    There are good things in there applying to everyone.

    I think the context of this is women (Rosie the Riveter) entering factory jobs. It looks like a genuine attempt to protect the "fairer sex". Different times, maybe appears insulting by today's norms.

    In some ways, women's rights are better. But in many ways, not at all. Women still lag behind men in wages, even when performing the same job. At the risk of opening a huge Pandora's box, I will state that IMO, family status, especially when it comes to child welfare is suffering when compared to previous generations. Babies are parked in day care while both parents work long hours to achieve "the status quo". Many women feel that they are not validated if they don't: hold a well paying job which includes long work hours and extra emotional overhead... While, at the same time: they are expected to keep the home, raise the children, provide nourishing meals, spend hours shuffling kids to and from their many social and enrichment activities... all in the name of "equal rights". I would gladly turn the clock back to a time when the tax burden and pursuit of "things" did not force women into the work force. Children benefit greatly from being able to be raised by their parents, and have their mothers present in their lives.

    I strongly disagree with your statement of a wage gap. It is illegal to pay different rates on gender. The gap statistics are generated by combining the totals for ALL jobs. Historically women have dominated lower paying careers. I have worked for a variety of companies that explicitly prohibited what you claim is a fact.

    Because of career and positions, I make over twice what my wife makes. That, under, the dubious wage gap statistics, would claim she is under paid.

    I agree not having a parent at home is detrimental. With my first wife and child, I did the math. With her working, her net take home pay was 25 cents per hour. So we had her quit.

    A real disparity in is family court. Fathers are treated as second class citizens and merely a check. I had no say in how my support money was used. I have fought a running battle for 6 years.

    We disagree on the wage gap. I simply just don't agree, based on my experiences. Let's leave it there. I don't want to get into a reference link posting thread battle.

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics- mark twain

    I agree...things have changed. Some good, some not.

    The family "unit" has long been dismantled, IMO. Also, IMO, that is not a good thing!! The "who's my daddy" option is way, way out of control. And family mealtimes had/have more purpose than just eating. McD is not my idea of a good family mealtime, on a daily basis.

    Our general economy has changed. Peoples perception of what should & should not happen has changed. The description of home has changed. We have good and bad with all of it.
