Feminists are very strange creatures. They claim that they are all for equality and for women to be able to do what they want, but in reality as soon as a woman (or group of women) decides to do something that feminists don’t like, their claws come out and they show their true colors.
Sarrah Le Marquand appears to be one of those feminists. Marquand wrote an article for the Australian Daily Telegraph where she argued that mothers Down Under should not be allowed to be “stay-at-home moms,” and should instead be forced to work.
“Rather than wail about the supposed liberation in a woman’s right to choose to shun paid employment, we should make it a legal requirement that all parents of children of school-age or older are gainfully employed,” she wrote.
Apparently, the word “freedom” doesn’t mean anything to Marquand.
“Only when the tiresome and completely unfounded claim that ‘feminism is about choice’ is dead and buried (it’s not about choice, it’s about equality) will we consign restrictive gender stereotypes to history,” she continued.
So, feminism is about forcing people to do something they might not want to do in the name of equality? That’s not freedom, that’s borderline fascism.
Forcing women to work, especially when they don’t want to, in the name of equality is utterly moronic. Women, just like men, should have a choice about whether they want to stay home and raise their kid(s) or have a job (or possibly both).
While Marquand’s article was targeted at Australia, it’s only a matter of time before feminists in America pick up on this argument and start screaming in the streets demanding that they be forced to work.
If feminists want work requirements and want no choices in how they run their lives, maybe they should go visit North Korea or any of the Middle Eastern countries and just leave the rest of us alone.
