Colbert Report  
So a couple nights ago on the Colbert Report the guest was a woman who wrote a book all about how feminism ruined women's lifes and forced them out of the private sphere and devalued their domestic role/duty. It was really heinous. The woman was saying that society is better off when women rely entirely, financially, emotionally, etc. on her husband and that the husband should have complete sexual control over her at all times and if she didn't want to "give it up to him" then she was crazy and he should be allowed to take her to the doctor to get a lobotomy. wow. thats f*cked up sh*t.

"and devalued their domestic role/duty"

Hard to devalue something assigned so little value to begin with...

Did her husband appear on the show? (And shouldn't she have been at home cleaning rather than devaluing her domestic role by appearing on a tv show? I hate how the women complain about feminism while so obviously taking advantage of the options it has given them.)

ha ha that is exactly what my girlfriend said..."who;s cooking and caring for her family tonight?" and also it so hypocritical of her to be obviously making money off her books (I am pretty sure she published more than one) and contributing to her family as money earner when it is convenient for her but the second she wants to preach to other women to stay in their place then its OK? no. come on. Its like women who have had an abortion and then turn pro-life. It was ok for them to have an abortion when it was convenient for them and then the second another women wants to excersise her right to chose, she opposes it! XXXCrapXXX.
