12. This would be hilarious if
it hadn't warped a whole generation. A little historical perspective: in 1955, most women were housewives, either by choice or by default, and these "tips" were intended to help them keep their jobs. The most unsettling thing about the article is the language of subservience--and it compares quite closely with the advice of conservatives like Dr. Laura. How far we've come! And how precarious our position even now. Get those @#$%^ conservatives out of the White House, the Supreme Court, and Congress unless you fancy a return to the days of deciding which nice starched apron you'll wear when your Lord and Master returns to you at the end of the day.
