I was never the one who would fight for feminist issues. I am very conservative
person who likes to have the things the way they were decades ago. I love Helen Andelin
and her book "Fascinating womanhood." I wish I could have her lifestyle. I would love
to be a full-time wife and mother, to take care of my husband's needs and raise my
children on my own without any outside help. Unfortunately for me, life is not about that
Women nowadays have to be independent to feel secure and fulfilled. Me on the
other hand no. I don't want to have a career, I don't like to leave my baby at home when
mommy has to work. I have a hard time understanding women who say that they regret
being a stay-at-home mom. To be a stay-at-home mom is the luxury for me. I wish me
and my husband could afford it.
I also don't understand how women can work and men can be stay-at-home dads.
Why our roles switched so dramatically. Why can't there be a middle ground? Why do
we have to do extreme things that don't feel natural to me. There is the reason why
society have MEN things and WOMEN things, because we are so different. I am not
saying that one is better the other one is worse. Just different. I never saw a woman
competing with man on the Olympic games just because physically men are so much
stronger. In my lifetime I saw three families(American) with stay-at-home dads
unfortunately all of them ended up being divorced.
I don't understand it but I except it. Every one should live the life the way they
want. I just wish I wouldn't be judged based on my believes. I often get labeled as "lazy",
"no personality", "no self-esteem" when I share my thoughts. One might say I have to
resocialize to fit our new world. But I don't feel like it. I just want to be respected for who
I am. And
