It's almost impossible to believe that just 100 years ago there were actually women out there who woke up in the morning and spent 8+ hours doing genuine chores like scrubbing clothes on a washboard, preparing and preserving food, stitching and repairing textiles, carrying pails of water from the pump/well, cleaning fireplaces, and carefully counting money and actually budgeting a household responsibly. And they didn't even complain about it.
And they were actually the majority of women.

Just the idea of a modern woman behaving even close to that is fricking preposterous.

    It's almost as impossible to believe that there were men out there that did a lot of labor to ensure the place was heated, his wife had the resources to keep the homestead going, work the fields to ensure a good harvest, did lots of animal husbandry, made money, hunted for food, dug wells, built buildings for the family and others, and all other sorts of homestead issues. And they didn't even complain about it. And they were actually the majority of men.

    Just the idea of a modern man behaving even close to that is fricking preposterous.

      You act as if men like that don't exist when they're the majority still kek. I worked in an industrial heavy job and all man there are exactly like that, the difference is that the women do way less and expect way more

      Hilarious that nobody replied to this comment. We all know the incel b***hes are more comfortable with their imaginary LARP than actually living the way our ancestors did.

      And the funniest irony is how our ancestors actually wished for an easier load for their children. It's a testament to how complacent we have grown about our comfort. These gays take it all for granted and cry with a full mouth.
      All of that because Stacy doesn't want to frick ugly ass weebs.

        I didn't answer because it's dumb. I worked in a heavy place for 4 months and left to build my own digital business. Most people there had back problems, one guy 2 years older than me had to do surgery on his back, barely could walk and was in a legal fight with the company. I moved almost 10 tons everyday by HAND, if you think that amount of work is similar to just keeping your virginity, staying home and cleaning you're an utter moron. Principally now that cleaning shit got technically more advanced, besides food and kids you'd spend like 1-2 hours doing chores.

          In the past you didn't have that choice. You would most likely went to school until 10-12 and then thrown into a factory. You only want the good parts from the past but you completely ignore the bad ones

            homie, despite doing all of that, you still haven't come close to knowing the miserable conditions your great grandparents lived through.

            Yes, my work was light compared with previous generations, but it was still way harder than just being a housewife. Housewife nowadays are only hard when you have a kid, besides that the machine do 90% of the job.
            My sister complains that she washes my clothes but you literally just need 3 minutes to throw the clothes in the machine, put some chemicals and close it. When she forgets to wash it and the chest gets full I put it to wash and that's it, it isn't like old times where you'd spend the whole day washing clothes by hand besides the rives

            Just as today, some people were auto mechanics (or some other type of mechanic), plumbers, builders, factory workers, restaurateurs, office drones, janitors, painters, miners, engineers, etc. Not everyone was stuck in the sort of job you imagine.

    I need a farmwife gf so bad. We get up at the crack of dawn and feed the animals. She milks and and does the women chores. Big breakfast; a pint of fresh milk still warm from the tiddy, four eggs, a fat slab of bacon or ham, and toast from yesterday's bread. I walk the perimeter to make sure fence is still good then play in the shop or field until time for a couple beers and lunch, another delicious meal infused with love made from ingredients that come from the property I own. Finish up and put away the tools, taking time to inspect and oil or hone anything that needs it as they'll have to last and be passed on to my son's. I feed the animals and do another look around before dinner. A huge pot of beans and cornbread, wife serves it to me and I see she purposely fished out a couple extra pieces of salt pork for my plate. We sit on the porch swing after to share a couple drinks before retiring too bed. A quick bit of lovemaking then drift off to dreamland. The wiener crows at 0430 and we get to do it all over again.
    Church on Sundays, market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A routine, season, and place for everything.

        That's the fun part because it emphasizes the size of the land. So big you have to look at it twice a day. It's kind of implied that mending fences, shooting unwelcome critters, removing weeds, cutting trees, curing potatoes, pressing grapes, starting seeds, boiling sweet sorghum juice, splitting logs, rotating grazing areas, running the still, etc. takes place as it's needed. There's an awful lot of chores to be done in a year. She's not just milking and then cooking all day either. Making cheese, canning, sewing, basketry, budgeting, it's more work than a man can ever hope to do all by himself.
        Very low character limit here so I can't just add every little detail of the tradlarp homestead. The point is ekeing out a living from the land together, loving each other and loving what we do.

            How do you think it works then? Keebler elves do everything and farmers just kick back in their rocking chairs watching? Pigs take turns butchering each other? Apples magically resist worms and levitate into baskets? Or do you believe a fairy waves her wand and food just magically spawns in grocery stores?

            you don't have a variety of crops or multiple kinds of animals. you either grow some monoculture or keep one kind of animal. also there is a good chance that you don't own any kind of property and work for another guy that has it

            ofc you should cycle crops but nowadays no one cares and pumps the earth full of fertilizer. industrial farming isn't beautiful and idyllic

            Industrial farming is a job. Subsistence farming is the different thing I had in mind. You're pretending to be poor but enjoying a different kind of wealth. You know, like little house on the prairie books. If I wanted an actual job I'd be a nurse or something. No use farming if it's not going to be romantic.
            But even coworker's stories about growing up in the delta share cropping which sounded pretty shit still has some charm. It's like a shitty version of homesteading in that they ate from the garden and animals they had. If not for having to produce a huge surplus to keep a roof over their heads I'd say they had it made. Big families, community, and genuine purpose. I don't get any sort of fulfillment working in a hospital treating the same revolving door dkas, heart failures, cabgs, and didn't feel like going to my last dialysis appointment's knowing full well they'll be noncompliant and wind up right back in the icu again until the disease finally outruns the reach of medicine. Do some compassion, patch them up, three more patients right after in a never ending stream.
            Anything but local food production for myself, family, and maybe a little extra for pocket money feels pointless.

            I think it's just a retirement dream. Seems easy if you just have enough money for land, tools, and cushioning so you know you won't get filtered by the learning curve. Won't actually starve because of not planting enough potatoes or a skunk got in the chicken pen. Just got to try and hold onto a healthy body so that at 40 or 50 when it becomes possible I'm not too frail to work outside all day. My great grandmother was somehow in her 80's still chasing chickens and putting up food every year. But people were built different back then. You can look around now and see plenty of 50 year olds who probably can't climb a ladder or walk five miles safely. In some ways farmlife must keep you young even if you look beat to shit.

    I still don't understand why the lot of you won't go to an amish community to knock on their door and beg to be let it.
    What amazes me is the fact that you got options to live in communities or join churches that align with your moral and societal beliefs, but ohh no! Looks like you'll have to sacrifice the porn, the computer and the videogames for that and the moment this bargain prsents itself on the table, the deal is immediately off.

    So all you do is stay isolated in mom's basement, finding comfort in your virtual echo chamber where you can talk shit forever and never do anything to fullfill your dream.
