Past Musings from The Lady

Erick Erickson unleashed a frenzy of hot debate with his article at Red State regarding gender and breadwinners. The primary thrust being it is advantageous for the woman to be the one at home while dad is out earning the money; she is the better nurturer. I don’t disagree with that basic premise. Loads of indoctrinated feminists just flipped out and are yelling at their screen right now, but sorry — women ARE better at nurturing.
What I do disagree with is Erickson laying the entire debate at the feet of women without a single mention of the responsibility of men – not a single mention of absentee or deadbeat dads. The closest Erickson comes to touching that is here:
Not everyone has the luxury of raising their children in a traditional manner and the rest of us have an obligation to help and support those in unfortunate situations. Likewise, there is nothing wrong with mothers having jobs. There is nothing wrong with women being breadwinners. Sometimes they have to by necessity.
“Sometimes they have to by necessity.” Gee, and why would that be? In most cases, Dad isn’t around for one reason or another and mom is on her own. Somehow, mom is the one who ends up with kids in the majority of scenarios.
I’d like to thank fellow Syracuse Alumnae and general kick ass mom for her debate with Erickson and Lou Dobbs for her comment about Erickson’s position. Dobbs had just finished saying we have “shattered marriages” in our society and Kelly fired back:
“Why are you attributing that to women in the workforce?” she interjected.
BINGO. Both Dobbs and Erickson are focused on women and ignoring the male part of the equation. Watch the clip here: Continue reading

I’ve just gotten back from Charlotte this afternoon and am collecting my various notes, cards and thoughts about BlogConCLT. What an incredible experience.
