Echidne of the Snakes (the name is very Mists of Avalon, but we'll forgive her) is calling on a boycott of eminient business publication Forbes for a recent article warning of the dangers of marrying career women, written by executive editor Michael Noer. He writes:
"Guys: A word of advice. Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don't marry a woman with a career."
And then goes on to cite many studies that show that "career" women are not as happy in the their marriages, nor do they make good wives.
Good night and shut the door!! Career woman? I thought that term went out with Diane Keaton in Baby Boom- only to be replaced with "stressed out blackberry-obsessed multi-tasking average American female."
I guess I'd better leave work now and get cooking for the return of my man tonight. Slippers and a martini, coming up! Actually, that doesn't sound so bad. Maybe I'll have a martini too.
