    The human race wouldn't be here if it weren't for mothers. It may be the toughest job, but it's literally the most important job for our race.

    That video was funny and spot on. This prompts me to finish my rant.

    Every so often we hear women complain that raising children isn't valued enough. Which, in a sense, is absolutely true. A couple can hire some high school kid to babysit their kids while they go to the movies and pay them a pittance. Au pairs and women who work in child day care facilities don't make squat, etc.

    But the problem is that women who raise this issue are confusing value with importance. Yes, raising children is critical to the human race so it's at the top of the list for importance. But value is what we pay for things; more valuable things have a higher price. Value in this sense is simply about money. And jobs with a higher value aren't necessarily more important.

    I realized this several years ago when baseball players were threatening to go on strike and the media was reporting how much money they made. If there's anything that's truly less important to the survival of our race it's entertainment. Professional athletes and movie stars. And yet they make tons of money. They make that money because they're hard to find and replace, not because they're important.

    Whereas on the other hand, if you can dress and feed yourself you can raise children. Anybody can do it. It's less valuable, salary wise, since it's trivial to find someone who can do it.
