9. I'm waiting for the headline "Women are human beings with individual
wants, needs and desires". Now *that* would be a revolutionary finding. :eyes:

I will chime in again that, for me personally as an individual human being, the thought of being a stay-at-home mom would equal suicide. Someday, maybe, some researcher somewhere will realize that just because one is a woman doesn't mean one is the same as every other woman.
