stay at home moms in the media

so this video i found on fb via vision forums...feminism at it's finest, calling me a "neanderthal" b/c I *choose* to stay home b/c *I* feel it's best.  What is it that a woman could do that would possibly be considered more important that raising her children?  Developing their little minds...makes me a neanderthal.  well, so be it.


Palin Calls Those Who Believe Mothers of Small Children Should Be Stay at Home Moms "Neanderthals" and hopes they will "evolve. from Vision Forum on Vimeo.

I think she's calling the people who are just stirring the pot 'neanderthals' - not those who stay home.

maybe...but it just doesn't sit well. sounded to me like she called those in support of staying home neanderthals...

I couldn't get the video to play. I'm not much of a Palin fan anyway, but, whatever.

We'll just be backwards stay at home moms and send our children out to take over the world! I'm mostly playing...

My husband and I have listened to it 3 times now because I am a Sarah supporter. We are agreeing with Cara. I think the way she phrased it made it sound like she was calling those of us who believe in staying at home neanderthals. I really hope that it is a matter of phrasing. I stayed home with my children, my daughter is staying home with her children and I am proud of every one of you who makes motherhood your priority.
