12-year-old girl: I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society: You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
16-year-old girl: I'm pregnant.
Society: How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
20-year-old woman: I'm a single mother with an infant son.
Society: You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
33-year-old woman: I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
Society: You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
45-year-old woman: I just had my first child.
Society: Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
60-year-old woman: I haven't had any children.
Society: Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
"Feminism and equality are not the same thing....
fervidcapharnaum: k-dev: Definition of feminism noun [mass noun] the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. It must be so hard being a white straight male. Your rights must be so violated so often by women wanting gender equality. Besides, the argument is bullshit : feminists keep pointing out how patriarchy alienates men as well.
Did anyone notice...
thesuperjew: Obama mentions his wife in his victory speech: “…The woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago” Romney mentions his wife in his concession speech: “… The woman I chose to marry” It’s amazing how someone’s views on equality can come out in one simple sentence
