scimommy: (Mad men beehive)
[personal profile] scimommy
Why isn't this ripping across the web like the Tiger Mom thing? It was posted over a week ago, and I only just saw it. One of the author's credentials is that she writes for Mad Men, scoring her some points as a keen observer of human behavior.

I think her piece makes some excellent points. Personally, I am very partial to #2: you have to pick the right guy. But most of everything else is true, too. Except for #1: angry b*tches manage to get married all the time - usually to men who had previously trampled over some nice, clueless women. (Oh God, I am so judgemental. What the heck do I know, anyway? It's not like I had to weed through tons of unsuitable males to find THE ONE. I lucked out at 18!) Also, #6 doesn't have to hold. If all women who struggled with self-worth couldn't get married, that would leave, oh, about 10% of women available for matrimony.

It is not going to make the waves quite as much as the Tiger Mom thing, simply because it is really not that fresh or controversial. Many of these comments have been made many many times before. Most of her reasons of why some women can't get married are legitimate, although I have no idea how common these situations are.
