Oh, so NOW it’s an opinion

While Elizabeth Corcoran’s ‘counterpoint’ is entertaining, she forgot to mention that this sexist excuse for news was first found under Forbes careers and leadership sections.

Unacceptable.

Completely unacceptable

Agreed.
Not nearly good enough. My decision to cancel my company’s 3 subscriptions has not changed. If that ‘opinion’ is what drives the editorial decisions at Forbes, I can do without their advice. It seems it might be some 35 years late.

Total dork. Get a clue.
Um, I think there are more important issues in the world right now than whether or not Amanda’s midwestern church-inspired morals are offended by an article asserting that women with careers have more difficulty with marriage. This is not exactly a shocker. Not sure why you’re all bent out of shape. Go do something to improve your life. Bitterness is not the answer to your problems.

Well, while certainly a less than politically correct article, I won’t deny any publication the right to publish mindless garbage. I personally believe that Forbes has a loftier reputation to maintain, but if they want to compete with GQ, Maxim, and FHM, for the misogyny crown, they have every right to attempt it. You as a consumer, likewise, have every right to cancel subscriptions, and let the editors know that their choice of “Career and Leadership” news was not appreciated.

The fact that they seem to have removed the article indicates that this was not a well received article with their readers. I hope that Forbes will continue to focus on actual business issues, not fluff related to opinions and interpretations of research data to suit ones desire to rant.
