Gripe of the Day

I hate that in modern society, the term homemaker seems to be synonymous with loser, leech, or lazy.  Why, as a supposedly evolved culture, is taking care of one’s household and/or children viewed so negatively?  There seems to be a stigma attached to being a homemaker in the 21st century.  The response to the admission of being a homemaker usually is met with an overwhelming backlash of horrified and disgusted looks, as well as comments to the effect of, “Oh, so you don’t work?”, “Can’t you get a job?”, “When are you going to start working?”, etcetera, etcetera.
