Two things: @22 OH MY GOD YES. Is this normal in Utah? A mom straddling her teenage son and giving him a back massage? Normal enough that it's filmed for an unrelated project? Ew!

And I was doing ok reading his website until I came across the phrase "seized to exist." As in, "as soon as classes let out, my social life seized to exist." Buh bye.

By living my life, I'm perpetuating sexism? What if I was a nurse or teacher or another traditionally-female profession? Exactly how radical must my choices be in order to fit with your standards?

Your argument is bogus, but even if it weren't, this isn't the place for it! Republicans said Obama voters were lazy and sleep until noon. The Stranger asked for photos of Obama voters not sleeping until noon. I'm one of them and a full-time parent. LEAVE IT ALONE.

As for the argument, how is being a SAHM doing men's family work for free? My husband's salary is OUR MONEY. He "pays" me for the childrearing, cooking, cleaning, and other family work that I do by providing for my needs and contributing to my Roth IRA every month.

I don't care if my life is problematic to you. It allows me to raise my kid, to have a great family life, and to spend some of my time fighting so that other families will have more and better opportunities. If we had single-payer healthcare and a government-subsidized creche daycare on every corner, I would've gone back to work sooner and stopped providing my husband with the "unfair advantage" having a wife at home provides. But we don't, and it is bullshit to blame full-time parents for doing the calculus that says it's better for everyone, me included, for me to stay home while the kid(s) is in diapers.

Bottom line though: this is not the place to have that argument! Lay off and take your agenda elsewhere. I've got work to do.

You've never heard of a stay at home dad?

@22, that article and that position has nothing to do with this post. I never said that raising my son was the most important thing in my life (although incidentally, fuck you, it is), but it's what I do with my days NOW, and it's work. Fishing and landscaping and acting and the other jobs of people in this post aren't the only things that matter either, but they're work and they're important. Go sit on a tack.

@16 - whatever, dude. I'm that SAHM in the picture and Cal Thomas was insulting me along with every other Obama supporter out there. I don't think my work is any less valuable because it doesn't come with a paycheck, one I'd have to sign over to a daycare or nanny if I WAS working outside the home. And one thing's for damn sure: I never, ever sleep in.

I love how they didn't even try to disguise the fact that the cup is empty in the last half. She's winging it around like it's, well, an empty cup. Wonder how many ruined outfits it took to end up there.

Keh-kold. As in, "eh, whatever."

This shit should be off-limits.
