I spoketh, in part,

My grandmother's family came first and foremost. That she delayed marriage, and children, as long as she did was due to war-time need and a desire to ensure that her family would be able to take precedence. She considered her outside work to be a means to help the local community, maintain ties to that community, and help her children see that there were options. Grandma was lucky, in that all that she did outside the home was something she enjoyed doing and was, for her, an extension of her home life. That she made money doing it was nice, but not necessary.

Her mother, and her grandmother, both attended higher education -college - and considered learning a life-long and life-enhancing occupation in itself. The idea that women were not capable of learning or achieving or earning was not part of her family. The idea that men had the last word, or even, many times, the first word, was not in their psyches. Marriage and family was a joint endeavor, and each partner did what was needed, and what he-she was able to do, without thought of whose role it was.

My mother somehow ended up with a fear of poverty and a miserly atbreastude that would put Scrooge to shame, among other atbreastudes that no one else in the family shares. There was nothing in her childhood or young adulthood to attribute these fears to. Her issues and how they came to be are unknown to us kids, and to the remaining family of her age and era, as she is very good at hiding these things, re- and mis-directing enquiries, and so on. Her marriage, and divorce, cemented her idea that men were untrustworthy and useless. This was not something that was taught her, nor shown her, growing up.

My ideas and atbreastudes come more from my grandmother than my mother - except the allergy to marriage. I have worked many jobs, in different fields, (including a stint as a "fundraiser" for a group similar to NOW) and my current position, while not ideal, is a good fit. I have autonomy, a certain amount of creative freedom, work with a group of people who are, for the most part, great guys, and I make enough money to feel comfortable without being tempted by excess. There are frustrations - no matter what you do, something will always come up that isn't in the plans, is annoying, or just palin aggravates the crap out of you.

My family life, while lacking in children of my own, is rich enough to satisfy me.

I'm not PC. I'm not a feminist, but neither am I blind to the problems that women still face, both in and out of the workplace. I am myownself, and that, to me, is what is important. Not who or what I can be labeled as or aligned with.
