Cherie Blair has made a speech denigrating the lifestyle choice of women who stay at home and look after the children.
While I advocate work and self reliance for women and would have a problem not working (I enjoy my work too much), I also do not want or have children. But it is not my place to judge the lifestyle that others choose. It is not possible for many couples and families to have one partner stay at home (it isn't always the woman who raises the children) but when it is possible... why not? I can't find any rational argument that a stay at home mum would do any damage to her children's career aspirations. I think that a lot of this speech is misrepresenting the feminist argument. It is not about whether career, family or having both is a better lifestyle choice. It is about being able to make that choice and choose what it is
Skeptical kinkster musing on whatever takes my fancy!
