Normal The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.

Excerpt: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3881738/


I would read this book if I didn't have to buy it.

Dr. Laura

That was hilarious! Leaving aside the condescending, sexist idea that women are there to cook, keep house and jump into bed whenever their husband wants them to, this sentence in particular pissed me off:

Quote:
or if it's okay to cut him off from sex because they're annoyed about something or just too tired from their busy day
Yes it bloody well is. Apparently our dear Dr Laura isn't familiar with the idea that sex is CONSENSUAL and people are entitled to say no at whatever time and for whatever reason they damn well please. So yes, being tired or in a bad mood is a perfectly good reason to tell your husband to piss off and it's ridiculous for Dr Laura to imply otherwise.

All "Dr." Laura needs is a burqa and she'd fit in perfectly with Taliban-era Afghanistan.

BTW, "Dr." Laura is not a psychologist nor a psychiatrist. Her doctorate is in Physiology only. She is also a licensed MFCC (Marriage, Family, Child Counselor) but not a psychologist. This has been a great misconception of Laura Schlessinger which she has in many ways been willing to perpetuate and exploit. Even when she was in the TV listings she was being called a Psychotherapist, which is totally inaccurate.

Another religious fanatic trying to pose as a professional; thus making a mockery of science in the process.

Shouldn't she be cooking or something instead of writing? Women aren't supposed to work you silly "dr."

Probably because the men who aren't 'very simple creatures' aren't listening to her.

She's no worse than the opposite camp telling women they must be out in the workforce proving themselves, shattering the glass ceilings of the world, eating men for breakfast...I wish these people would all fuck off and stop telling women to adhere ot one stereotype or another. It doesn't matter which one. Be Mrs Housewife, or be Ms CEO. Just be whatever the hell makes you happy. There is nothing wrong with either. there is something wrong with individuals and groups who feel they have a civic duty to drill any stereoptype into any person, male or female.

What a way to degrade both men and women.

She seems to go so far as to call herself Psychotherapist:

Quote:
As a radio talk-show host/psychotherapist, I've got to tell you how remarkably true and sad it is that so many women struggle to hold on to some jerk....

I agree with Angela about the whole "women/men must be one or the other" and God forbid they be both. A relationship goes both ways, both have to support and respect each other. The way 'dr' laura talks it's all down to the woman to conform and sacrifice for "you know, the guy who slays dragons for her and their child every day."

If "Dr" Laura posted here, I'd edit ignore list her.

Angela, very good point.

I do wonder though, why it's still so much harder for women to balance work and family. Men have never been asked to choose.

A lot of men abdicate their family responsibilities and lose out on the real wealth (beyond $$) a family brings.
