Wurtzel on 1% breeders and feminism

Elizabeth Wurtzel's article, may she rest in peace. I think this article is spot on.

Some great quotes:

Quote
Wurtzel
Seriously: Did Romney actually tell his wife that her job was more important than his? So condescending. If he thought that, he'd be doing it. Being a rich mom -- even with five sons, bless her heart -- is not even sort of a job. Housekeepers there, servants there....

But let's face it: It is not a selective position. A job that anyone can have is not a job, it's a part of life, no matter how important people insist it is (all the insisting is itself overcompensation). Even moms with full-time jobs spend 86 percent as much time with their kids as unemployed mothers, so it is apparently taking up the time of about 14 percent of a paid position. And all the cultish glorification of home and hearth still leaves us in a world where most of the people paid to chef and chauffeur in the commercial world are men. Which is to say, something becomes a job when you are paid for it -- and until then, it's just a part of life.

OH that is such an excellent point.

I know a fem-moo-nist woman who had two kids before age 20 and did marry the father. The marriage was over in two years due to MASSIVE regret on his side. She became a paid advocate for women like herself and to her feminism is all about single moos getting taxpayer support. It seems that she wants women to be "empowered" but to her that requires a boost from society.

There never seems to be talk about avoiding parenthood if it is not something one can afford and to her not wanting kids is an idea that never seemed to cross her mind. She admitted that in her teens she wanted the Leave it Beaver life with the white picket fence and the husband out on the job, but after he came home from the bar, drunk and punched her in the face, thus ending "the fantasy" she became a "radical feminist"

I often thought that if the Red Pill types heard her story it would give them fuel as she seems to have gotten into being independant only after the Leave it Beaver life turned out to be an impossible dream, that she would be a conservative stay at home moo trashing the feminist types she became had the guy she married decades ago been a money'd guy.
