BREAKING: New York Times op-ed columnist Ross Douthat is just like every girl you know who just moved to Williamsburg and is trying to make it in this big bad city. Why? He positively LOOOOOOOOOOOVES Lena Dunham.
Conservative commentators have found a handy silver lining to disquieting information about sex-selective abortion: It allows them, conveniently, to declare that all abortion should be banned, ever. Forgive us if we're less than credulous about their universal commitment to gender equality.
Ross Douthat, he of the thesis that feminism is the root of all women's unhappiness, has a new thesis: it also causes marital unhappiness and infidelity. Yeah, 'cause that never happened before Feminism ruined Marriage.
I'm starting to suspect that the New York Times is giving increasingly ill-considered and poorly written conservatives column space in an effort to undermine the idea that Republican ideology has any intellectual validity.
A new study about comparative (supposed) happiness levels in women since the 70s has sparked the inevitable conservative response by Ross Douthat that this is what feminism hath wrought. Actually, this is what happens when a self-proclaimed Harvard grad continues to read only the introductions to research papers.
