further deliberation on lady business.



Me: It’s (this article) a great example of women not being seen as full, complicated people-even by other women. We just want to have babies and raise babies and that’s all we need, not other jobs or other fulfillment, and if that’s not true of us…then what?

Fat and the Ivy:  It’s so hard to explain to people that not allowing woman to opt out of motherhood is dehumanizing.  But that’s exactly what it is.  The ideal woman is a child– docile, sweet, small, subservient, unable to make her own decisions.  Until she becomes a womb– where she is still subservient to this “life” growing within her.  And then she is subservient to her children.  Until she dies.
