Women are the Breadwinners? A Sensitive Subject for Fox News.

If you don’t hate Fox News yet, feel free to leave this blog at any time. Or welcome to the internet, since it must be your first time here.

According to recent research, 40% of households have a woman as the primary breadwinner of the household. According to Fox News, our children’s lives are in danger and our marriages are disintegrating due to that fact. Not to mention all the children who’s lives were ruined after Roe v Wade due to the fact that they were aborted. This is a CATASTROPHIC issue, people!

“Left? Right? I don’t see how you can argue this!”

Biologically men are more dominant? Animals have to a male dominant figure, with the women being simply complimentary? Okay, let’s not acknowledge the fact that many species of animals involve females leaders, not to mention the females that kill or eat the male after insemination. These men, however, sit in front of a camera and criticize those who do not share their identical belief set for a living, calling it “news”. Not exactly a challenging profession in any way, shape or form, especially considering the complete and utter lack of knowledge necessary, at least in the case of Fox News.

Yes, it must be so challenging for the children of women forced to work during tough economic times to overcome what their mother has done to them. How dare she leave the kitchen in order to make enough to put a shirt on her child’s back! How dare she think for herself, or be successful in any way, if it means the man might be considered less so! How dare she leave the home for any reason!

The fact that four men feel so entitled as to sit behind a camera and lament the fact that more women work now than they did in 1950 is precisely what is wrong with this country. Women making more money than men? Why, that’s clearly worse than homophobia, religiousย intolerance, our failing education system, hunger, poverty, school shootings, etc. Women having jobs, and working so that their families can eat, is clearly what is setting this country back from achieving it’s full potential.

Designers I Adore: Kate Spade

If my paycheck would allow it, I would live in Kate Spade and J. Crew. Unfortunately, the life of a college student is not one that generally allows for the spending of excessive amounts of money on items that aren’t essential to survival. That doesn’t mean I can’t window shop, though, and Kate Spade is one of my absolute favorite places to do so.

The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrman’s glittering retelling of Fitzgerald’s classic was quite possibly the most anticipated films of this year. The trailers were all filled with the images ostentatious parties and the glamour of the 1920’s that anyone who has passed through a high school English class will recall from what is considered to be one of the great American novels. Although I will say that the film holds up as an adaptation, I still left feeling fairly disappointed.
