What happens when you combine modern technology with antiquated thinking?

One blogger with some old-fashioned ideas about motherhood decided to find out.


Lori Alexander, a self-proclaimed minister and Christian blogger seems to long for "a simpler time." Like when women were property and not allowed to own property of their own or have a line of credit.


Ah, the good old days.

On her blog The Transformed Wife Lori espouses the advantages of stay-at-home motherhood and devotion to your husband in posts that read like a chapter of The Handmaid's Tale.


Lori really kicked the hornet's nest with a recent post though when she created a flow chart titled "Should Mothers Have Careers".


Straight from The Stepford Wives Training Manual, Lori's thoughts on the matter were about what you would expect.

Working mom's neglect their families while stay at home moms are so attentive that their husbands and children will eventually start praising their name while levitating in mid air. Pretty standard really.

A few people disagreed however, but were more than willing to educate Lori on some of the changes to motherhood that have occurred since the Louisiana Purchase.


The first lesson was "if you're dumb enough to think this you probably shouldn't tell anyone."







Then people reminded Lori that working moms have been crushing it for quite a while.








And whether a mom wants to work or stay at home the important part is that these days moms can decide for themselves.





But people's reactions didn't seem to have any affect on Lori who defended her views in a follow up post.




There may be no changing the minds of people like Lori, but thankfully there aren't that many left.



We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
