What women have to realize is that they can't have it every way they want it. They either want to be in the workforce and not raising children or they want to raise a family. They can't do both then complain they don't have the time nor funds to do both and look for society to pick up the slack. If they can manage doing both without complaining how hard it is and looking for the government to help them afford that type of lifestyle more power to them.

Men b*tch and moan ALL the time about the lack of time and money when they work and have kids. I work with mostly guys and the complaints about lack of time for golf, watching TV sports, working on their cars, deer hunting, going out with their buds etc etc etc happen every day.

And they don’t even do a quarter of the childcare, laundry, cooking and cleaning that their working wives do. Can’t have it both ways men. You want women to financially contribute, but don’t step up to do your fair share of parenting the kids or taking care of day to day tasks.

No "scientific" evidence found at the bottom of empty beer bottles perhaps. There's plenty of anthropological evidence.

I completely agree with this. In '07 I was laid off for a year. My wife worked. I had the house clean, the laundry done, did the grocery shopping, and had dinner ready when she got home. She was bummed when I went back to work.

Women and men complain the same. The silent generation left the workforce decades ago (before I came around) and now everyone constantly complains regardless of gender.

Men always make a big deal of other men or women complaining but trust me men are just as soft and snowflakey as women. Anyone that owns a business or manages employees know that men pull the same stunts and moan just as much.

I will admit that the female student docs (doctors) are laser focused to a point that I have to remind then that there is more than hospital and sick people in life, I never have to remind the guys of that. I do wonder what is going to happen to the birth rate in the USA, the women in school now do not mention children or families outside of parents at all (all 24-32 age). My female counterparts that have children mostly have 1, that's it.

Is there a point to this thread or do we just fill in whatever we want?

I like pie.
