The above article by Suzanne Venker, published just a few days ago, puts marriage neatly in a box, where men are the breadwinners, and women live a balanced life taking care of the home and children. (This article is also heteronormative.) It is obviously not wrong if a man and woman marry and choose this model for their lives, but it is wrong for Venker to say that this is the only good model. Many others exist; men can take care of the house or children while women work, or they can divide the work evenly. The “research” in this article consisted of sweeping generalizations. The one that bothered me most was: “That women prefer part-time work is simply irrefutable…And it’s even true among Ivy League graduates!” The articles she cites for these generalizations only use specific examples. Yet she uses them to perpetuate harmful stereotypes of what homes and families should look like.
