Purpose of experiment:
Many “Biblical womanhood” women, especially of the Quiverfull variety, claim that “feminists” neglect their children, while they love theirs. By this standard, attention to children is good (I agree) and neglecting them is bad. (I agree.) If their hypothesis holds out, the average child of a feminist mother would remember less personal attention from Mum than the average child of a biblical womanhood supporter.
1) Go and ask a few teenage children of self-admitted feminists, still in mum’s home, and adult children, no longer under Mum’s wing, these questions:
a) “Please estimate, in hours and minutes, how much time your mother spend (teens)/spent (adults) with you as an individual, per week.
b) On a scale of 1 to 10, how well did your parents provide for your physical needs -food, medical attention, clothing, etc.?”
2) Then ask the same questions to teenage and out of home adult children of staunch biblical womanhood supporters.
3) Compare the numbers.
The first question is because attention to a group called “your children” may still leave the individual child very much neglected, the second for obvious reasons.
Unlike the selfishness experiment, I don’t have the means to perform this one. But my bet would be that some of the Quiverfull women who condemn others for neglecting children leave the needs of more children neglected way more often.
