I grew up a typical liberal tree-hugging feminist girl. You know, the hardcore pro-choice type. I swore I’d never get married, have babies, be a stay-at-home mom, or drive a mini-van. That would mean a man was keeping me down! I would never allow that. Men, especially those God-awful white males, have been keeping us women down for far too long. Then I grew up and realized the truth. Not only that I changed: I’m pro-life, married, mother of two, drive a mini-van and I stay at home despite having a BA. How dare I! I gave into the MAN. I should be ashamed. My husband must have brainwashed me somehow. I’m his slave.
I’m still a feminist. A true feminist. I consider those belonging to NOW and other far left women’s rights organizations to be “neo-feminists.” They want women to believe that they’re STILL being oppressed by the MAN. (By the way, who the hell is this MAN they keep talking about?) They want us to shun everything we should be proud of. I used to think pregnancy was a curse, a punishment from God for Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden. Boy was I wrong. We can do whatever a man can do, but we have them upped by 1. We get to make LIFE. Without us, humans wouldn’t be able to survive. Yes, sperm from males are needed, but the woman’s uterus is an absolute MUST. Without the uterus, a life cannot grow. Being pregnant made me realize that pregnancy should be considered a gift, a blessing. Yes it is unpleasant most of the time (my pregnancy with my first was absolutely horrible from beginning to end), but the outcome is completely worth it. During both pregnancies my husband told me many times he was jealous because I was able to feel and bond with the girls 24/7. Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, can top feeling a baby move inside you. Life begins at conception. The very first ultrasound of Janet at six weeks changed my view on abortion. She was barely the size of a grain of rice yet her heartbeat was so strong. I saw and heard her fantastic heartbeat and I thought, “How can anyone deny that is a life? How can anyone deny that is a child?”
(Before I start this I realize that due to high cost of living some families are forced to have two working parents. I am extremely lucky and grateful I’m able to stay at home and if a family can have a stay-at-home parent, they should.) During the pregnancy, I was determined to work despite my husband having an incredibly well-paying job. I wanted to keep my identity, and to me, my job let me do that. It wasn’t until the end when I was visiting day cares I realized one of us should stay at home with our daughter. The obvious choice was me because Zac makes more money than me. In all honesty, it doesn’t have to be the mother to stay home. I really do think a parent should stay at home with the kid. The mother should be the one, though, because by nature we are the nurturers. I can hear the neo-feminists going off saying I’ve been drugged or forced to say that. Fact is you CANNOT deny science. There are biological differences between males and females. It is our biology to nurture. It is in our nature to comfort and love. We are wired for that. I knew it was important for my daughter for me to stay home with her. I’m the one teaching her right from wrong. I’m the one who is raising her. It’s the hardest job in the world, but the most rewarding.
This will drive the neo-feminists crazy. Get this: My husband allowed me to CHOOSE what to do! I know, right? Isn’t that CRAZY?!? I must be lying about that. Well, I hate to burst your bubble neo-feminists, but he did. He had NO PROBLEM when I told him I wanted to stay at work. Anytime I get stressed and claim I want to go back to work, he supports me. My husband, the MAN, the awful white male, allows ME to decide what I want to do with my life. Crazy insane talk.
Thing is, how can any woman deny that being a mother and a stay-at-home mother is not what we’re supposed to be doing? How can they argue that this is not what we’re meant to be? It’s the most important job in the world. We are continuing the human race and shaping our children. Why is it so outrageous that women become mothers and stay home? Because we’re not making an impact on the world? We are! Being a mom and stay-at-home mother makes a HUGE impact on the world. I can make a much bigger impact and difference in the world being a mother and stay-at-home mother than I could being a teacher or president of the United States. I’m raising my children in the best possible way. I’m teaching them manners, right from wrong, and educating them.
It’s nature. It’s science. You cannot fight or deny either. Try all you want, but it won’t work. Females have always had the upper hand against males. We just never realized it because the neo-feminists want to make evil the ONE thing that makes us females special: Pregnancy.
I am a true feminist. A true feminist embraces and loves what makes us female and that is the ability to form and grow life. Pregnancy is not a curse or punishment. Pregnancy is quite possibly the best thing in the world and only females are allowed to experience it.
You’re wrong neo-feminists. It’s not the MAN that is keeping females down. It’s YOU. As long as you fight or deny your biology and nature, you’re keeping females from reaching their potential.
