We thought this whole mansplaining thing was a big no-no?
Beware women who tell other women the answer to America's problems is for them to embrace a return to "modesty" and their rightful role in the "traditional family."
They are the enemy.https://t.co/a0Aed9BOGs

From HuffPost (sorry!):
Charen’s solution to all of these problems? A renewed focus on ― if not fetishization of ― the traditional family unit, marriage, courtship and modesty. She apparently believes that so many of the problems that plague our culture could be solved if women just slowly backed away from any kind of sexual (and I would argue, by logical extension, social and political) agency and then slowly backed themselves back into the kitchen, preferably after first getting knocked up by their husbands.
It was enough to make me think someone had changed the channel to “The Handmaid’s Tale” when I wasn’t looking.
Allusions to Margaret Atwood’s harrowing dystopian tale about a not-so-distant future where evangelicals rule our once-fair country and make everyone else’s lives a waking nightmare have become so common during the actual waking nightmare we’re collectively experiencing that they’re now downright cliche. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t apt or shouldn’t be taken seriously.
The traditional family isn’t a dystopian tale.
But hey, thanks for the lecture, MAN.
Beware any book critique that begins with the critic admitting that he didn’t bother to read the book. #lazyjournalism

Ha! Good point. Noah admits at the beginning of his article that he has not actually read the book he’s complaining … err … writing about.
Lol! Better yet, beware male feminists telling women who they should listen to.

‘Male feminist’ still makes us laugh.
Who in the hell are you to tell women who to listen to? #StayInYourLane

Hear us ROAR!
Stop telling women how they should behave. I believe you people call this "mansplaining".

Oh look. A man telling me who to listen to. ?

Silly women, listen to the man because he knows best.
There aren’t enough eye-rolls in this world for this article.
