GENDER SMACKDOWN FRIDAYS: Yesterday, the Spectator ran an article by one Marty Nemko (KMG made up name alert!) arguing that married women, specifically those with children, don't work enough, because they expect their husbands ("beasts of burden") to manage way more weight than they should reasonably be expected to shoulder. The image on the front page (by one Kevin Steel) is a sketch of a woman gazing imperiously at Sisyphus rolling a boulder up a hill, with the title "Workin' for the Ma'am." Last Friday, we ran a piece by Kelly Torrance on the extremes some American women will go to to get married. I'm beginning to see a pattern here. Maybe we'll run a review of Laura Kipnis' Against Love: A Polemic for next weekend.
