You’ve all heard about the gender wage gap myth and the lies feminists have been telling women since the 1960’s. Feminism has done more to destroy male/female relationships, and women in general, than any other ideology I can think of.
But perhaps there’s hope. Maybe, just maybe, millennials, and particularly millennial women, aren’t buying it anymore. Maybe natural instinct is starting to take over again and replace liberal lies and lunacy.
First, we have an article from CNBC — the mainstream press, no less — headlined “Millennial women are ‘worried,’ ‘ashamed’ of out-earning boyfriends and husbands.”
And in a second piece from the…wait for it…New York Times, we are asked the question, “Do Millennial Men Want Stay-at-Home Wives?”
Stop. The. Presses. We have a two-fer here. First, this destroys the gender wage gap myth. Second, this destroys the “a-woman-needs-a-man-like-a-fish-needs-a-bicycle” myth of liberal feminism.
Here’s the takeaway from the first article:
“Largely, though, Ford reports, earning more has negative repercussions for women. They feel anxious, even resentful. ‘Unlike the traditional trajectory of men who earn more, or are sole financial providers, most of these millennial women either believe out-earning their partners is temporary, or lament the idea that it may not be,’ she reports.”
But there’s more. According to research cited in the aforementioned NYT piece, “In 1994, only 42 percent of high school seniors agreed that the best family was one where the man was the main income earner and the woman took care of the home. But in 2014, 58 percent of seniors said they preferred that arrangement.”
I’m not sure of the how’s and the why’s of this attitude shift, but perhaps, just perhaps, millennials who have had to grow up in a more progressive era than their parents are rejecting progressive ideas, at least as they relate to family, and are returning to the more tried and true methods of the older generations.
