This is loaded.
- Dad deprived children can also happen when dad is physically in the house but emotionally unavailable. Or when he is working so hard to be the provider, 80 hour weeks, multiple jobs, etc, that he sees his kids rarely. He means well, but the kids are still deprived.
- There really isn’t that much of a risk to dying in childbirth anymore. You can’t compare that to the risk of men dying in war. And childbirth is something nearly all women will go through, especially back in the “days of old” as compared to war which depends greatly upon if you were a a young man during a bad point in world affairs. In other words, something most women will go through vs. something some men will go through.
- The woman’s movement can be seen in another way–it helped women be financially independent so they didn’t have to settle for a man they weren’t attracted to for security. The reason why it seems like in the “days of old” that women weren’t as picky or married lower ranking males more often is because they HAD to for financial and social reasons. Everyone loves to pile onto the unmarried 40ish career woman, but hey she is doing men a lot of favors be staying single. She isn’t wasting a man’s time or money by settling for security.
- It “sole breadwinner” not “soul breadwinner”. Teachers these days…..
- If feminism stole anything then the so called stronger sex need to find their balls and take back what belongs to them and stop whining like kids on the playground, “She stole my ball”.
- Options for women and men are the best way to tell if someone is making a truly moral choice. Once women multiple children, with no education or job skills, they really are stuck in their marriage. When times get tough, such in the case of Anna Duggar, its easy to write romantically about what a godly, moral woman she is for staying. BUT if she or any other woman had the choice to leave knowing that her kids would be fully provided for and she would not be outcasted by all her friends and family, would they make another choice? I am not saying that other choice is good or better, but you can’t put people on a pedestal claiming they are so moral (or committed) when they don’t have the option to choose to not to be moral (or committed).
