If we could all just listen to Phyllis Schlafly, we could get this country to where it belongs: in the first part of the last century.

Being married makes a man care more about his family’s expectations and future because he sees his family as enduring. It also makes him more faithful and committed to his partner. Marriage makes men directly protective of their wives, and living in a home with their daughters gives them the opportunity to be directly protective of them as well. Marriage also creates indirect protection for wives and daughters, because married women and their children tend to live in safer neighborhoods.

So what’s the answer for women who worry about male violence? It’s not to fear all men. It’s to reject the lifestyle of frequent “hookups,” which is so much promoted on college campuses today, while the women pursue a career and avoid marriage.[su_center_ad]

By the way, Shlafly hasn’t exactly lived a life tied up with apron strings.

    Umm, in which ‘f’ing universe, Phyllis?

    Her bio on the Eagle Forum website says she’s been an active conservative leader since 1964. How come she gets to have a career and get rich off the cons but other women don’t? Also, what alien technology is she using to preserve her hair? She looked just the same in 1972 when she was fighting to diminish womens rights

      She gets to have a career because she’s special, but not in the way she thinks. I’d say she’s special because she pushes a special brand of nuttiness.

        she was touched by GOD’s special stick.

          his special “bit” poked her and she aint been the same since.

      She was fond of Elsa Lanchester in Bride of Frankenstein

    Chapter 4 in “Christian Values and the Traditional American Family”:
    “The Wife with a Career — a case for justified spousal abuse”.

    Sorry, Phyllis…but I know quite a few women who would tell you to your face–in rather blunt-and-foul terms–that you are not only wrong, but also that you are living in a past that never existed.
    Time marches on…to the future, not the past.
    And you, madame, seem to be doing fine for not being a “stay-at-home” housewife yourself!

      man… i was gonna say that.

    The Crypt Keeper says what…?

    • Elliot J. Stamler August 30th, 2014 at 3:36 am

      Gee, I don’t know how many readers of this column are old enough to remember the Crypt Keeper. But she isn’t the Crypt Keeper or his buddy, the Vault-Keeper…she’s the third member of the Mad Comics horror triumvirate, the Old Witch. (anybody out there remember those comics–they were great.)

    always wanted to be a house man. Frozen dinners, quick vacuum, and then off on my bike with the guys and girls who have lives while dutiful fool husband sits at his desk thinking his cubicle is heaven.

    Stay at homes are the ones who get beat because they are isolated, if they worked people would notice that they were getting beat.

    Men treat women they know have other options than just sitting around waiting to get beaten a LOT better because they know they can and will leave.

    So that old bag is just trying to get more women beaten or killed.

    Is this story an example of the War on Woman? Are the past commentators it’s judgmental soldiers? I think if this woman gives at least one woman a foundation through guidance they are more apt to lead a better life then bitterly sitting on web sites ranting about lifestyles they could never have.

    • austinandjusin August 30th, 2014 at 6:49 pm

      But the foundation isn’t solid. To blithely assume that if a man is married automatically he is a better person that is he is more protective of his family etc. just hasn’t been backed up by facts. If a man is going to be a good partner he will be a good partner regardless whether or not he is married. If a man is going to be a good father, they will be a good father whether or not he is married. Too many married men cheat on their wives, have children on the side, and aren’t good parents. Marriage means a commitment some men give lip service but not action to.
      And if marriage is the desired goal for all women, why do so many say while in a relationship, if I ever get out of this, God knows I’m never doing this again.

    That witch is still around??

    A recent statistic I read stated that 60% of CONVICTED rapists were married or had a steady partner at the time they raped. Since some rapists haven’t been caught or convicted yet, the percentage is likely higher. Does this lamebrain think that a rapist will walk away if he sees a wedding/engagement ring (or she says, “sorry honey, but I already have a boyfriend”)?
    This is a woman who for 40+ years has made a career of telling women not to have careers.
    I remember when she fought against the Equal Rights Amendment with nonsense such as stating that it would require coed bathrooms–guess she never noticed the shared facilities on an airplane.
