What do Stay-at-home Moms Do?: Matt Walsh takes a pointed and at times hilarious look at the upside-down priorities the world has for moms. Warning: the first sentence of this post contains the word “damn” and not in reference to the thing that holds back water. Just thought I would warn you.

“This conversation shouldn’t be necessary. I shouldn’t need to explain why it’s insane for anyone — particularly other women — to have such contempt and hostility for “stay at home” mothers. Are we really so shallow? Are we really so confused? Are we really the first culture in the history of mankind to fail to grasp the glory and seriousness of motherhood? The pagans deified Maternity and turned it into a goddess. We’ve gone the other direction; we treat it like a disease or an obstacle.” -Matt Walsh
