You have hit a hot button with me! Currently, our culture defines equality as saying that a woman can be at good at being a man as a man is. I am sorry, but that is not equality. Equality is when female gender traits are valued as equal to male gender traits. I don't want to be a man. I want to be valued as an equal exactly as I am -- a nurturer who puts my family first. Instead, society tells me that I am only valued if I have accomplishments in the work world. OMFG. How is happy, healthy, functional children not considered an accomplishment in our society?????

It's kind of disheartening that this is put into a context of "submission" though. There is nothing submissive about being a mother!

I absolutely agree!
