Personally I'd rather be single than married to a cheating liar.

Seriously, for her own sake I hope she has a wake-up call and realizes that not being married isn't the end of the world. It does sound like she has issues due to her childhood and she's honest about that, but she's still got a pretty big blind spot.

You know, it's one thing to resist the over-the-top commercialism of the day, but I've noticed this year in particular (not just in here) it seems it's quite ok to be openly misogynistic.

You want to get married. It's taken a while to admit it. Saying it out loud -- even in your mind -- feels kind of desperate, kind of unfeminist, kind of definitely not you, or at least not any you that you recognize.
I have no problem saying I'd like to be married someday . I definitely wouldn't agree with those who do think it's anti-feminist to want that.

But the truth is you're pissed. At your mom. At the military-industrial complex. At Sarah Palin. And it's scaring men off.
Oh, crap. I've complained about two of those things on more than one occasion. Guess I'm screwed, then .

Sure, being in a constantly pissy state isn't exactly appealing, but eh, everyone's tastes are different, for one thing, and for another, everyone's going to be pissy. Men included.

Anywho, it's probably wise to not take long-term marriage advice from someone who's been through it three times, so meh.

I can understand a guy being a bit wary if you constantly complain about your mom, but being mad about the military-industrial complex and the continued existence of Sarah Palin in public life just proves you have two brain cells to rub together. Any guy who would run because of that isn't worth having.

Fully agreed on that.

Why You're Not Married
This woman does have a lot of good advice, I say she hit a few nails right on the head.

If you're a woman looking to make a name for yourself as expert dispenser of advice to other women, apparently the best way to go about it is to loudly tell them in no uncertain terms how pathetic, unworthy, and pitifully self-deluded they are. This shows inner strength and self-confidence, which will inspire their admiration and interest.

is this (the article) a case of a self-loathing female?

serious question.

She's a Hollywood screenwriter, of course she's full of self-loathing.

That's what I was wondering a bit, too, given what show she writes for, was she writing a satirical piece in the style of the attitudes presented on that show?

If that's the case, spot on job. If she was serious, however...ehhhh.
