What Does It Mean to Be a Good Wife? - Readers' Comments - NYTimes.com
Does anyone bother to edit these articles, or try to ensure that they are logically coherent in some fashion with external reality? Did history begin in 1950, as in, "those days" to which the author referred. I'm sure it's horrible to be upper middle-class and oppressed. This is what I've learned: All we can be sure of is that the Dark Ages of WASP women must have been around 1950-1959. At some point they crawled out of the tunnels and muck in which they lived like, emerged into the light, dumped their white aprons for law degrees, and now we live in a world in which one person will never try to control another. Whatever myth works for you, I suppose.
