What is going on with the women in the U.S. today?
Advertisements [?]
(Please I'm not male ego-manic.) I pose the question just as my wife posed it.

We are seeing the emergence of These female Tea-party candidates and speakers who are basically trying to set the progression of woman back 300 years -as my wife says-- These women have basically said in a round about way a woman should be in the home tending to babies and agreeing with the men.

And what really got my wife off on her rant was an e-mail she got from a friend today who was at work when one of her fellow FEMALE co-workers announced that women having the right to vote was the biggest mistake in America.

She went on to say no woman married she be in the work place because it is two income families that are causing the financial problems we are suffering today. If the Married woman would stay home the employment problem would be nonexistent. She went on to say that no woman should be anything more than a Teacher or receptionist.

My wife's friend pointed out to the woman her hypocrisy and the woman claimed she is in middle management because she has no choice to help support her family now but if things where as she said she'd gladly give up her job to a qualified man.

The woman went on to rant that "The women who played Xena and Gabrielle should be jailed for destroying a man's image. You have these woman running around saving the day no wonder the American family is suffering."

My wife's friend was floored by this woman's point of view my wife is dumbfounded and speechless except to ask What is going on the the Woman in America today.
