My husband earns very good money, but I don't bring it up every time a tax thread or whatever comes up and complain about how much tax he pays!

    And I beg to differ, you do brag. You reveal a lot about yourself without even knowing it, obviously.
    Oh she is fully aware she is doing it. Usually it serves a purpose e.g self esteem boost. Guess its not all sunshine and roses on the other side of the fence after all. Anyway it's the Internet I'm actually a supermodel so you know money is no object.

    Its always the same people spilling their delusional thoughts on subjects they rarely know anything about with the same attitude standing on the same pedestal. *yawn* it gets old.... Yea yea you worked hard we get it.

    Especially when it's always the same content.

    KG has been told in countless threads that people find her posting style arrogant and insulting. If she continues to post in the same way, it stands to reason that people will continue to respond in the same way.

    hard work doesn't always = good income. My husband worked really hard in an abbatoirs in 2004 earning 14 bucks an hour f/t from memory? Just bc a family isn't on big money doesn't mean they don't work hard or haven't been to uni... that is a fallacy.

    I think it's also important to realise not everyone WANTS the expensive house, designer clothes, that's why many in here are SAHM's, we have sacrificed bc we feel it's what's best for *our* family.

    and I will add Vic - I have zero issue with how KG chooses to live her life, horses for courses and all that. but coming into the SAHM section telling everyone basically how lazy they are and how much money she earns and how hard she works is disingenuous.
    I agree with you 100% working hard doesn't mean good money. Plenty of hard working good people earn crap money. And I agree earning less money to stay at home raising a child is a valid and honorable role. People choose time with kids early on and aren't concerned with money good on them I say. If I only made $50 profit after childcare was paid then hell yeah I'd stay home.

    Relating things back to the OP... It's when women (and I'm not saying this had been done here) makes the choice to stay at home, then expects extra assistance (parenting payment/super) ... or complain about Tony Abbot making comments about people should work if they want extra money...that I have issues with. I also have issues when (not saying its happened here. but the odds are at least one woman on this thread fits into this category) someone stuffs around when they are young and ends up in a crappy job or no job, then complains about money.

    To some extent I also think if you chose to follow a career path that is lower paid then that's fine, but you have to live with the consequences.

    Not sure I can agree with you there. We will always need people to do low paying jobs. Someone has to empty the bins, work in a shop or god forbid teach our children. Why should they suffer because we as a society don't put a high value on what they do?
