a few weeks after i had my son, i began to look for a new group to join as the pregnancy group i was in just didn't seem to fit anymore. i thought that when i joined the raising boys group that i would find other mothers who had sons and wanted to share the joys and pains of raising them. instead, i feel like at least half of the things i read in this group are misogynistic and filled with overly masculine stereotypes of how our kids should act. i didn't realize i was joining a group about how girls are the inferior, harder to deal with child and how our boys should be men and not children. we have stripped our children of their innocence and i find that appalling. raising boys should be about the trials and tribulations of raising that sex of child, not forcing them to mold to the gender stereotype that society has laid out for them. i have decided to leave the group. maybe this is just my ultra-liberal side, but i highly doubt it. i think its just common sense.
