Clearly Forbes is getting lots of traffic to its site as a result of this sensationalist article. There’s an obvious solution for those that object to this sort of nonsense, not to mention its publication of extremely lazy journalism and citation of dubious and one-sided sources. Cancel your subs to a piece of fluff like Forbes and start receiving a decent business magazine like The Economist.

Why waste the money? It’s only a matter of time before The Economist publishes an article that offends your narrow-minded, politically-correct, feminist-brainwashed little brain and you have to start all over again.

Dear dear angelus,

its not that every media outlet will sooner or later offend the HIGHLY offendable politically correct feminists.

but lets substitute another group for career girls:

Don’t Marry Jewish People
How well do careers, marriage and jewish people mix? Not well, says social scientists…..

DO YOU GET MY POINT HERE??? The point is – its not about being politically correct to the n’th degree. its about the fact that when you take academic journals and twist every single statistic to fit your sad pathetic viewpoint, you can convince a LOT of people to do ALOT of stupid things, like um, killing off an entire segment of a population.

some might say that i am taking this way too far with this analogy, but let you find ME a society where women have no rights and education and careers – Iraq? Afganistan? Would you really REALLY want to live in a world like that?

When women are not celebrated for their individual strengths – be they in the board room the kitchen or the bedroom or the class room – ALL of society suffers.

So why not support EVERYONE – male and female – for what they do as individuals, rather than say that ALL women should not work. or that ALL Men should marry women without careers. in this day and age – women don’t graduate from HS then wait by the phone for their Prince Charming. They are getting college and graduate degrees in greater numbers than men are.

Maybe thats the reason for the backlash? Men can’t hack the competition so they write asinine articles like Michael Noer’s.

dear Angelus,

As a journalist, nothing offends my narrow-minded feminist-brainwashed little brain more than crap reporting. But if you want to swallow everything you read hook, line and sinker without question, go ahead, my pet

I’ve seen innumerable sexist jokes by women about men that never seem to get feminist hackles up. grrlpower, you are a hypocrite, just like every other feminist sexist bigot in America. The double standard is alive and well in the bigoted feminist perspective in the US today.

No worries, though, men – there are women all over the world who still value femininity. grrlpower, hope you’ve saved up for your hormone supplements and kitty litter that you’ll need in the future!
