I posted this in another thread, but I think it might be a good discussion on its own, so..

I'm always amazed at how woman here jump to the conclusion that because a family does not struggle and makes a pretty good living that the woman must be "bitches" and "shitty human beings".

What about simply having hard working husbands who are driven ... Or even better why not the woman themselves being the hard workers and being driven?

Why aren't the woman that are out their making a "good" living being show cased as role models for our daughters? Why aren't they examples of worthy life parnters for our sons?

I dunno where you get that from but from a post last night apparently you are a loser if you are not working the top payest job in the country with a PHD. And you are nothing if you choose to work in a career that requires less than a masters or BAS. SMH

Because, in most of those cases they are the sort who can't stand when someone is doing 'better' than them. I don't get it either, I'm legitimately happy for others when they are doing well, but many seem to try to drag them down so they feel better about themselves. *shrug*

I've noticed we're called snobs, but that's probably just because I am a snob.

Women here think if you don't make decent money you're horrible parents. They think if your a,sahm and your hubby makes good money , you're a stuck up bitch and lazy. You cannot win here. I'm thrilled with my life and apologize to nobody. If I'm a bitch and whatever...then so be it. You can't win in this group. Just live your life and screw others on here.
