Isn't it a false dichotomy, though? Can't we raise kids AND raise consciousness? Or, better yet, bring our kids along WHILE raising consciousness, so we'll raise kids who care?

I'm not a mom yet, so maybe I'll feel differently later, but I really respect moms who I see do both well.

Interesting, because I hadn't read it as a false dichotomy, though I can now see why you did. I think for me (and I think you and I differ on this, to at least some extent, and that's okay), it was an affirmation that women have a special high calling raising kids, that is more important than a lot of other things that people would have us believe are more important.

I didn't mean that women can't help to raise social consciousness. I know a mom of 8 kids who probably didn't do a whole lot of social consciousness raising as a young mother, but she's raised her children to be politically active, and now the 3 oldest, who are all high school graduates (2 boys, 1 girl) are highly politically active. And I'm sure she now has more opportunity to directly be active than she did. Sure, bring along kids! My mom would take us to pro-life rallies, we'd go to homeless shelters, etc. The point, I think, is to make sure to see the value in raising up little ones. That alone can be a great gift to society.

I tried to share the comic strip on facebook and it wouldn't let me. It said some FB users have flagged this offensive. Thought you'd like to know! I shared the link to your blog instead. :)
