Because the Betty Crocker brand is on premade mixes.  A "real" 
homemaker, someone who really makes a life that way, bakes from 
scratch.  So do most SCA cooks of my acquaintance, whether they work 
inside or outside of the home.

There's a whole sociology to explore about modern womanhood, the need 
for a second income, feminism and backlash, but possibly this is not the 
forum in which to do so.  If you are happy with your life, nobody else 
has boo to say about it.  That's Freedom, Baby!  <smile>
