I got married last August, we decided (I've been thinking about it for a long time) that I would stay at home with the kids. I've gotten some strange feminist-ish push back. I thought they were all about "choice", but when I mentioned that it was my job to do the laundry and take care if the house, etc. to his sister he became the bad guy, within a conversation where I and her husband were siding together over things we have in common vs. our spouses (a brother and sister who have a lot in common, including their choice in their mates personalities). I don't mean that to sound adversarial, it was an overall pleasant conversation up until the moment that she completely switched sides. I am in full on housewife mode now and I feel some look down on that choice, I don't understand and feel like it is so much better than working $10/hr. restaurant jobs for the rest of my life. This is my job now and I wish people would lay off about it, and automatically assume he pushed me into doing everything at home while he gets to go off and work. Saying "gets to" like there's some sort of fun involved, is an awfully strange way of pointing out that he works hard at a back breaking job to provide support for our family. Yes, I work hard at home too, but he deserves to be doted on for his contribution, and I'm happy to do it.
Sorry for the rant, just found this sub and glad there's more people like me to have these sorts of (hopefully) rational conversations about this type of stuff.
TL;DR: What's up with people hatin' on housewives?
