63. well it's a pretty good clue that you are unemployable and considered of no value to society
i will make no comment on intelligence, i don't think intelligence in women is considered to be of any great value, at least it is not valued in america BUT if you stay at home, there is clearly a huge problem somewhere

what adult would choose to be a helpless dependent if they had guts and a brain?

being a stay at home mom is the booby prize and a way to cover one's pride and not admit that you couldn't really earn, successful women easily balance both but the odds are so stacked against success for women that i don't ever blame anyone for not working, if your skills/brains/ talents are not valued and you can't worked, the world is as it is...

but, yes, there is a certain % of women who don't work because they have serious issues w. mental illness, addiction,e tc. there is no use pretending that the world is better off because they're sitting at home "watching" the kids while smoking crack

at the end of the day, what example would you set for your kids? do you really want to teach your daughter that she has to be dependent on a man to put bread in her mouth? no we all know that's a shit example, if you're a stay at home mom it is not because you think that's a good example to set, it's a terrible one that even if it's OK for you could v. easily lead to your daughter being an abuse victim...we all know this...girls MUST get an example that women can be strong but sometimes the world says fuck you, i'm not gonna let you work, so you have to put a brave face on it

so, i'm not saying "unintelligent" but what stay at home mom do you know who doesn't have some serious issue that kept her from being a success? it doesn't have to be stupidity, it prob. isn't, maybe she's a genius who didn't sleep w. the right professor or the right mentor and is now forever unemployable...many other times it's physical or mental illness

nature intended for women to raise children and be able to feed the child too, any women who can't do that, look (and it isn't usu. too hard) to see...she has an issue, it may not be her fault, in this world it prob. isn't but it's still not a "choice"

the women i hear bleating about how they "chose" to stay home are invariably fundy crazies who don't mind indoctrinating their daughters in fundy crazy hood and it's apparent to everyone but them that they chose nothing, their religious hysteria "chose" for them
