A bombshell for feminists just dropped. Researchers have found housewives are far happier than Strong, Independent Women™ with educations and careers that have turned them into debt slaves, corporate cogs and taxpaying serfs. Rather than stay at home as women have through the ages, “empowered” women now routinely pay nannies to raise their own children, if they have them at all. As today’s women fume and fuss, now suffering through a nearly 50 hour average work week just like men, women who work at home are smiling ear to ear as they help create optimally adjusted young men and women. Housewives, it seems, are more than happy to provide their families with nutritious meals and perform other light housework on their own time rather than jumping through hoops on the demanding schedule of a soulless bean counter.
Rather than Western society trying to reinvent the wheel with everything it touches, this British study is a great piece of evidence showing the truth of the maxim if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It turns out women didn’t need “fixing” by feminism so they could become more like men. And, as discussed in a previous TNMM report, the Have It All™ career girl is only proving Freud’s penis envy theory correct.
The fact women who stay at home are happier than any other profession flies in the face of 50 years of feminist propaganda that tells women the Have It All™ lifestyle is the one they should be chasing. Of course, feminists love pushing men out of careers in air-conditioned offices while cleverly avoiding backbreaking work in the almost totally male timber, mining, and garbage collection industries. Equality doesn’t apply if there is manual labor involved. Notice the hypocrisy?
The feminist idea is that being a housewife is not a job, or is somehow oppressive is actually discriminatory to women who see traditional gender roles as holding precedence over competing with and displacing men from the workplace. Laura Perrins, who runs the Conservative Woman web site points out the biases of feminists and the politicians who do the bidding of their lobbyists.
That this survey confirms is how satisfying the vocation of raising children at home, and all the work that it entails, is. Mothers who do this know what a responsible job raising children is. It is a shame our government does not share this view.
So, why are Western governments trying to eliminate sex differences by pushing women out of the home and into the workforce when a full 6 out of 7 women report being fulfilled as housewives? The Liverpool Victoria survey, conducted in the heart of the Anglosphere, England, found a level of unhappiness among housewives that is half that of civil servants, saleswomen, or PR flacks. Here is how the top five happiest careers break down. Importantly, the happiest professions are the ones historically filled by female employees:
- Housewives – 87.2% happy
- Hospitality and events management – 86.3% happy
- Creative arts and design – 84.4% happy
- Charity work – 83.9% happy
- Leisure, sport and tourism – 83.7% happy
The Daily Mail (UK) also dropped another bombshell as it reported career girls are usually much less happy than women in traditionally female fields, and a large number of career girls would like to give up life on the corporate plantation to go back to being stay at home wives and moms. These findings go against 50 years of feminist propaganda:
The least satisfied were working in marketing, advertising and public relations, with a happiness rating of 53.8%. Government surveys have also shown that more than a third of mothers who go out to work would like to give up their jobs and stay at home with their children. But women who stay at home to bring up families are under heavy pressure from the Government to find jobs and send their children into childcare.
As women made the transition out of the home and into the workforce, it created twice the number of taxpayers adding to bureaucratic largesse, and cut labor costs in half as men were displaced from their traditional roles, which could explain why the corporate-government complex pressures women to find Joe jobs rather than doing work that makes them happy. Corporations and the government have vested interests in seeing women do mundane work rather than working towards maintaining an intact family and being a loving, and loved mother.
The survey details the importance and quantity of work performed by women who choose to be homemakers. Here’s how the average day for the housewife breaks down, showing the job is far from easy:
- Childcare: 2 hours, 7 minutes
- Cleaning: 1 hour, 47 minutes
- Shopping: 1 hour, 20 minutes
- Gardening: 1 hour, 2 minutes
- Cooking: 1 hour, 44 minutes
- Laundry: 1 hour, 28 minutes
- Teaching children: 1 hour, 1 minute
- Driving: 56 minutes
- Other: 1 hour, 46 minutes
Highlighting the type of work housewives do underscores the value and the importance of the traditional woman in helping hold the family together. She is irreplaceable. While misandrist feminists scoff at this ideal, for many women they feel it is the highest calling career wise. Personally, as a man there’s nothing sexier than a housewife who loves her husband and family. This is the kind of women I would do anything for, not the hateful, man-hating, demanding feminists of today. And, ironically feminism actually weakened women, contrary to its stated purpose. This aspect of feminism is discussed in a previous TNMM article:
In short, feminism is a Trojan Horse for the real goal of Cultural Marxism. It operates under the rules of Machiavellian politics, which use duplicity and cunning to hide the true objectives those in power. Women thought they were “progressing” but in reality they were regressing. They now dedicate their lives to an unloving career and employer rather than a loving husband and children.
As traditionalism is becoming the new counterculture in the early 21st century, a blog called The Glamorous Housewife has sprung up and details the story of one woman who writes articles like Why I Love Being a Homemaker. Feminists would have a myocardial infarction if they stumbled onto that site, especially since it is written by and for women. Some of the top reasons women who contribute to The Glamorous Housewife have decided that being a homemaker is an important role in society include, in their own words:
- I set my own schedule and work for the people I love most in the world.
- I get to sleep with the boss.
- Being able to take care of my husband in an ideal fashion, dinner when he walks in the door, etc. Ensuring my daughter is okay as she transitions from teenager to adult. Being there whenever they need me always. Being blessed to be with or be concentrating on family. Everything about being a modern homemaker is amazing, been my dream since I was little and it finally came true.
- I like the flexibility and the lack of stress, too. Not that things aren’t stressful with little kids, but it’s not the kind of stress I experienced when I worked outside my home.
Importantly, children from traditional nuclear families in which the mother takes care of the kids and men bring home the bacon also fare better statistically than any other type of familial arrangement. The documentary Demographic Winter demonstrates how pulling women out of the home and putting them into the workforce has not only made them less happy, but it has created a dying population in America along with a rising rate of child delinquency. Beyond the better citizens and contributors to society that housewives groom and the happier lives they enjoy, marrying a career woman is fraught with difficulties. Even Penelope Trunk, who helps women manage their careers admits:
The conclusion, that marriages and families work better with a full-time housewife, is hard to swallow but hard to deny.
Not only does marriage and family work better when wives and mothers stay at home than when women marry a corporation, all parties involved are happier. If it was such terrible oppression as feminists claim, why would women love the work so much?
