It was a dark and stormy night…or, at least, his motives were dark and her response was stormy – it was the evening news, so there’s that. A pundit on national TV intentionally set out to provoke a feminist on his panel. He tweeted beforehand that he was going to do it, it worked spectacularly, and he bragged about it afterward.
That confrontation has stimulated a lot of conversation about women and whether they should work outside the home or not. The pundit’s statements were the extreme evangelical position (intentionally dogmatic and provocative) while the feminist’s were the usual extreme feminist position. I believe both positions are extremely faulty, as they each try to impose their opinion on all women, with no consideration for individual women (or men!) and their situations.
