    Not 2 months ago, here on DKOS, we had a community spotlight post from a STHM who said that feminists did not support her.

    So this cry me a river response about how hard it is to raise 5 children will find some sympathizers out there ... those mean liberal feminists just don't understand about being a real woman and staying home to raise your children (with the help of a nanny, a cook, a housekeeper, etc.).

    We have to keep fighting the same damn willful ignorance all the time.

      Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find decent help these days?  Austrian warmbloods are high maintenance, after all. You can't just turn them loose in a pasture somewhere because they will forget their dressage lessons before the sun goes down.  And don't get me started on caring for the accompanying equipment.

      Seriously, turning women against each other over this issue is a killer for Dems.

      I'd have to agree, the modern feminist movement hasn't done much for women who stay home with children for part or all of their adult lives.  Its true, but hopefully its something that can be remedied without a lot of mudslinging.

        it is a very real misunderstanding which the RW loves to exploit.

        The whole point to Rosen's remark (taken out of context) was that Ann Romney is not a good source for information on women's economic issues. But it will spread as a "feminists ve real women" thingy quicker than a grassfire during a dry August.

          THIS very real, stay-at-home FEMINIST will help them understand, quickly.
