Unfair Choices: Why Women Can't Have Both a Family and a Career

What would modern American culture be without vociferous feminists crying for equality with men

It would be peaceful, that's what.

Recently, I saw a photo on Twitter of a girl holding a sign that read: Why should I have to choose between a career and a family?


Unsurprisingly similar to other feminist slogans that make the rounds to promote the myth that only females are forced to make tough or unfair choices in life, which, apparently, should not have to happen because it is not equal with males.



Are these chicks for real?

That's right. Because males don't have tough or unfair choices, such as choosing (if it's not automatically done for them) between registering with the Selective Service System and possibly getting arrested, or imprisoned, or fined, or shamed as being a bad person for not doing what is believed by many to be a patriotic duty as an American male.



That's right. Only women are faced with unfair choices, like the example of having to choose between a career or a family; because a career and a family must happen simultaneously.

And because a female belongs to either her work or her family; never herself. 


Did You Know?
It is impossible to have a career and dedicate one's waking moments to the corporate-ladder lifestyle, including a life filled with inept micromanaging bosses, rude clients, unending paperwork, and the almighty self-validating paycheck, before settling down to have a family.


Impossible, indeed!

Likewise, it is impossible to first have a family and later have a career when kids are older; because, by that time, there will be no work for anyone to do and everyone will be out of a job. There will be no new fields, no new careers, nothing to pursue, and females will have lost out all because they went and had a family first.


Oh, the horrors!  

Plus, a female can never make a family into a career by applying the knowledge gained as a mother and writing books, creating new products, or offering helpful services to parents. Creating a company and a self-styled career based on what a female learns from being a mother cannot be done, period. 


Who would dare to consider such ridiculousness? As if!


In Conclusion:
If a person holds themselves out as a feminist and is not in favor of females being forced to register with the Selective Service System equally as males must do, is that person still a feminist?

Fahrenheit 451: When Science Fiction Comes to Life

Ray Bradbury's classic science-fiction novel, Fahrenheit 451was published in 1953, over 60 years ago.

Since I am living in the future to Ray Bradbury's 1953, I find it fascinating to compare his insightful imaginings with modern-day American realities, to wit: 

"That's why we've lowered the Kindergarten age year after year until now we're almost snatching them from the cradle."
Chief Beatty

"The Office of Early Learning (OEL) is the principal office charged with supporting the Department's Early Learning Initiative with the goal of improving the health, social-emotional, and cognitive outcomes for children from birth through third grade, so that all children, particularly those with high needs, are on track for graduating from high school college- and career-ready."


"Growing the Supply of Effective Early Learning Opportunities for Young Children: To expand high-quality learning opportunities in the years before preschool, the President will call for a significant investment in a new Early Head Start-Child Care partnership. Competitive grants will support communities that expand the availability of Head Start and child care providers that can meet the highest standards of quality for infants and toddlers, serving children from birth through age 3."


"In his [2013] State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to expand access to high-quality preschool to every child in America. As part of the effort, the President will propose a series of new investments that will establish a continuum of high-quality early learning for a child -- beginning at birth and continuing to age 5. By doing so, the President would invest critical resources where we know the return on our dollar is the highest: in our youngest children."
