Well I like your argument but don't forget facial factors stemming from the baby boom generation; black kids were told early on their job was to go
to school, be domestics for their mother, and grow up get a good job and buy their mother a house and car and take care of her the rest of her life.
White kids were told early on their job was to go to school, don't worry about their mother she already has a house, grow up and get a good job and
their parents would make sure they would support them as much as possible. When I was growing up all the white kids had cars by 16; all the black
kids were on the bus because it was not even a notion.
As far as discussion, I think the lack of interest has to come from the fact they grew up in a different world and what little strife that was
encountered was quickly resolved by the 1970s. Opportunities were just more bountiful and plentiful and you chose to be a radical if that was your
thing, but my point is they were coddled and taken care of as apart of that post WW2 generation. Their conditioning is we bitched we moaned we got
civil rights resolved, women's rights resolved, gay rights resolved all by 1976! Everything after that they tuned out because they were up in age to
the tune of 40+.
Feminism isn't so much as female dominance, its the media spin on what should be "equality" to women. It's like every generation and racial
orientation is fed a message. Look at the effect of Scandal on black women LOVING that show and that is the WORST representation you can give of a
black woman. Defies everything that civil/black/women's rights was supposed to be fighting for.
You are right though, our parents are OVERLY concerned with money almost to a hoarder's mentality. My mother has a lot of savings, I mean enough to
kick back with the best of them and she still is going to work until she's 80 full time even though at 66 she can comfortably draw several pensions
and be okay. But her thing is shopping and having 4 walk in closets of all the top designer outfits and shoes, a BMW 760i that costs 300 bucks to
fill up with diesel being 5-6 bucks a gallon where she lives, and the whole bit. My father wanted to revert to being a hippie and she divorced him
quick as a flash. She works in the private sector so nuff said.
I think that women are refusing to be at home because we just haven't gotten over sins of the past. I find that women don't want to be at home
because they feel that even if they are not working their men will come home and wreck the house, be sloppy, and expect them to be maids versus a
As far as you working yourself into labor look at the policies about that these days. You give birth and you could be out day of, if the baby came
early enough. When I was born they kept my mom at the hospital 2 weeks to ensure nothing was wrong with either of us, and she had complications.
Today a complication is at max a 2 day stay.
I'm over the concept of family. Let them stay here and have their cake. The entire jenga is falling, too many bricks to keep it balanced. Maybe
when it reboots it will be different but only if we learn from the sins of the past. Other than that we will be repeating it.
