I think you misunderstood Mythago's statement.

That's certainly possible but the way I read it she pulled her gotcha out of thin air by quoting me out of context, when the context clearly shows that I'm referencing SAHM directly from her previous comment. She didn't write SAH work, nor did I interpret SAH work as being the equivalent of SAHM.

Look, her word count in that comment was low and she could have explained her gotcha a little more fully thus avoiding such misunderstandings.

Further, any English majors in the house? What is the rule for putting text within quotation marks, such as "denigration of SAH work." Doesn't this give the impression that the quote is referencing something that I wrote, when really it's the creation of the commenter and she wants to emphasize it?

It gives the impression that she is separating out the items of comparison.

"The last thing many enlightened people want to do is seek out feminists to marry."

That all depends on how you define feminism, Tango. Where I come from, a male feminist is someone who doesn't beat you for not getting him a beer. :-)

Ahh, but what happens when you tell him that because he didn't beat you, you know think of him as a feminist and you hand him one of those "girly" drinks as a gesture of enlightened appreciation :)
