I would pick making some brat a sandwich, sending him off to school, and maybe doing a load of laundry if I felt like it over racing the other rats every goddamned day as well, and I'm neither British nor a woman.

Admitting a desire to not work is a step towards equality with men.  Most of us don't either.

If it's from the Daily Fail, I don't trust it.

I'd prefer that also.

I'm not clear on how taking care of three kids, shuttling them to the store, school, sports, making lunches and dinners, cleaning the house, getting laundry done, shepherding them through homework, feeding the cat, and having time to kiss your spouse too, is somehow "dependent" over doing the same thing on your own dime.

Well, except a SAHM needs to do a lot more than that, especially before the kids start school.  I get an inkling of it on the days my wife works and I don't... I don't know how anyone handles the insanity for days in a row.  Often hilarious and fun, but often messy, mindless, and exhausting.

You can be a house-wife and still be a feminist.

You have no idea how much I would love to never have to go to work ever again.

My gf is a rn student w/ a few semesters to go. I told her to quit her job, and just concentrate on the last bit of schooling. She is getting A's, laundry is done, house is clean, dinner's on the table when I get home, she slimmed up from daily exercise, and our garden looks great. I don't want her to go back to work now.

I'd like it if people just threw bricks of money at me.  Working is such a drag.

That's what I'm talking about. I'll be a househusband, no problems.

The truth of the matter is, most women these days simply are not qualified to be housewives. Remember how cute it was to play the fool and purposely not learn or contribute to any basic household chores while getting that journalism/communications degree? In addition to that bullsh*t degree, managing a household is just another skill you don't have.
 
2013-05-16 10:41:16 PM
Listen I can see this as the issue but it is known by me that many of the women in the field of me which is the field of the science have the belief that they are simply here to be the individuals who can do the impressing of the men in the neighborhood of these who have said they do not have the capability of this.  For the personal nature of me I am in the field of this because there is the limited competition when I wish for sexing the various professors in the world of me.  I am the very attractive girl in the scientific field and have probably provided to over 7 professors who have done the publishing in Science or Nature the jobs of the blowmanship.  Until you have had the sexual intercoursing with someone who does the publication in these two journals you do not know the blowing which the mind of you has experienced.  If this was not the case of me however then I would be the individual who would just say at the home and have the average guys come to the sexing call of me.  Today I call this the weekend.

Fark, you need to stop taking the Daily Fail seriously. I cannot understand why you would want to link such a blatantly racist, homophobic piece of shiat to this site, even just to point and laugh.

STFU and GBTW, woman! The State will raise your children.

What? You think we can pay off the loans from the Central Bankers by taxing just your husband?

STFU and GBTW, woman!
 
2013-05-16 10:43:37 PM
I would have loved to not go to work.  Apparently unlike most guys, and unfortunately too many women I work with, I would rather raise my kids.  My wife did a great job before she got hurt, and still does all she can, even though I'm doing 80% of the housework these days.

Chicks who work just to have that nicer car and larger house are going to kick themselves in the ass when they realize their kids regard them as checkbooks instead of actual parents.

I am not sure of why you would do the saying of this.  Perhaps if you are not one who is able to refute the findings of these then you should keep the mouth of you in the shut area.  Listen I think it is known by many that the good woman wishes for pleasing the man in the home of she.  If you are not aware of this fact then perhaps it is because you have not done the studying of this.  I will tell you that I have.  In addition to being the beautiful woman I am also one who knows the answer to the question posed by the article of this and that is yes I felt as though I had the pressure for being the powerful person who is by me while the evolutionary selection would suggest I should not do this.

Yeah, it's such a tough gig that the people who do it for money might earn *more* than minimum wage.

If I had kids, I could dig being a house husband. An hour or two of chores while kids are napping or in front of the TV, and keeping them from hurting themselves. I think the worst part would be the boredom and the lack of adult interaction.

rappy: WHAT THE F*CK WAS THAT? Is this English?


Do we have disagreement on this good sir?  Would you wish for the wife of you to do the working?  I do not think you would but she has to do this perhaps to pay for the sardines which are eaten by you because I am told you have once said that you have the fishy taste in the mouth of you so this is what is forcing the wife of you to not do the homestays.

See this is the individual who does the getting of me.  Perhaps sir you would enjoy the good rogering of me by you?  While I am not one who is ready for the sanctimony of the marital unionization I would let it be known that I wish for doing plenty of sexing while not doing the working.  I suppose it could be said that I am ready to settle (going) down.  LAUGHTER OL!

How about you go f*ck yourself instead. It is her choice if she wants to stay at home.
 
2013-05-16 10:54:11 PM
Wife, we both worked, went to night school, and never saw each other, yeah that marriage was a mistake. (She took the dog when she left I still resent that)

2nd Wife, We both worked, she could have stayed home when our daughter was born, but she was a pilot and flying was in her blood so I started working for myself and stayed home our child.  This was really a blessing when she got terminal cancer. (fark you cancer 33 is way to farking young)

3rd and final Wife (as of May 25th if this one doesn't work I am done) she runs a house like June Cleaver on steroids has no interest in working whatsoever.

Not only do I want a career instead of staying at home, I want an entirely separate home from my family. I love them dearly, of course, but they are best loved for short spans of time and often at a distance.
 
2013-05-16 10:55:18 PM
Everyone knows that simultaneously cooking and blowing your man is the way to a happy, lasting marriage and World peace. I manage to balance a full time job, raise my kids, put meals on the table, and do that blowmanship thing on the reg.

Gender roles are real. If you just relax and let it happen, it's actually kind of nice.

Yeah, the "OMG I can't believe you want to be a 'kept woman' " stink coming off TFA was a bit much. As if nobody would ever choose to spend time with their kids instead of hunkering down in a cubicle and paying someone else to spend time with their kids.

Mrs Thunder is finishing up head school, and if she ended up with a high-paying gig I'd happily ease back on my work to be a stay-at-home Dad.

See you seem like quite the person who is liberated from the expectations of the feminist making of society.  I wish I had the courage of you as I would do the quitting of the graduate school tomorrow and leave the roommate of me who if you are not aware is the bigger person and then I would just find the hot man or not hot man because honestly what is the difference of this as I can do the role of me regardless.  Perhaps I should do this.

Women are their own worst enemy that way.


I would love to be a homemaker, mostly because chores always seem to take me half the time they do my SO and i could spend the rest of the day drinking and playing video games.

"Just empty the dishwasher when its done then we dont have to pile stuff in the sink."

"I know but im lazy."

"It takes like 5 minutes to unload the dishwasher!"

"Uh no"

And then she incomprehensibly takes 25 minutes to unload the dishwasher.... whatever, as long as she still thinks im a miracle worker for doing a few extra chores. "When did you find the time to vacuum AND give the dog a bath?!"

Indeed. Sometimes I consider putting a comfy couch in my office and sleeping there some nights. I mean, already maintain my liquor cabinet there so my husband doesn't drink everything up by mixing it with chocolate milk or Diet Pepsi like he would.

Perhaps before making the statement of you it would be the wise thing for considering what is meant to be said by you.  Are you doing the suggestion that the lady of you is not willing to be the SAHM mother of staying homes?

So if you did the taking of the survey of this you would probably have selected the other option.  Perhaps we could do the starting of the business in which we have the escape home for women who wish to get away from the men in the lives of them.  We could call this place Scissortown.

Its 'dependent' in the sense that those things don't pay thr mortgage. It may be grueling work, but it doesn't pay.
