Opting In?

Interesting commentary on Lisa Belkin’s New York Times article about Sarah Palin and motherhood:

I know this is something that I have struggled with since I’ve become a mother – passing judgment and being judged. I also know that my partner has occasionally dealt with being judged by colleagues or family for his active role as a parent. Regardless of the structure of your family, or who is doing the caretaking, I think this is a relevant issue for everyone, and having a woman with five children and a non-traditional care-giving family structure may do something about bringing it into the spotlight. Thoughts?
