Quote# 63324

I always wondered why women PUSHED for women to get to
work in a career then come home & have to care for a family!
HELLO, women HAD it made - talk about the Big Lie lol

They all but demonized women at home. Truly sad - I always speculate
that this is when the family started to come unglued as more women
left the home & less care & supervision was given to the kids??

It's typical tho, they can't ever get that pendulum balanced.
In trying to get equality, they pushed women right out their
back doors into being strapped to 8+ hrs of work outside (with all its
stresses & pressure) PLUS inside the home.

There's nothing wrong with women wanting to be homemakers or whatever. There also isn't anything wrong with women WANTING to be in the work force. You missed that equality point, eh? You're not about wanting to be a homemaker, you just seem like a lazy fuck. You do that and let the rest of people do whatever they want as well.

Or it could be that if women didn't work the whole family would starve. Staying home is a luxury most women can't afford.

Don't care if I do get blasted for this one but the whole idea of women not working and doing the homemaker thing if they want to is kind of shot now that our economy is based on two income families in the US and the only reason it was pushed into a two income household is because women started entering the workforce en mass.

Being a homemaker is no longer an option for a whole lot of people who really feel screwed out of being able to raise their own kids.

I am able to work from home though so I have the best of both worlds :D

Well, primarily they have a husband who, dear, could do exactly the same. But good question, feminist or just women are wondering the same, though I don´t think that with the same mentality as you.

Once upon a time, women discovered that they could manufacture B-17 bombers and the bombs they dropped, and so on. That caused just a small paradigm shift, imho.

But if you're one of those females who want to be renowned for the clown car between your legs, knock yourself out.

Remember the good old days where the only way for a women to get money was through prostitution?

You do realize most criminals and deliquents come from 'stay at home mom' families, don't you? Just because you don't work outside home doesn't mean you're a better parent. Raising someone in Christian beliefs doesn't ensure good behavior (prision statistic say otherwise)

I agree...although I am all for people being able to make their own choice about how they want to live their lives.

One thing that gets me about some feminists is how they put down women who aren't just like them. Helloooooooo, that's discrimination too. God! Can't we all just get along???

Meh, a little fundy but the second shift is a common feminist complaint.

There is this little thing called Money. You sort of need to have some in this society. Especially during the recession.

I have no problem with women staying at home, if that's what they, and not what their husbands, parents, ministers want them to do. I have a problem with people telling me that that's what I'm supposed to want (or that's where I belong).

I'm also taking issue with the assumption that housework and childcare are the sole responsibility of the woman. I know plenty of men who are more than happy to shoulder their share of the work, even be the stay at home parent.

And I came from a two-income home, and we suffered virtually no damage from it whatsoever. If anything we gained from it, because we learned to have more responsibility at a younger age, the benefits of which became readily evident my first week in a college dorm when I was shocked to discover how many 18 year old girls had no fucking clue how to do a load of laundry. I even recently heard a rumor that one of my high school classmates still lives at home (we're in our mid-40's now) because she never learned how to do anything for herself.

Could this possibly mean that men should do more of the housework to help out?

6/19/2009 4:50:12 PM

Ms. Demenor

Here's an idea. How about more men realize that they ARE capable of doing housework and childcare like woman in the same way that women are capable of working and providing for the family.

Stop letting your husband be lazy and make him help with the chores and childcare.

And where the fuck is the father for this "in-the-home" work?

So your message to all right-wing and all fundamental cultist employers is don't hire women unless they're single.

If I were you, which luckily I'm not, I'd check all the fundamentalist cultists I know who are also employers and, if they employ women, encourage everybody to boycott their services and withdraw and withhold their patronage. Do exactly the same with all the right-wing employers you know of, if they employ women.

Let us know how popular you'll be. Not that it should worry you too much. After all, you'll be doing God's work and he'll protect you.

I can't help it if your husband is a good-for-nothing-lazy-fucking-slob who doesn't want to do his share around the house.
Not every woman is married to an asshole. Some of us actually helped in raising our kids and keeping house. Hell, I was brought up by a father who cared enough to do his share.
Sorry you were brought up to think women are meant to be drudges.

Look, if you want to be a housewife then go right ahead. Some women want more than that out of life so leave them alone and go make some pancakes.

Ah, but there's the assumption that we housewives aren't getting anything out of life, and I can assure you that I certainly am. I have the luxury of free time and the ability to spend it on any fulfilling project I see fit. Not that taking care of a big house and lots of animals isn't time-consuming, because it certainly is.

I can assure you that being a maid/cook/sex slave is NOT how we all live.

6/19/2009 6:03:09 PM



yeah which woman wouldn't want to be known solely by the achievements of their husbands. Never mind the women that never married.

My goodness, she actually thinks women had it made being homemakers. Doesn't she realize that it's the equivalent of two full time jobs? Also like most people have said, many women have to work.

I know this is one feminist complaint, but in reality many feminists today understand that being a homemaker is essentially a job. How about getting husbands to get up off their asses and help out.

Fucking clueless really.

"I always wondered why women PUSHED for women to get to
work in a career then come home & have to care for a family!"

Because they didnt.
Women pushed for fair pay and fair treatement on the job so they could support their familys when their husbands either abandoned them, or died unexpectedly.


"HELLO, women HAD it made - talk about the Big Lie lol"
Yes that is a big lie. Women were second class citizens who were forced to work for lower wages than us men in comparable jobs. They were subjected to sexual harrassment, and bypassed for promotion.
A widow with children had exactly zero opportunitys to give her children a fair chance.


The rest of your post deserves a punch in the face

Women can stay at home if they want to and if they can afford to, but most people can't afford to do that anymore. I don't know much about economy, but from what I can tell, most families need two people to make money. Even if the dad can afford to keep the family fed, the mom should still get a job so they're not suddenly without money if dad should get fired.

And this goes both ways. Dads can cook, clean, and take care of kids too, you know.
