Talking Phyllis Schlafly Has Relationship Advice

This seemed more fitting in this forum than the news forum.

Bwahahaha. Phyllis Schlafly is a relic, and continues to prove it every time she opens her mouth.

I honestly thought she was deceased. Guess not.

I've always wished she would practice what she preaches and stay at home.

I did too! I am so bad about that kind of thing.

Is her viewpoint in the minority or majority? Is it considered outdated? Do younger generations not subscribe to that?

Reading the article, I think her logic is faulty. Even if somone subscribed to her viewpoints, her "ergo" conclusion is a stretch.

I've always made more than my husband, and this has been a non-issue. If he was the kind of person for whom this was an issue, I doubt we'd have ended up together. I just don't think as many people are as worried about this as what Phyllis thinks.

My mom is of Phyllis's generation, and has had many choice words to say about Phyllis over the years.

I've always made more than my husband because I have 2 more degrees. It has been a non-issue; I think he's just glad for the money.

In the seventies, I was at an agricultural convention at the U of Missouri and a female master's student there commented, "You're working on your doctorate? You'll never get a husband."

I personally don't care whether my future husband or I makes more money, as long as we're both well-off and financially stable. I would guess that many of my peers feel similarly to me in this regard, though I can't speak for everyone.

Also, I have never heard of this Phyllis Schlafly woman before, and all I can think of every time I read her name is Phyllis from The Office. I cannot shake this association.

I don't need a husband, I'm going to keep a couple of 20-somethings in constant rotation by buying them nice jewelry and kicking them out when I feel like eating frosting straight from the can.

I miss The Office.

Would it help if Phyllis had some Bible quotes to back this stuff up? That would prove she isn't making this stuff up. It is factual and comes from an authoritative long lasting source.

Her niece supposedly speaks to the younger generations. I think there are generations of people in this country and around the world who agree with this crew. Some of these people may talk a good game but their life mirrors what Phyllis and crew are saying.

Look her up. She's a "famous" anti-feminist. If it is meant to help women, she is against it.

What always bothered my mom about Phyllis is that she made a career out of doing exactly what she preached women shouldn't do. She certainly wasn't staying at home...she was running around telling everyone that women shouldn't work, while running her organization, running for office, writing books, working the lecture circuit, etc. What a hypocrite.

Looks like her niece is just as much of a self-promoter.

ETA: I should clarify that my mom was fighting the good fight as a 1950s era college graduate...one of only 3 women in the business school at Michigan State, and she had to deal with a lot of blatant male chauvenism. One of her father's brothers actually asked him why they were wasting money sending a daughter to college. It really irked her that Phyllis was running around building her business on the premise that other women should stay at home.

Too true! Sometimes it's hard to see with that big plank in your eye. She is what she proclaims is wrong in the world.
