I find this to be dis-heartening and sad.. Why would you not want your daughter to have every single opportunity that she possibly could in this life.. catholic or not, this is just appaling.
Here are the basic reasons there is more indepth info in the article
- She will attract the wrong types of men.
- She will be in a near occasion of sin.
- She will not learn to be a wife and mother
- The cost of a degree is becoming more difficult to recoup.
- You don’t have to prove anything to the world.
- It could be a near occasion of sin for the parents.
- She will regret it.
- It could interfere with a religious vocation.

@Kandiss16: That’s a bunch of bible-thumping bullshit. Horrible. I just hope there aren’t actually human beings who agree with that article.

This makes me really really sad. I plan on raising my daughters (if I have any) to be independent, free-thinking women who will be able to make smart and self-respecting decisions. This list is crap.

I notice it’s always the girls who oughtn’t go to school, never the boys. With a list like this, it almost all applies. Might meet the wrong kind of women, near occasion of sin, cost of degree, could interfere wiyh vocation, etc. but apparently, boys aren’t as tempted and men need college, no matter the cost. Appallingly sexist and alarmingly backwards.

What a disgusting, laughable website. Even has a section for “feminist lies.”

@Kandiss16: Absolutely ridiculous. I understand and respect other people’s religion but that is just crazy. That is definitely ignorance and not really based on religous beliefs.

@Kandiss16: That blogger is NOT mainstream.
Sometimes I think that it is a waste for a woman to go to school and then stay home and have babies. Like why get all educated and then not use it? I say this as a college educated woman who had these thoughts before attending college and now, 13 years out from undergrad, recently had a similar conversation with a girlfriend about it.
We need to make it possible for women to 1) get educated and 2) find affordable childcare so they can follow their dreams if that dream includes a professional life.

I agree with #4, but that’s the case for everyone and not just girls.
