Why some modern women oppose women’s rights

Article here. Excerpt:

'In the past decade, feminism has been hit with some serious backlash — and it’s not just coming from men. Many women are against it, too.
"There are struggles women are facing, like how do we make time for career advancement and a family and a personal life. Their argument is that women were never supposed to be doing that anyway. For them this idea of returning and fighting against feminism is that they’re empowering women to do what they want,” McKeon said.

That notion manifests differently in the various women McKeon spoke to. Some, like Holly Connors, who runs the Modern Day 50s Housewife Blog, think women should revert to their perceived 1950s roles. The creed on her Web site states, “My humble service to my family is my greatest contribution for my life.” Connors claims that feminism forced families to become dual income and she feels “feminists look on women who want to be stay-at-home moms with disgust.”'

Well I can speak only for myself. My take: If you want to have kids and stay home all day, why do you expect, nay, feel entitled to have your lifestyle choice financed by me? YOU want the kids, not me. As for staying home all day, gee, I'd like to do that, too. But there is this thing called EARNING a living. You need to contribute to society, not leech off it. Well, you can leech off it if you want. Just don't expect me to finance it. I have enough ppl leeching off me via welfare. I don't need a housewife-leech to do the same. Plus once wifey decides to change life-direction and divorce me, I get shafted.
