To really understand where this blog is going you need to read this blog called I look down on Young Women Who have kids by Amy Glass. I have posted Amy’s words in bold. My words are Italic.
Every time I hear someone say that feminism is about validating every choice a woman makes I have to fight back vomit.
You are right the Feminism movement is everywhere and every choice you make does validate you as a young woman. Women have the right to look elegant and attractive at the same time or simply look like a two cent hooker. Just appreciate your right to vote and own land. Those were the two main purposes of the feminist movement. So I really do not see the point in this feminism movement that keeps going on in the United States. I am a female and I do not feel like my rights are unequal to a males rights.
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.
Why should a married person who cannot have kids be a good slave to the system? I do not have kids and I am my own boss at home. Yes some people can work at home without kids. I will admit some days I work in pajama pants and a hoodie. It is winter time. Oh I cook at home from scratch. I am sorry I do not look pretty every day but turmeric stains everything! What makes me sorry is you are concerned about the looks of women instead of what they do with their time at home.
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?
Once again you are right before I knew I could not have children I did the whole get married thing. Anyone can do it especially at a courthouse. Making it work is the accomplishment. It is a gigantic accomplishment if you stay married to one person until the day you die. It is even more of an accomplishment to raise successful kids that are not spoiled and ignorant. If you can keep your children away from violence, horrible music, and porn your doing it right. If your child graduates high school and pursues their own dreams you did something right.
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.
Apparently you do not read other people’s blogs that much do you? There are parents who do awesome trips with their kids because they do this little thing called homeschool. Traveling the world with the kids becomes a history, science, religion, culture, and art class in one day! I feel bad for parents that depend on the public school system. They spend a lot of time at a hard working job instead of living life with the kids.
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.”
You do not understand Chivalry do you? Plato wrote about Atlantis and how the men would spend many years building a home for there future wife by hand. Men during this time prepared to be with a woman one day. It was considered an insult to a mans character if he did not build a house by the time he met this lady. A man that could not accomplish this was considered lazy and ignorant. Usually they were sent to a slave camp. They were smart back then they understood a man that is not prepared for anything will certainly not be prepared to handle life with another person. Women are expected to take care of the home the man built for them by hand. There is nothing wrong with keeping your home clean. In fact this day in age it is an accomplishment. Maybe you should You Tube Hoarders. I cannot imagine the messiness of your home Amy if you feel that taking care of a home is not 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.
This brings me back to the first part the feminist movement. We are all created equal I really hope you do not live in the United States because that is the foundation of our rights. You obviously do not support the rights of the people if you do not believe that we were all created equally. Please get off this planet. There are private space flights you can sign up for. Since you most likely carry one of these titles I bet you can afford to do so.
Doctors promote medications and gain an income whenever they sell you a new one that came out. Lawyers can be manipulative to win a case. Sure if you like selling out the health of a sick person to gain a bonus be a doctor. I heard herbologists are in…….a title is not everything.
