Keeping women in familial servitude served a lot of men very well, and there’s no doubt that there’s going to be some moaning that this privilege is fast fading, but it’s a matter of priorities. Women’s rights trumps men’s comforts and pleasures, and all the hysterical language describing the latter as “broken families” doesn’t change that. Men have two choices in the face of this fairly straightforward feminist worldview: Kick and scream and demand the right to oppress women to get the cooking/cleaning/childcare advantages, or accept the reality of things with grace and realize that there’s advantages for men in an egalitarian family structure.
