I was very happy at home with the way mom and dad kept things going they always
knew what and when to do it we were a traditional family mom worked outside of
the home when she wanted to and dad was fine with that no arguing thatIi can
remember they made choices that were fine to each other combined
Hrm...Compare last years study showing that men whose wives earn
more then them are happier.So I think this is another case of idiot
kids not knowing what they're talking about.That said? My
grandmother asked me and my boyfriend "so, which of you is the
woman?"My nephews and nieces? Have never asked that question or
anything comparable.So regardless of what they think is
"ideal", I think the kids are going to be all-right.
Having flexibility in gender roles is good for everybody. Every couple should
just work out what works for them - in some cases it's completely
traditional and the man works/wife at home and sometimes the complete opposite.
The beauty of it is - the people involved get to decide! I call that progress.
Everyone is different.@SimplicityYour argument ends with "As
countries become more liberal/feminist/progressive the family unit crumbles.
Traditions, religion and culture deteriorates as communism and fascism ensues.
Good bye freedom and happiness." As a woman I am so grateful
that I live in a time where I can vote and inherit and get a job without
discrimination, where I can choose the number and timing of my children and have
freedom to live a life with choices. Your argument is vague and makes no sense.
It incorrectly assumes that all feminists are the stereotype of man-hating
liberals. I dont think you appreciate that "progressive" thinking has
made life better for many groups that were previously left out of a great deal
of what society has to offer.
Generally speaking, men and women are different. Men are wired as hunters and
gatherers. Women are wired as caretakers and homemakers. This is not opinion,
it is truth. Regardless of the liberal view of media and feminist/progressive
movements this truth will prevail. As countries become more
liberal/feminist/progressive the family unit crumbles. Traditions, religion and
culture deteriorates as communism and fascism ensues. Good bye freedom and
Sorry folks, but a dentist should make more money then a burger flipper.The demand for particular skills is what determines the pay.
Work is work whether it is in the workplace or home. It is about fair division
of labor that is important not gender roles & stereotypes. We need to quit
locking people into roles and help people be fair, compassionate, equally
responsible for success in both environments.
As Jeff Foxworthy notes, women do about 99.9% of the cooking and cleaning jobs
at home, but men will take more recognition for their .1%.
You don't whine, and beg for equality.You take the bull by the
horns, and make your own success.
@Frozen FractalsMillennials are those that graduated high school
around 2000. Most are in their 30s now. This group is very liberal. It's
Gen Z, most of these are in k-12 or will graduating soon that are rejecting
@DBreit1Good point, I'll just say I suspect there's not a very
large difference between the voting patterns of high school seniors (the subject
of this survey) and that of 18-24 year olds.

Conservative generation since the WW2 generation. ""Then why
do they overwhelmingly vote Democratic?"Gen Z are too young to
vote - they are still in High School, Jr High, etc.... It's the Millennials
(Gen Y) that are voting/acting overwhelmingly Democratic/Progressive/Marxist
(though a portion have strong libertarian leanings instead)...

It seems to me equality in the home comes down to people being happy with the
roles they have assumed, working as a partnership. This comes down to personal
likes and dislikes, talents, physical strength, patience etc. Being equal
doesn't necessarily mean that I expect my wife to do half the vehicle
repairs, or carry something heavy half way to the house from the back of the
truck. The way I view responsibilities around the home is that we each focus on
what we are the most capable of doing so we get the job done well and quickly so
we can spend time doing something more fun and relaxing. Really it's all
common sense, but it does rely on people being reasonable and open minded to
ensure no one feels put on. The researchers seem to be working from the idea
that men and women are the same, interchangeable, when I think as individuals we
know we are not the same. The young people surveyed know this too and can
recognize that some of what may be seen as stereotypes are actually common sense
when it comes to deciding who does what. Then of course the one thing that
can't be changed is that women are the ones who give birth to our children
so a father can never be exactly a mother.
Generation Z, as they're calling it, is the most Conservative generation
since the WW2 generation. This has the fake mainstream news media freaking out.
Their viewers are literally dying off.This new generation is
getting their news off of YouTube and alternative media which is dominated by
Conservative and honest journalism. That's why you see an all out attack
on their advertisers (YouTube) and speech censorship on social media like
Twitter and Facebook.Generation Z is killing liberal journalism off
slowly but surely. They're also pushing the Democrat party into
balkanization, prominent only in small and irrelevent regional locations. We
all need to be very careful. A cornered animal is at its most violent.
It seems the researchers wanted the research to come out differently. They said
that the results are hard to explain, puzzling, and cognitively dissonant. Researchers tend to be looking forward to their next project and the
grant money they need to get. While the survey results are mixed, it is clear
that the approval the majority of high school seniors have for more defined
traditional male-female roles in the home is not going to sit well with most
funding organizations that have been trending liberal for the past 30 to 40
years.It is refreshing that the researchers had the integrity to
honestly produce their results in spite of the fact in may cost them future
Check a thousand people going to a grocery store, or buffet.No two
grocery carts, or dinner plates will be exactly the same.Equality
will never exist, because people are all different! That's the way it is!
I think listening to the younger generation can defenitely shed some light on
the best way to raise children and manage a family.Sometimes it
takes alot for society to accept changes and allow freedoms and opportunities
for both genders. I think women and men should have equal oportunities, for
business women that seek a career they should have that oportunity, but if they
choose to stay home to raise children that should be acceptable also.Children raised by their own parents are better off then children who are not.
Daycare is a great service for those who need it, but I think children being
raised by their own mother and father at home is the best way to raise kids.
Coming from a single parent home myself growing up and raising my children with
my wife being home I see the difference and the benefits having one of the
parents at home to support and rear the children, my kids are emotionally more
stable than I was and are better students. Things I struggled with as I grew up
with.Studies show children raised in a traditional family with a
mother and a father at home have a 85% better chance of becoming productive
adults than other demographics.
