Motherhood is a a very special thing despite attempts to sentimentalize it, demean it, or glorify it as women’s only purpose–& even if some are epic failures at it. It’s a hard job & special, sacred trust because mothers are entrusted with children & introducing them safely to a scary, complex world.
They’re trying to demean motherhood by making it a techno-electronic or rent-a-womb thing, as if one could ever replace human bonds & nurturance between woman & child.
Feminism is often accused of being anti-motherhood. On the contrary. What feminism wants is respect for women & children & for the bonds of human love.
Happy Mother’s Day.
