An Article On The Marriageability Of Career Women And The Divorce Prospects Thereof
. Plus, a rebuttal.
I actually stole this from metaquotes
, in which there is an excellent response to this article which has been quoted here
The (first) article quoted is, to be fair, a summary of statistics and findings from various marriage studies. I'm willing to give the man the benefit of the doubt; he is writing a paper
based on some data
, which he may or may not even give a shit about - all of us college students should recognize this! However, even a total dumbass
in this day and age should have realized that he was basically writing cannon fodder: summarizing the data in this way is guaranteed to piss people off omg
. His tone of voice denotes him as a wanker, basically. Sorry.
OK, here: women with degrees are more likely to be confident about themselves, their careers, their appearance, and, in general, their entire lifestyles. (This is a broad generalization. Do not wank.) Women with degrees are less likely to "need a man" - for financial support, for stability, for self-esteem, for the whole stereotypical nine yards.
Women with degrees are just as likely
a man, but they are going to be looking for a different kind of happiness, one that they themselves cannot provide,
because it requires two people
. They will be looking for support, for acceptance, for happiness, and for love. (Not in that order perhaps). And
these are all things that the stereotypically-traditional man sure don't give a shit about supplying
. I know my gender-stereotyping is showing here - that's the point. This is a broad generalization.(Oh, okay. This argument doesn't take into account women who, in fact, want women. Don't wank. I am starting to think women who want women may be the smart ones and eventually will rule the world!!!.)( Oh, lordy. Soooo many things to say. )
Wow, tangents. Hi. Nice of you to drop by!
AAAAAAAAAANYWAY THE ARTICLE. Have a read, it'll at least keep you amused.
