No men sacrificing for ages is not an appeal for tradition it is recognition of reality. If one wants something there are consequences. The appeal for mandated maternity leave is simply demanding the success without the sacrifice and work.
That is the greatest value of our society...the ability, the right and the accompanying responsibility of all segments to make their own choices.
...and interactions between people being tangible IS society... government has nothing to do with it.
In this instance society is abstract... not as a real entity though and in this instance that is why government intervention is needed.Society is only an abstract concept again it cannot treat anyone bad or good
People choose when and how to interact yes government has everything to do with it when you and others call for government force to be applied to specific interactions.
Society is always an abstract concept and nothing more which is why there is no good for society or bad for society and government intervention for the sake of society is nothing more than thinly veiled tyranny.
Unfortunately, there is a group...liberals/progressives/Democrats...who think it should be the other way around. As a result, they use this "society" argument to aid them in enabling the government to be the master instead of the servant.
Sure. Female employment is too high anyway.
Seriously, "required" is an ugly word.
women dont have to do anything
they CHOOSE to do something
hard to be a mom when the job requires 80 hour weeks.....
hard to be a mom when you have to travel 40-50% of the time
everyone understands that women have to make these choices.....
you dont like them.....i understand
that wont change the fact that in order to get to the highest rungs in a lot of companies, you have to do the 80 hour weeks, and the travel
it sucks for everyone......not just women, everyone
making choices in life decide which paths we follow.....
i have met a few women who can do it all (career, kids, marriage) but they are fairly rare
usually one of the three gets less attention than required......
woman's choice to have a child.....and her and her partner's choice on who will care for said child
but the EMPLOYER has zero to do with their decision......
