As Aesop said, “misery loves company”.
My story is a tale of two daughters, 19 months apart in age. The oldest is an academic all-star, just completing her second year of a 4-year Pharm-D graduate program.
The youngest daughter paused her undergraduate degree to get married to an active-duty NCO and just recently had a baby. She expects to finish her degree in a year and start teaching Special Ed.
The oldest daughter will most likely enjoy more money and creature comforts, but the youngest will be well on her way building and raising her family.
I’ll be interested to see who seems to be happiest with their life choices.
Now, they're aging, fat, and alone. Nobody wants them. Sound harsh? Good. It should. It's the truth.
They're bitter and pissed off, and they seem to collect either cats or small dogs to make up for unrealized motherhood.
I don't feel sorry for these losers AT ALL.
150 years of social engineering idealism will not trump 40,000 years of reality. Thank goodness
Ill be interested to see who seems to be happiest with their life choices.”
Hopefully you will be surprised to find out that each is happy with their choice.
The way I see it many of these women bought this feminist crap hook, line, and sinker. Many of them were married and got divorced to live the feminist “freedom” dream. Many never married so they could live the feminist dream of being the career “power woman”.
Most of the women are now middle-aged, fat-bottomed, and bitter. Unfortunately, for the rest of us, it is these women who consistently vote for Democrats who have pledged to be their “husband” and take care of them.
Feminism was always nothing more than the beautiful apple in the garden of Eden, bright and shiny and delicious in the mouth, but sickeningly bitter in the stomach.
Thank you for posting the recipe for a happy life.
He was great in Black Books!
I know several of these and most of them are in good paying government do nothing jobs that no male has any business applying for or will ever get.
“but today they often feel alone more than successful and stand at a biological crossroads shattering their sense of self.” Still can only think of “self”. And most likely can’t believe their choices brought them to where they are today.
Ping for future comments
the “have it all” feminazis are now middle-aged,fat,and bitter,many are drunks.
Karma, for the misery they caused the shmucks who wasted time on em
———elitist to archaic.-——
Also rational and correct
Highly educated spinsters are actually societal offal
On the other side of the coin, it’s sad that we have lost the tradition of the Celibate Laywoman. There is no respect anymore for the woman who decides against having a family because it is assumed she’s doing it for the prestige or the money or the sexual freedom. We need to teach our daughters that, if they truly do not wish to marry, they it does not inevitably require wallowing in the excesses of this world.
One thing I have learned from the single middle-aged women I know is that all the good men really are taken. By good ones, I mean men willing to get married. There are way too many bums and too many men who think being single is better.
I'm glad you said that, because I've been reading this thread and thinking that nothing here resonates with me. I never wanted children, so I didn't have them and am single. Yes, with cats! I've loved cats since I was a small child, down in Grandpa's barn cuddling with them. My mom gave me a doll and it creeped me out. I knew very young that family just wasn't for me. I'm kind to others in a distant sort of way, but that's all.
But that doesn't mean I'm either a sexual adventuress or a money-hungry career woman. I'm just sort of a natural Spinster Libriarian type. I live in spartan simplicity with books, cats, and a rose garden. Kind of a Miss Marple, but not so inclined to become enveloped in a murder mystery.
I guess this conversation ultimately doesn't have anything to do with me, as it's about "having it all" when I didn't want any of it.
To add to this: Feminism whispered into the ears of these women and said..."you can be like God"...and have fame, fortune, happiness, utopia, but you must sacrifice any future children to the god of feminism.
