How dare a woman let herself go after giving birth!  

I'm hoping I can send some PO'ed feminists over to the Daily Mail Online to leave negative comments on a highly offensive opinion piece written by Helen Kirwan-Taylor, entitled "Why DO babies turn so many brilliant women into slummy mummies?" The title basically explains it.

It might sound brutal, but this is a short, but crucial juncture in any relationship. Women have to see that their marriage matters as much as their children.

At a time when divorce is on the rise and families are breaking up, it seems even more important for women to --consider their other halves.

Men have a profound interest in their own children, but they also have adult sexual human urges - women ignore them at their peril.

When a woman puts her child first, she is making a choice.

For every mother with greasy hair and a flabby bum (even though she can afford gym membership) who has lost interest in herself and the world, there is a husband ready to go on the prowl.

Apparently, women exist to look purdy for their menfolk, and the second a woman starts slacking on that responsibility, it is not by any means the fault of the man should he end up in bed with his secretary, because it was his wife who was stupid enough to gain 15 pounds and let her roots show.

What next?

    Oy, maybe that's an indication the menfolk aren't doing their damn part in raising the children and giving their spouse enough time to ... Whatever.

    Ugh. If your relationship is based upon only physical attraction and not doing things together...

    Where's the guys dressing up, going to the gym, feeding the baby at 3am and pulling extra off days from work, too? Putting on makeup and wearing fancy pants for his wife's interest?

    Oh please. I lost brain cells reading this intellectually dishonest crap.

    Something tells me the author has benefit of a male nanny and has never sat up all night with a sick child. "When a woman puts her child first she is making a choice" and she is blamed and defamed for it and when she doesn't put her child first she is blamed and defamed for that too.

    This pontificating as to what women "should" do must stop. Women are dying every year from what is called domestic violence in numbers that make the Iraq war look tame and we're blogging about this??? Give me a fucking break.

    Now let me go tell Bruno to put on his cowboy outfit and fix me some grub and when he's done with that he can paint my toe nails. If he's a good boy I'll let him run the vacuum before bed time.
