Younger Women Sick Of Feminists Demands

Bookmark and Share

Women are getting fed up with being told by the feminist movement that they have to have both a career and a family and that they can go it alone without a worthless husband.

From a piece entitled "Desperate to be housewives: young women yearn for 1950s role as stay-at-home mums" in the The Independent we have these notable items.

They are the generation of women who grew up expecting to have it all. No longer forced to choose between children and a career, they were set to embrace superwomanhood by doing both - while holding down a perfect relationship and keeping a spotless home in their spare time.


Research into the attitudes of 1,500 women with an average age of 29 found that 61 per cent believe “domestic goddess” role models who juggle top jobs with motherhood and jet-set social lives are “unhelpful” and “irritating”. More than two-thirds agree that the man should be the main provider in a family, while 70 per cent do not want to work as hard as their mother’s generation. On average, the women questioned want to “settle down” with their partner by 30 and have their first child a year later.

Vicki Shotbolt, deputy chief executive of the National Family and Parenting Institute, said: “This is the generation of young women who have seen the ‘have it all’ ethos up close and personal, and they have realised that it doesn’t work.

Guess the women found it isn't so great to be a guy. You figure that would have been obvious with our average life-span being years shorter than theirs, but sometimes it takes 30 years or so to see the obvious.

The real problem is that women have screwed themselves by demanding this of men. Now they can't get out of it because men expect them to want to work and take care of the kids, etc…

Women of this generation are going to have a hell of a time convincing the guys that they're perfectly happy at home. Don't worry though, in another 30 years they'll change their mind and go back to wanting it all again. Just like retro 70's clothes, women's attitude changes just as much as fashion it seems.

One thing is certain though; men will never be able to understand what the hell women want. It is an elusive target that changes every few years. To all of you women out there reading this, it isn't a sexist attack, it is just what I have seen throughout my life and something young men continue to struggle with each generation.

Why anyone would want to have a career, raise kids, have a spouse and expect to have friends and girls night's out, healthy life, no stress and extra spending money I have no idea. It's hard enough having a job, coming home to the kids and helping them with their homework, spending some time with a spouse and having a small hobby. Why you would want to add onto that a pile of other concerns is beyond me.

Women want different things at different times. But my advice to both men and women is to TALK HONESTLY TO EACH OTHER. A lot of women believe it is expected of them to be highly successful career women to be "valid" when they'd really rather take the time to take the baby to the park and make cupcakes for the kindergarten class. They actually feel men will sneer at them for such domestic desires.


I'm SO sorry some of my sisters bought into the whole Steinham schtick of the 70's. I was lucky enought to be a full-time homemaker for a tad over 16 years, and while my life did a 180 due to a divorce, I'd never trade those years of PTA/Band Booster/Soccer mom/Homework consultant for anything.

I don't believe that so much as I believe women are afraid other women will sneer at them. Women seem to hold the opinion of what other women think of them higher than what a man will think.

There's not too many men out there that are going to sneer at their wife because she wants to stay home and take care of his kids and make sure they're brought up healthy and intelligent.
