Taking stupidity and feminism to a new level, this freak wants the term husband done away with because it's demeaning to women... Oh, LOL.... This is rich...

Carrie Sloan is a somewhat prominent NY magazine writer/editor, and she’s penned a piece about her recent marriage: Call Him My 'Wusband' -- Why I Vote We Abolish 'Husband' and 'Wife'

Her premise is that there’s something wrong with being a “wife.” It’s somehow demeaning, it lowers her social standing, something…well, she’s not quite sure.

For me, it conjures up centuries of well-worn stereotypes: Women in bonnets bent over hot stoves, and '60s Stepford-types handing over martinis with tight smiles -- nothing resembling the thoroughly-2010 relationship I have with the guy I love…

So, while I was Teflon-sure about my decision to marry him, it was society's expectations of what that meant that tied me up in knots. My fears worsened this Christmas, when after three months of marital bliss, I received no fewer than three aprons as gifts. To be fair, these weren't exactly Betty Crocker throwbacks: One was sequined and from Anthropologie, but ... still.

It turns out that one reason Carrie got aprons as gifts is because her friends know she happens to like to cook.

Meanwhile, she’s also apparently uncomfortable letting her husband strut around as, well, a husband. So since he lends a hand with housework (and what guy under the age of 70 doesn’t?), she’s declared him her wussband…er “wusband.”

The wuss here is Ms. Sloan (of course she kept her name. No patriarchal oppression for her!), who is so cowed by vague societal expectations that she has to conform her life to her fear of conforming to them.

Lady—grow a set. You want the convenience of a shared last name, then share it. You want to be married to a man? Then let him be a husband. It doesn’t mean he’ll spend the rest of your lives together in a wifebeater t-shirt watching WWE from his recliner. I promise.



This loon sounds like that jackass Hillary Clinton who said that she could have stayed home and baked cookies, but, instead, decided to do something with her life...

You must remember that to these loons, they believe there is no such thing as consensual sex and that even sex between a husband and wife is rape.

Here's the article.. (http://www.lemondrop.com/2010/02/22/why-we-should-abolish-husband-and-wife/) Just look at the picture of those two-the nutjob and the wusband.. And read their self-written rhyming wedding vows for a good chuckle.. Any man that would marry a woman like that has mental stability issues.. Can you imagine how degrading and agonizing sex must be for those two..

Couples are free to manage household tasks any way they see fit. This isn't an edgy, transgressive area of life that requires a lot of social buy-in to work. The fact that she is worried about how others view her role in the marriage says a lot about her own insecurity and not much about modern marriage.

It must be awful to go through life viewing every little decision and every little gift through the lens of post-modern feminist politics. I can't think of anything more exhausting or spirit-killing.

I see her wusband as looking and talking like Napoleon Dynamite's dad.

I'm a feminist, but this woman is just crazy. She spends so much time worried about stupid little things that she misses the big picture of what feminism is supposed to be about-equality for women. Feminism isn't about changing the language to pretend women are equal.

on edit-I followed stinner's link and I take back the Napoleon Dynamite comment. This guy looks like he has some skeletons in his closet, closet being the operative word.
