I was going to submit this myself but a Google search brought me here.
I'm against feminism. I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother. I don't need a career to be fulfilled. Having had a job outside the home, I'd rather
stay home! Your worth as a member of society should not depend on how much money you make.
Being a housewife is not about being barefoot and pregnant constantly--heh, my husband only wanted one child--for financial reasons. Though if I
become pregnant again we'll simply have two children (he's had a vasectomy so the chances of that are next to none).
I sure don't feel like I'm a slave. Hubby works, I take care of the baby and the house, it's called TEAMWORK. He doesn't consider me his slave.
He wants to do something, my input is always welcome. Where do these women get off whining about an "oppressive patriarchy"? Give me a BREAK!
Now as far as women's rights--First of all, the early feminists believed abortion to be wrong. Their thinking was, considering that women were
treated as property, it wasn't right that a woman should treat her own children as property to be disposed of as seen fit.
Women WERE allowed to vote before the 19th century. Voting rights were dependent upon property ownership/head of household. So a single woman or a
widow could vote if they owned property. Men could vote if they owned property. But in the early 19th century the "Enlightenment" came along and
women were to be considered ornaments. Now that I agree is not right, and that's what Susan B. Anthony et al fought against.
Men and women are different and there's nothing wrong with that. A man's role is not superior to a woman's role and vice versa. Men and women are
supposed to COMPLEMENT each other; that's why they're different. They need each other--two halves of a whole.
Contrary to what people think of the Bible, NOWHERE in the Bible does it say a woman has to be dumb and uneducated. Take a look at Proverbs 31,
starting in verse 10.
