    I am big on the push we should have trad husbands, IE the man stays in the house raises the children and all that stuff while the mum works

    Breast pumps are a thing, and children don't breastfeed for the majority of their childhood. Use your imagination a bit.

    You can milk anything with nipples. So, shouldn't be a problem. Formula exists, too, on top of the previously mentioned methods.

    That's not how education works, you have that backwards.

    Minnesota isn't misspelled; they just get a collective Jamaican fetish during the frozen tundra months.

    Also how the hell do so many people not know how to spell "porn?"

    A thing that is quite annoying and inconvenient, according to my wife. I was doing the house spouse thing on weekdays and working on weekends, so she did the pumping at work. And we switched to formula within a few months. It doesn't help that a lot of workplaces are simple not conducive to allowing mothers to mother, because capitalism.

    Except, they don't.

    True feminists, real feminism, is about equality and choice. If a woman wants to stay at home, more power to her. If she wants to be a "traditional wife", that's her choice. If she wants kids or doesn't, if she wants a career or doesn't, whatever that choice is, all that matters is that she is making that choice, and no one is making it for her, and she is supported in that choice.

    I would presume it's more a matter of typos than a lack of spelling ability.

    I would presume so too, but I also have to ask the question "why are they trying to search for 'porn' when they are already on PornHub?"

    Maybe we could finally get over the dumb cultural notion that when a man stays home with the kids, it's "parenting" and not "babysitting"

    I want to say something against that...but conservatives lately.....
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    Exactly yeah. Also a stay at home parent can still increase their education and marketable skills in their free time so I don't buy the whole idea that the child rearer is giving up their ability to have a reasonably good career in the future(if it becomes wanted or necessary). Some people always say "there's not enough time in the day" to work on multiple things like that, but I say they're wrong, there is enough time in the day.

    Another way to address the world's underpopulation problem is to give tax breaks to gay couples. Like maybe if the current surrogate cost is $30k then gay couples can write-off that much in taxes, or something like that.

    Or they could, you know, focus on being a parent.

    Life does not revolve around work.
    Every heartwarming human interest story in America is like "he raised $20,000 to keep 200 orphans from being crushed in the orphan-crushing machine" and then never asks why an orphan-crushing machine exists or why you'd need to pay to prevent it from being used.

    I don't think anyone can answer this except parents themselves so I am not going to give my opinion on this

    I dunno I'm slightly creeped out by Montana and Maine. Compilation? What is with these people? Also who just goes to pornhub and searches "porn"? My fellow californians are pretty disappointing.

    Try being a house hubby. Sweep, vacuum, dust and generally clean the house. Scrub the bathroom. Do the dishes. Do the laundry. Change the linens. Take care of the kids. Cook meals. If you have more than 20 minutes to yourself to be bolstering your own skills it's practically a miracle. But that's why many people put their kids in school care programs and let some house keeping go by the wayside to go to college online. There's no way to be a full time house keeper and work on professional skill sets. One has to sacrifice some work to study.

    Besides it's hard to pin this down in a definition anyhow. Or a lot of wrong stereotypes that people have in their minds.

    I've known extreme "tradwifes" that were some of the most extrovert, comedical, playful, adventurous, outgoing and even career-ambitious women I've ever known. There really is no particular stereotype that you can put on it, and some "tradwifes" do have jobs while still wanting to do all the housework and looking after the children too, at the same time.
    Add to that the fact that while some women will successfully "push" to be the stay-at-home, others (if not many) will go against their inclination and submit either to their partners reluctance to scaling back or the common societal pressure that women be working.

    I'm reminded of the cartoon (can't find it right now) where a husband comes home to find an absolute disaster zone in the home, and asks his wife (who is reading in the bedroom) "What happened here?!" to which she replies "you know how you ask me what I do all day? Today I didn't do it."
