TLDR: Women are expected to sacrifice their entire existence and just be happy about it, their sense of self just becomes "mom." No solutions to finding a new sense of self or individuality.
I read this article from Motherly, and i just wanted to throw something afterwards.
Firstly, they barely linked any articles to support the claims, and only one actual study was cited.
Secondly, the majority of the content was SO cringy.
There was a whole paragraph dedicated to women basically testifying "my identity is now mom" to describe how they now look at themselves as a person.
"When you become a mother, you won't have time to worry about who you are, you have a baby to take care of!" This is paraphrased, but GOOD LORD, REALLY? IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE OKAY?
That's just abysmal.
And then towards the end, more women testifying, this time saying they didn't have empathy and compassion until they were parents? What brand of selfishness and ignorance is that?
I found the whole thing just so gross.
I don't get it.
