meat0918: Philip Francis Queeg: Rent Party: Philip Francis Queeg:
So tell us why that is the woman's problem more than the man's. Are you not equally responsible with your wife for the care and raising of your children? Would you give up work to save your kids from the horrors of daycare?

Why do you think it isn't a man's problem? Men understand the sacrifices that you have to take to have a career. We just don't biatch about it, or act like it's unfair.

"Yes honey, I know I don't spend as much time at home as you'd like, but someone has to pay for the home, and ensure you get to eat every day."

Men do, huh? Really, That's where you are going with this is that men understand these things better than women?

The difference lies with society.

Society allows men to make those sacrifices with little criticism. It is "expected" for us to put work ahead of family. If a woman makes those sacrifices, she's a horrible human being, as evidence I give you Santorum's comments.


Two words: single parent. When you hit those two words, Santorum's little brain seizes like an overheated moped. Heck, the gender doesn't even matter then - you're looking at a single adult that must handle both work and family, with each expecting to put the other on the back burner. Male or female, you're screwed, and the societal gender bias that applies to those situations just means that you're screwed a little bit differently.

Santorum doesn't get it, doesn't understand it, and doesn't want to comprehend it, because it breaks his bizarre little worldview. The man is the worst kind of fool - he thinks he's solved the problem, when in fact he's not only wrong, but doesn't actually understand the problem. That's why he gets into these smug little tirades.

He's an idiot.

Feminists don't try to convince men that they can have everything, they assume that they already can.

Of course, that's a lie as well. I'm senior management at a large Bank - myself and my peers spend very little time with our families. I also don't expect my boss or the business itself to continue to pay me like they do if I worked 30 hours a week, especially since there are literally dozens of equally intelligent men who would murder someone for my job.

You can say, "Well that's not the way it should be" until you're blue in the face, but so long as someone out there is willing to out-compete you, then denying employers to opportunity to reward that competitiveness is just tyranny of another kind.

yeah that boggled my mind too. Women, historically and currently in many parts of the world today, and ESPECIALLY in hunter/gatherer societies, actually did the bulk of the work.

This idea that women should not work outside the home, or labor to support the family, is actually pretty new (and it didn't last long, and even while it lasted it only applied to the wealthier classes).

No one has suggested that (well, except you now). It's simply pointing out that biologically different gender roles are going to lead to different gender expectations within the broader society. That is being changed. For men, it isn't a change at all. For women it is.

Women today aren't "working harder" they're "working at something entirely different than they used to."

I agree that they should leave off the biatching. They made a decision that they'd rather get a little bit more money than stay at home, and that's cool. But I don't get the hate for day care.

From what I've seen, it doesn't matter how much time you have at home with your kids, so long as when you're with them you're actually with them. If you come home and are excited to spend a few hours with them before bedtime, they respond to it. But too many people come home from work and ignore their kids until bedtime, saying they're too worn out. The same people put on cartoons on the way to daycare rather than taking advantage of the time to talk together. Not making the effort to connect when you are together is what tells kids you don't give a shiat about them.

At one time, one adult could support a family with a wife and three kids on one salary. Now it takes two adults, 3 ignored children and the housework is now split between the two. So now you have two people working full time and sharing the other responsibilities in order to get by and still have rotten little farkers of children. I don't care which adult works, but it does in fact suck that now it takes even more work to get by than it used to. Good luck on raising a family on one income nowadays.

Ah yes, if he didn't mention husbands not doing their part to raise children when he was describing the women who are his coworkers it must be the case that he believes there are no criticisms to be made. Similarly, if one doesn't give equal vent to every possible permutation of circumstances for a situation it means they are clearly prejudiced against whatever permutation of circumstances are mentioned.

I take care of as many things as possible, like getting the kids ready in the morning for school because she leaves early, washing dishes, helping with homework and putting the kids to bed, etc. Kids are happy spending lots of time with me too.

To: "It must be so nice to have a husband to mooch off of while you get your nails done".

My wife may not get paid, but she works her ass off (literally, she eats more than I do and stays way more fit than I do) maintaining our garden, working at the school garden, volunteering and planning a community garden.

The last one is about to turn into a paid position, much to her pleasant surprise. You'd be surprised how much more respect "paid personnel" gets over "unpaid volunteer".

And then I get crap as a man because when I get home from work I would rather make dinner than plop my ass on the sofa. Cooking is my veg out time (pun intended) and helps me relax after a hard day of work.

Let's be honest...look how her family turned out. She probably should have stayed at home more.

These people sound more insane than ever, and the message is falling completely flat.

Jake Havechek: "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

-Pat Robertson


Huh. Last time I checked, most of the ladies killing their kids did it because God told them too.

So, is God promoting feminism now?

BunkyBrewman: No. Their mistake was (and still is) trying to convince half the population that you can have everything.

You can't. There are compromises you will have to deal with if you want a successful career.



DING!

Enjoy driving to work in that really cool Lexus RX, eating lunch out every day, struggling to make it to the take-out place in time to pick up the kids from day care, and wonder why life is so hectic when you JUST don't have the time to go out with your friends more than a few days a week. It's almost like those pesky kids need so much attention and take so much money and time to raise. It's really putting a cramp in your hair salon, workout, and business attire shopping schedules.

Seriously. I work with many females who fit this description to a tee. I just sit by making no waves whatsoever (because I need to work and support my wife and kids) while they constantly biatch about the lack of time they have with their friends and kids. 7:00 am to 6:00 pm in day care, including summer--what a childhood. Why even have them if working full time is so important to you?

/The above rant is aimed at married couples only--disregard if your spouse ran out on you or whatever.

"What happened in America so that mothers and fathers who leave their children in the care of someone else -- or worse yet, home alone after school between three and six in the afternoon -- find themselves more affirmed by society? Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism," Santorum writes.

Don't forget the destruction of the wage base, Sugar

Wearing them would just be amusing. Hiding behind them is a sign of a character defect.

Why is that only true for half the population? Can the other half have everything?

Are you suggested that Bunky's views on compromising in order to be successful were intended to be gender specific? Because he seems to have just made a blanket statement about people that want to have everything in response to your "half the population" statement.

I guess what I'm saying is, why read into it? It works perfectly well as a blanket statement regardless of gender or that "other half" of the population.

I didn't make a "half the population" statement.


Yup, true. Apologies, I confused which part each of you originated.

First Ron Paul and his Newsletters and now Ricky Scrotum and his "wife-like typing"...

Yes sir, these Republicans are all about personal responsibility, folks.

It's going to be so much fun watching this regressive religious nut squirm as his past words are thrown back at him.
