I saw this clip on my homepage yesterday and I'm not sure how to take it....  Male Chauvinist or just being honest?

I don't see chauvinistic. Nothing he said was about being a man or woman. Honestly, he sounds a little obsessive and anxious. I can actually relate. I was a Sahm for 12 years, completely dedicated to my children, but the way my mind works, no matter what I am doing, I'm usually thinking about other things I should or could be doing. Now that I work full time, I always fell the pull from what I'm not doing.

He is being honest. I am sure if you ask most men or women, with successful careers and children, they would say the same.

Sounds honest to me, which is refreshing. I didn't see him putting down SAHMs at all --- just sayin's he's not SAHD material. Not many men are, actually!

  Honest. I do not see any male chauvinisim at all.
