I want a wife...

I'm currently writing a 1500 word essay on a "Caged Bird' By Dr. Maya Angelou and "I want a wife" By Judy Brady

The essay I want a wife is a  motivation piece it can show a man should really respect all that his wife or significant other does for him and learn to appreciate all the hard work that she puts in while we are at work or at school. It is very accurate as well as reflective. So I decided to copy and paste it so those that never read it can read enjoy....

JUDY BRADY
I Want a Wife (1971)
Judy Brady’s essay became an instant classic when it appeared in 1971 in the premier issue of the feminist magazine Ms. As you read, analyze the definitions of “husband” and “wife” that Brady uses, and consider why this essay became so powerful in the 1970s.
I belong to that classification of people known as wives. I am A Wife. And, not al- together incidentally, I am a mother.
Not too long ago a male friend of mine appeared on the scene fresh from a recent divorce. He had one child, who is, of course, with his ex-wife. He is look- ing for another wife. As I thought about him while I was ironing one evening, it suddenly occurred to me that I, too, would like to have a wife. Why do I want a wife?
I would like to go back to school so that I can become economically inde- pendent, support myself, and, if need be, support those dependent upon me. I want a wife who will work and send me to school. And while I am going to school I want a wife to take care of my children. I want a wife to keep track of the chil- dren’s doctor and dentist appointments. And to keep track of mine, too. I want a wife to make sure my children eat properly and are kept clean. I want a wife who will wash the children’s clothes and keep them mended. I want a wife who is a good nurturant attendant to my children, who arranges for their schooling, makes sure that they have an adequate social life with their peers, takes them to the park, the zoo, etc. I want a wife who takes care of the children when they are sick, a wife who arranges to be around when the children need special care, be- cause, of course, I cannot miss classes at school. My wife must arrange to lose time at work and not lose the job. It may mean a small cut in my wife’s income from time to time, but I guess I can tolerate that. Needless to say, my wife will arrange and pay for the care of the children while my wife is working.
I want a wife who will take care of my physical needs. I want a wife who will keep my house clean. A wife who will pick up after my children, a wife who will pick up after me. I want a wife who will keep my clothes clean, ironed, mended, replaced when need be, and who will see to it that my personal things are kept in their proper place so that I can find what I need the minute I need it. I want a wife who cooks the meals, a wife who is a good cook. I want a wife who will plan the menus, do the necessary grocery shopping, prepare the meals, serve them pleasantly, and then do the cleaning up while I do my studying. I want a wife who will care for me when I am sick and sympathize with my pain and loss of time from school. I want a wife to go along when our family takes a vacation so that someone can continue to care for me and my children when I need a rest and change of scene.

2 BRADY I Want a Wife

I want a wife who will not bother me with rambling complaints about a wife’s duties. But I want a wife who will listen to me when I feel the need to ex- plain a rather difficult point I have come across in my course of studies. And I want a wife who will type my papers for me when I have written them.
I want a wife who will take care of the details of my social life. When my wife and I are invited out by my friends, I want a wife who will take care of the babysitting arrangements. When I meet people at school that I like and want to entertain, I want a wife who will have the house clean, will prepare a special meal, serve it to me and my friends, and not interrupt when I talk about things that in- terest me and my friends. I want a wife who will have arranged that the children are fed and ready for bed before my guests arrive so that the children do not bother us. I want a wife who takes care of the needs of my guests so that they feel comfortable, who makes sure that they have an ashtray, that they are passed the hors d’oeuvres, that they are offered a second helping of the food, that their wine glasses are replenished when necessary, that their coffee is served to them as they like it. And I want a wife who knows that sometimes I need a night out by myself.
I want a wife who is sensitive to my sexual needs, a wife who makes love pas- sionately and eagerly when I feel like it, a wife who makes sure that I am satisfied. And, of course, I want a wife who will not demand sexual attention when I am not in the mood for it. I want a wife who assumes the complete responsibility for birth control, because I do not want more children. I want a wife who will remain sexually faithful to me so that I do not have to clutter up my intellectual life with jealousies. And I want a wife who understands that my sexual needs may entail more than strict adherence to monogamy. I must, after all, be able to relate to people as fully as possible.
If, by chance, I find another person more suitable as a wife than the wife I al- ready have, I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one. Natu- rally, I will expect a fresh new life; my wife will take the children and be solely re- sponsible for them so that I am left free.
When I am through with school and have a job, I want my wife to quit work- ing and remain at home so that my wife can more fully and completely take care of a wife’s duties.
My God, who wouldn’t want a wife?

Sex With A Capricorn Man :-)

The word horny, meaning easily aroused, comes from the horns of a goat. The connection fits the Capricorn man. He has a strong sex drive. The Capricorn man first wants passion and sex, and then affection.It is a sign that is mindful of the status of his woman, girlfriend, or wife. A major turn-on for a Capricorn guy is being with a classy woman. The phrase “a lady in the parlor and a vixen in the bedroom” is a perfect description of the Capricorn man's taste in women. Capricorn men value decorum and a woman who dresses tastefully and usually conservatively.Capricorn men will not make the first move unless they are 99 percent sure of success. With the water signs, such as Cancerand Pisces, men don't make the first move because they may be too sensitive and won't easily recover from a rebuff.The Capricorn man is tougher, but doesn't put time and energy into pursuit unless there is a very good chance of having the sexual encounter he desires. The Cap man is happy with sed…

story behind Tupac Against all odds its deep!

What many may not realize, is that Shakur implicated more people in the shooting than just Biggie and Puff Daddy (now known as P Diddy). In the song "Against All Odds", he confesses and drops names on several other people, including Jimmy Henchman, King Tut (aka Walter Johnson), and Haitian Jack. Jimmy Henchman is a music manager who has ties with Bad Boy Records. Word on the streets is that Henchman secured a deal between Bad Boy Records and BMF (Black Mafia Family), in which BMF would fund Bad Boy and help Diddy start his label, in exchange for protection (muscle) and paid royalties. King Tut and Haitian Jack were both affiliated with BMF. Haitian Jack was the codefendant in Tupac's sexual abuse case, while King Tut had approached Tupac a few years earlier while on the set for the movie Above the Rim. Tut had allegedly tried to pressure 2pac into signing with Bad Boy. So Tupac had suspected that Haitian Jack had set him up with the rape case, and that the woman who acc…
