was reading an article yesterday about capitalism and women -COME BACK IT'S NOT BORING

honest

 

anyway it ruminated for a bit on whether, if ancient people had known how children are made, would the patriarchy have evolved slightly differently so that women were pushed into one of three roles (child-havers, sex-givers or domestic service-providers)

 

gave me the wig although I suppose ancient greece was a bit like that

 

anyway, if you had to pick one of the three which would you pick?

 

I am not sure. First instinct is to say sex but you would have to do it with loads of creeps probs (who now in my mind look a bit Greek and are in togas but I am not sure if the Greeks actually did togas or if that was just the Romans)

 

maybe domestic service so I could just go home at the end of the day and watch netflix with no one prodding me with anything

ancient people did know how children are made

that's how children got made

How do you separate the child-havers from the sex-givers?

Surely its essentially promotion / demotion depending on how you look at it?

I was thinking the other day that as modern people we don't really understand what the world was like when women were pregnant all the time and died from pregnancy very often. It's something that must have shaped every society massively from top to bottom, but we're so distant from that reality it's hard to comprehend it. 

Kind of like how we have no real idea of how many momentous events in history were driven by how drunk people were. 

it’s the normal chronological sequence - giver, mother, cleaner.

The answer is all 3.

It’s only relatively recently what with the emancipation of wimmin etc that other alternatives now exist. Hurrah for the option of being a tax lawyer.
