One of the more ludicrous claims of feminist-minded women is that they “want to have it all”, by which they mean they would like to have both a career and a family. Of course, the issue is that this is only possible in a very limited interpretation of “career” and “family”, namely, it only works when looking at surface appearances. I have certainly noticed that women are much more concerned with appearances than substance. Now I could point out how they like glittery clothes, even if they are of poor quality, or how they all want to have “a degree”, just because they assume academic degrees to have value by itself, regardless of the subject they are in.
Women who aim for a degree sometimes seem to lack an understanding that putting a BA, MA, or PhD behind one’s name isn’t all that important. After all, if there is any value to be conveyed by those titles, it is largely due to the knowledge holders of said degrees are equipped with. This fact is normally not acknowledged by feminists who push for more womyn in tech. Your skills are important, not so much your actual degree. Of course, there are some caveats, but let’s just throw this out there: a STEM degree from a middling institution will likely open a lot more doors than a degree in b.s. from the same place. Thus, I find the attitude so common in the US that any degree is a good degree, or libshits claiming that they went to “collage” means they should automatically get a good job so grating.
But what has all of this to do with womyn who want to have it all? Well, similarly they only care about the check box to tick. Oh, they have one kid, so technically they have a family. Then, they have work, even if it’s not full-time, so it’s a “career”. However, doing a piss-poor job on both fronts does not mean that you have it all. Raising kids, when done properly, is, by and large, a full-time job. Of course, this implies that the woman keeps the house in order, prepares elaborate nutritious means instead of microwaved crap, and checks up on the kids’ homework.
Likewise, having a “career” normally entails significant sacrifices. In fact, it’s a bit of a gamble because the deal is normally that you work really hard for many years, and if things work out, you may end up working even harder. What also might happen is that things change. Sometimes, entire industries collapse, for instance, which tanks career prospects in a, well, rather democratic manner. Oh, and even if you don’t need to put in more hours at work, it is likely that you’ll have to make other sacrifices, like traveling for work assignments, or commuting to less desirable locations. If you really want to pursue a career, then chances are that you won’t be able to be very involved with your family, which is indeed what many career-minded men regret, namely that they barely see their kids.
Yet, there is an easy solution which makes it possible that womyn can have it all:
1) Call anything a family that involves kids, even if they are from different fathers.
2) Claim that it’s still a family even if dad got dragged out of the house on false accusations of domestic violence.
3) Use “career” as a synonym for “job”, and claim that every job is a career. If push comes to shove, welfare payments are a valid substitute for a job and, consequently, a career.
In the end, you will have a lot of women who “have it all”, even though they have gotten a really shitty deal as opposed to women who stayed at home, properly raised their kids, and made their husband happy.
