    It sounds like the argument is that men are more likely to succeed if they don’t have to worry about managing the day-to-day activities aka a housewife.

    While it may be helpful for his career, it generally comes at an overall decrease in happiness for the homemaker.

    Society is harder than ever, with restaurants being more expensive, childcare difficult to sort out and far more expensive than food, and so forth. A trade wife makes all those obstacles go away.

    The actual answer is society needs to step up its game and support couples better, because failing social safety nets has an inverse correlation to rising misogyny.

        Yeah, I don’t believe either myself or the article are trying to assert that singles should be left hanging. The point is that failing social safety nets mechanically lead misogynistic outcomes.

    Three times, that’s how many times I read the title before I realized that it was sexIST not sexiEst.

    Suddenly made more sense.
