I couldn't help it. I followed the link from HuffPo to Forbes and had to slow down and gawk.
The essay that started it didn't really offend me. The author clearly has a case of Cliff Clavin Syndrome: "It's a little known fact, Normie, but marrying one of those career girl vixens shrinks your manly parts until all you have are two cocktail olives and a gherkin pickle! Studies prove it!"
Interestingly, in the article "career girls" are defined as women with college degrees who make over $30,000 a year and work over 35 hours a week, which covers just about any woman with an education and a job, including all of the women in traditionally female careers like teaching, nursing, executive assistants, paralegals, and the like. So this isn't about the big bad shark career woman stomping holes in her babies with her stiletto heels, on her way to the corner office. (The boogy-woman of boy-man nightmares.) Or about being a working mommy. It's working that is the issue. It's any woman who uses the education she paid for to do the job she trained to do. Teachers, go home! Nurses, quit now! Save your marriages, renounce your foul ambition to educate children and heal the sick, and go home to spend your days cleaning the house and washing the skidmarks out of your pathetic little boy-man hubby's drawers, because there lies true marital happiness! This guy is a joke.
It's silly, it's biased, it's insulting to men and women alike. So the article was a roll-eyes and move on. But the comments - holy shit. The level of misogynistic venom in some of the comments is scary. Read at your own risk. And it's not really about working women - it's about women in general. They are evil bitches and the only way to have a happy home is to pick a woman with no ambition and keep her your economic prisoner. There are a lot of believers in that philosophy in those comments.
