I hate to be the one to ring this bell but "convenience" living is one of the most detrimental aspects of modern life. Think about this.....40 years ago, would you ever have seen a 5 year old child still wearing diapers? Of course not. We rinsed and washed and folded cloth diapers so there was an incentive to get our children potty trained as soon as possible. 12 to 15 months was the norm. I just saw an add for disposable diapers for the 60 to 100 lb child. Other than cases of children with nightime bladder problems, this is an abomination. When I saw this ad, it led me to think about the detrimental effect of "convenience." Of course, being an old time feminist, I was one of the ones telling women they could "have it all." I was right but the part that I didn't know at the time was that you can have it all just not all at the same time. As women left the home for outside work, we needed as much time and labor saving convenience as possible. We got those but they came with a price - in dollars and cents. Now we've become prisoner to those very handy but expensive conveniences that we demanded as we had less time available to maintain our households and our families. The result of the high cost of convenience is that working is no longer the option we early feminist envisioned but now a necessity. Fewer and fewer families can exist on a one partner wage. How sad that the dream of having choices available to everyone, mainly women since we didn't put too much consideration into the options available to men, has turned into the shackles that limit our choices even more than they were through the 1970's and 1980's. Don't misunderstand, I still support a woman's right to choices but I am dismayed that we are once again in bondage.
