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.
