I'm The Girl Who'd Rather Raise A Family Than A Feminist Protest Sign

You raise your protest picket signs and I’ll raise my white picket fence.

Social Media feeds are constantly filled with quotes on women's rights, protests with mobs of women, and an array of cleverly worded picket signs.

Good for them, standing up for their beliefs and opinions. Will I be joining my tight-knit family of the same gender?

Nope, no thank you.

Don't get me wrong, I am not going to be oblivious to my history and the advancements that women have fought to achieve. I am aware that the strides made by many women before me have provided us with voting rights, a voice, equality, and equal pay in the workforce.

For that, I am deeply thankful. But at this day in age, I know more female managers in the workforce than male. I know more women in business than men. I know more female students in STEM programs than male students. So what’s with all the hype? We are girl bosses, we can run the world, we don’t need to fight the system anymore.

Please stop.

Because it is insulting to the rest of us girls who are okay with being homemakers, wives, or stay-at-home moms. It's dividing our sisterhood, and it needs to stop.

All these protests and strong statements make us feel like now we HAVE to obtain a power position in our career. It's our rightful duty to our sisters. And if we do not, we are a disappointment to the gender and it makes us look weak.

Weak to the point where I feel ashamed to say to a friend “I want to be a stay at home mom someday.” Then have them look at me like I must have been brain-washed by a man because that can be the only explanation. I'm tired of feeling belittled for being a traditionalist.

Why?

Because why should I feel bad for wanting to create a comfortable home for my future family, cooking for my husband, being a soccer mom, keeping my house tidy? Because honestly, I cannot wait.

I will have no problem taking my future husband’s last name, and following his lead.

The Bible appoints men to be the head of a family, and for wives to submit to their husbands. (This can be interpreted in so many ways, so don't get your panties in a bunch at the word “submit”). God specifically made women to be gentle and caring, and we should not be afraid to embrace that. God created men to be leaders with the strength to carry the weight of a family.

However, in no way does this mean that the roles cannot be flipped. If you want to take on the responsibility, by all means, you go girl. But for me personally? I'm sensitive, I cry during horror movies, I'm afraid of basements and dark rooms. I, in no way, am strong enough to take on the tasks that men have been appointed to. And I'm okay with that.

So please, let me look forward to baking cookies for bake sales and driving a mom car.

And I'll support you in your endeavors and climb to the top of the corporate ladder. It doesn't matter what side you are on as long as we support each other, because we all need some girl power.

Cardi B And Other Celebs Are Getting Political, But It’s Not As Bad Of An Idea As You Think

Celebrities push teens through the political door and start their interest in politics, as well as encourage voting every election season.

With the government shutdown persisting, celebs such as the one and only Cardi B have spoken out with their opinions. I watched Cardi's Instagram rant about it, and for me, it raised a larger question — should celebrities be involved in politics?

Besides the current government debate, Kim Kardashian met with the President recently to display her political views surrounding prison reform, and she received both praise and hatred for it. Was it okay for her to be making such a move?

Yes, it's totally okay — and for good reason.

First, if we allowed the silencing of celebrities' opinions, we'd be violating constitutional rights. Sure, not every celebrity is well-informed or speaks intelligently, but young or old, educated or not, poor or rich, every American has the right to speak freely and vote freely.

It's easy to say, "What does Kim know about policy? She needs to shut up," but considering the bigger implications of silencing every questionable opinion, it's dangerous.

Second, celebrities having such vocal power is no different from political figures having vocal power. Maybe younger generations will look up to Lady Gaga for worldly advice when she speaks, but older generations look at presidents and congressmen the same way.

Yes, I know you're thinking, "Yeah, that's because presidents and congressmen have actual political experience." The issue with that justification is that political experience and/or a law degree don't mean a person will have an informed opinion or make informed decisions. Law degrees are given to people who argue best, not to those who research best.

As for politics, I would strongly argue that politics are far more influenced by feelings than logical reasoning or data. And because of this, a poor uneducated illiterate person could hold the exact same political opinions as a wealthy Harvard graduate.

And third, the power of celebrities has proven to be highly beneficial in the bipartisan sense for younger generations. Celebrities push teens through the political door and start their interest in politics, as well as encourage voting every election season. After Taylor Swift encouraged her fans to vote on Instagram, approximately 170,000 people registered to vote within the same 48 hours.

If you still would rather not listen to Cardi B talking about the government shutdown, that's okay! It's your right to not listen. But that doesn't mean we should diminish her right to speak.
