More Female Breadwinners = More Abortions

Oh boy, oh boy. Remember that report that found that 4 in 10 households are now headed by women who are out-earning their partners? Though it’s pretty cool news, and reflective of how much can change in 50 years, we were still a little bit disappointed that people still think it’s weird or less desirable for men to stay at home with the kids. You’d think people’s attitudes would adjust now that it’s starting to make more and more financial sense for women to be working outside the home. We wondered who these disappointing, set-in-their-ways folk might be.
Well as it turns out at least four of them are on this FOX panel! Here’s a quick roundup of all of the things more women breadwinners leads to:
- Hurting families
- Hurting science
- More abortions
- More high school dropouts
That’s a lot of things! Call us crazy, but we think what might hurt families more in this economy is not having a second parent who is able step up to support their dependents, or have the single earner be a mother with dad staying home to save on childcare costs. And Science seems like it can take care of itself. But we suppose those FOX dudes are just doing what they have to do to stay employed. After all, if it weren’t for this study, what would they have to be indignant about?
