Having it All is a Middle Class Myth

They don’t seem to have noticed how middle-class they are, these female authors telling us that we can have our children, a full-time job, and love it.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am all for women having careers if they want to. We need female doctors, teachers, shopkeepers, cleaners, you name it, to keep our society human. Nor am I against the middle-class. I belong there myself. What I do object to is assuming that all women are the same, and that any woman can “have it all” without damage to family and home…

They outsource and have servants. There aren’t enough hours in the day. I’d rather be a poor worker than a poor mother. Mother is a valuable and crucial job itself. It should be respected.

uhuh hmm o really rlly doubt eyebrow flash lara croft

Forgive the dejected tone, I’ve had the stuffing knocked out of me by a combination of work duties, paperwork errors, EU bureaucracy including the CHR (long story), family complaints, friends attention-seeking because it’s summer, the police (not a bad thing), noisy neighbours currently blasting bad techno music, that SCOTUS rainbow crap on social media, a somewhat minor health quibble and another redpill writer channelling Freud at me. Within the past few days.  I am exhausted. I want to curl up in a darkened room and forget the world exists.

It used to be that all working class women were working mothers. They had to be. They’d scoff if told that was a choice or a good thing.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
