Rob Natelson Has a Funny Idea About Women

It’s quite likely that he has a number of peculiar (read antebellum) ideas about women, but I found this tidbit in his paean to Michelle Bachman too funny to ignore. He writes:

On the practical level in the TV age:  Bachmann easily pulls off the challenging feat of looking simultaneously traditionally-feminine and competent.

Strangely enough, I’ve never found it challenging for women to be both competent and “traditionally-feminine.” In fact, I think that both men and women can be quite competent no matter how they fit Professor Natelson’s outdated views on gender, sex, and appearance.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

  • Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this site. Things i would advice people will be to give up this mentality that they’ll buy now and pay out later. Being a society most of us tend to do this for many factors. This includes family vacations, furniture, in addition to items we want. However, you must separate a person’s wants from the needs.

For example it is possible to shop online to economize or you can look at second hand outlets instead of high priced department stores pertaining to clothing.
