Bharat Mahan wrote an interesting comment at A Voice For Men about tradcon women:
SAHMs are SAHBs – stay at home bloggers.
All the “traditional housewives” I’ve seen trying to infilitrate the Manosphere did so simply to garner compliments from men while their husbands were out at work.
And the men took the bait.
Everytime Alte or Twerk or whoever talked about “homesteading” or home schooling or type up their Menu Plan Mondays with food porn, the men would respond with, “good to know there are still good, solid women like you out there” and “your husband is one lucky man”.
Now tell me, how can you “homestead” and home school when you’re blogging and surfing the Manosphere all day long?
What is behind the phenomenon that Bharat Mahan is talking about should be obvious. Being a stay at home mother in a modern first world country is make work job for women (just like most workplace jobs are make work jobs for women). Since being a SAHM is a make work job, what happens can be best described by the saying “idle hands are the devil’s workshop/playground”. The supposed SAHMs spend all their days blogging, and this part of the internet is not immune to this.
We need to recognize this for what it is so we should stop using the term, stay at home mothers. We should use the term, stay at home bloggers, instead, since that more accurately describes their situation. These women aren’t doing vital work. They’re blogging all day because they have nothing better to do.
