On being Mama

I love this piece.

Miss Amy, I could just kiss you, because...yes, yes, yes.

She talks about how those who didn't feel the call of domesticity felt vindicated during these upswell of the feminist movement.

And I feel the brunt of that so often.
I feel the judgement of those who can't understand how I would give up academia for this.
Give up the opportunity to earn my own living- out earn my own husband, for this.

They may not understand what it feels like, to have grown up being taught to crave their version, but in that....only missing this version.
