Capture of the original picture above, and the adjusted article below:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/02/05/to-be-happy-must-admit-women-and-men-arent-equal/

From the Fox New article (an op-ed):

As products of divorce, the modern generation has few role models for lasting love. That alone is a problem. But young women have an added burden: theyve been raised in a society that eschews marriage. Theyve been taught instead to honor sex, singlehood and female empowerment.

and

Men and women may be capable of doing many of the same things, but that doesnt mean they want to. That we dont have more female CEOs or stay-at-home dads proves this in spades.

Unless, of course, youre beholden to feminism. In that case, youll believe the above is evidence of discrimination. Youll believe what feminists taught you to believe: that gender is a social construct.

Those of us with children know better. We know little girls love their dolls and boys just want to kick that ball. This doesnt mean men cant take care of babies or women cant play sports. It just means each gender has its own energy that flows in a specific direction. For Gods sake, let it flow.

The one in the suit clearly looks like a guy. Still, Fox News could've researched it better.

Why does this woman hate women so muchJML897

  That is a misconception, first of all using the word "hate" is very misleading or lieing.  She doesnt like certain female behaviors that are in her opinion detrimental to society.  It is the liberal mindset to throw around words with severe negative connotations and apply them for emotional effect.  It is irrational because nowhere does she say or hint that she hates women, yet you say she does.  There are plenty of women who dont like the behavior of their own gender, believe me, I know.  :P  I think the point is that there is actually hatred towards femininity, and an overempathising masculine roles, becaues feminine roles are inferior, right?  The masculinization of women if you will, I notice a lot of lesbians kind of try to be as masculine as they can.

Marriage equality is anti-American and must be stopped before it poisons the minds of children and everyone turns into reverse gay vampires.

You must be truly stupid if you think this is something only liberals do. Or even mostly.

Its hard to claim women were oppressed in a nation in which men were expected to stand up when a lady enters the room or to lay down their lives to spare women life.

That body part can be removed. No man has the control and power over a woman, both sexes have the right to live their lives instead of being bound by restrictive society enforced gender roles that limit potential. Neither is inferior nor superior to the other, only narrow minded and insecure fools tend to believe such nonsense that males are the by all and end all of all life. A society can't grow and progress if it restricts half of itself for not being one particular sex. And Fox News is rubbish, narrow minds determined to spread ignorance and hatred in a determination to keep human progress back because they fear change for the better.
