A post over at Thought Catalog is generating a lot of buzz, which isn’t surprising, considering the provocative title: “I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry.”

“Do people really think that a stay at home mom is really on equal footing with a woman who works and takes care of herself?” asks writer Amy Glass.

I hear women talk about how “hard” it is to raise kids and manage a household all the time. I never hear men talk about this. It’s because women secretly like to talk about how hard managing a household is so they don’t have to explain their lack of real accomplishments. Men don’t care to “manage a household.” They aren’t conditioned to think stupid things like that are “important.”

Women will be equal with men when we stop demanding that it be considered equally important to do housework and real work. They are not equal. Doing laundry will never be as important as being a doctor or an engineer or building a business.

Readers are giving the piece a thumbs down.
