INTERESTING MESSAGE FOR WOMEN *AND MAYBE DAD'S WITH DAUGHTERS;)* ----> Do people really think that a HOUSEWIFE is really on EQUAL FOOTING with a woman who works and takes care of herself?


So I found this article that reflects on choices women have to make sometime in their lives, the author defiantly takes a very strong position, what is your opinion on this?

I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry 

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.
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?

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.
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.”
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.

You really think Women are less equal to Men? Where did you get this ideology of yours? The worst Prison is in the Mind! As a Woman, if you think you are a lesser being;SHAME!
If you think assuming equality with Men (Not all Men are even equal) will suddenly change anything;PITY!
As a Man, if you think keeping your Woman at home shows superiority,you need Medical attention.
As far as Marriage is concerned, there is no definitive template. What works for Couple A might not work for Couple B.

the truth be told,ladies stop been desperate for marriage, there are thousands of things to celebrate in this short life we have and when you die, you die.

Many times as women, we tend to feel incomplete without a man by our side and would go to great lengths to ensure we don’t remain “single”. I know that feeling.

But it’s also important we do not express our vulnerability or sound too desperate that we forget to build ourselves up as individuals. Sometimes, we give up our lives, our careers, our dreams for the desires of a man and leave our own self worth and fulfillment aside.

I am not trying to undermine the importance of men in our lives. Our husbands, our partners, our relationships are very important and sacrifices can, and should be made sometimes. However, I’d just like to remind us today not to forget who we really are.

I know its hard, especially for women who have reached a certain age, to feel incomplete without a man in their lives. But please, do not lose track of your dreams. When you build yourself and you are proud of the person you are, you will naturally attract good men who would be inspired by your success and treat you with love and respect.

I do hope this inspires someone today.

yimy yimy yimy! Been thinking about this as I hve 3 sisters just frustrated with pressure to get married.Is a woman supposed to put her brain and all her skills on freeze until a husband comes along? We shd be a lot more pragmatic in our analysis and associations. Women are more than just vaginas, they are strong intelligent people
