    That first picture is one of the most sexist things I’ve ever seen in my life. In no way does it encourage any form of equality. On here, a serious forum where people are to be listened to and equality is to be encouraged.

    The op-ed about marriage was great until the end, in which she basically repeats MRA drivel that comes down to not “friend-zoning” the poor “beta-male” in favor of the “alpha-male”:

    I am not arguing that women ought to “settle.” I am arguing that we can now expect more of a mate than we could when we depended on men for our financial security, social status and sense of accomplishment. But that requires ditching the Lois Lane syndrome, where we ignore the attractions and attention of Clark Kent because we’re so eager for the occasional fly-by from Superman.

    It’s a pretty terrible conclusion that basically puts the blame on women for her aforementioned marriage stereotypes, which I find condescending and irresponsible.
