Earlier this week, Fox News published a screamingly bad opinion column on the internet. What else is new, right? Well, hang on a second—because they really outdid themselves here. Feast your eyes upon this headline:
Yes, you read that correctly. Writer Suzanne Venker argues in the piece (an excerpt from her book The Alpha Female's Guide to Men & Marriage, which I absolutely refuse to link to) that women are more unhappy than ever because they quit being submissive housewives:
Alpha women aren’t exactly new, but they were once a rarer breed. Today they abound. There are several reasons why, but it’s in large part due to women having been groomed to be leaders rather than to be wives. Simply put, women have become too much like men. They’re too competitive. Too masculine. Too alpha.
That may get them ahead at work. But when it comes to love, it will land them in a ditch.
Woof. And you can imagine what the women of Twitter had to say.
Jeez, if alpha women are this bad, just imagine what the alpha males are like!
