According to Pew Research Center, the share of women ages eighteen to thirty-four that say having a successful marriage is one of the most important things in their lives rose nine percentage points since 1997 – from 28 percent to 37 percent. For men, the opposite occurred. The share voicing this opinion dropped, from 35 percent to 29 percent.A lot of people, women especially, are still on the fence. But they won't be for long, not once they begin to see what the real price of all those educated women and all their important careers turns out to be. The terrible thing is that this state of affairs was not only predictable, it's not even unprecedented.
In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, "We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!"
But it's a surprisingly good article and the author is correct. The solution is simple. Women have only to decide to be women, not ersatz, incompetent men. As she writes: "Fortunately, there is good news: women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature – their femininity – and let men surrender to theirs."
Or, they can continue to cling to the myths of equality and grrrl power and descend into barbarism. That's an option too.
