Why, oh, why...


NY carries this article on working moms. The poor things are converting business trips into time to relax and recuperate. I personally know a lot of working moms who have had to compromise on career to have motherhood.

Read an article that said Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disease solely brought about by stress and that women are more susceptible to it. Breast cancer. Periods. Hormonal changes. Pregnancy and associated physical discomforts. Compromises, compromises, compromises.Too many emotions. Too much thinking. Sigh.

Wonder why men have it all easy and why anyone would want to be born a woman again....sigh.

We think way too much, want to do way too much and end up overloading our plates where ever we go...sigh.

which is what makes you women, as special as you are!! Not to mention much stronger...

Hmmm...praises are like excuses by men so that they don't feel guilty about overloading women with work. A man goes to work and comes home to relax, most situations. A woman goes to work and comes home for more work, in most situations.

not to blame the women, but most ppl choose marriage for convenience ... which invariably equates to women having to do it all :( ... @ some point in time ... yet thats what most ppl opt for

what u'v said is a generalization tho I agree that its prevalent ... I'v known situations where the woman leaves early for work n the guy makes sure the kids up n goin b4 heading for work ... women taking care of the kids later in the day ... even men taking complete care while the women is still on with her studies :)

so its given to the choice u make & how lucky u r in getting an understanding partner ... thats all :) ... its not such a bad world

first of all why do woman work when nature is against it itself is puzzling to me. Scales against which we measure success to satisfy our ego is wrong and women are paying for it. :). who said working woman is superior to housewife? jollya veetla iruka vendiyathu thaane?

Men have to work! Men sitting at home, even if he takes care of the kid well, is not accepted in the society. "udhyogam purusha latchanam" hmm.

BTW, IBS is caused more by diary products and milk related indigestion.

RS, yeah!
Venky,
Well, all these confusions are supposed to make us special? :)

Anon, I don't blame men altogether..

Samy, Actually, these days men are pretty considerate to their women. But still, certain things like pregnancy or thinking too much etc...cannot really be transferred from the female sex..:)) Koodave pirandhadhu..
