I hear everyone fight for women to have rights well shouldn't taking care of there families be one of them if they are able to do so?
I'm going to say something equally unpopular. I do not like "stay-at-home" moms. I have little respect for them (they don't respect themselves) and I would not have one as a friend. It has been my experience that the few girls I grew up with who became "stay-at-home" moms fulfilled one or all of these criteria
:
1. They were uncommonly lazy and could not only not get up for work, but also didn't work when they were there.

2. They only went to college to find well-off men that would take care of them and allow them to keep up with well-off family and friends.

3. They married jealous/religious scumballs that felt that their wives must stay at home so they can maintain control of them or can prevent them from being around other men.

4. They are women that are often "loose" in morals and must be "controlled" by being kept at home as they have no ability to respect the boundaries of a relationship and would only get involved with other men at work.

5. They have no personality of their own and have no basic need to contribute to society.

6. They married religious nuts and conform to their husband's religious beliefs due to their having no personality of their own.

I also believe its sick to have more than two children even if one can afford it (looking at you Duggers), and although I realize that it was the norm for only men to work in the 50s and early 60s, I also know that corporate tax rates at those times was 40% and unions were at the strongest allowing for high wages and development in infrastructure which created a prosperity that allowed for one-income homes.

This might not be a popular opinion but I stand by it. As I said, the women I have known who "stay-at-home" fulfill most of the criteria I listed above. I've even seen women ruin truly decent men working their butts off for them to provide a better life by leaving them for men solely because those men can afford to keep them as a trophy wife so they never have to do real work.

Get a job ladies. Hillary and Elizabeth are making you look bad.

That is NOT fair! If a mother can afford and want to stay home and raise their kids, they should have that right. And stop with the labeling.
I respect Leighla more than I can say, having a special needs child and wants to stay home and help that child.
And you fucking men should keep your nose out of our business.
You go our and bang these women, they get pregnant, you won't support the child and bitch because she is on welfare because her job at the hamburger joint won't cover shit!

Leighla, I'm sorry you have to read all this bullshit. You have the hardest job there is. If one of these asses had do do half what you do, they would die.

It's a two-way street. I take birth control and have never had unprotected sex outside of a committed relationship, so I don't see how it is always the man's fault. If women around here were a little more selective, more aware of who they are, and less needy than perhaps there wouldn't be a problem.

I stick to what I stated earlier. I have (unfortunately) known many "stay-at-home" moms and what I said about them is generally 100% true. There are special circumstances (as with a special needs child), but in general stay-at-home moms are lazy gold diggers.

I value my education, my career, my spouse, and my children and we are all better for my developing myself in terms of education, career, and personality. I feel that is what makes a good mother, not staying at home.

I agree with Susan. I once stayed at home and took care of the housework, dishes, dinner, etc., while also taking care of the physical duties (yard work, painting, etc,) over almost a year's period while my partner worked fulltime and I looked for a job.

Even after I got a good job, I STILL did all of the things listed above with no problem because staying at home and caring for a child IS NOT WORK NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU WANT IT TO BE.

In most cases, stay at home moms are, like Susan said, lazy princesses and brats who are okay with giving up their personal development and personality in order to be taken care of.

Women SHOULD be like Hillary Clinton, Marrisa Mayer or Tina Fey. You can have a career, your own personality, and still be a good mom.

If you don't want to be the one raising your kids that is your business. I bet it would drive you insane to have to deal with them all day much better for you to pay someone else to do it

Sure there are a lot of working moms and stay at home moms that are wonderful mothers. There are a lot of working moms who after working all day go home and feed the kids fast food and in return we have a bunch of obese kids running around but hey if that's what America wants for there kids them all must be well

I envy you. I lived in Calif. raising my kids. Working 10 hrs. a day, trying to make it home for soccer practice, dance recitals, girls and boys scouts, etc. was tough. And you're right, having a sit down dinner was tough for us. Plus all the other stuff like cleaning, shopping etc.. At times I felt so guilty not being able to spend more time with them. But, by the grace of God, we made it through with the most wonderful kid I could ever pray for.
You hang in there and don't let these idiots get to you. You and I know what's important. When they are able to have an 7 lb. Baby come out their penis, then they can talk. Lol

When I worked while having a child at home I still came home and made backed chicken breasts (marinated the night before), stir fry, and other healthy foods (except chili -- chili isn't very healthy) almost every evening and didn't rely on fast food except on special occasions.

I'm basing my beliefs regarding stay at home moms based on my own experiences with staying at home (while looking for work), and based on those stay at home moms I have known (lazy, no personality or individuality, desire to be controlled by their hubby etc.).

I have known some GREAT women and none of them would EVER stay at home. Now granted, they were scientists, research techs, and published writers, etc., and they might have had to work less than full time while their child is young, but they were all determined to show their children the importance of being self-sufficient with an independent personality while contributing to society in a meaningful way.

Hell, the single worst person I have EVER know is a stay at home mom: lazy, shallow, dependent, superficial, fake, obsessed with social stature, etc.). Such women are the types that marry immoral conservative men that fight decent wages, access to healthcare, and policies that would end childhood poverty.

I understand that WV is filled with worthless and lazy women that everything for nothing, but all one need do is look at Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Palosi, etc. to see the importance on not being some coddling worthless stay-at-home mom who sets a bad example for her children.

As a working mother who has been able to raise two children while working full time and finishing a Masters, I have no sympathy for stay at home moms. I hate to say it but I agree with what a lot of you are saying about them. For the most part they tend to be lazy and simply want an excuse to not have to work. They also like the image it conveys that they come from a household that so affluent that they dont need to work.

Leighla, sounds like the same dipshit, changing their name. Wonder who that may be? NO mother at the end of their life would say, I'm sorry I didn't work more and stay home with my children less. If they did, they weren't a "mother".

It's funny how we disagree on political shit, but how great is it that being mothers, we can see through anything! Being a mother and grand mother is the greatest blessing we can have. It cuts through all the other bullshit. Just remember, they will never have this bond and they don't have a friggin clue.
