Blogger Shames Working Mothers in Viral Facebook Post, Sparks Outrage
The Transformed Wife has gone viral for all the wrong reasons.
In 2018 every household is different. Some have stay-at-home moms. Some have stay-at-home dads. Some have two working parents who can afford to hire outside help to watch over their children. Whatever the case, many Americans today are in agreement that that there are many different childcare arrangements that can work.
Well, one conservative Christian blogger with the moniker "The Transformed Wife" let it be known that she vehemently disagrees. Earlier this month, she published a flowchart on Facebook titled, "Should Women Have Careers?" The chart cast career moms in a grim light, making them seem like chronically exhausted workaholics who neglect their children, feed their families junk, and don't even have time to be intimate with their husbands.
Her conclusion is that the life of the stay-at-home mom is "fulfilling" and "her husband and children rise up and call her blessed." The working mother? Her life is "falling apart" and "she doesn't feel like she's a good wife or mother."
Here, have a look:
Suffice it to say, the post is going viral for all of the wrong reasons. Many women, including those who are stay-at-home mothers, are chiming in to say that the chart offers a wildly inaccurate portrayal of what their lives are actually like.
Many argued that her blissful description of stay-at-home moms was downright delusional.
And even women who are religious clapped back to say that this post was not in keeping with their faith.
Plenty of men joined the thread to remind The Transformed Wife that men are, in fact, perfectly capable of completing basic household chores while their wives are at work.
And some people commented to say that while they'd love to stay at home with their kids all day. that's not a financially viable option for everyone.
Basically, if you're a stay at home mom, that's great! And if you're not, that's great too! We're all just doing our best here.
