I've been thinking about two recent issues from the news.
First, the mommy wars. Is it a feminist statement for American women to choose NOT to have a job?
And second, the gender ratio in India. Have millions of female fetuses been aborted during the past ten years?
How are these two issues connected, you may ask?
The mommy wars make me angry. They say it's about choice. The so-called Stay At Home Moms admit that they are lucky that they have the money to Choose to be a mommy instead of a person. Why is it a choice for mommies but doesn't appear to be debated much in the daddy community?
And when society continues to value sons more than daughters and you mix that with another type of Choice it gets pretty ugly.
Go ahead. Argue with me. Bring it on.
