    Schlafly Syndrome Redux

    April 25, 2014

    I never realized how much I missed Phyllis Schlafly until she jumped back into the fray over the debate on equal pay for women. Schlafly, founder of yesteryear’s conservative Eagle Forum, is the namesake for what I long ago dubbed the Phyllis Schlafly Syndrome: Whenever men in control face women demanding something or opposing what the men are doing, the men find a woman to front for them. Back in the day, that was almost always Phyllis Schlafly. This is supposed to signal to the public that women are actually split down the middle on the issue in question, so no one has to pay attention to it.

    It did not surprise me that Schlafly came up with the most unique problem caused by the equal pay controversy: Women prefer partners that make more than they do and men prefer to be the higher earning partner. Translation: “Be careful young women, because if you demand that higher pay, you may never find a husband.”

    Seriously, Phyllis, you’re showing your age. READ MORE AT: http://domemagazine.com/mberman/mb042514
