While scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed I stumbled upon Crowley Party’s response to an outrageous article I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry. This self-titled “powerhouse” Amy Glass has managed to anger a whole range of individuals, not just the young wives and mothers she has openly attempted to target. Flicking through Amy’s other articles has made me realise that this is just the mindless opinion of a lonely and envious feminist who believes you can’t have the best of both worlds. Yes personal attack and no, I’m not sorry.
“Do people really think that a stay at home mom is really on equal footing with a woman who works and takes care of herself?”
Quite frankly, yes I do! Not only does a stay at home mum WORK and take care of herself, but she also cares for her husband and children. Caring does not solely equal providing money, clearly the real definition of this word has escaped Amy’s small mind. To care is to feel concern or interest; attach importance to something or look after and/or provide for the needs of. Yes, money can be regarded as something we need, however primarily concerning money as our sole need only encourages a person to become emotionless, materialistic and to forget the true value of a relationship.
“You will never have the time, energy, freedom or mobility to be exceptional if you have a husband and kids.”
Here in Australia, most mothers and wives do have a career. The ones that don’t will sought after it once their children are old enough to attend school or full time care. You call yourself a feminist, Amy Glass, but you seem to believe that it is impossible for a woman to be a mother, wife and successful career woman at once. Where is your faith in our abilities? Or are you really so lonely, insecure and envious of the women who have it all that you have resorted to attacking them?
I am not at all against those women who choose not to have children or get married. In fact, I praise you. I believe this is a personal choice – all of which should be respected no matter how different it is to your own. However, I am outraged that a person who has made their choice has the nerve to attack those who have different values. This is not an attack on your personal choice but one on the lack of respect you have for anyone else who chooses to live their life differently.
You seem to forget that you yourself were brought into this world by a mother. Yes Amy, a mother! Without her, you and your pitiful articles would not exist. The real point of having kids is not to relieve loneliness, but to continue the existence of the human race. If all women decided to choose a career over becoming a mother and wife, humans would rapidly become extinct. How does one not know the simplest of scientific facts? This proves how uneducated you are, Amy. I truly feel sorry for you.
