Stay at Home Moms, Gun Rights, and an Attack on a Culture of Women’s Consent

An interesting article from buzzfeed today, addresses and debunks an article from New York Magazine focused on stay at home moms. While there are well-educated women who are choosing to stay at home, the vast majority of women who do so are doing it out of necessity rather than choice. Most stay at home mothers actually live on a household income of less than $25,000 a year and stay at home because they cannot afford child care. Read all about it here.

In other news, an article from the New York Times discusses the relationship between gun violence and violence against women. Read about it here.

Finally, is the recent Steubenville rape an example of a greater degradation of the culture of women’s consent in America? The rapists blatantly recorded their crime via Twitter and other social media, seemingly indicating they were unaware they were doing anything wrong at all. Read about it here.
