In today’s misandrist feminism dominated world, many women denigrate, disrespect, and condescend to traditional women who choose to stay at home in order to take care of their children and manage the household. I’ve seen it with my own eyes several times.
My mom was trained as a physician, but she decided to stay at home for more than a decade to take care of my siblings and I. Women condescended to her all the time and imagined that she was only staying at home because my dad forced her to or because she couldn't handle “real work”. This couldn't be farther from the truth. Most of these women had bullshit jobs primarily to feed their ego more than anything else. Contrary to popular feminist opinions, taking care of the household, maintaining a good marriage, and raising children to be healthy, well adjusted, responsible, and productive is real work.
I think it's rather hilarious that working outside the home for a boss who doesn't give a shit about you is “empowering”, but raising and nurturing the babies you created isn't. Why have children if some nanny or daycare employee is going to raise them? Anyways, I digress.
Two of my aunts, a cousin, my sister in-law, and few of my friend’s wives are denigrated by feminists all the time because they are stay at home wives and mothers.
Being a stay at home wife and mother is a very difficult job. The fact that such an important role is casually derided by so many is an unfortunate development in my opinion.
