Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #39)

40. Pretty interesting article...

This part, though I found very interesting.

“What every mom wants is time with her kids, financial security and a sense of identity,” says Morgan Steiner. “When you feel like you don’t have enough of any of those things and you see a woman who has made different choices than you, it’s easy to point fingers. We’re all looking for “having it all” in our own lives and not finding it… And that’s the moment when we start thinking it’s better on the other side of the fence.”


Funny, that first sentence could have mom replaced with dad and be just as true.

I think the culture of "having it all" is the problem. We'd all like to have our cake and eat it too, but to aspire to that as an achievable goal and represent it in popular culture as an achievable goal is ludicrous. If one had infinite time and infinite control and infinite resources, sure, we could have it all, but we don't so we make choices and live with their consequence.

Put another way, life's hard... for everybody... except for those who read Forbes, apparently.
