Ser dona-de-casa não é só fazer o jantar


Laura Wood Vintage web“When a man is a homemaker he becomes a slave to a woman in a sense in which a woman who is a homemaker does not become a slave, unless the man mistreats her and does not appreciate her. The reason for this is that a woman’s power in the world comes largely by virtue of her interpersonal influence. This influence is a force in the home, in the larger family and in the community.

A man can rarely radiate this same kind of influence. He is naturally less attuned to relationships, to the niceties of social life and to the ornamental side of the physical environment. So the male homemaker has less power than the female homemaker. Being a homemaker entails far more than simply babysitting and making dinner.

Patriarchy offsets this dynamic and prevents the woman from subjugating the man.”
