So…there are floating bushes everywhere. I haven’t played for a while, but that’s normal, right?
I can barely get 3 to run at this point.
I’ve been editing the residents of Sunset Valley before I start playing. I’m particularly fond of the new Pauline Wan.
I know! I don’t think they were this quick when they were still making EP’s for TS2, now they’re making both the island paradise EP and the time traveling one lol University Life is really AMAZING though :P
I saw the Island Paradise promo and I thought it was a joke. I’m a completionist when it comes to sims games, but that is too far for even me. UL though? As soon as I’m up to speed on everything else!
University Life looks pretty awesome, but I still haven’t explored all the new stuff from Seasons yet.
I didn’t even reinstall Pets or Supernatural. It was just too much
annoying shit extra stuff I barely used.
I disagree with all of this completely. There is nothing wrong with just wanting to be a mom. It’s in my nature as a woman to want to produce offspring and to provide and nurture my children for as long as I’m alive. Modern society is expecting women to go out and get jobs while…
There is no such thing as woman’s true role. The role of women throughout history is varied and effected very much by the type of society they were born into. Yes, people are biologically wired to procreate. Does that mean women are biologically wired to drop their lives in order to raise their children full time? No more than men are.
Feminism is about choice. Is it feminist to be a working, single mother? Is it feminist to have no children? Is it feminist to be a stay at home mom? Yes, yes, and yes. If a woman who chooses of her own free will to be a stay at home mother is getting negative feedback from a feminist, that feminist is missing the point entirely. This appears to have happened to you, and I’m sorry.
That said, we all stand on the shoulders of great women(and men) who gave us the right to say that we’re not just homemakers, we aren’t just ‘wired that way’, that it isn’t unnatural to want lives outside the home and away from our children. To say that women are suppose to be homemakers disregards the hard fought rights those people and that movement earned for you. We get to live our lives the way we choose because we fought for it, and because women’s lives shouldn’t be molded by the expectations of men or the expectations of societal ideals about gender roles. That choice of life includes being a stay at home mother, but that doesn’t make your life choice the ‘right choice’ because you’re female. It’s the right choice for you, because you are an individual and that would make you happy. It has nothing to do with your vagina. You are an individual before you are a woman.
That’s the whole point.
Men are also individuals before they are male. To say, point blank, that ‘men aren’t nurturing’ is insulting, simplistic, and ignorant.
I’m happy that you know what you want to do with your life, and I will fight for your right to live it the way you want, but to say that any one group of people is suppose to be a certain way is insulting. I hope you can understand why.
Even with CC. It’s so…beautiful.
Just wanted to give a brief update as to what is going on, as I don’t intend on abandoning this blog entirely.
I stopped playing TS3 around my last update because my computer was an absolute fucking wreck and the game was barely limping along. I’ve done a clean install of my OS, and although I did backup the Burkes, they are on hiatus until further notice. I’m just tired of trying to make it work right now playing a big family, you know? It was making me frustrated with the game as a whole. I backup my saved sims as well, and I can definitely foresee some of my favorites making a comeback on this blog, but a legacy(or a continuance of one) isn’t in the plans.
Sorry about the silence, guys! I’m still around,
still watching you, I’ve just got a lot of setting up to do.
Welcome to your new home, Falcon friend.
