You have said time and again that these women need to get off their butts and get a job. Do you routinely show up at their houses when they do with a brass statue? Neither do I.
I guess being employed or "breadwinner" as you put it should only be lauded if the person has a penis. If they don't....they are just doing what society expects.
Having a job doesn't make anybody special. Providing for a family doesn't either. It is what is EXPECTED of an adult.
I am glad that my husband doesn't have an ego so fragile that I need to congratulate him for waking up in the morning and going to work. I am glad that my ego isn't so fragile that I need to get warm fuzzies from him that I am so amazing because I work full time.
