    Reference: Slate, May 29, 2013: The Men of Fox News Freak Out Over Female Breadwinners

    Fox News gathered an all male panel of pundits to discuss the Pew Research report that four out of ten households with children now have a female breadwinner. The Fox panel included Lou Dobbs, Erick Erickson, and Juan Williams. "to explain that, under no uncertain terms, the disappearance of male economic dominance signals the end of life as we know it." From Slate:

    Choice phrases tossed around included: "disintegration of marriage," "society dissolve around us," and "something going terribly wrong in American society." Lou Dobbs intimated that women's escape from economic dependence turned them into killers: "And those are the children who survive!" This is in reference to all those money-grubbing ladies having abortions on their lunch break.

    Erick Erickson, had the most eye opening statement in "trying to 'splain to the ladies that "science" says they're a servant class put here for the benefit of men":

    "I’m so used to liberals telling conservatives that they’re anti-science. But liberals who defend this and say it is not a bad thing are very anti-science. When you look at biology, when you look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complimentary role."

    This all male panel was rebuked by the likes of Fox's own Meagan Kelly.

    I can't believe that happened. I had stated that the move by the GOP and Tea Party to attract minorities could make things difficult for the Democrats in 2016 with a chance of mid term elections.
    I know the GOP and Tea Party would prefer all minorities should only live in certain areas, be happy with what they have, stay healthy so they don't increase medical expenses, and etc. I include those living below the poverty level in this minority group for this discussion.

    These people from Fox News have redefined "Shooting yourself in the foot".

    What can we do to keep this going?

    Those in control, at the other end of the strings, are pretty smart and will smooth it over. I'm sure the feelings expressed are held by many, both male and female. As I have mentioned that the Republicans will be romancing the minorities I think they are doing the same thing to women.

    Of course Erick Fisher left out that the Black Widow eats the male when she is done with him. I'd say that the male in that part of nature is definitely not the dominate. It's about time for women to spread their wings and fly. Educated men know that the woman is a part of our life and should be an equal partner. Women are just identifying themselves as capable of doing a better job because men have become lazy, corrupt and much too arrogant to be useful. It makes good business sense to give the job to the most capable person and women are proving they are the best person for the job. Although wage scales are somewhat skewed to giving less for women doing the same work as their male counterparts, this will change as society continues to evolve.

    Go for it........girl!
