The One Life Dream That Makes a Girl Blush
What have we done to young women that they are embarrassed to want what most women have always wanted and is wired within us?
“I know it’s silly,” one girl said. “I know. But…” she hesitated, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear. “I really just want to be married. To raise some kids. To take care of a home.” She’s almost embarrassed by the time she’s finished saying the sentiment. As if admitting it has made any impressive strength and wit she had faded away into a pile of proverbial laundry and dishes. As if she’s ashamed for wanting something so “trivial” and simple. “Is that silly? I mean, it’s really all I really want to do.”
We’ve gone so far down the road of feminism that we’ve forgotten how to proudly be feminine.
