i think i disagree with the statement about motherhood being a subservient state to needs & desires of others. i prefer the creative connotations of that word in every sense, reminiscent of "authority" coming from root word "author."


and i wouldn't want sameness, that wouldn't be the optimal outcome of relations between genders for me. besides creative i prefer vibrant and shifting when it comes to the social roles stuff, and respect and recognition. i did agree with the "healthiest ones are those who place a high value on contribution of any kind" though.


but i too want to hear more in this series from women in code-writing roles. just seems that this is the place for those perspectives to be paramount, though i think there's also room for those of women in other roles in technology.

    "i think i disagree with the statement about motherhood being a subservient state to needs & desires of others."

    Fair enough. I'd suggest that it is, if only from a biological perspective, e.g. a woman's body creates food for her infant whether or not she intends to bottle feed.

    Thank you for yorur comments.
