I can`t believe they`d even print a line like...
`Sources tell us in what amounts to a bizarre confession that the suspect is actually accusing the four-year-old boy of seducing her. But police are not buying that explanation as they investigate several instances of rape and sexual abuse inside the day care center over a six-week period. `
If it was a male suspect would they even need to *say* `the police are not buying that explaination`
BTW, no doubt stay-at-home mothers are the perpetrators as well and I`m sure if they are its far more likely that they get away with it.
And this is for BQ.
If you need people to affirm your life choices, perhaps you should start your own bbs board devoted to that.
Galt has every right to question why women, almost exclusively, get to be homemakers and why they get such incredible amounts of social and government support in doing so. If the option was available to men at the rate that men seem to desire it (40%) then I think Galt wouldn`t have a problem with the privilage of being a homemaker.
It`s like this. A woman comes on here saying she`s X, but X is a privilage reserved almost exclusively for women. Very few men get to have that privilage, although a significant minority (40%) want it. X involves all sorts of personal pluses, extra time with your kids, extra time with your friends, a self-directed work enviroment, no work politics or deadline preassures, plus extra time a day to pursue hobbies and interests. Then the woman not only wants to have her privilaged position, but have people see it as being as hard and demanding as the position her husband is in, providing the money to support her. Despite the fact that, statistically, her husband works longer hours, has to deal with work politics, deadlines and being directed by someone else who could fire him if he steps out of line, *and* he has to deal with the preasure of being the only bread winner.
Now, if the woman was simply privilaged and knew it, and it was a mutual decision between her and her husband, I`m sure Galt would respect that, while still pointing out that very, very few men get the same choice. And that she would likely be working if she were a man, thus her lifestyle is entirely a result of her female privilage.
But if also she wants to be seen as sacrificing equally with her husband(having her cake and eating it too)... well, I think that`s where Galt draws the line.
Correct me if I`m wrong, Galt.
