    Where would we be without caring, responsible, educated, hard-working mothers? It isn't just the minority who should give voice to their opinions. Everyone should participate in the marketplace of ideas, in a civil and thoughtful manner, for best results. True, that is frequently not what happens, but why should anyone be self-satisfied they have found Nirvana and refuse to share how they got there? Moms or not moms - it's important to participate.

    I wonder how Amy's mother felt after reading this article. Probably not great. I am eternally grateful that my mother made the choice to quit teaching and raise me and my siblings at home, and even more grateful for the amazing example she gave us when she went back to school to get a Master's in Education and then went back to work after we were all old enough to fend for ourselves. I will never take for granted the time she spent at home with us, and I'll cherish the moments we spent studying together, editing each others papers, and rejoicing together when we both got good grades! Mothers are incredible, and Amy doesn't deserve any of the attention being sent her way.

    I appreciate this article, because I'm a young, virile man, and almost every day I meet and deal with people who are given entirely to what is wrong-not well meaning people with incorrect beliefs, but the fanatically twisted-against-all-that-is-true Sauls, sodomites, ghomorrans, and antediluvians outside Noah's family.

    So my initial reaction in cases like this is to uplift and supplement the voice and beliefs of good people in ways that indicates my ability and willingness to stand firm. Really, really firm. But I slowed down and read through the article first, and it indicated once again how essential not only mothers are, but women to the all-important bond of man and woman, one being incomplete without the other, and one of the reasons that motherhood-especially deliberate, exclusive motherhood-is so important and irreplaceable.

    It's ironic how vehemently feminists tend to attack and belittle the most powerful, ennobling, and well-fit task a woman can be blessed with.

    If she feels that way fine. If you are a stay at home mom and are happy with your situation does this really concern you?

    I guess someone died and left her in charge. So sad someone can find comfort in mocking the very thing that someone did for her and gave her the life she has. I'm sure her mother sacrificed and gave up a lot of her dreams and desires to raise such a thoughtless person. I feel bad for her mother.
