Okay, but where is the "selfishness"?
Fifty years ago, women didn't generally work outside the home. Should we go back to that as "normal"? Well, we'd lose almost half of our workforce if we did.
Perhaps we should go back to horses and buggies? I mean, these days there are just so many gosh darn choices in travel. In my grandpappy's day, we never traveled more than 30 miles from home. So why should we travel more than 30 miles from home today?
There are more choices available to people today in terms of careers, travel, medicine, and, yes, whether or not to have children. You can thank birth control for that.
A hundred years ago, 1/3 of women died in childbirth. I bet many women back then would have decided to have fewer kids or no kids if they had the choice.
You sound a bit fembotty dear.
Do you really feel that strongly about all this?
You are right though ...our economy is addicted to large numbers of moms in the workforce. Sudden withdrawal would be painful.
Why do women have careers and men have jobs or work?
Why do women need validating beyond being good wives and moms? I get my validation from being a good dad-husband-provider....truthfully I don't even seek validation...I just do it...like Nike.
Oh well...name your dinosaur..me.
more culture stuff, have you seen this?
Well, we'd lose almost half of our workforce if we did.
Wages would then increase.
I'm going to say that is not accurate the way it is stated.
