Someone asked what the biggest stumbling blocks were for balancing work and parenting... someone else (anonymous) answered that no one else picks up the slack as much as she would if it was the other way around... That's probably true for allot of women!!
She elaborated saying: "women have been able to adapt and take on previously dominated male gender roles yet the male of our species has not yet evolved and we (women) feel the brunt of that."
... Now, I am all for women being in whatever career they want. I have one SIL who's a high-powered lawyer and her husband is a work-from-home Dad... So they have what I consider "non-traditional" roles and I see how much they thrive in that situation.
So - I think ALL people should be able to choose the path in life that fits them best.
However, why is it that anyone would expect an entire gender to "evolve" ... why can't we accept them, and ourselves, as we are? Why is there this angst about being "more than" our mothers, grandmothers, and 100s of generations before them? Were they not good enough?
two things come to mind...
1) why cant some of these "men need to evolve" woman accept when woman WANT to stay home and live the traditional role. I said 'some' because some, and it seems to be the very vocal ones, are all about women's rights and then cant accept when a woman exercises her rights to stay home.
2) I think men NEED to be men. A 'real' man WILL do what is needed to make a home run... but why do some, again it seems to be the same gals, need them to evolve? As I said a "real' man will do what is needed to make a house a home... it is instinctual. But if a woman cant handle a real man and chooses a wuss because she needed to have that superiority thing going, instead of a partnership. Then she will ALWAYS have issues with him not doing what she feels is needed... because she choose poorly.
