Rachel Ragg: ‘I spend a fortune to send my girl to private school – so she’ll marry rich and never work.’

The headline may be off-putting, but the article’s interesting and makes numerous nuanced points about gender roles, personal fulfilment, family life and happiness:


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Interesting that she is in fact on the same page as feminists in that there is no room in her analysis for men to be more than walking wallets. Disappointed that her 30 years older husband’s retirement effectively prevented her very early retirement to play house. She appears to feel women should be entitled to a life of comfort and ease and unearned status . Men had to fulfil the breadwinner role when both male and female had shorter lives and wives could expect to be pregnant or nursing for many years just by the number of children. Today she is expecting the entitlement with little of the hard work or commitment of the pre birth control generations. Much the same as those married to welfare benefits or “maintenance”. In fact a Belfort Bax feminist. Using appeals to sentiment to justify female entitlement. Her preferred lifestyle reliant on the labour of a man. Even allowing for the need to nurture young children with barely two children per pairing.Women living well into their eighties should not expect a lifelong free pass. As always female privilege financed by males . Gender feminists only differ in wanting men(tax payers) to pay for this privilege of choice rather than one man(husband).
