Quoting verbatim from the lovely lurker who sent me this in email yesterday:
Look, even in these tough economics times we can still find the time to be contemptuous of women and their frivolous pursuits
I’m not saying it’s such a hardship to have to cook your own meals or go to pilates class, but sheesh. Everyone is cutting back on expenses, yes, even the rich, but to focus on what the women give up (to the exclusion of men) seems like a good excuse for some misogyny rather than anything else. Look how hopeless the trophy wives are *rolls eyes*
Yes, where’s the article mocking the bankers and stockbrokers for their tewwible twoubles as they cut back on cigars, sports cars and private golf coaching? Even where it mentions that wealthy adulterers are having to cut back expenditure on their mistresses, it still manages to mock the women (both the gold-digging mistress and the oblivious wife) while essentially giving the men a free pass.
Sounds to me like a gold medal winning double standard.
