    Think Progress Right-Wing Pundit Phyllis Schlafly Decries Government Assistance For ?Unmarried Moms?

    70% of unmarried women voted for Obama. And this is because when you kick your husband out, you’ve got to have Big Brother Government to be your provider.

    Schlafly’s argument is specious. She talks about “subsidizing illegitimacy,” but not all single women are mothers. Less than 20 percent are mothers to young children. The rest include millions of widows, millions of young never-married women, and plenty in between — some of whom have kids, but most of whom do not.

    The fact that programs like UI and food stamps help unmarried women is only a byproduct of the system designed to help everyone in need – men and women alike. In fact, men are receiving more UI benefits than women – the unemployment rate for men is a full 2.2 points higher than it is for women.

    All the other errors of feminism flow from this one fundamental error, a counterfactual insistence on the equality of the sexes. Men and women are not the same, and therefore are not equal.

    Apparently, women can only "make it" if they are supported by a "man". Well, at least Phyllis Schlafly isn't targeting the gays anymore. Perhaps she saw how bad she was hurting her son?

    She's actually right. Remove the incentive to keep a husband around and you won't.

    RDean once again hoist on his petard.

    She's right. Anyone who has common sense and is for personal responsibility is always demonized by the left.

    It isn't about women relying on men. It's about men getting off their asses and fulfilling their responsibilities to themselves, to God, to their partners, to their children etc.

    Your sentence doesn't make sense. Did you misspell a word? People used to rely on family instead of government. That is, until government got bigger and bigger and forced people to rely on it.
