I saw the quote below by HRC this morning. It struck a nerve when I first heard it, as a new mother and housewife back in 1992, and more than two decades later it still makes me irritable.
I have no problem with a woman choosing to pursue a career outside the home or choosing to juggle the responsibilities of home and professional life. What I resent is radical, liberal utlra-feminists (a.k.a the false prophets of feminism), who consider themselves superior to those of us who choose to dedicate ourselves to fulfilling the vocation of full-time mother and housewife (dirty words, I know). I resent a woman, deemed by many as worthy of running for President of the United States of America, who trivializes motherhood, reducing it to “baking cookies and having teas.” And liberals have the audacity to accuse conservatives of waging a war on women?
Hillary Rodham Clinton on marriage and motherhood:
“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.” That explains why it took her a village.
What difference does it make? It makes a difference to me. It’s obvious Hillary Rodham Clinton is an elitist and an ultra-feminist who believes women who stay at home to raise their kids and serve their husbands are wasting their lives. Remember this in 2016. I certainly will.
