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?

A friend posted this blog on Facebook for others to read… They were disturbed by what this author posted. Here are just a few quotes of ignorance from the author:

I look down on young women with husbands and kids and I’m not sorry.

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.

ig·no·rant (adjective) lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.
(Just two examples calling out her B.S. – My 90 day road trip and a family of four who travel all over.)

Initially the feminist movement was meant to empower women to be whatever they wanted including wives and mothers. It was about supporting other women, not bashing other women. Real feminist really do respect other women and their choices. This is what our society is falling into. Before bashing someones decision, try this age-old saying…

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

Feminism isn’t about being self supporting and traveling the world on your own. Its about being allowed to make that choice for yourself. Women couldn’t make choices about their lives or country (Some still CANT! That is what we SHOULD be focusing on!). Women couldn’t be doctors, lawyers, mechanics, journalists… They could only live at home with their parents until they were married off. Now we can CHOOSE to be doctors, lawyers, mechanics, journalists, OR stay-at-home moms.

Our value is NOT based off of what we do, but that we ARE. 

Well, I am sorry Amy of the opinion you have developed bashing the same sex as you. Your negativity will not get you as far as had you chose to support, respect, and love others. Instead, it will only bring more negativity your way.
