I would never have taken childrearing on if I'd only considered it a task - it's part of what makes me me.
Living amongst a throng of engineers (:smileysurprised: how do you like my plural engineer choice from rocket island) I love how
I have never considered being a mother as my identity since I always had a career outside the home, but what was surprising to me after I had my first child is that I actually WANTED to take more time off than I was allowed to.
I have NEVER felt that being a mother was my "identity", HOWEVER, I see scrubbing the toilet as a "necessary task", and child-rearing as somewhat more than that. There are several ways to make women more financially powerful, and socially dominant, but they do NOT include making child-rearing just a "necessary task".

It's sad that employers are still asking women those types of personal questions, but not men.
Yeah, it's kinda wild having both dh and I having math degrees (and physics and EE for me, and more math and business for dh) and ds hates math!
