God fucking forbid women be paid to work at home.
Is how it ignores all the cultural expectations of being a homemaker.
Of fucking course they were depressed and miserable. Y’all don’t understand that life.
literally anything, everything, was a competition. There was already the underlying idea that homemakers aren’t true “workers” so everyone was trying to up each other
The shit was NEUROTIC.
I clearly remember they’d have parties for their friends and my foster mom would be...
It was wild af.
And they did this to prove they deserved “housewife UBI” 🙄

I don’t forgive her for beating a child, but I understand her panic
What if the milk ran behind furniture? What if we got bugs? What if her spouse who was paying for nothing walked in to ants on his floor?!
Neurotic unhappy housewives who beat the piss out of their kids Bc god forbid the man, the real worker, be displeased and cut everyone off and make us all homeless on a whim.
