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.

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin
