Through an entirely roundabout path - an e-mail from a woman that I don't know, but who is also on the Google Group for my pal Chris O'Brien's kiddie blog - I received a link and rant on a new Forbes article by Michael Noer entitled "Don't Marry Career Women." Go ahead and read it. Here's an excerpt: "Guys: A word of advice. Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don't marry a woman with a career."
Simply stated: What the fuck?
It's appalling that this is what Forbes passes for business news nowadays. Note that after the uproar from pissed-off bloghers, the news article was hastily repositioned as an opinion piece, and a "counterpoint" was added to reframe the content as part of a balanced-yet-controversial debate. Weak and annoying. Why don't the editors at Forbes simply apologize for the error in judgement? Or, if the editors don't feel that an apology is in order, why aren't they standing behind their original publishing decision?
More on this in the article's discussion forum.
