a bum or lazy etc. also no SAHD sewing circles. Plus ad household asks the men normally do on top of the domestic duties (mow lawn fix sink. Hang lights kill spiders etc)

If we all follow her advice the human race would be gone in a few generations.

Being a parent regardless if you are a woman or a man is the most important job for humanity, it is lots of work to raise kids to be decent people for society.

Well put....don't think I could have put it much better. I am sure there are more, but one of the biggest difficulties is the sewing circles. I don't know if there is a stigma of being a man that they can't have him in their circle or invite him to coffee or lunch. They probably are intimidated by my handsome looks and they know their temptation would get the best of them...

I don't mind the chores....that is part of life and I don't have to do them when I get home from work.

If it makes you feel better the sewing circle in my area never liked the working mom's much either.. and you know how irresistible I am

I don't mind the chores....that is part of life and I don't have to do them when I get home from work.

Actually I like the working moms. The stay at homes for life are okay, I guess, but my grandmother worked outside the home and was a great mother. My mom did too and only one of her kids turned out bad (sorry, mom). My wife worked outside the home and was a fantastic mother, the best. So that's where my opinion comes from.

It's totally okay if someone can only be one or the other. But both? I bow.
