Traditional Gender Roles, Benevolent Sexism, and VIS's Personal Journal

Unexpectedly, I seem to have returned, at least for the time being.
I’ve missed the comments from my followers, but more than anything, I’ve missed being able to just drop little nuggets of advice that pop into my head throughout my day.
I don’t regret deleting my blog. It was what I needed at the time to feel cleansed and, to be honest, I was pretty convinced that with 8,000 followers, a lot of them were bots and troublemakers.
So, for now, I’ll be writing a few things here and there. I’m sure you will have seen a lot of it previously if you followed my blog before “the reset,” but I’ll try to word everything a different way so things don’t get stale for you.
You’ve Probably Been Told That Being a Homemaker is the
Worst Career Choice You Can Make – But Think Again
We live in a society that pressures young women to go into
fields like business and law. Businesswomen
and lawyers spend $300 per month on lattes, $2,000 – $3,000 per month on
lunches, and a $500 for a vintage outfit, and $250 for maid service. A good homemaker can provide delicious custom
lattes to herself and her husband for less than $30 per month, excellent
deli–quality lunches for less than $150 per month, can create a unique vintage
outfit for herself for under $50, and the only expense involved in keeping the
home clean is buying the cleaning products.
You see, being a homemaker is a great deal different than
what you’ve been taught; it’s not the
lazy, stupid route that feminists would have you believe. As the Operations Manager of a home, the
homemaker must be sure to lower expenses of the home without sacrificing
quality (sounds like the job of a CEO if you think about it). The extra money that the homemaker saves can
be spent by her husband on home improvements, buying her new appliances, improving
the garden, new pots and pans, Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, even
vacations for the two of you.
It’s not as glamorous as being a businesswoman or
lawyer? That depends on how glamorous
you make it. Why can’t you go about your
homemaking duties dressed in heels and a vintage dress with pearls and full
You don’t get as much recognition from your boss if you’re a
homemaker? Nonsense. As a homemaker, your boss gives you sex,
gifts, shoes, flowers, you name it. If
that’s not recognition, tell me what is.
Learning to cook, clean, sew, and sexually pleasure your
husband are critical skills. And while
some may come more naturally than others, these skills are essential to the
smooth and efficient operation of the home.
Here on Tumblr, we see a lot of “stay home and suck dick”
memes which is a great sexual fantasy, but it doesn’t do much to improve the
man’s financial standing in the world. Your
husband can’t be considered successful if you are nothing more than a sexual
toy. Just staying home and pleasuring
your husband is the job of a housewife – a homemaker’s job is much more
difficult. Cooking, cleaning, sewing,
gardening, laundry, ironing, medicine, organization – these are critical skills
to the homemaker.
So the next time you’re told that “being a housewife is a
job for losers”, you can quietly giggle knowing that you’ll be dressed in
unique, stylish clothes, eating restaurant level food for every meal, enjoying
top–quality lattes, coffees, and teas, all while looking spectacular doing it.
Homemaker is a loser job?
No. An hour long commute only to
spend half your day’s wages on clothes, coffee, and food is for losers.
