Wanting to be a Housewife in a Feminist World

 

Hi, my name is Adora. I don’t know how much you know about me. Here are things that I want in my life. I want a family. I want to be a mother of four children possibly. I want to stay at home. Most importantly, I want to be far from traditional but traditional as I can be.

I grew up in a not so typical Asian family home. I mean there were things that would be more conservative and more traditional. However, about 75% of my childhood and my entire life is not typical to what other asian people live by.

I want to give a shoutout to my amazing and loving parents, both of them. My mom has constantly provided me more of nurturing (when I was young), mature (treated me appropriate to my age), and just friendliness (being more of a close friend as I got older). Of course, I also have to talk about my dad, and although he is the most conservation out of my 4 member family bunch, he is definitely the guidance in my life. Without him, I wouldn’t have realized my potential and especially how a man should treat their partner. My parents are the very much reason why I am who I am today. I definitely think that’s why I want to be on the more conservative side of things.

I sure am a split image of my parents. They have been the sole makers of who I am today. Although they are hugely responsible for giving me my life foundation, I definitely have my more liberal ideas that stray from my family, which I influence my sister a lot about. The only thing I seem to want to follow like my parents is have me (when and if I become a mother) a huge part of my children’s lives. I want to be so present in their lives. I want to be able to stay at home with the babies till they are at least 3 to 4. I just wanted to provide what my parents gave to me to my own children.

I don’t think I give a much better gift to the world *all my opinion* than being an amazing parent. For some reason, this generation of women has to insisted to be liberated and “feminist”. I don’t see how being a housewife makes you less of a feminist. I still have my views, and I definitely still have my willpower to make a little or some of a difference. Just because you do things that are more “traditional” or conservative, it shouldn’t define you. Every person isn’t just a parent, student, or child. We all have a list of things, characteristics, and names that we are, and I feel like just because I chose to be something in the past, it shouldn’t make people think I am less of women-powering person. I can still try to do the things that empowers women while being a stay-at-home mom, when I do become a mom.

That’s just my opinion.
