How many of you have told your SO to "stuff it"?

I have noticed today a lot of people complaining about how there SO downs them because they are a SAHM. Why do you put up with it? When I first got married I was a SAHM. My SO never realized the extremes I went through and often said cruel things. I got pissed and told him if it was so easy he can do it. I did not drive at all at the time, so on the weekends at 5 AM I would walk to a friends house and stay all weekend. I made sure to call DH at 7 before the kids woke up and informed him I would be gone but did not let him know where I was. (I basically spent the weekend worrying my a$$ off.) I got home sunday night to a whole lot of I'm sorrys.

Not that anyone else need to go to this extreme, however, why do you let him treat you like you do? Adults can be taught to behave differently than they do, have any of you downtrodden SAHM ever once just told him to stick his opinions where the sun don't shine?
