Why Are Feminists (Both Women AND Men) So AFRAID of Housewives and Mothers?

What is wrong with men today? Now, before you click off my story because you think this is another article trashing men, hold tight. I don't mean all men, I mean the hundreds of men I've been arguing with all day telling ME that I should be offended by what Harrison Butker said during his Commencement speech at a Catholic college. Apparently, feminist men think they are perfectly within their right to lecture me about how I should be more than JUST a housewife or a mother. 

No, I'm not making this up. Heck, go look at my insane timeline today if you want to see what I'm talking about (@politibunny). 

Seems these men think being a mother, wife, homemaker, etc. is beneath women and that Butker telling young women that it's ok not to only focus on having a career was somehow sexist ... or something. If I'm being completely honest my brain is tired as I have been arguing with these brain-trusts for most of the day.

They are especially mad because Butker told women they are being lied to. And he was right, women are lied to every day.

  • We're told men can be women.
  • We're told if we don't want confused, mediocre, mentally-ill men in our spaces we're bigots and that's just too damn bad.
  • We're told our rights are tied to the deaths of our most innocent.
  • We're told being wives and mothers is lazy and beneath us.
  • We're told men have no place in their homes or communities.We're told we must tear men down to be equal.
  • We're told if we don't vote a certain way we are voting against our own best interests.

I just don't get it, you guys. The year I spent being a stay-at-home mom was one I have always cherished. Not to mention I worked harder that year than I did at any other job I've ever had, including this one. Hey, I love my job (and our readers, especially you VIP types!), but getting up every day and raising an exceptional human being? Nothing is more rewarding than that.

Or harder.

So why do feminists hate housewives and stay-at-home moms so much? When did it become anti-feminist and even anti-woman to fill this role in a family? By our own nature, women are nurturers - there is nothing more powerful than creating life, ya' know? Regardless of how much our insane pals on the Left like to say otherwise, only a woman can have a baby. Men, no matter how many hormones or surgeries they have, cannot have a baby. 

Nope.

That women are able to carry, deliver, and raise a human being is freaking AMAZING, don't you think? There is nothing more meaningful in this life ... and anyone pretending it's a weakness or sexist for women to embrace this part of ourselves needs to kindly STFU.

Yes, I am a managing editor for Twitchy and work at least 40 hours every week, but I am also a wife married to the same man for 25 years (!!!), and the mother of two exceptional human beings who I love more than myself, who I cherish and feel blessed to be their mother.

How that is not the absolute EPITOME of feminism is beyond me.
