A man has come under fire on Facebook after claiming all stay at home mums are 'lazy gold diggers'.

In a message sent to the admin of Facebook group, Stay at Home Mums, the social media user - known only as Jonathan - said taking care of kids all day is simply 'gold digging' as men have to both work and look after children.

And the internet has gone wild over the claims, with hundreds of parents fuming over the message.

The screengrab was shared on Facebook (

"This encourages females not to be in the workplace and to rely on men. No I'm not a feminist," the message read.

"I just think women shouldn't be lazy. Men take care of kids and work a full-time job. Why shouldn't the females bring in half their weight as well?

"A relationship should be half and half. You do your part she does. Half job, half kids for each.

"Being with a man, so he can work hard and give all his money to you while you stay home with the kids is not a 'job', and not okay.

"Taking advantage of someone and treating a man like a bank is not okay. It's gold digging and it's being someone who users others."

Many mums pointed out that looking after kids is more difficult (

Followers were gobsmacked by the post. One commented: "Hahahaha. My full time job before kids was 100x easier then being a SAHM to three under three."

And another said: "From someone whose husband works full time and so do I, we also raise two kids. Let me tell you, it doesn't work! We are always falling short somewhere. Being a stay at home mum isn't lazy. It's harder! This guy is wrong on all counts."

A third pointed out: "Ohhhhh. I preferred to go to work. It was easier than staying home with the kids... maybe he should try it."

Parents were raging at the post (

One person pointed out the cost of childcare, adding: "Let's talk about childcare, Jonathan. In my state, it is $600 [£325] per child. At least. I homeschool SEVEN children. I am saving us $4,200 [£2,278] a month by staying at home and freeloading off of my husband."

Hmm, we wonder if Jonathan has ever looked after kids...
