I had a woman at a gas station a month ago tell me how sweet it was that I had the kids so mom could get some rest.

It's not merely "political correctness" when it happens to you, right?

Trevor wrote:IMNSHO, there are only two things women can do in parenting that men cannot: gestation and lactation.

Everything else is up to the initiative one takes to be the best parent s/he can be. And the risks s/he takes if that concept of "best parent" serves to offload the parenting to the other parent while earning solely all the income.



Actually, men CAN lactate.

I've been thinking of a thing lately. Something has always bugged me and I couldn't verbalize, or specifically describe what it is. But I think I figured it out.

Feminist movement (not said with some kind of venomous undertone) or 'modern woman' or new age society or whatever, says women can do whatever men can do. Cool.

Says women have been prevented from being professionals, from going to school, have been repressed and forced to stay at home where they sacrifice their career and life goals for their family. Ok.

This shift in society has had some pretty significant effects already, among them that men are less-employed, go to college and graduate much less then women now, and there is a boom in medication for behavior disorders, hugely in boys, not girls.

But forget all that. In court, high wage earner has to pay back the 'sacrifice' the low wage earner made in their career abilities. So we have spousal support.

But if it was really about the kids, then who made the bigger sacrifice? The mom, who gave up some years working to be with the kids, or the dad, who gave up some years with the kids so he could make money for the kids?

Which is more valuable - the money, or the kids?

So who lost out - the parent who lost some time making money, or the parent who lost time with the kids?

Dads (or whichever parent is the high wage earner) sacrifice a lot more by working for the family outside the home, than moms do who 'sacrifice' to keep working inside the home.
