Wow. The fact that someone wrote this means that yes some people do think this way. Glad I wasnt born into that family.

Mrs.Sawyertobe:  I couldn’t even finish  reading. 

Tell the women who have been abandonded by their husbands that they don’t need to go to college, that they can educate themselves reading on the net.

See if those same women can convice any employer that an internet education qualifies them for a decent paying job so that they can support the children their husband abandoned.

Gag me.

This floated around a while ago.  Anyone who is Catholic knows this is an extreme view point and most Catholics would heavily disagree with this idea.

I just can’t find the right words to use to explain how much I disagree with this article.

Mrs.Sawyertobe:  I am going to get flamed for this but it is hard to ignore the religous tones of that article. Sadly a lot of people think this way. I just pride myself on being progressive and challenging narrow minded thinking. The “sheeple” who subsribe to this way of thinking (not to say any specific party) will just perpetuate their own style of beliefs. We are a big world, we can just stay at different ends of the playground.

Mrs.Sawyertobe:  I do agree with them on one point- I didn’t really learn much “STUFF” in college. HOWEVER, I certainly learned more advanced CRITICAL THINKING and PROBLEM-SOLVING skills. Those are essential to the workplace and everyday life. 

I got an art degree, so my education was definitely different than those who chose subjects such as science or math, but I think we can all agree that our college experience was rewarding in some way or another. Your brain continues to grow until you are about 21, so why not keep learning? 

And to their point about women feeling that they “NEED” to use their degree, that is entirely false. I feel no inner urge to drop everything and be an art teacher or a museum curator just because it is related to my degree. Hell, I’m a real estate broker. That’s about as opposite as you can get. And I’ve considered being a stay-at-home mom when the time comes.

ZOMG. I can’t even fathom…

Ok now, I’m gonna go call up my parents and tell them I’m grateful to have them as my parents and their parenting skills that helped me (1) read the article and (2) be disgusted and (3) amused. Holy f**k.

There are just no words. Sadly, my cousins are like this. The only reason their daughter did any college at all is because it’s required in order for her to home school her kids and keep them in their little bubble too.

Soon2ElopeBee:  right? I was never made to feel that my education was any less important than my brother’s. and, guess what? He dropped out of community college after 7 years, (not a typo), and I’m earning an advanced degree.

Oh, and who watched the little video at the bottom?

Harvard Law School grad says she wishes she knew how to sew, cook without a cookbook, play the piano, etc. 

 

 

Wake up call, darling, college did not prevent you from learning any of those things. I knwo how to sew, I know how to cook well, and it’s been a while since I’ve played the piano, but I bet I still could. Having outside skills and interests are just part of being a person.

gingerkitten:  I once explained cross stitching to a group of drunk frat boys who were surprisingly impressed. If anything college made me more domestic because I was living on my own without mommy to do it all.

So males are magically immune to their reasons why women shouldn’t attend college?? Even though I would still disagree 100%, this article would make more sense if it refered to both genders and was titled “Reasons why no one should go to college”. I can’t believe thr author has the nerve to pretend that this isn’t sexist. What a load of crap.

I’m not Catholic so I couldn’t care less what this small group of them believe. It’s not hurting me so nor anyone else so…. who cares. 

I do agree with one thing a pp said, I would have more of a tendency to agree with them had they come at it from a standpoint of why neither sex should go to college, which is becoming more of a mainstream idea these days. Especially with the costs of college vs. potential earnings these day.
