Militants - are they for real?

Someone on another board posted this link.
http://blogs.babycenter.com/celebrities/2009/04/12/dr-laura-says-all-moms-should-stay-at-home/?scid=momstodd_20090414_A:2&pe=2U8vYLf
It's about Dr. Laura saying that all women should be SAHMs until the child is at least 3 years old.

Whether we're talking about working or staying at home, I can't quite wrap my head around what is going on inside the brains of people that apply the phrase "all women should".

Do you think militants are actually serious, or just trying to get a rise out of others?

>> all women should ultimately be viewed as dependents who never intent to contribute financially to the household. <<

Or will do so only until they get knocked up.

>> I think what it teaches everyone, men and women, is that their lives are typecast for them, and there are few (if any) options in life. If you are a woman, you are to raise your children and serve your man...and if you're a man, you will go out and earn a living and support your family. <<

While this would not be my choice, there are IRL people who believe this, and practice it, and seem happy with it. I think there might even be one or two on this board who would fall into this category?

The older I get, the more I realize that there are far more shades of gray than there are pure black and white ways to look at/approach an issue.

>> No, it is true that bad parenting does not get any better for being done for many years. <<

However, I do think that a good or even just mediocre parent can get better over time.

No silly, you just THINK you are happy and successful. Really, you're not.

Exactly. I used to be very extreme in my way of thinking, but life has thrown some curveballs at me that really ended up shaping my view on a lot of issues.

I found this part to be interesting....


WSJ: At what point do you advise mothers to go back to work?


Dr. Schlessinger: The answer is never. One woman asked me the other day when I think mothers should be home, and I told her, "Whenever your kid is at home." When Deryk started kindergarten, it was from 8 to 3. So I arranged to be on the air from 11 to 2. That was it. He always had a mom. Quite frankly, my mom was one of the least warm mommies out there. Nonetheless, when I came home from school, she was always there and it made me feel safe.


So again with the unique definitions of sahm,

That is interesting.

So is this "He always had a mom."

Uh, DD always has a mom. This doesnt waiver whether I'm at work or sitting next to her, or upstairs while she's downstairs. I'm still her mom and she still "has" me. I felt the same way with my mom, who started out as a SAHM, but then turned into a WOHM. The feeling that I had a mom, never changed for me.
