I often wonder if the people who push tradwife shit both on the left and right do any of the housework in their homes and if so, how many people besides them do they have to look after.

"Women have been failed by liberal feminism and believe that they should go work careers instead of staying in the home." Okay yes, I agree, but... you can see why someone might NOT want to devote their lives to doing exhausting and undervalued physical labor.

@cambrian_era How can people on the left push for that?!

“Instead of doing work paid and with a contract, you should work unpaid and without a contract.”

@Sylvhem lol because they're a combination of wealthy tradcaths, nazbols, and contrarian podcast grifters. Do _I_ think that isn't very 'leftist'? Yes. But... they're still there.

@cambrian_era It’s not “liberal feminism” to say it’s usually better for women to do capitalist work rather than domestic work. Granted, it still sucks, but thanks to collective bargaining over the years, it often sucks a little less.
The main problem is that women usually end up doing capitalist work *and* domestic work. But the solution to that would be ending up both capitalism and patriarchy, not pushing for the idea that domestic work is actually fine.

@Sylvhem Right. They're not wrong that empowerment rhetoric and girlboss shit isn't actually good! But their solutions are terrible.
