13. Huh?
Did someone just time travel here directly from 1955, or maybe 1603?

The writer is wrong, wrong, wrong about women being "required" to do all of the things listed. Being neat and well groomed applies equally to the sexes, and means bathing regularly, wearing clean clothes, and not having too strong a body odor. Perfumes are another issue altogether. Personally I like them.

And I really don't notice the women who voluntarily change their last names on marriage complaining about being oppressed. Although personally, I didn't change my surname when I got married 23 years ago and I'm quite frankly astonished at the women who do.

What I'm most offended by is the statement that when a women "goes out" with a man he's allowed to touch and sleep with her. Excuse me? Are you discussing prostitutes here?

I don't have the patience to refute this drivel point by point, but it's pretty stupid.
