Try to come up with one thing about WOH that you admit is probably true (if you are SAH).

Let's try not to follow what we say with all the exceptions to it. Just be honest and admit if there is something from the opposite side you agree with. If you can't think of anything, then I guess this thread isn't for you.
For me, I admit that hour for hour, I don't do as much actual, measureable work as my husband does and that my work as a SAHM is more leisurely than his job. I admit that if something happened to him that he couldn't work, I would be hard pressed to be able to go out and earn the same income he did, having been out of the work force for so long.
I admit that I personally benefit from some women who WOH, my ob/gyn for example.
The women here who have my most respect and admiration are the single working moms. You truly have the hardest job in the world. All the issues we debate here must sound pretty silly to you when you truly have to be all and do all for your kids and it doesn't matter what is fair or equal or choice. You just roll up your sleeves and do what you have to do. I respect you for it.
