Thinking that a woman or anyone is only worth something if they bring in a paycheck is degrading....raising your own children and being there for your family if you can is priceless. Militant feminism is just another form of greed and an excuse for women to have daycare raise their children so they can be selfish and have their career also....sorry., I know that was harsh and many women don't have a choice...but most of the one's that look down on stay at home mom's are either jealous or think a career is more important.....guess what, this is America....if the family can afford it...it is no one's business who works and who stays home....more busy body, nanny mentality lib think....mind your own houses and get out of ours.

It's just GREED and SELFISHNESS to think women have to bring in a paycheck or men....one can work one can take care of the family...look at the mess we are in because of the breakdown of the family so apparently, their way does not work.

Just who was that radio personality?

I remember a TV personality saying that a woman who cares for her children, never had a real job.

And i am sure that your husband loves and respects you more than the husbands of those feminazis.
The point is you can't be a servant of your husband as you both are one after your marriage.
Btw, we always want happiness for the people we love, isn't it???
Star for you.

You come from an era that sounds like my Mom.

It was an HONOR at that time to raise your family and take care of the house hold while the husband worked. No one thought bad about that. It just was.....

Sadly, when my Dad died years ago, this was before Wal-Mart or McDonald's stared hiring older people, my Mom went through her savings while applying for job after job only to be turned down because of her age and lack of "experience".

Long story short, she lost every thing. Since then, she's passed on.

There are 4 of us kids and the one lesson we learned is to not be dependent on any one person.

It has nothing to do with feminism but about survival.

To this day, both my husband and I are self-employed, and he has made sure that if some thing were to happen to him, God forbid, that I am self-sufficient and able to carry on without being dependent on any one.

I applaud you and have the most respect for you and your family. My Mother would be appalled at the put-down of stay at home Mom's.

For me, it's about survival, not women's rights.

I would also like to add one comment. It is possible that the feminist movement, atheist movement and others like it have either been hijacked by fascist groups or were not what they seem to begin with. This is not the fault of their followers, but the puppet masters. What are the goals of these groups? Well, to break apart traditional families and religious organizations - two main threats to absolute government control. How can the government control a population that has organizations within it? It can't - it must be the only organization, the only family, the only religion.

Think about that... hopefully I'm wrong.

I have a lot of respect and admiration for you. Family values have been lost, and these are not just about being with your family, but about those values that still remain when the house is empty (like an echo).

My wife stays at home, I am thankful for that because I know my children are in good hands, not being screwed about by the state or some other PC brigade preacher. But I will give my dues and be the dad at home when needed and I very much enjoy it, being there for my kids watching them grow up and not missing those minute details that we regret losing afterwards.

One of the ways this world will start to see reason and heal is when we as humans, return to our true values and start acting like human beings in balance with our environment, not having a game of tug-of-war with it and those around us because we want equality (our twisted notion of it).

Equilibrium is not just made from similitude, its also about the differences where opposites create a balance.

Good Night!

That's the ideal way in this world.
I won't want my wife to be in that condition if something happens to me.

My post was satire! Reread it.

Anyway, I wanted the mods to know I didn't care if they had to move it. I am an old lady after all and forgot to choose the category it should go in. Just happened to land in this category by chance.



Yeah, it's a toss up between Political Madness and RANT !!!!!

It makes me mad when people make ignorant remarks like that....

I bet your family/kids have a good solid foundation.

MOM POWER A.K.A. GRANDMA POWER

I have a history similar to yours...I tried keeping my job..management..husband is a police officer. Guess who had to take all the time off and get in trouble at work all the time, have dinner ready, shuffle kids to daycare and aunts house, all the laundry, cleaning etc...husband doesn't do woman's work either. This went on for 4 or 5 years, the last few with me at part time, finally I had enough, put my foot down and quit. Well my husband's career blossomed, I was happy, the kids were happy...win win..so the feminists can shove it...

It was definitely an eye opener...and a sad one at that. A reality slap in the face.

My husband saw what happened to my Mom, so ever since then he's taught me every thing about our business as well as personal stuff. We share the responsibilities.

Same with my siblings. They all are self-sufficient even though they are with some one.

Things don't last forever and unfortunately, not every thing ends with a happy ending.

I much rather have a stay at home wife personally. Not only does cleaning the house suck , having a meal to come home to , EVERY NIGHT?? Would be amazing. Seriously. Stay at home wifes / moms are the best. If i could afford it at least.

I remember a TV personality saying that a woman who cares for her children, never had a real job.






The radio personality was reading excerpts form an article in the Atlantic by Elizabeth Wurtzel.
1% Wives Are Helping Kill Feminism and Make the War on Women Possible
Below is directly taken from her article:
Being a mother isn't a real job -- and the men who run the world know it.
I have to admit that when I meet a woman who I know is a graduate of, say, Princeton -- one who has read The Second Sex and therefore ought to know better -- but is still a full-time wife, I feel betrayed.
I don't want everyone to live like me, but I do expect educated and able-bodied women to be holding their own in the world of work.
I am going to smack the next idiot who tells me that raising her children full time ... is her feminist choice.
.... these women are the reason their husbands think all women are dumb, and I don't blame them.
...being a mother isn't really work. Yes, of course, it's something -- actually, it's something almost every woman at some time does, some brilliantly and some brutishly and most in the boring middle of making okay meals and decent kid conversation. But let's face it: It is not a selective position. A job that anyone can have is not a job, it's a part of life, no matter how important people insist it is (all the insisting is itself overcompensation).
Which is to say, something becomes a job when you are paid for it -- and until then, it's just a part of life.

This is what started my need to write my satirical rant.

Ralph Waldo Emerson -


"You will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you do."


The assumption made by people like the "feminist" mentioned in the OP is that you both have the same priorities. Slaving your life away for some corporation when you are not compelled to do so by financial necessity is a waste. Live the way you want to live. "Real work" is overrated.

Sounds like she works as a mouthpiece for the IRS. Everybody works, everybody pays.

I have a lot of respect for women who care for their families, despite all this nonsense people are spouting now.

That is what a lot of good men strive to protect, when you take that away and the females become for themselves, men follow right behind them and start looking out for no one but themselves as well. When women become ill with selfishness so will we, because we don't have anything beautiful and pure to fight for anymore.

Society falls as a whole.

You see, women have always been in control regardless if they know it or not. It's not really a man's world, its two competing forces seeking balance and stability with one another.

Somebody had to volunteer for the payless job of taking care of everyone else. Not everyone is qualified to be a caretaker who is willing to do it for the sake of others rather than for the sake of money. Money is not exactly a good measure of true work anyway. But clearly ignorance is still out there!

I'm a stay at home mom to four boys for what it is worth!
My motto is "I will create marriable material" That includes men who value and have proper respect for the worth of a woman who does for others without expecting pay in return. To them it will be normal for the mom to be at home taking care of the kids. I once suggested to dh and the boys that I go get a job since they were all in school. Their response was "why the heck would you go do that.. you deserve to recover from us!" LMAO

My wife was a "stay at home" woman all during the years our kids grew up and also while I went back to school after the service and during my successful bid as a professional. I have her to thank for our kids, who are extremely successful in their own careers, and for the way she supported me. I in turn, gave them a great home and a great environment to live in. It does not get much better than that, and without what she did, it would not have happened.

After the kids grew up and left the house, she went back to school and became a computer pro. That is diligence!
