Just When You Thought Overt Sexism Might Be on the Wane

Standard

Yes, progress goes in fits and starts. This we know. Still, every time a public figure gets pilloried for their sexism, you expect the subsequent humiliation to act as a deterrent to future outbursts of the same kind. Alas, some people never learn.

Put more simply, I came across an article this morning that caught me by surprise because it seemed like a ghost of misogyny’s past. Its title was this:

Rise in Female Breadwinners Means America is a Loser

Succint. And lest you think the title of the article is merely hyperbole designed to draw in eyeballs, rest assured it is not. Go ahead. Click on the link. You’ll see exactly what I saw, not just a case against the equality of the sexes but also the assertion that the end of patriarchy would lead to moral anarchy.

Sadness, no?
