Our thanks to Steve for this. There was a time when women held themselves accountable for their actions and inactions… as men did – and still do, there being no alternative option for men. No longer. Today a woman in the position of this one cannot be judged to be greedy. No, she must have a shopping ‘addiction’, and therefore bear no responsibility for her actions. Women who spend money they (or their hapless partners) cannot afford on shopping are ‘addicts’? Wow. This must be the ultimate gravy-train for therapists and psychologists.
