In his recent post on the Spearhead, Jack Donovan linked to this stomach turning piece from July of last year in the Atlantic (be sure to watch the slideshow). What struck me first about the piece was the image above of women escaping the horror of being trapped in marriage as well as the unbelievably blunt subheading:
The author is ending her marriage. Isn’t it time you did the same?
Normally the media takes the trouble to encode this bit of feminist wisdom more subtly before broadcasting it out for consumption by women of the west.
The piece is by Sandra Tsing Loh, just one in a long line of despicable feminist attention whore writers who seem to think that every time they blow their nose they are at the vanguard of some powerful new trend.
In late January of this year, she wrote the following in an Op Ed piece in the NY Times:
I am stricken with the peculiar curse of being a 21st-century woman who makes more than the man she’s living with …
I don’t know how it’s going for my sisters, but as my 40s and Verizon bills and mortgage payments roll on, I seem to have an ever more recurring 1950s housewife fantasy.
I’m truly at a loss for words.
I hope her ex husband is focusing on raising their two poor young girls and sheltering them from the unmitigated disaster they have for a mother. I also wish the national media would shelter the millions of other children she wishes to do the same thing to with her continuing attempt to transform millions of other women’s lives into the abject failure she has made of her own.
